The Golden Globes were announced at 5AM PST this morning (why do they do these things at the crack of dawn, again?), and, well, are you as excited as I am? Jessica Biel, Rosario Dawson and Matthew Perry (why are the stars who announce the noms always so random?) joined Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Philip Berk and told us who was nominated in each category. Of course, the Globes are important because they usually (not always) foreshadow the Oscars. It's also a unique awards ceremony because they honor the year's best in both film and television -- however, here at Cinematical we're only concerned with the film nominations. Those are you interested in the television side are welcome to head on over to our sister site, TV Squad, for all that info.

As expected, Jennifer Hudson took home a nod for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the upcoming Dreamgirls. The big surprises: Leonardo DiCaprio is competing against himself in the Best Actor category -- both for The Departed and Blood Diamond. Neither 9/11-related film was nominated at all. Clint Eastwood will also be competing against himself in the Best Director category for both of his Iwo Jima-related films (Letters and Flags). Sacha Baron Cohen walked away with two nods, Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy for Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, as well as Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. Emily Blunt gets a nod for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Devil Wears Prada. Oh, and how about Maggie Gyllenhaal -- she took a nod in the Best Actress category for Sherrybaby. The biggest let down (for me, at least) was the fact that Little Miss Sunshine was not nominated for Best Screenplay. That's a bummer. Does that mean The Queen is our official frontrunner?

You can watch the Golden Globes ceremony live when it airs on NBC this January 15. What do you think about the nominations?

A full list of Golden Globe nominations (film only) is waiting for you after the jump.
