2013 Golden Globes: Best TV Movie or Mini-Series Nominees
HBO's The Girl (starring Sienna Miller as The Birds leading lady Tippi Hedren) was so good that it upstaged the similar big-screen feature film Hitchcock that opened shortly afterward (certainly, The Girl's Toby Jones made a better Hitch than Hitchcock's Anthony Hopkins). Still, the movie could be hurt by the controversy over its accuracy (Vertigo star Kim Novak said she never experienced from Hitchcock the kind of harassment that Hedren has implied was standard for the director's blonde leading ladies). Plus, it's up against a stronger HBO project, Game Change. Odds for victory: Fair.
