‘Social Network,’ ‘Glee’ Rule Golden Globes

Facebook nerds, ballerinas and choir kids ruled the nominations for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday, as The Social Network and Black Swan emerged as leaders in the movie categories and Glee popped up all over the TV realm.

Both The Social Network (aka The Facebook Movie) and dancing drama Black Swan scored Golden Globe nominations for Best Picture, with stars from both movies landing acting nods. Jesse Eisenberg, who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, is nominated for Lead Actor while his on-screen frenemy (and Celebuzz crush) Andrew Garfield landed a nomination for Supporting Actor. Absent from the nominee list was Justin Timberlake, who was reportedly gunning for awards season love.

The men of The Social Network will face off against the ladies of Black Swan, as Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis got Golden Globe love for Lead and Supporting Actress respectively.

Newbies no more, the Glee kids will be singing a joyful tune after dominating the major TV categories. Diva Lea Michele nabbed a nomination for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Nerdy rapping clearly paid off for her on-screen teacher Matthew Morrison, who scored a nomination for Best Actor in a TV Series. Scene-stealers Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer (rightfully!) were recognized in the supporting actress and actor categories.

Worth noting are the super-hot contenders of the Best Actor in a Motion Picture- Drama category, which includes James Franco for 127 Hours and Ryan Gosling for Blue Valentine.

The Golden Globes – one of Hollywood’s most fascinatingly fun awards shows! – airs January 16 on NBC.
