Globes analysis: Actress — Drama

Vet Christie competes against thesp heavyweights

More than 40 years have passed since Julie Christie received her first Golden Globe actress nomination (for 1965’s “Darling”), and more than 30 passed since her last (“Shampoo,” 1975) — until this year’s nod in the drama category for her tenacious performance as an Alzheimer’s-afflicted woman in the love triangle of “Away From Her.”

Whether two score and two years will be enough to end Christie’s wait for her first Globe will depend on how voters regard four other performances by actress heavyweights. Cate Blanchett (“Elizabeth: The Golden Age”), Jodie Foster (“The Brave One”), Angelina Jolie (“A Mighty Heart”) and Keira Knightley (“Atonement”) certainly need no introduction to world cinemagoers, much less Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. voters.

Blanchett and Foster each have five previous noms, with Blanchett triumphing in 1998’s “Elizabeth” and Foster nabbing statuettes for 1991’s “The Silence of the Lambs” and 1998’s “The Accused.” Jolie, it may be forgotten, is 3 for 3 at the Golden Globes plate with “George Wallace,” “Gia” and “Girl, Interrupted.”

The 22-year-old Knightley is the junior member of this society, but having been nommed two years ago for “Pride & Prejudice” as well as being the only contender in this category from a nominated picture, she’s hardly going to be a pushover.
