Academy Awards 2008 - The Coen Brothers

This blog is very pleased with all the nominations received by the Coen brothers. They are truly the most talented screenwriters and directors in the modern North American movie industry. Let’s just put it this way: They got style, they have developed a unique style that was introduced from their first movie back in 1984 – Blood Simple, starred by John Getz and newcomer Frances McDormand (who would later become Joel Coen’s wife) – which has continuously been ameliorated. Their second production, Raising Arizona, starring Nicholas Cage and Holy Hunter kind of defines the basic lines and language that was increasingly becoming more solid at every new movie.

The Academy Award received by Frances McDormand for best actress back in 1996 for the movie Fargo, the Coen’s sixth production, was probably the first step towards a greater recognition from Hollywood. Having received eight nominations for their movie “No Country for Old Men” may be Hollywood’s redemption in regards to the Coen brothers’ body of work.

The Coen brothers’ filmography follows below:

Blood Simple (1984)

Raising Arizona (1987)

Miller's Crossing (1990)

Barton Fink (1991)
