(AP) NEW YORK - HBO leads all television networks with nine Golden Globe nominations. Netflix, which didn’t exist as a programming source a couple of years ago, snagged six nominations _ more than stalwarts ABC, CBS and NBC.
Starz and Showtime also had six nominations each.
The Golden Globes set up a potential victory lap for the well-regarded final season of "Breaking Bad," which was nominated for best drama series and earned Bryan Cranston a nod for best actor. After sweeping the drama awards earlier this year, Showtime’s "Homeland" was shut out for the major awards.
Lena Dunham of "Girls" and Don Cheadle of "House of Lies" have a chance to repeat as comedy winners.
