Golden Globe Nominations 2011

It's nearly movie award time again and the nominations for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards have just been announced. Katie Holmes, Blair Underwood and Josh Duhamel helped announce the 2011 Golden Globe nominees on 14th December at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. The Golden Globe Awards has been arranged to take place on Sunday 16th January, 2011, at the Beverly Hilton, and the host will be British comedian Ricky Gervais. British film, The King's Speech is in the running to pick up an award with seven nominations in total, with The Social Network, Black Swan, The Fighter and The Kids Are All Right also ranking high. Colin Firth who stars in The King's Speech, which is being released in America over the Christmas holidays and in the UK on 7th January, is up for Best Actor, and he's up against James Franco who stars in 127 Hours, which has also recieved three nominations for a Golden Globe Award, and Jesse Eisenberg who starred in The Social Network. Best Actress could go to the likes of Halle Berry for her role in Frankie and Alice, or Nicole Kidman who starred in the film Rabbit Hole. There was no surprise that the much loved Toy Story 3 has gained a nomination in the Animated Film Catagory, and Glee and Dexter have ranked highly in the Television Catagories. The biggest surprises of this year's nominations is that True Grit, a film that gained good reviews and was considered to be an award winner, gained no nominations for a Golden Globe, and the fact that thriller film, The Tourist, starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, is up for three nominations, but recieved poor reviews after it's release last week. Also the nominees in the Musical/Comedy Catagory haven't gone down too well, with The Tourist, Burlesque, Red and Alice In Wonderland all recieving average reviews. There is always speculation and debates about Golden Globe nominations, with shock and surprise thrown in, which makes the Golden Globe Awards as exciting as they are. The Golden Globe Awards give us some idea as to who will be in the running for an Oscar Award, which will be the next major movie event held in February 2011. It's certainly going to be interesting to see which films take away the awards next year at one of the biggest movie award ceremonies the world has to offer.
