'Mandela's' Lack Of Awards Down To '12 Years' Guilt Hoover, Suggests Screenwriter


Nelson Mandela Idris Elba Steve McQueen Chiwetel Ejiofor

‘12 Years a Slave’ was, rightfully, the recipient of huge praise and numerous awards. The remarkable story of Solomon Northrup - portrayed by Chiwitel Ejiofor - was masterfully directed by Steve McQueen. But that success, suggests screenwriter William Nicholson, was to the detriment of his film, ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom'

Nicholson said ’12 Years’ "sucked up all the guilt about black people that was available” adding that he thought ‘Mandela’ “worked superbly," but Americans “were so exhausted feeling guilty about slavery that I don't think there was much left over to be nice about our film. So our film didn't do as well as we'd hoped, which was a bit heartbreaking."

Steve McQueen Chiwetel Ejiofor Michael Fassbender Lupita Nyong'o

As one of the biggest, most critically acclaimed and most decorated films of 2013, 12 Years a Slave was always going to be a big DVD release, but someone working for the supermarket chain Sainsbury’s perhaps got a little bit too enthused, dressing up a mannequin in clothes similar to those worn by Chiwitel Ejiofor and his co-stars in the hard-hitting slave drama.

It didn’t take long for a shopper to see the hugely distasteful promotional stand, take a snapshot on their phone and upload it to Twitter for the world to see. The mannequin – which appeared at a branch in Oxford – was clad with a ripped, loose fitting beige shirt and three quarter-length trousers. The worst part – a twig protruding from the shirt.

So Here's Why '12 Years A Slave' Writer Snubbed Steve McQueen At The Oscars [Video]


Steve McQueen John Ridley

Did it not cross your mind that, when John Ridley won the Oscar for best adapted screenplay on Sunday (March 2, 2014), he was sat nowhere near the rest of the '12 Years a Slave' team and bypassed director Steve McQueen to hug American Hustle filmmaker David O' Russell?

Ridley did not mention McQueen in his acceptance speech and the director hardly rose to his feet when the screenwriter took the award. Later in the evening, when 12 Years won Best Picture, McQueen failed to mention the man that wrote the movie deemed the best of the year.

Brad Pitt Steve McQueen

Brad Pitt never expected to win an Oscar. He said as much during Sunday night’s Governor’s Ball. Speaking to E! News, Pitt said: “"I don't know where I'm going to put it. I never thought I'd take one home, so I haven't thought that far in advance.”

The cast of 12 Years say the film couldn’t have been made as it is without Pitt’s reach and influence in the film industry. For his part, however, the producer is most grateful for McQueen’s director, as he said in his acceptance speech. "Thank you all," Pitt said in his acceptance speech.

Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie Steve McQueen Lupita Nyong'o Ellen Degeneres

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie once again made sure all eyes were on them at last night's Academy Awards as they led the Hollywood royalty down the red carpet whilst looking very much the loved-up pair.
