Golden Globe Nominations 2011

Golden globeThe awards season is getting under way kicking off with the Golden Globes on January 16 and the nominations are in.

Leading the pack (justifiably so) is The King’s Speech with seven nods just ahead of The Social Network and The Fighter with six a piece.

Hot on their heels are Black Swan, Inception and The Kids Are All Right with four each, and then it’s 127 Hours, Alice in Wonderland, Burlesque and The Tourist with three each. If those last three strike you as a little strange (everyone just looked at me when I went “What?!” a moment ago), it’s because the Globes insist on separating the comedies from the dramas.

The directors are exactly the same as the respective drama noms – Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan, David Fincher for 127 Hours, Christopher Nolan for Inception, David O Russell for The Fighter and Tom Hooper for The King’s Speech.

In the musical/comedy category, Johnny Depp bizarrely picked up two nominations for Alice In Wonderland and The Tourist (what?!) and Annette Benning and Julianne Moore are up against each other for their roles in The Kids Are All Right. We’re very pleased that Emma Stone also go a nod for her excellent work in Easy A.

Best Actress (Drama) has the expected noms for Jennifer Lawrence for Winter’s Bone and Natalie Portman for Black Swan with Nicole Kidman for Rabbit Hole, Halle Berry for Frankie And Alice and Michelle Williams for the excellent Blue Valentine.

Best Actor (Drama) sees Ryan Gosling pick up a deserved nod for Blue Valentine as well as Jesse Eisenberg for The Social Network. Mark Wahlberg is also up for The Fighter along with James Franco in 127 Hours. But if Colin Firth doesn’t win for The King’s Speech, I’ll eat my critic’s pen.

Strangest of all is that there’s absolutely no mention of the Coen Brothers’ True Grit which was expected to go great guns. The rumour mill is grinding out news that there was some disagreement on whether it was a comedy or drama (like that matters) or that the Coen’s pulled it from the nominations. We’ll have some more news on this when we hear but with Oscar buzz already surrounding True Grit it seems that the Globes’ reputation as an Oscar indicator are now shattered.
