The 71th Annual Golden Globe Awards take place tomorrow and Helen is nominated – once again – for her performance in “Phil Spector”. This is her 12th nomination, which is a crowning achievement, especially considering that the Hollywood Foreign Press has somehow forgotten to nominate her for any of the “Prime Suspect” episodes, except for the finale in 2007. Her first nomination and win came in 1997 for “Losing Chase”, followed by nods for “The Passion of Ayn Rand”, “Gosford Park”, “Door to Door”, “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone”, “Calendar Girls”, “Prime Suspect 7”, “The Last Station” and “Hitchcock”, as well as two more wins (both in 2007) for “Elizabeth I.” and “The Queen”. To celebrate tomorrow’s Golden Globes, clips of all of Helen’s appearances through the years have been added to the video archive. And fingers crossed that an additional clip from 2014 will follow on Monday.
