Congratulations to SKYFALL’s Adele for her Best Original Song Oscar and also to Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers who picked up the Oscar for Sound Editing!
At last night’s BAFTA ceremony in London SKYFALL was presented with two awards. The first was for Outstanding British Film; director Sam Mendes, writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli were on hand to receive the award. Later in the ceremony, Composer Thomas Newman was honoured for his SKYFALL score.
Actress Judi Dench who played 'M' in last years Skyfall (and 6 other films) talked about the fact that Skyfall didn't make the Best Picture shortlist at the 2013 Oscars.
"I'm very, very sorry that nothing has been recognised, that's a great pity. I thought Sam Mendes directed it absolutely beautifully. It was a terrific film. I think it's good luck if you get an Oscar nomination and bad luck if you don't."
Skyfall, however, received nominations in five other categories and a 50th Anniversary celebration will be held at the awards ceremony this month.
Congratulations to SKYFALL’s Production Designer Dennis Gassner who won the Art Director’s Guild Award for contemporary film last night in LA at the 17th Annual Excellence In Production Design Awards for 2012. Earlier that evening Gassner joined Bond production luminaries Ken Adam, Peter Lamont, and Allan Cameron who were honoured with the guild’s Cinematic Imagery Award, recognising the longest-running franchise in film history for its visionary and innovative design.
