25th Satellite Awards Nominees for Motion Pictures and Television Announced
By Mirjana Van Blaricom
Los Angeles, CA – The International Press Academy (IPA) today announces its nominations for the 25th Satellite™ Awards in Motion Pictures and Television, along with Special Achievement Award Recipients.
View the nominees here.
The IPA was first to change the category Foreign Films to International Films over a decade ago and created a separate category for Animated and Mixed Media in Motion Pictures. It should be noted that other major awards shows have subsequently added similar changes.
The International Press Academy selects the Satellite™ Awards nominees from domestic and international submissions in 35 categories: 22 Motion Picture and 13 Television categories. Nominations are derived from advanced screenings, worldwide film festivals (including BAFTA, Cannes, Sundance, Telluride, TIFF) as well as from screeners to journalists and/or sanctioned lists available by the stated deadline.
One of the primary goals of the IPA and its Satellite™ Awards is to celebrate new works from both established and developing independent filmmakers, giving them access to the widest audience from around the globe.
Despite this difficult time of confinement for our members throughout the world, we believe we have come up with a comprehensive and representative list of nominees, and the winners will be announced on February 15.
