Jessica Chastain: Oscar nod is 'bittersweet'

Feb 19 2013, 10:27am CST | by

Jessica Chastain's Oscar nomination was ''bittersweet''.

The 31-year-old actress claims it's ''crazy'' her 'Zero Dark Thirty' director Kathryn Bigelow failed to receive a nomination for the 2013 Academy Awards' prestigious Best Director category, and although she is looking forward to the ceremony this weekend (24.02.13), she feels terrible she might pick up the Best Actress gong while Kathryn goes unrecognised.

Jessica told Digital Spy: ''We made this movie in multiple locations with over 100 actors, a massive crew, sometimes we were filming under very intense, very difficult circumstances and she never broke a sweat.

''She is a captain in every sense of the word. She is a great filmmaker, and it was a bittersweet moment to receive my Oscar nomination because to hear that she wasn't nominated was like a dart in my heart.

''My performance is so much because of Kathryn Bigelow.''

The sentiment was echoed by the CIA thriller's producer Megan Ellison last month when she took to Twitter in an angry rant to defend the film, which recounts the decade-long manhunt for Osama Bin Laden.

She posted: ''Kathryn Bigelow was robbed. So f****d up.#recount''.

'Zero Dark Thirty' is up for a total of five awards including Best Picture, but Kathyrn - who became the first female to win the Best Director statue for 'The Hurt Locker' in 2011 - lost out to Michael Haneke, Ang Lee, Steven Spielberg, David O. Russell and Benh Zeitlin in the category this year.

The contenders will battle it out for the win at the ceremony on February 24.

New INSTERSTELLAR Poster Will Not Be the End of Us

Sep 16 2014 8:54am CDT | Source: Collider

Warner Bros. and Paramount have released a new Interstellar poster online.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.”  Like the teaser poster, the tagline is a mix of fatalism and optimism, and I’m curious to see if that will mirror the tone of the picture.  As for th ...
