HBO's  "Game Change" took the lead on the TV front Thursday morning as the nominees for the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced. The political drama was followed closely by Showtime's "Homeland."

"Game Change," which was based on the 2008 presidential campaign (particularly former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's road to becoming a vice presidential nominee), racked up five nominations, including nods for actors Ed Harris and Julianne Moore.

"Homeland," which will wrap its second season Sunday, scored four nominations--maintaining its lock in the major drama categories, with Mandy Patinkin landing a supporting actor in a drama nod after not making a showing last year.

The series will be joined in the drama category by "Breaking Bad," "Boardwalk Empire," "Downton Abbey" and the critically targeted "The Newsroom."

Meanwhile, "Modern Family's" position in the comedy or musical category remains untouched, though newcomers join it in the race: HBO's "Girls" made its debut showing--while NBC's "Smash" took up the musical slot formerly occupied by Fox's "Glee." And CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" makes a return to the category after not making the cut last year.

The Golden Globe Awards, which are hosted by funnywomen Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will be handed out on Sunday, Jan. 13, and broadcast live coast-to-coast on NBC.
