Nominations were unveiled this morning for the 76th edition of the Golden Globe Awards from the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Coming out of nowhere to lead the tally was Adam McKay’s VICE, which still has yet to open in theatres. The Dick Cheney Biopic starring Christian Bale, comes out ahead with six nods, including Motion Picture – Comedy, Actor in a Comedy and Director.
Not far behind with five nominations, is Bradley Cooper’s Box Office and commercial success A STAR IS BORN which sees the Film nominated for Motion Picture – Drama and himself cross-nominated for Director and Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama. Already a Golden Globe winner, Lady Gaga gets recognition again for her performance, up for Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama. Very shockingly, Sam Elliott didn’t get a nod for Supporting Actor after a win in the National Board of Review Awards last week.
THE FAVOURITE and GREEN BOOK, the latter which won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival and also Best Picture at the National Board of Review Awards, likewise get five nominations. All three stars of the former are up for Actress in Motion Picture – Comedy (Olivia Colman) and Supporting Actress (Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz). Both stars of the latter are up for awards also in the category of Lead Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy (Viggo Mortensen) and Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali).
In Television categories, we saw AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE validated with four nominations including Best Limited Television Series, Actor in a Limited Series (Darren Criss),Actor in a Supporting Role in a Limited Series (Edgar Ramirez) and Actress in a Supporting Role in a Limited Series (Pénélope Cruz).
There is a six-way tie between BARRY, THE KOMISNKI METHOD, HOMECOMING, SHARP OBJECTS, THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL and A VERY ENGLISH SCANDAL.
Headlining his first ever Tour, Glee Star Darren Criss hits Toronto’s Phoenix Concert Hall Tonight. The Listen Up Tour features a combination of songs performed on that Series, plus original Music – old and new – as he preps the release of his long-awaited full-length Solo Disc.
The friendly and personable Criss, whom we’ve had the pleasure of meeting on a few occasions in the past (the last time exactly a year ago), made two appearances early this morning including a visit to KISS 92.5 where a large crowd of Fans awaited, followed by a visit to Global Television‘s The Morning Show (National Edition), on the same Canadian Network which airs his hit Series.
Spotting me right away, he asks me “Nice seeing you again! Are you still getting those amazing Photos?”. I don’t believe he remembers! Aww! Some even traveled from as far as New York to see their Idol and he was super-thoughtful taking his time to chat with each and every Fan.
See Criss greet his ardent Fans below:

Criss’Listen Up Tour wraps June 30, 2013 in Maryland.
So damn excited about this! After missing my chance to see it at TIFF last September, Kristen Wiig‘s latest Film Imogene – now re-titled Girl Most Likely – soon gets a release. The Comedy (obviously!) centers around a Playwright Imogene (Wiig) who goes from being potentially huge to yesterday’s news. She must return back home to New Jersey out of financial necessity and come to terms with accepting her roots and embracing her Family in order to get back to New York.
See the Trailer below:

Girl Most Likely hits theatres Friday, July 19, 2013.
Darren Criss sure is getting to know Toronto pretty well and makes his second trip here this year alone – his last being back in June for the MuchMusic Video Awards, where we caught-up with him. Criss stars in Kristen Wiig‘s latest Comedy Imogene and although he was last to arrived on the Red Carpet at Ryerson Theatre today, he certainly wasn’t the least well-received. Shrieks of delight could be heard from his female Fans abound and sadly, several Fans were left disappointed not getting a chance to meet him. The Glee Star did however, make it up to some afterward upon leaving the venue!
