Golden globe film nominations!!

The Golden Globe film Noms are out and here’s who is in!

The King’s Speech, the critically acclaimed historical drama about King George VI, cemented its reputation as the film to beat at the Oscars with a Globes-best seven nominations.

The Fighter, the Mark Wahlberg-produced boxing biopic, and The Social Network, the Facebook movie, earned six nods each.

Burlesque, the “dishwater dull,” “crockpot-stew of leftovers” backstage dance movie, received two more nominations than Toy Story 3, including one big one for Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical.

Angelina Jolie‘s and Johnny Depp‘s even more critically dismissed The Tourist had an equally good day, likewise picking up three nods, and likewise competing for Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical.  

The television categories were led by Glee, which glided right past any perceived second-season storyline woes with five nominations.

As expected, The King’s Speech will vie for Best Motion Picture Drama against The Social Network, The Fighter, Inception and Black Swan.

If you had faith that the star-worshipping Hollywood Foreign Press would not disappoint with a “crazy” nomination (or two), then you were not at all surprised that Burlesque and The Tourist will compete for Motion Picture Comedy or Musical opposite Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right and the oldester action flick Red. Of those films, only The Kids Are All Right is considered legit Oscar material. 

The 68th Annual Golden Globes are scheduled for Jan. 16.
