Romola Garai, Dominic West Receive Golden Globe Nods for “The Hour”

BBC drama The Hour has received a number of nominations for the Golden Globes, firstly in the “Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television” category, where it faces competition from Cinema Verite, Downton Abbey, Mildred Pierce and Too Big To Fail.

Romola Garai, who played Bel Rowley on the programme has been nominated for “Best Performance by an Actress In A Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television” alongside Diane Lane, Elizabeth McGovern, Emily Watson and Kate Winslet.

Lastly, Dominic West was nominated in the “Best Performance by an Actor In A Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television” for his performance as Hector Madden. He faces competition from Hugh Bonneville, Idris Elba, William Hurt and Bill Nighy.

The Golden Globes take place on the 15th January 2012. Not long now!

AP have a short video interview with Garai and West’s reactions, which you can watch below:

Personally I’m quite surprised that Ben Whishaw (Freddie) didn’t get a nod and hopefully they’ll give Anna Chancellor’s Lix a slightly bigger role in the upcoming series so that she can get a little recognition, too! What do you think? You can find the full list of Golden Globes nominations on their official website.

    I’m also surprised to hear Ben didn’t get an nomination! He did a superb job. I’m always glued to the screen when I watch him. Next year!

    And best of luck to Romola and Dominic!

      “a nomination” — silly typos.
