69th Annual Golden Globe Nominations

As usual the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has focused mainly on stars rather than the year's best films (they nominated Ryan Gosling twice!), although the nominations are mostly by the book. The biggest exception is the inclusion of George Clooney's The Ides of March, which has been completely absent from the awards race thus far. The exclusion of Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is also surprising, which I would have thought would have played very well with the HFPA. I still expect it to have a big impact on Oscar voters. Its exclusion here doesn't necessarily negate its Oscar chances.

Here are the nominations in the film categories. For a complete list visit Awards Daily.
