2012 Satellite Award Nominations


Well this is a bit more fun.

Yes, all the familiar faces are here, but the Satellite nominations are peppered with some rather more exciting choices in the form of Emilie Dequenne, Samantha Barks and Eddie Redmayne. Whether this is set to be one of a small selection of nominations for the actors is yet to be seen, as is whether The International Press Academy will favour their more obscure choices over the current frontrunners. Either way, it makes an interesting read and it’s exciting to see Les Mis leading the way when there’s only just over a month to wait for us UK folk, now.

The winners will be announced on December 16th, so check out the full list of nominations below, minus all the TV stuff:
