More Movie talk…
In light of the recent announcement of Golden Globe film nominees, I thought I’d take a few minutes to talk a little more about Revolutionary Road.
I can not tell you how much I love film season! I mean, the holidays are lovely and all, but when GG nominees come out, the entertainment industry comes fully alive. Awards show buzz starts streaming out and the next 6 (or so) weeks, leading up to the Oscars are thrilling for me. Last year, I really liked a few of the films the Academy chose to nominate for best picture, but this year I just feel like there is so much more to focus on.
Anyway, back to Revolutionary Road. (i just get all giddy and excited. I’m sorry…) It has received four AMAZING nominations for the Golden Globes, including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, and Best Director!
Here’s a clip:
and another one:
In response to the nominations, the films director Sam Mendes (American Beauty), made this statement- “We are all delighted and honored that the Hollywood Foreign Press recognized the film in such a generous way. This was a labor of love for all of us and to see it being received in such a positive way is very gratifying.”
And the truly remarkable Kate Winslet said- “I can’t believe it! I am incredibly grateful for these nominations. I am so honored and proud to be included this year, in the company of all these incredible women and alongside my on screen and off screen husbands! And to be a part of two of the best picture nominees! I am very very happy today!”
I am just really excited…
