Golden Boy

Congratulation to Jake Gyllenhaal on his first Golden Globe nomination. Jake was nominated as Best Actor in a musical or comedy for Love & Other Drugs. Costar Anne Hathaway was also nominated for her role in the film. Sadly, the movie itself did not get a nod.

Jake and Anne react to their nominations.

The ceremony will be held on Sunday, January 16, 2011.

Jake and Anne toast their nominations.

Jake and Anne in another funny interview done for MySpace Australia and New Zealand:

Squeee!!! I'm just SO happy Anne and Jake got Golden Globe noms!! Happy for Ryan, Michelle and Natalie, too.

I tried not to expect the movie to get nominated...until I saw that The Tourist...and Burlescque snuck under he wire! That sucks. But I'm thrilled for Jake and Anne!

UV, thanks for finding more gems!

mary said...

im surpised about the tourist too how do they classify it as a musical/comedyugh?

Sheba baby said...

Yes!!!!! Congratulations to both Jake and Anne!

Thrilled for Natalie, Michelle and Ryan too. Considering that Burlesque and The Tourist were nominated over LAOD shows that there is more campaigning done for other actors than others.

LAOD got better reviews than both those movies and the Jolie and Depp nominations are a joke, and Depp got a nomination for Alice in Wonderland? I hated that movie but it made a shit load of $$$ WW.

Thanks for finding more goodies for us UV! Love the pics of the GG couple Jake and Anne!

Monica said...

Happy! Congratulations, Jake!

And congratulations to Anne, Michelle, Ryan, James, Bale, Natalie!

I never expected to see The Tourist in the list of nominations for best comedy / musical!!!!
Where is Scott Pilgrim?
Two nominations for Johnny Depp? Where is Jim Carrey for I Love You Phillip Morris?

Was surprising to see True Grit being snubbed. I think they do not like the Coen Brothers!

Chica said...

Just popping in to say congratulations to Jake and Anne!!

Some of the other nomibnations are puzzling.

Congrat Jake and Anne, they both were great in the movie. Glad Emma Stone got nominated to.

Jake must have flown to Nashville after that sighting at a coffee shop yesterday.

UltraViolet said...

The Tourist nominations makes no sense. The HFPA is just hoping Angelina and Brad go to the ceremony.

As for True Grit, I can't believe all the advance buzz it has. The movie holds zero interest for me.

Hmm - IHJ has LA Jake pics from yesterday, too. But that's why they invented the airplane! We'll see if he pops up anywhere to react to his nomination.

UltraViolet said...

Also, if you want to watch the nominations, here's a video.

bobbyanna said...

Wow. These are Johnny Depp's 9th and 10th nominations. He won once, for Sweeney Todd. With the drama noms it seems there's so much chatter about Firth, Franco and now Gosling.

But with the comedy/musical category, the "wow!" factor is missing for JD's performances. I'm glad he got two noms in the same category. Maybe he'll do a Clooney and cancel himself out.:)

Sag actor said...

Congrats to Jake and Anne on their nominations.

Depp's double nomination is a joke, he doesn't deserve either and I happen to like him.

bobbyanna said...

Me, too, sag actor! Love JD...except when I have to chose btwn him and Jake.:)

mary said...

i like johnny depp too liked him in alice havent seen the tourist yet my daughter wants to see it shes a big JD fan so we will probablt see it next time she comes out but when like bobbyanna when it comes between jake and JD you know who ill pick any day :)

UltraViolet said...

Wish I'd tuned in - you can watch this channel live. Sam Rubin of KTLA interviewed Jake about his GG nod:

Jake G is thrilled to be a GG nominee. Won't say if he is planning to bring Taylor Swift as his date or what he got her for her birthday.

From most accounts, Johnny Depp is awful in The Tourist. Maybe he'll get it for Alice, but it would be really nice to see Jake win. Definitely not expecting that, however.

Nomination reaction: Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal, nommed for his perf in "Love and Other Drugs," read the news on his iPhone after several phone calls woke him up.

"It was almost delivered by messenger," he said, but he would have appreciated a more theatrical method. "I would have loved to have had it delivered by some person in Shakespeare garb." As the subject of clothing, or lack thereof, came up, the thesp talked about all the attention paid to the pic's nude scenes. "

There's been so much made about the nude scene, but the most important part of the film to me was the intimacy between the two characters," he said. He's glad for the attention paid to the film.

"In the entertainment industry we feel so insular. It's so nice on a day like today, to see how far-reaching something like this is."

UltraViolet said...

Jake's reaction in Hollywood Reporter:

After all the controversy surrounding the nudity in his film Love and Other Drugs, Jake Gyllenhaal couldn’t be happier with his and co-star Anne Hathaway’s nominations.

“I feel like so much has been made about the nudity in this film. I think the wonderful irony about this is that I think people got carried away with that and the thing that makes the film so special and so important to me was the intimacy between the two characters and what Annie [Hathaway] and I
share on screen and what we shared with [director] Ed Zwick while we were making it,” he says.

In fact, the actor, who is in L.A., wasn’t expecting the early-morning announcement at all. “My phone kept ringing at home and it was 6:30 in the morning and I had like 25 emails, which is either awesome, or disconcerting at certain times in your life.”

But, he’s not upset about the lack of sleep. “There are times when it’s so awesome to be tired, and this is one of those times.”

So what was Gyllenhaal, whose next film Source Code is out April 1, 2011, going to do to celebrate?

“Some form of caffeine is definitely in order,” he joked. “I’m planning on heading to meet my family soon for the holidays, which really, ultimately, I’m looking forward to the most. So, I’m just gonna be packing and smiling.”

So it looks like he's not in Nashville.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I'm so happy for Jake and Anne, congratulations! It would have been great if the movie got a nomination as well.

I have to say I didn't see the Whalberg or Berry nominations coming and I won't even get into the travesty of nominating The Tourist!

When I first saw the Jake in Nashville story for Taylor's birthday last night I thought to myself: Wouldn't his people would have liked for him to be in L.A. early Tuesday morning just in case his name was called?

Sounds like someone at Us was bored and had idle hands!

I think they may have had an early celebration when they were spotted at the Chateau M on Saturday:)

Jake sounds really happy!

mary said...

yea i wondered about the us article i thought jakes people would want him to stay in LA too and according to people magazine taylor celeebrated her birhtday with her parents and that jake was in LA

Anonymous said...

He sounds excited, I am so hapy for him and Anne both!!

The paparazzi are in Nashville basically stalking Taylor so I kind of had a feeling he was not going to be in Nashville on her birthday, I think that is the reason she went to L.A. last weekend.

UltraViolet said...

Ben Lyons (of course) interviewing Jake about his nom.

UltraViolet said...

According to this guy:

Jake Gyllenhaal insisted I address him as "Rockstar DJ Jakey G" throughout our interview. Weird ground rules, these celebrities.


Here's what Jake said:

"I think we tend to think of really interesting, great performances as soul-tearing things. I think Annie and I go to places like that, but ultimately, it's not about the darkness of the soul, but the lightness of it." — Jake Gyllenhaal on his nomination for "Love and Other Drugs." Co-star Anne Hathaway was also nominated.

Tweety said...

I haven'r anticipated the GG nominations like this since 2006 when I was hoping Jake was going to be nominated:(

Happily this morning bought good news, congratulations Jake!!

Ha, ha that is funny UV! (Lyon is still a tool!)

I thought the same thing too OONP when I saw that tweet on Saturday that's why I totally ignored that Us "story".

bobbyanna said...

Needless to say, I'll be glued to the entertainment shows tonight to catch as much as I can. Love seeing the picture of Ben and Jake! Looking forward to his interview. Jake always gets loose with Ben.:)

I'm sure Taylor & Jake did whatever they wanted to do for her birthday, or whatever they were able to do, etc. but putting her birthday itself aside, I can't tell you how delighted I am to see US Weekly busted in such an obvious way.

I agree, they probably got together for some special time in L.A. when he got back from Australia. I did see a picture of her going into her recording studio in Nashville Monday, so she had commitments, too.

Wonder if he and his family are going to the Marin County area as they have in past years.

bobbyanna said...


I've grown fond of gossip cop! :)
Altho, he blames perezhilton, but PH usually regurgitates crap he reads in US. LOL!

UltraViolet said...

Gossip Cop is good. But he didn't quite get the paps/cops/helicopter story right, either. Some say the cops were never called.

But it's nice when he calls people on their B.S.

USA Today asks the important question: Will Jake take Taylor to the GGs?:

Who's going to be Jake Gyllenhaal's date to the Globes?

The actors laughs for a while before responding. "Dude, I didn't think I was getting nominated. It's going to be a long, slow burn for me. I'm not rushing into anything!" says Gyllenhaal, who's up for Love and Other Drugs -- and has been linked, of late, to singer Taylor Swift.

He's in Los Angeles and says he was home when he found out. "I was asleep. I didn't wake up. It was pretty unexpected. I got a call and then I checked my phone and I had 25 e-mails, and it was either disconcerting or exciting. In this case it was exciting," the actor tells USA TODAY's Donna Freydkin.

He earned an Oscar nomination for 2005's Brokeback Mountain. Does this time feel any different? "The last time I was nominated for an award like this, it was so overwhelming and I didn't know how to process it. I can see these things are rare and you never know when they're going to happen, so you have to soak it in and appreciate each moment," says Gyllenhaal. "Celebrating is a long, slow burn for me. I'm going to really soak this in. I'll be with my family and I'm excited for the holidays. I'm not going to deny any awesome feelings."

mary said...

gossip cop said the cops were called but that they didnt send a police helicopter as some sites reported

UltraViolet said...

Will Jake ever text Anne back?

mary said...

i hope jake texts her back:)

UltraViolet said...

His reputation as a terrible texter will never be reversed if he doesn't!

Speaking of terrible... I hope Jake escaped from the evil photographer!

Extra said...

I was doing the happy dance all day over the news! They were saying that Jake and Anne were probably going to be nominated for a GG, I'm just happy that they right!

Jake isnt good at texting according to Anne::))

Gossip also slammed the Jake and Taylor moving in story too although they got it wrong regarding the source with the latest. Perez didn't spread this story Gossip cop, Us did!!

Yikes! What the hell kind of portrait photo is that? And it looks like he is wearing the same plaid shirt he wore during both US and UK junkets!

bobbyanna said...

LOL, Extra! I had to laugh when he said he was packing for a family trip. He wears the same clothes all the time! What's to pack? :)

JF said...

Congratulations to Jake and Anne, at least their performances are being ackowledged by many critics and the HFP, even though the movie itself isn't as well liked.
I think if the movie got better reviews Anne and maybe Jake would even have shots at Oscar nominations. Maybe next time? :)

Monica said...

I can see these things are rare and you never know when they're going to happen, so you have to soak it in and appreciate each moment

So true. Enjoy every moment, Jake, you deserve it!

That picture is really terrible!

I was wondering if we'll see a photo of Jake, Anne and Michelle together at the Golden Globes. I hope.

Get Real said...

YAY!!!!! Jake and Anne nominated for GG's!!! :D

So excited for him and them!!

So happy for Ryan, Michelle, Natalie, James and Colin. All deserving noms!

Get Real said...

I am loving Jake's reaction on the entertainment shows. :D

suvee said...

She said, “Dude! Exclamation point. Congrats! Millions of exclamation points. You did it! Exclamation points. First Golden Globe nom, right? Millions of question marks. X.”

I love his editorial flourish of "millions of exclamation points"! :)

I'm so happy for Jake and Anne's GG nominations! It's wonderful to see their great performances being appreciated and recognized despite the iffiness of the movie itself.

Some of the other GG nominations baffle me, to say the least!

I never expected to hear reports of Jake in Nashville yesterday...... once I knew that Taylor was in LA last week/weekend, I just assumed they were having their private bd "party" a little early. :)

bobbyanna said...

"I am loving Jake's reaction on the entertainment shows. :D"

Me, too! Altho I wish the interviews were longer. But I always wish that :)

I think he's also excited to share it with Anne. He was really happy for her, too.

Lola said...

Congratulations to Jake and Anne!!!
Also to natalie, ryan, and michelle. Loving his reactions to the Nomination. Yeah i figured when i saw tweets of hers that she was in nashville and reports of him still in LA that he wasn't going to be there for her b-day:) I wonder if Jake has a chance of winning? Also WTF on the tourist GG noms. That got awful reviews and people who went and saw it said it sucked.

mary said...

i wished the interviews were a little longer too but you sure could see how excited jake was i hope he wins sag nominations come out on thurday

bobbyanna said...

I just remembered. The SAG Nominations will be announced Thursday. These are the acting noms decided by actors for actors. It closely tracks with the Oscars. In fact, the nominees are usually identical. I'm not getting my hopes up for anything at all for the LAOD crew, but still...

bobbyanna said...

Oops. Sorry, mary!! I didn't see your post until after I posted.

mary said...

thats okay bobbyannna one can only hope fingers crossed

Monica said...

I'm very happy with the nomination for Jake, but I think he will not win. Probably the winner will be Paul Giamatti or Kevin Spacey, both highly praised for their performances.
Johnny Depp recently won for Sweeney Todd. I think it hard to win again so soon, especially knowing that his nominations were criticized.

UltraViolet said...

Yeah, definitely not counting on a win. But it's always fun when Jake is part of the awards madness.

Some longer interviews that you wished for in the new post! + Millions of exclamation points...
