Desperate Housewives cleaned up at Monday morning's announcement of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globe nominations, grabbing five nods, the most for any TV show, including best musical or comedy; best actress nominations for three of the four main characters (Eve Longoria was not nominated); and a best supporting actress for a fifth.

All of Housewives' nods came in the "musical or comedy," rather than drama, category, despite such storylines as a hit-and-run, contract killing (ultimately called off) and the bludgeoning death two weeks ago of a main character. That is in contrast to  a show like Boston Legal, arguably a similar mix of drama and comedy, which was nominated (best actor and supporting actor) in the drama category, which shows how tough it is to categorize the "dramedy" format.

Jamie Foxx was a double threat, nominated for best actor in a a TV movie, Redemption.
as well as a musical or comedy film (Ray).
Following is the association's listing of  the TV nominations for the awards, which will be handed out Jan. 16.
