Golden Globe nominations arrive

GoldenGlobe.jpgThe Golden Globe nominations have arrived, and while every critic group everywhere are making their choices and making it clear that The Social Network is leading the way in wins and nominations, the Golden Globes aren't going their way.

In fact nominations wise, for that's all we're looking at for now, the film that's come out best is The King's Speech with seven nominations including best dramatic film and highlighting Colin Firth for best dramatic actor.

The list is looking good for British film, however we have to realise that the winning is a whole different thing and we have seen films with many nominations lose out in the end, and this is an American awards ceremony where you wouldn't expect a British film to dominate.

The Social Network is in there, it's been leading the various different critics awards that have been coming out, you can see the running list over on IMDB – I decided there was no way I was covering every single announcement this year and will do a round-up when most of them are in – but it isn't dominating here, and here's a strong indicator of what is likely to happen in the Oscars.

Let's stop chatting and get straight to the matter in hand, here are the nominees for the Golden Globes:

You know I have to admit that looking down that list I don't feel that there are any big shocks or omissions, and while The Social Network may not be leading the race in nominations, it's there in the key categories and carries a good chance of winning them.

Elsewhere we see the films we would expect to see, and this list suggests it could be a good year for seeing some deserving films win. I also think it's really tough to pick winners out of that lot, what do you think, could you pick some winners?
