Gritty role earns Nic 14th Globe award nod

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News - COLIN VICK­ERY

NI­COLE Kid­man’s gritty per­for­mance in De­stroyer has gar­nered her a 14th Golden Globe nom­i­na­tion, but other Aus­tralian ac­tors missed out in the list of nom­i­nees re­leased yes­ter­day.

Mar­got Rob­bie was ig­nored for her turn as Queen El­iz­a­beth I in Mary Queen of Scots, Joel Edger­ton’s Boy Erased was over­looked, and so was Toni Col­lette for Hered­i­tary.

How­ever Perth’s Troye Si­van gained a nom­i­na­tion for Best Orig­i­nal Song in a Mo­tion Pic­ture for his track Rev­e­la­tion from the film Boy Erased.

Kid­man (be­low) will face off against A Star is Born’s Lady Gaga, and Glenn Close, Melissa McCarthy and Rosamund Pike in the Best Ac­tress in a Mo­tion Pic­ture — Drama cat­e­gory. Bo­hemian Rhap­sody star Rami Malek was nom­i­nated for Best Ac­tor — Drama for his stand­out per­for­mance as Queen front­man Fred­die Mer­cury. Malek’s main com­pe­ti­tion ap­pears to be A Star is Born’s Bradley Cooper, who was also nom­i­nated for Best Di­rec­tor, and Willem Dafoe for his role of Vin­cent van Gogh in At Eter­nity’s Gate.

Emily Blunt scored a nom­i­na­tion in the Best Ac­tress — Mu­si­cal or Com­edy cat­e­gory for her star­ring role in Mary Pop­pins Re­turns. Blunt is against Olivia Cole­man, Elsie Fisher, Char­l­ize Theron and Con­stance Wu.

Chris­tian Bale will take on Robert Red­ford, John C. Reilly, Viggo Mortensen and Lin-Manuel Mi­randa for Best Ac­tor — Mu­si­cal or Com­edy.

The As­sas­si­na­tion of Gianni Ver­sace, which screened in Aus­tralia on Fox­tel, led the TV pool with four nom­i­na­tions.
