Paul Schrader

“First Re­formed”

Variety - - Contenders -

Schrader has racked up a bevy of nom­i­na­tions through­out his ca­reer, both as a screen­writer (two Golden Globe and one WGA nom) and as a direc­tor (two Spirit Awards noms). But Os­car at­ten­tion has long eluded him, and “First Re­formed” at­tracted the most at­ten­tion of any of his late- ca­reer works. Early awards at­ten­tion has been split be­tween screen­writ­ing and di­rect­ing — with New York Film Crit­ics Cir­cle and Gotham Awards honors for the former, and a Spirit nom for the lat­ter — but the direc­tors’ branch could well give him a long-awaited nom­i­na­tion.
