Just pinch Masi Oka, the nerd turned actor on HEROES. Now he has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as Hiro Nakamura, super powered otaku. While Oka was the sole acting nom for the show, HEROES was nominated for Best Drama, as were LOST and 24. The Globe nomination were otherwise fairly nerd-free, although Guillermo del Toro’s highly-awaited (by us anyway) Pan’s Labyrinth, got a nod for Best Foriegn Language Film. Ben Affleck got a Best Supporting nod for playing Superman George Reeves in HOLLYWOODLAND. The noms for best Animated Film included Cars, Happy Feet and Monster House.
