Best Actor, Drama - 'Blue Valentine'
Ryan Gosling credits director Derek Cianfrance’s unwavering conviction and focus with helping him earn the Golden Globe nom for “Blue Valentine.”“There’s no way to acknowledge our performances without acknowledging that (Cianfrance) created the conditions in which they existed,” said Gosling. “I did feel like for a while that it was never going to get made. It kept coming together and falling apart and coming together and falling apart. Anytime you get a small film made it’s kind of a miracle.”
