Sundance-Supported ‘Manchester by the Sea’ Earns 6 Oscar Noms

Nate von Zumwalt

Nominations for the 89th Academy Awards were announced this morning and Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, led all Sundance-supported films with six nominees, including Best Picture and Best Director honors. Casey Affleck earned a Best Actor nomination for his masterful portrayal of Lee, a man whose life of solitude is somehow reignited by tragedy, while newcomer Lucas Hedges received a Best Supporting Actor for his role as Lee’s nephew, Patrick. On the documentary side, three premieres from the 2016 Festival round out the Best Documentary Feature category.
