Variety has reported that Anne Hathaway, Jeremy Strong, Anthony Hopkins, and Tovah Feldshuh will be vying for the Supporting Actor and Actress categories at the Academy Awards for the movie Armageddon Time.
While Hathaway plays one of the movie’s main characters, Universal moving Michelle Williams to Lead Actress for The Fabelmans made Focus Features consider putting Hathaway in the Supporting category, which she could have a better chance of being nominated for. The actress won an Academy Award in 2013 for her supporting performance as Fantine in Tom Hooper‘s Les Misérables.
Releasing on October 28, the James Gray-directed movie was well-received from movie critics, including our editor-in-chief Joey Magidson who saw the film at Telluride and said that it’s Gray’s most emotional work yet:
“Clearly an autobiographical work, it’s also his most emotional movie. The filmmaker has a lot on his mind, but keeps a strong focus at the same time. For a film that intertwines antisemitism, racism, class status, when your view of the world begins to shift in youth, and even features the Trump family, there’s never a sense that he’s bitten off more than he can chew. If anything, it’s just more material that his excellent cast can sink their teeth into.”
