New Mexico’s Own Award Winning Series Breaking Bad is kicking-off award season with an early morning phone call for leading man Bryan Cranston with the news that he’s nominated for a Golden Globe for his part in the AMC series!
CONGRATULATIONS BRYAN! The star “represents” including the entire cast and crew upon the news of the Nom, “Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this recognition. “Breaking Bad” has been an extraordinary journey and I am honored to represent our amazing cast and crew with this nomination.” CLASS ACT, Golden Globe Nominee, Bryan Cranston said today!
CONGRATULATIONS! MUCHO MAS TO FOLLOW!
“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston should be used to nominations-morning drill by now — but he isn’t.
“I got that ominous phone call at five-something in the morning,” said Cranston. “I’ve been very fortunate to get that phone call often throughout my career and it never fails to scare me momentarily. You think no one ever calls at that hour unless it’s bad news. I know that in the future when I get a phone call to tell me someone’s died, I’m going to answer it like, ‘Really? I was nominated?’ And then it’ll have a very dark turn.” – via Variety
Quote of the day re: golden globes goes to my all time favorite blah, blah, blogger:
“If Meryl sat in front of a web cam, and recited from Chris Brown’s now-defunct Twitter account while wearing an “I Love Tiger Woods” half-shirt, she’d still get a nomination.” – Michael K. on Meryl Streep’s two nominations today.
New Mexico hits the list of feature film nominees three times with NM’s Own Pretty Woman nominated for her role in Duplicity, Tobey Maguire in Brothers and Jeff Bridges for Crazy Heart – both filmed here in NM.
New Mexico takes television nods with the NM production of Georgia O’Keefe for best mini, Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons for respective roles in that series. NM’s Own Neil Patrick Harris for How I Met Your Mother and ABC’s Modern Family starring NM native Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
