The cast of "Across the Universe"2 take a break contemplating what Ms. Taymor meant when she said they were supposed to be "hippies, not actors in a Gap commercial"...
This year's Brit Flick3.
Daniel Day Lewis4 works on his "Henry Fonda In 'My Darling Clementine'" impression.
Clooney5 contemplates how his film will be an also-ran during awards season this year.
1. Blanchett is nominated for 2 Golden Globes: Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama ("Elizabeth: The Golden Age") and Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture ("I'm Not There"). Coming up next, she appears in "The Dark Knight" as the new batmobile.
2. Julie Taymor's "Across The Universe" is nominated for Best Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy. After seeing the film, I'm still not sure which one it is- musical or comedy.
3. Atonement is nominated for Best Motion Picture - Drama. The only competition it has is "No Country For Old Men" and "There Will Be Blood". All three are adapted from books. I have no predictions and, as I work for a bookstore, no snarky comments. You're all winners to me, d'you hear?
5.Poor Clooney is in a film that would've been a huge front runner two years ago. And that film was called "Good Night and Good Luck".
