Dan Hennah enjoys Oscar ceremony, One Expected Party Can't Post

Ra-Simon-Dan-HobbitDan Hennah talked Oscars with the Nelson Mail (part of the Stuff.co.nz network) after the awards ceremony and the One Expected Party where he rated the official ceremony as the best of the five he has attended. He visited the Governor's Ball and along with his wife Chris (who managed the production team on set (and was kind to TheOneRing.net embedded reporter) attended our own celebratory events afterwards. Along with the Hennahs at the party were production nominees Ra Vincent and Simon Bright (both for set decoration) and the article mentions them as well. Nelson, in New Zealand, is where the Hennahs are from, making the Academy Award winners part of the native Kiwi population, along with Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor that sprung from New Zealand soil and stand among the best in the world at their craft.

The article starts, " Dan Hennah may not have picked up another Oscar to add to the one in the dining room in his Orinoco home but he still had a great time at yesterday's Oscar ceremony in Los Angeles.

The Hobbit, for which Hennah was nominated for production design, lost to Lincoln in that category. Hennah said Lincoln was "a beautiful movie and it was well executed. It got what it deserved". "

You can read the rest right here.

Thanks for the info [In reply to] Can't Post

Such a big fan of Dan's. One of those people it would be amazing to have dinner with.

...she took the point at once, but she also took the spoons.

The Party-goers really did come unglued [In reply to] Can't Post

when our Kiwi Fellowship appeared at the Party! We are SO proud of them and what they've accomplished. It's especially thrilling that they would all come to our Party and give us the chance to let them know how much they mean to us... and a chance for them to receive the appreciation from us that they so much deserve!

*hands still hurt from applause*

What a thrill to see them! The statues are an honour to receive, but we're WAY beyond whether cast and crew are carrying gold or not. THEY are our treasure!

So... [In reply to] Can't Post

when are we going to get moot reports from those who attended? (A bit of pity, please, on those who wish to attend vicariously!)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

That's awesome that he was there! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm so glad this fandom really unites eveeryone and so glad that the staff from The Hobbit come to be with fellow fans... that is what makes the movie and its actors and producers so cool. They are so personable! I love that he was humble to say that LIncoln deserved Production Design. :) Lincoln was a good movie but production design could've been for The Hobbit, imho....
but Hennah is so cool to say that.

"By Elbereth and Luthien the fair, you shall have neither the Ring nor me!" ~Frodo

"And then Gandalf arose and bid all men rise, and they rose, and he said: 'Here is a last hail ere the feast endeth. Last but not least. For I name now those who shall not be forgotten and without whose valour nought else that was done would have availed; and I name before you all Frodo of the Shire and Samwise his servant. And the bards and the minstrels should give them new names: Bronwe athan Harthad and Harthad Uluithiad , Endurance beyond Hope and Hope Unquenchable.." ~Gandalf, The End of the Third Age , from The History of Middle Earth series
