Golden Globes Up In The Air

'Up in the Air' starring George Clooney has received the most nominations at next year's Golden Globes.

The comedy drama - in which Clooney stars as Ryan Bingham, a corporate downsizer who travels the country delivering bad news - is up for six awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Actor for Clooney and Best Director for Jason Reitman.

Reitman said: "I can't put into words how exciting it is to feel and to know that I'll be going to the Golden Globes with everyone I worked with on this film.

"This was one of those ensembles that we really enjoyed working together. We're a tight-knit family. The idea that we're going together is just wonderful."

'Up in the Air' is closely followed by new musical movie 'Nine' which is named in five categories and science fiction film 'Avatar' and Quentin Tarantino's World Ward II parody 'Inglourious Basterds' which both have four nods.

Up for Best Actress are Emily Blunt for her performance in 'The Young Victoria', Sandra Bullock for 'The Blind Side', 'Last Station' actress Dame Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan for her role in 'An Education' and Gabourey Sidibe, who starred in 'Precious: Based on the Novel Push By Sapphire'.

In the equivalent male category, Morgan Freeman, Tobey Maguire, George Clooney, Colin Firth and Jeff Bridges are all vying for the prize.

Commenting on his nomination, Morgan - who was nominated for his performance in 'Invictus' - said: "I suspect we will do a little bit of celebration, not a whole lot, you know. But it's wonderful."

Meryl Streep has been nominated twice in the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical category for her roles in 'It's Complicated' and 'Julie and Julia'.

The ceremony will be held in Los Angeles on January 17 and will be hosted by Ricky Gervais.
