(BY ALI NADERZAD) All eyes are on the Globes this morning as this year’s nominees are announced, and to little surprise. No Country For Old Men is a likely nominee in this year’s crop of contenders for Best Drama. In fact, this award season could turn out to be a real coup for the Coen Brothers as long as no annoying scandal erupts. One thing that No Country might have against him is its lack of star power and an institution like the Globes loves a star. After all, the Golden Globes are the last bastion of glamour and glitter, aren’t they? Other nominees for best drama are American Gangster, Atonement, Eastern Promises, The Great Debaters, Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood. The nominees for best actor in a drama are George Clooney (Michael Clayton), Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood), James McAvoy (Atonement),Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises) and Denzel Washington (American Gangster). Michael Clayton is George Clooney and George Clooney is Michael Clayton, if you will. And while his performance was solid, anyone else worth Clooney’s salt could have fill Michael Clayton’s shoes. SCREEN COMMENT’s prediction for a winner in the Best Actor category is Daniel Day-Lewis for his role in There Will be Blood. James McAvoy is also a very strong contender for the prize, however, for his portrayal of a complex character in Atonement. One award is certain: Steven Spielberg will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his “outstanding contribution to the entertainment field” from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Globes organization.
