Congratulations to "Made in NY" Oscar Nominees

The “Made in NY” film Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is nominated for Best Picture (executive producer, Scott Rudin) as was actor Max von Sydow for his supporting role as the Renter. 

Margin Call, about a crisis at a financial firm, was nominated for its original screenplay, written by J.C. Chandor, who also directed the film. The project shot on location in the City during the summer of 2010. Additionally, Hugo received a nomination for Best Film Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker). The film, which takes place in Paris and was filmed in the UK, was edited in New York.

A number of New Yorkers also received nominations for their work in various other projects, including: Woody Allen (Best Director, Midnight in Paris), Glenn Close (Best Actress, Albert Nobbs), Martin Scorsese (Best Director, Hugo), Meryl Streep (Best Actress, The Iron Lady) and Michelle Williams (Best Actress, My Week with Marilyn).

In the documentary and short film categories, a handful of New Yorkers also earned nominations. Locals Marshall Curry and Sam Cullman were nominated for Best Documentary Feature for their film If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front while Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky received a nomination for Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory. New Yorkers Rebecca Cammisa and Julie Anderson (God is the Bigger Elvis) and James Spione (Incident in New Baghdad) were each nominated for Best Documentary Short.

Historical Oscars and other memorabilia have been on display at Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central from February 22-26 as part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ annual exhibit. Visitors have the opportunity to have their picture taken with an Oscar as well.

Over 100,000 New Yorkers work in film and television production. NY is the birthplace of film and television technology. 2011 was a record year for film and television production in New York City. The entertainment industry is approximately a $5 billion industry in New York City. 

“New York City is the entertainment capital of the world and is poised to be the digital media capital of the world." Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
