Rings is King at the Golden Globes; gets 11 Oscar nods

by on Jan.26, 2004, under Movies

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King swepts its categories at the Golden Globes, winning Best Film Drama, Best Directory (Peter Jackson), Best Original Score and Best Song (“Into the West” performed by Annie Lennox). Those bodes well for the Oscars, for which nominations come out tomorrow. However, it will have to fight some Oscar traditions, which generally don’t favor sequels. Update 1/27: RotK took the lead with 11 nominations, but not for Cinematography, which the first one won in 2002, or any acting categories.
