Over the course of over three decades, he has been a consistent presence on the big screen. With this week’s release of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell […] More

  • Oscar Circuit: Best Animated Feature

    Let’s face the facts everybody: 2011 will probably go down as one of the most disappointing years in animation. That being said, I’m actually glad that the Academy was able to come up with five worthy candidates for this nomination category.

  • ‘Artist’ and ‘Descendants’ split the 62nd Annual ACE Eddie Awards!

    At this year’s ACE Eddie Awards, a few interesting things of note went down.

Here’s the story from Deadline on the campaign afoot: Although studios are furiously spending big campaign bucks on […] More

    I am deeply honored to have been nominated by the Academy for my work on Hugo. Every picture is a challenge, and this one – where I was working with 3D, HD and Sacha Baron Cohen for the first time – was no exception. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you’ve been recognized by […] More

    American Film Institute (AFI) Preview & Predictions

    The American Film Institute will be unveiling their top ten films of 2011 tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited.  This particular group doesn’t have a huge impact on the race like it should but they do often present some eclectic choices.  Last  year they named every Best Picture nominee except for Oscar Best Picture Winner “The […] More
