The D is no longer silent; Django joins awards race with Golden Globe noms

The D is no longer silent; Django joins awards race with Golden Globe noms

After getting snubbed by other awards-giving bodies, Quentin Tarantino's bombastic and bloody slave redemption action flick Django Unchained got multiple Golden Globe noms, including kudos not only for its writer and director but for its masterful supporting cast in the form of a despicable Leonardo DiCaprio, finally getting to flex his bad-guy muscles to surprising effect, and the delightfully clever Christoph Waltz as a dentist-cum-bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz.

Pretty girls Megan Fox and Jessica Alba were up early alongside funny guy Ed Helms, who brought some welcome humour to the proceedings with his correct pronunciation of Les Miserables - we're not counting Fox's dreadful version of Anna Karenina as a joke - and helped to announce the nominees for the 70th annual proceedings that typically serve as a crystal ball for who will be getting Oscar love.

Perhaps the most surprising among the morning's announcements were the late-in-the-game nominations for both Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt's work in TIFF title Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which didn't make much of a splash with critics or at the box office, and retiree comedy Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which elbowed its way into the Best Motion Picture, Comedy race. And no one can overlook Meryl Streep who managed a nom for her work alongside Tommy Lee Jones, who is up for Lincoln, in Hope Springs.

The Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air January 13, 2013. Get all the latest awards stories, news and views here.
