We are recognizing Universal Studios’“First Man” by Damien Chazelle. Starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy. Our Hollywood Film Tributes recognize films and talent for their excellence in the art of filmmaking.
“First Man” is a biopic of Neil Armstrong, arguably the world’s most famous astronaut. Gosling plays Armstrong, while Claire Foy portrays his wife Janet.
Academy Award® winner Damien Chazelle most recently wrote and directed the musical LA LA LAND, which earned fourteen Oscar nominations, winning six awards, including Best Director for Chazelle, who is the youngest director to receive the award.
The film also won a record-breaking seven Golden Globes, and was also honored with five BAFTA wins and eleven nominations. His previous film, 2014’s Whiplash, received five Academy Award nominations and three wins, including Best Supporting Actor for J.K. Simmons. His 2013 short, based on the Whiplash screenplay, won the Short Film Jury Prize at Sundance, and the following year the feature film took home both the Jury and Audience Awards from the festival.
Chazelle made his first feature, Guy And Madeline on a Park Bench, as an undergraduate student at Harvard University. The film was named one of the Best Films of the Year by The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, LA Weekly, The Village Voice, and others. Upcoming in TV, Chazelle has a musical drama The Eddy for Netflix, and a straight-to-series order for a drama series for Apple which he will direct and executive produce.
