SURPRISE: So… does this mean we have to see Vice?
Timing is everything, and if there ever was a perfect time for a closer look into our country’s politics (aside from, you know, literally always), it’s now. Perhaps that’s why Vice, a movie about that guy who once accidentally shot a human in the face during a quail hunt — and also was our Vice President — received the highest number of Golden Globe nominations of any movie or TV show this year with a whopping six honors in all the major categories. The heavy-hitter, competing on the Musical or Comedy side, is up for Best Picture, Actor for Christian Bale, Actress for Amy Adams, Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell, and both Director and Screenplay for Adam McKay. No one is misunderestimating this film. Unfortunately, this one doesn’t hit theaters until December 25, so we still have a few more weeks to go before we can witness Bale’s incredible transformation into Dick Cheney and hear Rockwell’s George W. Bush-inspired drawl. — A.S.
