Brush Up On Your Golden Globes

Wednesday, December 16, 2009 - 09:20 AM

2009 has been a banner year for Hollywood — and with yesterday’s announcement of the Golden Globe nominees, it’s officially awards season.  Before you watch the nominees work the red carpet (and, perhaps, get tipsy during the broadcast), hear how they got there in the first place.

Check out Kurt's candid conversations with some of the nominees about being (and staying) creative in Hollywood.





Kathryn Bigelow was nominated for Best Director for “The Hurt Locker” (which is also nominated for Best Picture and Best Screenplay)

Jason Reitman’s also up for Best Director for “Up in the Air” (which is also nominated for Best Picture and four other awards), based on the book by Walter Kirn.

Marvin Hamlisch was nominated for his killer score for “The Informant!

Gabourey Sidibe was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for her break-out performance in “Precious.”

And coming up…

James Cameron was just in the studio to talk about his new movie “Avatar” – listen for that interview this weekend.  And later this month, we’ll talk to David Shore (creator of the nominated TV series “House”) about his hero’s not-so-secret resemblance to Sherlock Holmes.

See the full list of nominees HERE.

I agree with you Elly. Its good there are films on subjects that are not bought and paid for by Hollywood. You get to see the unaltered truth of a subject, not americanised how -we-are-best-at-everything sentiment. Not that I am against America, just the obvious propaganda crap that they can churn out...oops was getting on my soap box sorry!

Thanks for the post 360

Some of the bets films are world cinema. Its great that the low key, low budget films get some recognition. There is a stage where you get sick of all the hollywood hype over a stinking flop of a film.

I am setting up a Blog like this one for my knew job as an art school , Otis College of Art and Design, Alumni Advocate. I am
wondering how many people or how few people work on updating this Blog.

Thanks, I am a huge fan of the cross cultural reporting. As an artist foremost is is just darn great dialogue in the studio.
