Podcast: Flashback – Kathleen Turner


As we continue our 80-day countdown to the 80th anniversary of the Golden Globe awards on January 10, 2023, we look back on 1985, the year that Kathleen Turner won her first Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical, opposite Michael Douglas in Romancing the Stone.

In a special Rewind edition of the Golden Globe Around the World podcast series, we hear the five-time nominated actress talk about that role, that award and her incredible history with the Globes beginning 40 years ago with her first nomination as Best New Star in Body Heat.  She won her second Golden Globe starring with Jack Nicholson in Prizzi’s Honor (1986) and she was also nominated for two more – Peggy Sue Got Married (1987), with Nicolas Cage, and War of the Roses (1990), reuniting her with Michael Douglas. 

We take a listen back to her conversation with HFPA member Michele Manelis about her legendary career.
