When you consider the Golden Globe nominees there are few surprises in this years line up, and I can be proud to say that I’ve seen all but one of the Best Picture nominees, AND that I will see “127 Hours” this week to make it 100%. Some say this was not a good year, and yes there were certainly lots of duds, but these films all had merit, and I for one congratulate the Academy for making sure I see them all.
In addition to “127 Hours,” the following films are on my list to see.
· “Biutiful,” nominated for Best Foreign Language Film (Mexico), and for Javier Bardem’s leading actor role.
· “The Town,” nominated for Jeremy Renner’s supporting actor role. (You may remember Renner or his starring role in the 2009 Best Picture-winning war thriller The Hurt Locker.)
· “Rabbit Hole,” nominated for Nicole Kidman, Best Actress in a Leading Role.
· “Blue Valentine,” Michelle Williams was nominated for her leading actress role.
· PLUS the nominees for Best Animated Short, and Best Documentary Feature.
I’m going to be busy, but I’ll keep you posted.
