Golden Globe Awards

The nominations for the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the precursor to the Academy Awards, have just been announced today. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees this morning live from The Beverly Hilton. Up in the Air leads this year with six individual nominations. This is one of the first years that I nearly 100% agree with all of these nominations (normally I don't even care for them). My favorite films like Avatar and Inglourious Basterds get a lot of love, as do Up in the Air and 500 Days of Summer. There's even a Where the Wild Things nomination in here as well. Check out the full list!

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday, January 17th, 2010 at The Beverly Hilton hosted by Ricky Gervais with a live telecast airing on NBC. Read on for the full list of 2010 nominees.

    Why isn't 'Moon' on the list, best movie of the year!
  • branden
    I never understood why musicals and comedies were paired. How can you vote between The Hangover and Nine? Stupid.
  • JP
    I was even more bitter when Walk the Line counted as a musical -- but this list looks solid!
  • germs
    Can't say I'm too crazy about most of those movies. Where is Sam Rockwell's best actor nod?
  • Colca
    I have very few complaints about the nominations, and i personally always hate it when people make posts like "How come this didn't get nominated", but seriously.... How did 500 Days of Summer NOT get a screenplay nomination??
  • sarah n
    were is moon for best movie and best ORIGINAL SCORE and sam rockwell for best actor and why isn't viggo on the list for best actor for the road. why is nine getting noms it is very bad
  • Corran Horn
    Aside from the snubbing of Viggo Mortensen, I am very pleased with these nominations. Glad to see Jeff Bridges wasn't overlooked for CRAZY HEART and to see DISTRICT 9 get a nomination. Colca: For whatever reason, the Golden Globes use only one screenplay category, as opposed to separate ones for original and adapted. This means they have only 5 total screenplays to pick, and something is bound to be left out. I'm sure when the Writers' Guild announces its nominations, 500 Days of Summer will not be overlooked.
  • Janny
    only one nomination for district 9... booo and i would think sam rockwell deserves at least a nomination for moon
  • janet
    I think Mulligan will take it but I absolutely loved Emily Blunt in Young Victoria. I was hoping Friend would get a nom too but that was more wishful thinking I suppose. Also, I haven't seen Up in the Air yet but I always thought Vera was a lead does it make sense for her to be up against Anna in the supporting category?
  • Nick
    I agree that Sam Rockwell is an underestimated actor in Hollywood, every movie I've seen him in has been awesome.
  • Six Three
    Everything Clint Eastwood touches turns to gold.
  • Ken
    The Hurt Locker for screenplay over A Serious Man? Are you serious? Just another reason why awards are Bs and I don't know why I even care.
  • Stan
    As for that Hangover/Nine race, it seems odd on the same year to bring Animal House and Caberet to the 21st Century. Hopefully The Hangover will win it.
  • Shane
    Where the hell is A SERIOUS MAN? What the fuck, Golden Globes?
  • http://www.examiner.com/x-22337-Ft-Lauderdale-Movie-Examiner Reub
    Very disappointed that A SERIOUS MAN didn't make it. It's better than all the nominees in the Best Film - Musical/Comedy category. THE HANGOVER was funny but Best Film??? NINE is a turkey. Watched it at a screening last week - There's a reason why Rob Marshall wasn't nominated. It'll get a Best Picture Oscar nod solely on the strength of Harvey Weinstein's marketing muscle. I haven't seen the two Meryl Streep films as yet but I doubt they top A SERIOUS MAN. As usual, the Golden Globes nominate films with BIG STARS instead of more deserving smaller work.
  • Arthur
    Where in the hell are Sam Rockwell and Jeremy Renner's nominations? This is garbage.
  • samuel j
    im so glad that inglourious basterds is included
  • twispious
    i enjoyed moon as much as anoyone else did,and sam rockwell was good but c'mon...the dialogue in that film was crappy at best. a sample A: I'm not the clone,you're the clone. B: Me? Why are you not the clone? For a sci-fi flick,it really felt like a severely underwritten stoner flick. and 500 days of summer was nearly chocked to death by its own overbearing quirkiness.
  • TR2009
    "The Hangover" for Best Picture is a joke.
  • travis
    ....this whole list is a joke
  • Mark Schafer
    @20 Your mom is a joke. AVATAR will win best picture. James Cameron was once "King of the World" James Cameron now is "King of the Universe"
  • Aaron
    WTF?? Nine? The same Nine movie that has a 39% on Rotten Tomatoes right now? What a joke. Half of these movies/performances haven't even been released yet; Avatar, Sherlock Holmes(Robert Downey Jr. is nominated), It's Complicated, are you fu**ing kidding me? Where's Adam Sandler's best actor nod for Funny People? Why does the Academy love sucking the Coen's brothers di(ks? A Serious Man sucked, I saw it, and it wasn't funny at all, and it was supposed to be a comedy. This list is exactly why nobody takes the Golden Globes seriously.
  • http://www.examiner.com/x-22337-Ft-Lauderdale-Movie-Examiner Reub
    @ Aaron: I agree with your sentiments on "Nine." Undeserving is an understatement. Most, if not all movies are screened for the Golden Globes voting body as well as the critics by the second week of December before all the groups announce their awards. So, even if "Avatar," "Sherlock Holmes," and "It's Complicated" haven't been released as yet, they have already been screened. I watched "Nine," "Avatar," Sherlock Holmes and "It's Complicated" early last week. They're deserving of their nods. Sandler's movie was generally regarded as a disappointment and as much as I enjoyed his performance, there unfortunately wasn't any buzz behind the role. No comment on "A Serious Man" as I loved that film.
  • Chris
    Will Hollywood stop kissing Meryl Streep's ass. She is not the Alpha and the Omega of acting.
  • Film Fan
    #24, name another actress of her caliber and respect? And whether you like her or not, most if not all of her nominated performances have been worthy and justified.
  • Chris
    Halle Berry Kate Winslet Judi Densh Reese Witherspoon I can go forever. A nomination for a performance as an annoying chef. Cmon now And if you honestly liked the Devil Wears Prada thats a little sad
  • Fayth
    So they have "Where the wild things are" and "Inglorious basterds" but not New Moon? What the heck.
