James Franco accepted award for Outstanding Performance

user
Now even though I was scheduled to attend this event, I had a very important dinner meeting this night at a nearby SB Lebanese restaurant 'Zaytoon' (yum, great belly dancer, shisha and garden decor by the way) so I did not attend. But I was told later that Franco was '127 hours late' arriving after an Oscar rehearsal and red carpet interviews were nil as he ran in faster than the speed of light but here is a short recap of the James Franco award panel for 'Outstanding Performance' hosted...

Top Ten Oscar Snubs And Surprises

user
  While most of the Oscar nominations announced last week were rather predictably the names and titles that we have been expecting, there were a number of surprises and snubs. Although the Academy has expanded the Best Film contender list to ten titles in order to spread the love, the acting and directing categories still can only include five people, so invariably there are those worthy of attention who fall off the list. Maybe there were number 6 or number 7, but if they did not make t...

The BUFF Blog (January 2011)

user
No matter how many times BUFF ventures down to Soho to get entertained, the result is always the same. And no matter how you dress it up, January is almost invariably a month-long period of attrition, angst and apathy. So it seemed perfectly reasonable to expect a good time to be had when yours truly was invited down to Soho on a cold and wet Friday evening for a preview screening of ‘David is Dying’ – the debut feature-length drama penned, and produced by Stephen Lloyd Jackson and Andy ...
