In an effort to glean something positive from the cancellation of the Golden Globes broadcast, I'm going to use the nominee list for DVD recommendations this week. All of these are worth a rental. Click on the title to see what I thought when I saw them. Enjoy!
Away From Her: Julie Christie won for best actress in a drama
La Vie en Rose: Marion Cotillard won for best actress in a comedy or musical. La Vie en Rose is not technically a musical, it is a biopic of singer Edith Piaf. Worth a look for Cotillards performance alone.
Ratatouille: won for best animated film.
A Mighty Heart: nominated for best actress in a drama.
Hairspray: nominated for best actress in a comedy or musical, best supporting actor, best picture comedy or musical.
