Golden Globes 2011 nominations: Johnny Depp does double duty
Johnny Depp had the rare distinction Tuesday of receiving two Golden Globe 2011 nominations -- in the same category. Taking two of the five lead actor in a comedy/musical movie slots, Depp was nominated for his work as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" as well as for his star turn with Angelina Jolie in the just released action movie "The Tourist."
Here's what the actor had to say in a statement:
“One nomination would, of course, be a great honor but two is simply astonishing. I am floored, truly, by the [Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.'s] kindness and generosity. I wish to thank them dearly, as well as all those many wonderful souls who made the films in question possible. My deepest gratitude and respect goes out to you all.”
