With all the pomp and splendor that the precursor to the Academy Awards should have, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced this year’s stable of Golden Globe nominees.
A press conference was held this morning at The Beverly Hilton where the announcements were made by Jessica Biel, Rosario Dawson and Matthew Perry.
Babel aimed high and was rewarded with seven nominations, including best picture-drama and best director. In direct competition with Babel is Martin Scorsese’s, The Departed, with six nods. Rounding out the top three is Dreamgirls with five nominations.
In the television categories, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and Showtime’s Weeds share the top spot with four nominations each. Not to be out done by these two relative newcomers, veteran shows like 24 and Desperate Housewives still pulled in 2 and 3 nominations, respectively.
The Award Ceremony will take place on January 15, 2007 at the Beverly Hilton
