Look at Keira. Once more nominated for one of the most prestigious acting awards on Santa’s green earth. This time it’s a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama (as against Best Actress in a Housecoat) for her part in Atonement. And if the GGs are a sign of which are the big Oscar films then Atonement is a HUGE Oscar film. Hooray and everything ’cause it was good everyone.
Here’s who else got a mensh…
OK, so up against Keira in the B.A.I.A.D. categ. are Cate Blanchett for her role as Queen Elizabeth I in Elizabeth: On Golden Pond (she’s also got a supporting actress nom for playing Bob Dylan in that I’m Not There thing); Jodie Foster, Angelina Jolie and Julie Christie (in films we don’t really care about).
Actors are James McAvoy in – yay! – Atonement, Viggo Mortensen – yay! – in Eastern Promises, (mostly for the bit where he rolls around naked in a sauna), Daniel Day Lewis, George Clooney and Denzel Washington for various fairly boring films.
Best dramas are Atonement, Eastern Promises, American Gangster and some stuff we’ve not heard of, while best comedies/musicals are Hairspray, Sweeney Todd, Charlie Wilson’s War (Tom Hanks + Julia Roberts = snore on), Beatles thing Across the Universe, and Juno (which we really liked).
