They didn’t nominate Glenn Close for Albert Nobbs (only one nomination for Janet McTeer)
George Clooney is also snubbed
Midnight in Paris almost shut out.November 29, 2011 at 9:19 am #44763
I don’t get why Dominic Cooper for The Devil’s Double was not nominated here.November 29, 2011 at 9:22 am #44764
I guess that the descandents is that asloved as we all thought, I mean no win for George Clooney at NYCC and no nom at Indie SpiritsNovember 29, 2011 at 9:45 am #44765
Surprised by the Midnight in Paris! and Glenn Close and George Clooney snubs. Woody Allen didn’t even get noinated for Screenplay! And also surprised by the unenthusiastic rection from this and Gotham awards towards MMMM. I guess we should start removing it from our predictions lists.
Really happy to see Stoll getting nominated!November 29, 2011 at 11:00 am #44766
Between these and the NYFCC award for Brooks, this has been a great day for Drive. I wish I thought it could last, but I’m thrilled to at least have one day to celebrate.
Corey Stoll is all kinds of awesome. Loved him in Midnight in Paris. He’d be on my personal ballot, so far.
Wish Gordon-Levitt had made it for 50/50 or Ewan McGregor for Beginners, but that’s a solid grouping for Best Actor. Maybe Clooney wasn’t independent enough for them.November 29, 2011 at 11:10 am #44767
Lauren Ambrose huh?!November 29, 2011 at 11:10 am #44768
I could have sworn there is a budget restriction for these awards. This could be why some films didnt make the list of nominees.
I’ll have to check it out.November 29, 2011 at 11:11 am #44769
I don’t get why Dominic Cooper for The Devil’s Double was not nominated here.
Not eligible since it was a Belgium-Netherlands coproduction with zero American ties.
It’s the same reason Colin Firth wasn’t eligible last year – this is for best American independent films, not best English-language independent films.November 29, 2011 at 11:12 am #44770
There were A LOT of snubs here (and with the NYFCC). So far awards season isn’t as predictable as I thought it’d be. Let’s hope it continues.
I have no idea how the Spirits are going to vote this year. Will there be one film that sweeps? (I doubt it).
It seems like every category has 2-3 nominees that have strong shots of winning.November 29, 2011 at 11:23 am #44771
Looks like between this and NYFCC, it was a good morning for ‘Drive’ in general, especially Brooks. I’m bummed that JGL was snubbed for ’50/50′, though, as I really thought he’d be a sure thing. Happy that ’50/50′ received noms for Best Feature and First Screenplay for Will Reiser which was well deserved, and that somewhat surprising nod for Anjelica Huston. And despite ‘MMMM’ getting several snubs, I’m very happy that it received noms for Olsen and Hawkes.November 29, 2011 at 12:18 pm #44772
what a terrific supporting actor lineup.November 29, 2011 at 12:21 pm #44773
I’m excited for Dee Rees, Adepero Oduye & Harmony Santana nominations.November 29, 2011 at 12:29 pm #44774
Well, I’ll take a shot at “Melancholia” being in the International Film race.
I hope von Trier wakes up from his self-induced coma and makes a film like “Independence Day”. No worries; he can cast an entire crew of depressed Will Smiths.
I’m not particularly anxious to see ANY clips at Oscar for this film, and I hope this animal-abusing, self-stroking director has a different kind of revelation about life, and himself.
Lol! So I detest this guy’s work.
