Hold on to your hats– awards season has started already. We’re still months away from Oscar nominations and Golden Globes and all that, but the nominees for the first major awards show of the season were announced today, with 12 Years A Slave walking away as the big winner.
The Gotham Independent Film Awards, which will be handed out on December 2, routinely honor some of the most adventurous and low-profile independent films of the year, but this year they went in for some star power as well– 12 Years A Slave is a Fox Searchlight release starring Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt among others, and the Best Feature nominees also included the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, the Richard Linklater threequel Before Midnight and the Rooney Mara-Casey Affleck-starring Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Rounding out the Best Feature category is Upstream Color, from indie wonder Shane Carruth– like Midnight and Saints, it was a sensation at Sundance earlier this year.
Adding Best Actress and Best Actor categories for the first time this year, the Gothams singled out several Oscar hopefuls– Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew McConaughey and Robert Redford can all expect many more nominations from here out– but also some surprises, including a nod for Isaiah Washington in the grim indie Blue Caprice and for Scarlett Johansson’s bawdy work in Don Jon. The Breakthrough Actor category, which includes both genders, included a range of familiar faces (comic actress Kathryn Hahn, who turned lead with Afternoon Delight, and future Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Dane DeHaan) along with newcomers, like 12 Years A Slave’s breakthrough star Lupita Nyong’o, who made her screen debut in the film.
Hello everyone! I’ve added a new theme here and in the gallery! Hope you like it! Thanks Ray for the theme base!
While promoting his new film, “12 Years a Slave,” at the Toronto Film Festival, Brad Pitt was asked whether or not a sequel to “World War Z” was in the works.
“We’re certainly talking about it, yes,” he told Variety.
“World War Z,” one of the highest grossing films of 2013 and Pitt’s most successful movie ever, was the recipient of bad buzz early prior to its release but, in a reversal of fortune, went on to earn a whopping $533 million at the worldwide box office.
“We have so many ideas on the table from the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how the zombie worlds work,” Pitt said in a new interview with Variety.
“We gotta get the script right first to determine if we go further.”
Based on the 2006 novel by Max Brooks, the zombie blockbuster underwent a complete rewrite and reshoot of the third act, hiking up the budget to nearly $200 million but “World War Z,” insiders say, ultimately prevailed thanks to an aggressive marketing campaign and positive reviews.
Paramount is said to be leaning on Pitt, whose company Plan B produced the film, to make another feature as the “World War Z” property was initially envisioned as a three-part franchise.
“We have so many ideas and so much information–we think we have a lot of stuff to mine from,” Pitt said.
Mireille Enos, who is in Toronto promoting her new film “Devil’s Knot,” told Variety said she’s on board 100% for the sequels.
“We’ll wait and see how the script turns out but yes, I’d love to come back.”
As for whom will write the second “World War Z” script remains to be seen.
Until then, Pitt next co-stars in and produces Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave,” out in limited release Oct. 18.
