Xavier Dolan considered for a Golden Globe nomination

Already Canada’s official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars, Xavier Dolan’s J’ai Tué Ma Mère (I Killed My Mother) is now in the running for a Golden Globe nomination. 

J’ai Tué Ma Mère is one of 69 films in the running for the Globe’s Best Foreign Language Film, and it’s the only Canadian entry on the list. See the complete list here — the final five nominees will be chosen on Dec 15.

It’s been a big year for Quebec gay filmmakers: Dolan has already picked up awards at Cannes, and Émile Gaudreault scored a huge box-office hit with his cop-buddy comedy De Père en Flic.

fab magazine associate editor Matt Thomas caught up with Dolan at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. Check out the video below:

J’ai Tué Ma Mère is slated for wide theatrical release across Canada in February 2010.
