Golden Globes Mainly Stays the Course, but Offers a Few Surprises and Snubs

View Chris Kavan's Profile

While there are plenty of other awards to be handed out, there is no other awards show that acts like a barometer for the Oscars quite like the Golden Globes. So what does that mean? Good news for The King's Speech, The Social Network and The Fighter. It may mean bad news for True Grit, Winter's Bone and 127 Hours.

The King's Speech led all nominees with seven nominations, followed by The Social Network and The Fighter with six each. But who wasn't expecting that? Perhaps more surprising was that critical and commercial disappointment The Tourist snagged three noms including Best Actor and Actress in a Comedy and Best Picture in Comedy or Musical.

The biggest film missing from the nomination was the Coen Brothers remake of True Grit, which failed to get any nominations at all. Also on the short end of the stick were 127 Hours and Winter's Bone, which only managed to snag one nom each for James Franco as Best Actor, Drama and Jennifer Lawrence as Best Actress, Drama.

While The King's Speech and The Social Network were expected to garner many nominations, it looks like The Fighter is coming on strong including nominations for director David O. Russell and Mark Wahlberg in as Best Actor, Drama.

Blue Valentine also managed to score a few noms after skirting disaster by avoiding an NC-17 rating. Both Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams are up for award in the acting categories. Also scoring a successful nomination was Emma Stone for Easy A but will have a tough time against the one-two punch of Annette Bening and Julianne Moore from The Kids Are All Right.

It should also be noted that while Inception scored some pretty big noms - director, picture and screenplay - it was shut out of all the acting categories. And while the Burlesque and Red managed to get into the Best Picture, Comedy or Musical category, certified hit Toy Story 3 was relegated to the animated category only.

Any other snubs or surprises in the film categories this year? Anyone you hope to see at the Oscars that wasn't nominated or anyone you hope you won't see again? Fire away!

How in the crap was The Tourist nominated. Also Alice in Wonderland, and Red?! Didn't see any of this coming. Maybe this is just another realization of what a crap year this is. Admittedly, I haven't seen any of them yet. But, this now raises my expectations.
