Canadian Press Loves True Blood

January 11, 2009 by  

trueblood14Canadian entertainment writer, Constance Droganes for television takes a look at the nominees for Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards and discusses the surprised nominations and snubs.  While she goes through all the categories the one that caught my eye was her appraisal of  Alan Ball’s HBO TV series True Blood’s nomination for Best TV Drama.  Constance Droganes lists “True Blood” as one of the surprise nominees for this year’s Golden Globe, but seems to have high praise for its inclusion for a Golden Globe.  She states “HBO’s juicy new vampire drama bit into our consciousness in a big way in 2008. Scoring two Golden Globe nominations for Best Television Series and Best Actress (Anna Paquin), this fiendishly good romp in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana kicked the Globes’ usual contenders to the curb. And why not? Hot vampire hunks, the luscious heroine Sookie Stackhouse (Paquin), earthlings and bloodsucklings getting it on…Yes, all that bloody good tomfoolery hooked viewers and Globe voters, leaving them hungry for more.” We just have to wait and see how the Hollywood Foreign Press Association voted.
