Golden Globes Nominations: Snubs and Snickers
Posted 12.14.10 by reelz
Nominations for the 68th Annual Golden Globes were announced this morning, with The King's Speech getting the most nods (7), followed by The Social Network (6) and The Fighter (6). See the complete list of movie nominations here.
As always, there were snubs — Not a single True Grit nom? No Danny Boyle (127 Hours) in the Best Director category? There were the surprises — Halle Berry's Best Actress nom for a performance most moviegoers have never heard of? The critically panned Burlesque for top comedy or musical? But then there were the surprises that also prompted audible scoffs.
When Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie were announced as contenders for best actor and best actress in a motion picture musical or comedy for The Tourist snorts of disbelief crackled over the airwaves.
Given that last week Vulture was rounding up the craziest review descriptions of Jolie's The Tourist performance, we have to wonder if the nominations were submitted before critic screenings.
