2012 Golden Globes Nominations Highlights

Brad, Blood and Honey, and Double Gosling — Highlights From the 2012 Golden Globe Nominations

It was a big morning for the stars of the big and small screens with the announcement of the 2012 Golden Globe nominees. Woody Harrelson, Sofia Vergara, Rashida Jones, and Gerard Butler rose early for the ceremony in LA.

Kate Winlset and her Mildred Pierce also garnered multiple notices.

The movie categories feature many of our favorite stars, from Ryan Gosling, who picked up two best actor nominations, to Michael Fassbender.
