The Golden Globe Nominations Are In!

The nominations are in for the 68th Annual Golden Globes, set to air in early 2011. This year brings a mixed bag of both expected nominations as well as some genuine curve balls.

Johnny Depp, for example, scored not one but two Best Actor nominations for two critically panned films, Alice in Wonderland and The Tourist. Likewise, Angelina Jolie scored a nomination for her work in The Tourist. (At least the HFPA got it right in tagging that flick as a “Musical or Comedy.”) In happier surprises, Inception was recognized in four categories including best picture and best director.

But there are some more conventional picks in there as well, with The King’s Speech leading the pack with seven nominations and The Social Network and The Fighter close behind at six. Actor nominations include Natalie Portman for Black Swan, Christian Bale for The Fighter and both Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling for the embattled Blue Valentine.

In television, the big surprise — albeit a happy one — is that The Walking Dead has been nominated for Best TV Series, Drama, after only one season on the air. It certainly takes the sting out of the lack of recognition for Lennie James’ single episode turn as Morgan Jones.

    The only way to judge art is to imagine which actor would be best in one or more of the other nominated roles. So I vote for Mark Wahlberg (Black Swan) and Natalie Portman (The Social Network). Best Picture (Musical or Comedy) has got to be the unrated Glee Movie; whereas Animated Feature definitely should go to Inception. As for Foreign feature, The Social Network wins my vote; with Drama Feature going to Lane 58, which no-bossy has heard of.
