The HBO psychotherapy series "In Treatment" and the movie dramatization of the 2000 election aftermath "Recount" both earned five Golden Globes nominations this morning.

"Recount" will compete for best TV movie or miniseries, with Kevin Spacey, Tom Wilkinson, Laura Dern and Denis Leary nominated for their acting.

Completing the good day for HBO, its miniseries "John Adams" earned four nominations.

Meanwhile, Tina Fey's magical run continued. The show she created and in which she stars, NBC's "30 Rock," earned a nomination for best comedy and Fey received a best actress nod.

Fox's "House" was the only broadcast nominee for best TV drama. Besides "In Treatment," other nominees were HBO's "True Blood," Showtime's "Dexter" and the reigning Emmy winner, AMC's "Mad Men."

Showtime's "Weeds" and "Californication," HBO's "Entourage" and NBC's "The Office" will compete with "30 Rock" for best TV comedy.
