2008 Golden Globes

The nominations for the 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the precursor to the Oscars, have been announced for 2008. This year's selection has some promising choices, including plentiful mentions of No Country for Old Men, Michael Clayton, Juno, Charlie Wilson's War, and even Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. While the Golden Globes aren't exactly what we'll later see at the Oscars, they're a great set of awards that honor those who are sometimes forgotten by the Academy. The Globes will air live on NBC at 8PM (EST) on Sunday, January 13, 2008 from The Beverly Hilton in LA. Without further ado, you can catch the full list of nominees below.

Atonement leads the nominations with the most, 7 in total across a wide variety of categories. Charlie Wilson's War comes in second with 5 nominations. In addition, I'm very glad to see some particulars mentioned like Casey Affleck in Supporting Actor for Assassination of Jesse James and both Amy Adams for Enchanted and Nikki Blonsky for Hairspray. And of course I've got a smile on my face for them including "Walk Hard" the song from Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. That's almost like Sacha Baron Cohen from last year! Sound off! What are your thoughts on these nominations?

  • How could they leave Once out for best original song! This is a sham! Other then that, I pretty much expected everything to be how it is. No really big suprises.
  • I would absolutely agree with you Jeff, especially since I caught Once on DVD last night. After doing a little research, the couple of songs I would have picked were actually released on CD by the duo in 2006. If I remember correctly, the songs have to be written specifically for the movie and therefore take them out of the running for the GG.
  • However, a few songs from Once are in the running for the Best song category at the Oscars (59 songs in total). To me, the rules for the Oscars are much tighter, and they are pretty much the same in the sense that the song has to be written specifically for the movie. Why would they be eligible for the Oscars, but not for the Globes? Sounds kinda fishy to me.

    How did "Without Love" not get nominated for original song? Because it was made for Broadway? An original rendition was made for the movie so wtf?
  • Vangel
