2008 Golden Globe Awards Nominations


View the Hollywood Foreign Press Association 2008 Golden Globe Awards nominations.

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Frost/Nixon” and “Doubt” led the rather surprising 66th Annual Golden Globe Award nominations, grabbing five nominations a piece. “Button” and “Nixon” were among the best motion picture drama nominees, a category that also included “The Reader,” “Revolutionary Road” and “Slumdog Millionaire” but snubbed heavy favorites like “Milk” and “The Dark Knight.”

Shocking inclusions, on in the other hand, included an acting nod for Tom Cruise for his work on “Tropic Thunder.”
