But what got Hollywood buzzing was the complete shutout of a perceived Oscar front-runner — Paramount’s “True Grit,” directed by and — and the boost voters gave to “The Fighter,” a gritty boxing drama that took more than four years to make and that received six nominations. “I’m extremely superstitious, so hopefully this is good news for the film,” said Todd Lieberman, a co-owner of Mandeville Films, a production company that eventually joined with Relativity Media to make “The Fighter” after Paramount balked at the cost but eventually agreed to distribute it. “The Social Network,” ’s tale of ambition in the Internet age, also received six nominations. Other front-runners include “Black Swan,” ’s melodrama about a deranged ballerina, and ’s dream-invader blockbuster “Inception,” which had strong support from voters, with four nominations each.
Long live the nerd … The Social Network and The King's Speech A couple of weeks back, I blogged a personal awards-style "nominations" list of the best of the year in various categories and invited a response, vaguely thinking it might be possible to boil down some results. That's probably not workable given the variety of responses from commenters who understandably didn't want to be bound by my suggestions.
That's it. Play with it...nice and slow. Everyone knows that the Golden Globes are a joke , so why not have some joke quotes to go with them?
Walt Disney Pictures Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland.” In the post-Golden Globe nominations hangover , the main reaction from awards-season watchers was incredulity at the voters’ grasp of movie genres. “I haven’t seen ‘The Tourist,’ but the fact that the Golden Globes think it is a comedy is funnier than anything that happens in it,” the comedian Doug Benson tweeted. Added Keith Calder , a film producer in Los Angeles, “The Golden Globes just jumped the shark, and then nominated the shark for best supporting actor in a musical or comedy.”
The Golden Globe Awards gave a nice howdy-do to three freshmen TV series and planted a big ol' wet kiss on Fox's sophomore series "Glee" as it announced nominations Tuesday for its 68th annual trophy show. Fox's high school musical - last year's Golden Globe winner for best comedy or musical series - copped five Globe noms this year. That's the most of any TV program, and No. 4 in the entire Globe nominations pool, behind only three feature films: "The King's Speech," which logged seven nominations, and "The Fighter" and "The Social Network," with six apiece. The Golden Globe Awards, which will be broadcast live on both coasts Jan. 16 on NBC at 8 p.m. EST, is one of few televised trophy shows that showers love over both film and TV programming simultaneously.
