‘Room’ among the Golden Globe Award nominees

The Associated Press | posted Thursday, Dec 10th, 2015

Irish-Canadian author Emma Donoghue was among the nominees as the 73rd annual Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, California.

Actors Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Chloe Grace Moretz and Dennis Quaid announced the awards, which are handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

A Globes nomination can give a show, film or actor not only a bump in audience, but an edge in Hollywood’s crowded awards season.

Overshadowing the announcements was the fact that the live stream kept cutting out with many people tweeting about the technical glitch.

Donoghue adapted her novel Room into a screenplay. The movie starred Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay, and won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Room is nominated for best screenplay, best big-screen drama and best film actress in a drama for Larson.

On Wednesday, Tremblay, a nine-year-old Vancouver native, picked up a Screen Actors Guild Awards best supporting actor nomination
