Golden Globes Tonight on NBC at 8:00 pm- Italians Representin'.

This is definitely one of the most important nights in Hollywood for actors, studios and networks. What happens at the Globes usually predicts the Oscar wins. But this year is full of our very own Italian, Italian American presence in nominations from best actor, best film to best actress. Tonight promises to be full of great wins, and I am sure unforgettable speeches. We can be especially happy that many of our fellow Italian Americans are in the running for some unbelievable categories.

Here are a few:
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture- Leonardo Di Caprio
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture- Frank Langella
  • Best Performance by an Actress In A Supporting Role in a Motion Picture- Marisa Tomei
  • Best Foreign Language Film- Gomorrah (Italy)The Country of Italy.

Well, I think that's it, if I'm missing someone, comment this post. I look forward to the Golden Globes tonight, let's support our fellow Italian Americans. I mean really, what is cinema without the Italians?

In the words of Federico Fellini--

“A good opening and a good ending make for a good film provide they come close together.”

Italian American Actor, Frank Langella--Stars In Critically Acclaimed--"FROST / NIXON"

Italian American actor, Frank Langella is now starring in the role that could win him some great awards this upcoming season. The movie, directed by Ron Howard is "Frost/ Nixon." Langella plays the role of President Richard Nixon and depicts the story behind the Watergate scandal that caused Nixon to resign as President. The role looks extremely challenging and actually stretched Langella into a new category, which shows his versatility as an actor. He's better known for his Broadway work in theater, where he's won many acclaimed awards and honors. I was watching the Critics Choice Awards last night and was so interested in what he had to say on the pre-red carpet interviews, he just seems like such a down to Earth person. I wish him luck with the movie, which I know is going to be super successful, just based on the initial hype already.
