Awards Season begins

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association 2008 Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning. Repeat offenders and usual suspects? Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes, Emma Thompson, 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey, Heath Ledger. I was pleasantly surprised to see silly comedies get recognized: James Franco nominated for Pineapple Express, Tom Cruise and Robert Downey, Jr. for Tropic Thunder, In Bruges for Best Picture. (Brendan Gleeson also for Best Actor...yeah!!!)

Broadway connections? Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry got nominated for The Reader, Frost/Nixon for Best Picture and Doubt for Best Screenplay.

Jon, True Blood and Jonathan Rhys Meyers from The Tudors got nods. Pinky, Mary Louise Parker and Weeds got recognized again. Neil Patrick Harris is also in the running for Best Supporting Actor.
