CHARLOTTE RAMPLING HONORED WITH
SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARD® NOMINATION
FOR HER PEFORMANCE IN THE SUNDANCE CHANNEL ORIGINAL MINISERIES, RESTLESS
New York, December 12, 2012 – Charlotte Rampling was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award® today for her performance in Sundance Channel’s critically-acclaimed original miniseries, RESTLESS (which premiered earlier this month). Rampling received her first SAG nomination in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries. The two-part miniseries (the second installment will air Friday, December 14th at 9 PM et/pt), directed by Edward Hall and penned by celebrated novelist William Boyd based on his novel of the same name, tells the thrilling story of a daughter who discovers that her mother was recruited as a spy during World War II.
Well, the Oscars got something right. Though they overlooked Sundance 2011’s other top doc HOW TO DIE IN OREGON, HELL AND BACK AGAIN is on this year’s shortlist.
Director Danfung Dennis documents the story of 25-year-old Nathan Harris, a Marine Corps sergeant who was severely injured in Afghanistan. The film follows his recovery and transition back to life back home in North Carolina. Cut jarringly with Dennis’s own footage from behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, HELL delivers a violent jolt back home. This winner of Sundance’s World Cinema Jury Prize and World Cinema Cinematography Award is still in theaters, so if you haven’t seen it yet, go now.
We couldn’t be more excited, unless we happened to be Edgar Ramirez, that is. After being recognized as both a SAG and Golden Globe nominee, the CARLOS star is getting a little bit of Emmy love.
Gold Derby senior editor Rob Licuria reports, “‘Carlos’ leading man Edgar Ramirez has already contended for SAG and Golden Globe awards for his audacious portrayal of the notorious fugitive Carlos the Jackal. Now, as the focus of the Emmy campaign by Sundance Channel, he is a frontrunner for Best TV Movie/Mini Actor.”
