The King's Speech Leads Globes' Nods

Harvey Weinstein's famed talent for capitalizing on the awards season to market his films was once again on prominent display this morning (Tuesday) as The Weinstein Co.'s The King's Speech garnered seven Golden Globes nominations, leading all other films. They included best dramatic picture, director (Tom Hooper), actor (Colin Firth), screenplay (David Seidler), supporting actor (Geoffrey Rush), supporting actress (Helena Bonham Carter), and original score (Alexandre Desplat). The Weinsteins' Blue Valentine also drew key nominations in the best-actor and -actress categories for Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams. Sony's The Social Network and Paramount's The Fighter were nominated in six categories each, including best dramatic picture. Also included in that category were Warner Bros.' Inception and Fox Searchlight's Black Swan . Nominated for best comedy or musical were The Kids Are All Right, Alice in Wonderland, Burlesque, The Tourist and RED . Although it's the second-best known awards ceremony, the Golden Globes, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, comes in for a fair share of criticism for its selections each year from movie columnists, TV critics, and bloggers. This year is likely to be no exception. The inclusion of The Tourist , one of the most critically reviled movies of the year and a dud at last weekend's box office, in the best comedy or musical category was likely to set tongues wagging immediately.
