HUGO – NOMINATIONS
Best Original Score – Motion Picture
Best Director – Motion Picture
Best Motion Picture – Drama
Making Hugo was an extraordinary experience for me. It gave me a chance to work in 3D, which I’ve wanted to do since I was young; it allowed me to make a child’s adventure, the type of picture that I loved when I was young; and it provided an occasion to pay tribute to one of the cinema’s greatest pioneers, Georges Méliès. Given the support they’ve provided to The Film Foundation in our efforts to restore many films over the years, the recognition of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this particular picture has a very special meaning for me.

In the midst of his great success Tom Hanks was compared to James Stewart, said to be the everyman of this generation, and perhaps like Hanks badly underappreciated as an actor. Like John Wayne, James Stewart’s abilities as an actor have been celebrated more since his death than they were in his life. Hanks has not had that problem, yet the comparison persists. Instead of comparing him to anyone I would rather think of Hanks as an original, a light comedic actor who slid into romantic comedy with ease and then into dramatic acting with equal ease. Not blessed with God given good looks, he looks average, like you and me; therefore the connection to him is stronger, more realistic than say connecting to Brad Pitt in Troy (2004). When Hanks is in character we can easily say, “I know that man; I am that man” and not be out of line for thinking or saying it. He is us and we are him, and no one understands that better than Tom Hanks who brings an easy grace and realism to each and every character he portrays.

I’m always a big fan of the Independent Spirit Awards, especially since their host usually gets to have more fun than most. This year should be a real treat, since Seth Rogen was asked to host the show. Here’s the story from The Hollywood Reporter:
Film Independent has tapped Seth Rogen to host the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards.
The 50/50 star will emcee the 27th annual awards ceremony, to be held on the Santa Monica beach on Saturday, Feb. 25 with the telecast to air at 10 p.m. ET/PT on IFC.
“We’re incredibly excited to have Seth as the host for the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards and join us in celebrating this year’s exquisite films and talented filmmaking artists.

Excited for the sneak peak of The Dark Knight Rises?
Are you all anticipating the eager release of next year’s sure-to-be mega-blockbuster, The Dark Knight Rises? I sure am, and the easiest way to satiate some of that hunger in anticipation for the summer 2012 release is to check out some of the IMAX screenings that will premiere Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, five days before the film releases wide on November 21st. At some of these IMAX screenings of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, attending moviegoers will get an exclusive 6 minute sneak peak of some footage from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.
