Minnie Driver's awards Conviction

Minnie Driver thinks Sam Rockwell was overlooked

Minnie Driver feels her Conviction co-stars have been overlooked during this year's awards season, but insists gongs aren't as important as making good films.

The British actress stars alongside Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell in the true story of Betty Anne Waters' 18-year quest to prove her brother Kenny's innocence after he was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in jail.

Minnie said: "Sam was horribly overlooked and so was Hil, but it's a brilliant film."

She added: "So I think that's all you can do is make the things that you love and awards sort of come and go. They're wonderful, but you can't stop making good work."

Minnie also stars in Barney's Version with Paul Giamatti and Rosamund Pike, which is doing much better this awards season, with Paul even winning a Golden Globe.

Minnie said: "Just to get a Golden Globe nomination is epic. There are five other actors nominated."

Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
