Two Golden Globe nominees have Mass appeal
December 15, 2009 - Massachusetts native and Academy Award winner Matt Damon
earned two Golden Globe noms for his work in THE INFORMANT and INVICTUS as Best
Actor in a Comedy or Musical and Best Supporting Actor respectively.
For her work in the box-office smash, THE PROPOSAL, Sandra Bullock scored a
nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical. THE PROPOSAL was shot last
year in Rockport and other Massachusetts locations
This year marks the 67th annual Golden Globe nominations. Considered by many to
reliably foreshadow the Oscars, the Golden Globes are awarded every year by the
Hollywood Foreign Press Association. This year’s nominees were announced at the
Beverly Hilton by John Krasinski, Diane Kruger and Justin Timberlake.
NBC will air Globes kudocast from 8-11 p.m. ET on Jan. 17. The ceremony will air live
for the first time on the West Coast, and it will have a host, Ricky Gervais, for the
first time since 1996.
Another Massachusetts-made film, Martin Scorcese’s SHUTTER ISLAND, has been
selected to premier in competition at the 60th edition of the Berlin Film Festival.
Scorsese was last in Berlin in 2008 when he opened the fest with his Rolling Stones
documentary “Shine a Light” — the first time in the event’s history that the main
competition section kicked off with a documentary.
The Leonardo DiCaprio starrer, was among the first seven films announced for the
festival, which runs Feb. 11-21.
Score two for the Bay State:
Matt Damon & Sandra Bullock.
