In celebration of the theatrical premiere of If Beale Street Could Talk (Annapurna Pictures) this week, we take a look back at Moonlight, Composer Nicholas Britell and Director Barry Jenkins’ previous collaboration — last year’s Best Picture Academy Award®-winning film! This collaboration earned three Oscars®: Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor! Nicholas also earned an Academy Award® Best Score nomination for Moonlight.
Moonlight’s Academy Award® Nominees James Laxton (Best Cinematography) and Joi Mcmillon (Best Editing) also team up once again with Jenkins on If Beale Street Could Talk. With the buzz of critical acclaim for the forthcoming Beale Street theatrical opening on Friday, this is the perfect time to be reminded of the magic created once before with this winning team!
