The key moments in which Murray’s performance is crystallised are presented immediately and performatively to the viewer of Lost in Translation, offering the brief pleasure of the performance in itself, but in each case this is closely framed by explicit and more extended acknowledgment of its status as a construct. 40 Lost in Translation A similarly hybrid status can be identified in the framing of the longer still-photography shoot. Murray sits on a stool, directly facing the movie camera, but directing his performance slightly off to the viewer’s right, towards the direction of the fictional photographer.

Oscar-related publicity would also be expected to impact very positively on overseas revenues. There was little expectation that Lost in Translation would be serious competition for best film, an award widely predicted to go to Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, but it was considered by the trade press to have performed strongly by gaining four top nominations.
