Think the Golden Globes missed having movie stars around last year?
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 comprise the Best Motion Picture, Drama field.
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 got some love for Revolutionary Road—he's up for lead actor in a 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 Doubt and Frost/Nixon for the most film nominations—five. Streep pulled a two-fer, with twin Best Actress noms in both the drama (Doubt) and comedy/musical (Mamma Mia!) races. Also doubling up, were Winslet (Best Actress, Drama for Revolutionary Road and Supporting Actress for The Reader) and Tom Wilkinson (Best Actor in a TV Miniseries/Movie for Recount and Supporting Actor in TV for John Adams).
One other category worth spotlighting is Best Song, which pits the Cyrus-penned "I Thought I Lost You" from Bolt against tunes from Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, Peter Gabriel and, yes, Clint Eastwood. (Eastwood is also up for Best Original Score for Changeling, but not, curiously, for his directing.)
On the TV side, Tina Fey's very good year continued today with three Golden Globe nominations for 30 Rock. Entourage matched that total, the most of any TV comedy series.
In Treatment scored five nods, tops for a TV drama series. It tied the HBO movie Recount for the most overall nominations.
30 Rock and Entourage will compete for Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical against Californication, The Office and Weeds.
In Treatment will vie for Best TV Series, Drama opposite Dexter, House, Mad Men and True Blood.
Fey also notched an acting nomination, as did her costar, Alec Baldwin.
The 66th Annual Golden Globes are to be presented by stars, and to stars—unlike last year's strike-struck affair—on Jan. 11.
