A delusional ballerina, a self-amputee adventurer and a stuttering future King of England – as played by Natalie Portman, James Franco and Colin Firth in Black Swan, 127 Hours and The King's Speech – dotted the array of this year's Golden Globe-nominated performances, announced early Tuesday morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
In all, The King's Speech garnered the most nods, seven, with The Fighter and The Social Network following with six each.
Johnny Depp received two nominations, for his comedic roles in Tim Burton's summer blockbuster Alice in Wonderland and in this past weekend's box-office disappointment, The Tourist, which also brought a nod to costar Angelina Jolie.
Both those movies are in the running as Best Comedy or Musical Film (though this year there was a noticeable absence of song-and-dance movies). The other nominees are Burlesque, The Kids Are All Right and Red.
Those nominated in the Dramatic Movie category are Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The King's Speech and Social Network.
