The Golden Globes by the numbers

How do this year's nominees add up?

3 = the record for the most noms for a performer in a single year, bequeathed to Jamie Foxx in 2005 (for best actor in a comedy/musical for “Ray,” supporting actor for “Collateral” and actor, TV movie/mini “Redemption.) Felicity Huffman and Donald Sutherland are each up for two acting noms this year.

4 = Lifetime Globe wins for Sarah Jessica Parker — all for HBO’s “Sex and the City.” Tapped for “The Family Stone,” she’s up for trophy No. 5 this year. (Jack Nicholson has six lifetime wins in Globe acting categories, the most by a performer.)

5 = the most Globes ever won by a film… a distinction shared by five pics: “Doctor Zhivago” (1966), “Love Story” (1971) . “The Godfather” (1973), “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1976), “A Star Is Born” (1977). (“Brokeback Mountain” is up for seven awards this year.)

7 = the cumulative total of TV seasons under the belts of this year’s drama series noms, a field that consists of three freshman series (“Commander in Chief,” “Prison Break” and “Rome”) and two sophomores (“Grey’s Anatomy” and “Lost”). The comedy category also has three freshman and two sophomore shows, with HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” the only seasoned vet.

16.9 million = the number of Globes TV viewers in the U.S. last year, the lowest total since the kudocast moved to NBC primetime in 1996. Suspecting that competish from ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” was largely to blame for that poor ratings perf, the Globes are moving to Monday night this year.

26.8 million = the record high number of viewers the kudocast kicked up in 2004, when it moved away from NFL playoff competition.
