'The Social Network' & 'The Fighter' Right Behind With 6 Noms A Piece



The nominations for the 2011 Golden Globes have been announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and they pretty much betray the same populist and ill-informed thinking that usually seems to mark the People magazine-friendly awards.

"The King's Speech" leads the pack with seven nominations, placing in almost every major category, with "The Fighter" and "The Social Network" following close behind with six nominations each. Somehow, Johnny Depp got nominated twice in the Best Actor In A Motion Picture (Musical Or Comedy) for his turns in the equally terrible films "Alice In Wonderland" and "The Tourist." And in a category that should be near-identically reflected when the Razzie noms are announced, Best Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy features "Alice in Wonderland," "Burlesque," "The Kids Are All Right" (obvs the single film worthy of note here), "Red" and "The Tourist."

Anyway, no big surprises here and the Golden Globes' tendency to place star power first is in clear evidence. Noms after the jump.
