Golden Globe nods hold some surprises

The Golden Globe Award nominations were announced Dec. 13—and, true to form, there were surprises.

The little-seen movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, a comedic drama from last spring with Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor (both of whom got nods), scored multiple nominations. In addition, Jack Black received a best actor in a comedy nod for his role in Bernie, which co-stars Shirley Maclaine.

However, some films and actors were expected to receive nominations, and did. Those included the movies Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, Argo and Life of Pi, and actors such as Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables), Helen Mirren (Hitchcock) and Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln).

Regarding TV nods, there were the usual suspects, including Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Homeland and The Newsroom receiving nominations for best drama. Smash, Girls and Episodes were the newcomers to the best comedy/musical category, which also includes The Big Bang Theory (starring out actor Jim Parsons) and Modern Family.

The Globes telecast will air Friday, Jan. 13, on NB, with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey co-hosting.
