The King's Speech

Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood helped kick off the 2010-11 awards season Tuesday morning by formally announcing the latest round of Golden Globe contenders.

In the film category, The King's Speech -- starring Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush -- lead all nominees with a total of six nods. (The Fighter and The Social Network tied for second with six each.)

Although the Academy Awards will not necessarily mirror the choices made by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, there were some notable inclusions/omissions in this year's list of Globe nominees:

  • Justin Timberlake did not earn an acting nomination for The Social Network.
  • Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp were both recognized for their work in The Tourist, a movie that has been panned by critics. (BTW - they were nominated in the "Comedy" category.)
  • Speaking of Depp, he will be running against himself. (He was also nominated for Alice in Wonderland.)
  • Wall Street's Michael Douglas has now received another Golden Globe nod for his role as Gordon Gekko. (He won for Best Actor in 1987.)
  • Gwyneth Paltrow did not earn a nomination for her role in Country Strong.
  • 127 Hours was left out of the Best Movie category -- so was True Grit. (The Coen Brothers western received zero nominations.)

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

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.

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.

Amy AdamsThough I have to admit I was personally shocked, the flick , which offered a meld of cartoon melodrama and live-action sequences which were amazingly even more over-the-top, became one of the biggest stars of the early . , who played the princess, even snagged a jaw-dropping (on my end) . But now Adams isn’t sure where to take her career.
