Heist Movie Filmed in New Mexico Gets 3 Golden Globe Nods
An American heist-thriller movie filmed entirely in New Mexico has just been nominated for three Golden Globes awards.
The American neb-western heist crime film "Hell or High Water" earned three Golden Globe nominations this morning when the nominees were announced in Beverly Hills, California. "Hell or High Water" was filmed entirely in New Mexico, and the movie takes place in West Texas.
The movie was nominated for Best Motion Picture- Drama, Best Supporting Actor- Motion Picture and Best Supporting Actor for Jeff Bridges. Other nominees for Best Drama include “Hacksaw Ridge,” ”Lion,” ”Manchester by the Sea” and “Moonlight.”
The awards ceremony will be Jan. 8.
"Hell or High Water" sets West Texas as the backdrop for the movie and New Mexico stood in as the desert landscape for the film. Bank robbery scenes were filmed in Clovis and Portales, NM, with appearances by Quay County's caprock escarpment, Moriarty and Tucumcari in the film.
The movie was filmed in 2015, with over 100 New Mexico crew members and 850 background talent from New Mexico.
