The Coen brothers, Ethan and Joel, are feeling the snub from the Golden Globes Tuesday. The much-anticipated remake of the classic novel and film, True Grit, came away from the nomination ceremony empty-handed.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association passed on True Grit in favor of The King's Speech, The Social Network, Black Swan, The Fighter and Inception, all nominated for best motion picture, drama.

The Tourist's Johnny Depp and The Fighter's Mark Wahlberg were nominated for Best Actor over True Grit stars Jeff Bridges, who won last year's Best Actor Oscar, and Matt Damon.

The Coen brothers adapted Arkansas native Charles Portis' novel and tried to stay true to its original form in their remake of True Grit. The movie opens Christmas Day.

Leading the Golden Globe film nominations was The King's Speech, starring Colin Firth as a stuttering King George VI, with seven nominations. The Social Network, based on the founding of Facebook, and The Fighter both followed with six nominations.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be presented live January 16 at 7 p.m. CST on NBC (KARK Ch. 4 in Little Rock).
