Fall Arts Preview 2013
It’s time for the Golden Globe nominations, and with some of the more satellite awards pulling for early frontrunners (Gotham, Film Critics from New York, LA and Boston, etc.,) we’re starting to see some movie trends confirmed. Everyone loved 12 Years a Slave! Unsurprisingly! And Breaking Bad and Girls and Nebraska and American Hustle and Spike Jonze and Martin Scorcese movies that aren’t even out yet!
But there are some surprises…Brooklyn Nine-Nine, anyone? Rush? The Butler gets no love? Greta Gerwig for Frances Ha? That movie was great and all, but Lena Dunham is already representing the affected Brooklyn 20-something constituents with her Girls nominations, are you telling us that the portrayal of overly self-involved young women trying to “make it” in New York is going to start being a thing? Is already a thing?
See the full list of nominees below.

Since her Seinfeld days, the actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 52, has maintained a healthy career in television, thanks to shows like Arrested Development, The New Adventures of Old Christine and now the HBO series Veep, currently shooting its third season. As the leading lady in Nicole Holofcener’s new romantic comedy, Enough Said, which releases this week, Ms. Louis-Dreyfus—who stars alongside the late James Gandolfini, the film’s unexpected love interest—stakes her claim on the silver screen. In a recent conversation with the Transom, Ms. Louis-Dreyfus discussed her new role, the idea of being typecast and the experience of acting with Mr. Gandolfini in his penultimate film.
