GOLDEN GLOBES 2010 – NOMINATIONS

You could say the Hollywood Foreign Press has picked its top 10 films of the year with its nominations for best film in drama and musical/comedy categories, and it’s hard to argue with their votes, at least in mainstream cinema for 2009, says Andrew L. Urban.

The diversity is extraordinary, from James Cameron’s immense and satisfying Avatar to Lee Daniels’ small but gutwrenching second feature, Precious … but there are no surprises in the nominations list for the 68th Golden Globes, although some omissions – in the eyes of the beholder - are inevitable, with Clint Eastwood nominated for direction but his film, Invictus, omitted from the top list. Maybe it’s an each way bet …

Eastwood’s peers are all old hands except Jason Reitmen, but in the Best Actress list, two debuting actresses are recognised: Carey Mulligan in An Education and Gabourney Sidibe in Precious. Mo’Nique, whoi plays Sidibe’s mother in Precious is also – rightly – nominated for a Best Support gong, in heavy competition with some of Hollywood’s top names.

Meryl Streep has two nominations in the comedy/musical actress list, and for our money, they should break the rules and give her two Globes.
