The 2nd biggest award show of the year has announced their nominees. Leading the pack with 7 nods is The King's Speech, followed closely by The Fighter and The Social Network with 6. Very interesting to see Mila Kunis pop up again, after she landed a spot with the Broadcast Critics too. Maybe she has more of a shot than I thought? VERY disappointed in their choices for Musical/Comedy Film. The only film that even remotely deserves a spot there is Kids, and maybe Red. Where's Kick-Ass? Where's Scott Pilgrim? Where's Toy Story? I mean...Burlesque? Burlesque? BURLESQUE? WTF???? Being the only musical of the year should not be an automatic bid for a Golden Globe! Once again HFPA, you have let me down. Oh, and seeing the list of 5 films for animated feature makes me sad, once again, that the Academy has a ridiculous rule about an arbitrary # of films needed for be released in a year. Film should be judged on QUALITY, not QUANTITY. All 5 of these deserve an Oscar nod, but only 3 will make the cut.
