The Social Network got a lot of love this morning as the Golden Globe nominations were announced, but British monarchy tale The King's Speech was the biggest hit with seven nominations. The Social Network and The Fighter followed with six nominations each, the AP reports. Among the more shocking nominees: Oft-mocked Jennifer Love Hewitt for best actress in a TV miniseries (The Client List), and critically-panned Burlesque and The Tourist for best movie comedy or musical.
Other best picture nominees in the comedy or musical category included Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right, and Red. Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The King’s Speech, and The Social Network snagged best picture nominations in the drama category. Acting nods went to, among others, Alec Baldwin, Steve Carell, James Franco, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, and Johnny Depp—who will be competing against himself in the comedy or musical department thanks to The Tourist and Alice. Glee led TV nominations with five. Click for the complete list of Golden Globe nominees.
