So with the Golden Globe nominations announced yesterday, I am happy to report that one of my favorite performances of the past year is being acknowledged. Emily Blunt's performance in The Devil Wears Prada is enthralling, a brilliant foil for Anne Hathaway and the worst type of career opportunist - which of course makes for great viewing.
She's bitchy, aggressive, demanding and above all human - never an easy feet when you are sharing screen time with Meryl Streep, who devours all in her way. Emily has stiff competition with Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) and Cate Blanchett (Notes on a Scandal), but I'm glad she was not overlooked this award season and I expect we will be seeing other great things from Ms. Blunt in the near future. Congratulations on the nomination Emily - good luck.
