68th Annual Golden Globe Nominations (for 2010 - films only)

Golden Globe nominations were announced yesterday and for awards centric folk this is one of the lists that's a great precursor screening list to get in for possible Oscar nominations. I've come to enjoy the Globes more and more over the years as with having both Drama and Comedy/Musical categories for film, actor & actress it gives us more films to explore and enjoy. The heavy hitter this year is The King's Speech which has 7 nominees and I really enjoyed that one, but next up we have The Fighter and The Social Network both with 6. I'm a little surprized at The Fighter with that many noms, I guess it will be on my to-see list now. I wonder how The Social Network will do, in general people are really loving it but I really didn't connect to it. Add Black Swan & Inception at 4 nominations, again both I didn't connect to so I'm wondering if I'm going to be a bit of a grump this award season. The Kids Are All Right also chimes in with 4 noms, and in the 3 nomination club we have 127 Hours, Alice in Wonderland and the very fun Burlesque.

I did do a fair number of happy dances when reading the nominations including I Am Love (Italy) nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, it's shaping up to be my favourite film of the year. It was also great to see Jacki Weaver nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture in in Animal Kingdom. Score nominees that I'm thrilled to see include A.R. Rahman for 127 Hours, Alexandre Desplat for The King's Speech and Hans Zimmer for Inception. I'm a big fan of all of those guys. And it's freaking awesome that "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" Music & Lryics by Diane Warren from Burlesque was nominated, it's a very powerful song.

Few new-ish titles to me on this list include Blue Valentine which I just saw the trailer for last week and looks compelling and also have to see if it's possible to see Best Foreign Language Film nominations The Edge (Russia) and In a Better World (Denmark), hopefully we'll see those in Toronto at some point. And with Jeremy Renner nominated for The Town as supporting actor, that might just tip me to seeing that one as well.

Nominated Film Lists also available by number of nominations with nominations detailed or film list by number of nominations.
