Could Glen Hansard get a globe nod for Once?
Sorry, I've just got golden globes on the brain. Don't know why. I should really be writing my spanish composition.
But doesn't the category look kind of empty? Even if they nominate Depp twice (actually quite likely, I think, for Pirates and Sweeney Todd... and he'll win for the latter if it's any good, which it may not be), and PSH for The Savages (also likely, given the weakness of the field), there are still two spots left. I assume Don Cheadle in Talk to Me would be placed here... but I haven't seen it, so I don't know if it's really a comedy or a musical or a drama, or what... plus, nobody seems to be talking about it, do they? Seth Rogen for Knocked Up is another option... they'll want to find ways to reward the film, but I always thought Heigl was more likely than he... she is hotter right now (just won the emmy, deserved or not), and gives, in my view, the more impressive performance of the two. Plus, she's got the title role (heh).
But really, that's about all the contenders I can think of. I'm sure there are more I'm forgetting. But they couldn't be THAT likely if I've forgotten them. So unless Johnny is double-nommed AND Hoffman is nommed AND Cheadle is nommed AND Rogen is nommed, then Hansard has a very good chance. He'll be on their radar screen if they nominate the film (more than likely, now, given the acclaim and imminent DVD release/campaign). And he does such good acting and singing, plus he wrote all of the songs. I just think a nom for him would be SWEEEEEEEEEET... please let it happen. Pretty please.
p.s. I'm waiting for a few more people to vote before I continue with the next round of WHO'S CUTER?. I know there are some of you out there who still have to do it. So do it already.
