Michelle Williams sipped a coffee while Matilda munched on a snack as the mother daughter duo took a walk in chilly Brooklyn yesterday. The ladies have Winter ahead of them, but there are plenty of sunny things to look forward to in 2009. Michelle scored a lead actress nomination for an Independent Spirit Award, with Wendy and Lucy and her film Synecdoche, New York earned an ensemble cast nod as well. Last night Michelle got her award season started at the Gotham Awards in NYC, and also made time for her man Spike. Hopefully with a hard year behind her, Michelle can spend the rest of 2008 enjoying Spike and Matilda and preparing for good things to come.
