by | December 15, 2009 at 9:19 AM | Golden Globes, The Movies

It’s that time of year again. The Academy Awards bellwether ceremony, aka the Golden Globe Awards, have announced their nominations. You can check out the TV nominees here, but the movie nominees are an interesting selection. See if you agree with what the Hollywood Foreign Press had to say about 2009′s cinematic offerings. They really seem to like George Clooney, as Up In The Air leads the pack with six nods, and of course they always like Meryl Streep – this time so much they nominated her twice in the same category.
