Bullock And Streep Earn 2 Each
The nominations for the Golden Globes Awards were announced December 15 honoring Nine, Avatar and Inglourious Basterds. The popular show Glee raked in the TV nominations followed by 30 Rock, Big Love and Dexter.
Among the Golden Globe highlights is our girl Sandra Bullock scoring, not one, but two nominations. The actress who reported "my movies don't get nominated" is singing a different tune December 15 with her nomination for The Blind Side as well as her comedic nomination for The Proposal.
Meryl Streep also pulled double duty with her nomination for Julie and Julia as well as her priceless turn in Nancy Meyers' It's Complicated.
For the Best Picture Drama category, the nominations were hardly a surprise. Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious and Up in the Air will battle for that title while in the Best Picture, Comedy category -- the films 500 Days of Summer, The Hangover, Its Complicated, Julie & Julia and Nine earned the top nominations.
What was also fabulous to see from the Hollywood Foreign Press, who presents the Golden Globes, is their recognition of Courteney Cox in Cougar Town and Edie Falco for Nurse Jackie, both SheKnows interviewees!
Where the widely lauded Precious lands in terms of victories after its' slate of nominations is not clear. In any other year, the heartbreakingly terrific film would sweep the awards season. But, competing against George Clooney and Up in the Air and the enormous James Cameron return to cinema in Avatar, if the independent film wins it will be a huge and welcomed upset.
Female filmmakers were greatly represented with a best directing nod for Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker and Nancy Meyers (stay tuned to SheKnows December 18 for our exclusive with her!) for It's Complicated's screenplay.
The Golden Globe Awards will air Sunday, January 17, at 8 pm ET on NBC.
