Congratulations Academy Award Nominees

When you consider how a Hollywood film gets made, you may immediately think about the most publicized players- the actors, directors, producers and film studios involved.  And while they are all vital to the process (including the crews and technical experts who contribute their talents), did you know that none of it could happen without insurance?

We are proud to be the behind-the-scenes players, experts and consultants who can weigh in on everything from actor and location selection to stunt coordination and special effects.

As the industry gears up for its most anticipated award ceremony, the 90th Academy Awards, we would like to take a moment to congratulate the nominated films our Entertainment division has been very proud to support this year – “I, Tonya”, “All the Money in the World”, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri” and  “The Shape of Water.”

All of us at OneBeacon congratulate you on your achievements and wish you luck on Sunday!
