Hollywood East or Hamptons West?

Today is Golden Globes day. Hip hip hooray!

I love the Globes more than just about any other awards show, not only because of the winner selections but because of its festive atmosphere. It’s fascinating to catch a few unguarded glimpses of people who are usually acting in accordance with the wishes of a TV or film director or PR person.

This year is especially exciting as there are so many great films that have been nominated. And better yet, many of them have East End roots–from screening at the Hamptons International Film Festival to utilizing talent that lives and works here–which is always cool.

For Best Picture alone, three out of the five films have serious East End cred.

carol

There’s “Carol,” the forbidden fruit drama is up for more awards than any other. It also might prove a winner for the incomparable Cate Blanchett but did you know that it was also scored by East Enders Carter Burwell (he’s up for Best Original Score, fingers crossed) and produced by Christine Vachon of Killer Films? Also, co-star Sarah Paulson (LOVE her!) appeared on the Bay Street Theater stage last year in “Conviction.”

room

“Room” stars Brie Larson, who was named one of Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch for the 2013 HIFF gathering and the film itself won this past year’s Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature.

spotlight

“Spotlight” was this year’s Spotlight Film at HIFF. It also stars East Ender Liev Schreiber (who recently listed his Hamptons home for sale. Sad face.) and Brian d’Arcy James, who has performed at Bay Street Theater and the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. This film, along with “Trumbo,” (Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren are both up for acting awards) really lit a fire in this writer’s belly.  Fabulous! 

Trumbo_(2015_film)_poster

Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Revenant” and “Mad Max Fury Road” (really???) round out the Best Picture list for this year’s Globes. Boy films. Not my thing, though I’m sure that at least one of them is outstanding.

There are so many Hamptons connections for the top films of the year that it would quite literally take me all day to add them all in this post. So, instead of blathering on and on, today I bid you adieu with the official list of nominations for the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards.

Break legs and have some fun!
