Jennifer Aniston on her Globes nom: 'I'm just humbled'

Jennifer Aniston has been to the Golden Globes before. In fact, she took home a top prize in 2003. But that Best Actress win was for her role as Rachel Green, the Friends character that made Aniston one of the most famous and beloved actresses on the planet. In Cake, the small indie that earned her a Best Actress in a Drama nomination this morning, people might not even recognize her.

Aniston plays Claire, an angry, scar-faced woman who suffers from chronic pain that drives her to irritable and irrational extremes. When a member of her chronic-pain group (Anna Kendrick) commits suicide, she finds herself drawn into the shattered life of the widower (Sam Worthington). To see Aniston tackle such an unglamorous role—she eschewed makeup and wore a backbrace to limit Claire’s movement—that so contradicts the America’s Sweetheart image, evokes the reaction of audiences when Mary Tyler Moore played an unfeeling mother in Ordinary People. “Daniel Barnz the director has said that, and it’s what I’m so grateful and thankful for about him, that he did sort of take the chance,” says Aniston. “I begged and pleaded and promised I would go to the moon and back with him. It was an unexpected way to go and he believed in me.”

Aniston has played against type before, like in 2002’s The Good Girl. But her role in Cake, which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival, was beyond anything she’d tackled in that regard before. Normally, when you hire Jennifer Aniston for a movie, you want “Jennifer Aniston”—her famous face, her smile, her hair. Aniston had bumped into those superficial demands before, recently in Horrible Bosses. “I wanted [Dr. Julia] to have long dark hair, like Brigitte Bardot but brunette. And they were saying, ‘But they’re not going to know who you are,'” she says. “But obviously in this case, that was not an issue. We made it for $3 and we were just this little movie that could. We were focused on portraying her as honestly and truthfully as it possibly could be told. Making it bulletproof. And for me, as an actor it was such a great exercise in my craft. Being able to sort of mine a character and unearth her.”

Aniston, who also was nominated for Best Actress by the Screen Actors Guild, has now elbowed her way into the Oscar conversation. Cake will get a qualifying run later this month and open more widely on Jan. 23. “I’m just humbled,” she says. “It’s just all happening so fast and so beautifully. The Globes are a big fun party and it’s so fun to celebrate with your peers. My friend Emily [Blunt] is nominated so I’m excited for her. We’re just going to have a fun night.”

Greer Grammer named Miss Golden Globe

Greer Grammer will be this year’s Miss Golden Globe, the awards announced Thursday. The 22-year-old actress plays ditzy Lissa on MTV’s Awkward; she also appears in the upcoming film Life Partners, opposite Leighton Meester, Adam Brody, and Gillian Jacobs. And, as Miss and Mr. Golden Globe of years past, she also happens to be the child of a celebrity: as you may have guessed, Grammer’s father is three-time Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer. (Her mother is makeup artist Barrie Buckner.)

Grammer joins a long line of past Golden Globe assistants including Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick; Sam Fox, son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan; Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Several celebrity children who have held the position have gone on to become big-name actors in their own right, including Laura Dern, daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern; Melanie Griffith, daughter of Tippi Hedren; and Freddie Prinze Jr., son of Freddie Prinze.

Grammer will appear alongside returning hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at this year’s 72nd Annual Golden Globes, which air live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 11.

Save the date: 72nd Golden Globes set for January 11, 2015

Less than a month after Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes for the second time, NBC has already announced the date for next year’s soiree, which will also be hosted by the funny female duo. The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC live coast-to-coast Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, from 5-8 p.m. (PT) and 8-11 p.m. (ET) from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

“Not only do we have the privilege of announcing the date of the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, we are very appreciative of Tina and Amy for hosting the ceremony for a third year in a row,” said Theo Kingma, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “There is no doubt they will once again host a memorable Golden Globe Awards celebration!”

This year’s Golden Globes drew the biggest audience since 2004. Will Tina and Amy be able to top themselves with a hat trick?

Leonardo DiCaprio on Globe-winning 'Wolf of Wall Street' role: 'Thank God' I didn't become Jordan Belfort

Over his decades-long career in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio has had a reputation as a partier and a playboy…but he’s got nothing on Jordan Belfort, the debaucherous role he played in The Wolf of Wall Street. While he loved delving into the part — and even picked up a Golden Globe for his performance on Sunday — he was just as happy to leave Jordan behind.

“I stopped this film and it was like a giant adrenaline dump,” he told reporters backstage at the Beverly Hilton. “I haven’t been able to work since, really. It was a phenomenal experience. I suppose I’ve been doing this for a long period of time. Making movies is an interesting process. You put your entire life on hold. And these characters really do envelop you, for better or for worse. So, thank God none of the attributes of this character rubbed off on my real life, because I probably wouldn’t be standing here today.”

He’s also grateful to Wolf‘s director, the inimitable Martin Scorsese, and his young-at-heart vision. “I’m just thankful that Marty Scorsese is still as punk-rock, still as vital at 71 years old.”

Jared Leto wins Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes

Jared Leto took home his first Golden Globe earlier tonight, for Best Supporting Actor.

“I waxed my entire body,” Leto explained in his acceptance speech about his prep for the role in Dallas Buyers Club. “I’m just lucky it wasn’t a period piece so I didn’t have to do full Brazilian. …It’s more than an honor to come back and have this support. I never expected it and I never even dreamed of it.”

As a response to his role as a transgender woman, Leto concluded his speech saying, “To the Rayons of the world, thanks for your inspiration.”

Amy Adams wins Best Actress in a Comedy at Golden Globes

http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2014/01/12/amy-adams-05_100x100.jpgAmy Adams won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical for her work in American Hustle. Earlier in the show, American Hustle co-star Jennifer Lawrence won for her work as well in David O. Russell’s film.

“David, you write such amazing roles for women,” Adams said in her speech. “Thanks for letting the world know that a princess can punch and wear an amazing dress.”

This is Adams’ fifth nomination and first win at the Globes.

Jennifer Lawrence backstage at the Golden Globes: 'I need to catch up on my drinking'

“You guys didn’t watch my speech did you?” Jennifer Lawrence cracked to a room of reporters backstage at the Golden Globes after winning the supporting actress prize for American Hustle.

We did watch her speech, which was just the latest example of the Hunger Games star’s charmingly awkward persona. But even when she’s feeling awkward, her career is anything but: This is her second year in a row winning a Golden Globe. So how will she celebrate?

“I need to catch up on my drinking,” she said. “I think that’s why I was so manic. Normally I have, like, a glass of wine. Um, that’s not a good answer…”

Taking home the first prize of the night was “really overwhelming” for Lawrence. “It’s kind of unbelievable, really, genuinely unbelievable. I can’t really process it. It’s such a huge honor. … You gotta interrupt me or I’ll just keep talking.”

A reporter did interrupt, asking why she chose American Hustle and the loopy role of Rosalyn, the complicated wife of Christian Bale’s Irving. “Before I even read the script, I knew I wanted to do it,” she said, noting that it gave her a chance to reunite with Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell. “Then I read the script, and I fell in love with Rosalyn. There was so much growth and so many ideas in there, and David and I were just on the phone constantly. She just kept evolving. She was just so exciting for me. She was just this character. I just loved her.”
