"The Fighter" and the Golden Globes

Regular readers of this site know that we have a deep interest in the movie, "The Fighter" which is the story of Lowell boxer Micky Ward. The movie was filmed here in Lowell during the summer of 2009 including several scenes right here in the courthouse in which the registry of deeds is located. This past Sunday night at the Golden Globes award ceremony, "The Fighter" won two awards. Christian Bale was named Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Ward's half-brother, Dick Ecklund and Melissa Leo won the Best Supporting Actress award for her role as Alice Ward, Micky's mother. With such a good showing with these awards, interest is building for the Academy Awards in March. Over time, I've created a Google Map Mashup that identifies various spots around the city that were used in the filming of the movie. Here it is:
