MONTREAL, Jan. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Telefilm Canada warmly congratulates
Adrien Morot on his Oscar nomination in the Makeup category for Barney's Version.
"We are proud to have partnered with Robert Lantos and the entire team
on this project since the beginning. It is a pleasure to congratulate
Adrien Morot on his nomination," said Carolle Brabant, Executive
Director of Telefilm Canada. "This great Canadian story has touched
audiences around the world - a testament to the great talent both in
front of and behind the camera."
Barney's Version has been collecting honours on both sides of the border, most recently
when Paul Giamatti won the Golden Globe for best actor in comedy or
musical for this same role. Mr. Giamatti was also named best actor in a
Canadian feature by both the Toronto Film Critics Association and the
Vancouver Film Critics Circle. The film won the 'Leoncido d'oro' when
it premiered at the Venice International Film Festival.
Barney's Version, a coproduction between Canada' Serendipity Point Films and LYLA Films
Inc. and Italy's Fandango, was financed through Telefilm Canada's
Feature Film Fund. Directed by Richard J. Lewis and written for the
screen by Michael Konyves, Barney's Version is the touching story of the life of the impulsive and irascible Barney
Panofsky. The film is distributed by eOne Films in Canada.
On November 2, 2010, the Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian
Heritage and Official Languages, hosted a special screening for
Parliamentarians in Ottawa of the film.
