If you haven't noticed, I haven't been paying much attention to awards stuff this year... it seems with each passing season my interest wanes as their choices grow more tedious. Still they get shit right here and there and this is one of those times:
Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in In Bruges both nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical for the Golden Globes, and the film itself for Best Picture Comedy/Musical. In-fucking-deed. I salute you, Hollywood Foreign Press. I don't imagine that the Oscars will have the balls to nominate any of it, but maybe this will cement a nomination at the very least for Martin McDonagh's fantastic script. I'm disappointed that Ralph Fiennes didn't get in for Supporting, but these two acting noms (inevitably canceling each other out, naturally) alone are the sort of thing to start a morning right.
Check out the rest of the nominations here, or read Nat's eventual take over here. For more on my In Bruges infatuation, click here.
ETA Also a big word for the nomination for Rebecca Hall in Vicky Christina Barcelona. I was secretly hoping she'd get some love. Yay!
