Michael C. Hall divorce has him alone among fellow Golden Globe nominees

Golden Globe nominee Michael C. Hall divorce The Michael C. Hall divorce plans announced just ahead of the "Dexter" actor's Golden Globe nomination Tuesday finds him the lone nominee in his category without a long-term partner lined up to walk the red carpet.

"Boardwalk Empire" star Steve Buscemi has been married to Jo Andres since 1987. They have a son, Lucian, born in 1990.

Bryan Cranston of "Breaking Bad" met second wife Robin Dearden when she made an appearance on his 1984-87 show "Airwolf." Daughter Taylor was born in 1993.

Hugh Laurie has been married to Jo Green since 1989, with sons Charlie and Bill born in 1988 and '89 and a daughter, Rebecca, arriving in 1993.

And though his "Mad Men" character is gearing up for a second trip to the altar, Jon Hamm has never been married, though he and actress Jennifer Westfeldt have been together for more than a decade.

"I don't have the marriage chip," Hamm told Parade in July.

Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, his wife of two years, play brother and sister on the Showtime series. He was nominated Tuesday for best television actor in a drama, the category he won in 2010. Reps confirmed their plan to split, saying the two have been "separated for some time."

Hall rallied against cancer last year to take home his trophy; comparatively, divorce should be a breeze.

Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall file for divorce On-screen siblings and real-life husband and wife Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter are calling it quits.

"Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall have filed for divorce," reps for both stars told EW.com.

The actors, who met on the Showtime set, have been married for two years. As a couple, they weathered Hall's cancer diagnosis and treatment. 

At the end of November, Carpenter spoke with the Los Angeles Times about her and Hall's odd navigation of their brother-sister relationship on screen, despite being lovers in real life.

"We were just friends, and it was very easy to be friends," she said. "We were both surprised when this other thing happened. We did a lot of talking about it -- can we kiss, what will that mean, will we damage the credibility of our characters? We were very practical. But in the end, the heart wanted what the heart wanted."
