More thesps tapped for glory on both silver, smallscreens

Golden Globe Countdown 2013

Maggie Smith and Nicole Kidman joined the ranks of Golden Globes double dippers this year, earning acting noms for their work in film and TV in a single year.

Both actresses are longtime Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. favorites — Smith has nine nominations and two wins dating back to 1964, while Kidman has tallied eight nominations and three wins since 1992 — but their achievements also underscores how porous the boundaries between the two media has become. And more movie stars working in TV has upped the chances of recognition in both fields.

Smith scored her noms for her scene-stealing supporting role in the second season of PBS/ITV drama sensation “Downton Abbey” and a leading turn in the Weinstein Co.’s “Quartet” in the comedy/musical category. Kidman landed nods for her portrayal of Martha Gellhorn in HBO’s bio-pic “Hemingway & Gellhorn” and a headline-grabbing part in Lee Daniels’ divisive melodrama “The Paperboy” (which caused a stir in Cannes).

Last year, Kate Winslet won a Globe for HBO’s “Mildred Pierce” and picked up an additional nom for Roman Polanski’s “Carnage.” The patron saints of this phenomenon are Joan Plowright (“Enchanted April,” HBO’s “Stalin”) and Helen Mirren (“The Queen,” HBO’s “Elizabeth I”), who turned dual nominations into dual wins in 1993 and 2007, respectively.

Mirren had an especially impressive showing in 2007, bagging a third nomination for “Prime Suspect 7: The Final Act.” Smith could have matched that feat if Globe voters had also recognized her SAG-nominated supporting work in “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” Other Golden Globes TV nominees who had film roles in contention this year include Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad” nominee, contender for “Argo”); Don Cheadle (nominated for Showtime’s “House of Lies,” contender for his supporting role in “Flight”); and Danny Huston (nominee for Starz’s “Magic City,” supporting contender for “Hitchcock”).
