"Wellywood is fast becoming the new Hollywood, with the New Zealand film industry set to feature at the upcoming Oscars, after several films collected awards at a precursor ceremony."
Love that quote... Apart from the Golden Globes Awards, Wellywood is up for awards for Avatar, District 9, Lovely Bones - and kiwi girl Anna Paquin is doing pretty well also. She may not have won the Golden Globes, but getting that far (for the second time!) is one hell of an achievement! Well done, Anna!
UPDATE (Jan 20 2010):
Mark Sagar from Weta Digital gets some gold too! Congratulations to Weta and to Mark!
Ok, no Hobbit news here, move along, nothing to see.
