Synopsis: A prying neighbor, a glassy-eyed drug dealer, and a husband brandishing both a weapon and a vendetta make up the welcome wagon in Director Joachim Back's darkly satirical short film, "The New Tenants." Set amidst the as-yet-unopened boxes and the hopes for a fresh start of two men on what might be the worst moving day ever, their new apartment reveals its terrifying history in a film that is by turns funny, frightening, and unexpectedly romantic.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Vincent was finally recognized by the Academy? Even if it is for a short film?

Now I definitely will be watching the Academy Award show this year!

What great news! Bravo to Vincent and to all involved.
Now if we could just get to see it...

I hope. I wish. But somehow I doubt. If your face doesn't fit. If they ignore you for FMJ and TWWW.

If the Emmys don't recognise you in The Subway or various LOCI episodes.

What hope is there anyway?

Val, I completely agree. But then I remember that line Hope Springs Eternal.
I would love to see him at the awards ceremony, but I'm not holding my breath for that, either.

I think Paul Newman was over 60 when he finally won his first Oscar, after being nominated numerous times. I hope Vincent doesn't have to wait that long!

SnarkAngel said...

Also, we have to remember ... the nomination is for the film, not for his individual performance ... correct?

That's right, SnarkAngel.
