American Beauty, the brilliantly noirish and hilarious debut from Brit debut director Sam Mendes has earned a wealth of Golden Globe nominations - widely held to be the indicator that sets the pace for the Oscars.** Kevin Spacey** is up for Best Actor, Annette Bening for Best Actress while the flick itself is up for Best Motion Picture.

The Globes are to be held in LA on January 23, where Beauty looks like being hotly pursued by The Insider, the story of a tobacco industry mogul who lift the lid on his own business. It also has a Best Pic nomination, plus a Best Actor nomination for its star, Russell Crowe.
