I was stoked to find out that Peter Morgan is writing the Bond 23 script. He’s written some great screenplays including that of Frost/Nixon (2008), The Queen (2006) and possibly my favourite, The Last King of Scotland (2006). For the director we’re looking at Sam Mendes – Revolutionary Road (2008), Jarhead (2005), Road to Perdition (2002) and American Beauty (1999). So two pretty big guns!

This year’s British Academy Awards take place on Sunday. Here’s the lowdown on the nominations and a few predictions from yours truly on what I think/hope might occur awards-wise.
Well the Oscar nominations are out. I’m not going to go through the whole list (which you can see here), but here’s my outlook. Slumdog and Danny Boyle have been nominated for 11. I really hope they get some of these as Danny Boyle deserves awards and the cast were superb. I’d love Boyle to pick up best director and Slumdog to get best picture. Also, It’d be only fair for Mickey Rourke to get best actor for The Wrestler. I’m suprised Downey Jr’s got a nomination as best supporting actor for Project Thunder but he’s awesome and played a very funny character. Heath should (and probably will) get it for The Dark Knight though. I’ve yet to watch a lot of the nominated films (quite a few aren’t out here in the UK yet, like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Milk).
