The Golden Globe nomination were announced this morning, and in addition to providing a boost to surprise contenders like Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine) for Best Supporting Actress and Ron Howard’s racing movie, Rush, for Best Drama, there were others who were dealt a setback by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Oprah Winfrey and Lee Daniels’ The Butler? You don’t get a nomination! You don’t get a nomination!
Wolf of Wall Street‘s Martin Scorsese, who won in 2011 for directing Hugo and has been nominated in the category seven other times? Feel free to make other plans on Jan. 14.
Saving Mr. Banks earned just one nomination (Emma Thompson), with the HFPA ultimately deciding that Captain Phillips would be Tom Hanks’s prize.
And what about James Gandolfini for Enough Said? Back in September, an HFPA member hinted to EW that Gandolfini’s prospects for a Best Supporting Actor nomination weren’t too great, you know, because he’s not able to attend. Well… you can’t say the HFPA are liars.
