The Golden Globes will, once again, be a crazy, star-studded event this year, as some of Hollywood's biggest big-wigs have been nominated.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie both scored Globe nods; Angie for Best Actress in Changeling and her man for Best Actor in his newest flick, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Angie's going up against Anne Hathaway for her role in Rachel Getting Married and, though I haven't seen either flick, I have to pull for Anne because she drinks and does karaoke. Just like me.
As expected, the dearly-departed Heath Ledger was recognized for his wickedly wonderful portrayal of the Joker in this summer's The Dark Knight. His family released a statement to People.com after hearing the news:
"We thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for honoring Heath's performance in The Dark Knight. This nomination is deeply appreciated and is not lost on those of us who continue to love and miss him. We are so proud our boy's work is being recognized in this way."
Get your tissues ready for when Heath's name is called on Jan. 11. It's going to be tough to watch.
