KM UK Awards 2018

The KM UK Awards like to stay up to date with current trends, reflecting what is going on around us all.  Some would call it it band-wagon jumping for comic effect, opportunist, or just lazy writing.  And those people could be best described as… correct.  It’s just a bit of fun after all.

There have been several high profile political movements this past year, denoted increasingly more regularly these days with a hash tag.  #MeToo for instance was used in reference to women speaking out against abuse and discrimination they’ve suffered for far too long.

Here at KM UK we will certainly not be trivialising such important issues.  Instead we will be going old school and referencing a television phenomenon from the recent-ish past, that is still very much in the news today:  You’re Fired!  (Ironically said by a boss to a candidate going through a prolonged televised job interview and therefore was not in a position to be fired.)  It feels like everyday at the moment someone in a high profile role is getting fired.  Either they’ve done something wrong and getting rid of them is seen as serving a purpose.  Or, they’ve done the right thing and that reflects badly on someone higher up.  It also means we can used the same icon as last year :-)

Welcome to the 2018 KM UK Awards.

Reverie WonderCon Screening Date

wondercon_logo_765x679As reported by KM UK last week the new NBC sci-fi-ish drama series Reverie will be getting a special preview screening at the upcoming WonderCon convention in Anaheim, California.

In the past couple of days a full schedule of the 3-day event has been released so we can now pin-point when and where that screening will take place.

The whole event kicks of at lunchtime on Friday the 23rd of March 2018.  Sci-fi fans aren’t morning people :-)  Turn up a little late and you’ll miss Reverie as it is scheduled for 3:30pm on that first day.

The screening will take place in the recently opened North section of the Anaheim Convention Center.  First used in September 2017 this annexe adds a significant amount of extra space and is accessible via a covered walkway from the main three halls.  The room in question is called North 200A.

As things stand it does not look like any of the actors or producers will be attending but who know what might change in the next two weeks.

So that is Friday, 23rd March, 3:30pm, room North 200A.  Got it?

The Comic-Con website HERE has all the necessary details.

Reverie @ WonderCon Anaheim 2018

artwork_002Well at least some people are going to get to see Reverie this month.

A preview screening of the show pilot/first episode will be screened for attendees of the WonderCon Anaheim 2018 event.

Running for the long weekend 23rd-25th March the Comic-Con-related convention returns to the northern Californian, Orange County city of Anaheim for 2018.  It is primarily a comic book show but has expanded to include films/TV based on superhero characters.  They’ve obviously stretched things further to include a TV series like Reverie.

The specific timings on the Reverie screening have not yet been revealed but for now more details on the event and tickets are available on the Comic-Con website HERE.

Kathryn @ CDG Awards – Feb 2005 Update

cdga_03We are deep in the midsts of awards season.

The BAFTAs were last weekend (18th Feb).  The Oscars are next weekend (4th March).  The British Music Awards were a few days ago.  The Grammy awards ceremony happened at the end of January.  The MTV Europe Music Awards are…. OK, they’re ages away (November!).  Don’t worry, the KM UK annual awards will be in a few weeks.

To jump on this bandwagon, and to make up a little for the lack of posts recently, it is time to go back in time to awards ceremonies gone by.  The Costume Designers Guild Awards in 2005 to be precise.

If it was 2013/2014 this post would just be Frozen reference after Frozen reference regarding Kathryn and her fairy princess dress.  But we’re all so sick of Frozen references.  Let it go already!  Sorry :-)  The release of a sequel late next year will no doubt kick it all off again though.  That should kill off the current unicorn craze, unless Frozen 2 includes a unicorn!

The lady sharing the sofa with Kathryn and the boys in the image above is costume designer Jill Taylor.    Presumably Kathryn, Danny and John presented Jill’s award to her, which is why they are pictured together afterwards.  She won for her work on the film The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers.  The biopic about the late actor/comedian starred a host famous names including Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech), Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road), and Emily Watson (Punch-Drunk Love).

The KM UK Gallery has now been updated with 12 new images (and a small update to #10).

Paycheck Première 2003

003For various reasons it has been a quiet December on KM UK.

To make up for it we’re going to take a trip to an Xmas past.  It’s an Xmas present to enjoy for the Xmas (in the near) future.  See what I did there? :-)

Fourteen, yes 14!, years ago today (18th December 2003) the action/sci-fi-ish movie Paycheck got the red carpet treatment at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.  The general release started a week later on the 25th.

Strikes me as an odd time to bring out a movie.  In the UK that would never happen.  The big day is a national holiday so places like cinemas are not open, Boxing Day maybe.  I know that in the US Thanksgiving is more significant like that.

It had not occurred to me before but the wonderful red colour of Kathryn’s dress is a little bit Xmas-y.  Wonder if it was deliberate.  As there is not much more to it than the colour hopefully winter in Hollywood was not cold that evening :-)

Last updated in 2010 I’ve added 12 more photos to the Paycheck première gallery here.  That’s one large image (the one above) and 11 medium sized ones.
