Shame and Michael are getting amazing reviews, I can't wait to see it.
can´t wait to see Shame movie... tough i´m really sad Carey Mulligan didn´t come to Venice
Congrats to Michael!
Congratulations to him! Maybe the full frontal nudity pleased some of the jury members?
i'm so happy he's finally getting some recognition for his work. he truly is a great actor. I'm finally seeing both shame and a dangerous method this week, i had to skip venice this year and it's depressing but at last i'll see the movies soon
He'll probably get Oscar recognition for his performance in Shame, no?
I'd love to see him make the Oscar rounds.
He's so handsome!
it makes me so happy that he´s finally getting the recognition he deserves! an Oscar nomination would be just perfect!
There's no reason he shouldn't get awards recognition this season. On top of winning at Venice, he had notable breakthrough roles with Fish Tank and Hunger and this year he's got a good CV of other film roles of late to back up his work in Shame. Awards voters tend to take notice when there's an awards worthy performance backed up with other good roles at the same time. He's had good reviews for X-Men, Jane Eyre and A Dangerous Method. It all counts, it just stands for them to put the right buzz behind the right role, so I hope they go for Shame and not A Dangerous Method, which is so much more the obvious Oscar role.
You think? This film seems too...controversial and dark for the Academy.
Does Shame have an NC-17 rating? I can't remember if I read that somewhere. Someone I know saw it at the TIFF yesterday. Said it was very good, especially Michael but that there is ALOT of nudity in it and that it's very dark.
I think if they're careful about the way they pitch it, ie; he plays an addict, it just happens to be sex he's addicted to rather than turning round to the Academy and going 'he's a sex addict, there's lots of sex, it's all about sex!, then I don't see why not. I certainly haven't heard anyone at either Venice or here in Toronto wonder whether it will be too much for Academy voters. Perhaps the Baftas will warm to it more than the Oscars, that can often be the case, they're better at going left field. Of course, if they could translate the buzz from Shame towards A Dangerous Method that might be a plan as well. It's a wide open year awards wise at the moment, I don't think we're going to see someone pull ahead so early as Colin Firth did but there's a lot of competition this year.
On a side note, after spending time with him in Venice, I bumped into him here and got a hug. Without fail, every year there's one person I end up bumping into at virtually every festival and end up just having random hugs with in hotel lobby's. (For the record I don't lurk in hotel lobby's hugging people, it's just a rather wonderful perk of doing what I do!)
It may not even have a rating yet? If it's not NC-17 the Blue Valentine producers/director/team will stroke out.
Blue Valentine eventually didn't get an NC-17 rating. There's no doubt Shame will get an NC-17, however.
I think so too, unfortunately. ^^^^
Steve McQueen is f***ing brilliant and he deserves more attention, and I can't wait to see Shame. I've loved Michael since Hunger, so glad to see him getting so much recognition.
On a purely superficial note, he's looking a little...hmmm...less ripped??(for lack of a better word)
Please Michael, do a sister a favour, and go back to this!!! Preeeeeety please!!!
