Patricia Arquette is an Oscar winner as she won best supporting actress for the 2014 movie Boyhood. Her performance in Escape At Dannemora has left viewers spellbound. There is no question Patricia gave her all to this role and viewers as well critics took notice.
Patricia Arquette currently has three nominations for Escape At Dannemora and she has won two of the three. She was nominated for a Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Award and Screen Actor Guild award. She won the Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award. The Screen Actors’ Guild Awards (SAGS) are held on January 27, 2019.
Will Patricia Arquette win every award for playing Tilly Mitchell that she was nominated for?
Escape At Dannemora is a true testament to the power of an all-star cast giving everything they have to their characters. When the series first aired on Showtime ratings weren’t as high as one might expect. As more people watched the series and were mesmerized by Ben Stiller’s directing and the cast members performances including Benicio del Toro, Paul Dano, and Bonnie Hunt, more people tuned in.
The show has become so popular that fans are demanding a second season and they want the same cast!
It’s too early to tell if there will be an Escape At Dannemora season 2, but if there’s anything time has taught us it’s never to write a series off, even a limited one. Fan power is strong and the fans, as well as critics, are demanding more.
