The Globes have come and gone, with no real surprises, which is probably a good thing -
check out the winners list here, or the full nominations list (including winners) at IMDb.
From the clips this morning, was nice to see Michael Douglas declaring the Best Film (Drama) category.
I have to say that I’m slightly annoyed about the best foreign language film… in so far as it not only hasn’t been released in the UK…
it doesn’t even have an upcoming release date on IMDb!
Finally, now that he’s
been confirmed as a Hollywood star, will Colin Firth go on to take the top gong at the Oscars? Nominations come out on the 25th Jan

My housemate may well have seen
In a Better World in Denmark. With the awards publicity, one would expect the film to gain a UK release this year.
The Bafta nominations are out…
No surprises there, which is nice to see.
No nominations for ‘The Tourist’ either, unlike the Golden Globes
Another win for The King’s Speech, this time in America!
I like the line near the bottom stating that they (Producers’ Guild of America) have agreed with the Academy on 13 of the last 20 best pictures. Not bad levels of agreement I guess
Oscar nominations are revealed today at 1.30pm!!!
Full Academy Awards nominations here:
No huge surprises, which is slightly disappointing.
I’d have to say that Best Supporting Actress looks a slightly weak category - and I’m flummoxed that Julianne Moore wasn’t considered for The Kids Are All Right, unless they deem her co-lead?
Still, Barbara Hershey was brilliant as the mother in Black Swan and she’s not in there either.

Razzie nominations are out too. Looks like Twilight: Eclipse and Last Airbender are dominating the nominations this year.

How did Roman Polanski (seemingly the film world’s favourite sex offender)
win an award for The Ghost?!? It was one of the worst films I saw last term.

Of course, we also have the most important results of them all:

It’s that Danish film again. It has a
UK release date (and a different English title) now.
28 February 2011 13:28
And let’s spare a thought for
True Grit, which was nominated in 10 categories but won nothing.
Cannes has voted, and the Palme D’Or winner is…
