67th Golden Globes Awards News

On Tuesday, December 15th at 5:00am PT the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will announce the nominations for the Golden Globes and while we wait here are some relevant news.

A record of 69 foreign language films are eligible for a Golden Globe nomination. As some of you recall this award does not limit one film per country, so you have several countries with more than one film. If you feel like checking the list please go here. From the list only 5 films will be nominated and honestly, it’s a hard choice from many excellent movies but I’m almost sure that A Prophet and The White Ribbon will be nominated and hope that films like Chile’s The Maid and Sweden’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will be honored too.

According to a press release 173 live-action feature films (105 dramas and 68 comedies or musicals), 15 animated feature films, 133 television series (79 drama and 54 comedies), 33 mini-series or telefilms and a record 103 songs have been qualified for the awards.

This year Mavis Spences was selected as 2010 Miss Golden Globe, she’s Alfre Woodard daughter and as I already shared, great Ricky Gervais will host the show.

So we have just a few days to learn the nominees and about a month to be able to watch the movies I haven’t seen as the award ceremony will be on January 17.
