Will Smith's Golden Wake Up Call

Actor Will Smith was nominated for a Golden Globe, and he got the great news from his wife Jada Pinkett Smith in the form of a wake up call. Will Smith is up for best actor in his new film The Pursuit of Happyness where Smith plays a homeless man struggling to raise his son (played by the Smiths' own son, Jaden). I can’t wait to see this film, just the trailer alone brought tears to my eyes.

"I woke him up this morning and told him," Pinkett Smith told People. “For him, it's not that awards are extremely important, but it's nice to have some recognition from your peers. These are people who watch lots of movies that think he did a good job, so he's excited." She added, "We all are. It's a good time for our family."

Smith said of his nomination, "I couldn't be more honored. This film has been an extraordinary experience for me and my family, and having the opportunity to work alongside my son Jaden was one of the great joys of my life."
