The Golden Globe nominees will be announced tomorrow morning, and all eyes are on which possible contenders (Leo? Clint?) will get two nominations for the year. In The Los Angeles Times, Geoff Boucher chats with Hollywood Foreign Press Association prez Philip Berk about the possibilities of double-nominations in some of the categories:
In the history of the Globes, no actor or director has been nominated twice in the same category in the same year, Berk said, and although there is no rule forbidding it, he added that he would be shocked if anyone heard his or her name called twice in the same category.
Hmmm… that’s wrong. Tim Robbins was nominated twice at the Golden Globes for “Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy” in 1993 for The Player and Bob Roberts. I knew my stupid, film-awards-trivia memory would pay off someday. Man, I’m such a loser.
