Variety reports that Episode III Costume Designer Trisha Biggar has been nominated by the Costume Designers Guild for Excellence in Fantasy Film. She’s up against the costume designers of Batman Begins, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and Sin City. Hyperspace members can read the full story here.
Biggar discussed Episode III costumes with Variety earlier this week.
As previously reported, ROTS has a shot at three Oscars. An interesting post on a USA Today blog discusses the odds and offers fans a opportunity to chime in.
And there’s a chance that the “Below the Line” event was co-ordinated by a friend of ours. :::cough:::Jessa:::cough:::
According to the International Digital Publishing Forum, the Revenge of the Sith script was the best-selling eBook of 2005, beating, among others, The Da Vinci Code, Michael Crichton, and the Bible.
Revenge of the Sith was last year’s top earner, making $380.3 million. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, War of the Worlds, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Wedding Crashers (one of these things is not like others) round out the top 5. Thus, it’s not too suprising that several Episode 3 stars are among the top draws – Christoper Lee, Ewan McGregor, and Samuel Jackson. Liam Neeson is there too – if you can’t be a Jedi, I guess voicing Jesus in lion form and smacking around Batman are good substitutes.
The Man. The myth. The unfortunately not all that attractive 12″ General Kenobi action figure.
His costume looks great though. Wish we could preview his boots!
He can be pre-ordered at SideShow.
Thanks to Amberlee for the find!
According to Blogpulse, Revenge of the Sith was the second most blogged movie of the year. A New Hope also made it in at #24, but there are plenty of other familiar names.
Meanwhile, the Star Wars Last Supper painting we linked in May was one of the most blogged images.
Darth Vader didn’t make the ‘top people’ list, but Harry Potter did beat out President Bush, Pope John Paul II, and Britney Spears for the top spot.
Meanwhile, CJers are working on a best-of list of our own. We’ll be chat tonight (10:00pm Eastern, irc.holonet.org, #clubjade) if you’d care to join.
