Ewan McGregor nabs surprise Golden Globes nom

It seems like Salmon Fishing in the Yemen flew mostly under the radar this year, so there was plenty of surprise when it received 3 Golden Globe nominations – most notably, for our purposes, best actor in a comedy or musical for Ewan McGregor.

McGregor is up again Jack Black (Bernie,) Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook,) Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables,) and Bill Murray (Hyde Park on Hudson.)

The Golden Globes nominations are, per usual, very slight on genre.

    Wonderful! Saw this at 2011 TIFF – Even got a chance to get a pic with Ewan and just a few sentences. Love this film and the Emily/Ewan combo. Dynamic chemistry plus Kristen Scott Thomas totally out of character as a snakey, conniving boss-woman (but done with a comic twist). New dude in town (above with Ewan), Amr Waked was terrific, too.
