Golden Globes: Nominations are out.  See them here.  Homegrown talent Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman and Naomi Watts are up for awards and Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is the favourite with seven nominations.  Jackman has also claimed his star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood just an hour or so ago. It’s obviously a good year to be Hugh.
