Golden Globe Nominees
December 15, 2011 by staff
Golden Globe Nominees, It was a good day to be Ryan Gosling and George Clooney. It was a better day than yesterday to be The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Gosling and Clooney were among the top—and repeated—Golden Globe nominees, while the much-hyped, but SAG-snubbed David Fincher film got back in the game, to a point. A look at what went down:
In the glamour Best Motion Picture, Drama category, the Clooney-directed political drama The Ides of March will go up against the Clooney-starring dramedy The Descendants.
The Help, Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, Moneyball and Steven Spielberg’s War Horse were nominated, too, despite their lack of a certain silver-haired multihyphenate.
In other Clooney news, the star was nominated for Best Director (Ides of March), Drama Actor (The Descendants) and Best Original Screenplay (Ides of March).
Gosling, who was shut out at the SAG nominations, but otherwise has been an awards-season player, will go up against Clooney, his Ides of March costar, for Best Drama Actor.
In a mild surprise, Gosling’s also nominated for Best Comedy-Musical Actor, for the previously unheralded Crazy Stupid Love.
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, meanwhile, which has run hot and cold, was warm-ish at the Globes.
The film picked up two nominations: one for Original Score, and one key one for breakout star Rooney Mara (Best Drama Actress). But it failed to rate in any of the other big-boy categories, including director, screenplay and film.
