Chilean director Pablo Larrain is celebrating his two nominations for the upcoming Golden Globes Awards 2017.

 Larrain appears on the list of nominations for "Jackie," with Natalie Portman nominated as Best Drama Actress and for "Neruda," as Best Foreign language film.

Pablo, who has had a lot of success in Latin America with films like "The Club" (nominated last year), about pedophile priests, and "Post Mortem," about Augusto Pinochet’s 1973 coup, is really committed to his job and has been working very hard to get into Hollywood.

The movie "Jackie" has reached popularity and very good reviews after its premiere last week. This Biopic narrates the life of the first lady of the United States Jackie Kennedy. On the other side, "Neruda," which is clearly a possible winner for the Best Foreign Language Film category, tells the story behind government’s hunt of poet Pablo Neruda. 

Pablo and Gael García Bernal (who plays Neruda) have been promoting the film in the US. During a recent interview with "El Guardian," Pablo confessed his concerns about war and Donald Trump. "Do we need another war to bring peace and respect? We are just not able to understand each other. It’s very scary and very weird," he explained.

The Latin presence on this year awards is very low despite all the possible options.

The Golden Globes will be aired live on January 8, on NBC and will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon.
