Empire Award - Where to find pics...
Irascian (Ian Smith) has posted some at TORn, and www.boydism.net has some nice ones of Billy. Love Andy's red shirt! I remember him wearing red at C4 and it look brilliant on him. *S*

Love this (from Ian's report): "Billy Boyd later answered questions about the differences between “Master and Commander” and “Lord of the Rings” (“one was six months long, the other was four years. One was very very wet, the other one wasn’t) and said that both being up for Oscars lowered the odds in his favour. He said the screenplay that he and Dom had worked on was now being written by David Greig and that the current title was “Fish out of Water” but that he was pretty sure the title would change before completion because it wasn’t a very good title!"

That's David Greig, who wrote "San Diego", the play that Billy was in last August... where he played... ummm... David Greig. Funny old world, ain't it? *G*

I loved what Andy Serkis said:

".... I'd like to say thank you to all the Empire readers who were clearly very intelligent and could see that there was an actor involved in the part at all. I suppose I would like to say a big thank-you to Peter Jackson, to Weta Digital and all the animators that worked on the role, but fuck em - they're all going to get loads of awards anyway. I would like to say thank-you to Elijah Wood and Sean Astin who had to suffer nearly four years of me crawling around in a lycra outfit - they had to stare at my sweaty... "

*LOL*! Go, Andy!!! *G* The nut! Thanks for that - I hadn't seen a transcript of his comments. And, yes - is this the first acting award Andy's gotten, then? And is it because they can say that you actually say Andy this time (in his flashback role as Smeagol)?

P.S. Hooray for Ian Smith! I think he was the one who e-mailed me personally within the day when I had a question on his site. Must be a real sweetheart.

He IS! I remember ragging about him because of the no-so-flattering report he did of C4... and of the people in the audience at the panels (the same ones we were at - eep!). We ended up emailing back and forth a few times, and now I realize he's a great guy... who was just easily annoyed that day. *G* He was evenkind enough to answer some photo questions! And his photos... *drools*... he's very talented.
