The nominees for best actor in a TV comedy series are: Baldwin for "30 Rock," Carell for "The Office," Kevin Connolly for "Entourage," David Duchovny for "Californication," and Shalhoub for "Monk."
Nominees for best actor in a TV series, drama, are Gabriel Byrne for "In Treatment," Michael C. Hall for "Dexter," Jon Hamm for "Mad Men," Hugh Laurie for "House," and Jonathan Rhys Meyers for "The Tudors."
Competing for best performance by an actress in a TV series, comedy or musical, are Christina Applegate for "Samantha Who?" America Ferrera for "Ugly Betty," Tina Fey for "30 Rock," Debra Messing for "The Starter Wife" and Mary-Louise Parker for "Weeds."
This year's big Emmy winner, the miniseries "John Adams," also earned several Golden Globe nominations, including best miniseries or motion picture made for television, best performance by an actress for Laura Linney, best performance by an actor for Paul Giamatti, and best supporting actor for Tom Wilkinson.
The Globes are considered a harbinger of things to come later in the awards season, and several of last year's Golden Globe winners went on to receive an Academy Award, including best actor in a drama for Daniel Day-Lewis ("There Will Be Blood"), best actress in a comedy or drama for Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose") and supporting actor for Javier Bardem (" No Country for Old Men").
But there are also exceptions: The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. gave "Atonement" the award for best dramatic picture of the year, but the Oscar went to "No Country for Old Men."

Last January, the Writers Guild of America strike caused actors, writers and directors to boycott the Golden Globes ceremony. What viewers were left with was a telecast of TV reporters announcing the winners. Though the Screen Actors Guild is threatening to go out on strike, the guild won't be tabulating votes until Jan. 23.
So the show will go on as planned Jan. 11 from the Beverly Hilton. The three-hour, star-studded gala will be telecast on NBC.
