article imageIPA hands 'Birdman' 10 nods; Canada lands with 'Mommy'

By Tim O'Brien     Dec 1, 2014 in Entertainment
The International Press Academy (IPA) has given "Birdman" 10 nominations which were announced today as award season is kicking into gear. These are known as The Satellite Awards.
"The Imitation Game" was next with eight nominations, while “Boyhood,” “Gone Girl,” “Whiplash” and “Selma” also received multiple nods. Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" was not screened in time. That is noteworthy considering some controversy last year when films were nominated yet not screened.
Last year “The Wolf of Wall Street” got several nominations yet rumors swirled that IPA members had not seen it. With “Into the Woods" this year, they clarified. In their own release, they explained."Members see films that may not specifically be shown for IPA members, like “Into the Woods,” but Universal Studios didn’t make Angelina Jolie’s pet project “Unbroken” available for screening, so it is absent from the nominees, said Mirjana Van Blaricom, IPA president, to the Hollywood Reporter.

As award season plays out, these reports will often point out trends and not worry as much about the snubbed, etc. part of the nominations. These have 10 in the feature film category, and the Oscars can have up that many ,too.
It is now starting look like momentum is building for Marion Cotillard. Also, "Mr. Turner" is making waves as is "Love is Strange." Earlier today, the New York Film Critics named Cotillard Best Actress for “Two Days, One Night” and “The Immigrant.”
Perhaps their is a groundswell building for Robert Duvall in "The Judge" as he gets in with a bad movie. Plus, "Boyhood" is solid and may get more acting nods along the way now, and not just with Patricia Arquette. Ethan Hawke's nominations may help that here. The usual suspects are in the acting gategories but Jake Gyllenhaal in "Nightcrawler" and David Oyelowo in "Selma" will open some eyes.
The awards also feature TV and more. In all, there are 38 categories: 19 in Motion Pictures, 13 in television, two in Blu-ray DVDs and four in video games.
The 19th Annual Satellite Awards will be handed out on Feb. 15, 2015 in Beverly Hills, CA.
