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!

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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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


I’m so happy V-day is almost over.

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

“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!

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!!!

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. 🙂
