67th Golden Globe Nominations

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.

“The Blind Side” – Review

The Blind Side - Image via Filmofilia.com

“The Blind Side” is based on the true story of NFL star, Michael Oher, of the Baltimore Ravens.   Once homeless and abandoned, Oher was taken in by the Tuohy family who helped Oher live to his full potential. Sandra Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy, the matriarch of the family, and in my opinion this was one of Bullock’s best performances to date. Her performance in this film is already getting some Oscar Buzz as well as a Golden Globe nomination. This role is really unlike anything Bullock has ever done in the past. Bullock has always been a great comedic actress, but this role really has shown another side to Bullock’s acting chops. Bullock’s portrayal of Mrs. Tuohy had such a great quiet strength that really transcended the screen which was really relatable. Watch the trailer here.
