Satellite Nominations Out: 'Milk', 'Millionaire', Streep Ahead
Awards season is already upon us, and at this point we’re having an idea as to who could possibly receive the most critical acclaim from the films released this year.  For one, the nominees for the 13th Satellite Awards have been released.  The International Press Academy will be honoring this year’s best performances in film and television on ceremonies in December 14.

Among the forerunners are the films Slumdog Millionaire and Milk, which each earned six nominations, including Best Drama Picture.  Meryl Streep grabbed two acting nominations: one for Mamma Mia! and another for Doubt.  Other notable nominees are Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which snagged three; and the late Heath Ledger, who took his first posthumous acting nomination for his take on The Dark Knight.  After the jump, (most, at least, of) the nominees for this year’s Satellites.
