    Looks like JMS called it. He wanted Dark Knight to win but thought that Angelina stood a good chance.

    Christopher Award Winners Announced

    Christopher Award Winners Announced

    NEW YORK, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- From the slums of Mumbai to the Iraqi desert, from skid row in Los Angeles to the aftermath of the Holocaust on Lithuanian survivors, winners of the annual 60th annual Christopher Awards share the common theme of hope in the face of adversity. The Awards, which will be presented on Thursday, April 16, salute media that remind audiences of their power to make a difference.

    Twenty-four feature films, TV and cable programs, and books for adults and young people, along with their 98 writers, illustrators, directors, producers and executive producers, will be recognized at the Christopher Awards gala, at the McGraw-Hill Building, here.

    Father Dennis W. Cleary, M.M., the new director of The Christophers, expressed his pleasure at personally greeting this year's winners. "Artists offer humanity a unique prism," said Father Cleary. "The creative contributions recognized by the Christopher Awards present views of reality which heighten inspiration and engage the human soul. Each Christopher Award winner 'affirms the highest values of the human spirit.'"

    Feature Films

    The six Award-winning Feature Films focus on protagonists from youth to old age facing extreme challenges. Slumdog Millionaire's Jamal Malik and The Secret Life of Bees' Lily Owens survive brutal childhoods and grow up to be winners in spite of early obstacles. [email protected] follows a chorus of senior citizens as they rehearse and perform contemporary rock, despite physical infirmities and initial unfamiliarity with their repertoire. Music bridges the gap between generations and cultures in The Visitor and a lone robot with an affinity for Broadway show tunes helps bring life back to garbage-strewn Earth in the computer-animated WALL-E. And finally, Changeling, directed by Clint Eastwood, shows a mother's fierce determination to reunite with her abducted son in the face of rampant police corruption in Los Angeles circa 1928. ...

    The Christophers are rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition of service to God and humanity. The ancient Chinese proverb -- "It's better to light one candle than to curse the darkness" -- guides its publishing, radio and awards programs. To learn more, visit www.christophers.org.

    I can only agree with that assessment.

    Just received the DVD a few days ago and plan to share the viewing with a friend in a few days. She has sesen the film, but I think it is well worth a second viewing.

    And welcome to the board , Steve

    Congratulations are in order to JMS and everyone involved for making a powerful, excellent film.

    Angelina Jolie gave the best performance I have ever seen her give as well as John Malkovich.

    The story, to me anyway, is about courage. We need it. We cannot live without it. Only with it can we "speak truth to power."

    Apparently some of their categories are open to any piece of work. Kyra Sedgwick is up for Best Actress for "The Closer", for instance.

    "Changeling" is listed in the Best Action/Adventure/Thriller Film category.

    I'm very glad for JMS and all the people involved, but I'm also a little confused. Since I don't follow the awards closely, is it common for the the Academy Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films to present awards to works that aren't science fiction, fantasy or horror?

    Not being in the business, it's hard to say but my impression is that even being nominated for a well-respected award can be beneficial to your career in the form of a better negotiating stance ("You seriously want me to go to my multi-award nominated client and offer him that paltry amount?!") to being able to make contact with the real decision makers instead of lower level development people ("Mr. Howard, that writer with the name I can't pronounce is returning your call on line 3.").

    Some of this began the moment that Ron Howard bought "Changeling", of course, but I think the award nominations help keep that status in the forefront of the Hollywood mind.

    The Saturn Awards were mentioned in Variety, Cineblend, BBC News, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times.

    Any recognition..

    from what I recall in his mind, any recognition is better than none. He was floored at being in Cannes and among the European set over there. Imagine him walking down the red carpet here!
    Even if he wasn't nominated, he would have gotten an invite. He was the screenwriter for a film that was nominated in three categories, that ain't nothin' to sneeze at.
    Joe is now 'a name' that is bandied about regularly, and granted, his first project out of the gate was a bit off the beaten track, it's an amazing ride still for him.

    (OT: I have decided not to attend San Diego Comicon this year due to budget restrictions. So I won't be able to see Joe in person this year.)

    I am happy for Joe no matter if he gets an award or nomination or whatever. I'm sure everyone else here feels the same way.
