2013 Satellite Award Nominations Topped by '12 Years a Slave' with 10 Noms

2 December 2013 8:02 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

12 Years a Slave continues to be the leader in the clubhouse when it comes to nominations. After leading the Spirit Award nominations it now leads the International Press Academy's (Ipa) 2013 Satellite Award nominations with a total of ten noms, followed by American Hustle and Gravity, each with eight nominations.

As you can see there are several nominations in each category, leaving pretty much no stone unturned. I guess you could say no nomination for Octavia Spencer (Fruitvale Station) is a surprise and, in my personal opinion, with such a large field of nominees I'd like to see Joaquin Phoenix (Her) get a nomination, but that certainly isn't going to be a film for everyone even though Arcade Fire was »

Olivia arrives at the offices, to be faced by a new important client – Mary Nesbitt – who looks set to help the business out of the financial hole it’s currently in. They soon discover that Mary’s son, Chris, was killed in an FBI raid over a year ago over being involved with a »
