NBC UNIVERSAL TELEVISION STUDIO NOTCHES SEVEN GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS, INCLUDING NODS FOR POPULAR 'HEROES' AS BEST TELEVISION DRAMA AND 'THE OFFICE' AS BEST TELEVISION SERIES - COMEDY OR MUSICAL

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. Carell won the award for his performance in the role and category last year. He was joined in the same category by Oscar, Emmy and Tony Award nominee Alec Baldwin for his work on NBC's new comedy "30 Rock" (Thursdays, 9:30-10 p.m. ET) and by Tony Shalhoub of USA's "Monk" (Fridays, 9-10 p.m. ET) (also a previous Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy winner for "Monk").

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. "It's wonderful to see such recognition paid both to our new and returning shows that have proven to be both critical and commercial hits as well."

The studio also recently earned 10 nominations from the Writers Guild Awards, three more nominations from the Producers Guild, and had four of its series ("Battlestar Galactica," "Friday Night Lights," "Heroes" and "The Office") named by the American Film Institute as "AFI TV Programs of the Year."

"The Office," from Reveille and NBC Universal Television Studio, was also the 2006 Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Comedy Series. The program is a documentary-style look into the humorous and sometimes poignant foolishness that plagues the world of 9-to-5 in the half-hour comedy "The Office," based on the award-winning BBC hit.

A fly-on-the-wall "docu-reality" parody about modern American office life, "The Office" delves into the lives of the workers at Dunder Mifflin paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
