The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, a group of about 85 critics and reporters for overseas outlets, have always proved eager to bring prime red carpet fodder to its televised award show. On Tuesday, they made sure they'll have a glitzy lineup for the January 16 event.
A few surprises, snubs and notable trends:
THE TOURIST? REALLY? Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's thriller opened last week to generally poor reviews and weak box office, but the film still won three nominations, including best film (comedy or musical), best actress for Angelina Jolie and best actor for Johnny Depp. Depp is twice nominated in the category (best actor in a comedy or musical) for Alice in Wonderland. The Globes, it would seem, REALLY want Depp at the show.
