Jan 23 2024

Oscar nominations are out, and Temple University is represented twice over!

Da’Vine is in the middle of an award sweep right now; she's a first-time winner at the Critics Choice Awards and the Golden Globe Awards, Sag-Aftra Awards, People's Choice Awards as well as several film festivals. THE HOLDOVERS received 6 total Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. 

This is Colman’s first ever Oscar Award nomination, and it’s a notable one: his nomination marks the second time an openly gay man has been nominated for portraying a gay character in the Best Leading Actor category. The first was Ian McKellen in 1999 for GODS AND MONSTERS. 

ALSO worth noting -- Alum Jordan Dobson ('17) is featured in the Best Picture Oscar-Nominated film MAESTRO 

Congratulations, Da’Vine, Colman and Jordan! The Oscars Award ceremony will be broadcast live on March 10th, at 7pm EST.
