The article comments on the Golden Globe Awards, Writers Guild of America and SAG Award nominations in the television category in the U.S. The author was surprised about the results because some of the best performing television programs failed to get nods, including Showtime's "Weeds" or "United States of Tara," FX's "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" and Starz's "Party Down." He adds that only HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" got SAG and Writer's Guild Award nominations among cable comedies.
