golden-globes-20111

Tis the season for some film awards. Today is the beginning of the movie awards season with movie studios gearing up to champion their best films of the year. The  Screen Actors Guild (SAG) announced their nominations this morning that had some surprise nominations (Daniel Bruhl and Barkhad Abdi) and the predictable frontrunners (Cate Blanchett and Chiwetel Ejifor). Tomorrow morning, another batch of nominations will be announced courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The Golden Globe nominations will be vast and somewhat different compared to the SAG nominations. Here are some of the films and actors that will likely score some nods tomorrow morning.
