67th Annual Golden Globe Nominations Announced

— by RACHEL COYNE —

The nominations for the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning, and as it is every year, the nominees were a mix of sure things, surprises and WTF moments:

Sure Thing: Clint Eastwood gets a Best Director nod for “Invictus.” Look for another nomination next year with the feature, “Cranky Old Men Doing Whatever.”

Surprise: “(500) Days of Summer” is nominated in both the Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical categories. The movie came out over the summer, so color me surprised that anyone remembered how good it was.

WTF: Sandra Bullock gets nominated … twice — for her performances in “The Proposal” and “The Blind Side.” I find Bullock as charming as the next person, but have never found her to be an award-worthy actress. Clearly somebody in the Hollywood Foreign Press disagrees with me.

The Golden Globe Awards air on Jan. 17, 2010, on NBC and will be hosted by British hilariousman (funnyman seems too weak) Ricky Gervais.

    I’m really hoping the hurt locker wins some and def. District 9 should win best screenplay. Also Hugh Laurie for best actor drama. I’m looking forward to watching this one.

    Even though this is a movie site, I feel the need to use every forum available to vent my anger at “Breaking Bad” getting nothing in the television categories. That was the best season of anything on TV this year.
