The Descendants scoops five Academy Award nominations in the following categories: BEST PICTURE, BEST DIRECTOR – Alexander Payne, BEST ACTOR – George Clooney, BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY – Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, BEST FILM EDITING – Kevin Tent! It may have not been as successful as it was in previous awards but this is the big one the Oscars and just getting nominated for even just one category is a great achievement but 5 nominations is a great sign of the quality of this film!
“There’s no denying that Oscar nominations for one’s film are exciting, if only for the joy they give to everyone who worked so hard on the film. I’m particularly happy for the recognition of my long-time editor Kevin Tent. He really deserves it.” – ALEXANDER PAYNE
To celebrate the nominations and the upcoming release this FRIDAY, we are pleased to make available two new assets: a featurette entitled “Shooting Style”, which is an in depth conversation with George Clooney and Alexander Payne, and the humorous clip: “Who Is He”. HE DESCENDANTS opens in UK &Ireland this, Friday January 27th, already out State side, and also co-stars Shailene Woodley, Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard, Beau Bridges, and Robert Forster.
