Golden Globe nominees

Here's the list of nominees for the 63rd annual Golden Globe awards, courtesy of Oscarwatch. Just a few surprises: Maria Bello for Best Actress, not Supporting; no Gong Li or Diane Keaton in the Supporting race; and no Munich for Best Motion Picture-Drama (instead there's Match Point). My prediction scores and some notes are to be seen after each category.

MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
"Brokeback Mountain"
"The Constant Gardener"
"Good Night, and Good Luck"
"A History of Violence"
"Match Point"
Score: 2/5. Where's Munich?

ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
Maria Bello, "A History of Violence"
Felicity Huffman, "Transamerica"
Gwyneth Paltrow, "Proof"
Charlize Theron, "North Country"
Ziyi Zhang, "Memoirs of a Geisha"
Score: 3/5. I mistakenly placed Huffman in the Comedy/Musical category. Joan Allen failed to get the boost she needed.

ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE - DRAMA
Russell Crowe, "Cinderella Man"
Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Capote"
Terrence Howard, "Hustle & Flow"
Heath Ledger, "Brokeback Mountain"
David Strathairn, "Good Night, and Good Luck"
Score: 4/5. With Eric Bana missing, Munich just isn't the HFPA's cup of tea.

MOTION PICTURE - MUSICAL OR COMEDY
"Mrs. Henderson Presents"
"Pride & Prejudice"
"The Producers"
"The Squid and the Whale"
"Walk the Line"
Score: 4/5.

ACTRESS IN A MOTION PICTURE - MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Judi Dench, "Mrs. Henderson Presents"
Keira Knightly, "Pride & Prejudice"
Laura Linney, "The Squid and the Whale"
Sarah Jessica Parker, "The Family Stone"
Reese Witherspoon, "Walk the Line"
Score: 4/5.

ACTOR IN A MOTION PICTURE - MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Pierce Brosnan, "The Matador"
Jeff Daniels, "The Squid and the Whale"
Johnny Depp, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"
Nathan Lane, "The Producers"
Cillian Murphy, "Breakfast on Pluto"
Joaquin Phoenix, "Walk the Line"
Score: 4/5(6). Missed out on Depp and Brosnan in favor of Murray.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
"Kung Fu Hustle" (China)
"Master of the Crimson Armor" aka "The Promise" (China)
"Merry Christmas (Joyeux Noel)" (France)
"Paradise Now" (Palenstine)
"Tsotsi" (South Africa)
Score: NA.

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
Scarlett Johansson, "Match Point"
Shirley MacLaine, "In Her Shoes"
Frances McDormand, "North Country"
Rachel Weisz, "The Constant Gardener"
Michelle Williams, "Brokeback Mountain"
Score: a dismal 1/5. Got only Scarlett right. I was thinking they'd go for Streep (over Williams) as they usually do. Where's Gong Li?!

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
George Clooney, "Syriana"
Matt Dillon, "Crash"
Will Ferrell, "The Producers"
Paul Giamatti, "Cinderella Man"
Bob Hoskins, "Mrs. Henderson Presents"
Score: 3/5. Geoffrey Rush, like costar Bana, missing. Surprise nom for Ferrell.

DIRECTOR - MOTION PICTURE
Woody Allen, "Match Point"
George Clooney, "Good Night, and Good Luck"
Peter Jackson, "King Kong"
Ang Lee, "Brokeback Mountain"
Fernando Meirelles, "The Constant Gardener"
Steven Spielberg, "Munich"
Score: 4/5(6).
