By Andrew Moran     Dec 15, 2011 in Entertainment
Beverly Hills - The 69th Golden Globe Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2012. The nominees were announced early Thursday morning and critically acclaimed silent picture, "The Artist," is leading the nominations.
It was reported last month that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) chose comedian Ricky Gervais to host the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards in January. Although he caused quite a stir last year, Gervais is set to roast the major Hollywood celebrities. He has already warned of pedophile and Nazi jokes.
On Thursday, the HFPA selected its nominees to the show that leads up to the Academy Awards. The Golden Globes honor the best in motion picture and television. The silent motion picture “The Artist,” which looks at an actor, who can’t transition to the world of talkies, garnered six nominations.
George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt were all nominated for best actor in a drama. Meanwhile, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Rooney Mara, Meryl Streep and Tilda Swinton were nominated for their respective dramatic roles.
