When Harvey Weinstein landed scattered awards nominations during the past few years, some -- especially Weinstein himself -- touted a comeback.
This time, it's more real.
With eight Globes noms between "The Reader" and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," Harvey and Bob Weinstein scored their best post-Disney performance and bested all specialty units and mini-majors. (Miramax and Fox Searchlight had seven noms apiece.)
Weinstein typically would capitalize on a slew of Globes nominations with aggressive campaigns and heavy spending. While the company certainly doesn't have the war chest it did at Disney or even in its early days, most believe money for this campaign won't be a concern.
"Now that Harvey is buoyed by the Globes, he's got to campaign 'The Reader' and see how far he gets," one insider said.
