Awards seasons, like the one we are in the middle of, could easily give you the impression it is all about actors, actresses and directors.
The big ceremonies like the Oscars and the BAFTAs are largely made up of presentations in those categories. They’re the ones that get all the publicity. It is understandable that the people you see on the screen, and the person considered responsible for where they are placed within its borders, get all the attention.
However, film-making involves a lot of different disciplines, and I’m not talking Fifty Shades Of Grey-style discipline.
Amongst the many awards events at this time of year is the Art Directors Guild Excellence In Production Design Awards. The 19th running occurred a couple of weeks ago, at the end of January. Production designers for, amongst others, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Birdman, Game Of Thrones, and The Big Bang Theory won in various categories. Even the Oscars won an award. Have we reached the (no pun intended) stage where award shows are winning awards?
Back in 2005 Walk The Line was the big hit movie talking all the plaudits, and an ADG award. TV series Rome and TV movie Empire Falls were also recipients.
Actually, everyone was a winner in 2005 because Kathryn attended that year. So far, this event has evaded this site like some evade taxes. We’re closing that loophole right now!
14 photos of Kathryn at the Art Directors Guild Awards in 2005 are now in the KM UK Gallery. Thanks to smallbarbie for her help with these.
From the slightly ridiculous to the sublime.
The KM UK time machine has got stuck in 2005. The TARDIS was always rather temperamental so why should our KMARDIS (no?) be any different. It must be too much water in the works, or something.
For this latest hit of nostalgia we move on the 7th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards held on February 19th, 2005.
Now, I can’t claim to know about these things but I get the impression that Kathryn’s outfit (as so wonderfully modelled by her on the left) is the sort of dress that little girls dream of. A real fairy princess look.
I do feel that I can, however, speak for slightly older boys and say “we likey!” 😛
As much as I hate being a pedant (OK, I love it) but aren’t the costume designers nominated for their work on TV and in films? In that case doesn’t it seem odd that all actresses turn up to the event in designer outfits and not the costumes being honoured? It would make for a very different red carpet if they did. Kathryn certainly never wore that outfit on Cold Case. I’d definitely remember that! Best. Episode. Ever!
The next CDG Awards is due to take place this coming Saturday (22nd Feb).
2 large and one small photo, and 3 videos, of Kathryn attending the CDGAs in 2005 are now in KM UK the Gallery.
Kathryn looked dressed for winter back in February of 2005. Appropriately enough because it was winter!
I know I could do with a bit of warming up myself, it’s been pretty cold here in England the past few weeks. And who better than Kathryn as she looks pretty hot here. Or just pretty. And hot 😉
In the previous post we saw that Kathryn had escaped Los Angeles and headed to the southern hemisphere at this time of year in 2008. Our way-back machine has to work even harder this time to reach 2005 for this one. Feb 10th, 2005, to be precise.
A party was held to celebrate the launch of a book called Intent To Live by the renowned acting coach Larry Moss. Apparently, everybody who is anybody in Hollywood has been taught or helped by Mr Moss at some stage in their career.
We don’t know actually know if Kathryn is amongst them but her presence at this event quite early in her career would suggest she is. Oops, I’d forgotten this: the official KM website does actually that Kathryn trained with Larry for 8 years. Of course, the same “About” text contains numerous errors…
You can see more about Larry Moss and his work on his own website here.
3 small photos of Kathryn attending the Intent To Live book party are now available in the KM UK the Gallery.
I did consider coming up with an alternative title for this post to avoid the use of a potentially awkward word, but that would not be the right thing to do. Such important issues should not be swept under the carpet to spare a few blushes. Over the past year the issues around rape seems to have hit the headlines a lot because of certain strongly held views on women and women’s health issues. Wrong views we should stress.
The latest edition of this event, an annual benefit and brunch for the Rape Treatment Center, Santa Monica, California, happened just last weekend (Sunday, 29 September) but we are heading back to 2005 when Kathryn attended. As you can see above fellow CBS crime drama star Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows in CSI: Las Vegas) and were Kathryn’s two Cold Case co-stars Thom Barry and John Finn (see below right).
Unlike Kathryn, Marg will be back on CBS this season with a new action drama called Intelligence, co-starring Josh Holloway (Sawyer in Lost). It is slated to start in February, once another new show Hostages completes it first season run. Both shows have fewer episodes than many of the big networks high profile shows.

34 photos have now been added to the Gallery.
The title of this occasion (or at least part of if) seemed a fitting follow-on from the anniversary marked yesterday of the 9/11 tragedies. We should not forget that events like those are not just about those lost, but those that acted heroically in putting others first.
Of course, this particular charitable event we are looking at today was not about that day in September 2001.
‘Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation A Time For Heroes Celebrity Carnival’ is an annual event to raise funding and awareness for the cause of HIV and AIDS in children, focusing mainly on Africa and India. Founder Elizabeth Glaser herself contracted HIV during a blood transfusion and unknowingly passed it on to her children. Discovering that the then current treatments were solely aimed at adults drove her to set up the Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Elizabeth spent the rest of her life advocating for the issue.
You can read more about the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation on their website HERE.
Back in June of 2005 Kathryn attended the Time For Heroes event. Formal attire was clearly not required Not that Kathryn looked anything other than gorgeous in her more casual jeans, t-shirt, cardy and sneakers 😉
This is one that has been missing from the KM Gallery since its inception. We’ll put that right today in some style with a small collection of photos and a couple of videos now in the Gallery.
