‘Moulin,’ ‘Mind’ top Globe contender list

HBO earns most TV noms

HOLLYWOOD — The awards season kicked into high gear early Thursday morning as “A Beautiful Mind” and “Moulin Rouge” led nominations for the Golden Globes with six apiece including best picture nods and acting kudos for Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.

“A Beautiful Mind” was nominated for picture in the dramatic film category and “Moulin Rouge” had its best picture nod in the musical or comedy category.

Kidman, nominated for actress in a comedy or musical, also received an actress nomination for drama for her ghost story “The Others.” Billy Bob Thornton also received two acting nominations, for drama for “The Man Who Wasn’t There” and in musical or comedy for “Bandits.”

Robert Altman’s “Gosford Park” received five nominations including best musical or comedy and supporting actress nominations for Helen Mirren and Maggie Smith.

David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” had four nominations each including best dramatic picture.

Altman and Lynch were nominated for best director, along with Ron Howard for “A Beautiful Mind,” Peter Jackson for “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” Baz Luhrmann for “Moulin Rouge” and Steven Spielberg for “A.I. Artificial Intelligence.”

Nominees in 13 movie and 11 television categories for the 59th annual Golden Globes were announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The awards often serve as indicators for how movies will fare when Oscar nominations come out in February. Most years, one of the two best-picture winners at the Golden Globes goes on to win the top honor at the Oscars in March. The Globes include a category for best dramatic movie and another for best comedy or musical.

The other two dramatic best picture nominees were “In the Bedroom” and “The Man Who Wasn’t There.” The other musical or comedy best picture choices were “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” “Legally Blonde” and “Shrek.” Besides Crowe and Thornton, the dramatic actor nominees were Will Smith for “Ali,” Kevin Spacey for “The Shipping News” and Denzel Washington for “Training Day.”

Along with Kidman, the dramatic actress choices were Halle Berry for “Monster’s Ball,” Judi Dench for “Iris,” Sissy Spacek for “In the Bedroom” and Tilda Swinton for “The Deep End.”

Along with Kidman, musical or comedy best actress nominees were Thora Birch for “Ghost World,” Cate Blanchett for “Bandits,” Reese Witherspoon for “Legally Blonde” and Renee Zellweger for “Bridget Jones’s Diary.”

Besides McGregor and Thornton, the nominees for best actor in a musical or comedy were Gene Hackman in “The Royal Tenenbaums,” Hugh Jackman in “Kate & Leopold,” and John Cameron Mitchell for “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”

Supporting actress nominees were Cameron Diaz of “Vanilla Sky,” Marisa Tomei of “In The Bedroom” and Kate Winslet of “Iris.”

Supporting actor nominees were Jim Broadbent of “Iris,” Steve Buscemi of “Ghost World,” Hayden Christensen of “Life as a House,” Ben Kingsley of “Sexy Beast,” Jude Law of “A.I. Artificial Intelligence” and Jon Voight of “Ali.” Kingsley also was nominated as best actor in a TV movie or miniseries for “Anne Frank.”

Competing for best TV drama series will be Fox’s “24,” ABC’s “Alias,” CBS’ “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” HBO’s “Six Feet Under,” HBO’s “The Sopranos” and NBC’s “The West Wing.”

Nominees for best TV musical or comedy series were Fox’s “Ally McBeal,” NBC’s “Frasier,” NBC’s “Friends,” HBO’s “Sex and the City” and NBC’s “Will & Grace.”

HBO led the networks with 19 TV nominations, followed by NBC with 15 and ABC with 11.
