The Master Gets Three Oscar Nominations - 2013-01-10
Just a quick afternoon post to acknowledge that Paul Thomas Anderson's movie, The Master, garnered three acting Oscar nominations today. (But PTA himself, and his film, got snubbed for Best Director and Best Picture.)
Joaquin Phoenix was nominated for Best Actor for his role as Freddie Quell, Philip Seymour Hoffman was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for playing the L. Ron Hubbard analog Lancaster Dodd (the Master), and Amy Adams received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in her role as the Master's wife, Peggy Dodd.
You know what this means — even more media attention aimed at the film and its relationship to the early days of Scientology. Oh, the fun.
