PR experts say critical pans of movie could make support for the nom potentially "embarrassing." The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. raised eyebrows this week by nominating the widely panned thriller The Tourist for best comedy and nominating stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in the comedy/musical acting categories. To skeptics, the choices appeared to be a particularly blatant play to line the red carpet with celebrities -- in this case, two of the world's biggest -- at the Golden Globes ceremony Jan. 16. Additionally, the movie was never marketed as a comedy; it was portrayed as a romantic thriller.

How divisive is the decision? At an industry party Wednesday night, a foreign journalist introduced herself to another guest as a member of the HFPA and then quickly blurted, "But I didn't vote for The Tourist!"
Jolie told the Associated Press that she laughed when she heard about her nomination as best actress in a comedy or musical. "It's the first time that I've been in the comedic category so it's new for me," she explained diplomatically.
And Jolie wasn't the only one amused. The reaction from reporters and publicists present when the nominations were announced at the Beverly Hilton was audible, too.
The awkward question now is whether Jolie should attend the ceremony -- with her partner, Brad Pitt, in tow, of course -- or just skip it. An unscientific survey of Hollywood PR experts has some tilting toward not attending.
"The movie gets a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes!" one says. "I think it's one of the most embarrassing things ever. I think you say, 'I'm on location, I can't be there.' It's too ridiculous." (By contrast, interestingly, the movie gets a 78% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes).
Says an awards campaign strategist: "I would say you shouldn't go. It's certainly going to embarrass [her] for a role that was eviscerated by the press."
