New Girl co-stars Zooey Deschanel and Max Greenfield have been nominated in the Best Comedy Actress and Best Supporting Actor categories at the Golden Globes respectively, seeing the American comedy show gain its second awards nod in this season so far – although it did not earn a Best Comedy nomination.

In the show, Deschanel plays a young woman called Jess who lives with three men. Greenfield plays one of her roommates, Schmidt, and has already commented on his nomination to The L.A. Times, saying: “It’s great. I get to play an idiot for a living and get recognized for it. It’s like going to a playground every day.”

The winners of the 70th Golden Globe Awards will be announced during a live broadcast, co-hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, on the 13th of January 2013.
