The nominees for the 70th annual Golden Globes Awards have been announced! Unlike yesterday’s SAG nominations, “Life of Pi,” “Django Unchained,” and “Zero Dark 30” received a little love with both receiving Best Picture nods. 

“Moonrise Kingdom” was also acknowledged – though in the Best Picture, Musical, or Comedy Category along with “Les Misérables.” 

While Jennifer Lawrence received a nod for the SAG equivalent of Best Actress in a Leading Role, the “Silver Linings Playbook” actress was instead recognised in the Best Actress in a Musical, or Comedy category – which only makes sense. 

In her place, came a nod for Rachel Weisz in “The Deep Blue Sea.” 

And, it’s evident that Disney almost certainly has the best animation award in the bag – three of the five nominated are from the Mouse House. What may be the big surprise there is that the very popular “Wreck-It Ralph” actually has a chance at beating Pixar’s latest film “Brave.”  

Big surprises included: 

  • Keira Knightley’s “Anna Karenina” receiving a single nomination, but not for its acting.
  • “30 Rock” getting a snub for Best Television Comedy.
  • “The Newsroom” knocking “Mad Men” from the Best Television Drama category.
