I have been waiting for this to happen for a while. Finally there is an Outlander ad in The Hollywood Reporter. Since Outlander started I have been skimming through the issues, looking for any sort of Outlander mention. This week, a special issue called “Special: Awards Watch 2014 (November 2014 Awards)” came with the normal issue. Inside is the first ad for promoting Outlander for the Golden Globe nominations. Starz is pushing for “Best Drama Series,” “Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Series” for Caitriona Balfe, “Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama Series” for Sam Heughan, and “Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series, or Motion Picture Made for Television” for Tobias Menzies.
I realize that this is not the first push by Starz to garner a nomination, but it is the first one I have seen in print.
FYI: Ballots from the HFPA members are due back December 8. Nominations are announced December 11.
