I like to check this award as behaves like a possible indicator for the Golden Globes, which by the way next Tuesday we will learn the nominations and will find how similar or not are to this year Satellite nods. I had no idea that The Kids are All Right is a comedy (???) and doubt that Made in Dagenham is NOT a comedy as well as Love and Other Drugs, funny classification but this way includes almost everyone that was in a good movie this year. Still I’m glad that Noomi Rapace and her film got some well-deserved recognition.

Inception is the film with most nods (11) followed by 127 Hours with 9, The Social Network with 7, and The King’s Speech with 6; in television a series that has become my favorite got the most nominations: The Good Wife (5), tied with Glee that also has five.

About Winners

I'm so glad that the international press recognizes how great Noomi Rapace performance as Lisbeth is and even when these awards have very little influence into Oscar, there is hope that Rapace could get a nod. But the trend continues with The Social Network winning the major awards.
