OSCAR WATCH: Golden Globe Nominations

The Golden Globe nominations dropped this morning and they were actually a strong list (especially after the embarrassing Comedy lineup last year). The biggest surprise nominee was "The Ides of March" which evidently played very well with the voters. The film picked up a much needed boost with 4 big nominations (Picture, Director, Actor and Screenplay).
