Adaptation Leads Golden Globe Nominations Plus Mad Men!

Mom and I often talked of Ian McEwan's books. She liked Atonement, admired it. I don't remember any specifics, but he was one author whose books we regularly read and discussed with each other.

This morning the Golden Globes were announced and Atonement leads. It's gotten mixed reviews - lukewarm from The New Yorker and the New York Times, favorable from the Wall Street Journal (only available to subscribers) and the Washington Post. The seven films nominated films in the best drama category. Aside from "Atonement," the other nominees are "American Gangster," "Eastern Promises," "The Great Debaters," "Michael Clayton," "No Country for Old Men" and "There Will Be Blood."

I've not been able to go to the cinema lately, so the only ones of those I've seen is Michael Clayton, which I liked very very much. Last night, my aunt and uncle told me they very much liked American Gangster.

Jon Hamm was nominated for best actor and Mad Men nominated for best Drama!!! Yeah!
