After watching live around the globe, many of us dashed to our computers to get to Oscars.com… If you don’t know by now, Gone Fishing was not nominated.
We were in the official shortlist of ten films from which the five nominations were drawn. But the judges placed us somewhere between film number six and ten. We got notification about this Official Shortlist last December, but we were told that we could not announce it or tell anyone.
It’s a sad day for us all, but let’s not linger here, let’s regroup and see what new horizons await Gone Fishing and what new and exciting projects await us all… As the Oscars chapter closes, a whole new chapter of Exciting Possibilities has just opened, and I just can’t wait.
Onwards, and if ever there was a time to say this, UPWARDS!
