The official 2013 Golden Globe nominees
As you reach out to put yet another golden bauble onto your Christmas tree, the likes of Judi Dench, Hugh Jackman and Joaquin Phoenix look for a more permanent addition to their household decor this January. Yes, it’s that time once again, folks – the announcement of Golden Globe nominations! With the Golden Globe Awards celebrating its 70th year, it’s set to be a glittering night all round.
With such a spectacularly mixed bunch, it is so much better. For not only are there the familiar faces that are universally recognised (Meryl Streep, Leo DiCaprio et al), but there are also some fantastic quintessentially British additions to the internationally acclaimed list of nominations. And you can’t get more British than Mr Sherlock Holmes himself – Benedict Cumberbatch, nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Sherlock.
Downtown Abbey also holds the hope of the nation in its palm with the ITV series nominated for Best Television Series – Drama; and with Michelle Dockery for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series and Dame Maggie Smith also nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role In a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.
There are also some Golden nods to some phenomenal foreign language films including The Intouchables, A Royal Affair and Amour…
