Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW DELHI, India - Jan 19, 2016 - Nominations for Academy Awards are out and no news could’ve been happier for Anil Ambani-led Reliance Entertainment to see Bridge of Spies get nominated under 6 categories.

It has received Academy nominations under major categories such as Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay (Matthew Charman, Ethan Coen, Joel Coen), Best Original Score (Thomas Newman), Best Production Design (Adam Stockhausen, Rena DeAngelo and Bernard Henrich), Best Supporting Actor (Mark Rylance) and Best Sound Mixing (Andy Nelson, Gary Rydstrom and Drew Kunin) categories as announced in Los Angeles on 14th January.

Apart from Reliance Entertainment, Indian American Pixar artist and director Sanjay Patel has received a nod for his animated short film “Sanjay’s Super Team” and Indian-origin British filmmaker Asif Kapadia has been nominated for “Amy.”
Reliance Entertainment is the media and entertainment branch of the Reliance Group and is renowned for its creation and distribution of content across films, television, digital and gaming platforms.
