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.
