UPDATE: Rupert Grint A Jury Member At First Light Movies Award?

news Rupert Grint A Jury Member At First Light Movies Award? January 14, 2009, 7:10 AM–According to this article, Rupert Grint will be a jury member at 2009 First Light Movies Awards. He will be judging the movies in the Best Horror category — cool! Reportedly the other jury members in this category are Jamie Bamber (Law & Order) and BBC Entertainment Correspondent Lizo Mziba. If my memory serves me right, Emma Watson was a jury member back in 2004 for the same awards, so it is very likely that Rupert is indeed involved with FLMAs. Anyway we will let check this and let you know asap if this news is true and whether Rupert intends to attend the awards ceremony!

The FLMAs are a prestigious annual event aimed at celebrating the work of young filmmakers, some kind of British β€˜mini-Oscars’ for youngsters. The awards ceremony takes place on Tuesday 17 March 2009 at the Odeon Leicester Square, London, and it will be hosted by T4’s Miquita Oliver and Rick Edwards.

UPDATE: The latest pictures (see previous post) have created quite a buzz on the internet:
Heat Magazine, NY Daily News, E Online, Bloghogwarts, Quem and even The Sun.

Thanks to everyone who sent these in (Malene, KittyCA and Mollywobbles)!

UPDATE 2: And even more (thanks Mollywobbles):
El Informador and Access Hollywood!

UPDATE 3: It keeps buzzing (thanks WickedJo):

Sheez, I missed all the fun as well (damn you time zone!!), but I’ve been drooling over the pictures for some time now, and only found enough composure to comment now – I FUCKING LOVE THOSE PICTURES!!!
He looks absolutely amazing in all of them (and it’s also nice to see some pictures of the rest of the cast) – I can honestly say that this movie looks like it’s going to be the movie of the year – I probably would have said that even if the movie had a crap storyline (luckily it doesn’t πŸ˜‰ ) because Rupert is just PERFECTION!!!

Back on topic – it’s really exciting if he’s a jury member, exposure and self-promotion is really important… and of course it’ll give us some more to fangirl about πŸ˜€

I am sure noone will mind if you keep it up! :)

I am also in love with those pics… the M&M one in bed.. its so sensual… even fragile looking.. i think its because of his look in the ayes.. his whole posture and look… eh.. sigh..

Great news! I’m sure he will be enjoying it.

Okay, I fell off my chair, I hyperventilated, I cried, I was shaking, is that normal? lol
Gah, this fandom can’t get any better.

I know! If I were in a pool, there’s only one thing I’d be thinking of…
How am I supposed to go study now? Damn you Rupert.

Oh oh, I’m going to be drifting around in a swimming pool tonight as well (… with tennis balls floating around… oh, wait… maybe not). But I’ll definitely also be having CB thoughts in the pool – how loverly πŸ˜€

This quote from E! Online made me smile:

“Dear (Ron Weasley) Rupert Grint: Shirtless. Sex. Scenes. Young girls and cradle-robbers around the world thank you. Love, Rise ‘n’ Shine”‘

Thank you very much indeed πŸ˜€

I dont’ mean to be condescending, but I bet he looks adorable when he’s being pensive in a position of authority.

I bet he does too. I kinda love that it’s the horror entries that he’ll be helping judge. I hope none of them are like Hostel, because they’re screwed. lol Hopefully they’re more like The Ring.
