Gravity: George Clooney Reacts to Oscar Nominations

by Joel D Amos at January 16, 2014

Gravity was the big winner when Oscar nominations were announced earlier today. The film, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, racked up 10 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron and Best Actress for Bullock. Movie Fanatic caught up with Clooney at the press day for The Monuments Men and we had to ask him about the experience of making Gravity in light of all the love it received today from the Academy. “What an honor,” Clooney said.

He was particularly thrilled for his helmer’s nomination for Best Director. Given the magnitude of the task at hand, the fellow director (Clooney not only stars, but directs The Monuments Men) was astounded at what Cuaron was able to do with Gravity.

“Alfonso Cuaron is one of the great geniuses of the game. He hasn’t made a bad film,” Clooney said. “He has a great love for what he does. I can’t say enough how great it was to work with him.”

Given what had to be done after the cameras finished rolling on Gravity, Clooney was also equally impressed with the performance that Bullock gave. “Man, I’m telling you, we had no idea what was going on. It was two years of post production. It was crazy,” Clooney added.

“Alfonso was doing stuff that they hadn’t even invented yet, in terms of CGI. It was great working with him.”

As you need to expand your mentality, and stop looking at the dark spot in whiteness..

Well, its his usual way to reply to something he really enjoyed doing as far as the opportunity goes. George is a great sport too. Even if he feels a slight bruise at loosing because he had to push MM back to Feb. He isn't going to complain or make noise about stuff that happens as a result, but uses each event as a lesson of one kind or another. He sounded truly appreciative of having been a part of something that has been such a huge success and was not certain at the beginning of it, if it would even work. It turned out exceptionally WELL.

I don't believe that George has had a 10+ film, but there have been other films made that have received 10+ nominations.
