69th Annual Golden Globes Nominations

Posted December 15, 2011 by Max in Awards

The Artist seems to be unstoppable now. The Hollywood Foreign Press announced their choices for The Golden Globes and The Artist leads all nominees with six nominations, while The Help and The Descendants follow with five.

Shocking people is the continuing absence of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Perhaps the late showings have went against them and the movie has been positioned to die unfortunately.

The Golden Globes Nominations featured the first nomination for Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander from Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. They also snubbed Gary Oldman for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Looks like this isn’t going to be Oldman’s year. Ryan Gosling got some much needed appreciation for his role in Ides of March. I’d argue that he was better in Drive, but seeing that Ides is a George Clooney movie, I suppose that was the reason.

The comedy section looks a lot stronger here than in years past. All five films have been well received, except for My Week with Marilyn, which seems to just hang around because of the performances.

It remains to be seen what effect these selections have on the Oscar race, but the lines are already being drawn.
