Golden Globe Nominations
Posted 12.13.07 by reelz
I'm back from covering the Globes, having escaped the hoopla and mad rush for interviews with presenters Ryan Reynolds, Quentin Tarantino and Hayden Panettiere.
Unlike the equally early a.m Oscar Nom ceremony (which I also covered last year), the Globes are right down to business. There's no cool graphics with titles flipping live behind the presenter. Nope, the Globes cover such a broad range of categories that they pretty much rattle them off as quickly as possibly. At the Oscars, there was pause for cheers, almost comparable to an NFL draft. The Globes make you pay attention because, as tired as I was, it took a few seconds for whichever nominee they just said to sink in.
So what happened? Well, the Coen Brothers continued their strong run this Awards season with No Country For Old Men scoring noms in the Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Director and Best Actor (Javier Bardem). Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd also scored some impressive noms for director Tim Burton, stars Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter as well as Best Picture in the Comedy or Musical category.
Sadly, no love for Superbad : (
