BEST MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
Black Swan (Fox Searchlight Pictures)
The Fighter (Paramount Pictures)
Inception (Warner Bros. Pictures)
The King’s Speech (The Weinstein Company)
The Social Network (Sony Pictures)
I've only seen Inception and Social Network, and I'm great with both of those. If Black Swan, The Fighter and The King's Speech are all better than 127 Hours, then great! I thought True Grit might be able to sneak in. So far so good.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
Halle Berry - Frankie & Alice
Nicole Kidman - Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence - Winter’s Bone
Natalie Portman - Black Swan
Michelle Williams - Blue Valentine
No glaring omissions here, looks good...
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
Jesse Eisenberg - The Social Network
Colin Firth - The King’s Speech
James Franco - 127 Hours
Ryan Gosling - Blue Valentine
Mark Wahlberg - The Fighter
BEST MOTION PICTURE - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Alice in Wonderland (Walt Disney Pictures)
Burlesque (Screen Gems)
The Kids Are All Right (Focus Features)
Red (Summit Entertainment)
The Tourist (Sony Pictures)
And here's where the Globes are a complete joke. I haven't seen Burlesque or The Tourist, but I've read the reviews. Why nominate those when they could've nominated Scott Pilgrim vs. the World or even Date Night? Heck, any comedy that remotely got a handful of laughs would've been better. This is where it's clear the HFCA just wanted to make sure Cher and Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie all knew they were invited to the party.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Annette Bening - The Kids Are All Right
Anne Hathaway - Love and Other Drugs
Angelina Jolie - The Tourist
Julianne Moore - The Kids Are All Right
Emma Stone - Easy A
Not a bad list, considering. Ignoring Jolie, since every review I've read says she has zero chemistry with Depp.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Johnny Depp - Alice in Wonderland
Johnny Depp - The Tourist
Paul Giamatti - Barney’s Version
Jake Gyllenhaal - Love and Other Drugs
Kevin Spacey - Casino Jack
Depp twice? They didn't want to nominate Robert Downey Jr. for Due Date? Not saying he deserves it for Due Date, just that HFCA likes to nominate people they want to hang out with.
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
Despicable Me (Universal Pictures)
How to Train Your Dragon (DreamWorks Animation)
The Illusionist (Sony Pictures Classics)
Tangled (Walt Disney Pictures)
Toy Story 3 (Disney•Pixar)
Fine and good. Toy Story 3 and How to Train Your Dragon might both make my top ten list.
BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
Biutiful (Mexico /Spain)
The Concert (France)
The Edge (Russia)
I Am Love (Italy)
In a Better World (Denmark)

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
Christian Bale - The Fighter
Michael Douglas - Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
Andrew Garfield - The Social Network
Jeremy Renner - The Town
Geoffrey Rush - The King’s Speech
Loving that Bale finally found a role to get him award recogntion, his work in The Machinist and Rescue Dawn notwithstanding. Also glad that Renner's work in The Town is not being forgotten.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES - DRAMA
"Boardwalk Empire" (HBO)

BEST TELEVISION SERIES - COMEDY OR MUSICAL
"30 Rock" (NBC)
"The Big Bang Theory" (CBS)
"The Big C" (Showtime)
"Modern Family" (ABC)
"Nurse Jackie" (Showtime)
Okay, I've seen one episode each of The Big C and Nurse Jackie and was not impressed. And NBC has three other shows on Thursday (Community, Parks & Recreation, The Office) that are funnier than 30 Rock. Happy for Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and Glee, though I don't watch Glee anymore.
