Oscar Nominations for Gay Themed Movie

By Charlotte Robinson, January 25, 2011
The Oscar nominations are OUT & "The Kids Are All Right" held their own in 4 top categories including Best Picture, Best Actress Annette Bening, Best Supporting Actor, Mark Ruffalo & Original Screenplay Lisa Cholodenko & Stuart Blumberg. Missing was a Best Director nom for Lisa Cholodenko. This is Annette Bening’s 4th nomination so as Hollywood goes her chances of winning are good. We’ll just have to wait 34 days for the event on Sunday, February 27th, @ the Kodak Theatre & broadcast live on ABC. Anne Hathaway & James Franco will co-host. Updates to Come :) When watching "The Kids Are All Right" we couldn’t help notice that Bening’s character Nic reminded us so much of Kate Clinton we thought she must have watched her perform or studied Kate’s comedy DVD’s. We recently talked to Kate about the film & this uncanny portrayal in our exclusive audio byte:

We wanted to make a film about a marriage in midlife, at a low point, the things you don’t see in most movies about what families look like behind closed doors. In a deeper analysis, especially after the DGA nominations came out, you wonder how much of people’s taste is about a style of filmmaking that might be in vogue right now — quick-cutting, thriller aspects, special effects. The films that are front and center right now are very much genre films. My film relies heavily on psychological character study.
