You’ve got Leonardo DiCaprio (pictured with co-star Matt Damon) and Clint Eastwood each up for two, in Helen Mirren’s case, it’s a case of triple-vision. The actress is up for best actress/drama for “The Queen” and is the front-runner to win the Globe and just about everything else. Her compeition will be Penelope Cruz (“Volver”), Judi Dench (“Notes on a Scandal”), Maggie Gyllenhaal (“Sherrybaby”), and Kate Winslet (“Little Children”).
Mirren competes against herself in the TV movie best actress competition (“Elizabeth I” and “Prime Suspect: The Final Act”) and will also face-off against double nominee Anette Bening (“Mrs. Harris”), Gillian Anderson (“Bleak House”) and Sophie Okonedo (“Tsunami, The Aftermath).
Emily Blunt got a pair of nods in the supporting categories: movie: “The Devil Wears Prada” and tv movie “Gideon’s Daughter.” Toni Collette, so often overlooked for her stellar work in film after film, also got two nominations: best actress- musical or comedy (“Little Miss Sunshine”) and best supporting actress (television) for “Tsunami, The Aftermath.”
*Eastwood might have three nods if he produced “Letters from Iwo Jima” which got a foreign film nod.
