Golden Globe Awards

The list of nominations for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the yearly precursor to the Academy Awards, have just been announced - you can find all film nominees below. The infamous Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees this morning from The Beverly Hilton. As expected, their choices this year are more mainstream but they're solid picks overall, however I won't speak for the winners yet. The King's Speech leads with 7 noms, barely over The Social Network's 6 noms. Obviously they really liked The Tourist and Alice in Wonderland, but I'm glad to see Inception earning 4 noms, too. Check out the full list!

    Breaking Bad being left off of the best drama officially makes that award a joke.
  • yan
    Yay! Go inception! Glad to see Christopher Nolan finally get his due.
  • kevin
    How is The Tourist considered a Comedy/Musical?
  • Andy
    Why on earth isn't Clint Mansell in the run for Best Original Score for Black Swan? It's unbelievable.
  • CoenLover
    Why isnt True Grit in the Run for drama, supporting actress .... ?
  • IKE
    I forsee Disney/Pixar giving up the animated category for atleast one year.
  • Capo
    Well i guess True Grit can go **** titself then. How does that movie get no nominations while The Tourist gets 2? Also why no love for Duvall for Get Low or Bardem for Biutiful.
  • Joey
    gotta love the golden globes for being one mess of an awards show
  • Moon
    From the reviews I've read True Grit is suppossed to be fantastic. I would rather have seen that nominated than The Fighter. The Comedy Musical section has one good movie nominated. Glad to see the nomination for Jeremy Renner.
  • James
    I'm glad both of the ladies from "The Kids Are All Right" were nominated, but where is the love for Mark Ruffalo?
  • Bee
    the comedy or musical category makes no sense. i wouldn't even consider Alice in Wonderland a comedy or musical. that category should simply be called "Miscellaneous Mainstream"
  • deltavoyage
    @4 Andy - From what I've heard, Black Swan probably won't be eligible for awards consideration for its soundtrack since it uses so much of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake. It sucks because the score is awesome, but it's probably not getting any nominations. Big surprise to see True Grit left off of the list entirely. But I'm glad to see Black Swan pull some big nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. About time Darren Aronofsky gets some love, and Black Swan was pretty fantastic.

    All other best picture and director Golden Glove and Academy Award nominations this year are just ballot fillers, especially when it comes to the Academy Awards. Like it or not, this year's Best Picture and Director Awards belongs to Christopher Nolan and Inception. This is the year of the blockbuster and Chris Nolan ; no little indie is even going to get a look in.
  • Hattori Hanzo
    Did I just say Golden 'Glove'? Just goes to show how little I care about those :)
  • I am sorry but Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World is more of a comedy than the Tourist.
  • B3RRY
    Here's My wish-list for the Golden Globe Nominations Drama - Inception Comedy - The Kids Are All Right Director - Christopher Nolan Drama Actor - Mark Wahlberg Drama Actress - Natalie Portman Comedy Actress - Anne Hathaway Comedy Actor - Jake Gyllenhaal Supporting Actress - Helena Bonham Carter Supporting Actor - Christian Bale Foreign - Biutiful Screenplay- Christopher Nolan Score- Hans Zimmer Animated- Toy Story 3 Song - "Bound to You" by Christina Aguilera - Burlesque
  • Where is ( Legend Of The Guardians ) in the Animated Film nominees ??? ... However I am sure we will see it in the Oscar Nominations ! 😉 ... The same happens with ( Surf's Up ) in 2008 ! ...
  • Andy #1
    @deltavoyage - I thought that it must have been something like that. I did read somewhere that Mansell will adapting Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake so I guess it looks like there will be no joy for him. But what he should have won it earlier was for The Fountain. Yes. Good to see Aranofsky get some recognition for once. I think he is the most under-appreciated director ever. Requiem for a dream, The Fountain and The Wrestler were masterpieces. I haven't seen Black Swan yet but As you say and if all that I've been hearing is true, Black Swan might just be Aranofsky's Schindler's List.
  • NafiisW
    Honestly I just want to See Hans Zimmer win for Best Score, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis for Black Swan, and of course Chris Nolan should win all his categories.
  • Steve
    Best Comedy category is a joke. Here are some films that deserve to be in it. Cyrus The Other Guys Scott Pilgrim vs. The World I'd even take Jackass or Pirahna 3D over the tourist and burlesque. No True Grit noms also makes me very upset
  • Jeff Spicoli
    douglas will win sympathy votes for his testicular cancer i recon
  • J
    Seriously. Is anyone upset about the Never Let Me Go snub(s)?
  • dawko
    I am little concerned....why isnt there Leonardo Dicaprio for Inception ??? He was spectacular !!!
  • John I.G.
    So every year these awards ceremonies come around, and it's always a handful of favorite hollywood movies that get pushed, it seems kinda dumb to me. Yes, a great movie, will be great in multiple aspects, but how about instead of rewarding the same movie 10 times, you bring in some other movies, which may not be as good, but could be better in that category. Anyways, rant, rant, rant. Oh P.S. @24 Dicaprio really wasn't that good in Inception, the movie was good, but he didn't seem very convincing for some reason in the role.
  • Film Fan
    The Golden Globes have always been a joke, but many of the nominations this year are outrageous to say the least. "The Tourist" getting ANY recognition, regardless of it's category (comedy, please). Depp for Best Actor in "Alice in Wonderland". He was in it for about 20 minutes. And the worst part of the movie IMO. Like a few people have said, how in the hell did "True Grit" get zero nominations!? And where the fuck is Noomi Rapace for "The Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo" and it's sequels?? Not to mention, where is it's nomination for Best Foreign Language Film!? God I hate the Golden Globes. They truly suck.
  • jebstuart
    this is complete bullshit. im not even going to watch this
  • IceFilm
    Ha! Okay! Really funny! Seriously, where are the real nominations?
  • Qwerty
    About time jacki weaver gets some recognition!!! Animal kingdom should be nominated for best picture drama. Best movie I've seen in the last 20 years by a long long way
  • guy
    i came very close to walking out of the theater because 'alice in wonderland' was so stupid. stupid, stupid, stupid.. and that is winning an award? why? because it made alot of money??.. stupid.
  • rowdy
    i thought ghost writer was the best directed film all year
  • Jane
    Colin Firth is amazing. Kings Speech is the best picture! 127 Hours should have been nominated!
