Golden Globes nominations 2011

STOP PRESS: Awards season is upon us.

The nominations for the Golden Globes were announced by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood in Beverly Hills this week.

The King’s Speech (which won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival and Best British Independent Film at the British Independent Film Awards) is leading the pack with seven nods – just ahead of The Social Network and The Fighter who are tied at six each.

Some controversy surrounds the exclusion of the Coen brothers’ True Grit from the nominations. Released within the Globes’ cut-off date, True Grit stars Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon and had been tipped to feature heavily in the Oscars.
