Well, this morning the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a shady cabal whose membership is never made clear, announced its nominees for the 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The list looks like you’d expect it would, given the fact that there have been some really solid movies this fall but no clear front-runner when it comes to awards buzz. Atonement scooped up seven noms to lead the film pack, followed by Charlie Wilson’s War with five and Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men, and Sweeney Todd with four apiece. Perhaps most interesting is that this year’s dramatic film competition has ballooned to seven contenders instead of the usual five; Harvey Weinstein must’ve written a fat check to someone to get The Great Debaters in there.

The TV side is also interesting, with the comedy category offering a particularly tight race: “30 Rock,” “Pushing Daisies,” and “Extras” are all up for best comedy series. Would that they could all win.

Anyway, a partial list is below, and a full one can be found at IMDb. (I’d direct you to the HFPA site, but it’s photo-intensive and somewhat stupid.) If you love the noms, hate them, or just want something to bitch about because it’s Thursday — there’s the ball, B-Slim, take it and run — share your opinions below.
