 Yes, it's that time of the year again! The nominations for the 2011 Golden Globes have been announced and as usual, there are some clear favourites and one or two surprises as well. In the movie categories, Tom Hooper's drama, King's Speech, has earned seven nominations including 'Best Film (Drama)' and
acting nods for stars Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter.

 Not far behind we find one of the movies of the year, David Fincher's The Social Network, and David O. Russell's The Fighter with six nominations each. Black Swan and Inception are also nominated in the Best Film (Drama) category.

 In the running for best acting, Johnny Depp is a clear favourite with not one, but two nominations for both Alice In Wonderland and The Tourist. Pair Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams have also earned nominations for Blue Valentine.

 As far as Television is concerned, Fox's Glee is the leader of the pack with a total of five nominations including 'Best Comedy Series', 'Best Actor in a Television Comedy Series' for Matthew Morrison (Will Schuester) and 'Best Actress in a Television Comedy Series' for Lea Michele (Rachel Berry).

 There has been some pleasant surprises such as AMC's hit, The Walking Dead, which has been nominated in the Best Drama Series category.

The power of cable was showcased being HBO the most-nominated network overall, with a total of 12 nominations. Showtime came in second with eight nominations.
