The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its Golden Globe nominations this morning in Beverly Hills, California and several Latinos made the list!
As expected, Sofia Vergara was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her hilarious work on ABC's Emmy-winning comedy, Modern Family. Her fellow nominees in the category include Hope Davis (The Special Relationship), Jane Lynch (Glee), Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire) and Julia Stiles (Dexter). This is Sofia's first Golden Globe nomination (earlier this year, she earned her first Emmy nomination for her work on the hit show). Modern Family was also nominated for Best Comedy.
Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum) earned a nomination for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie for his work in the critically acclaimed film Carlos, the story of Venezuelan revolutionary Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, aka Carlos the Jackal. Carlos was also nominated for Best Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie. Ramirez's fellow nominees in the category include Hollywood A-listers Al Pacino (You Don't Know Jack) and Dennis Quaid (The Special Relationship).
Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest film, Biutiful also received a nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, but the film's star, Javier Bardem, was overlooked for Best Actor. The most shocking announcement was the nomination of Christina Aguilera's first feature film, Burlesque in the Best Picture, Comedy or Musical category.
The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be telecast live on Sunday, Jan. 16, 2011 on NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
