My Favorite Globe Nominee Quote


Luca Guadagnino, director of Tilda Swinton in Italy's foreign-film Globe nom I Am Love (lo Sono l'Amore) says he feels more l'amore for Hollywood than for home. "Italy has been a sort of strangely cruel mother to the film. I feel like Rapunzel in the film Tangled [which also got a Globe nom]. They didn’t pick the film for the Oscars. I don’t think the movie is the kind that sells in Italy now, which is basically dramedies about men that are not able to grow up. Vitteloni syndrome without Fellini. This Globe nomination is a sort of really strong warning for the Italian culture. Beware! When you don’t support what’s good ... then the image of your country goes down and down and down. They chose another movie, instead of one that was internationally well received, particularly in the U.S. But it’s all right. Right now the moment is cheer, and I’m very cheerful. It’s a great day!”
