AWARDS SEASON

Up in the Air Leads Golden Globe Nods

Up in the Air confirmed its place as a heavy awards-season favorite during Tuesday morning's Golden Globe nominations announcement, garnering six honors, including a slot in the Best Picture - Drama category, but the big winners may have been Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep, who were both nominated twice. Streep's performances in Julie & Julia and It's Complicated got her named twice in Best Actress - Comedy or Musical, while Bullock was nominated once each in both Best Actress categories, for The Proposal (Comedy or Musical) and The Blind Side (Drama). The other Best Picture - Drama nominees included Inglourious Basterds, The Hurt Locker, Precious and Avatar. Musical Nine received five nominations—three of them for acting—while Precious and The Hurt Locker, two other Oscar frontrunners, only gathered three and two nominations, respectively. The television nominees included Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock, Neil Patrick Harris for How I Met Your Mother, and Mad Men for Best Television Series - Drama. The Golden Globes are presented annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
