Golden Globe nominations were just announced this morning in Hollywood and apparently the awards show missed having some big stars around last year because, well, there’s a bunch nominated for this year’s show. Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie – yeah, they’re all nominated for something. And how’s this for a shocker? The second highest grossing movie of all-time only got one nomination. What in the world is up with that? The Dark Knight got one nom, for Heath Ledger as a supporting actor in a drama. And that's it. Are you kidding me? Heath's father, Kim, issued a statement after the nomination was announced:
"We thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for honoring Heath's performance in The Dark Knight. This nomination is deeply appreciated and is not lost on those of us who continue to love and miss him. We are so proud our boy's work is being recognized in this way."
Check out the complete list of Golden Globe nominations here.

Tom Cruise will make a (triumphant?) return to The Today Show, 3 years after he and Matt Lauer got into a heated spat about psychiatry and medication. In the interview Tom called psychiatry “pseudo-sciene” and Matt Lauer “glib.” So he’s coming back to make things right in a LIVE interview on Monday. Don’t miss that.

Some sad news to pass along, Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin's older sister, Dakota Culkin, 29, was struck by a car when she stepped off the curb and in front of a moving vehicle on the west side of LA on Tuesday evening. She was taken to UCLA Hospital with massive head trauma and died from her injuries yesterday afternoon.
