In reviewing the high-profile nominations earned by the company, Wicked Pictures contract director Brad Armstrong reflected, “we worked very hard on ‘Fallen,’ and I’m glad to see that it received so much attention.

“On a personal level, the ‘Director of the Year – Body of Work’ nomination is a great honor, because although we put alot of effort into our ‘big’ movies, the ultimate goal at Wicked is to give all our releases throughout the year this kind of attention and care.”

Contract filmmaker Michael Raven echoed his sentiments, adding, “‘The Wicked’ is a very unique project and I’m quite pleased with how it has been received.

“I’m also very proud of the acclaim, attention, and value placed upon Wicked Pictures as a whole.”
