VIGGO GETS GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATION!!!!!!

Viggo is not the type to campaign for a nomination.  He's all about the art.  And yet, he has been nominated for three Golden Globes and an Academy Award in the past which is a testament to what a great actor he is.  If you didn't see Captain Fantastic ... you should. 


Sadly, I doubt that he will win.  In fact, he should have won for Eastern Promises which was a performance beyond excellent.  And he never received a nomination for his performance in History of Violence, which, when I saw the movie years ago I said to myself ... that guy should be nominated for an Oscar!


But it will definitely make the Golden Globes MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE TO WATCH. 


I don't know what is on Viggo's horizon.  Haven't heard of any movie roles, but have heard he is planning to direct his first film.  When?  I don't know.  So let's all send Mr. Mortensen some love through the ether shall we! 

ADVENTURES IN DANNYLAND - INCIDENT #46 ...

Me:  Hello?
Dan:  Hi hon.  Hey listen, can you come and pick me up at the gym?  I locked my keys in my truck.
Me:  Of course you did.
Dan:  I know I know.
Me:  I just got on the bus.  I can’t be there until maybe after 7.  I’ll go home first and get the extra key and then pick you up at the gym.
Dan:  Thanks hon.
I get home at 7:00 pm. Trixie needs to do her business so I HAVE to walk her.  Back home at 7:15.  Get Trixie in the car and take off to get Dan.  Get to the gym about 7:30.  
I walk into the gym and have him paged. There he is (smile) … he sees Trixie and whistles for her to run to him. So, there he is.  He has no gym bag.  No towel.  No nothing.  This looks weird.  So I ask ‘where’s you gym bag?’
Dan:  It’s in my truck.  Remember?  I locked everything in my truck. 
Me:  But … how’d you get to the gym?
Dan:  I ran.  
Me:  From work?
Dan:  Yeah.
STUPID ME.  OF COURSE HE DID.  HE RAN FROM WORK TO THE GYM.  AT NIGHT ... IN THE DARK.  IN A T-SHIRT AND GYM SHORTS.  IN THE COLD.  K…
