RATE IT! Golden Globe Nominations

A sure sign of the year's end, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for their Golden Globe awards this morning. Many of the usual suspects, perennial award winners were in the mix: hello Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson, Sean Penn, Hugh Laurie, even Jeremy Piven -- but this year also saw some rising stars in movies & television in the mix: step forward Jon Hamm, January Jones, and Anne Hathaway.

Of note, Kate Winslet - one of my faves - received two noms, one each for 'Revolutionary Road' and 'The Reader', and Robert Downey Jr. also got selected for his hilarious turn in 'Tropic Thunder' (as did not-so-secret co-star, Tom Cruise). And the lovable 'Wall-E' looks to grab more hardware too (it's just got to beat 'Kung Fu Panda' -meh!).

The Golden Globes will be handed to those deemed deserving on January 11 at 8pm on NBC in North America. The full list of nominations can be examined here.
