Academy Award® Winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, I Am Love) has today been nominated in the Best Actress (Drama) category at the 2012 Golden Globes, to take place in LA in January.

Also a winner at the 2011 London Film Festival for Best Film, We Need to Talk About Kevin stars Academy Award nominee® John C. Reilly (Magnolia, Boogie Nights) and a truly mesmerising performance from Ezra Miller (City Island) as the titular Kevin.

The awards will be presented on January 15 at a star-studded ceremony hosted again by Ricky Gervais.

In We Need to Talk about Kevin Eva (Tilda Swinton) puts her ambitions and career aside to give birth to Kevin. The relationship between mother and son is difficult from the very first years. When Kevin is 15, he does something irrational and unforgivable in the eyes of the community. Eva grapples with her own feelings of grief and responsibility. Did she ever love her son? And how much of what Kevin did was her fault.
