It’s great to win an award, but it’s also, as the saying goes, nice to be nominated. And last Sunday’s Golden Globes presented a slate of interesting names, from both winners and also-rans. So while others are still parsing the performances, fashion, gags and gaffes, we’re presenting the Nameberry Awards for what we consider the 12 best names from the Golden Globes -- all winners to us. (And now that the Oscar noms have been announced, there will be even more grist for our mill.)
A winner and a loser, Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu won for his "Birdman" screenplay but lost out to "Boyhood’s" Richard Linklater for best motion picture director. Alejandro is one of several romantic Latin forms of Alexander; we also love Alessandro and Alessio.
