The CBS drama series THE GOOD WIFE and its star Julianna Margulies are once again in the hunt for Golden Globe awards that will be handed out on Sunday night January 12.

THE GOOD WIFE was nominated for a second time in the Best Television Series-Drama category.

Julianna Margulies received her fifth Golden Globe nomination in the Best Actress in a Television Series-Drama category for her role as Alicia Florrick.  Margulies took one home in 2009 and CBS hopes for the same success this time around.

Josh Charles, who plays the part of Will Gardner, picked up his first Globes nomination for that role in the Best Supporting Actor-Series, Mini-Series or TV Film.

In the midst of its fifth season, THE GOOD WIFE has critics raving about how it refreshed itself with a plot line that blew up the workplace setting at law firm Lockhart-Gardner and pitted former lovers against each other.

The resulting battle between Will Gardner and Alicia Florrick is both personal and professional with enough betrayal and jealousy to satisfy even the most jaded critic, without sending the drama into nighttime soap territory.

Will and Alicia’s titanic battles are not physical. They are intellectual games with both characters using every lawyerly skill in their bag to vanquish the other. Crush the new firm of Florrick-Agos is the crusade on one side, while on the other, it is mere survival.

In past years, THE GOOD WIFE won Golden Globes for its supporting actors and episode guest stars. Included in the group are Archie Punjabi who won for her supporting role as Kalinda, Martha Plimpton for the recurring guest role of lawyer Patti Nyholm as well as actress Carrie Preston for her own recurring guest spot as Elsbeth Tascioni.

Tune in Sunday night at 8 ET/7CT/5PT on NBC for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards show, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.   Image credit: CBS
