Golden Globe Noms: Who is the biggest surprise?

Nominees Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp in the critically panned film, Nominees Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp in the critically panned film,
This morning marked the real start of the Oscar race. The announcement of the Golden Globe nominees is the tip off for potential Academy Award contenders. It's also an opportunity to bring the biggest names in the business together for a ratings bonanza. That may be one reason this year's Golden Globe's list is chock full of A-Listers. Already critics are crying foul over Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp's nominations for the panned film "The Tourist". Could it be a ploy for their attendance at the January 16 televised event or an earnest nod to their misunderstood performances? Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal are also garnering mutters for landing on a line-up alongside more acclaimed performers. (According to Yahoo voters at OMG, Annette Bening and Depp are the shoe-ins in their categories.) I'm personally surprised-slash-disapointed to see Tracy Morgan didn't get nominated for Best Supporting Actor on "30 Rock." This was his year!

Here's the entire list of nominees. Who are you most to surprised to see...or not to see on the roster?
