Film set designer nominated for Bafta
Published 13/01/14



A FORMER Henley schoolboy has been nominated for a Bafta award.

Andy Nicholson, who grew up in Shiplake, is shortlisted in the production design category for his work on the film Gravity.

His mother Wendy, a former teacher at The Henley College, said: “We’re all very proud. I didn’t expect it and I forgot the nominations were coming out. I heard them on Radio 4 on Wednesday morning and was thrilled to bits.

“Andy’s in Los Angeles so I sent him an email straight away but because he’s eight hours behind I woke him up. He said his phone had gone crazy but he was really pleased.”

Gravity, which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, received 11 nominations, the most of any film this year.


Mrs Nicholson, who lives in Shiplake with her husband Dan, said: “It’s an extraordinary film. I felt I was up there in space at the end of watching it.”

Mr Nicholson, who attended Shiplake Primary School and Gillotts School, is nominated with colleagues Rosie Goodwin and Joanne Woodward.

They face competition from the production design teams on 12 Years As A Slave, American Hustle, Behind the Candelabra and The Great Gatsby.

The Bafta winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Royal Opera House on February 16.
