Winning the category of BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION for her role in “Mildred Pierce” (HBO), actress Kate Winslet poses backstage in the press room with her Golden Globe Award at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
Yesterday, the International Ballroom opened its backstage doors and numerous – mostly locally hired – crews will start its transformation into one of the most glamorous venues Hollywood has ever seen.
Woody Harrelson used the early-morning Golden Globes nominations announcement to plug his new movie.
The actor was among the stars helping the Hollywood Foreign Press Association reveal nominees for the 69th annual Golden Globes on a worldwide telecast Thursday, and he appeared to include his yet-to-be-released police drama “Rampart” in the best picture category.
As he read the nominees for best dramatic film, Harrelson said, “‘Rampart,’” followed by a long pause, “opens January 27, but I don’t see it on the list here.”
The nominees for best drama film are “The Descendants,” ”The Help,” ”Hugo,” ”The Ides of March,” ”Moneyball” and “War Horse.” Harrelson, along with Gerard Butler, Sofia Vergara and Rashida Jones, made the announcement at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the Golden Globes will be presented Jan. 15.
