Five was the magic number at this morning’s Golden Globes nominations: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Doubt, and Frost/Nixon each received five nods to lead the movie field, while HBO’s In Treatment took five nominations, to top the TV side. Benjamin Button (pictured) and Frost/Nixon join The Reader, Revolutionary Road, and Slumdog Millionaire in the best motion picture drama race. Doubt made its mark in the acting categories with nods for leads Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep (also nominated in the comedy category for Mamma Mia!), as well as supporting actresses Amy Adams and Viola Davis. In Treatment was named in the cable-heavy best drama series category, alongside last year’s winner, AMC’s Mad Men, Showtime’s Dexter, HBO’s True Blood, and Fox’s House.

While our experts prepare their analysis — update: here’s Dave Karger’s take on the movie side, and Ken Tucker’s commentary on TV — check out the list of major categories below, which include those nominees you expected (Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight, Sean Penn for Milk) and those that made the press in the Beverly Hilton Hotel giggle (James Franco for The Pineapple Express, Tom Cruise for Tropic Thunder). Here’s the link to our full list of movie and TV nominees. As always, hit us with your snubs list.
