The Videovision Entertainment acquisition, VICE written and directed by Adam McKay and starring Christian Bale has garnered eight Academy Award® nominations in the categories Best Picture; Actor in a Leading Role (Christian Bale), Actress in a Supporting Role (Amy Adams), Actor in a Supporting Role (Sam Rockwell), Directing (Adam McKay), Original Screenplay (Adam McKay), Editing (Hank Corwin) and Makeup and Hairstyle (Greg Cannom, Kate Biscoe & Patricia DeHaney).
The Academy Award® nominations come on the back of the Golden Globe win for Christian Bale in the Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) category, and six BAFTA Nominations for Best Actor (Christian Bale), Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell), Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adams), Best Original Screenplay (Adam McKay), Best Editing (Hank Corwin) and Best Make Up & Hair (Greg Cannom, Kate Biscoe & Patricia DeHaney).
VICE is the story of Dick Cheney, the most powerful US Vice President in history, and how his policies changed the world as we know it. VICE explores the epic story about how a bureaucratic Washington insider quietly became the most powerful man in the world as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
Sanjeev Singh, Videovision Entertainment’s Head of Acquisition and Distribution commented, “We are thrilled with the eight Oscar nominations received by VICE. It is one of the best satires with fantastic performances from Christian Bale as Dick Cheney and Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush to Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney, as well as the exceptional writing and direction from Oscar winner, Adam McKay. VICE has already won twenty one international awards and we hope that its winning streak continues at the BAFTA’s on 10 February and at the Oscar Ceremony on 24 February.”
VICE will be released in South Africa on 1 February 2019 through United International Pictures (SA).
