Satellite Award Nominees

2011-Satellite-Awards-The-Descendants-wins-best-picture

Away from the controversy over whether the International Press Society members actually saw WOLF OF WALL STREET before voting (hello tick box theory…), this year’s Satellite Award noms read as little more than the IPS’ Oscar predictions – give or take an extra three or four names in each category for comfort. Naturally resulting in a very uninteresting list, 12 YEARS A SLAVE leads the pack with ten nominations, followed narrowly by GRAVITY and AMERICAN HUSTLE’s eight.

With strong turnouts in the acting categories, it’s surprising to see LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER, DALLAS BUYERS CLUB and NEBRASKA not contending for the big prize, and the IPS will surely find themselves in the minority for omitting Will Forte for his turn in the latter, even if it is rewarded for Best Ensemble. Though not appearing in the acting, directing or Best Picture categories, FRUITVALE STATION is still very much a focal point, winning an Honourary Award for director Ryan Coogler and Best Breakthrough for Best Actor Oscar dark horse Michael B. Jordan.

The Satellite Awards also include a hefty amount of television nominations and you can see them in full here. The 18th Annual Awards will be held in Los Angeles on March 9th.
