The Margot Corner

We finally have an official confirmation – ‘I, Tonya’ gets a 2017 release date, qualifying it for the next year’s awards race! The film will open in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 8, with a platform rollout that will continue into January. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news a couple of minutes ago, and you can read it in full below. I have also replaced one of the portraits Margot did for them during the Toronto Film Festival with a high quality version – check it out here.

The Hollywood Reporter – The upstart distributor Neon will open the film in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 8, with a platform rollout continuing into January. I, Tonya, Craig Gillespie’s hilarious and devastating Tonya Harding biopic, is officially joining the race to the 90th Oscars, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The film, which stars Margot Robbie (who also is one of its producers), had its world premiere on Sept. 8 at the Toronto International Film Festival, where, three days later, it became the fest’s highest-profile acquisition, selling to Tom Quinn and Tim League’s Neon for $5 million (over an even larger bid by Netflix).

After catching I, Tonya in Toronto, I wrote: “In the hands of a competent distributor, Robbie could well land a best actress nomination — she wouldn’t be the first beautiful actress to ‘de-glam’ and/or produce her own project and get recognized for doing so (see: Charlize Theron and 2003’s Monster). As for [Allison] Janney, she seems to me like a slam-dunk for a best supporting actress nom [for her portrayal of Harding’s mother] — which would be her first-ever Academy recognition, and hugely deserved.”
