This Sunday night you can be sure to find us hunkered down in front of the television watching the Golden Globe Awards while nibbling on some FREDS goodies. Below, the top team at Barneys New York fills us in on who they’re rooting for.
It has been a fantastic movie year. I think that Daniel Day-Lewis and Hugh Jackman will win Best Actor awards for Lincoln (drama) and Les Miserables (comedy or musical) respectively. Jessica Chastain should win the Best Actress award for Zero Dark Thirty (drama) and Jennifer Lawrence should win for Silver Linings Playbook (comedy or musical).
The great style movie (other than Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel) was Beasts of the Southern Wild. Hush Puppy can work a rain boot. The actress who plays her, Quvenzhané Wallis, just became the youngest nominee for the Best Actress Academy Award in history. She was six when they shot the film. Incredible.
I unfortunately have not caught up on all the movies, but would say that Anne Hathaway was absolutely breathtaking in Les Miz, and I also loved Richard Gere in Arbitrage. I know Mark Lee will criticize me for that one! I think Les Miz will win Best Picture, and I loved the Life of Pi score, but that’s a long shot considering the competition.
Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field were both great in Lincoln. I don’t watch very much TV (I don’t have cable) but the second season of Homeland kept me very entertained on my couch one lazy weekend, so I’m happy to root for it.
I saw two extraordinary performances this year that I hope are rewarded with a Golden Globe: Marion Cotillard in Rust and Bone and Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln. However, I have to admit I have not yet seen Amour starring the great Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva. And if there is any justice, Breaking Bad will win Best Television Series.
I found The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel enlightening and inspiring; I hope this film wins Best Picture. And Judi Dench was a true heroine in this very personal story. She deserves to win for Best Performance by an Actress. This film transports the viewer to South Asia; it made me dream of picking up one of those beautiful printed shirts from Ann Demeulemeester.
