Naomie Harris, Moonlight- Best Performance By An Actress In A Supporting Role In Any Motion Picture

“On Moonlight it was heavy on set because I only had the three days to shoot that role so because it was so intense I just kind of had to stay in the skin of Paula as much as I possibly could to get through”, Naomie Harris told us, describing the experience of creating a key character in writer-director Barry JenkinsMoonlight: Paula, a drug addict and reluctant mother to Chiron, the film’s protagonist. The daughter of a strong and successful woman, Harris admits she had “reservations about playing a crack addict”, a bravura performance that earned her this nomination.  “I do think actually that Paula ultimately is a progressive image”, she adds. “Because she does find redemption with her son.” This is Naomie Harris’ first nomination.
