NEW YORK (AP) — HBO and Showtime are dominating the list of television nominees for Golden Globe awards.

HBO programs and actors were responsible for 15 nominations, with two-thirds of them in the movie or miniseries category. Three HBO productions — "The Normal Heart," ''Olive Kitteridge" and "True Detective" — were among the five nominees for best miniseries or TV movie. The others were "Fargo" on FX, and "The Missing," on Starz.

Eight of Showtime's nine nominations were for programs or actors in series. But there were no nominations for Showtime's "Masters of Sex," even though lead actress Lizzy Caplan was nominated for an Emmy this year.

"Fargo" was the individual program with the most nominations, earning five.

ABC's groundbreaking "Modern Family," on a five-year Emmy Award winning streak for best comedy, was another Golden Globe shutout victim.

FX received eight nominations and Netflix seven — both more than the three largest commercial broadcasters -- ABC, CBS and NBC -- received combined.
