Globes film nominations: Director

Clint Eastwood
Film: “Flags of Our Fathers”
Globes history: Eastwood has four director noms, winning in 2005 (“Million Dollar Baby”), ’93 (“Unforgiven”) and ’89 (“Bird”). In addition to the score nod he received in ’05 for “Million Dollar Baby,” he was also the Cecil B. DeMille honoree in ’88 and the winner of the Henrietta Award for world film favorite in 1971.
Voters say … “He really might suffer from being against himself here. I actually liked the Japanese one (“Letters From Iwo Jima”) better.”

Clint Eastwood
Film: “Letters From Iwo Jima”
Voters say … “There’s not much you can say about Clint Eastwood that hasn’t already been said. He’s a legend.”

Stephen Frears
Film: “The Queen”
Globes history: This is Frears’ first nomination.
Voters say … “He did a good job, but he might have been a bit too partial to the queen,” says one Globes voter.
Adds another HFPA member: “As someone who has a lot of respect for what Frears has done in the past, I think this movie had several outstanding performances in it. And the whole Diana thing was something that affected everyone. It doesn’t matter where you’re from.”

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Film: “Babel”
Globes history: First nom
Voters say … “This is a very accessible movie,” says one HFPA member.
An org colleague, meanwhile, was confused by the film’s narrative: “We never understand, for example, why (Cate Blanchett) is so pissed at Brad Pitt. It turns out that he left her after their baby died, but you’d have to be superhuman to understand that.”

Martin Scorsese
Film: “The Departed”
Globes history: Scorsese has been nominated for the Globes’ helmer trophy seven times, and he shared a screenplay nod with Nicholas Pileggi in 1991 for “GoodFellas.”
Voters say … “He’s at the top of his game,” says an HFPA member. “He does this kind of genre movie just about better than anyone.” “Scorsese is a master, but it’s unfortunate that his favorite subject matter is people killing each other,” adds a colleague.
