Hollywood's best were honored Sunday night at the Golden Globe Awards. A Western Wash. man was up for "Best Screenplay" for his flim "Nebraska."

Bob Nelson wrote and acted for the KING 5 comedy show "Almost Live" for 10 years. He said writing sketch comedy was the perfect training for writing a movie and the idea for "Nebraska" actually came to him during his time on "Almost Live."

"Nebraska" stars Bruce Dern, who's up for a Golden Globe for "Best Actor." The movie was nominated for five Golden Globes and is getting a lot of buzz as an Oscar contender.

The Golden Globe Awards start at 5 p.m. Sunday on KING 5. They are preceded by a Red Carpet Show that airs at 4 p.m., hosted by the Today Show's Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer.
