Awards Watch: Golden Globe Nominations 2008

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced today the nominees for their 2008 Golden Globe Awards, and three dramas — The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Doubt and Frost/Nixon — lead the field with five nominations each. Both Button and Frost landed Best Picture nods, while Doubt saw all four of its main cast recognized.

The Reader, Revolutionary Road and Slumdog Millionaire round out the top five in Best Picture - Drama, while the Best Picture - Comedy or Musical nominees include Burn After Reading, Happy-Go-Lucky, In Bruges, Mamma Mia! and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. As you can see, Milk is notably absent, save for a Best Actor nod for Sean Penn; it at least faired better than Australia, which came up empty-handed. See the comments section below for a quick look at all the film nominees.

The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be broadcast live January 11 on NBC.
