Brief Golden Globes Musings

By | Nat-news | One Comment

I wanted to follow up on Belerofonte’s post about Natalie Portman’s Golden Globes controversy. Running the site’s social accounts, I’ve seen a lot of the anger firsthand and thought I’d add my two cents.

To those who feel that Natalie stepped over the mark and ruined the moment for the directors:

It’s the Golden Globes. A show where celebs get drunk, lob jokes at each other on stage and generally push the boundaries in ways they wouldn’t at more formal awards shows. In short, chill out. I’m sure the likes of Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott couldn’t care less.

To those who feel that Greta Gerwig and other women directors were excluded because of their gender:

Maybe. But if the voters were so against someone like Gerwig, they sure showed it in a very strange way – 4 big nominations and winning Best Comedy. The idea that “well, it won best film so it has to be best director as well” has always struck me as a silly argument. If there was no difference between Best Director and Best Film then there wouldn’t be two categories.

Everyone has their own idea of what Best Director means. I haven’t seen Lady Bird but it seems genuinely considered to be one of the best screenplay’s of the year – that’s the sort of thing that can count against a Best Director nomination or win.

Basically, I find myself somewhere in the middle. Where did you come down?

Thanks to Oscarisaacfandom, here we have a new still of the film, taken from a poster stand in a movie theater. Keeping in mind that there are less than six weeks left for its release in the USA, presumably we will see more promotional images soon…

Pale Blue Dot

By | Nat-news | One Comment

To much consternation, Natalie’s rumoured appearance in Gravity fell through and Sandra Bullock took her spot in the spacesuit. Well, Natalie might finally get to space in Noah Hawley’s (Fargo series) Pale Blue Dot. Reese Witherspoon was going to star but has had to drop out over TV commitments, opening the door for Natalie. She is currently in talks but, given how much I love Fargo, I hope this one pans out.

Natalie Portman Pale Blue Dot

“Pale Blue Dot” follows a successful female astronaut who, after coming back home from a mission in space, starts to unravel when confronted by her seemingly perfect American dream life. The film explores the theory that astronauts who spend long periods of time in space begin to lose their sense of reality when they return home.

Natalie´s remark at the Golden Globes

By | Nat-news, News | No Comments

There is no doubt that Natalie’s shade during the award for best director at the Golden Globes has been one of the most commented moments these last two days. There have been all kinds of reactions, mostly positive, highlighting the audacity of the moment, but she has also been accused of being unnecessarily rude to the honored directors that night. Whatever the opinions on it, it´s obvious that it has served to generate debate about the lack of representation of women directors in the industry. Greta Gerwig was asked about it in “The View” this morning:

Steven Spielberg, one of the nominees at the Golden Globes, and Patty Jenkins, were asked about the matter by Entertainment Tonight last night:

Also, Guillermo del Toro, the winner of the award last Sunday, showed his support for Natalie’s message, in an email sent to IndieWire:

“I think it was great!” he wrote. “She should say exactly what she feels. There is phenomenal work being done by female directors.” He singled out several awards season contenders from women directors, adding that “’Mudbound,’ ‘Lady Bird’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ are all terrific.”

Maybe we can see a female director nominated at the Oscars in the coming weeks? We’ll see…
