Gold Standard

Spirit Awards boost 'Moonrise Kingdom,' 'Silver Linings' momentum

November 27, 2012|By Glenn Whipp

Another Sundance fave, Ava DuVernay's tough-minded drama "Middle of Nowhere," garnered four nominations, including for the John Cassevetes Award (best feature made for under $500,000) for DuVernay. Perhaps the most notable of its honors was the female lead nod for Emayatzy Corinealdi, who also picked up breakthrough actor honors at the Gotham Awards. One can sense  the 32-year-old Corinealdi picking up the kind of momentum that Demián Bichir achieved last year with the class-struggle drama "A Better Life." Bichir's Spirit Award nod was a springboard to nominations from SAG and the Oscars. Could Corinealdi do the same? It’s early. Which means there’s always hope.
