New York earns 28 nominations thanks to film tax credit program

Empire State Development congratulated the 13 New York-based productions that earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations last week. These nominees participate in the state's film tax credit program.

Ten New York-based productions received 17 nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, and six New York-based productions received 11 nominations for 2014 SAG Awards. "Phil Spector," "Blue Jasmine" and "Nurse Jackie" earned both Golden Globe and SAG nominations, while "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "The Good Wife" led the Empire State by earning three Golden Globe nominations each, as did "The Butler" by earning three SAG nominations.

"I want to congratulate the many New Yorkers who earned Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations this year," said Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. "Fostering growth in the film and television industries in New York has created thousands of new jobs and generated billions of dollars in economic activity for our state. The Empire State's film and television industry is experiencing its most active and productive period in our history, and we look forward to continuing to celebrate the nominees and winners from our New York state productions."

"Thanks to Gov. Cuomo's leadership and our newly expanded New York State Film Production Tax Credit Program, New York state's film and television industries are thriving," said Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Kenneth Adams. "(These) nominations are a well-deserved tribute to the hard-working people, especially the crew members, who work tirelessly to make New York state the top choice for productions."

The state's film tax credit program is consistently cited as a leading factor in the decision to film and produce in New York. The 13 productions earning nominations contributed approximately $558 million in spending in New York, and approximately 31,400 new hires. In 2013, 121 films, 33 television series, and 24 pilots are participating in the state's program, estimated to produce 127,428 new hires and $2.1 billion in new spending for New York.

"The state of New York is a terrific place for CBS to do business, and has helped to make possible the gratifying success of 'The Good Wife,' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' and a host of other New York-based productions," said Leslie Moonves, president and CEO of the CBS Corporation. "We'd like to thank Gov. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature for all the great support they give our industry, and we are very pleased today to have two of our standout projects be honored in this way."

"We are thrilled about these nominations for 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and are extremely proud of this picture," said Richard Baratta, unit production manager on "The Wolf of Wall Street." "The production greatly benefited by being shot in New York state, and the filming experience was terrific. Between Gov. Cuomo's solid support and vital incentive, and the wealth of talented crew, exquisite locations and unparalleled infrastructure, New York is the place to be."

"Congratulations to the nominees, supporting casts, crews and thousands of other New Yorkers employed in the related industries as a result of these productions locating in the Metropolitan area," said John Ford, president of Local 52 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. "Additionally, congratulations should go to Gov. Cuomo and the Legislature for having the foresight to extend the production tax credits that bring these great shows to New York."

"Congratulations to all the award nominees from the Motion Picture Editors Guild," said Paul Moore, eastern executive director, Motion Picture Editors Guild IATSE, Local 700. "Many thanks to the producers, for working with our talent, and doing post-production in New York state!"

"The Post New York Alliance congratulates our members nominated for Golden Globe and SAG awards. New York state is the greatest place on earth to finish film and television projects today," said Yana Collins Lehman, PNYA board co-chair. "Thanks to our incredible tax incentive, which Gov. Cuomo has supported and improved, New York's post-production industry has never been busier or better than it is right now. It is a thrill to be recognized by SAG and the Foreign Press."

The recently expanded and enhanced New York State Film Production Tax Credit program includes new incentives that attract television shows produced in other states to New York to create jobs, spur tourism, and generate new spending. The program supports a robust industry cluster that has become a major source of direct and indirect employment and economic opportunity across the state. In addition, the program provides new incentives that lower restrictions on post-production, making it easier for productions to conduct such work in New York. A new provision aims to attract out-of-state talk and variety programs to the Empire State if they have filmed at least five seasons in another state, while other new incentives aim to boost production in upstate New York.
