I AM INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED NOW.

Not only am I (evidently) popular in Russia, Italians love my sleaze and have awarded me for it.

By which I mean that Blood on the Highway, in which I play a (sleazy) main character, in which a relative unknown by the name of "Nicholas Brendon" also appears in the film, has won the TOP JURY PRIZE* at the Kimera Film Festival. Guys, it beat out serious documentaries like "Wasted." (I won't lie: I felt a twinge of guilt. But fuck it, they've won awards in other festivals.) It also won the Audience Favorite prize, which is completely cool.

I may be at minute 14, but I'm holding on! We have some kind of physical award coming in the mail. Frakking awesome. See?!?! I TOLD YOU IT WAS FUNNY!!

You like me! You really like me! Ahahahaha.

* means that the judges/critics picked our movie over every single other submission as the best of the festival. I don't know if they're smoking crack over there, or if it really is that damn funny. I'm going with the last one. :D

[ETA] Because I'm Forgetful Jones. If you want to relive the horror of making a horror movie, CLEEEEEK.

There was a conference call with lots of "OH MY GOD!!" and laughter between the cast, and it's just freaking COOL.

Your armpits smell of SUCCESS! (Good thinking, sticking that money in there.)

YAY!!

Let's see. The next showing is in San Antonio at a festival on the 21rst, then it goes back to Dallas, then to LA in July. I think we've got a Canadian film festival in the works, Chicago, and... Philly? That's just for now, if we can get a good deal on distribution, it'll come to a theater near you and you can witness the Nicholas Brendon glory!

YOU ARE A GODDAMN MOVIE STAH NOW. LIKE, FOR REALS.

Holy hell, do you think paparazzi will now stalk you and Mr. Stoney? Angelina and Brad who? Oooo, maybe you'll be in Us Weekly's "Stars! They're Just Like Us!" section, with a pic of you gardening or beating your chi'rens. ONE CAN ONLY HOPE.

In all seriousness, that is so fanfuckingtastic! I am so thrilled for you, and you won a FUCKING AUDIENCE FAVORITE PRIZE. Dude. Duuuuuuuuude. That's awesome on every level.

Is that not the most awesome and hilarious thing?! Italians love tits, what can I say. I can't believe the white trash (treasure, I thank you. White Treasure) translated!

AHAHAHAHAHAH. "They smack their kids around and eat gallons of ice cream to numb the pain, just like us!"

Not only did we win the audience prize, we won the GRAND JURY prize. That means out of every single film, the critics liked ours the best! DUDE!!!!!

It's still doing the festival circuit. (The more wins it garners, the more they can ask.) THEN it goes to theaters NEAR YOU. (Unless there's a festival near you, in which case I will notify you ASAP!)

Jun. 4th, 2008 03:06 am (UTC)
No, no one was out there for they're all poor arteests. :) (I was sad because I could have gone! But they want directors and producers, usually. "But I have tits!" I cried. "They're Italians, they like tits!")

Ahahaha.

Yay! So. Flippin'. AWESOME! It's good to know that your fake pink nails were not for nothin'.

Quick! Gimme your autograph while it's still free. It is still free, right?

Jun. 4th, 2008 03:22 am (UTC)
It's SO awesome and cool, to boot! (Yay Nicky being in an award winning movie now, too!) Free? Only for now! Ahahaha.

(Dude. Okay, I'm jumping the gun, but still. What if this gets big? Like, cult-classic big and there are invites to CONVENTIONS. Where there could be potential hobnobbing with people I have written RPF about like?)

To quote Keanu Reeves, "Whoa."

No, that doesn't fit. Let me quote Joey from Blossom: "Whoa!"

It may go to Denver! They're trying to hit a bunch of the small, hip fests, and I'm sure Denver fits right in!

Hahahaha, I'm a regular Renaissance Woman! :D

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
