The 2009 Golden Globe Nominations were revealed today, December 15, 2009, and the awards ceremony will air on January 17, 2010 and will be hosted by Golden Globe winner Ricky Gervais. There are a few freshman nominees which is very exciting and familiar nominees. Starting off with the Movie nominations. Avatar will be released in theaters on December 18, 2009, and if it didn’t look amazing enough – I’m sure a Golden Globe nomination for Best Drama would not hurt to boost some box office numbers. Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon were nominated for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for Invictus. They were truly the shining stars in that film, so the nominations are much deserved. Matt Damon is also nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy for The Informant!. Between Invictus and The Informant!, I think I enjoyed Damon’s performance in The Informant! more. A huge thumbs up from me for Sandra Bullock for being a dual nominee for Best Actress in a Drama for The Blind Side and Best Actress in a Comedy for The Proposal. Also special kudos to (500) Days of Summer for getting a Best Picture – Comedy nomination.
On to the Television nominations. Fox’s freshman hit Glee has four nominations including Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy). Not too shabby for its first year out of the gates. ABC’s freshman comedy Modern Family was also nominated for Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy). The question is, can a freshman comedy beat 30 Rock which won the Golden Globe for Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy) last year? In terms of Television Nomination snubs, I am surprised that there wasn’t any Grey’s Anatomy love. I would’ve thought that Chandra Wilson and/or Sandra Oh would’ve received an acting nomination.

It only took about 5 seasons, but it looks like it will finally happen. No, I’m not talking about Booth and Brennan finally getting together (although I hope that will happen soon) – I’m talking about Zooey Deschanel stopping by for a guest spot. According to Entertainment Weekly, Z.Deschanel may guest star on an episode of “Bones” this December. Here is an excerpt from the article from EW:
“We’ve been looking for an opportunity to get the Deschanel girls together,” notes exec producer Hart Hanson, “but Zooey’s rockin’ career kept getting in the way.”
How exciting! For now, you can catch Zooey Deschanel in “(500) Days of Summer”, which was awesome. You can read my review of “(500) Days of Summer” here and at the same time you can watch a Behind-the-Scenes featurette on the movie.
525,600 minutes – how do you measure a year in the life? — Jonathan Larson
As the sound of the narrator’s voice resonated through the theater, the opening line was clearly stated: “This is NOT a love story”. “(500) Days of Summer” is a movie about love found, love lost, and how to deal. It really delves into the question – what if this isn’t my happily ever after? The movie really excels in delivering its message – “life doesn’t always turn out the way you plan it”. It’s not about how you get from Point A to Point B, but it’s all about the journey and the moments that occur in between.

July is almost upon us, so what potential blockbusters are waiting in the wings? Two words: Harry Potter. I cannot wait to see this film! The trailers and clips look amazing and the book is awesome! Potter fans unite! If you haven’t read the books, or have yet to see any of the movies…you need to see this film! “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is one of the best books of the Harry Potter series and the film is going to be epic (if done right).
Other films that will challenge for top of the box office, in my opinion, will include “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs”, “Bruno” starring Sasha Baron Cohen (“Borat”), and “Public Enemies” starring Johnny Depp (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (“La vie en rose”). There are a few comedies and romantic comedies to look out for including “I Hate Valentine’s Day” which reunites the stars of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”. Nia Vardalos has also written and directed this film, so I am intrigued. Heroes’ star Hayden Panettiere is Beth Cooper in the book to movie adaptation of “I Love You, Beth Cooper” by Larry Doyle (“The Simpsons”). Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”）and Gerard Butler (“300”) pair up on screen for “The Ugly Truth”, which looks like a cross between “Someone Like You” meets “Broadcast News”. Judd Apatow’s latest film, “Funny People”, starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogan will be in theaters at the end of the month which looks to be both funny and possibly a tear jerker. What kind of summer would it be if there wasn’t an animated comedic cartoon by Disney? Disney’s “G-Force” in 3D will be premiering later in the month.
Two movies of note are “In the Loop” and “(500) Days of Summer”. Both movies were official selections at the Sundance Film Festival this year. “In the Loop” looks hilarious and “(500) Days of Summer” looks really cute and it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“3rd Rock from the Sun”) and Zooey Deschanel (“Yes Man”).
