On the small screen, familiar names such as "Glee," "30 Rock" and "Modern Family" snagged nominations in the best TV series -- comedy category, along with "The Big C," "Nurse Jackie" and "The Big Bang Theory."

Last year's winner for best actor in a comedy TV series, Jim Parsons from "The Big Bang Theory," was again nominated and joined by Alec Baldwin for "30 Rock," Steve Carell for "The Office," Thomas Jane for "Hung" and Matthew Morrison for "Glee."

Baldwin expressed his joy with the nominations.

British comic Ricky Gervais will return to host the Globes award ceremony, which will air live January 16 on NBC.

Gervais said he will push the envelope even more than he did when he hosted the last show and took jabs at NBC and the Foreign Press Association.

"I don't think I was too bad," Gervais told reporters last week about his first turn hosting. "I don't think I went far enough."
