67th Annual Golden Globe Award Nominations

glee-nbc

Dan: December is my favorite month of the year, and not just because of the Holidays and the idea of getting some well needed time away from work. It’s the ramp up for awards season!

Patrick: The nominees were announced by John Krasinski, Diane Kruger and Justin Timberlake from LA this morning for this year’s Golden Globes, airing January 17th from Beverly Hills at the Beverly Hilton. We’ve compiled the list of nominees for both the Television category and Movie categories for the 67ths Annual Award show below. It’s great to see Glee, and several of it’s actors making their debut on the list this year – well deserved! I certainly hope Jane Lynch takes it away for best supporting actress in a comedy/musical. She is insanely funny. The movie nominees are what you’d expect, although one surprise is Invictus, which just came out last week. The surprise is that it wasn’t nominated for Best Picture, when it was nominated for Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actor. I’m always baffled when that happens. I’ve heard great things about the film, and former cast member Jamie says that Matt Damon’s South African accent in the movie was bang on. The list made me realize how many movies I have yet to catch up on – something to look forward to!

Dan: There’s no surprise that major Hollywood blockbusters are leading the pack with the most nominations; Up in the Air starring George Clooney is the front-runner with six nominations, followed closely by Nine with five nods (confusing right) and James Cameron’s Avatar with four. Above all the Hollywood hype I was stoked to see both actresses from Precious, Gabourey Sidibe and Mo’nique be nominated for best actress and supporting actress in a motion picture – drama, respectively.

Instead of us ruining all the mystery and excitement, check out the full list of nominees here…

    • I just saw Up In The Air this weekend and it’s GREAT. Clooney pretty much plays Clooney, but Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga are fabulous.

    • Robyn

      Nothing wrong with Clooney playing Clooney… I’ll take Clooney smiling, Clive smoking and Denzel walking anyday. They should make that into a movie.

      On the TV side… wow, how to pick between Dexter, Mad Men, and True Blood… impossible.

    • Dan

      Hands down Mad Men.

      Sorry Robyn, but I know my TV. 😉
