2010 Golden Globe Nominations

Posted by LiveFor on December 15, 2009

The nominations for the 2010 Golden Globe Awards are out and to be honest there is not that much of a surprise. However, they are often give a good idea as to what will show up in the Oscars – (THE RESULTS ARE NOW OUT AND THE WINNERS ARE…)

Nice to see Inglourious Basterds nominated and Avatar has slipped in there despite not being on general release yet.

I personally hope Jeff Bridges gets the award for best actor as the Dude abides.

The awards will be given on Sunday 17th January 2010 on NBC.
