Forget about holidays and end-of-year chaos. It's awards season, and as the critics make their best-of picks, it's finally time to see which films and players have wowed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the 68th Annual Golden Globes Awards nominations (the ceremony will be held on Sunday, January 16, 2011). Last year it was a battle of the exes as the flash and circumstance of James Cameron's 'Avatar' battled the indie engine that could -- Kathryn Bigelow's 'The Hurt Locker.'

As we head into 2011, Blair Underwood, Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes read off the nominees, and HFPA really likes 'The King's Speech', which nabbed 7 nominations, while 'The Fighter' and 'The Social Network' each took home six nominations. And it's no surprise that David Fincher got a directorical nomination, as 'Network' has been taking the Hollywood Best-Of world by storm. John Cameron Mitchell ('Rabbit Hole'), unfortunately, was left out of a ring that also includes Tom Hooper, Christopher Nolan, Darren Aronofsky and David O. Russell. Biggest surprise: The Coen Bros. 'True Grit' walked away with not one nomination. (See some of the male nominees in Esquire.)

But Nicole Kidman earned a nod for her performance in 'Rabbit Hole,' alongside the expected pick, Natalie Portman for 'Black Swan.' The Best Actors, meanwhile, included Ryan Gosling, Colin Firth and the increasing star power of Jesse Eisenberg.

'The Kids Are All Right' led the Best Actress, Comedy or Musical with nods for both Annette Benning and Julianne Moore. Johnny Depp, meanwhile, won not one, but two nods for both 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'The Tourist.' Mila Kunis has come a long way since her '70s Show' days, earning a supporting nomination for 'Black Swan.'

In the land of no surprises, 'Toy Story 3' and 'How to Train Your Dragon' made the cut for Best Animated Feature, and Javier Bardem's 'Biutiful' led the Best Foreign Language Feature. Tunes from 'Burlesque,' 'Tangled' and 'Country Strong' are no surprises in the Best Music category.

Peruse the full list of nominees after the jump and let us know (full list of both film and TV nominations can be found at Moviefone): Did the Powers Behind the Globes get it right?
