Apple received a surprise TV Plus Oscar nomination, with Brian Tyree Henry running for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Causeway, a feature film starring Jennifer Lawrence.
In Lilla Neugebauer’s Causeway, already Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence returns from a tour in Afghanistan after suffering a severe and debilitating brain injury caused by an IED explosion. It’s a drama starring Lindsay, a military engineer.
The story follows Lindsey learning to walk and remembering things and returning to New Orleans. After her truck breaks down, she accidentally meets James Aucoin (Brian Tyree Henry), who offers her a ride home.
Dealing with his own past, “The budding friendship of these two broken souls forms the heart and center of Neugebauer’s debut feature — a quiet but devastating and ultimately uplifting, reconciliation.” It’s a story that moves forward.”
The nomination comes as a surprise to Apple, which was not expected to endorse this year’s nominations.
Apple received another nomination in the Animated Short Film category for “The Boy,” “The Mole,” and “The Fox and the Horse.”
The news seems to be a bit of a throwback to reality after CODA won Best Picture in Apple’s groundbreaking 2022, making Apple TV Plus the first streaming service to win the honor. increase.
With an Oscar nomination in the bag, Causeway sounds like it’s probably one of the best Apple TV Plus movies we’ve yet to see. Apple also won Best Supporting Actor last year, with CODA’s Troy Kotsur becoming the first deaf male actor to win the award.
