Lenny Abrahamson’s Room has been nominated for Best Picture (Drama), Best Actress (Drama), and Best Screenplay at the Golden Globes, set to take place this Sunday in Beverly Hills.

After taking home the gong for Best International Independent Film at the Moët British Independent Film Awards in December, the film will hopefully continue its festival season success when it goes up the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, and Spotlight in the Best picture category  at the glittering awards ceremony hosted by the incorrigible Ricky Gervais.

An Element Pictures and No Trace Camping production, produced by Ed Guiney and David Gross, the movie was was edited here at Screen Scene by Nathan Nugent, who was recently nominated for an Independent Spirit award for his incredible work. Full sound post on the film took place here at Screen Scene and at Ardmore Sound. Screen Scene also provided all the films VFX.

Screen Scene would like to extend a massive congratulations to Lenny Abrahamson, Element Pictures, Film4, the Irish Film Board and all involved on the well deserved Golden Globe nominations and wish them the best of luck at this weekends ceremony.

Adapted by Emma Donughue from her own book, Room stars Brie Larson, Joan Allen and William H. Macy, in a harrowing story about a young woman (Larson) and her 5-year-old son, Jack (newcomer Jacob Tremblay) who have been locked in a 10-foot by 10-foot single room as prisoners for multiple years. The room is the only home Jack has ever known, but as his curiosity is building alongside his Mothers own desperation, she knows it can’t contain either indefinitely…

The film is set to open in the UK and Ireland on January 15.
