Golden Globe TV nomination breakdown

The Golden Globe nominations were announced today, and here's the way the TV stuff breaks down. There's some good stuff here, and we're really happy about all the "Mad Men" and "Glee" love. But what I really want to know is, what the heck has "Friday Night Lights" done to tick off all the awards people? It must be something very, very bad.

Highwoods named developer of the year

RALEIGH — Highwoods Properties, a Raleigh real estate investment trust, was named 2009 Developer of the Year by the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties, one of the commercial real estate industry's biggest trade groups.

Highwoods, which was founded in 1978 and has grown to become one of the biggest owners and operators of suburban offices in the Southeast, has been praised for its strategy of selling older buildings at the height of the real estate boom, using proceeds to build new offices and pay down debt.

The strategy has positioned the company to thrive as credit constraints dog many of its competitors. Since January 2005, Highwoods has built $633 million of office and industrial properties totaling 4.1 million square feet.

“Highwoods is clearly a leader in both the real estate and general business communities, proven by its ability to outperform no matter what the real estate cycle,” Thomas J. Bisacquino, NAIOP's president, said in a statement.

TV Land Awards show honors MASH & Rickles

TV Land Awards, 8pm, TV Land 

Neil Patrick Harris hosts the 7th annual TV Land Awards show tonight, paying special tribute to Don Rickles, who receives the Legend Award, and the show M*A*S*H, which will receive the Impact Award.

ER is slated to receive the Icon Award, and Sid and Marty Kroft will receive the Vanguard Award. I'm psyched to see Magnum, PI get the Hero Award, but will probably step out for a snack when they give Two and a Half Men the Future Classic Award.

There are lots more honorees, so it's a nice trip down memory lane. For more information, check out the TV Land Awards site. TV Land airs locally on channel 54 on Time Warner Cable.

SAG Awards: 30 Rock sweeps

This is how you do an awards show - no muss, no fuss, in and out in two hours. And that's for TV and  movies. Oscars -- take note.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards show sped along last night at a nice little clip, and it had some cool moments. Here are some of the highlights for the TV awards handed out.

Tina Fey wins Best Comedy Actress. She makes a joke about actors not getting internet residuals and asks her infant daughter Alice to take care of her when she's old and broke.

(Note: Jon Hamm of Mad Men looks GREAT with 2009 hair).

Alec Baldwin wins Best Comedy Actor. He says he'd like to make out with Anthony Hopkins because he looks "so good."
