The Golden Boys of the Golden Globes

Golden_globes_443w_2 It’s hard to believe that the Golden Globes red carpet ceremonies will not be televised. It seems so 1947, so prehistoric. And even if NBC does end up broadcasting the ceremony, the Screen Actors Guild has officially stated that its members will not attend. That means no George Clooney, no James McAvoy, and no Denzel Washington. But before you despair, take heart. Those three stellar contenders for Best Actor met with Shootout hosts Peter Bart and Peter Guber. That means that while you might not get to hear them thank their agent, their mother, and God, you will get to hear what they actually thought about the films and performances in contention. A complete list of the nominees in the major award categories follows as well as links to AMC’s relevant video interviews.
