UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 14, 2006 - The NBC Universal Television Studio scored seven Golden Globe nominations today, including NBC's new hit drama "Heroes" (Mondays, 9-10 p.m. ET) -- which was nominated as Best Television Series-Drama -- while the Emmy Award-winning "The Office" (Thursdays, 8:30-9 p.m. ET) also was nominated as Best Television Series-Comedy or Musical. The announcements were made early today by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

In addition, Hugh Laurie, the title star of the studio's critically acclaimed Fox drama "House" (Tuesdays, 9-10 p.m. ET), was nominated again for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series-Drama. The actor won the award for his performance in the same role and category last year.

Likewise, other studio nominees include Steve Carell of NBC's "The Office" (Thursdays, 8:30-9 p.m. ET), who earned his second Globe nomination in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series-Comedy or Musical.

Newcomer Masi Oka of "Heroes" - television's top freshman series among total viewers and adults 18-49 -- was rewarded with a nomination for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Television Series-Drama.

"On behalf of the NBC Universal Television Studio, we want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and congratulate our studio's deserving nominees," said Angela Bromstad, President, NBC Universal Television Studio.
