The Golden Globe nominations always have their quirks, and sometimes it seems they exist in their own private galaxy. This year's movie nominations, though, stuck close to expectations, and close to Earth: Interstellar, Christopher Nolan's high-pedigree, extragalactic space epic, was shut out save a nod for its score.
American Sniper, missing its aim:
There sure are some big names associated with the Christmas release American Sniper: Bradley Cooper stars as Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, and it's directed by none other than Clint Eastwood. But the film was shut out.
An award for Annie?:
She was nominated for a best-actress Oscar when she was only 9, for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild, and two years later Quvenzhane Wallis is an over-achieving 11-year-old, too: She scored a best-actress nod in the musical or comedy category for Annie, joining a slew of veterans like Julianne Moore, Helen Mirren, Amy Adams and Emily Blunt.
