    So happy for her this movie looks intense. Congrats Rooney!

  • RC2012

    I think she is beautiful. Not in the Hollywood Barbie way but in a very unique, delicate way. Congrats to her and can not wait to see the film.

    Message to Oscar & GG : Why are they nominating Meryl Streep when they already know she’s not gonna get the awards , even when she deserves it the most she doesn’t get it ! And actually she doesn’t need it ! #BestActressEver

  • Kim

    How they can nominate someone who is acting in a film that has only just had its premiere and has not even been seen by people?

  • solecito

    @Kim: I agree, that’s why these “acting awards” are a joke. Think about it, two of the biggest overrated tools, Pitt and Clooney, got nominated. It’s not about real talent, it’s about public relations and popularity.

  • Anne


    Because the people who choose the nominees get screeners (aka dvds) of the movies to watch.

  • Really


    Hollywood can buy anything…

  • to kim

    the Golden Globes are given out by the foreign press. Critics like David Denby of the New Yorker saw Dragon Tattoo weeks ago. these awards have nothing to do with “seen by the people”. that’s what the “People’s Choice Awards” are for.

    Meryl Streep best actress ever? no way. Ingrid Bergman, Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Vivian Leigh, Simone Signoret, Barbara Stanwyck and Olivia De Havilland could all act circles around Meryl. those women would have left Meryl standing in the dust.

  • VanFan

    Best actress ever is Vanessa Hudgens

  • Kim

    Thanks for everyone’s explanation!
    Still does seem so wrong to give a nomination to someone who’s film has only been seen by a few reviewers.

  • mel

    @Kim: Awards shows often nominate movies before public can see them, it gives it hype so more people will spend the money to see it in theaters. Since the Globes dont air until Jan 15th, we have a little under a month to see it :)

  • Sara

    @solecito: I agree with George Clooney, but Brad Pitt was deserved, I wish was by Tree of Life .

  • TheOracle

    I hate Clooney, he isn’t a good actor…and Pitt chooses bad roles. Both overrated. Give me Keanu Rives over those two any day.

  • Jordan

    So over her and the hype for this remake

  • Female

    @Kim: You, and the 6 people who gave that a thumbs up, are idiots. Ever heard of the word screeners?

  • Fake VanFan

    lol I made the #11 comment and didn’t realize that someone used the same nick, maybe I’ve seen and don’t apprehend, was in my unconscious, sorry, I’m just trolling

  • ok

    I dont get it, people do know this is a remake right? How the hell does this get a globe nomination?

  • mary

    to ok

    the same way that Martin Scorcese’s “the Departed”, which was a remake of a Hong Kong film called “infernal affairs”. whether or not an actress is nominated for a major award has NOTHING to do with whether it is a remake. it has to do with how well the actress did in the part.

    @Kim: The voters have seen the movie. Not only are DVD screeners given out, but they see early screenings.

    was looking forward to seeing this – mostly to drool over Daniel – but after having read some ‘choice cuts’ of her Allure interview… no thanks. newcomer here is so into her own as_ that it’s nauseating.

    much prefer her sister in FX’s AHS. though neither is much of a looker, Kate Mara isn’t 1/2 as annoying as Mickey Rooney here.

  • mary


    Because critics get their screeners advance, they already saw the movie.

  • oh please

    @ok: YOU do know this is NOT a remake, right? It’s a new ADAPTATION of the book. The SOURCE for this movie was the book and not the swedish movies. They wouldn’t get anything from it, they left many plots aside. So go suck the word ‘remake’. Sorry for being rude. (Just kidding, you’re too ignorant for any apologies.)
