’12 Years a Slave’ director, actress to be honored at Hollywood Film Awards
by Carrie Healey | October 1, 2013 at 4:06 PM

12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and actress Lupita Nyong’o are set to take home awards at this year’s Hollywood Film Awards.

McQueen will be receiving the Hollywood Breakout Director Awards and Nyong’o will receive the New Hollywood Award, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The film tells the true story of a free black man, Solomon Northup (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor) from upstate New York, who is deceived and sold into slavery during the mid-19th century.

The highly anticipated film has been generating Oscar buzz since it hit the Telluride Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year.

Richard Corliss of TIME called the film “raw, eloquent, horrifying and essential,” and Paul MacInnes, a critic for The Guardian, said it was “stark, visceral and unrelenting.”

“The movie received several standing ovations at Telluride and looks like a strong Oscar contender, as long as audiences can see its beauty amid the brutality,” wrote John Horn for the LA Times.

12 Years a Slave hits theaters October 18, and the 17th annual awards show will be held on October 21, kicking off this year’s awards season.

The event, held on Oct. 21 at the Beverly Hilton, is the first awards show of the 2013 season. (The Hollywood Film Awards is owned by affiliates of THR parent company Guggenheim Partners.)

Previous recipients of the Hollywood Breakout Director Award include Ben Affleck, Paul Haggis, John Patrick Shanley, Lee Daniels, Michel Hazanavicius and Dustin Hoffman. And previous recipients of the New Hollywood Award include Robert Pattinson, Gabourey Sidibe, Jennifer Lawrence, Felicity Jones and Quvenzhane Wallis.

FILM REVIEW: '12 Years a Slave'

McQueen, 43, is a British filmmaker who has heretofore earned considerable critical acclaim for his first two feature films, Hunger (2008), a drama about an IRA hunger striker which won the Camera d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and Shame (2011), a drama about a sex addict which won several prizes at the Venice Film Festival. (Both of those films star Michael Fassbender, who also plays a prominent part in 12 Years a Slave.)

Nyong'o, 30, is a Mexican-born, Kenyan-raised and Yale School of Drama-educated actress. Heretofore best known as the star of MTV's award-winning series Shuga, a Kenyan-set soap opera, she won the role of Patsey -- a slave who receives particularly unkind attention from her master and his wife -- in 12 Years a Slave shortly after her 2012 graduation from Yale. "It was like finding Scarlett O'Hara," McQueen has said, noting that 1,000 girls auditioned for the part. Nyong'o will next star opposite Liam Neeson in Jaume Collet-Serra's Non-Stop.

12 Years a Slave is a drama based on the remarkable true story of a free black man from the north who was deceived and sold into slavery in the south in mid-19th century America. In addition to Nyong'o and Fassbender, its cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sarah Paulson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Kenneth Williams, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti, Alfre Woodard, Garret Dillahunt, Adepero Oduye and Beasts of the Southern Wild stars Quvenzhane Wallis and Dwight Henry and Brad Pitt. The film had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival and then played again shortly thereafter at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it was awarded the prestigious Audience Award. Fox Searchlight will begin its platform release on Oct. 18.

The Hollywood Film Awards are determined by founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu and an advisory committee. Last month, the Hollywood Film Awards and d*** Clark Productions, which also produced the Golden Globe Awards, entered into a partnership that could lead to the ceremony being televised in future years. Over the past 10 years, Hollywood Film Awards honorees went on to garner a total of 96 Oscar nominations and 34 Oscars.

De Abreu tells THR, “We look forward to celebrating this exceptionally talented director and actress for their outstanding work and creative vision."
