67th Golden Globes nominations announced

GoldenGlobe.jpgThe 67th Golden Globes nominations have been announced for both film and television, that means the awards for 2009-2010, although not inclusive of the entire year for either 2009 or 2010, something that always confuses me and probably why they number them and not add a year to the awards title.

Anyway, it’s an interesting list film wise, and when compared with the currently running and always updated U.S. Film Critics Awards for 2009 it’s providing a possible picture for the Academy Awards next year.

Now remember these are just the nominations, we have until January 17th 2010 before we actually hear the winners, but combining these with the U.S. Film Critics winners and you could make some strong judgement calls for some of these awards.

Best Motion Picture – Drama
Avatar
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds
Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire
Up In The Air

Now here I'm stuck. I would be saying Avatar (Filmstalker review) or The Hurt Locker (Filmstalker review).

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Emily Blunt – The Young Victoria
Sandra Bullock – The Blind Side
Helen Mirren – The Last Station
Carey Mulligan – An Education
Gabourey Sidibe – Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire

Now this is difficult, look at the Critics Awards and you'll see that this isn't that clear cut. I'm not calling it.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama
Jeff Bridges – Crazy Heart
George Clooney – Up In The Air
Colin Firth – A Single Man
Morgan Freeman – Invictus
Tobey Maguire – Brothers

This is going to be between Jeff Bridges or George Clooney, and I think Bridges might get there first. Although there is an outside chance that Morgan Freeman could win it for his performance as Nelson Mandella don't you think?

Best Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy
(500) Days Of Summer
The Hangover
It's Complicated
Julie & Julia
Nine

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy
Sandra Bullock – The Proposal
Marion Cotillard – Nine
Julia Roberts – Duplicity
Meryl Streep – It's Complicated
Meryl Streep – Julie & Julia

Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy
Matt Damon – The Informant!
Daniel Day-Lewis – Nine
Robert Downey Jr. – Sherlock Holmes
Joseph Gordon-Levitt – (500) Days Of Summer
Michael Stuhlbarg – A Serious Man

Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Penélope Cruz – Nine
Vera Farmiga – Up In The Air
Anna Kendrick – Up In The Air
Mo'nique – Precious: Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire
Julianne Moore – A Single Man

Best Performance by an Actor In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Matt Damon – Invictus
Woody Harrelson – The Messenger
Christopher Plummer – The Last Station
Stanley Tucci – The Lovely Bones
Christoph Waltz – Inglourious Basterds

Watching the Critics Awards they're very clear on this one, it's Christoph Waltz. I do think that this one is really hotly contended, and it's hard to call, but he's the clear runner so far.

Best Animated Feature Film
Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs
Coraline
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Princess And The Frog
Up

Good to see Coraline (Filmstalker review) up there, but I suspect it will go elsewhere. Up? Fantastic Mr. Fox?

Best Foreign Language Film
Baaria
Broken Embraces
The Maid (La Nana)
A Prophet (Un Prophete)
The White Ribbon (Das Weisse Band - Eine Deutsche Kindergeschichte)

Best Director - Motion Picture
Kathryn Bigelow – The Hurt Locker
James Cameron – Avatar
Clint Eastwood – Invictus
Jason Reitman – Up In The Air
Quentin Tarantino – Inglourious Basterds

I'm definitely thinking Kathryn Bigelow so far, but I wonder if Eastwood's portrayal of Nelson Mandella in a huge moment in history might take it for the true life story?

Best Screenplay - Motion Picture
District 9 - Neill Blomkamp, Terri Tatchell
The Hurt Locker - Mark Boal
