First They Killed My Father is nominated for an Satellite Award in the category, Motion Picture, International. Congratulations to everyone involved and lets just hope they will win!
Christopher Nolan’s war epic “Dunkirk” and Guillermo del Toro’s romantic fantasy “The Shape of Water” were the top nominees for the 22nd annual Satellite Awards, announced Wednesday morning by the International Press Academy.
“Dunkirk” received 11 nominations to top all films, with “The Shape of Water” finishing second with 10. Other films with multiple nods included “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “Lady Bird” with six each, and “Darkest Hour,” “Get Out,” “War for the Planet of the Apes” and “Blade Runner 2049” with four each.
As is its custom, the IPA nominated nearly all the top awards contenders, with the acting categories having as many as eight nominees and all categories containing at least six. The rare omissions included the late-screening film “The Post,” which was named the year’s best by the National Board of Review.
The organization also announced honorary awards to writer-director Greta Gerwig, the cast of “Mudbound” and visual effects artist Robert Legato, among others.
The Satellite Awards will take place on February 10.
