67th Golden Globe Nominations: Movies

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominations for the 67th Annual Golden Globes. On the movies front, Up in the Air leads the field with six nominations, followed by Nine with five nominations, while Avatar and Inglourious Basterds received four nominations a piece.

Some key take-aways:

  • Avatar is up for the key categories of Best Picture-Drama and Best Director (James Cameron). The other two nominations come in the music category; Best Original Score (James Horner) and Best Original Song (“I See You”, perfomed by Leona Lewis).
  • Avatar is joined in the Best Picture-Drama category by The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious and Up in the Air.
  • Cameron is joined in the Best Director category by Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), Clint Eastwood (Invictus), Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds). Inglorious Basterds also received nominations for Best Supporting Actor (for in my opinion, the brilliant performance of Christoph Waltz) and Best Screenplay.

More highlights after the jump.

  • The sleeper sci-fi hit District 9 was only recognized in one category, but it’s a well-placed nomination for Best Screenplay. It’ll go up against The Hurt Locker, It’s Complicated and Up in the Air — along with Inglorious Basterds as previously mentioned — in the category.
  • The Best Picture-Comedy or Musical category features the sole nomination for Todd Phillip’s The Hangover, which is joined by (500) Days of Summer, It’s Complicated, Julie & Julia and Nine.
  • On the acting front, Meryl Streep adds two nominations to her resume for Best Actress-Comedy or Musical for her work in It’s Complicated and Julie & Julie. She’s joined by Sandra Bullock (The Proposal), Marion Cotillard (Nine) and Julia Roberts (Duplicty) in the category. Bullock also received two nominations, as she was also nominated for Best Actress-Drama for her role in The Blind Side. She’s joined in the category by Emily Blunt (The Young Victoria), Helen Mirren (The Last Station), Carey Mulligan (An Education) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious).
  • For the men, George Clooney was recognized for his highly regarded performance in Up in the Air. He’s up against Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart), Colin Firth (A Single Man), Morgan Freeman (Invictus) and Tobey Maguire (Brothers). Best Actor-Comedy or Musical nominations include Matt Damon (The Informant), Daniel Day Lewis (Nine), Robert Downey, Jr. (Sherlock Holmes), Joseph Gordon-Levitt ((500) Days of Summer) and Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man). Matt Damon also received a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Invictus. He’s joined by Woody Harrelson (The Messenger), Christopher Plummer (The Last Station), Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones) and the aforementioned Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds).
