Congratulations to my favorite Batman ever, Christian Bale, and upcoming Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker) and
my girlfriend Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) for scoring Golden Globe nominations, which were announced this morning.
(And thanks to Field Agent Mallory for the tip!)
Bale got his nod for his universally critically acclaimed supporting role in The Fighter (which I’m going to try to see this weekend, come hell or high water). Garfield will be up against him for his supporting work in The Social Network, while Stone was recognized for being an A+ comedic leading lady in Easy A.
I love it that Batman and Spider-Man are both being played these days by guys of this acting caliber. Can’t stress that enough.
(And while we’re at it, a guy who’d make an awesome Superman was nominated for his work on television’s Mad Men, and after the work he did this past season, particularly in the episode “The Suitcase,” he deserves it).
Batman movie architect Christopher Nolan is nominated for Best Director for the fabulous Inception.
(Seriously, how awesome is The Dark Knight Rises going to be? Very. Maybe the most.)
