OTTAWA, Jan. 16, 2014 /CNW/ - I was thrilled to learn today that
talented Canadians have been nominated for Academy Awards. Canadian
artists and creators are extraordinary ambassadors of our identity and
culture as they continue to shine on the world stage.
I would like to congratulate all the Canadians who received a
Achievement in Film Editing:
Martin Pensa for Dallas Buyers Club
Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Score):
Owen Pallett and Arcade Fire member William Butler for Her
I would also like to congratulate Canadians Jean-Marc Vallée, the
director of Dallas Buyers Club, which earned several key nominations including Best Picture, and Denis
Villeneuve, whose film Prisoners received a nomination for Best Cinematography.
On a personal note, I look forward to hosting the presentation of Gabrielle on February 25 at the National Arts Centre.
On behalf of the Government of Canada and of all Canadians, I wish the
nominees the best of luck at the upcoming 86th Academy Awards ceremony on March 2, 2014.
