2007 Golden Globe Nominations Announced

The 2007 Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning.

I haven't seen Babel or several of the films, but I did like Martin Scorcese's The Departed a lot and am glad to see Leonardo DiCaprio get a best actor's nod for it. How strange that he's running against himself -- he's also up for the best actor award for Blood Diamond, another film I am anxiously awaiting.

The Departed's nomination for best picture seems like a stretch though -- and I would have liked am glad to see Jack Nicholson get a nomination for it.

As for the tv nominations, I hope Grey's Anatomy wins them all. I am seriously addicted to the show and every one of its characters.

    Seriously, how can there be a nomination for best TV drama and not have this included? The Hollywood Foreign Press must be using Marlo's product.

    Battlestar Galactica (none / 0) (#2)

    If Hollywood could get over its problem with recognizing sci-fi as anything other than B-rated genre, Battlestar Galactica would have been recognized with a nomination for TV drama.

    Jack Nicholson WAS nominated (none / 0) (#3)

    Jack Nicholson was nominated for best supporting actor for The Departed. And I disagree with you that The Departed's nomination is a stretch. The film was simply brilliant, brilliantly acted, and directed.

    I agree with the comment about The Wire. Marlo's package indeed. Hahaha.

    Thanks for the correction (none / 0) (#4)
