GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS

Some surprises at those left off nomination list

December 15, 2006

And then there were the others ...

Several films, shows and performers who were considered sure things this award season -- and some that had even gained attention elsewhere -- failed to score a Golden Globe nomination Thursday:

MOVIES

Best picture

"Blood Diamond": nominated by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn., selected by the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.

"United 93": winner, New York Film Critics Circle award.

"Children of Men": The dark drama had generated plenty of early buzz for its star, Clive Owen, and director Alfonso Cuaron.

Best actor

Ryan Gosling: nominated for "Half Nelson" by both the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. and Film Independent's Spirit Award; winner, breakthrough performance actor, National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.

Best supporting actor

Djimon Hounsou: nominated for "Blood Diamond" by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn.; winner, National Board of Review.

Michael Sheen: winner, Los Angeles Film Critics Assn., for "The Queen."

Jackie Earle Haley: winner, New York Film Critics Circle, "Little Children."

Best director

Bill Condon: nominated, Broadcast Film Critics, for "Dreamgirls."

Todd Field: "Little Children" earned a Golden Globe nomination for best picture but not for its director.

TELEVISION

TV actors, actresses

Denis Leary: "Rescue Me" star nominated earlier this year for an Emmy for best actor in a drama.

Mariska Hargitay: won 2006 Golden Globe for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

Sandra Oh: "Grey's Anatomy" star nominated earlier this year for an Emmy Award for best supporting actress in a drama.

Other favorites out in the cold: FX's "The Shield" and "Nip/Tuck," Lauren Graham of "Gilmore Girls."
