This week, Studio 360 follows the ever-evolving Sherlock Holmes, who jumps off the pages of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle into the modern world as children’s lit’s Encyclopedia Brown and TV’s Dr. House.

To get in the Holmes mood, I listened to hours of the 1940s radio drama, New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. After each episode, I had a hankering for a glass of fine wine, sherry, or port. The culprit? Perhaps it’s the subtle mention of Petri products during each story. Or perhaps it’s because Petri Family Wine sponsored the show each week. Or perhaps it’s the cringe-worthy segues between show and advertisement, like this one:

2009 has been a banner year for Hollywood – and with yesterday’s announcement of the Golden Globe nominees, it’s officially awards season.  Before you watch the nominees work the red carpet (and, perhaps, get tipsy during the broadcast), hear how they got there in the first place.

Check out Kurt’s candid conversations with some of the nominees about being (and staying) creative in Hollywood.


Kathryn Bigelow was nominated for Best Director for “The Hurt Locker” (which is also nominated for Best Picture and Best Screenplay)


Jason Reitman’s also up for Best Director for “Up in the Air” (which is also nominated for Best Picture and four other awards), based on the book by Walter Kirn.


Marvin Hamlisch was nominated for his killer score for “The Informant!


Gabourey Sidibe was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for her break-out performance in “Precious.”


And coming up…

James Cameron was just in the studio to talk about his new movie “Avatar” – listen for that interview this weekend.  And later this month, we’ll talk to David Shore (creator of the nominated TV series “House”) about his hero’s not-so-secret resemblance to Sherlock Holmes.

See the full list of nominees HERE.
