Though San Francisco has officially made Helen Mirren the across-the-board Best Actress, it was nice to see Little Children as the best picture, stepping away from Clint Eastwood and Martin Scorsese. New Line tried to bury Little Children, but it looks like they're going to have to bring it back to life with all the awards it's been acquiring. And cheers to the surprise of Brick for best original screenplay. In other news, the Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning with little to no surprise. Some minor surprises include Will Smith (groan) for The Pursuit of Happyness (learn how to spell, fuckers), Maggie Gyllenhaal for Sherrybaby, and Emily Blunt, oh so lovely in My Summer of Love, for The Devil Wears Prada. And tell me someone else is pissed that Mel Gibson's Apocalypto and Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima are included in the best foreign-language category. The complete nominations can be found here. Some notable omissions though include Ryan Gosling and Shareeka Epps for Half Nelson (did they really nominate Will Smith in place of Gosling?) and Steve Carell (and really everyone else except for Toni Collette) for Little Miss Sunshine.
