The History Channel's three part mini-series, “Hatfields & McCoys,” has received two Golden Globe award nominations.

Kevin Costner, who played Devil Anse Hatfield, has been nominated for Best Actor in a made for television movie or mini-series.  

The six hour production, co-produced by Milton native and Marshall University graduate,  Darrell Fetty, has also been nominated as best made for television movie or mini series.  

Other nominees include: HBO’s “Game Change;” HBO’s “The Girl;” BBC America’s “The Hour;” and USA Network’s, “Political Animals.”

Nominated with Costner for Best Actor are Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock/Masterpiece); Woody Harrelson (“Game Change”); Toby Jones (“The Girl”); and Clive Owen (“Heminway & Gellhorn”).

The History Channel will rerun “Hatfields & McCoys” on Christmas Day.

Fetty and the filmmakers worked tediously to avoid Appalachian stereotypes when depicting the feud. Those avoided stereotypes have set off a furor as MTV plans to debut it’s set in West Virginia reality series, “Buckwild,” of  which WV Senator Joe Manchin demanded cancellation.

Nominated for best Comedy or Musical, “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Les Miserables,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” an “Silver Linings Playbook.”
