Gritty role earns Nic 14th Globe award nod
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.
