    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?

    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.

    Very much like Jacqueline Bisset this year.

    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.

    Either there was a four-way tie for fifth place, or the AMPAS were just really drunk when tallying the votes.

    That is some catagory. I also feel like the right person one too oddly enough.

    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.

    Imperioli absolutely deserved a Globe win for his work on Sopranos

    That was not the first case like that. 

    9 nominees
    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.

    ^ 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 again

    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.

    Path to War had excellent acting. I’d also go with Sutherland. Haysbert would’ve been good too.
