2012 Golden Globe Nominations: ‘American Horror Story,’ ‘The Artist’ And More!

3

The Artist lead the way at the 2012 Golden Globes nominations. The silent film received six nominations including Best Musical or Comedy, Best Actor Musical and Best Supporting Actress Musical. Michel Hazanavicius has also been nominated for Best Director and the movie is also up for Best Screenplay and Best Original Score.

Hazanavicius will take on George Clooney (The Ides of March), Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris), Alexander Payne (The Descendants) and Martin Scorsese (Hugo) in the Best Director category, while the film will compete with 50/50, Midnight in Paris, Bridesmaids and My Week with Marilyn for Best Musical or Comedy.

Meanwhile, The Help is up for Best Picture, Drama and is up against The Descendants, Hugo, The ides of March, Moneyball and War House.

Other nominees include Kenneth Branagh, Tilda Swinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Kate Winslet and the winners will be announced at the star-studded ceremony on January 15, 2012.

On the television side, the freshman series Homeland racked up an impressive list of nominations including Best Drama Series, Best Actor in a Drama, and Best Actress in a Drama. FX’s American Horror Story is also a newcomer to the nominations picking up nods for Best Drama Series and Supporting Actress.

The awards will once again be hosted by Ricky Gervais. Gervais stirred up a bit of controversy last year when he mocked a number of stars including Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr. and Steve Carrell. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) president Philip Berk – who was also the subject of jibes by the host – was unimpressed.

We’re glad they got over it, because we think Gervais made a FABULOUS host!

We’ve got the full list of the 69th annual Golden Globe nominations for you guys below!

——————

I’ve added a star next to each of our predictions. Let me make a note on those predictions though – especially for Best Actress in a Comedy. We personally think Amy Poehler should win, but based upon past award shows shunning Parks and Rec… we don’t think it’s very realistic that Amy will win – which is messed up. We just wanted to put that out there!

  1. I actually just saw it last night – have a review coming online tomorrow for it. It’s a brilliant movie. Black and white – and silent minus the beautiful score. It’s set in the 1920’s in Hollywood. I highly highly recommend it. Though I believe it should have been nominated under drama here. Yes it has a score – but that doesn’t make it a musical – and it’s not a comedy.
