2009 Golden Globes Nominations List

The nominations for the 2009 Golden Globe Awards have just been announced with some surprises and notable omissions.

"Frost/Nixon," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Doubt" led the film pack with five nominations each. Closely following with four were "Revolutionary Road", "Slumdog Millionaire", "The Reader", "The Dark Knight" and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona". "In Bruges" and "The Wrestler" came after that with three noms each.

The most notable MIA effort was "Milk", the critical favourite scoring just one nomination for Sean Penn's performance. Clint Eastwood got short shrift as well with "Changeling" and "Gran Torino" landing just one nomination each. Sundance winner and indie award favourite "Frozen River" was completely ignored.

Tom Cruise in "Tropic Thunder" beating out Michael Shannon in "Revolutionary Road" for Supporting Actor is a crime. That was balanced out however with the welcome surprise that the so far ignored but very deserving Kate Winslet scored nominations for her work in both "Revolutionary Road" and "The Reader".

On the TV front the cable series dominated the field again in drama, though comedy was mostly a network affair. "Mad Men," "In Treatment" and "Dexter" were the hot cable shows while "30 Rock" and "House" seem to be the pick of the regular networks. Here's the complete list:
