HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” created by and starring Larry David, got a big promotional boost with nods for best comedy series and best actor when nominations were announced for the 60th annual Golden Globe awards.
Tony Shalhoub also received a best actor nomination in the comedy category for USA Network’s “Monk.”
