Golden Globe Awards Nominations Announced: Birdman Flies High

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Birdman continues its march towards some serious Oscar love with the announcement today of the Golden Globe Awards nominations. The film scored seven nominations including Best Picture, Comedy or Musical and a nod for its lead actor, Michael Keaton.

Birdman also got another nomination for Supporting Actress for Emma Stone, after she picked one up in the same category with yesterday’s reveal of the SAG nominations.

In a move that should thrill Jennifer Aniston on many levels, she scored a nomination for Best Actress for her work on Cake, while Angelina Jolie was snubbed for directing Unbroken. It’s an interesting situation there beyond the obvious gossip fodder… the Hollywood Foreign Press Association adores Jolie and it’s a total shock that she’s not on this list.

Also missing is Clint Eastwood in any form, including his film American Sniper.

The Golden Globes will be handed out January 11, 2015 and our hosts are the always awesome Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
