Get used to it: TDKR’s Gary Oldman and Tinker Tailor will be all over this years Awards Season
The Dark Knight Rises promo may be all Batman, Bane, and Catwoman, Bale, Hardy, & Hathaway, but the quiet, life-size, hardworking James Gordon still maintains an extraordinary presence, thanks in no small part to the brilliant actor who plays him, Gary Oldman. Oldman is one of the rarities in Hollywood, who will go from starring roles to supporting ones and back again. His latest starring role is in the remake of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, sure to be a darling of the awards season. It begins here, with the American Society of Cinematographers.
We’ve been reporting a lot lately about awards nominations from various movie industry guilds, and with the Directors Guild nominees already out there, we’re pretty much done with the guilds that accurately predict Best Picture nominees. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to pore over the picks by the American Society of Cinematographers, who picked their nominees for their annual Oustanding Achievement Awards, and of course, selected some of the most gorgeous films to be released in theaters in the last year. Here is the list nominees, via Indiewire:
Guillaume Schiffman, The Artist
Jeff Cronenweth, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Robert Richardson, Hugo
Hoyte van Hoytema, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Emmanuel Lubezki, The Tree of Life
Oscar nominations are announced on January 24.
