IPA announces over 150 nominees for Satellite Awards

Posted by · 2:18 pm · December 1st, 2010

I say over 150 because I honestly lost count.  In any case, the International Press Academy has announced it’s slate of nominees for the 15th Annual Satellite Awards, and as usual, every film under the sun seems to have been nominated for SOMETHING.

Actually, not every film.  Obviously the organization didn’t see “True Grit” before the voting deadline, as the film wasn’t nominated for a single thing.  Nor was “The Way Back,” though I don’t know whether they saw it or not.  But “Dinner for Schmucks” and “The Other Guys” are well-represented!  As best I can tell, “Inception” leads the way with 11 nominations.

I think I may have forgotten to post this announcement last year.  I don’t know what kind of stock you might put into the Satellites, but it’s an annual film award announcement nevertheless.  Check out the full slate of nominees at The Circuit.

    They’re hardly the precursor to anything but their pics are always entertaining.

    LOL, they’ve really fallen off the wagon. I remember them being amateurs, but I don’t remember them nominating that many in each category in the past. But then again, these guys seem to made up of a handful of people at best so maybe there were a lot of ties.

    Kris, is it just me or is the Film Editing nom for Please Give completely random? I’m not completely opposed to it, I suppose, but it does stick out like a sore thumb against the rest of the nominees in that category.

    Sad about the lack of The Way Back – I would assume there was no Satellite screening, or whatever method they use to come up with copious nominations.

    The lack of Ruffalo and HBC is weird, but not worrying.

    I honestly got bored reading the noms. That rarely happens. You’re happy to see someone Douglass make an impression, but then after a certain point you are thinking “alright. Wow. Way too many nominations here.”

    By nominating “White Material,” the IPA has officially received a lifetime pardon from me, whatever their other sins.

    And perhaps the lack of a nomination for Helena Bonham-Carter means they actually took the performance (or lack thereof) into account.

    Also, is it me? No Another Year? No Manville?

    And 3 nods for Animal Kingdom!
    Though, WE HAVE TO REMEMBER. Sattellite nominee Debra Messing. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.

    It’s nice that they recognized some true indie and foreign films in the main categories, but that loses all significance when there’s 8 actors in one category (16 if you count the comedy-drama divisions).

    “The Other Guys” being considered a great, or even a good film, is quite frankly an abomination. I’m glad “Scott Pilgrim” got a mention, but some films just don’t deserve to be mentioned at all.

    @11 “Go…everyone?”

    Pretty harsh to The Kids Are All Right, geez. With all those supporting noms, no Mia or Mark or even Josh? Sad.

    And please can we not see Michael Cera or Steve Carrell on any more lists this season?

    And lol at Helen Mirren.

    Where’s Another Year? Where the HELL is Lesley Manville?

    In order to be nominated for the Golden Kitchensink Awards a movie must meet the quality control requirement of being released.

    In addition, there is a second requirement of having a title.

    Hollywood Awards, ear your heart (heart?) out!

    Oh, yes – there is also a second round of voting that involves the patented technology of coin flipping, which cannot be discussed in more detail due to the said patent.

    It’s not random at all, dammit! How could IPE refuse a movie with the title “Please Give”. Clearly they had to give!
