Nominees For the 2009 Golden Globe Awards

Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon Lead Golden Globe Nominations


The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Frost/Nixon came up big when the nominations for the Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning in Hollywood. Each of those films received five nominations, including one for the best dramatic film of the year. Doubt also received five nominations, although it was not nominated in the best dramatic film category.

Four other movies received four nominations each: Slumdog Millionaire, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Reader, and Revolutionary Road.

The Dark Knight received only one nomination, but it was a big one: Heath Ledger was nominated posthumously for Best Supporting Actor. Milk also only received one nomination, for Sean Penn.

On the television side, cable continued its dominance, with newcomer True Blood picking up a couple of nominations alongside Mad Men and Dexter. In Treatment was nominated for five awards, and on the comedy side, 30 Rock and Entourage led the nominations with three nods each. To see the complete list, just read more.
