Golden Globes 2012 Nominations Shortlist

Infamous motormouth Ricky Gervais looks like he'll be presiding over a Golden Globes ceremony dominated by a silent film next year, with six-times nominated The Artist leading the pack.

Coming up close behind are George Clooney's The Descendants and The Help with five, with a Hugo, War Horse and Moneyball snapping at their heels.

Yesterday we saw the Screen Actors' Guild reveal their list, which means this week can herald only one thing: the beginning of the beginning of 2012's award season. Heaven help us, it's going to be a big one and no mistake.

For lots more on the Golden Globes, check out their website, where you can also see who's got nods for what in the TV department too.
