The Descendants scoops five Academy Award nominations in the following categories: BEST PICTURE, BEST DIRECTOR - Alexander Payne, BEST ACTOR - George Clooney, BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY - Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, BEST FILM EDITING - Kevin Tent!

There's no denying that Oscar nominations for one's film are exciting, if only for the joy they give to everyone who worked so hard on the film. I'm particularly happy for the recognition of my long-time editor Kevin Tent. He really deserves it.” - ALEXANDER PAYNE

To celebrate the nominations and the upcoming release this FRIDAY, we are pleased to make available two new assets: a featurette entitled “Shooting Style”, which is an in depth conversation with George Clooney and Alexander Payne, and the humorous clip: "Who Is He".

Who Is He Clip
Shooting Style Featurette
From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar®-winning SIDEWAYS, THE DESCENDANTS is set in Hawaii and follows the unpredictable journey of an American family at a crossroads.

Matt King (George Clooney), a husband and father of two girls, must re-examine his past and navigate his future when his wife is in a boating accident off Waikiki. He awkwardly attempts to repair his relationship with his daughters - 10 year-old precocious Scottie (Amara Miller) and rebellious 17 year-old Alexandra (Shailene Woodley) - while wrestling with a decision to sell his family’s land. Handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries, the Kings own some of the last priceless virgin parcels of tropical beach in the islands.
The Descendants hits cinemas nationwide on 27th January 2012.
