Golden Globes 2010 – Nominations

The 67th Annual Golden Globes take place on 17th January 2010 and are the first major awards to be handed out in what will be another busy awards season. Because I had been slipping with the blog for the last few weeks I still had not posted this years nominations.

As we know suprises do happen with awards, but will it be like last year? Don’t forget the Golden Globe winners are usually then tipped to take home the Oscar, although I am still disapointed that Mickey Rourke did not end up with the Oscar last year so it is not a dead cert.

What do you make of these nominations?
