The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which bestows the Golden Globes, is always full of surprises, and this year was no exception: Ron Howard‘s “Rush” was an unexpected addition to the best pictures lineup, and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” which did well in Wednesday's Screen Actors Guild nominations, was shut out.

The Golden Globes are chosen by the miniscule, 88-member foreign press group, as compared to the nearly 6,000 voters in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences who choose the Oscar winners.
