Sideways Dominates Golden Globe Nominations

13 December 2004 | IMDb News

On the heels of critics awards from both New York and Los Angeles, the indie comedy Sideways dominated this year's Golden Globe nominations with a field-best seven nominations. The Alexander Payne wine-country flick nabbed Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Score nominations along with nods for actors Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church, and Virginia Madsen, making it the movie to beat at this year's Globes, though it's competing mainly in comedy categories. The heavyweight over on the dramatic side was Martin Scorsese's The Aviator, which was awarded with six nominations, including Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio (as Howard Hughes) and Best Supporting Actress for Cate Blanchett (as Katharine Hepburn). Million Dollar Baby, Finding Neverland, and Closer were right behind with five nominations apiece.

The man of the hour, however, was neither Payne nor Scorsese but Jamie Foxx, who received an unprecedented three nominations, for Ray, Collateral, and the TV movie Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story. Receiving little or no love from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were Spanglish (only a Best Score nomination) and The Passion of the Christ, which while ineligible for the Best Film . Drama award but allowed to compete in all other categories, was passed over entirely.

On the television side, the gals of Sex and the City, who were longtime Globe favorites, had to make room for some Desperate Housewives, as the ABC breakout hit scored five nominations (the best for any TV show), including four acting nods for its titular housewives (only Eva Longoria was left out in the cold). HBO scored big with TV movie The Life and Death of Peter Sellers and its perennial awards favorite The Sopranos, though Sex and the City only received two nods for its final season. The Golden Globes will be handed out on Sunday, January 16th, where Robin Williams is set to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

'Sideways' glance: 7 noms leads Globes field

13 December 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Alexander Payne's Sideways, a tour through Southern California wine country in which two old friends come to terms with their lives, proved irresistible to the voters at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which rewarded the rueful comedy with seven Golden Globe nominations, announced Monday morning at the Beverly Hilton. Sideways, which earned a best comedy nom along with mentions for its actors Paul Giamatti, Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen, dominated a crowded field for the 62nd annual Golden Globe Awards, which also saw the drama The Aviator score six nominations, while Closer, Finding Neverland and Million Dollar Baby took five nominations each. Jamie Foxx stood out from his fellow actors, earning three nominations: best actor in a comedy for his performance as the late musician Ray Charles in Ray, best supporting actor for his turn as an embattled taxi driver in the moody thriller Collateral and best performance by an actor in a miniseries or motion picture for Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story, an FX movie in which he played one of the founders of the L.A. Crips street gang. It was the first time a performer has collected three performance noms in a single year at the Globes. Hilary Swank hit a double, earning a film nomination as best actress in a drama for playing a young woman who enters the boxing ring in Million Dollar Baby and a TV nomination as best actress for a miniseries or motion picture for Iron Jawed Angels, a study of the suffragette movement. »

Foxx sketches comedy pilot for FX block

1 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

FX is getting back in business with Jamie Foxx, who will produce a sketch comedy pilot for the cable network. The project reunites Foxx and FX, who most recently teamed on Redemption, an original dramatic movie that aired on the channel in April with the comedian-actor in the lead role. The untitled half-hour also marks a reunion for Foxx with Marcus King and Bentley Evans, who served as executive producers on the WB Network sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show. "It will be a very edgy, irreverent and sometimes topical sketch show," FX president of entertainment John Landgraf said. "Obviously, Jamie's career as a dramatic actor is meteoric at the moment, but he wants to remain in the comedy business as well." »
