Golden Globe nominations for Adaptation: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor (Cooper), Best Supporting Actress (Streep), Best Director, Best Screenplay. The first two are in the Comedy/Musical category (as opposed to Drama) and the last 4 are both genres combined. That's 6 nominations for those of you with too few fingers, making it the 3rd-most-nominated film this year. Hot diggety.
Canadians know what they're talking about. Adaptation took out Best Picture, Best Male Performance (Cage), Best Supporting Male Performance (Cooper) and Best Screenplay (Charlie and Donald) at The Toronto Film Critics Association Awards. More info here, here, here, here and here.
Thanks Renee (Admire My Cage) WiLL and a-guy-who-wanteth-no-thanks, for the news.
Everybody happy dance!
/me happy dances.
More reviews behind the cut.
For your perusing pleasure, Postmodern Celebrity and the Knack of Adaptation, a piece over at Canadian site Exclaim! Nothing we haven't read before, but (as our motto says) hey.
Continuing the week's theme of "nothing-new-but-who-cares," some more stuff:
Being Charlie Kaufman (what uninspired sap would choose that as a title? ... oh, right.) Anyhoo, it's a review of a certain flower film.
Another review at Hollywood Bitchslap. (Loved the film, didn't like the ending...)
New York Press takes a look at Adaptation and likes what it sees.
