POOR THINGS, produced by Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Dublin based Element Pictures, along with Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone, scored 11 Academy Award© nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress for Emma Stone, Adapted Screenplay for Tony McNamara and Best Cinematography for Irish DOP Robbie Ryan.

Producers Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe said: We are delighted with this recognition from the Academy for our amazing cast and creative team on Poor Things based on Alasdair Gray’s iconic novel and adapted by the wonderful Tony McNamara. It’s an amazing testament to the collaboration between our brilliant director Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone our phenomenal lead actress and producing partner. It’s particularly gratifying that the Academy have recognised the incredibly imaginative, ambitious and iconic work of our many talented heads of department across cinematography, costume design, makeup and hair, original score, production design and editing – all working together in creative harmony in service of a unique directorial vision. And of course, the incomparable Mark Ruffalo in an outstanding performance.

We are also very grateful to our financiers, Film4 who helped us develop the film, Searchlight Pictures who have put it out into the world so brilliantly and to the team at Element who have contributed so much at every step of the way.
