Golden Globe Winners on the Lopate Show

Monday, January 16, 2012 - 04:25 PM

Last night’s Golden Globe Awards honored a few recent guests on the Leonard Lopate Show.

“The Artist” won three awards at the Golden Globes, including one for best comedy. In November, Michel Hazanavicius, writer and director of “The Artist,” spoke with Leonard about making a modern silent film. 

Alexander Payne’s film “The Descendants” won for best drama. Alexander Payne was on the Leonard Lopate Show just last week to discuss the movie and his career as a filmmaker. Two of the stars of “The Descendants,” Judy Greer and Shailene Woodley, were on the show in November to talk about their roles in the film.

“Downton Abbey” won best mini-series. The second season is now being shown on PBS, and three of its stars—Elizabeth McGovern and Hugh Bonneville, who play Lord and Lady Grantham, and Joanne Froggatt, who plays the head housemaid, were here December 15 to talk about the wildly popular series.

The Iranian film “A Separation” won best foreign language film, and tomorrow Leonard will speak with the film's director, Asghar Farhadi.
