Atonement Takes The Lead


Atonement, the British period romance which received strong reviews and has attracted solid box-office business in limited release, received seven Golden Globes nominations today -- more than any other film. Joining it among best drama nominees were American Gangster, Eastern Promises, The Great Debaters, Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men, and There Will Be Blood. It was the first time that seven films had ever been included in a Golden Globes category. (The usual number is five.) The Globes, which divides the best film award into drama and comedy/musical categories, nominated in the latter category: Across the Universe, Charlie Wilson's War, Hairspray, Juno, and Sweeney Todd. While the dramatic category reflected the fare being considered by many other awards groups, the comedy/musical group surprisingly omitted the two Judd Apatow features, Knocked Up and Superbad, easily the two best reviewed and best-attended comedy films of the year. Two other surprise omissions were I'm Not There and Into the Wild in any of the drama categories. It was a particularly good day for Denzel Washington, who received a nomination in the directors' category (drama) for The Great Debaters and in the actors' category (drama) for American Gangster. Winners are scheduled to be announced during an NBC telecast on Sunday, Jan. 13.
