While looking back over the various categories for the Globes, this one caught my eye because of the insane amount of nominees included. At the 2003 Golden Globes ceremony (honoring the best in film & TV in 2002), there were NINE nominees for Best TV Supporting Actor – what the hell? All the other categories had the usual five/six nominees, and then, out of the blue, this shortlist has nine nominees. Was the TV field simply that competitive back then?
The nominees were:
Alec Baldwin, Path to War
Jim Broadbent, The Gathering Storm
Bryan Cranston, Malcolm in the Middle
Sean Hayes, Will & Grace
Dennis Haysbert, 24
Michael Imperioli, The Sopranos
John Spencer, The West Wing
Donald Sutherland, Path to War (eventual winner)
Bradley Whitford, The West Wing
I found that bizarre! Any thoughts?August 8, 2014 at 5:16 pm #326816
Interesting…I haven’t seen the miniseries/movies in this category, but it’s interesting that Donald Sutherland wasn’t even nominated for the Emmy (while Baldwin was). And Haybert’s never been nominated for an Emmy either.August 8, 2014 at 5:54 pm #326817

Very much like Jacqueline Bisset this year.August 8, 2014 at 6:12 pm #326818
And this nomination was the only individual recognition Dennis Haysbert ever got for 24. Besides a pair of noms for SAG Ensemble, nada. That’s a major disgrace.August 8, 2014 at 6:40 pm #326819
Either there was a four-way tie for fifth place, or the AMPAS were just really drunk when tallying the votes.August 8, 2014 at 6:56 pm #326820
That is some catagory. I also feel like the right person one too oddly enough.August 8, 2014 at 7:04 pm #326821
hm.. now I want to see Path of War..August 9, 2014 at 7:04 am #326823
The Globes like defaulting to the movie star veterans in this category. Nothing against Donald Sutherland, who should have been acknowledged far more than he has in his career, but he already won for “Citizen X,” which he was very good in. It’s glaring that a “West Wing” or “Sopranos” guy never won here.August 9, 2014 at 7:06 am #326824
Imperioli absolutely deserved a Globe win for his work on SopranosAugust 9, 2014 at 7:18 am #326825
That was not the first case like that.
1995 Supporting Actress in a TV…
Sonia Braga, The Burning Season
Tyne Daly, Christy
Jane Leeves, Frasier
Laura Leighton, Melrose Place
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Seinfeld
Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne
Miranda Richardson, Fatherland (won)
Leigh Taylor-Young, Picket Fences
Liz Torres, The John Larroquette Show
There were also several years with 6, 7 and once 8 (1977) nominees in this category.August 9, 2014 at 7:25 am #326826
^ How did that happen, I mean what was the reason? Would we ever see that many nominees nowadays? You would think with all the competition on TV now that it would have happened againAugust 9, 2014 at 7:32 am #326827
4-way tie for 5th place (I’d guess Braga, Leighton, Taylor-Young and Torres). It must be it.
I’d love to see it happen again just for the reactions here.
