GOLDEN GLOBES 2007 – WINNERS
Plenty of disagreements at post-Globes parties are guaranteed by this year’s
results in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s awards, although not at
Martin Scorsese’s party, where the veteran director no doubt has the winner’s
smile firmly in place as Best Director, although Babel was voted Best Film.
Andrew L. Urban reports.
A strong list of contenders in most categories has made for unexpected choices
by the 80-odd HFPA members, notably Sach Baron Cohen for Borat, instead of Aaron
Eckhart for Thank You For Smoking (Best Actor, Comedy/Musical) and Letters from
Iwo Jima instead of Volver for Best Foreign Language Film.
In the Best Actor/Drama category all four nominees (DiCaprio twice) deserve the
prize. But no-one will argue that Helen Mirren deserves her Globe for The Queen,
or that Peter Morgan deserves his for the film’s superb screenplay.
