Golden Globes: Janet McTeer isn't looking forward to dressing up for ceremony

Janet McTeer talks about being nominated for a Golden Globe award

When Janet McTeer got wind of her Golden Globe nomination for supporting actress in “Albert Nobbs,” she was in Luxembourg. And why, exactly?

“I know, what am I doing here? Hiding money?” she said with a laugh. In fact, the 50-year-old British actress had just wrapped production on Margarethe von Trotta’s “Hannah Arendt” in the western European country. Because of her shooting schedule, McTeer has yet to celebrate her good week, which also included a SAG Award nomination Wednesday.

“Are you kidding me? My days are far too long, and I wake up and get into a 1960s hairdo,” she said of her busy schedule. “But since I wrapped tonight, I have every intention of having a glass of something.”

“Albert Nobbs,” which also stars Golden Globe and SAG Award nominee Glenn Close, opens in only a handful of theaters next week. But McTeer is hopeful that the nominations she and her co-star received will help boost the film’s box office receipts.

“I do hope so. We’re a small independent film that hasn’t got 6 million pounds to publicize the thing,” she said.

Meanwhile, McTeer is looking forward to the Globes, when she can spend time with Close — though she’s not looking forward to wearing a fancy gown.

“I absolutely loathe getting dressed up, and so does Glenn. We’re always sure we’ll trip over the back of our dresses and one day we’re going to walk down the red carpet and fall,” she said. “But the older you get, the less nervous about these things you get, because everyone is looking at someone who is 19.”
