Dec. 12, 2014 -- While the entertainment world is abuzz over the actors, writers, producers, directors, and creative talent behind this year's Golden Globe-nominated films and television shows, Westchester County is proud of the acclaim that productions filmed here continue to attract.
The nominations were announced this week in Beverly Hills by Kate Beckinsale, two-time Golden Globe Award-nominee Peter Krause, Paula Patton, and Golden Globe-winner and five-time nominee Jeremy Piven.
The quality of the productions filming in Westchester is evident in the nine Golden Globe nominations they have received—and in the 29 Emmy nominations received by various series earlier this year. With so many attractive locations and a film-friendly climate, Westchester County offers tremendous assets to the film industry, including a diverse array of backdrops, and a welcoming environment for production staff and crews. Many of the nominated television shows have returned to Westchester to film multiple episodes—and in some cases, multiple seasons.
And the 2015 Golden Globe nominees from shows filmed in Westchester are:
Best Performance by an actor in a television series – Drama
Clive Owen, "The Knick"
