Golden Globe Awards logo 2010 Golden Globe Nominations Announced

The folks over at Cinematical were good enough to be up early this December morning to update folks in real-time with the 67th Annual Golden Globe nominations. Things are officially gearing up to the Awards season early next year, all leading up to the “big ones” – the Oscars. The Golden Globes are arguably the second-biggest awards out there, and we have this year’s nominations right here.

I’d say for the most part that the nominations are quite predictable. Not that that’s a bad thing – if it’s clear to all what the best movies, performances, scores etc are, then it should result in them getting nominated (that’s the way it SHOULD work, anyway – hey-oh! icon razz 2010 Golden Globe Nominations Announced ).

On the movie nominations: As anyone who’s read a few of my posts here at Screen Rant probably knows, I’m a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino and I’m so pleased his brilliant Inglourious Basterds is getting the recognition it deserves, gaining nominations for Best Motion Picture (Drama), Best Supporting Actor (Drama) for the magnificent performance of Christoph Waltz and both Best Director and Best Screenplay for Tarantino himself.

Other interesting things to note about the movies is that Avatar is getting a fair bit of recognition (could we see the same thing at the Oscars, even resulting in a semi-repeat of Cameron’s success with Titanic?); Jason Reitman is having success after Juno with Up in the Air; and what’s this with the Coen Brothers’ A Serious Man NOT getting nominated in the Best Motion Picture category (it’s in the top 5 of the year for me, easily).

On the TV nominations: As someone who holds Lost up as the greatest TV show on the air (of all time, if I’m being completely honest), I’m sad to see it only get one nomination (Michael Emerson for his brilliant portrayal of Ben Linus). As for the major category, Best Drama Series, I’m torn between Dexter and True Bloodthe finale of Dexter this past weekend makes me lean towards that, but both are fantastic and I’d be happy if either won.

Anyway, enough from me, what are YOUR thoughts on the Golden Globes nominations for this year? Obvious choices? Any surprises in there? What are some of the films and TV shows you would nominate?

The Golden Globes will air on Sunday January 17th, 2010, on NBC.

  1. I’m actually stunned that The Road never got a bigger release than it did..I was hoping Viggo would get his Oscar for this one but the “buzz” is not there it seems..

  2. GK333, nobody wants too see a film about the near future…

    I think its obvious why “The Road” was strictly limited. Same with Moon, and again Hurt Locker.

  3. @ 790

    Three great films from what I have read..I look forward to buying those three films and watching them repeatedly..Have you seen them all? Highly recommend?

  4. Seen them all GK333, “Hurt Locker” and “Moon” will both be dvd purchases for me. The Hurt Locker is one of those engaging films that you can’t look away from. Moon’s plot slowly builds on you as it unravels. Its a powerful sci-fi conspiracy film.

    I’m not sure I’m interested in seeing “The Road” again. Its definitely worth a look if you havnt seen it but there’s not much of a re watch factor. (IMO)
