'The King's Speech,' 'The Social Network' and 'The Fighter' dominate 2011 Golden Globe nominations
'True Grit' surprisingly snubbed across the board
BEVERLY HILLS - The film nominees for the 68th Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were both predictable and, as always, surprising in their eclectic choices.
Best picture in a drama featured Oscar contenders "Inception," "The King's Speech," "The Social Network," "Black Swan" and "The Fighter." Best picture - musical or comedy included a strange mix of critically lambasted blockbusters, misfires and one lauded Sundance title as "Alice in Wonderland," "Burlesque," "The Kids Are Alright," "Red" and "The Tourist" were honored.
"The King's Speech" lead all films with seven nods including best picture, actor (Colin Firth), supporting actor (Geoffrey Rush), supporting actress (Helena Bonham Carter), director (Tom Hooper), screenplay and original score.
Among all films, "The Social Network" and "The Fighter" both had six nods, "Inception," "Black Swan" and "The Kids Are All Right" found four nominations, "127 Hours," "The Tourist" and "Alice in Wonderland" landed three nods. In something of a surprise, the Coens' remake of "True Grit" was completely snubbed including potential Academy Award best actor nominee Jeff Bridges and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld.
In other bits, Johnny Depp became a rare double nominee in the best actor - musical or comedy category for both "The Tourist" and "Alice in Wonderland" which is no surprise since he has been nominated nine times previously for a Globe; "Burlesque" landed two original song nominations for "Bound to You" and "You Haven't Seen The Last of Me" which provided honors for both Christina Aguilera and Diane Warren respectively as songwriters.
The 68th Annual Golden Globes will be handed out on Sunday, January 16 at 8 PM EST, 5 PM PST on NBC.
