5 Golden Globe nominees who grew up in the suburbs
A number of suburban natives who took off to follow their dreams in Hollywood woke up to good news Thursday morning: Golden Globe nominations.
Here are the former suburbanites whose work received nods Thursday:
John Walker -- This producer from Elgin's latest film, Disney-Pixar's "Incredibles 2," is up for best animated feature.
Melissa McCarthy -- The Plainfield native, a previous nominee in the comedy category for "Spy," moves to the best actress in a motion picture drama field for "Can You Ever Forgive Me?"
Dede Gardner -- "If Beale Street Could Talk" won't open locally until later this month, but the film delivered a best drama nomination for its producers, including Winnetka's Gardner.
Rachel Brosnahan -- The Emmy winner, who grew up in Highland Park, snagged a Golden Globe nod for best actress in a TV comedy for Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."
Alex Borstein -- Brosnahan's co-star and fellow North Shore product (she lived in Deerfield as a child) earned a supporting actress nomination for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."
The nominees will have to wait until Jan. 6 to see if they can add the title Golden Globe winner to their resumes. The show will air on NBC.
