C&I Cover Guys Are Going For Gold
Memo to Hollywood celebrities: Want a better shot at a Golden Globe nomination? Then get yourself on the cover of Cowboys & Indians.
Seriously: Leonardo DiCaprio appears (alongside Django Unchained co-star Jamie Foxx) on the cover of our January issue.
And just a few days after that issue hit newsstands, he picked up a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture.
Remember when Kevin Costner appeared on our cover back in July? Well, he, too, was among the honorees Thursday when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced nominees for the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards.
Costner was nominated as Best Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, to honor his outstanding performance in Hatfieds & McCoys. That acclaimed History cable channel production also nabbed a nomination as — what else? — Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.
Django Unchained amassed a total of five Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture-Drama, Best Director (Quentin Tarantino) and Best Screenplay (Tarantino). Co-star Christoph Waltz also received a Best Supporting Actor nod.
By the way: You might be able to take advantage of the Cowboys & Indians mojo even without actually appearing on the cover. Just ask Nashville stars Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, who were nominated in the TV Drama categories for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively, after simply having their photos run inside the magazine. Not incidentally, their series also is up for the Best Dramatic Series prize.
Hollywood, take note.
