Oscar Nominee Reactions

“It’s a huge honor for the film but I am most excited for my long-time collaborators (over 20 years) Sandra Adair and Ethan Hawke and for our new, well not so new, partners Cathleen Sutherland and Patricia Arquette. I am also very thankful to Jonathan Sehring and everyone at IFC Films for their tremendous support, to my good friend John Sloss and to everyone else who worked on the film. I am especially thankful to the young actors Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater without whom there would have been no movie and who became wonderful young adults in the process.”
-Writer/Director/Producer Richard Linklater, Academy Award Nominee for Best Picture, Achievement in Directing and Original Screenplay for BOYHOOD

“Well, this is surreal. I am completely knocked out. Thank you to the Academy for this incredible honor. I am very proud and lucky to be a part of Birdman and can’t believe it came to this. I am so f***ing excited. Are you allowed to say f*** when you’re making a statement for the Oscars? I’m just really f***ing excited.” –Emma Stone

“I’m incredibly honored to be nominated for editing BOYHOOD. To see the film get this kind of recognition is very humbling. I feel privileged to have been a part of Richard Linklater’s team on this incredible twelve year journey.”
– Editor Sandra Adair, Academy Award Nominee for Achievement in Film Editing for BOYHOOD

“I’m completely humbled. Being a part of Chris Nolan’s passion to push the envelope and bring the medium to new levels has been an epic experience.”
-Gary Rizzo, Best Sound Mixing Nominee, INTERSTELLAR

“When you have the creative insight of Christopher Nolan and the many talents that our team brought to the table it was a stimulating collaboration that I was honored to work on.”
-Gregg Landaker, Best Sound Mixing Nominee, INTERSTELLAR

“INTERSTELLAR’s nomination for Best Visual Effects is a great honour for us and sets a wonderful seal of approval on the amazing work from all the artists in our visual effects, special effects and miniature effects teams. We couldn’t be more excited!”
-Paul Franklin, Best Visual Effects Nominee, INTERSTELLAR

“Without a shadow of doubt, the score for INTERSTELLAR was Chris and I at our most collaborative. Even in this modern world of texting and emailing, sometimes all you need is a simple, type-written letter from your director to spark what undoubtedly became one of the most personal scores I’ve ever written. Chris and I make movies family-style – so much of the film’s music was written with our children in mind, and that’s what makes this honor by the Academy really special. This is as much his score as it is mine.”
– Hans Zimmer, Best Original Score Nominee, INTERSTELLAR

“As kids growing up in Canada and Iowa, Chris and I both dreamt of becoming Disney animators. Never could we have imagined that, one day, we would get to make a film like Big Hero 6, and that one day, the film and all of the talented artists who made it would be recognized by the Academy. Roy, Chris and I are deeply honored by the nomination and thank everyone at Disney Animation who made this possible.”
– BIG HERO 6 Director Don Hall, on behalf of himself, Director Chris Williams and Producer Roy Conli

“It’s a great honor and I’m glad to be representing UNBROKEN, but in the end I’m just happy to be given the opportunity to work on the films that I do and to work with such inspiring directors like Angie. Making this film was a great joy with an enormously talented group of people.”
