SEEING DOUBLE

on Dec 14, 2006

The Golden Globes were announced today and the big news are the duel nominations given out to Clint Eastwood for Best Director (Flags of Our Fathers, Letters From Iwo Jima) and Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Actor (Drama) (The Departed, Blood Diamond). As always it would have been nice to see The Hollywood Foreign Press think outside the box and give nominations to say Ryan Gosling for Best Actor or Pedro Almodovar for Best Director instead of taking the safe route but I guess that would be asking too much. The Globes will take place on January 15 on NBC.

And the nominees are…
