The nominees for the 72nd annual Golden Globe awards were announced on Thursday morning, and once again Jessica received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a motion picture for her work on A Most Violent Year! She share the category with fellow nominees Keira Knightley, Patricia Arquette, Emma Stone and Meryl Streep.
She released a short statement on her twitter after hearing about her nomination:
Today is a great day! Thank you so much to the HFPA for this tremendous honor. It was an absolute pleasure working with J.C. Chandor and my dear dear friend Oscar Isaac on this special film. I’m thrilled to see the work we did together honored. #AMostViolentYear #GoldenGlobes.
Hans Zimmer also received a nomination for Best Original Score, for Interstellar.
The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be held in Beverly Hills on January 11, 2015
Jessica attended last night in New York the premiere for A24’s A Most Violent Year. She was joined by co-star Oscar Isaac, director J C Chandor and producers Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb. I have over 300 HQ pictures of the event added to our gallery:
A new clip for Liv Ullman’s Miss Julie was released. Watch it:
Deadline reported that Game of Thrones’ Kit Harrington will star opposite Jessica on Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F Donovan.
Harington will play the titular American movie star, whose correspondence with an 11-year-old actor living with his mother in England is exposed, prompting ill-founded assumptions that begin to destroy his life and career.
Chastain is attached to play the editrix of celebrity-dishing magazine The Gossip, who targets Donovan as his pen pal relationship is exposed in the public eye.
Dolan did an interview to Indiewire’s Thompson in which he talked about Jessica.
You already have another film in the works, “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan,” which stars Jessica Chastain. She fell in love with “Mommy” at Cannes and now you’re going to work together. I just love that story.
She also so generously talked about “Mommy” in the media and on Twitter. She’s just so generous to me and honest and, you know what, I had been, when we met, seeking actors and let’s be honest, Cannes had not yet happened and that was another ball game. Tthings have changed because there has been more exposure in all of this. When she wrote about “Mommy” on Twitter, I had been reaching out to people, waiting for like a year and a half. At this point when you have such a great artist like her who is not only passionate about acting, but passionate about other people, projects, who is educated, who is excited about all the aspects of filmmaking, and that person wants to work with you, I mean, you instantly want to work with her. And there was this great part, this important part in the movie where I thought I had never thought of her for “it” but it just made so much sense and now I’m just thinking about it every day. We’re going to have so much fun doing this. She’s a mega tricky villain. Like full-on bitch.
She’s great at that, but she hash’t had a real showcase to play bitchy. There are shades of that in “A Most Violent Year,” but it’s a more nuanced role.
I’m a fan of what she does and I can see all that she can do, but she has not played this part. It’s a very specific part. It’s sheer evil.
Dolan also said they’re currently casting for ‘Donovan’, and they will be shooting for 75 days in five different cities.
Jessica was all pretty in pink yesterday while attending a private screening of Interstellar at the WGA Theater in Beverly Hills. I have a few HQ pictures added:
The National Board of Review announced its 2014 winners selecting J.C. Chandor’s crime drama about thuggish New Jersey-New York oil cartels, A Most Violent Year, as best film and Clint Eastwood as best director for his biopic of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, American Sniper. In total, A Most Violent Year grabbed three awards — the most of any title today — including best actor for Oscar Isaac (who tied with Michael Keaton for Birdman) and best supporting actress Jessica Chastain.
In a statement, National Board of Review president Annie Schulhof exclaimed, “A Most Violent Year is an exhilarating crime drama with a compelling story, outstanding performances, and an elegant cinematic style. J.C. Chandor has given us a new and provocative perspective on the American Dream.”
The awards will be handed out on Tuesday, Jan. 6 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. Lara Spencer will host the event.
A new featurette of A Most Violent Year was released, containing new scenes and director J.C. Chandor remarks on how his fantastic cast came together, while Chasten and Oscar Isaac reminisce about attending school together. The video also features some input form the supporting cast, including Albert Brooks, David Oyelowo and Alessandro Nivola.
“A Most Violent Year” hits theaters December 31. Check out the featurette in our video archive.
