On December 15, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.

Just before Steven Spielberg took a chance on Jeremy Irvine to star in "War Horse," Jeremy Irvine was appearing in the chorus of the Royal Shakespeare Company, as a tree.

The film depicts a boy (played by Irvine) and his horse inexorably transformed by World War I.  Now that he's been anointed by the legendary director, Irvine's starring role promises to change his life as well.

Tom Hiddleston has fast become a fanboy (and girl) favorite for his layered portrayal of slithery sibling Loki in the summer hit "Thor," and his infamy will only grow when he reprises the role (as villain numero uno) in May's hotly anticipated superhero ensemble "The Avengers."
