The King's Speech leads the Golden Globe nominations
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Yesterday we announced the nominations for the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and today we take one step up and announced the nominees for the Golden Globes which will air on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at 5pm PST on NBC. This nomination list doesn’t differ too much from the list yesterday, but there are some obvious differences which are most apparent in the Best Picture categories. The Golden Globes are a little different as they break down films into dramas and musical/comedies, so if you don’t see one of your favorites on one list go ahead and check the others. The other major difference is that both the Academy Awards and the BFCA give ten nominations in the Best Picture category and once again the Golden Globes break it into two categories. The big surprise between the two lists is the lack of 127 HOURS on either of the Best Picture lists. What gives Golden Globe team? THE TOURIST and BURLESQUE over 127 HOURS-shame on you guys.
The films on the Best Picture lists include: BLACK SWAN, THE FIGHTER, INCEPTION, THE KING’S SPEECH, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, BURLESQUE, THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, RED and THE TOURIST. THE KING’S SPEECH leads the nominations with seven this year with runners in the Best Actor (Colin Firth), Best Supporting Actor (Geoffrey Rush), Best Supporting Actress (Helena Bonham Carter) and Best Director (Tom Hooper) categories. If you haven’t put THE KING’S SPEECH on your to see list then hop on it because this film will be sure to get around the same number of nominations for the Academy Awards as well.
