The Globes are today? – Joan Allen reacts to being nominated for a Golden Globe Award – from the Chicago Sun Times:
For veteran Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble member Joan Allen, the Globe announcements came as a complete surprise. Nominated for best actress in a TV miniseries or made-for-TV movie for playing the title role in ‘‘Georgia O’Keefe’’ on Lifetime, Allen said, ‘‘I didn’t even know it was going on. I was totally oblivious, until I got an email from my publicist in L.A. saying, ‘Congratulations on your nomination!’
‘‘I had to ask, ‘Nomination for what?’ I wasn’t even sure which award ceremony it was for!’’
When Allen realized it was for the Golden Globes and for ‘‘Georgia O’Keefe,’’ she had several reactions.
‘‘First I was so very pleased Jeremy [Irons, her co-star] was also nominated and was so pleased for my producing partners on this project that we were recognized for something we all believed in so much.
‘‘Now, of course, I have to start worrying about what I’ll wear to the ceremony,’’ added Allen with a big laugh. ‘‘And finally, I must say this is a very nice early Christmas gift to get!’’
