Sam Rockwell Moon Oscar Nomination Movement Gains Steam

by Dan Koelsch

While Sony Pictures isn’t doing much to support it’s limited release Moon in the year’s biggest award show, The Academy Awards, there is already a groundswell of support from fans, as we reported earlier in the month. Most of the focus has been on getting the star, Sam Rockwell, a nod for Best Actor.


Well now it seems to be a full-blown movement, with complete websites dedicated to the cause, including one called ManMadeMovies, where you can follow the people’s struggle to get Rockwell his nomination. Whether these ground-up efforts make any dent in Academy voters’ minds remains to be seen. Nomination ballots are due on January 22nd, and the final nominations are announced February 2nd. We’ll see if Rockwell and Moon have a happy Groundhogs Day.


You can support the film by getting the word out. The DVD and Blu-ray release tomorrow, so get it and share it with others, especially if you know an Academy voter.
