"Up in the Air," "Nine" Lead Golden Globes Film Nominations 


The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced its nominations this morning for the 67th annual Golden Globes Awards. "Up in the Air" received six nominations including Best Picture, Drama, while "Nine" received five noms including Best Picture, Comedy (huh? "Nine" is definitely NOT a comedy!).

"Avatar," "Inglourious Basterds," "The Hurt Locker," and "Precious" are also Best Picture, Drama contenders, while "(500) Days of Summer," "The Hangover," "It's Complicated," "Julie and Julia" complete the Best Picture, Comedy list.

Sandra Bullock received two acting nominations. One for drama for "The Blind Side" and one for comedy for "The Proposal." She's really having a terrific year!

Meryl Streep is also having a terrific year. She's a double contender for Best Actress, Comedy or Musical for "Julie and Julia" and "It's Complicated."

I enjoyed "Nine," but didn't love it, and I suspect many voters felt the same. The nominees from the film are certainly deserving especially Marion Cotillard (Best Actress, Comedy or Musical) and Penelope Cruz (Best Supporting Actress, Comedy or Musical). In my review of "Nine" (check it out here), I singlehandedly talked about those two actresses amidst the sprawling ensemble -- they saved the film for me.

But with "Nine's" screenplay nor director Rob Marshall not nominated, I predict the film will just be a bridesmaid and never a bride.

Here's the complete list of the nominees of the 67th Annual Golden Globes:
