Helena told the Daily Mail she was was “thrilled” that she’d received what she termed a “menopausal nomination”.
She said: “I’ve got a menopausal nomination at age 44 and it feels marvelous. At my age you don’t expect an Oscar nomination. What’s exciting is that people are connecting to the film all over the country. People in Brixton (south London) and all over are giving it a standing ovation and people come up to me and say, ‘You made me cry’.”
Helena watched the nominations at home in London with her two children. “I was with the little ones on the sofa and and they both went ‘yeah’! And that about sums it up”, she added. She said she was very surprised for herself but delighted for Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush. “t’s their bromance, it’s about the two of them”, she said.
HOORAY! Helena has been nominated for her second Oscar! The King’s Speech is the most nominated film of the year, and has been nominated for an impressive twelve Oscars, with Helena up for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. She will be up against the likes of Amy Adams and Melissa Leo. The nominees are as follows:
• Amy Adams, The Fighter
• Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech
• Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
• Melissa Leo, The Fighter
• Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom
Other nominations for The King’s Speech are:
• Best Picture
• Best Actor in a Leading Role
• Best Actor in a Supporting Role
• Best Director
• Best Original Screenplay
• Best Editing
• Best Art Design
• Best Costume Design
• Best Sound Mixing
• Best Original Score
• Best Cinematography
In addition to The King’s Speech, three other films that Helena has appeared in have been nominated for awards! They are: Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I and The Gruffalo.
Colin Firth is the favourite to win the Academy Award this year, and it will be very well deserved in my opinion and I hope that Geoffrey Rush will win in his category, too. Currently, the media have no firm favourite for Best Supporting Actress, but fingers crossed that it will be Helena! Good luck to everyone!
A brand new advert for the charity Save the Children has been released featuring clips of celebrities including David Beckham and Nelson Mandela, and narrated by Helena Bonham Carter.
The spot was filmed in villages supported by Save the Children in Lindi, Tanzania. It features a group of young children watching a series of magical projections of famous people including David Beckham, Albert Einstein, Nelson Mandela, Usain Bolt, Muhammad Ali and Darcey Bussell.
The ad is voiced by actress Helena Bonham Carter, who says “We are all born to dream, born to achieve, born to discover. Some are born to be the fastest, the greatest, or simply the bestest. But while some are born to grow old and wise, many more will never grow up at all”.
As you all know, the nominations for this year’s Academy Awards will be announced tomorrow, and it looks very likely that Helena will be nominated for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in The King’s Speech. We have been contacted by PopSugar and they have told us that they will be streaming the live coverage of the nominations!
The nominations will be announced tomorrow (January 25th) at 1:30pm GMT (UK time). The video is below, currently it is just a static image, but when the event starts, you will see a live feed of PopSugar broadcasting the announcement as it happens. Fingers crossed that she gets nominated!
Recently Helena’s IMDb page has been updated with a brand new rumoured project. The film is entitled Chronicle, but not much is known about it. Helena is rumoured to be playing the character of Miss Molly, alongside Kate Mara, Justin Long and Ryan Phillippe.
It’s also being rumoured that Mickey Rourke, Kate Mara, Danny Masterson and Vincent D’Onofrio are all circling various roles within the project as well.
Chronicle is about two childhood friends (Phillipe and Long) who reunite to launch the biggest marijuana dealership in New York City.
Jay Alaimo (Slingshot) is attached to direct, and filming is rumoured to start in March. We will keep you updated with any information we find.
