BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. » Scott Caan, who plays Danno, the wise-cracking sidekick on the rebooted version of "Hawaii Five-0," received a Golden Globe nomination yesterday for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
Also nominated in the category are Chris Colfer of "Glee," Chris Noth of "The Good Wife," Eric Stonestreet of "Modern Family" and David Strathairn of "Temple Grandin."
Since CBS unveiled its new "Five-0" in September, Caan's interpretation of Detective Danny "Danno" Williams -- originally played by James MacArthur -- has been marked by irreverent humor, a rumpled look and a tough-guy's stance.
The British monarchy tale "The King's Speech" led Golden Globe contenders with seven nominations, including best drama and acting honors for Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush.
Other best-drama nominees were the psychosexual dance thriller "Black Swan," the boxing saga "The Fighter," the sci-fi blockbuster "Inception" and the Facebook chronicle "The Social Network."
Nominees in the Globes' other best-picture category, for musical or comedy, are the Lewis Carroll fantasy "Alice in Wonderland," the song-and-dance extravaganza "Burlesque," the lesbian-family tale "The Kids Are All Right," the action romp "Red" and the romantic thriller "The Tourist."
Bonham Carter, a supporting-actress nominee as Queen Elizabeth II's mother in the 1930s-era "The King's Speech," said the Globe nominations had some medicinal value for her and romantic partner Tim Burton, director of "Alice in Wonderland," which had three nominations. She and their children were nursing colds at their London home, while Burton was suffering from kidney stones.
"The Social Network" and "The Fighter" tied for second with six nominations each. Among nominations for "The Social Network" were Jesse Eisenberg as best dramatic actor, Andrew Garfield as supporting actor and David Fincher as director.
"The Fighter" earned four acting nominations, best actor for Mark Wahlberg and supporting honors for Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Melissa Leo. Its nominations also included a directing slot for David O. Russell.
Wahlberg, also a producer on "The Fighter," stars as Boston-area boxer Micky Ward, who overcame family strife to get a title shot in his mid-30s with help from his half brother (Bale), a former fighter whose life unravels amid crime and drugs.
"Micky Ward was one of my heroes growing up. Doing what he did against all odds, he's just a very special individual," Wahlberg said.
Johnny Depp earned two nominations, as best musical or comedy actor for "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Tourist."
Along with Eisenberg, Firth and Wahlberg, best dramatic actor contenders are James Franco for the survival story "127 Hours" and Ryan Gosling for "Blue Valentine."
Nominees for best dramatic actress are Halle Berry for the multiple-personality drama "Frankie and Alice," Nicole Kidman for the grieving-parent tale "Rabbit Hole," Jennifer Lawrence for the Ozarks crime yarn "Winter's Bone," Natalie Portman for "Black Swan" and Michelle Williams for "Blue Valentine."
Ricky Gervais is returning as host of the Globes ceremony, which will air Jan. 16 on NBC.
