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