Golden Globe Nominations were announced this morning, a few surprises, including the rare double nominations for Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DiCaprio (something the Academy prohibits). The ceremony will be telecast on NBC on Jan. 15th and one can only hope that Alec Baldwin will be the presenter for the best musical or comedy film and we get to hear him read out the entire tile of the Borat film.
Regardless, a big congratulations goes out to friend of the festival, America Ferrera for being nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy (Television) for her work on Ugly Betty, The show was also nominated for Best Musical or Comedy (Television). America attended the festival this year in support of her film Steel City, which was in the narrative feature competition.
