Two Globe Nominations

New Zealand-raised actress Anna Paquin has been nominated for two best actress Golden Globes in her roles as Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood and playing the lead in made-for-TV movie The Courageous Heart of Irena Sandler. “It’s very flattering and a great honour,” Paquin said. “I’m very happy with what I have. If anything else comes of it, that’s wonderful, but it’s really wonderful already.” The roles are vastly different — in True Blood, which is based on the Southern Vampire Mysteries novels by Charlaine Harris, she plays a telepathic waitress in small town Louisiana. Meanwhile, she takes on the part of a Polish social worker who smuggles Jewish children to safety during World War II in The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler. As defending champion in the drama-series actress category, Paquin will compete with The Closer’s Kyra Sedgwick, Damages’ Glenn Close, Mad Men’s January Jones and The Good Wife’sJulianna Margulies.
