STERLING K BROWN LANDS BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR OSCAR NOMINATION FOR AMERICAN FICTION (565 hits)




American Fiction is a 2023 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Cord Jefferson, in his feature directorial debut. Based on the 2001 novel Erasure by Percival Everett, the film follows a frustrated novelist-professor who writes an outlandishly stereotypical "black" book as satire, only for the book to be published to high sales and praise. It stars Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, Sterling K. Brown, John Ortiz, Erika Alexander, Leslie Uggams, Adam Brody, and Keith David.

American Fiction premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2023, where it won the People's Choice Award. It received a limited theatrical release by Amazon MGM Studios on December 15, 2023, with an expansion on December 22, 2023. It received positive reviews from critics, with Wright's performance earning widespread acclaim.

It was named one of the top 10 films of 2023 by the American Film Institute and has received numerous accolades. At the 96th Academy Awards, it earned five nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Wright), Best Supporting Actor (Brown), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Jefferson), as well as two nominations at the 81st Golden Globe Awards, and won Best Adapted Screenplay at the 29th Critics' Choice Awards.
