Golden Globes Nominations Reactions: Barry Jenkins, Rachel Brosnahan, Peter Farrelly, John David Washington

 ” />
Nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning. Here are some key reactions from nominees.
I think that is relatable to different sections of the planet. "There are so many different ways to connect to a film like this. I don’t think the film is overtly subjective," Washington opined on why this pic resonated well with critics and HFPA members. "Everybody was so invested into what we were doing for Spike Lee," he continued. " He called working as Lee's lead actor "a dream come true." Interestingly, it was also a full circle moment for Washington, who made his feature debut in Lee's Malcome X biopic, which starred his father Denzel Washington "I learned not only just the process of storytelling but the entire scope of [production]," Washington shared as his highlight of the experience. "It was the tone that was set by Spike Lee… John David Washington snagged his first Golden Globe nomination for his leading performance in the Focus Features' BlacKkKlansman, which picked up a total four noms including Best Motion Picture-Drama. "Spike laid out a true story, a social narrative that has been generational about the vernacular divide in our country in how we express love and hate to one another. it made it such a free feeling of creative exploration."
Amazon dropped Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Many critics have heralded Mrs. She's breaking barriers as she notices that they're in front of her, and she's looking toward the greater good, but her progress isn't linear. Maisel for its timeliness in the #MeToo era, but Brosnahan told Deadline this AM, "I would argue that Midge's story is not a feminist one. She's trying to look forward and make her own choices." At one point when Midge tries to talk her mother into reuniting with her father and returning to NY, mom calls out her own daughter's hypocrisy is being separated from her husband. Maisel yesterday and last year's TV Comedy Golden Globe Best Actress winner Rachel Brosnahan found herself nominated again this morning for the role of NYC uptown housewife-turned-Gaslight stand-up comedienne Midge, who is already dealing with her fair share of mishegoss from insulting male comedians to her mother who leaves her father for the independence of Paris. "The decisions she's made for herself do not apply to everyone else, including her mother, and too much change is not welcome in Midge's life."
But, "because the characters arose from Mister Baldwin," Jenkins continued, "there is only so far away we could get. It was always going to be in his essence and his spirit." After tackling heavy material like Moonlight, Beale Street, as well as his impending Underground Railroad series at Amazon, Jenkins admitted that he's looking to do something different but isn't necessarily done with taking on highly emotive narratives. "The first draft of the script was trying to capture Baldwin’s voice… "There’s no time like the present… I’m glad this movie is here and people are seeing it and liking it." Jenkins touched on the process of crafting Baldwin's words into a feature. I’m trying to tell these stories as best I can." "What happens is I end up falling in love with these characters and the characters are going through very real things and you can’t separate the characters from the circumstances that they’re dealing with… Reflecting on the power of James Baldwin's words and how his 1974-published novel's theme of injustice is "clearly still relevant to what’s happening today," Jenkins pointed out the silver lining. After the year off following his highly praised Moonlight, Barry Jenkins nabbed a Golden Globe nomination, his third overall, for his screenplay adaptation of If Beale Street Could Talk. the more drafts you get into, the further away you get from the source material until ultimately the film becomes the film and rebuilds itself in a very distinct property separate from the source material. "It’s encouraging that a body like the HFPA is basically, with these nominations, making an endorsement that these stories are still relevant and they should be told and they should be seen, he said.
I wanted to tell that story." Given filmmaking background, it wasn't easy for Farrelly to prove he was the right one to tell that story. Luckily when Viggo [Mortensen] trusted me, everyone else did." Acknowledging his gratefulness for his personal recognition this morning, Farrelly felt the noms serves a bigger purpose. "The biggest thing for me is that it gets the word out. Peter Farrelly took a directorial detour with Green Book and it paid off. It’s not going to change the world but slightly move the needle in the right direction." The helmer who is best known for quirky comedies like Dumb and Dumber and There's Something About Mary, became a two-time Golden Globe nominated filmmaker with his best director and best screenplay nominations for the 1960s racially charged comedy-drama. I do believe that it’s a movie that can unite people and make the world a better place just a little bit. That’s what appealed to me. People will hear about it and seek it out. I want everybody to see this movie. They couldn’t have been more different in the beginning and after being on the road for a couple of months, they became lifelong friends. "It’s two complete opposites. "The hardest part about this movie was getting people to accept me in this role with this tone of the movie. "The thing that grabbed me was the hopefulness of this story, Farrelly told Deadline after the nominations were announced. Personal awards, I really don’t care about it, but I care about it as it will be great for the movie. They found a common ground.

HFPA Regrets “Distress” Caused To Drew Barrymore By Bizarre Magazine Profile

As far as Drew we interviewed her several times I saw her grow up before my eyes she is charming and talented. This doesn't negate the fact that the interview with Drew Barrimoor which took place in New York is genuine &far from fake. As a member of the HFPA since 1956, I have been a correspondent for many publications for decades. I interviewed celebrities published in Egypt Air's official magazine; Horus, as well as Nisfdunia magazine, which is one of the publications of Al Ahram. It is noted that the previously mentioned publications are authorized to edit the final version of the interviews, according to adjustments required by the magazines in regards to size of the article without altering the core of the content.
In a trio of tweets that did nothing to further her defense, the author attempted to explain the situation (misspelling the actress' name along the way). Read on:


The article quotes Barrymore as saying, “I cannot deny that women made a great achievement over the past century, there is significant progress recorded by people who study women status throughout history.”
An inflight-magazine profile of Barrymore under the byline of former Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Dr. Aida Takla-O’Reilly has drawn such ridicule after going viral that the HFPA has stepped forward to try to explain what went wrong and how.
And unless the author and editors of a deeply strange celebrity profile have proof they're not sharing, they would have no basis to claim the actress is "unstable in her relationships." No, Drew Barrymore has not "decided to temporary take an unlimited vacation to play her most crucial role as a mother," whatever that means.

"Despite being unstable in her relationships most of her life, despite the several unsuccessful marriages and despite the busy life of stardom that dominated her life for several years; the beautiful American Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has recently decided to temporary take an unlimited vacation to play her most crucial role as a mother," wrote Takla-O’Reilly. The Horus article, with mistakes of grammar and fact, went viral earlier this week because of its unintentional humor and seeming lost-in-translation style.
As an organization comprised of journalists, the HFPA expects its members to uphold the highest degree of integrity in their journalistic activities. We regret any distress caused to Ms. “We are aware that an article under the byline of our member Dr. Takla-O’Reilly and that other portions of the article may have come from other sources. "Ms. Based on our preliminary investigation, we understand that parts of the article in question were not written by Dr. Barrymore by this article.” Aida Takla-O’Reilly regarding Drew Barrymore, published in EgyptAir’s Horus magazine, has come into question," HFPA says in an official statement. Barrymore has been interviewed by HFPA members many times and we always appreciate her willingness to speak to us.

NBC To Remain Golden Globes Home With New 8-Year Deal

Added Mike Mahan, CEO, dick clark productions, “dcp, the HFPA and NBC have shared a great history with this show and we anticipate many spectacular years ahead.”
“The members of the HFPA are delighted to continue our long association with NBC,” said Meher Tatna, president of the HFPA.
The HFPA was repped in the negotiations by Joe Calabrese and Kendall Johnson of Latham & Watkins’ Entertainment, Sports and Media practice.” />
At the time, NBC  was already close to a deal to retain the poplar awards special. The pact comes almost a month after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association took the unprecedented step of announcing a date for the 2019 ceremony without a TV network.
Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide. With advertisers putting a premium on live entertainment programming that draws large audiences, the Globes remains a very lucrative franchise.

The pact begins with the upcoming Jan.
CBS reportedly filed a proposal and Fox had discussions about a potential bid. Still, NBC, which had been the Globes’ TV home since 1993, had had the upper hand throughout the entire process with the right to match any competitive offer. Over the past couple of months, reps for HFPA and DCP met with various networks.
That was down slightly from the 2017 show to a six-year demo low, but still ranked as the most watched awards show since the Oscars. The 75th Golden Globes drew 19 million viewers and a 5.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic (Live+Same Day) in January.
According to sources, DCP’s final offer to NBC during the exclusive window asked for “multiple” of the most recent license fee, something the network was not willing to pay. In April, HFPA and Globes producer dick clark productions’ exclusive negotiation period with NBC ended without a new deal, with HFPA and DCP announcing that they were starting the process of “evaluating offers from other interested parties.” At the end of the most recent contract, NBC reportedly was paying in the mid-$20 million a year for the Globes.
And this year will be no different.” “We’ve been the proud home of the Globes since 1996, and over those decades we’re honored to have been part of its transformation into Hollywood’s most joyous awards ceremony. “We look forward to airing the Golden Globe Awards on NBC for the next eight years at least,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment.
