Home Celebrity Golden Globe Nominees: The Artist, Ides of March Rebounds, Viggo Returns

The Golden Globe nominations were pretty much scandal free this morning. Everyone got something with the exception of Stephen Daldry’s “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” which was incredibly late to be screened. But for the first time in years I can say I agree with the nominations, especially Rooney Mara for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” And the Globes rescued a few films, by nominating Viggo Mortensen for “A Dangerous Method” and Glenn Close and Janet McTeer for “Albert Nobbs.” Woody Harrelson was not nominated, yet got a big laugh by giving a plug for “Rampart” before he read off his list of nominations. Very witty. The Hollywood Foreign Press also loves George Clooney so much they brought back “Ides of March” and nominated Ryan Gosling for Best Actor, Clooney for Director, the film for Best Drama. Because the Globes divide between Drama and Comedy in most categories, lots of people got nominated who will not be going to the Oscars. This guarantees NBC a nice full room of stars on January 15th. Strangest nomination: Angelina Jolie for Best Foreign Film with “In the Land of Blood and Honey.” I guess it’s hard to break all bad habits at once.
