Jackie will expand to more movie theaters across the USA next weekend, and to celebrate, what better than to see a couple of new great stills of the film. Here they are:
Fox Searchlight has uploaded on its Youtube channel a couple of short clips of the movie. In them, we can see the fascinating conjunction of the images with Mica Levi´s soundtrack. Enjoy:
Taking advantage of this news break in Natland these last two days, we are going to collect some tidbits about the Pablo Larrain´s film.
-First of all, Natalie continues to receive several awards from various critics associations: Washington, Dallas, Chicago, Las Vegas, Phoenix Circle and Kansas are the associations that have given recognition to the work of Natalie in the movie so far.
–Fox 2 Channel has another of the many interviews that Natalie has given on the occasion of the premiere of Jackie, this time for Kevin’s Reel World:
–Rolling Stone has an interesting interview with Pablo Larrain on how faced the challenge of directing two very different biopics such as Jackie and Neruda.
-Noah Oppenheim, screenwriter of the film, talks in Variety on the Limits of Dramatic License in ‘Jackie’.
-Finally, a curious note: Reese Witherspoon has published in her twitter account a message praising Natalie’s performance and encouraging the audience to see the film.
Before Jackie’s intense promotional campaign began in September, Natalie did the same with her directorial debut four months ago. On August 19, she attended a special screening of A Tale of Love and Darkness at Sunshine Cinema in New York, and finally here we have the complete video of the later Q&A, with a great image quality and perfectly edited. Enjoy:
Natalie attended the Huading Global Film Awards in LA tonight. This event dishes out honors to talent from all fields of entertainment, from stage theater to film, pop music to TV, and even traditional Chinese opera. The Huading Awards were founded in 2007; the nominees are selected by committee and the winners are chosen by popular vote over the award show’s website and other Chinese internet portals. Along with Natalie, other of the winners of this year are Bryce Dallas Howard, Hilary Swank, Mel Gibson and Sylvester Stallone. Zimbio and Daily Mail have a lot of photos from the event. These are just a few of them:
Following the recent nominations of Natalie at the Golden Globes and SAG, Fox Searchlight releases a new featurette, centered on the famous White House Tour seen in the film. We can also watch new TV spots. Presumably, in the coming weeks the expansion in more theaters and US cities will be more than likely…
Natalie has been nominated in the category of best female actor in a leading role for “Jackie” at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, alongside Amy Adams, Emily Blunt, Emma Stone and Meryl Streep. It’s difficult, but if Natalie wins here, she would be the first actress to win twice in this category in the entire history of the SAG awards (They started in 1995); it would be amazing…
This is Natalie’s reaction to the nomination:
I am very grateful for the recognition of my peers with this morning’s SAG nomination. I loved making Jackie so much, in large part due to the incredible actors our great director Pablo Larrain assembled. Greta Gerwig, Peter Sarsgaard, Billy Crudup, John Hurt, John Carroll Lynch, Richard Grant, just to name a few, brought such inventiveness and honesty to every moment. Pablo gave us so much freedom and inspiration to play. And that combination allowed us to show Jackie through the many different relationships she had, in many different lights.
The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, January 29.
More good news: Natalie has been nominated for Best Actress in the drama category at the Golden Globes. Unfortunately, it’s the only nomination that the film has achieved, but presumably the movie will have more options in other categories in future guild & Oscars nominations.
The ceremony will be held on January 8, and will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon.
Los Angeles Times has a brief statement, in which she expressed her gratitude:
“I’m so honored to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,” she said. “I had such a beautiful experience making this film with the most wonderful cast and crew, and particularly with our great director, Pablo Larrain, that it feels like icing on the cake to be nominated.”
Natalie has won the Best Actress Award at the Critics’ Choice for her portrayal of Jackie in Pablo Larrain’s film tonight. The movie also won two other awards: best costumes and makeup. Here we have a few photos from the gala, and a video where she is totally emotional with her family:
Natalie and Benjamin attended the L.A. Dance Annual Gala at The Theatre at Ace Hotel tonight in Los Angeles, California. Among others, Nicholas Britell and Robert Pattinson were in the gala and after party. Zimbio and Daily Mail have a few photos from the event:
Palm Spring Life has an interview and cover story with Natalie. It’s the official magazine of the cinema festival in this city, where she will receive a special award at the gala held on January 2:
