It was unexpected, maybe, because the movie had several nominations but along the night it wasn’t winning any of them.
Best Director went to Richard Linklater for Boyhood.
Best Screenplay went to the several writers of Birdman.
Best Comedy/Musical Actor went to Michael Keaton for Birdman, too.
But when it was time to hear the Best Movie Musical or Comedy we had such a nice surprise…
Here you can watch the moment when Wes and part of the team came to the stage to receive the award.
In case you didn’t know, The Grand Budapest Hotel has became one of the favorite movies of 2014. Not only it has been a success at the box office but it also got tons of good reviews and now, we are in December and everyone is making their balances, the movie appears in several lists of the best movies of the year. Even it is the #1 movie for Time Magazine.
But being at this time the year it also means that the Awards season is just starting. We know that the Oscars doesn’t happen till late February and we don’t know yet which nominations it is going to have, but we can’t expect less than the best for it.
Let me keep you updated with some of them with this graphics made by Fox Searchlight Pictures.
Another from AwardsDaily, this one naming possibly every person involved in the making of the film. I can’t say I’ve ever seen For Your Consideration ads that so fully celebrate the collaboration of everyone involved. Kinda cool. Click on the thumbnail below to view the ad full size.
This one appeared in the December 13th edition of Variety, and given this morning’s news, expect quite a few more before February.
A slight variant on the design of the last one, but this one is our favorite, with a numerical breakdown of all the time spent and people inolved in making the movie. It seems like a real tribute to the crew who worked for so long to make the movie. Click on the image below for a larger version and be sure to read the entire quote from Wes.
Again, this came from AwardsDaily and appeared in the December 5th issue of Variety.
Fox has put out another “For Your Consideration” ad, this one targeting the Golden Globes. Check out the previous ad here, and see AwardsDaily‘s full “For Your Consideration” gallery here. Click on the picture below to view the ad full size.
