Well I was wondering when the Oscar buzz would start, and who better to kick it off than veteran master Nic Roeg?
Unfortunately Hallam Foe won't actually be eligible for an Oscar because movies have to be released in the States before November to qualify. So no Oscar noms for us - this year!
Who knows what might happen in 2008...

Here here! Bring on 2008 and that US release!! zomg-seems forever away LOL Are y'all screening at Sundance in January by any miracle?
As for awards,I have no idea on how all this works, but if they are going by the critics, Jamie, David and the film are sure to get something! There are the BIFA and BAFTA things Hallam Foe can qualify for this year right? Go Hallam Go :)

good grief, but I completely suck and can't spell-hear hear!
I dont suppose there will be a big release event planned for the US like there was for the UK? It would be awesome to see y'all over here for that.

dear david mackenzie,
it`s obviously very hard now to top nic roeg`s praise,but i shall try nevertheless:o) i saw hallam foe in berlin this year,where i live and always work during the festival. it touched me profoundly and i have been wanting to write to you ever since,but somehow haven`t managed. it`s beautiful and honest and funny and also incredibly sad. what i loved most is that a lot of the things hallam does, one would probably find quite revolting in an other film. but here,what he does simply has to be and is free from anything sick or twisted,it`s just him and he is so loveable. if you ever come to berlin,you are very welcome to come and visit,i shall bake you my famous death-by-chocolate-cake as a thank you for this film:-) all the best from germany, anja
