Magic Touch

The Golden Globe nominations were announced today. And, Canuck director Jason Reitman’s latest film, Up in the Air, is in the lead with a whopping 6 nods including Best Drama, Best Actor (Clooney), Best Supporting Actress (Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga), Best Director (Reitman), and Best Screenplay (Reitman and Sheldon Turner). Even more impressive is the fact that this is only Reitman’s third feature. But he’s had the magic touch since the beginning—his first two earlier flicks were Juno and Thank you for Smoking.—Alexandra Breen
