CARTOON NETWORK- HALL OF GAME AWARDS
Do you know what hundreds of star-struck kids hopped up on Cheetos and Rold Gold pretzels sound like? Well, suffice to say the noise generated by these cheering young fans was almost equal to the roar of the corporate jets that flew above them at the 2012 Cartoon Network Hall of Game Awards Saturday afternoon.
AN EVENING WITH GARY OLDMAN
Did you know that, in addition to being the largest art museum in the western United States, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is also a great place to catch a movie? It's okay if you didn't, because I only found this out for myself this past Friday after spending nearly six hours in its comfortable 600-seat Bing Theater. It was here, where I took in two wonderful films- State of Grace, The Contender- and listened to the phenomenally talented Gary Oldman.
SAG AWARDS NOMINATIONS
Ah, to be recognized by your peers. What person doesn't enjoy receiving an accolade or two from a counterpart in reference to their work? I suspect most do and that's what makes the Screen Actors Guild Awards all the more special, because it's actors recognizing the performance of other actors.
CRITIC'S CHOICE AWARDS NOMINATIONS
You know how professional movie critics like to judge the merits of a film and then share these valuable insights with the general public in a sometimes quote-worthy manner? Well, each year, since 1995, the Broadcast Film Critics Association, which is the largest film critics organization in the U.S. and Canada representing over 250 such television, radio, and online critics, presents its Critics' Choice Movie Awards to honor the finest achievements in filmmaking.
