Golden Globes Nominations are in!

The Golden Globe nominations were announced today, and there were some surprises (Jolie) and some obvious choices (Inception, The Social Network). I’ll post them here (I have underlined who I think will/should win).

BEST PICTURE, DRAMA

Black Swan
The Fighter
Inception
The King’s Speech
The Social Network

I know it’s a controversial choice but I’m saying this will happen. The Social Network was a great film, but I don’t see it being that big of an award hog. Inception might self destruct due to it’s popularity. Black Swan is too ‘peculiar’ to win. The King’s Speech is the other competitor in this group. But I’m saying it here, The Fighter will either get this or the Academy Award (you can come back and congratulate me on predicting it in January :-)).

BEST PICTURE, MUSICAL OR COMEDY

Alice in Wonderland
Burlesque
The Kids Are All Right
Red
The Tourist

I thought this is kind of a weak category this year. None of these really stand out to me as films you would remember, or even watch again. I thought Alice In Wonderland was a dissapointment, caught up in 3D and The Kids Are Allright the only one that would get nominated in the Oscars. Seriously, Burlesque?

BEST DIRECTOR

Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan
David Fincher, The Social Network
Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech
Christopher Nolan, Inception
David O. Russell, The Fighter

This is a tough one, all very much expected nominations, andin my view all great directors (Hooper being the one I’m not too sure about, haven’t seen enough from him to judge really) but as I don’t think The Social Network will get best picture, I’m thinking their going to go with Fincher a very worthy winner in my eyes. Inception was more the content, the story than a directing masterpiece, eventhough Nolan is brilliant.

BEST ACTOR, DRAMA

Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King’s Speech
James Franco, 127 Hours
Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine
Mark Wahlberg, The Fighter

Ah my favourite category. I think this is absolutely a tight one, and any of them (except for Wahlberg maybe) could have the chance to win. I predict this will go to Franco, and the Oscar to Firth. (I hope Gosling gets another Academy nod, but I don’t think his time is yet, the youngster he is) + BTW where is DiCaprio? Strange .. he usually gets a nomination whatever he does really. But it’s a tough category, there’s so many great male leads out there.

BEST ACTRESS, DRAMA

Halle Berry, Frankie and Alice
Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

I think this might go any which way, I still haven’t seen Black Swan, but the hype around it says Portman could win. Probably Lawrence though.

BEST ACTOR, COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland
Johnny Depp, The Tourist
Paul Giamatti, Barney’s Version
Jake Gyllenhaal, Love and Other Drugs
Kevin Spacey, Casino Jack

BEST ACTRESS, COMEDY OR MUSICAL

Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
Anne Hathaway, Love and Other Drugs
Angelina Jolie, The Tourist
Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right
Emma Stone, Easy A

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

Christian Bale, The Fighter
Michael Douglas, Wall Street 2
Andrew Garfield, The Social Network
Jeremy Renner, The Town
Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech

Great nominees again, but I’m certain this is going to go to Bale. Role of his life.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Amy Adams, The Fighter
Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech
Mila Kunis, Black Swan
Melissa Leo, The Fighter
Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom

I have to admit, I have no idea on this. Could go any way to be fair.

BEST SCREENPLAY

Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, 127 Hours
Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg, The Kids Are All Right
Christopher Nolan, Inception
David Seidler, The King’s Speech
Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE

Despicable Me
How To Train Your Dragon
The Illusionist
Tangled
Toy Story 3

I guess Toy Story’s campaign to be nominated for Best Film didn’t happen then.. Maybe Oscars? How To Train Your Dragon a very close second.

BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

Biutiful
The Concert
The Edge
I Am Love
In A Better World

Iñarritu totally deserves this, and Bardem is a dream.

THE GOLDEN GLOBES handed out January 16th 2011!

    • Taitaa olla kaikki milleniumsarjan leffat julkaisuvuodella 2009! Mutta tosiaan BARDEM puuttuu : – O En tajua, tosin tuo kategoria on tosi tiukka. Varmaan vei Wahlberg hänen paikkansa.

  1. Ahh, good stuff! I bet Sorkin will win for best screenplay, The Social Network’s finest asset (with Jesse, that is).
    Best supporting could go for Melissa Leo: some thought she got snabbed an Oscar when Kate Winslet won for that awful Reader..
    I just saw Black Swan today and I must say this: if Bale does a role of his life in The Fighter according to you, Portman does the same in Aronofsky’s. What a gorgeous film, what an intense performance, and hey, she not only looses weights but dances as well ^_~ (too bad, Bale, you can’t beat that now can you?).

    • Yeah Social Network has been getting a lot of nod from critics now! Will be interesting, I just don’t think it fits the traditional Oscar-film. (They are changing it up a bit now though, with the 10 nominations and more of a youthful approach IMO)

      ARGH I need to see Black Swan NOW

  2. Oon NIIN kiitollinen kommentistas, en oo tainnu aiemmin törmätä sun blogiin ja mitä oonkaan missannut… looking good! The Fighter ja Black Swan pitäs kyllä katsastaa pikimmiten.

    • Oi kiitos! Joo en malta odottaa Black Swania phuuh täällä ei lähiteatterissa se pyöri vieläkään huoh, Tammikuussa tänne Britteihin ja vasta Helmikuussa Suomeen! Ei voisi vähempää ärsyttää tämä Euroopan perässä laahaaminen.
