Midnight In Paris also received several other nominations, including Best Original Screenplay and Best Director.
Gil Birmingham's Rango (he voiced the character "Wounded Bird" for the film), meanwhile, was nominated for Best Animated Feature. That's about as good as it can get with these animated pictures, so congrats to Gil and the wholeRango team.
Next up, actor Demian Bichir was nominated for Best Actor for his work in Summit Entertainment's A Better Life - a film which was directed by The Twilight Saga: New Moondirector Chris Weitz. Last summer, during our fansite interview with Weitz, he stated:
"I don’t want to make any assumptions or to get a big head or to get too excited about things except to say that I think that the awards buzz for Demian is really well-deserved. I think it’s an extraordinary performance by an extraordinary actor, and if there was anyone who deserves to get recognized for this, it’s Demian. So yeah I see it as my job to get him nominated at this point."
Howard Shore, score composer for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, has also been nominated for Best Original Score forHugo.
Finally, there were a few technical nominations for Twilightcast films as well, including Best Costume Design forAnonymous (which stars Xavier Samuel and Jamie Campbell Bower) and Best Makeup for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (which features Bower).
