The A-plus-listers are all among the nominees for the 66th Annual Golden Globes, as announced this morning.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, Revolutionary Road and Slumdog Millionaire will compete for Best Motion Picture, Drama.
Burn After Reading, Happy-Go-Lucky, In Bruges, Mamma Mia! and Vicky Cristina Barcelona are up for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.
Cruise scored a Supporting Actor nomination for his unbilled, unhinged Tropic Thunder cameo. Robert Downey Jr. is up in the same category for the same film.
DiCaprio finally got some awards-show love for the Mad Men-period drama Revolutionary Road—he's up for lead actor in a drama. His costar (and former Titanic shipmate) Kate Winslet was nominated in the lead actress category. Winslet's also nominated as a supporting actress for The Reader, the younger-man-older-woman-plus-Nazis drama.
Pitt and Jolie are up in the lead drama categories for the usual, Benjamin Button and Changeling, respectively.
Pitt's Benjamin Button tied with Frost/Nixon and Doubt, the 1960s-set Catholic priest sex scandal drama, with the most film nominations, five.
Other famous faces lauded with nominations by the famously star-friendly Globes include:
Befitting a show run by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press, the Globes is especially taken by stars hailing from Europe, as the nominations for the following help demonstrate:

The 66th Annual Golden Globes are to be presented by the stars, and to the stars—unlike last year's strike-stricken affair—on Jan. 11.
