AWARDS: Globe noms shock many; “Atonement” leads with 7 nominations

"Atonement", the british drama that hits theaters this weekend, and that has been almost completely ignored by the many critics’ groups thus far, swept its’ way into Oscar contention today, landing 7 Golden Globe nominations, more than any other film. "No Country For Old Men", "There Will Be Blood", and "Juno" also racked up multiple nominations.

Other favorites were left out in the cold – "Into the Wild", which just led the Critics’ Choice nominations earlier this week, got only musical nominations here, and two other comedies thought to be shoo-in’s for the usually eclectic Hollywood Foreign Press, "Superbad" and "Knocked Up" were completely shut out, as was critically acclaimed but so far ignored "Beowulf".

But the Globes are always controversial for both what they pick and what they don’t, and things just got a little more interesting…
