Frank Langella on the big 'Frost/Nixon' controversy

Posted on

With five Golden Globe nominations, largely enthusiastic reviews, and strong early box office, Frost/Nixon has certainly emerged as a top Best Picture contender. I personally was mesmerized by it when I saw it in October, though I must admit I felt a little deflated when I found out how much of the film was not a recreation of actual events but instead was invented (however brilliantly) by writer Peter Morgan. I expect others to level that criticism against the movie as the awards season goes on. In the meantime, I put the question to newly-minted Globe nominee Frank Langella; see his answer in part 2 of our OscarWatch interview.
