Another day, another list of nominations annnounced. Today it’s the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Golden Globes, and pushing its reign further towards Oscar success is Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty“, which picked up nominations including Best Picture, Best Director for Bigelow and Best Screenplay for Mark Boal. Quentin Tarantino‘s “Django Unchained” is bouncing back from being left out of yesterday’s SAG nominations with five nominations including two in Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio.
“Zero Dark Thirty” star Jessica Chastain has been nominated in the Best Actress in a Drama category but making for a change, Chastain won’t be competing against her currently expected Oscar competitior Jennifer Lawrence, as Lawrence has been nominated in the Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy category. Chastian will come up against Marion Cotillard for her brilliant turn in “Rust and Bone” and Naomi Watts in “The Impossible”.
Lawrence’s “Silver Linings Playbook” co-star Bradley Cooper also gets some love from the HFPA with a nom in the Best Actor in a Musical/Comedy category, alongside Hugh Jackman for “Les Miserables” and Jack Black in the critically acclaimed but little seen “Bernie“.
There were several notable films and performances left out though, including “Beasts of the Southern Wild” nor the Globes-friendly “Magic Mike” and “Pitch Perfect“. The cast of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower had begun to garner small wins with critic’s groups, and the Golden Globes seemed like a good place for their awards hopes to expand but there was no room for Ezra Miller nor Emma Watson.
Click below for a full list of nominations. The Golden Globes ceremony will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and will air Sunday, January 13 on NBC.

More twists and turns in this exciting awards season this morning as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominees for the Golden Globe Awards. This season’s frontrunner, “The Artist”, continues to dominate, leading with five nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Supporting Actress for Berenice Bejo. Also still full speed ahead is “The Help”, which landed four nominations. The big surprise and a major boost goes to “The Ides of March”, which garnered three nominations, Best Picture and Best Actor for Ryan Gosling (who is also nominated in the Musical or Comedy category for “Crazy Stupid Love”). One of our favorites of the year, “50/50″, also got some play, with surprise nomination for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy and a Best Actor for Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
After being snubbed by the SAG Awards yesterday, Rooney Mara (Best Actress for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), Michael Fassbender (Best Actor for “Shame”) and Shailene Woodley (Best Supporting Actress for “The Descendants”) all showed up here as well. But of course, to make room for them, others must be “snubbed”, and this time around, Melissa McCarthy was the one left out of the Best Supporting Actress noms, which also included Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer for “The Help.”
Full list of nominations are below.
