The actor had previously been in the running for best supporting character
With the start of the new year, nominations for Hollywood actors are coming. With the Golden Globes coming soon, here’s the latest from the bunch.
Stanley Tucci, whose appearance in Harry McQueens Supernova was rejected by the Academy as Best Supporting Actor in Films and moved to Best Actor in the Film (Drama) category. His co-star Colin Firth was also added to the list.
More about the film
The film, which shows Firth and Tucci as romantic partners who have been together for twenty years, is about the two who travel around England to visit friends, family and important places from their past. Tucci’s character was diagnosed with dementia early on, so they decide to make the best use of the remaining time.
The rights to the film were brought to Bleecker Street for distribution in North America. It’s CEO Andrew Karpen that they did this after seeing the movie and seeing the beautiful and timeless love story that McQueen created. McQueen also wrote the script for the film. The film was produced by Emily Morgan of Quiddity Films and Tristan Goligher of The Bureau. The executive producers are Eva Yates, Mary Burke and Vincent Gadelle.
Bleecker Street had promoted the actor to the supporting category since it was released. But the nominations for Leading Actor were stacked, so his chances of getting a nomination seem pretty slim. However, the studio submitted it for the SAG Awards, so Tucci has a better chance of winning a nomination.
The Golden Globe nominations will be announced on Wednesday, February 3rd.
