Golden Globes In: Gay Cowboys on Top Again

by | December 13, 2005 | Comments

Adding to the awards frenzy, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has chimed in with their nominations for the 2006 Golden Globes. Who’s winning this rodeo roundup of accolades? Take a guess: it’s not a gay cowboy movie…it’s a love story!

With seven Golden Globe nominations — Best Picture, Best Actor (Heath Ledger), Best Supporting Actress (Michelle Williams), Best Director (Ang Lee), Best Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song — "Brokeback Mountain" is following it’s BFCA nomination run by winning over the hearts of the Hollywood Foreign Press. The next most-nominated pics (tied for second with four apiece) are George Clooney‘s pet project, "Good Night, and Good Luck" and Woody Allen‘s upcoming extramarital drama, "Match Point." Also ringing in the multiple noms were "The Squid and the Whale," "Walk the Line," "The Constant Gardener," and "Mrs. Henderson Presents" with three each (see below for full list).

There were a few notable film nods: despite boasting the lowest Tomatometer of any nominated flick (29%), Rob Marshall‘s fetishist spectacle, "Memoirs of a Geisha," managed to get two Golden Globe noms — one for Best Actress (Ziyi Zhang), and another for Best Original Score (thanks to the indubitable John Williams). Also surprising the musically inclined category, a Best Original Song nomination went to the Italian-language rom-com, "Christmas In Love," which stars Danny DeVito (yes, that Danny DeVito) and a bunch of Italian actors, and has yet to be slotted for release in North America.

And, lest we forget the ugly stepsister of cinema, the Golden Globe nominations for television: Leading by a nose, "Desperate Housewives," with five noms. Learning from their 2005 awards faux-pas, the Foreign Press remembered housewife Eva Longoria this time, nominating all four main characters for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. Other prime-time shows duking it out this season are "Grey’s Anatomy," "Commander In Chief," "Lost," and "Weeds," each with three nominations for Best Series as well as individual performances. In the running for mini-series and tele-film kudos, HBO’s "Empire Falls" led a close race with four (see below for full list).
