Looking to class things up in your DVD collection this week? Well, some very impressive titles come out today that will make you look like King or Queen of the frickin' Cinema. There's also some stuff that may actually be entertaining, like James Bond having sex with Sarah Connor, but, hey, whatever floats your boat.
It's a good year to be Kate Winslet. At least, it is in the eyes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. This morning, the nominees were announced for this year's Golden Globes, and the actress not only has a nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture (drama category) for Revolutionary Road, but a Best Supporting Actress nod for The Reader, as well. Oh, and both films are also up for the Best Picture award. Kate Winslet is the fricking 2008 Midas with a Golden Globe touch. The awards show, known best around these parts for serving booze throughout the evening (thus making for slightly more colorful acceptance speeches, from which everyone benefits, really) and also for snarling traffic at Wilshire and Santa Monica on an otherwise Free Ride Sunday Night, passed out nominations -- at least, for the most esteemed award of the night, Best Motion Picture, Drama -- to a handful of movies that 99% of the population hasn't seen yet. Almost all of the films open in the theaters in the future, with the exception of two (Frost/Nixon and Slumdog Millionaire) that opened only recently and to very limited release. Rejoice, movie-lovers! At least it'll give you something to look forward to. A list of those noms, after the jump.
