ANDREW NICCOL was nominated for an Academy Award
for Best Screenplay and won Britain's BAFTA Award for Oscar contender The
Truman Show starring Jim Carrey, which he wrote and produced.
The native New Zealander began his career directing
commercials in London but moved to Los Angeles because he wanted to make films
"longer than 60 seconds." He wrote The Truman Show before
writing and directing the critically acclaimed Gattaca. That original
screenplay was his feature film directing debut and starred Ethan Hawke and Uma
Thurman. It was nominated for an Academy Award for
Art Direction and a Golden Globe for Music. The film was an international best
bringing Niccol Spain's Catalonian International Film Festival Best Film
Award, a Gerardmer Film Festival Special Jury Prize, a London Film Critics ALFS
Award and a best screenplay nomination from the Writers Guild of America. It was
also nominated for the Paris Film Festival's Grand Prix Award.
