2011 Golden Globe Nominations for Best Picture

The night of Sunday, January 16, 2011, the stars of Hollywood will assemble for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards. The major award show will honor the brightest and best achievements for the past year in movies and television.

It could be a big night for several actors and specific shows/movies. One category that many people will be particularly interested in will be the Best Picture for Drama. The contenders for this award include "The Social Network" which recently won the Critics Choice Award. The movie tells the tale of Facebook's creation and it's young CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield co-star in the film which only was second in ratings to "Toy Story 3" from critics in 2010.

Competing with "Social Network" will be "The Fighter" which features Mark Wahlberg as boxer 'Irish' Micky Ward. Christian Bale recently won a Critics Choice Award for this film as the crack addict brother/trainer of Micky, named Dicky. Bale may be taking home the Globe as well.

News: Sofia Vergara nothing fits her for Golden Globes?!

Natalie Portman also won an award for her dark performance in "Black Swan" at Critics Choice 2011. Portman may repeat with a win Sunday night, and hopes that "Black Swan" can become the "Golden Swan" by winning best picture.

Also in competition for this category are "The King's Speech" starring Colin Firth and "Inception" starring Leo DiCaprio. "Inception" scored big at the box office, but has received mix reviews from critics. The films is considered an epic sci-fi/action/drama masterpiece which was directed by Christopher Nolan of "Dark Knight" fame. "King's Speech" is currently in rotation at theaters along with most of the other nominees. The expectation though is that the story of Facebook will get the "Like" tonight when it comes to Best Picture of 2010.

Golden Globe Awards 2011 will start at 8PM EST on NBC in hi-definition!
