LOS ANGELES – The latest film from acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, “Los Abrazos Rotos” (“Broken Embraces”), received a Golden Globe nomination for best foreign film.
Competing against Almodovar’s drama are the Chilean film “La Nana” (The Maid), France’s “A Prophet,” Italy’s “Baaria” and the German production “The White Ribbon.”
Spain’s Penelope Cruz, the star of “Los Abrazos Rotos,” was nominated for best supporting actress for her role in the musical comedy “Nine.”
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Tuesday the candidates for the 67th edition of these prizes, traditionally known as the key indicator of future Oscar nominees, from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
The ceremony of the 67th Golden Globe Awards, which will be seen in 160 countries, will be held on Jan. 17, and for the first time since 1995 will feature a host: the British comedian Ricky Gervais, creator of the series “The Office.” EFE
