While here in the US we’re anticipating the upcoming Oscars, awards season is already underway here and around the globe. Just yesterday evening, the winners of the Evening Standard Film Awards were announced in London, and more than one “Potter” veteran was honored.
The Oscar nominations yesterday were rather overshadowed by the sad news that actor Alan Rickman had passed away. Nonetheless, despite the sad day, we were glad to see that there were some familiar names among the nominations.
We’re certainly in the thick of awards season at the moment – just yesterday, we learned about the Producers Award nominees, and today it’s the turn of BAFTA, the British Academy Film and Television Awards. The nominations were announced this morning by Stephen Fry (British audiobooks) and actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Belle”, featuring Tom Felton).
It’s a new year, which brings new roles and new beginnings for many of our favorite “Harry Potter” cast members. This week, see how Domhnall Gleeson’s career has blossomed over the past couple of years, what David Tennant is up to this January, and fangirl over the confirmed cast for “Bridget Jones’s Baby”. All of this and more in MuggleNet’s weekly Role Call!
The Producers Guild Awards are fast approaching. We learned last year that David Heyman (the producer of “Harry Potter” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”) would be receiving a special honor at the awards.
In an interview with the “Daily Beast”, Domhnall Gleeson (Bill Weasley) talks about the philosophy of acting, his character in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, and how 2015 turned out to be a dazzling year in his career, among other things.
Great news for the TV adaptation of “The Casual Vacancy” – it’s been nominated for a Writers’ Guild Award.
It’s good news for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” actor Colin Farrell (Graves), who’s been nominated for Best Actor at the British Independent Film Awards for his role in “The Lobster”. The film, which was released last month, is nominated in a total of seven categories at the awards.
