Awards Watch: Chicago Critics and Golden Globes Announce

The Chicago Film Critics revealed their picks today, going against the grain in a couple of places. Today also saw the announcement of the Golden Globe nominees, with Atonement leading the pack and yet another demonstration of why the "Musical or Comedy" categories are ill-conceived. To wit, the nominees for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy:

Amy Adams (Enchanted)
Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray)
Helena Bonham-Carter (Sweeney Todd)
Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose)
Ellen Page (Juno)

... one of these things is not like the others.
