More Nominations And Awards

Hollywood Foreign Press Association Golden Globe Nominations

Best Motion Picture - Drama
The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button
The Reader
Revolutionary Road
Slumdog Millionaire

I'm a little bit surprised that Milk isn't among the nominees - but pleasantly surprised that The Reader is. We have four - count 'em, four! - movies opening on Christmas, including the first three listed above, and I don't know how I'm going to manage to see all of them - even if I do make it back to the theatre after church to watch The Reader. Here's to hoping some prints come in way early. Revolutionary Road, unfortunately, doesn't bow here until mid-January, although the plus side to that is that I may have time to re-read the novel before I see the movie.
