Sandra Bullock - Gravity Spin-off Poised To Make Oscars History

A short film made as a companion piece to Sandra Bullock's sci-fi blockbuster Gravity could make Oscars history next year (14) if both projects are nominated for Academy Awards.

Gravity is already a clear favourite to land a nod when the Oscars shortlist is announced, and now spin-off Aningaaq, which was directed by filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron's son Jonas, has been put up for consideration in the Live-Action Short category.

If both projects are shortlisted, they will be the first feature and spin-off to be nominated in the same year.

Aningaaq is set in Greenland and recreates a scene from Gravity, in which Bullock's character Dr. Ryan Stone, who is lost in space with no transmission to Earth, is given a glimmer of hope when she contacts a male Inuit.

In the feature, Bullock attempts to explain her dire situation, while being comforted by the sounds of a barking dog and a crying baby.

The seven minute spin-off, which was shot for Gravity's Dvd release, revisits the scene from the Inuit's perspective.

Gravity, who co-stars George Clooney, has already pulled in over $535 million (£356 million) at the global box office since its release in October (13).
