Meryl Streep vessel for other women's lives
Meryl Streep: ‘Vessel’ for other women’s lives.

‘Vessel for other people’s stories’

While accepting her seventh Golden Globe at the Jan. 17, ’10, Golden Globes ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Meryl Streep told the crowd that because she has played many extraordinary women, people have come to believe that she’s one as well. She proceeded to put things in perspective: “I’m a vessel for other people’s stories, and other women’s lives.”

From there, Streep got fellow Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical nominee Sandra Bullock (for Anne Fletcher’s The Proposal) all teary eyed when she reminisced about her mother, who “had no patience for gloom and doom.” She then added, “I’m not like that.”

Celeb glamour vs. real-life tragedies

Meryl Streep was trying to make a point about her attempts to reconcile her being at the Glitzy, Glamorous, Glorious Golden Globes a few days after the deadly Haiti earthquake. (Estimates now place the number of dead between 50,000 and 200,000.) In her speech, she mentioned Partners in Health, an organization that has been providing assistance to Haiti’s poor for quite some time.

And in the not-too-distant future, Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) will be battling it out for the Best Actress Academy Award. U.S. critics, for their part, have mostly favored Streep and An Education actress Carey Mulligan.

Best Actor Jeff Bridges

Jeff Bridges, who turned 60 last month, has been around making movies since 1970, but despite dozens of well-received performances he had never won a Golden Globe until last night – for his work as an aging country singer in Scott Cooper’s Crazy Heart, also featuring Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Bridges’ previous Golden Globe nominations were for the following movies:

  • Best Supporting Actor for The Contender (2000).
    Director: Rod Lurie.
    Cast: Joan Allen. Jeff Bridges. Gary Oldman. Christian Slater. Sam Elliott. William Petersen. Saul Rubinek. Philip Baker Hall. Mariel Hemingway.
    Winner: Benicio Del Toro for Traffic.
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for The Fisher King (1991).
    Director: Terry Gilliam.
    Cast: Jeff Bridges. Robin Williams. Mercedes Ruehl.
    Winner: Robin Williams for The Fisher King.
  • Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama for Starman (1984).
    Director: John Carpenter.
    Cast: Jeff Bridges. Karen Allen.
    Winner: F. Murray Abraham for Amadeus.

Jeff Bridges Oscar nominations

Jeff Bridges has also been nominated for four Academy Awards; he has never won.

  • Best Supporting Actor for The Contender (2000).
    Winner: Benicio Del Toro for Traffic.
  • Best Actor for Starman (1984).
    Winner: F. Murray Abraham for Amadeus.
  • Best Supporting Actor for Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974).
    Director: Michael Cimino.
    Cast: Clint Eastwood. Jeff Bridges.
    Winner: Robert De Niro for The Godfather: Part II.
  • Best Supporting Actor for The Last Picture Show (1971).
    Director: Peter Bogdanovich.
    Cast: Timothy Bottoms. Cybill Shepherd. Jeff Bridges. Cloris Leachman. Ben Johnson. Ellen Burstyn.
    Winner: Ben Johnson for The Last Picture Show.

This year, Jeff Bridges is the favorite to take home the Best Actor Oscar for Crazy Heart.

Upcoming Jeff Bridges movies

Jeff Bridges will be next seen opposite Garrett Hedlund in Joseph Kosinski’s TRON: Legacy; Bridges had one of the leads in Steven Lisberger’ 1982 TRON, which turned out to be a box office disappointment. Also in the original movie’s cast: Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, and Cindy Morgan.

Later in the year, Bridges will be seen in Joel and Ethan Coen’s True Grit, a remake of Henry Hathaway’s 1969 Western that won John Wayne a Best Actor Oscar. Also in the remake’s cast: Hailee Steinfeld (in the old Kim Darby role), Matt Damon (in the old Glen Campbell role), and Josh Brolin.

Bridges will probably be much better than Wayne in the role of Rooster Cogburn, though he’s looking more and more like Buffalo Bill. Perhaps a remake of the Robert Altman-Paul Newman Western Buffalo Bill and the Indians is in the works?

T Bone Burnett and Ryan Bingham

Besides Jeff Bridges’ Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical win, Crazy Heart was also handed another Golden Globe: Best Song for “The Weary Kind,” written by T Bone Burnett and Ryan Bingham (who also has a supporting role in the film).

In the coming weeks, T Bone Burnett and Ryan Bingham should be taking home the Best Song Academy Award as well.

Best Supporting Actress Mo’Nique: Emotional speech

Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe winner Mo’Nique – for Lee Daniels’ Precious – delivered a highly emotional speech that some found the most touching of the evening. Alternately choking up and bursting out, she talked about her dreams of becoming a star, eventually dedicating her award to women who have been sexually abused.

In Precious, she plays Gabourey Sidibe’s abusive mother. Also in the cast: Paula Patton, Mariah Carey, Sherri Shepherd, and Lenny Kravitz.
