As we all know, award season has arrived, and I for one cannot wait until the 84th Academy Awards. All of us here at Heartland will be cheering on the seven Truly Moving Picture Award winners that have been nominated in 16 different categories!
In the technical categories, Jane Eyre received a Best Costume nomination for the amazing time period costumes. Puss in Boots saw some love picking up a nomination in the Animated Feature category. However, leading the pack of TMPA winners is War Horse (word play!) with a total of six nominations, including Best Picture. War Horse better watch his tail though (it’s just too easy!), because Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and The Help are also nominated in the Best Picture category.
In addition to The Help receiving the Best Picture nomination, it is also looking at three performance nominations, including Best Actress honors for Viola Davis.
Viola Davis isn’t the only actor looking at honors though! We also have three nominees in the Best Supporting Actor category: Nick Nolte (Warrior), Christopher Plummer (Beginners) and Max von Sydow (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close).
Join me on February 26 for the live broadcast of the 84th Academy Awards as I tweet with you throughout the evening!
