Television: Miniseries Actor

2008 Golden Globes nominees

Adam Beach, “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
Ernest Borgnine, “A Grandpa for Christmas”
Jim Broadbent, “Longford”
Jason Isaacs, “The State Within”
James Nesbitt, “Jekyll”

Talk about a long absence. Ernest Borgnine is back on the Golden Globes list for the first time after winning for the 1955 pic “Marty.” The 90-year-old actor is keeping a busy schedule with a slew of projects on tap in 2008, and the HFPA may want to honor Borgnine’s longevity with a win for Hallmark Channel’s “A Grandpa for Christmas.” The cancellation of the ceremony deprives Borgnine a well-earned standing ovation if he wins the category.

Emmy nominee Jim Broadbent was a revelation in HBO’s “Longford,” and his turn as the politician who comforts a woman accused of murdering several children was extremely well received. Broadbent, who’s also an Oscar winner, is highly admired by his peers and those in the press.

Adam Beach received notices for “Flags of Our Fathers” in 2006, but here he’s nominated for the HBO telepic “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.” Keeping his profile active, he’s also currently starring in “Law & Order: SVU.”
