2006 GOLDEN GLOBES NOMINEES ANNOUNCED

Leonardo DiCaprio and Clint Eastwood are seeing double this morning — the actor picked up Golden Globe nods for his lead roles in The Departed and Blood Diamond, while the director of the war movies Flags of Our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima will also battle himself for a statue. Alejandro González Iñárritu's Babel led the way in the film categories with seven noms, while The Departed brought in six and Dreamgirls five — though none of the musical's were for writing or directing. As expected, royal subjects Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) and Helen Mirren (The Queen) are strong contenders for the acting prizes. But there were some surprises: Maggie Gyllenhaal edged out Naomi Watts (The Painted Veil) to pick up a best actress nod for Sherrybaby, and there was no love in the major drama categories for the 9/11 film United 93, which had been racking up kudos from critics groups.

As for TV, ABC scored big, with four nominations for Grey's Anatomy, three for Desperate Housewives, and two for Lost. New shows Ugly Betty, Big Love, and Heroes got nods. Unlike last year, the Wisteria Laners don't completely dominate the Best Actress category (phew!) — Ugly Betty's America Ferrera was fresh blood in that category — and Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Michael C. Hall (Dexter), and Bill Paxton (Big Love) got lead acting nods for their new series.

The Golden Globes will be handed out Monday, Jan. 15, and televised live on NBC. Here are the nominees:

For all you fans of American Idol out there ( we had a thread this year that lasted for over 10,000 messages), you might remember Season 3's JENNIFER HUDSON, who was prematurely kicked out in favor of less talented singers.

Well, justice is served. She has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Effie White in the upcoming movie, "Dreamgirls"

See here : http://mjsbigblog.com/categories/americanidol/

-----------------------------

The nominations and awards have been coming fast and furious: Jennifer recently named Best Supporting Actress for her Role in "Dreamgirls" by the New York Film Critics Circle. And, she was recently named runner up for the Los Angeles Critics Association's Supporting Actress prize and received the Best Breakthrough Performance honor from the National Board of Review. Additionally, she was named Best Supporting Actress by the Washington D.C. Society of Film Critics.

Words can't express my feelings about The Wire not being nominated for best drama. And the ones that might come close aren't FR approved.

It's about time Peter O' Toole won. He has had 8 Oscar Nominations but never won even once. Always the best man, never the groom.

He faces some serious competition. I haven't seen his movie, but I like Leo a lot in both of his movies. And I guess Forest Whitaker is really good in The Last King of Scotland.

Just like Peter Boyle (who played Frank in Everybody loves Raymond). He was nominated 7 times for the Emmy, but never won. The only actor in the ensamble that didn't get the Emmy. And never will, since he died two days ago.

There are a lot of notable people who never got awards for their work. Martin Scorsese has gone without and it looks like he will continue to do so this year as well. Hitchcock never won an Oscar either.

I think a long-ago forgotten movie called "Joe" was one of his finest moments, long before he became a household word. Great film of a conservative father going underground to find his druggy daughter. Don't know if anyone else remembers that.

Anyway, he was a class comedian, with probably his funniest bit being in the Young Frankenstein movie when he was doing a dance in a top hat and tails trying to sing with Gene Wilder.

Gonna' miss him.

RE : Peter Boyle

He once said one of his biggest regrets was listening to his PR manager who advised him to turn down the role offered to him in the 1970's. He's still kicking himself in the behind after all these years for listening to him.

THE ROLE : POPEYE DOYLE
THE MOVIE : THE FRENCH CONNECTION.

Gene Hackman got the role and won his first OSCAR for it.

Doris Day turned down Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate out of moral reasons.
