(Newser) Up in the Air ruled this morning’s Golden Globes nominations with six, including best director, actor, and picture (drama). Nine was a close second with five nominations, including best picture (comedy/musical). In the television categories, Glee came in first with four nominations, including best series—and, not surprisingly, HBO was the leader in nominations by network, with a whopping 17 to second-place Fox’s six.

Other notable nominees include Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, and Matt Damon, each of whom scored two acting nods—Streep, however, is the only one who will compete with herself; Bullock and Damon could potentially win in two categories. James Cameron’s Avatar—object of much hype and speculation—with four nominations, tied for third place with Inglourious Basterds. For the complete list of nominees, click here.
