February 14th, 2016.
Yes, it's Valentines Day, and unlike all y'all who are out there paying a premium for restaurant bookings and plants and chocolates because Marketing demands it, I get to celebrate my ongoing single-hood by having my Valentines Day spent outside, in the cold, in the company of some of the most talented performers and film-makers in the world. Sadly, Charlize Theron didn't attend, otherwise "I spent Valentines Day With Charlize Theron" would have been the title of this journal. Still... I spent it with Kate Winslet and Alicia Vikander, so I'm not complaining.
It's going to be a long evening / morning of editing, so might as well get started. Here's how it went down:
So with hours of waiting and nervous jockeying for position, and hoping that the rather tall and bulky people wouldn't see me as an easy enough barrier between them and (say) Alicia Vikander..... it started to begin
"I bet after I win a Bafta for Best Animated Short you're going to be really happy you photographed me, huh?" - Nina Gantz did indeed win that award, and I was able to recall having photographed her.
So .. that was that. The Baftas. It was big, I'm tired, somehow I've got to get up in time for work tomorrow and somehow I've got to clean my apartment by Tuesday for a landlord's inspection (and I doubt saying "but... but... BAFTAs!!" is going to provide a valid reason why my apartment looks like it hosted the 76th Hunger Games)..... but in amongst all the self-pity and that one joke I managed to make in ths journal.... it was good. I enjoyed it...
and it'll go into "The Archive of Movie Premieres" where it'll join:
Until next time!
