    Golden Globe nominations announced

    "Brokeback" tops indie-dominated Golden Globes By Bob Tourtellotte 1 hour, 37 minutes ago



    BEVERLY HILLS, California (Reuters) - Gay cowboy romance "Brokeback Mountain," topped the Golden Globe nominations on Tuesday with nominations in seven categories, including best film drama, in a year dominated by independent and low-budget movies.

    For the first time, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which give out the Globes, shunned major Hollywood studio movies in its most widely watched category, best film drama, including Steven Spielberg's "Munich" and Peter Jackson's "King Kong."
    Joining "Brokeback" on the list for best film drama were "Good Night, and Good Luck," a stylish black-and-white movie directed by George Clooney, Woody Allen's story about British class warfare "Match Point," and two low-budget thrillers, "A History of Violence" and "The Constant Gardener."
    "Brokeback" also won nominations for best director, Ang Lee, best actor in a dramatic movie, Heath Ledger, best supporting actress, Michelle Williams, best screenplay, score and original song.
    The movie, which has won several critics' awards and is now a front-runner for the Academy Awards, was followed by "Good Night," "Match Point," and the film adaptation of the Broadway musical "The Producers," all with four nominations each.

    "The Producers" made the list of nominees for best film musical or comedy with Johnny Cash biopic "Walk the Line," "Mrs. Henderson Presents," about a nude revue in a London theater in World War II, "Pride & Prejudice," based on the Jane Austen novel, and independent hit "The Squid and The Whale."
    Of the movies, only "Producers" and "Walk the Line" could truly be called big-budget, Hollywood films. Spielberg and Jackson scored nominations for best director with "Munich" and "King Kong," respectively, but each film landed in only two groups. Another major movie notable for its lack of nominations was "Memoirs of a Geisha," also in only two categories.

    DISCERNING VOTERS
    Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Philip Berk called the absence of major studio films "a testament to the award process" and said it showed the association's roughly 90 members could be very discerning in their movie choices.
    The Golden Globes, which will be given out on January 16, are widely watched as a barometer for early Oscar contenders. Many of the nominees will go on to be nominated for Oscars, which are the U.S. film industry's top awards given out by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
    Along with Ledger, best actor for a film drama nominees included Philip Seymour Hoffman for his role as author Truman Capote in "Capote," Russell Crowe playing a boxer in "Cinderella Man," David Strathairn as newsman Edward R. Murrow in "Good Night, and Good Luck" and Terrence Howard as a pimp in "Hustle & Flow."

    Best actress nominees for a movie drama were Felicity Huffman portraying a transgendered character in "Transamerica," Gwyneth Paltrow for "Proof," Charlize Theron for "North Country," Ziyi Zhang in "Memoirs of a Geisha" and Maria Bello in "A History of Violence."
    Six actors landed nominations for best actor in a movie musical or comedy, including Joaquin Phoenix for "Walk the Line," Cillian Murphy in "Breakfast on Pluto," Nathan Lane in "The Producers,"Johnny Depp for "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," Pierce Brosnan in "The Matador" and Jeff Daniels for "The Squid and The Whale."

    Musical or comedy actress nominees were Judi Dench for "Mrs. Henderson Presents," Reese Witherspoon in "Walk the Line," Sarah Jessica Parker in "The Family Stone," Laura Linney for "The Squid and The Whale, and Keira Knightley in "Pride & Prejudice."
    Foreign language film nominees included two Chinese entries, "Kung Fu Hustle" and "Master of Crimson Armor," France's "Merry Christmas," South African movie "Tsotsi" and the Palestinian film "Paradise Now."

    Finally, unlike the Oscars, Golden Globe awards are also given in television categories. Best TV drama nominees were "Commander in Chief," "Grey's Anatomy," "Lost," "Prison Break" and "Rome."
    Best musical or comedy nominees were "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Desperate Housewives," "Entourage," "Everybody Hates Chris," "My Name is Earl" and "Weeds."

    Interesting that King Kong and Munich didn't get nominated but their directors did.

    Re: Golden Globe nominations announced

    They seperate alot more than the Academy does, more nominations = more celebrities in the house. They show up because the foreign markets are so important to their product.
    I'll always maintain that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (a relatively small collective) are people people. It's a bit like high school with money - if you're popular, you're in. If you've given them the time, etc. at the junkets and over the years, you're in.
    This event does more to reflect really what and how other countries "live through" America and American entertainment. A friend of mine at one of the studios refers to it as the Banana Republic of award season.
    It's a less like the Academy who like the prestige and momentum sheen to their nominated films.

    He was. You'll notice one DH was not in the Best Actress category. She's not popular w/ the HFPA, for a long time.

    Re: Golden Globe nominations announced

    I find it interesting which shows are comedy and which are drama. For example, Housewives is a comedy, but Grey's is a drama?

    Looking over the list, I'm thinking there will be some close decisions there. Only a few that truly stand out as frontrunners in my opinion.

    "Walk the Line" was a musical? I know there's music, but that's a bit muc.

    But, it's the HFPA, and does anyone take it that seriously? Charlie Sheen for actor in a TV comedy?

    I like that they go half toward the idiosyncratic, but the other half goes to "legends," usually unsung ones by carious Academies. Geena Davis, Charlie Sheen. These people have been around a long time.
    And the third half goes to foreign actors and filmmakers, and these are the ones that usually win.

    Re: Golden Globe nominations announced

    Yeah, definite surprises. Johnny Depp was nominated,
    his acting was ok, but not to the level that would warrant
    him being nominated. And has anyone seen The Producers
    yet? Was Will Ferrel really that good in that part?

    And what the heck is Weeds nominated for in so many
    categories, I tried watching the 1st couple of shows,
    and it stunk! And as for Curb Your Enthusiasm, initially
    the show seemed unique, but it wore out it's welcome
    real quick.

    And although I do enjoy Award Shows, I really am
    disgusted with how the majority of nominations for
    movies are all released within the last month.
    HELLLLLLLLLO!!!!!!!!!????????? WHAT ABOUT THE
    OTHER 11 MONTHS. Mr. Short Term Memory is
    ALWAYS the Main Person doing ALL the Nominations
    and it Drives me BeRserK!!!!!!
