Felicity Jones named “New Hollywood Award” recipient for “Like Crazy” – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The word on “Like Crazy” out of Sundance this year was that it’s the film that broke the most hearts. Felicity Jones emerged from last winter’s festival as a talent to pay attention to. That’s why she’ll be honored with the “New Hollywood Award” at this year’s 15th Annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards.

This year’s ceremony, presented by Starz Entertainment, is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 24, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Jones will accept the award for her work in “Crazy,” a long-distance love affair co-starring Anton Yelchin that was co-written and directed by Drake Doremus.

Paramount Vantage plans to open “Like Crazy” in theaters on Oct. 28.

In the meantime, here’s Jones’s full bio:

Felicity Jones earned a Special Jury Award for acting when “Like Crazy” debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. She reunites with Drake Doremus for his follow-up, a currently untitled film she is shooting in New York with Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan. Jones also recently completed several additional projects including “Hysteria,” with Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy and Rupert Everett; “This Beautiful Fantastic,” directed by Joel Hopkins and written by Simon Aboud; and “Cheerful Weather for the Wedding,” directed by Donald Rice based on Julia Strachey’s 1932 novella, with Mackenzie Crook, Elizabeth McGovern and Luke Treadaway.

Additional film credits include the following: Page 8, a thriller by award-winning director David Hare; The Chalet Girl, a romantic comedy with Ed Westwick, Bill Nighy and Brooke Shields; Julie Taymor’s film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, also starring Dame Helen Mirren, Ben Whishaw and Alfred Molina; Albatross, directed by Niall MacCormick and co-starring Julia Ormond; Cemetery Junction, a comedy written and directed by the award-winning partnership of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, alongside a stellar cast including Ralph Fiennes, Emily Watson and Matthew Goode; Soulboy, a coming-of-age drama directed by Shimmy Marcus; Cheri, directed by Stephen Frears, co-starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathy Bates and Rupert Friend; Brideshead Revisited, directed by Julian Jarrold, opposite Matthew Goode, Ben Whishaw and Hayley Atwell; and Flashbacks Of A Fool, with Daniel Craig, Harry Eden, rapper Eve, Keeley Hawes and Olivia Williams.
