Gotta love them! They said huge fuck you to category frauds. Vikander, Cotillard and Courtenay in leading category as they should be. If only other awards bodies did the same. Oh, and Redmayne is snubbed. See? Vikander is the standout here, it’s another reason for her to go leading.November 3, 2015 at 3:06 am #197105
I’ve not even seen half of the nominees, but the list looks so strong to me.
Filled with great films that are on my list to watch. It just makes me want to watch them all now!!November 3, 2015 at 3:25 am #197106
Shame that none of the actors from Ex Machina got nominated.
Other than that it looks like a good list, though there’s still quite a few of them I haven’t seen yet. Nice that Gleeson Sr. and Jr. are competing against each other!
Lol that there are 3 Toms in Best Actor. That could be tense. “And the winner is Tom……..”
Redmayne not getting nominated doesn’t mean a thing Oscar-wise.November 3, 2015 at 4:03 am #197107
Loving the Ex Machina love, but I’m a little saddened over the Oscar Isaac snub. Still a great lineup of films and actors, though. It’s pretty cool that we have 3 Toms in the Best Actor category and of course, Fassy!!! This Macbeth nod should build into the prolific year he’s having with Macbeth, Slow West, and of course Steve Jobs.
SLAY FASSY SLAY!!November 3, 2015 at 5:33 am #197108
Also loving the Ex Machina love while bemoaning its lack of acting recognition. Though hurray for not going with the Vikander fraud for Danish Girl.
Nice to see Anne-Marie Duff get a nomination for Suffragette. Wasn’t too big on the film, but she and Mulligan were easily the standouts for me.
And it’s great that an excellent documentary like Amy can receive praise here in places aside from the Documentary category.November 3, 2015 at 6:13 am #197109
I’d like to point out that Carol is now, essentially, 2 for 2 in its precursor notices. Granted, Gotham and BIFA aren’t as influential as some of the yet-to-come awards, but the fact that it’s been noticed in both for the top prizes that it qualifies for is major.
I’m still predicting a blow out where Carol sweeps through everything toward an inevitable Best Picture win.November 3, 2015 at 9:32 am #197110
I read elsewhere that Alicia Vikander’s nomination was for Ex-Machina and not The Danish Girl (which I belive was not considered an independent british film)…. pretty sure that is correct?
Thrilled for all the Amy love! Unusual to see a documentary do so well – I don’t think any movie this year has moved me so deeply, with the possible exception of Room (:
I wish Tom Hardy’s performances in Legend would get some Oscar traction – hope he wins this award.
Glad they nominated Brendan Gleeson – a real standout in Suffragette – and also Anne Marie-Duff, who was every bit as good as HBC in the same film. It was right that the actors got the nominations as it’s the acting that is memorable in the movie.
I was surprised the Lobster was considered a “Brit indie”?
Looking forward to seeing more of these films here in the U.S. where I live! (:November 3, 2015 at 9:37 am #197111
What differentiates the producer award?
Vikander is indeed nominated for The Danish Girl, per the official website and the major publications.November 3, 2015 at 9:38 am #197112
Nope. Definitely for The Danish Girl. Much talk has been about the success of Ex Machina here, yet nothing for any of its stars. Also, it’s been commented about how Vikander is getting in over Redmayne.
Also, The Lobster was co-backed by Film4 and the BFI. I think that allows for its eligibility as a Brit Indie.November 3, 2015 at 9:44 am #197113
What differentiates the producer award?
Vikander is indeed nominated for The Danish Girl, per the official website and the major publications.
Not sure to be honest. I do know that some nominees on the list for Best Independent British Film aren’t on the producer of the year list.
E.g. while Amy/45 Years/The Lobster are all up for both, there isn’t an exact copy of the honourees. Asif Kapadia (Amy), Andrew Haigh (45 Years) and Efthymus Filippou (Lobster) are all credited in the British Independent Film category, yet not Producer of the Year award.November 3, 2015 at 9:52 am #197114
Prayer circle Redmayne/Danish Girl continues to get passed over.November 3, 2015 at 10:08 am #197115
Bye Redmayne!November 3, 2015 at 10:12 am #197116
Dismissing anyone from the race because they haven’t been nominated for the Gotham or BIFA’s is ludicrous. They aren’t Oscar precursors who chase the top Oscar potential nominees. They recognise smaller gems that boost their profile.November 3, 2015 at 12:00 pm #197118
You can’t dismiss people just because of one small awards group, that’s stupid AF. Strange how they nominated Carol for best film but did not nominate Blanchett or Mara. 4 Noms for Suffragette in acting categories.
Carol is not deemed British, so is only eligible for the International Independent Film Award category, which it has gotten into. Blanchett and Mara aren’t eligible for the acting categories.
