This year's Golden Globes lineup for Best Actor in a Drama was a real treat, with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Fassbender all in the running. But after Tuesday's Academy Award nominations announcement, only two out of the five actors will be up for a golden statue at the 2012 Oscars.
Clooney was nominated for his role in "The Descendants" and Pitt picked up a nomination for "Moneyball," joining Demian Bichir, ("A Better Life"), Jean Dujardin ("The Artist") and Gary Oldman ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy").
Many fans rooting for a Golden Globes redo were sorely disappointed Tuesday after learning DiCaprio, Gosling and Fassbender will not be up for an Oscar on Feb. 26.
