Timothée’s Mom Woke Him Up with Golden Globe News!

Monday, Dec 11, 2017

EW – Timothée Chalamet is thrilled. For good reason: He just got nominated for his first Golden Globe, an honor he received for his stunning performance in Call Me By Your Name, Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of André Aciman’s 2007 novel.

“I’m sure you can hear it in my voice,” he told EW on Monday. “I’m on cloud nine. I’m so happy.”

Chalamet has already received plenty of acclaim for playing the teenage Elio in the film, which follows his euphoric relationship with a 20-something doctoral student (played by Armie Hammer, who also received a Globe nod) during a summer in Italy. But in an attempt to avoid setting himself up for disappointment, he decided to sleep in instead of watching the nominations announcement Monday morning.

“I woke up with a text from my mom,” he says. “It was, ‘Yeah!!’ … and then she said ‘Boom!’ with a bunch of emojis.”

“It’s a moment to really appreciate and look around and take a second and go, okay, sit in this moment you’re in, because any actor’s career is full of real peaks and valleys, so when it’s going right, just be thankful.”

And it’s going very right for Chalamet right now: Along with starring in Call Me By Your Name, he also appears in the beloved Lady Bird, which received four Golden Globe nods Monday; last month, he won the trophy for breakthrough actor at the Gotham Awards. There, he gave an earnest acceptance speech where he referenced New York-bred stars, notably shouting out “Bodak Yellow” rapper Cardi B. But he’s not about to give away who he might call out in a hypothetical Golden Globes acceptance speech: “I gotta save it for then!” he laughs.

Until then, he’s savoring this moment. “This is happening at a very young age, so to lay claim to the word ‘struggle’ would be presumptuous, but there are a lot of auditions and a lot of projects and a lot of things you’re part of as an actor, things that sometimes don’t get the love you think they should,” Chalamet says. “So to get to be part of something that generally seems to be having an effect on people and to be able to tell that story with Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg and to get to be in front of Luca Guadagnino’s lens is a dream come true.”

New York Film Critics Circle Winners

Friday, Dec 1, 2017

Exciting news! Timothée will receive the Best Actor (Call Me by Your Name) award from the New York Film Critics Circle. Lady Bird has been named the Best Picture. Tim has been very busy this year, I apologize for the lack of news around here! We’ll be back on track soon.

‘Lady Bird’ Named Best Picture by New York Film Critics Circle

VARIETY – With its annual cinema superlatives vote Thursday morning, the New York Film Critics Circle made a handful of historical choices. “Call Me by Your Name” star Timothée Chalamet became the youngest winner of the group’s best actor prize, while “Mudbound” DP Rachel Morrison became the first woman to win the cinematography award (perhaps on her way to making further history as the first-ever female Oscar nominee in the category).

See the full list of winners below along with ongoing commentary from the morning.
This year’s NYFCC ceremony, taking place on Jan. 3, will be dedicated to the memory of film critic Richard Schickel, who passed away in February.

Best Actor: Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”)
A breakthrough staple so far this season, Chalamet has caught fire as a bona fide lead actor contender in this year’s race. He’s also had a busy year, appearing in “Hostiles” and “Lady Bird” as well. He is the youngest best actor winner in NYFCC history.

Best Film: “Lady Bird” (Gerwig)
And now “Lady Bird” becomes the second!

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Cast, Director Talk About Shooting a Boundary-Pushing Gay Romance

THE WRAP – TheWrap Screening Series: Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet and director Luca Guadagnino talk about their buzzy film

“Call Me by Your Name” is a critical and box office triumph — but in a movie landscape that rarely represents a spectrum of male sexuality, there’s been plenty of analysis and even backlash for the rich, homosexual romance.

During TheWrap’s Q&A with stars Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet and director Luca Guadagnino, TheWrap’s Matt Donnelly asked how they deal with seemingly constant over-analysis of the film that won the Best Feature prize at the Gotham Independent Film Awards and had this year’s highest per theater average opening: Sometimes it’s too sexual, at other times it’s not sexual enough, according to observers. Others say it sexualizes someone too young, and some even brought Elio’s parents into the mix.
