A few weeks ago, I asked our community to share their favorite movies over the last year. The responses were fantastic, and I have a new list of movies to see now!
Today, the Golden Globe nominations were announced. While I have not seen most of the movies – the reality of being a parent with two young kids – I was very happy to see that Slumdog Millionaire was nominated for Best Drama, Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Original Score. You can see the full list here.
For those of you who haven’t heard Gothams interview with Danny Boyle, the director of Slumdog Millionaire, I encourage you to listen. His passion, intellect and commitment to good storytelling were very inspiring! He captured part of the soul of India and the human need to survive and live in such a touching and powerful way.
(And, I have to add, we are so excited about AR Rahman being recognized for his incredible talent.)
I plan to take advantage of visiting my parents during the holidays to sneak out and watch some more movies.
In the meantime, what performances do you think were amazing this year?
I think Heath Ledger in Batman was amazing, and his nomination is well deserved… Seems both Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep gave great performances in films this year as well. Would love your thoughts…
