Golden Globe Nominations For RED, Inception, Christopher Nolan And Darren Aronofsky

Golden Globe Nominations For <i>RED, Inception</i>, Christopher Nolan And Darren Aronofsky

Not a big year for CBMs, but some very prolific sci-fi/CBM directors have earned big nominations at the Golden Globes. Click for the full list UPDATE: The Walking Dead has also been nominated in the TV category..

Well, I say not a big year for CBMs but in fairness, there wasn't really that much to choose from It wasn't as if Iron Man 2 was going to be nominated for much(Although some recognition for the special effects at least would have been nice). Nothing for Matthew Vaughan's Kick Ass either unfortunately. The only true CBM that has been nominated is RED for best Motion Picture(Musical or Comedy). I thought RED was ok, but its not a comedy, certainly not a musical! If they really wanted to slot a CBM in there somewhere both Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim VS The World far more deserving. Anyway, Christopher Nolan, who of course brought us the last two Batman flicks, has been nominated for best director for Inception with the film itself picking up a nom for best picture(drama). The man who will bring us The Wolverine has also had a good showing with Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan receiving noms in several categories including best director and best picture(drama).



Also of interest to CBMers might be Jeremy Renner's(who will play Hawkeye in The Avengers) nom for best supporting actor for The Town, Christian Bale's(Batman) for The Fighter and Andrew Garfield's(Spider-Man) for The Social Network. Emma Stone(who will play Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man) also earned a well deserved best actress nom for her turn in Easy A. Likewise Jennifer Lawrence(who will play Mystique in X-Men: First Class) for her incredible performance in Winter's Bone.

Update: The awesome Walking Dead has picked up a nom for best TV show in the drama category.
