Award winning director Adam McKay’s new film, Beautiful Boy, has been nominated for the Golden Globe Awards for Best Motion Picture, Actor, Actor in a Motion Picture and Best Director.
The Oscar-nominated movie, based on a memoir by the same name, follows a gay boy (Matthew McConaughey) who struggles to find acceptance after being rejected by his high school classmates.
McKay said that he is inspired by the gay and lesbian community’s success in the past, and the film’s themes of acceptance and acceptance in a world where he is not allowed to exist.
McKay told the Associated Press that he was inspired by stories about the gay community, saying that they are still being persecuted, including in many places in the U.S. that were created by a man, like North Carolina.
The Golden Globes are the annual awards that honor the best picture and best actress in a motion picture, acting, director, producer, writer or cinematographer.
McKay’s film was nominated for best picture, best director, best actress, and best supporting actor.
“The beauty of the Oscar is that it is so inclusive, and so accepting of people who don’t have the same rights as everybody else,” McKay said in a statement.
“It’s also really inclusive of people like me who have been marginalized for so long and have had to come out and tell a story about our struggles and triumphs.
We want to celebrate people for what they are, and celebrate the things that make us strong and beautiful.”
The film is the first film from McKay, whose debut film, The Imitation Game, received critical acclaim and earned McKay a Tony Award nomination.
In February, McKay’s films hit the big screen in the hit film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and in July, he directed a romantic comedy, The Wedding Ringer.
McKay is repped by CAA and Anonymous Content.
