It was one of our favourite films of last year and we’ll have our fingers crossed this Sunday at the BAFTA awards for Duncan Jones who is up for Outstanding Debut and Outstanding British Film.
Jones’ next film, Source Code, got a new cast member today and we’re keeping all available eyes on his post-Moon career.
It’s always refreshing to see a talented team get the recognition so richly deserved and tonight in Marylebone, London the 30th annual Critics’ Circle awards were handed out and Duncan Jones was the recipient of Breakthrough British Film-Maker, as reported by ManMadeMovies.
Jones was up against some impressive talent in this category, in particular Armando Iannucci’s In The Loop and Sam Taylor-Wood’s film Nowhere Boy, both films which have done well critically, and it is a testament to the success of Moon that it overcame these films to win.
As a special treat for those in London on St. Patricks’ Day, 17th of March, Moon was voted as the Jameson Cult Film Club and will be shown in the surrounds of the Royal Institute. HeyUGuys will be there and you should head on over to book your tickets.
And here’s hoping for Sunday night…
