The 2011 Golden Globe Nominations

This year's Golden Globe nominations have been announced with The Weinstein Company's "The Artist" scoring the most nods with six. Combined with numerous other wins from various critics associations, the black-and-white silent film has become the clear front runner in the run-up to the Oscars.

Not far behind at the Globes are "The Descendants" and "The Help" which both scored five, while "The Ides of March," "Midnight in Paris" and "Moneyball" got four. All the above mentioned also got Best Picture nominations, joined by "War Horse" and "Hugo" in the drama category along with "50/50", "Bridesmaids" and "My Week with Marilyn" in the comedy/musical section. Also of note is that Ryan Gosling scored nominations for Best Actor in both drama ("The Ides of March") and comedy ("Crazy Stupid Love"). Big shockers were the lack of nominations for both "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close".

Over in the TV realm and it was mostly new cable shows dominating drama with the second season of "Boardwalk Empire" going up against the first seasons of "American Horror Story," "Boss," "Game of Thrones" and "Homeland" for the 'Best Television Series: Drama' category. "Glee," "Modern Family," "New Girl," "Enlightened" and "Episodes" will fight it out for the best comedy series honour. Also scoring noms in acting categories were "Breaking Bad," "The Borgias," "The Good Wife," "The Killing," "Revenge," "30 Rock," "Hung," "Californication" and "Parks and Recreation".

The mini-series/TV movie category is mostly made up of several nominations for British imports "Downton Abbey" and "The Hour" along with HBO productions "Cinema Verite," "Mildred Pierce" and "Too Big To Fail".
