The day before yesterday I received some good news from Ken Follett about the mini-series The Pillars of the Earth.
The television mini-series of my novel, The Pillars of the Earth, has been nominated for three Golden Globe awards by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and also for a Writers Guild of America award.
Tandem's production of The Pillars of the Earth received a nomination in the Best Mini-Series category, Ian McShane received a nomination in the Best Actor category for his performance as Bishop Waleran, and Hayley Atwell received a nomination in the Best Actress category for her performance as Aliena. In addition, the Writers Guild of America has nominated the scriptwriter, John Pielmeier, for an award in the Best Writer: Long Form-Adaptation category.
I am delighted that the series, which has been so very well received wherever it has been screened, has been honoured in this way. If you have not yet had a chance to see 'Pillars', it is now available on DVD and Blu-ray.
