2010 Golden Globe Nominations (Film)

Up in the Air

The 2009-10 awards season kicked into high gear this morning with the official announcement of the nominations. The event - which will be hosted by funnyman Ricky Gervais - will take place just over two weeks before the Academy Award contenders are revealed.

Here are some of the noteworthy mentions from this year’s list of film nominees:

  • leads all film nominations with six. The musical Nine follows with five while Avatar and Inglourious Basterds tied with four.
  • As expected, Meryl Streep has received another two mentions—unfortunately, they are both in the Comedy category (Julie & Julia, It’s Complicated). On the surprising end, Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side, The Proposal) and Matt Damon (Invictus, The Informant) both have two nominations as well—thankfully, in different categories.
  • Talk about drama! An ex-husband and wife will be competing against each other in the Best Director race. (Avatar‘s James Cameron and The Hurt Locker‘s Kathryn Bigelow.)
  • Despite backing from both Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey, is not a contender for Best Film. Mo’Nique and Gabourey Sidibe were both recognized for their excellent acting though.

The 67th Golden Globe Awards airs Jan. 17 on NBC.

Matilda Ledger to Receive Heath’s Golden Globe

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Awards, Celeb News,

Heath LedgerAlthough it was initially unclear who might accept any posthumous honors, there no is debate over who will receive his Golden Globe award.

According to Ledger’s ecstatic mother, the statue he was awarded last night - and any others that may follow - will eventually wind up with Heath’s daughter, Matilda. Sally Bell told People. “At this stage she is only so young, but down the track she will have all these things. It will belong to her because she is part of him.”

“It is such a fantastic and wonderful legacy for his daughter. Matilda will have so many people who will be able to speak to her about her father’s abilities and [the] respect he had in the industry. That is such a wonderful legacy to leave,” Bell added.

Well, the family better start clearing some space in Matilda’s room now. Something tells me she’ll be collecting a few more mementos soon…

Golden Globes' Anne Hathaway mistake

UPDATE: You can find out who eventually won that Golden Globe here.

Could soon be picking up her second award of the week?

On Thursday night, the star of picked up a Best Actress statue at the 14th annual Critics’ Choice Awards. (Hathaway actually tied with Doubt‘s Meryl Streep, her Devil Wears Prada co-star, for the award.) Now she may be adding a Golden Globe to her mantel as well.

If you were to check out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s web site earlier this week, you might have noticed a small star where it shouldn’t have been. Or at least not yet. The star, which usually indicated a category’s winner, was placed next to Hathway’s name. Was it simply an accident…or the result of a twitchy finger? Well, we’ll know for certain this Sunday when the 66th annual event airs on NBC.

Academy Says Oscars Won’t Change

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Awards,

Academy AwardIt seemed like a fairly simple issue to resolve. It looked pretty cut-and-dry. But that was back in November, when the first went on . More than two months later, the picture is much more grim.

Now, LA businesses are out $1 billion and stand to lose another $80 million when the as planned. Now, the strike is affecting more than , , and all those others. Now, it’s cutting into the .

Proposed New Year’s Resolutions for Movie Studio Executives

New Year's Clock



A quintessential holiday morsel:

‘Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la … la la la la

And there must be no shortage of jolliness for big-name film studios as we enter the last days of the year—2007 has been one of the most lucrative in film history. But after the holiday parties end, and the final box-office spreadsheets have been tucked under the pillow (or thrown on the fire), the time comes for rebirth and renewal. After all, the target demographic will be looking for something new, and the critics certainly weren’t impressed with much of this year’s fare. Perhaps everyone can be happy in 2008, as the medium returns to its glory days of content-rich, engaging filmmaking.

Alright, you people aren’t buyin’ it.
