George Clooney rules at The Golden Globe nominations

Writer-director-actor, George Clooney, who has been nominated 8 times and won twice in previous years, scores 4 Golden Globe nominations today in Best Dramatic Actor for playing a beleaguered father in the Descendants,  Best director, Best screenwriting and Best picture for his political drama The Ides of March.

But the biggest winner in this years Globes nomination is the silent movie, The Artist, gaining 6 nominations in the categories of Best Drama, Best Director  and Best Screenplay for Michel Hazanavicius, Best Lead Actor for  Jean Dujardin and Best Supporting Actress for Berenice Bejo.

Hot on the heels of The Artist comes The Help and The Descendants each with 5 nominations including Best Drama for both, alongside Hugo, The Ides of March, Moneyball and War Horse.

Moneyball, The Ides of March, Midnight in Paris, My Week With Marilyn and Bridemaids are up for 3 prizes apiece.

Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar), Brad Pitt (Moneyball), Michael Fassbender (Shame) and Ryan Gosling (The Ides of March) join George Clooney in the Best Lead actor in drama, while Brendan Gleeson (The Guard), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (50/50), Ryan Gosling (Crazy, Stupid, Love) and Owen Wilson (Midnight in Paris) are up against Jean Dujardin in the Best Lead actor in a comedy.

Golden Globe awards also recognize TV shows.  This year two British TV shows receive nods: The Hour with 3 nominations and Downton Abbey, which scores 4 nominations in the Best mini-series, Best actress for Elizabeth McGovern, Best Actor for Hugh Bonneville and Best Supporting actress for Maggie Smith.

 Other Brits featured in this years golden Globe nominations are Kate Winslet with two nods, one for Carnage and another for Mildred Peirce, Kenneth Branagh for My Week With Marilyn, Tilda Swindon for We Need To Talk about Kevin, Elton John for Gnomeo & Juliet, Jeremy Irons for The Borgias, Damian Lewis for Homeland, Romola Garai  and Dominic West for the Hour, Emily Watson for Appropriate Adult, Idris Elba for Luther, Bill Nighy for Page Eight and Kelly McDonald for Boardwalk Empire.

Glaringly absent in this year’s Globe nominations is Tailor, Tinker, Soldier, Spy and its star Gary Oldman, and Cannes’ Winner, The Tree of Life. Other pics such as the comedy Win Win, which was released back in February, and the Lebannes movie Where We go Now, which has won Toront Film Festival, were also missing in the Best Comedy category and Best Foreign movie category respectively.

 The Golden Globe awards are voted for by the 83 members of the LA-based Hollywood Foreign Press association. The final winners will be announced at the Annual Golden Globe ceremony on 15 January.

 The Golden Globe award show is the second most important event in Hollywoods Calendar. It will be hosted by British comedian Ricki Gervais, who hosted it previously in 2010 and 2011.
