Our Summer 2016 film season enjoys Oscar success29 February 2016
As Hollywood sleeps off the effects of last night’s Oscar parties here at The Spring we’re basking in the glory of knowing our forthcoming film season is full of award winners. Our summer 2016 film season, announced today with the publication of our new season brochure, features no fewer than five Oscar winners and 25 nominations.
The big winner at the 88th Academy Awards was undoubtedly The Revenant, giving Leonardo DiCaprio his first Oscar for Best Actor and also scooping the award for Best Cinematography. In addition to winning two of the prestigious statues the film also won nominations in nine other categories. You can watch The Revenant at The Spring on Wednesday 27 July.
The Danish Girl, which we’re screening on Wednesday 6 July, received four nominations, including Best Actor for Eddie Redmayne’s portrayal of transgender artist Lilli Elbe. In the end it walked away with Best Supporting Actress for Alicia Vikander, a well-deserved win for her performance as Lilli’s wife.
The Best Actress award went to Brie Larson for her role in Room, which you can see here on Wednesday 20 July. Despite only winning one Oscar it received the most important nominations for Best Director and Best Picture.
Although it didn’t win the film Steve Jobs, showing at The Spring on Wednesday 1 June, celebrated two nominations with Michael Fassbender nominated for Best Actor in the title role and Kate Winslet for Best Supporting Actress.
The other film that was nominated but didn’t end up with a statute was Carol. Nominated for four awards including Best Supporting Actress for Rooney Mara, Best Costume Design, Best Cinematography and Best Original Score the film narrowly missed out to others, and this was described by The Guardian as ‘baffling’. We’re screening Carol on Wednesday 29 June so you can judge whether you agree then.
Finally, after screening Amy here in February as the first of our Film Fridays, we were delighted that it won Best Documentary.
We hope you enjoy watching these Oscar hits here at The Spring over the next few months.
