2012 Presidential Election

Nominations announced for the 2007 Golden Globe Awards

Nominations have been handed out for the “64th Annual Golden Globes” to be awarded January 15th live on NBC.

The theme for this year’s Golden Globe nominations seems to be double nods, with Clint Eastwood drawing dual director nods for “Flags of Our Fathers” and “Letters From Iwo Jima” as well as Leonardo DiCaprio pulling off the rare feat of getting nominations for two starring roles in “The Departed” and “Blood Diamond”.

News Corp. was also a big winner in the nominations, as the corporation picked up nods from three of its units for a total of four out of five nominees in the comedy field (2oth Century Fox’s “Borat” and “The Devil Wears Prada” and Fox Searchlight’s “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Thank You for Smoking”). The other movie in the field was Paramount/Dreamworks “Dreamgirls”.

Joining “The Departed” in the Best Drama field were the movies “Babel” (which had the most nominations at seven overall, followed by six for “The Departed” and five for “Dreamgirls”), “Bobby”, “Little Children” and “The Queen”.

Eastwood’s nominations set up a sort of rematch with Scorsese, up for “The Departed,” after Eastwood took the prize two years ago.
Leonardo DiCaprio was joined in the Best Actor field by nominations for Peter O’Toole for his work in “Venus”, Will Smith for “The Pursuit of Happyness” and Forest Whitaker for “The Last King of Scotland”.

This year looks to pit, again, Martin Scorcese against Clint Eastwood as Scorcese’s “The Departed” will go up against Eastwood’s two films. Others nominated for Best Director were Stephen Frears for “The Queen” and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for “Babel”.

Looking towards the TV side, the Best Drama field was filled with two new series: NBC’s “Heroes” and HBO’s “Big Love” (HBO led the pack for another year with 13 nominations). Others nominated were Fox’s “24” and ABC’s “Grey’s Anatom” and “Lost”.

In the Best Musical/Comedy the nominees were led by another newcomer; ABC’s “Ugly Betty”. Others nominated were ABC’s “Desperate Housewives”, HBO’s “Entourage”, NBC’s “The Office” and Showtime’s “Weeds”.
