‘Get Out’ Nominated for Five Independent Spirit Awards

The 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards nominations have been announced and Jordan Peele’s completely different but also masterful social thriller Get Out, scored five nods in total including Best Director and Screenplay for Peele, as well as Best Picture, Actor, and Editing.

The Film Independent Spirit Awards hail the very best in independent moviemaking, but they’ve also become an unlikely Oscar precursor in recent years. The last four Best Feature winners in a row at the Spirit Awards have gone on to win the Best Picture Oscar.

Unfortunately, Allison didn’t score a nomination but I am still thrilled to see how well the film has been received.

BEST FEATURE        

  • Call Me by Your Name         
  • The Florida Project  
  • Get Out          
  • Lady Bird      
  • The Rider

New Project: The Perfection

New Project: The Perfection

After the huge success of ‘Get Out’, I was really eager to know what would be Allison’s next project. It was announced a few weeks ago that she will have a role in ‘Patrick Melrose’ but finally, we have news about her next film.

Allison Williams is getting back to the horror genre.

EW has confirmed that the Get Out star will front the upcoming film The Perfection for writer-director Richard Shepard, who she previously worked with on HBO’s Girls.

Beginning production in Shanghai and Vancouver early next year, The Perfection is to follow a pair of cello prodigies bound by a sinister obsession, as reported by Deadline Hollywood, which broke the news of Williams’ casting.

“It’s truly exciting to be reunited with Allison,” Shepard told Deadline. “Our time together during the six seasons of Girls was amazing. I loved watching her grow as an actress, and a person and I was thinking of her the entire time we were writing this movie. I can’t wait to bring a different side of Allison to the screen.”

Though she cut her teeth performing in improv comedy acts while a student at Yale, Williams honed her dramatic skills as part of Girls‘ ensemble cast, later appearing in a small role on The Mindy Project before leading NBC’s televised production of Peter Pan Live in 2014.

Get Out, in which Williams played one half of an interracial couple traveling to the young woman’s foreboding family home, marked her first role in a theatrical release and grossed a massive $175.5 million, on a modest $4.5 million budget.

Allison to Guest Star in ‘Patrick Melrose’

Allison to Guest Star in ‘Patrick Melrose’

It was just announced that Allison will be a guest star in ‘Patrick Melrose’ alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. The show will air on Showtime next year.

Allison Williams has booked her first post-Girls TV gig.

The former star of the HBO comedy will guest star on Showtime’s upcoming miniseries, the Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer Patrick Melrose. Williams is set to join the limited series for one episode as Marianne, an acquaintance that Patrick (Cumberbatch) encounters during his playboy years in New York, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Williams adds her name to an already impressive cast list, as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Hugo Weaving and Anna Madeley have all signed on for Patrick Melrose.

Based on the acclaimed series of semi-autobiographical novels written by Edward St. Aubyn, Patrick Melrose hilariously skewers the upper class as it tracks the title character’s harrowing odyssey from a deeply traumatic childhood through adult substance abuse and, ultimately, toward recovery.

Each of the five episodes, co-produced by Sky Atlantic, is devoted to one of the five novels. The series will encompass the saga of Patrick’s life, from his horribly abusive youth at the hands of his father (Weaving) and the mother who tacitly condones the behavior (Leigh) to the outrageous playboy he becomes and the struggles he endures to defy the damage of his own past. The story will cover periods including the South of France in the 1960s, New York in the 1980s and Britain in the early 2000s.

David Nicholls (Far From the Madding CrowdOne Day) is writing all five episodes, which will be directed by Edward Berger (Deutchland 83Jack). Cumberbatch is an executive producer.

Williams, who starred in Jordan Peele’s breakout summer horror movie Get Out, recently wrapped her run as Marnie when Girls ended its run earlier this year.
