The King’s Speech Leads Golden Globe Noms Plus Jeers and Cheers

The Golden Globes award noms (a.k.a the “friendly” awards) have been unveiled and The King’s Speech leads with seven nominations while The Fighter and The Social Network following close behind with six noms each. The Comedy or Musical categories remind us why the show is more of a popularity contest than anything else, but knowing that we can still have contempt for the whole thing, we’ll end up half-watching anyways when it airs next month.

The Golden Globes award noms (a.k.a the “friendly” awards) have been unveiled and The King’s Speech leads with seven nominations while The Fighter and The Social Network following close behind with six noms each. The Comedy or Musical categories remind us why the show is more of a popularity contest than anything else, but knowing that we can still have contempt for the whole thing, we’ll end up half-watching anyways when it airs next month. Before you get to the film-portion only of the nominations, here are some quick cheers and jeers.

Best Actress: Halle Berry squeezes into the Best Actress category snapping away a much needed mention for Another Year’s Lesley Manville. SPC’s early campaign for Animal Kingdom’s Jacki Weaver appers to have worked.

Best Actor: Younger generation Mark Wahlberg beats out vets Jeff Bridges and Robert Duvall. In fact, True Grit is not even on the scorecard.

Best Supporting Actress: Mila Kunis is favored over Winter’s Bone’s Dale Dickey, Greenberg’s Greta Gerwig and True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld who has collected several noms and wins in critic associations.

Best Foreign: The Concert over Carlos? You kidding me!
Best Supporting Actor: Andrew Garfield receives a nom for The Social Network. Armie Hammer is overlooked once again.

Cheers: Well-deserved noms for my favorite studio films of the year: The Social Network and The King’s Speech. Blue Valentine acting noms and affection for I Am Love and Easy A’s Emma Stone.
