Oscars 2014: '12 Years a Slave' director Steve McQueen is 'exhilarated, ecstatic' over nine noms

Waking up to nine Oscar nominations is a good way to start your day, even if you are thousands of miles away from your family. Such was the case for Steve McQueen on Thursday morning when his harrowing drama 12 Years a Slave earned nine Academy Award nominations, including nods for Best Picture and Best Director, and acting recognition for his three leads: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, and Lupita Nyong’o.

“I am exhilarated, ecstatic,” he told EW via phone. “Getting all those nominations, I’m so very happy.”

While the British director admits that he finds the promotional duties that accompany a movie of this subject matter and pedigree grueling, he has been energized by the quality of the discussions that have followed the screenings he’s attended.

“The subject matter conjures up such an interesting debate with the audience that every Q&A has been like a town hall meeting in a way,” McQueen said. “Everyone is talking about the past, present, and future. It’s become much more social and much more passionate in a way. We made a film that was based in 1851, but it’s actually talking about what’s happening today, so it’s been immensely stimulating.”

Leonardo DiCaprio defends 'Wolf of Wall Street': 'We're not condoning this behavior, we're indicting it'

The public seems to be torn on Martin Scorsese’s latest film venture, The Wolf of Wall Street. While some are praising the three-hour film, which takes a hard look at American greed, naysayers fear that the film focuses too much on celebrating the shallow lifestyle of convicted stock market manipulator Jordan Belfort.

Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays Belfort in the new Scorsese film, however, says that those who believe that The Wolf of Wall Street is condoning such behavior may be misunderstanding the true message of the film.

Weary 'Fifty Shades of Grey' fans rank the latest Christian Grey contenders

It’s been an emotional roller coaster of a few weeks for fans of E L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. First they had to deal with the largely unwelcome news that Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam would fill the expensive shoes of sex god billionaire Christian Grey. But they rolled with it and were starting to appreciate the more rugged appeal of Hunnam… only to face the sting of his abandonment when he bailed out of the Sam Taylor-Johnson adaptation slated to begin production this November. (Focus/Universal for now remains committed to their Aug. 1, 2014, release date).

“There is definitely a sense of fatigue around the film,” says Crissy Maier, the co-founder of Fifty Shades fan site Laters, Baby, which has more than 20,000 followers on Twitter. “People are worried about what’s going to happen and if the movie is going to be degraded. But that comes and goes in waves. Once whomever is going to play Christian is finally announced, people will get excited again.” On Monday, producer Michael DeLuce said their Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson, was participating in chemistry tests with actors. Here, Maier offers the Laters, Baby community ranking for the rumored short-list of actors still said to be circling the role.
