Last-Minute Oscar Campaign for ‘The Immigrant’

Last-Minute Oscar Campaign for ‘The Immigrant’

The awards garnered by Marion Cotillard for The Immigrant have apparently made Harvey Weinstein change his mind as to the promotion of the film as an Oscar contender! It was about time. The movie has so many good things about it, it was silly to not try at all!

The decision was likely influenced by the film’s star Marion Cotillard landing two more best actress prizes (from the Boston Society of Film Critics and the New York Film Critics Online) to a haul that already included a citation from the New York Film Critics Circle and a Spirit Awards nomination. As of Tuesday, The Weinstein Company had added “The Immigrant” to the list of films on its guild and Academy screening website. Two showings of the film will be held in Los Angeles, on Dec. 14 and 16. No screening dates have been announced for any other cities, and Academy voters have yet to receive physical or online screeners.

And the awards keep on coming! As with The New York Film Critics Circle, The Boston Circle awarded Marion the award of Best Actress for both The Immigrant and Two Days, One Night! Seems like it’s a tie for most critics when it comes to Marion’s performances this year! So great! Congratulations to Marion Cotillard for all the achievements so far!

France’s Marion Cotillard was named best actress for two 2014 films in which she appeared: the Dardennes brothers’ “Two Days, One Night,” which will be released to US theatres on Dec. 24, and James Gray’s “The Immigrant,” which opened last February. “Two Days, One Night,” in which Cotillard plays a factory worker desperate to hold on to her job, was also named the year’s best foreign language film.

Hopefully this means we can expect nominations for next year’s Awards!
