The Tourist Gets an Odd Nomination for Golden Globes

by at . Comments

The 68th Annual Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and there are several films we expected to see in the running for the big awards, like Black Swan and The Social Network, and even films we hoped would get recognition, like Inception. But there's one that just doesn't quite fit...

The Tourist Poster

Apparently the Golden Globes have classified the Angelina Jolie / Johnny Depp romantic thriller The Tourist as a Musical or Comedy and have nominated it for Best Picture in that category. Either someone over at the nomination committee has a wicked sense of humor, or everything we know about The Tourist was a lie, because the film, and its meager opening at the box office this past weekend, wasn't very funny. Sure, there's a romantic comedy in there somewhere, but is it Best Picture material? We don't think so.

Either way, hit the jump to check out the rest of the nominations, the awards for which will be presented on Sunday, January 16th starting at 5pm on NBC.
