Harrelson plugs new film during Globe nominations

Woody Harrelson used the early-morning Golden Globes nominations announcement to plug his new movie.

The actor was among the stars helping the Hollywood Foreign Press Association reveal nominees for the 69th annual Golden Globes on a worldwide telecast Thursday, and he appeared to include his yet-to-be-released police drama "Rampart" in the best picture category.

As he read the nominees for best dramatic film, Harrelson said, "`Rampart,'" followed by a long pause, "opens January 27, but I don't see it on the list here."

The nominees for best drama film are "The Descendants," "The Help," "Hugo," "The Ides of March," "Moneyball" and "War Horse." Harrelson, along with Gerard Butler, Sofia Vergara and Rashida Jones, made the announcement at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the Golden Globes will be presented Jan. 15.
