Shia LaBeouf Removed from Netflix’s Awards Page for Pieces of a Woman After FKA Twigs Lawsuit

Shia LeBeouf has been removed from Netflix’s award consideration page for the upcoming flick ‘Pieces of a Woman.’

via People:

LaBeouf’s name has been omitted from the streaming site’s For Your Consideration page for the film, including the movie summary, movie stills and from any award consideration after he was sued by his ex-girlfriend, singer FKA twigs.

His costar, The Crown actress Vanessa Kirby, is up for best actress consideration.

Netflix did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The film follows Martha (Kirby) and Sean (LaBeouf) as they excitedly prepare for the birth of their first child. Tragedy strikes when Martha loses the baby during an at-home birth and pursues litigation against her midwife (Parker) while she tries to repair her relationships with Sean and her domineering mother (Ellen Burstyn).

Netflix is currently promoting the film, on the streaming site on Jan. 7, with Kirby and Burstyn in consideration for awards season. Molly Parker, Sarah Snook, Iliza Shlesinger, Jimmy Fails and Benny Safdie are also up for awards consideration in acting categories.

Kirby has been earning critical acclaim for her portrayal as a grieving mother, winning the Volpi Cup for best actress at the 2020 Venice Film Festival in September. The movie also won the prize for best film at the festival.

The Hollywood Reporter’s movie critic, David Rooney, praised the “remarkable” actress for giving  a “tough performance, bleeding beneath her armor-plated guard but refusing to soften Martha’s abrasive sides as she undertakes the isolating work of learning to live with her loss.”

Vanity Fair’s Katey Rich wrote, “Kirby… brings to life a woman whom the film almost entirely defines by tragedy.”

Earlier this month, LaBeouf was sued by FKA twigs for sexual and physical assault, according to the lawsuit obtained by PEOPLE.

Is this the end of Shia LeBeouf’s Hollywood career as we know it? Probably not. In a few years we’re sure he’ll pull a Mel Gibson and everyone will gloss over FKA Twigs’ allegations.
