BREAKING NEWS–FINDING NEVERLAND earns 7 Critic's Choice Award nominations, including BEST ACTOR for Johnny Depp!

This morning the Broadcast Film Critics Association announced their nominations for the tenth annual Critic’s Choice Awards. FINDING NEVERLAND received seven nominations:

FINDING NEVERLAND, Best Picture

JOHNNY DEPP, Best Actor [But OF COURSE!]

KATE WINSLET, Best Supporting Actress

MARC FORSTER, Best Director

DAVID MAGEE, Best Screenplay

FREDDIE HIGHMORE, Best Young Actor

FINDING NEVERLAND, Best Family Film (live action)

Huzzahs and congratulations to all the nominees, and thanks to Gilbert’s Girl for posting the story on the News & Views forum. The Critic’s Choice Awards ceremony will be January 10th at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, and it will be broadcast live in the U.S. on the WB television network.

Zoners have fond memories of last year’s Critic’s Choice Awards broadcast, when PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN won for Best Family Film (live action), and Jerry Bruckheimer summoned Johnny to the podium to accept the award with him. FINDING NEVERLAND is nominated in that category this year; if it wins, will Harvey Weinstein follow Jerry’s example? We hope to see several trips to the podium for members of the FINDING NEVERLAND ensemble. Awards? We love awards! Drinks all around . . . .
