Three Happy Nominees

Why are Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes so happy today? Because each one received two – count ‘em -- Golden Globe nominations yesterday.

Streep earned Best Actress recognition for her outstanding performances in the acclaimed drama Doubt and the wonderful musical Mamma Mia! Winslet joins Streep (and three other nominees) in the drama category for her equally splendid acting in Revolutionary Road. She also picked up a Best Supporting nomination for The Reader. And the nominations for Fiennes include Best Supporting Actor for The Duchess plus Best Actor for Bernard and Doris, a made-for-TV movie. Although not one of my favorite actors, Fiennes was brilliant in both films.

Congratulations to this talented trio! Competition in all Golden Globe acting categories may be intense this year, but earning two nominations is something Streep, Winslet and Fiennes can be very proud of.

Golden Globe winners will be announced Sunday, January 11, on NBC.
