Award Ceremonies Today!


February 14, 2009, 11:54 AM–First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! This is just a quick reminder to all of you, not to miss the award ceremonies today. The main ceremony at Berlinale takes place today at 19:30 CET (1:30pm EST). There will be live streaming and here’s the schedule: 

18.45 CET Red Carpet
19.30 CET Gala Ceremony
21.00 CET Press Conference

As you know, the movie Cherrybomb starring Rupert Grint is competing for the Best First Feature Award — this prize is awarded by a three-member strong international jury. You may read about it here. Good luck Lisa and Glenn!

Then, a few hours later, to be precise at  9:30pm GMT (4:30pm EST) the 6th Annual Irish Film and Television Awards ceremony takes place. David Holmes is nominated for his scores for movies Hunger and Cherrybomb. The ceremony will broadcast live on RTÉ One, and selected highlights from the IFTAs will be broadcast on BBC Two Northern Ireland at 7pm GMT on Monday 16 February.

Good luck David, oh and Happy birthday! 

Note: if anyone could record any of these shows and send us the clips, we’d be very grateful!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Lisa and Glenn did not win the First Time Feature Award. :( It went to film Gigante
by Adrián Biniez, while Fredrik Edfeldt got a special mention for his film Flickan. Fingers crossed for David Holmes!

UPDATE 2:  From everyone here on the ICM staff, we want to wish a well-deserved congratulations to the talented David Holmes for his score, on the movie ‘Hunger’.  He’s most certainly made fans out of the entire ICM staff and everone who’s listened to the soundtrack to ‘Cherrybomb’ We’re sure there will be more awards for him in the future and wish him the best of luck!
Oh and don’t forget to leave him messages on his MySpace, he will appreciate your support!

Sweet! I didn’t forgot. It’s exciting. I wish them the very best. I still can’t get enough of this movie. Ivana how’s the kid?

February 14th, 2009 at 12:28 PM

He’s sleeping right now, but he’s all feverish, poor little thing, and he can’t stop coughing. Oh well, what can you do, kids get ill all the time.

February 14th, 2009 at 12:39 PM

I really hope CB win, not only for Rupert but all the production team, for all your comments about that I think they did a wonderful job and excelent movie so they really deserve it. Good luck.

February 14th, 2009 at 12:40 PM

Ahhh ok well hope he gets well soon. I am in the process off adding pictures and cleaning up the CB pics in the gallery. It’s looking so good. :)

February 14th, 2009 at 12:52 PM

No trailer sadly fleur.

February 14th, 2009 at 12:59 PM

Good luck Lisa, Glenn and DAvid!!!! :)

I have programmed my dvd recorder to record a show on German tv about the award ceremony. According to the tv program guide it will be 100 minutes long. Unfortunately my d*mn recorder sometimes stops the recording on its own. I hope it works out though.

I also programmed a special retrospection of the Berlinale. It’s about two hrs long and maybe, hopefully, they also cover a bit of the Generation section, CB and Rupert’s appearance. From what I’ve seen on other Berlinale coverage, they normally concentrate on the main competition. I haven’t seen anything about CB yet. But lets hope.

February 14th, 2009 at 1:00 PM

thanks marisol!!!!! well.. Egypt was reeeeeeeeally cool and hot aswell!!! but i think it was a really good experience!!!!
OMG i have lots of news to catch!!

thanks again!

February 14th, 2009 at 1:01 PM

I told my dad to record as well, but he said the sound has been dodgy the last few times… :(

February 14th, 2009 at 1:11 PM

Well thanks guys whatever you can get is cool! :)

February 14th, 2009 at 1:14 PM

Good to know you enjoyed Egypt, you should have gone to Alexandria, it was freezing there the last week or so.
I come from Egypt if you haven’t noticed by now lmao.

February 14th, 2009 at 1:36 PM

I’m watching on TV, and they showed a 5sec clip of My Suicide.

February 14th, 2009 at 1:44 PM

Whines. I want CB to do good. sigh.

February 14th, 2009 at 1:44 PM

Oh no! First time feature went to Flickan, another film :(

February 14th, 2009 at 1:47 PM

What is Flickan! Oh well.

February 14th, 2009 at 2:02 PM

I’ll be off for a while, need to call my friend!

February 14th, 2009 at 2:03 PM

wooow lucky are you marisol !!!!

pretty busy with rupert now isnit???


do i have to know something really important about him that you learned this week???


February 14th, 2009 at 2:08 PM

:( I’m sad now.

February 14th, 2009 at 2:26 PM

The award went to Gigante and Flickan got a special mention.

Here’s hoping for Dublin!

February 14th, 2009 at 2:26 PM

Well let’s hope CB does well in Dublin. I mean, it’s an Irish-themed film, I guess it’ll be received better there. :)

February 14th, 2009 at 3:24 PM

“now i’m really depressed…” no, really….

February 14th, 2009 at 4:56 PM

I need something to be well again. New Cherrybomb pics, footage or the TRAILER!

February 14th, 2009 at 4:59 PM

Himera, there will be more festivals and awards! Don’t be sad. Take Rupes advice: Keep Calm and Carry On

February 14th, 2009 at 5:07 PM

jo when does the flykillers cd come out

February 14th, 2009 at 5:24 PM

Manda I don’t know really. Just google them for info or check out their myspace. Guys I would fret over something like this, CB will do fine!

February 14th, 2009 at 8:01 PM

I’m not going to fret. I feel that the language thing was a barrier and therefore it will probably be more well received in Dublin. And it’s not like it wasn’t well received in Berlin, either; it will just be better in Dublin. :)

New trio:


February 14th, 2009 at 8:06 PM

new trio!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! love it!

February 14th, 2009 at 9:53 PM

I just want to say that the Cheers theme just came on my media player and it make me think of ICM! Love you all!

February 14th, 2009 at 9:53 PM

lol “Goodbye Friend” is on now. 😀

sorry for double post. lol

February 14th, 2009 at 9:55 PM

It’s OK it is Valentines day. I hope Rupert got lots of choclate and some hearts. :)

February 14th, 2009 at 11:18 PM

I hope he does too. As a single woman…well…


I’m so happy V-day is almost over.

February 14th, 2009 at 11:41 PM

Sorry for double post again. I just saw that David won for Hunger! Congrats, David!

February 14th, 2009 at 11:54 PM

“As a single woman…well…I’m so happy V-day is almost over.”

Yes, me too! haha. All these lovey dovey movies all on the t.v, and this sickening obligatory romantic nonsense. *sigh* I wonder how many people broke up ’cause they forgot to get each other chocolates and “be mine” candies. hhaha. j/k.

February 15th, 2009 at 12:27 AM

Congratulations, David!

February 15th, 2009 at 12:27 AM


February 15th, 2009 at 12:33 AM

Oh, and me three about V-Day! I dread this day every single year because It makes me feel like such a loser. I’m glad it’s almost over.

February 15th, 2009 at 12:42 AM

I love valentines day, yes this year I am single but it doesn’t mean I still didn’t have a good time. Rupert is single too as far as we know so I wonder what he did. Ahhhhhhhhh I hope he had a good one. I would love to be his valentine te-he. toooooooo much wine tonight!!!

February 15th, 2009 at 12:48 AM

There are other reasons that today sucked for me, but I’m trying not to think about it. Let’s just say that a phone call woke me up this morning and defined my day. See chit-chat thread for details if you’re curious.

February 15th, 2009 at 1:02 AM

I agree, Jo. How many women stayed home and felt badly they didn’t have a date? I say, why sit home and feel bad, when you can take yourself out! Nothing wrong with it. :)

February 15th, 2009 at 1:08 AM

Hell yeah actually I had a damn good night. I just got back from Berlin and seen me some hot sex ginger God, what more is there to celebrate?

February 15th, 2009 at 1:34 AM

I know, girl! That’s going to last you until NEXT Valentine’s Day!!!

February 15th, 2009 at 1:44 AM

lol I’m listening to “Let’s Talk about Sex” by Salt ‘n’ Pepa

Holla!!! lol

February 15th, 2009 at 2:19 AM

It sucks not to have access to the RS section anymore… :(

lol how many post do you have to have to get senior anyway?

February 15th, 2009 at 2:20 AM

Oh, and any news from a distributor? :)

February 15th, 2009 at 4:21 AM

No news yet about a distributor.

My Valentine’s day was spent in the laboratory with dead feet. o.o
I could imagine better ways to spend it, though…

And YAY for David Holmes! :)

February 15th, 2009 at 6:46 AM

OH, well. I’m a single woman too. But I’m old and have accepted the fact that it will stay that way. So. Valentine’s day doesn’t bother me any more. I try to take it with humour. LoL.

And I think we shouldn’t be sad or disappointed that CB didn’t win anything. We should be proud of Rupert and the whole team it did get nominated. In two categories!!! That is quite a feat and already a success of its own, IMO.

The most important thing for us I think is that CB manages to get a distributor, so we are all able to see it in the theatres.

And congratulations to David Holmes. did he really win? well, that’s great, isn’t it? 😀

February 15th, 2009 at 8:07 AM

Good morning girls! Yay for David Holmes – don’t forget to leave him messages on his Myspace!
Karo are you there? I emailed you. :)
