The multinational ensemble drama Babel led Golden Globe contenders Thursday with seven nominations, including best dramatic picture and acting honors for Brad Pitt, Adriana Garaza, and Rinko Kikuchi. Mel Gibson's bloody epic Apocalypto and Clint Eastwood's World War II saga Letters From Iwo Jima were nominated for foreign-language Golden Globes, potentially boosting their prospects for the upcoming Academy Awards. Under Globe rules Apocalypto and Letters From Iwo Jima were eligible only in the foreign-language category, not the best picture category. Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg of The Departed, Cate Blanchett for Notes on a Scandal, and Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy of Dreamgirls were among supporting actor nominees. The musical penguin tale Happy Feet, the talking-autos comedy Cars, and the spooky children's flick Monster House were nominated for best animated film of 2006. Also nominated for best dramatic picture: the Robert Kennedy story Bobby, the mob tale The Departed, the suburban drama Little Children, and the royalty-in-crisis The Queen. Film and TV nominees for the 64th annual Globes were announced in a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
