BetteBack January 9, 1987: Bette Nominated For Golden Globe Award

Farmington Daily Times January 9, 1987 Picture_141 BF:VERLY HILI£, Calif. (AP) – Woody Allen’s “ Hannah and Her Sisters” and “ The Mission” both received five nominations for Golden Globe Awards, often a omen of the Oscars, as Hollywood kicked off its honors season. Nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association released Tuesday put Allen’s witty look at married life in Manhattan, and the drama of church-state conflict in 18th century South America, ahead of the pack of films released in 1986. The nominations for “ Hannah and Her Sisters” included best comedy motion picture; writing and directing for Allen; best supporting actress, Dianne Wiest; and best supporting actor, Michael Caine. “ The Mission” was nominated for best dramatic motion picture; Jeremy Irons as best actor ; Roland Joffe’s direction; Robert Bolt’s screenplay; and the musical score by Ennio Morricone. “ Platoon” and “Mona Lisa” followed with four nominations apiece. The Golden Globes often presage the Oscar nominees, but the foreign press divide the nominations in some major categories between dramas and musicals-comedies. The nominees: — Motion Picture, Drama: “ Children of a Lesser God,” “ The Mission,” “Mona Lisa,” “ Platoon,” “ A Room With a View,” “Stand By Me.” — Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy: “ Crimes of the Heart,” ‘“ Crocodile’ Dundee,” “ Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “ Little Shop of Horrors,” “ Peggy Sue Got Married.” — Actress, Drama: Julie Andrews, “ Duet for One” ; Anne Bancroft, “ ’night, Mother” ; Farrah Fawcett, “ Extremities” ; Marlee Matlin, “ Children of a Lesser God” ; Sigourney Weaver, “ Aliens.” — Actor, Drama: Harrison Ford, “ The Mosquito Coast” ; Dexter Gordon, “ Round Midnight” ; Bob Hoskins, “Mona Lisa” ; William Hurt, “Children of a Lesser God” ; Jeremy Irons, “ The Mission” ; Paul Newman, “The Color of Money.” — Actress, Musical or Comedy: Julie Andrews, “ That’s Life” ; Melanie Griffith, “ Something Wild” ; Bette Midler, “ Down and Out in Beverly Hills” ; Sissie Spacek, “ Crimes of the Heart” ; Kathleen Turner, “ Peggy Sue Got Married.” — Actor, Musical or Comedy: Matthew Broderick, “ Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”; Jeff Daniels, “ Something Wild” ; Danny DeVito, “ Ruthless People” ; Paul Hogan, “ ‘Crocodile’ Dundee” ; Jack I^emmon, “That’s Life.” — Supporting Actress: Linda Kozlowski, “ ‘Crocodile’ Dundee” ; Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, “ The Color of Money” ; Maggie Smith, “ A Room With a View” ; Cathy Tyson, “Mona Lisa” ; Dianne Wiest, “ Hannah and Her Sisters.” — Supporting Actor: Tom Berenger, “ Platoon” ; Michael Caine, “ Hannah and Her Sisters” ; Dennis Hopper, “Blue Velvet” and “Hoosiers” ; Ray Liotta, “ Something Wild.” — Director: Woody Allen, “Hannah and Her Sisters” ; James Ivory, “ A Room With a View” ; Ronald Joffe, “The Mission” ; Rob Reiner, “ Stand By Me” ; Oliver Stone, “Platoon.” — Screenplay: Woody Allen, “ Hannah and Her Sisters,” Robert Bolt, “The Mission” ; David Lynch, “Blue Velvet” ; Neil Jordan and David Leland, “Mona Lisa” ; Oliver Stone, “ Platoon.” — Foreign Language Film: “ The Assault,” Netherlands; “ Betty Blue,” France; “Ginger & Fred,” Italy; “Otello,” Italy; “ Three Men and a Cradle,” France. Aside from the double nominations for Julie Andrews and Dennis Hopper, the Golden Globes offered few surprises. The biggest eyebrow raiser was categorizing “ Crimes of the Heart” in the musical-comedy division. The Golden Globes will be awarded Jan. 31 in a syndicated television show. The foreign press also makes television awards. Leaders in the nominations were “ The Golden Girls” with five. “ Anastasia: The Story of Anna,” “ Christmas Eve” and “ Promise” had four nominations apiece.

By Ian MohrSeptember 20, 2014 | 8:48pm

While hundreds lined up at Apple stores for new iPhones, seemingly as many culture vultures queued at the Park Avenue Armory to get into the New York Art, Antique & Jewelry Show opening.

A line snaked around the block on Wednesday as VIPs inside perusing a half-billion dollars’ worth of collectibles included Ivana Trump and her boyfriend, Marc Antonio Rota.

Bette Midler was seen on Friday checking out some “big-time baubles” while Betsey Johnson and “Person of Interest” star Michael Emerson also circulated.

Audrey Gruss hosted a luncheon at the show on Thursday as a kick-off to her Hope for Depression Research Foundation event Nov. 12.

The show runs through Sunday.

BetteBack January 1, 1987: 1986…A Good Year For The Movies And Bette

Salina Journal
January 1, 1987

319204_223688201038158_221327031274275_541540_695287725_n

Don’t let anyone kid you; 1986 was a good year for movies. Although there were no blockbusters — except possibly for “Top Gun,” ” ‘Crocodile Dundee” and “Karate Kid II” – hardly a week passed in which a movie fan couldn’t find something to see.

Sometimes, small is better.

I look back with considerable pleasure on such nearly forgotten movies as Michael Mann’s “Manhunter” and David Cronenberg’s “The Fly,” neither of which is likely to show up on many 10 Best lists.

This has been a fine year for British movies: from the energetic “My Beautiful Laundrette” to the toughminded “Mona Lisa.”

I have enjoyed many commercially successful movies (“Aliens,” for example) and some very obscure films (director Michael Apted’s documentary, “28 Up”), and I can’t think of a movie — in seven years of reviewing — that was more important than “Shoah.” The 9-hour and 23-minute documentary about the Holocaust is a masterpiece.

As always, there’s need for some special recognition: Bette Midler for her volatile and funny kidnapped wife in “Ruthless People;” Bob Hoskins for his chauffeur with a heart in “Mona Lisa;” Sissy Spacek for her wacked-out Southern belle in “Crimes of the Heart;” Meryl Streep for her journalist-turned-mother in the much-maligned “Heartburn;” Kathleen Turner for her adult in a teen-ager’s world in “Peggy Sue Got Married;” and River Phoenix for his tough but sensitive kid in “Stand By Me.”

Like everything else, movies tend to look differently in retrospect. The lists that follow are the movies which trigger the fondest or foulest memories.

The 10 Best:

“At Close Range” — Christopher Walken gave a chilling, magnificent performance as an evil father in director James Foley’s widely overlooked film. Sean Penn co-starred in this uncompromising look at the shocking violation of fundamental bonds between a father and his sons.

Children of a Lesser God — Wonder of wonders, a real romance. This enjoyable love story featured fine performances by William Hurt and Marlee Matlin. Intelligent mainstream entertainment without a bit of hand-wringing.

The Color of Money — Let’s face it, watching movie stars really is fun. Paul Newman was great. So was Tom Cruise. And for the longest time director Martin Scorcese kept the
screen crackling with excitement, the kind we used to routinely expect from movies.

Down and Out in Beverly Hills — Paul Mazursky’s warm, glossy comedies get better and better. Who else but Mazursky could make a movie about disorder, estrangement and corroded values and keep it warm, happy and human. Year’s best performance by a dog, the pooch (actually two of them) that played Matisse.

“Hannah and Her Sisters” — Arguably the best movie of the year. Woody Allen guided a superb cast in a perfect blend of comedy and drama. A movie to love.

“Little Shop of Horrors” – Frank Oz did an excellent job of bringing the upbeat energies of the stage to this delightfully demented musical. An energetic, cracked and very inventive movie about a man-eating plant.

“My Beautiful Laundrette” — Of all this year’s British imports, this one stands as the freshest. Hanif Kureishi’s script had heart and eloquence and Daniel Day Lewis gave a stunning performance as a young punk.

“A Room With a View” — James Ivory’s adaptation of E.M. Forster’s novel had polish and a cast of characters who were great fun to be with.

“Sid and Nancy” — Repellent and funny, a look at the outrageous lives of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but I admired the risks director Alex Cox
took in bringing this rude couple to the screen.

“True Stories” — David Byrne’s wacky, visually inventive look at a small Texas town; Byrne turned his movie into a gleaming art object, bringing a sensibility to the screen that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. Possibly the most adventurous American movie of the year.
