Hollywood is a-tingle this morning, and not because of the impending arrival of Christmas. Awards season is on the horizon, and this morning brought with the dawn the announcement of the nominees for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Honoring the best in film and television, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's awards are considered a strong, though not always accurate, indicator of the ensuing Oscar wins.

Some interesting notes from this year's noms: Johnny Depp is up against himself for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical for his roles in "Alice in Wonderland," and "The Tourist." "Burlesque" could win a statuette for Best Film, Comedy or Musical...yes, an actual award. Movies making a strong showing in the nominations include "Black Swan," "The Social Network," and "The King's Speech." Except at look at the TV noms later today from our TV Junkie columnist.

The 68th Annual Golden Globes will air live coast-to-coast on January 16, 2011 on NBC. Check out a complete list of all nominees:
