Congratulations to Mickey Rourke for getting his first Golden Globe nomination this morning for his role in The Wrestler. While the nomination isn't a surprise at all, I was thrilled when I saw his name on the list a bit ago. It is amazing though and quite appalling that he has never received a nomination before, but I am glad that it is happening for Micky now. A few other nominations I am happy with are the several that went to Woody Allen's Vicky Christina Barcelona and the nominations for James Franco in Pineapple Express and the couple granted to Tropic Thunder were surprising and welcome.
