2011 Golden Globe Nominations (Film)

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.

Box Office Breakdown: Jackass Kicks Competition’s Ass

Although the next Saw film isn’t due until October 29, many theatergoers saw pain inflicted in 3D this past weekend.

The premiere of Jackass 3D, a film based on the former MTV series, has already broken franchise and box office records since debuting three days ago. The documentary, which was produced for $19 million, earned a shocking $50.3 million -- approximately $21 million more than 2006’s Jackass: Number Two (and $28 million more than 2002’s Jackass: The Movie).

Paramount’s entry also bested previous October openers. Up until recently, Scary Movie 3’s $48.1 million from 2003 had been the figure to beat.

Meanwhile, Red generated what could have been first-place sized numbers on any other weekend. The action film starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren rang up $21.8 million -- enough for second place.

Box Office Breakdown: Very Small Take for Wes Craven

My Soul to Take

Neither Wes Craven’s name nor 3-D ticket prices could help Universal this weekend.

, which cost an estimated $25 million to produce, earned a scary $6.8 million over the past three days. (That’s a figure that includes ticket sales from 3-D venues.) The movie, which debuted in sixth place, was just one of several horror-ific disappointments this week. Two-week-old Case 39 fell to ninth place while Let Me In dropped completely out of the Top 10.

Romantic comedy raised $14.5 million, about $1 million shy of first place. (The Social Network was tops for the second time in a row.) Despite heavy promotion, Life was Katherine Heigl’s smallest debut since her pre-Knocked Up days.

, the weekend’s other new wide release, galloped into third place with $12.7 million. Seabiscuit, in comparison, premiered to $20.9 million in 2003.

Box Office Breakdown: Social Network Liked by Audiences

The Social Network

Theatergoers took time away from their personal Facebook accounts this weekend to enjoy some actual entertainment this weekend.

—David Fincher’s film about the creation of that social media site—raised enough friends over the last three days to land the biopic in first place. Network’s $22.4 million outing also gave screenwriter Aaron Sorkin his best opening to date.

’s long-awaited debut barely went noticed. The Renee Zellweger/Bradley Cooper movie, which had been waiting for a release date for over two years, was produced for an estimated $27 million. Unfortunately, it only earned back $5.4 million of that from domestic audiences.

Meanwhile, also struggled to find a warm welcome. The vampire thriller – a remake of Sweden’s Let the Right One In—took in only $5.1 million, enough for an 8th place finish.

Box Office Breakdown: Wall Street Rises to a Win

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Twenty-three years after we were first introduced to Gordon Gekko, Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone have both seen their stock go up. , which earned $19 million over the past three days, gave the Oscar-winning actor his first #1 film since 2001’s Don’t Say a Word and Stone his best debut to date. (That total is, of course, considered chump change to Shia LaBeouf.)

The weekend didn’t look quite so rosy for . Although the Zack Snyder-directed adaptation landed in second place, the movie only grossed $16.1 million. (Keep in mind that the movie cost $79 million to produce.)

Meanwhile, Disney proved Betty White’s mere presence doesn’t necessarily mean comedy gold. You Again – also starring Kristen Bell and Sigourney Weaver – debuted in fifth place with $10.6 million. (Somehow I doubt this will help Bell’s chances of ever getting a Veronica Mars movie off the ground.)

A personal development for Michael Douglas will not have any affect on his upcoming film.

Earlier this week, the Academy Award-winning actor announced he will be receiving treatment for a tumor discovered in his throat. Although very little was revealed about his diagnosis, it was revealed that Douglas will undergo eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy.

“I am very optimistic,” the 65-year-old said in a statement.

The health news comes just weeks before the Michael’s latest film, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, is set to debut. While it’s not known how Douglas’ voice might be impacted, if at all, the studio says things will go on as scheduled. Universal also expects Michael - who won an Oscar for his first portrayal of Gordon Gekko - to be able to promote the film.
