Best Picture: The King’s Speech
Actor: Colin Firth (The King’s Speech)

I thought Roger Deakins had it bad with 9 Oscar nominations but no wins but Kevin O’Connell has had 20 nominations with no wins!

He’s interviewed here on nom 19 (he’s not nominated this year)

Spider

leave a comment »

Blue-Tongue Films are an Australian collective of film makers. They’ve produced a couple of features including Animal Kingdom, for which Jacki Weaver has been nominated for this year’s Best Supporting Actress Oscar. You can find a number of their shorts and other works on their Youtube Channel.

If you only watch one I’d recommed Spider, but they are all pretty much worth a look. Many NSFW.

Podcast interview with the director of Spider, Nash Edgerton about making the short.
