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.

I don't see it happening...but it really ought to.

Hmm.....there's also maybe Simon Pegg for Run, Fatboy, Run, Jack Black for MArgot at the Wedding, Michael Cera or Jason Bateman for Juno, Sam Riley for Control, John C. Reilly for Walk Hard, Ryan Gosling for LArs and the Real Girl, and any one of the Bob Dylan boys (although Blanchett will probably win the Globe for that)

Yeah, I was thinking Ryan Gosling for Lars and the Real Girl as well. Also, could Sleuth be considered a comedy? 'Cause Michael Caine and Jude Law could both be in the running if that were the case, which would really complicate things.

Ryan Gosling is one of those who I forgot, yes. He is very possible. But if they didn't nominate him last year, would they nominate him now? Tough to say. If the film's successful, they might.

The Sleuth boys are possible, but it's a remake, which means it's got a higher standard to meet (Law was not nominated for Alfie). And they could cancel each other out. And it might not be considered a comedy. So I'm not too worried about them.

I really want Hansard to be nominated. Once probably will be, but it could be nominated without him. I guess if they snub him for Ryan Gosling, I can't be too mad. But still.

I'm afraid Once will be ignored entirely so......any noms at all would make me overjoyed seeing as it's still the best movie I've seen this year.

And, really, it should win best song for If you Want Me, it just should

I'm not terribly afraid of Once being shut out entirely at the globes. I can't see them ignoring it in the top category. Everywhere else, yes. But a LOT of people feel that it's the best of the year so far. I lot of people love it. And it's made quite a bit of money. They'll find room for it.

At the globes anyway. The oscars... meh.

Are you disregarding John Travolta for Hairspray, however disagreeable or meh his performance might be? He is supposedly a musical legend, after all.

I wasn't disregarding him so much as assuming he'd be placed in supporting. But you're right, they might also throw him in here. The stunt casting alone makes him stand out. But it's really a supporting role, so... hmmm...

Katherine Heigl deserved her emmy. :)

Adam K,
you forgot George Clooney for Leatherheads. And I'm sure that Ryan Gosling will certainly get the nom.
You still don't want to tell me wether or not you're single ? It hurts

RJ, I'm fairly sure Control will be considered as a drama much like Dancer in the Dark was. It's got six or so musical performances, but the heart of the story is the dramatic storyline and not the music itself.

They could theoretically go for both James McAvoy for Becoming Jane. If they decide they really really like McAvoy in Atonement then the love could carry over.

Plus, who knows how Dustin Hoffman in Mr Margorium will go down. Or perhaps they'll extend some love to Owen Wilson for Darjeeling.

It is quite empty though, isn't it?

I guess there are a lot of options. But I hope Glenn can pull through somehow. I wish they'd forego the inevitable double dipping for Depp, but I seriously doubt that they will.

re: Becoming Jane, I thought it was dead. And I doubt they'd nominated McAvoy and Hathaway. That'd just be mean... to shaft her for her co-stars AGAIN.

And anonymous, yes, I suppose I am single, but I never ever go to bars, so I'm not sure what you're talking about there.

"I doubt they'd nominate McAvoy and not Hathaway"

A couple of different typos there.

I really would like to see Jim Sturgess nominated for Across The Universe. I thought it was a great break through performance.

Two words:

Let me expand on that. Kinky Boots was never alive in America in the first place and was released in the first half of the year (right?) and Chiwetel Ejiofor also received a Globe nod for that tsunami movie (along with another duel nominee Toni Collette).

If they like ya, they really like ya... They gave Emily Blunt a double nod last year as well, come to think of it.

Agreed with the Anne thing though. That's just mean. But, who knows, they could nominate her as well. You never can quite tell with the HFPA.

Oh, and I also forgotten about Steve Carell in Dan in Real Life. It's apparently quite good.

If the HFPA didn't nominate Hathaway last year or the previous year, there's no reason they'd nominate her NOW, for this fluffy non-starter. She would have to be, like, Renée Zellweger in order to be nominated for this.

And same goes for Steve Carrell: if they passed him over last year for THAT performance, I'm inclined to think they'd do it again. But maybe Dan in Real Life is really good and they'll feel they owe him... or maybe they just like him better in the explicitly comedic categories.

I actually had a chance to see Dan at a sneak preview screening last week, but didn't have time. At school, they always give us these free passes to things that screen the night before all these major things are due. Sigh.

Actually, I amend that: it seems they really only like Carrell on TV. Notice how he was not nominated in comedy for 40-Year-Old Virgin either, but he WON the globe for The Office, which still has yet to win him an emmy. Bizarre. Especially since, in the little I've seen of The Office, I've found it much less impressive than his film work.

the difference between Kinky Boots and Becoming Jane is that Chiwetel turned in a good performance in a nice enough movie where as Anne Hathaway was blah in a mediocre movie.

I don't understand why they couldn't have nominated Greg Kinnear or Gael Garcia Bernal instead of Ejiofor. Maybe they figured snubbing Foxx for someone non-black would look racist or something. But both Greg and Gael totally deserved it.

But anyway, at this point, I think a McAvoy nod is more likely than a Hathaway nod. Though even more likely is neither.

Bernal had zero chance. I am quite confident in that.
