Downton Abbey scored 4 Golden Globe Awards Nominations!

The 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards Nominations has been announced this morning and there were more snubs than nods. Shocking! Not! (LOL!) Interesting no Best Actress/Supporting Actress nods for Keira Knightley on A Dangerous Method, Carey Mulligan for either Drive or Shame, and Judi Dench for J. Edgar or My Week With Marilyn, but their frequent co-stars did get nominations such as Michael Fassbender for Best Actor in Shame (but not in Jane Eyre or A Dangerous Method? Hmm...), Viggo Mortensen for Best Supporting Actor in A Dangerous Method, Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Actor in J.Edgar, and Michelle Williams and Kenneth Branagh for My Week With Marilyn.

Now, for the television nominations, Downton Abbey at least received 4 nominations: Best TV or Miniseries, Best Actress in a TV or Miniseries (Elizabeth McGovern), Best Actor in a TV or Miniseries (Hugh Bonneville), and Best Supporting Actress in a TV or Miniseries (Dame Maggie Smith). Congrats to DA cast and crew!!!

Plus Golden Globe Reactions (via Awards Daily)

“I was very pleased to learn that my ‘Sigmund Freud’ was nominated today to be part of the Golden Globes ceremony. It would have made me even happier if our director, David Cronenberg, and the remarkable performance by Keira Knightley also had been invited to the party, but I will be extremely proud to represent “A DANGEROUS METHOD”. Fortunately our fine ‘Carl Jung’, Michael Fassbender, was nominated for his work in “Shame”. David made a risky choice when he cast me to play Dr. Freud, and I’m glad that his instincts have paid off in the eyes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.” – Viggo Mortensen

“To be recognised for portraying one of the greatest actors of our time is truly an honour, and I am incredibly thankful to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for their continued support of our film. Working alongside Michelle was an extremely rewarding experience, and I’m thrilled that both she and our excellent team of filmmakers have also been recognised for their incredible work. I feel very blessed to be nominated for a role that is so close to my heart.” KENNETH BRANAGH, My Week With Marilyn, Best Supporting Actor Nominee
