I was pleased to hear from several friends that Bon Cop / Bad Cop won Best Picture at last night's Genie Awards. (The Genies are Canada's Academy Awards.) Maurie Richard: The Rocket swept most of the other awards. Sunday, I'm off to the Jutra Awards (French Canada's Academy Awards) to see if the screenplay picks up an award.

I got some even better news yesterday, too , since you cannot trade honors for food: Telefilm has funded further development on my spec feature Medieval. That ought to keep us in extra cheese pizza for a while. (Zesto's charges extra for extra cheese. "Cheese like gold," says Tarik.) For the past few months I've been feeling officially sanguine about work in the pipeline -- I have something like half a dozen projects that are looking seriously promising, and a few more I could luck out on -- but ever so slightly nervous, 'cause "promising" is another thing you can't eat. This is the first major project to go from promising to paying this year. We'll see what shakes out in the next few months. Thank goodness I got ahead of the game on my pilot, which I hope to finish this week or the next...

congrats and good luck on Sunday.

don't forget to tape studio 60!!! oh wait you can get it on monday too.

Montreal's pizzarias have always been generous with the cheese but Tariq is partially wrong- Good cheese is like gold, most cheese is like gold leaf.
Hope the awrds fall your way and that Medieval gets you that extra cheese.

Thanks, Hawise. Mef, I'm done with Studio 60. The last one left me feeling "mneh" and wondering if Sorkin is back on the coke or what. I deleted its timer last night.

Good luck on Sunday! We'll think good thoughts for you. And yay for last night! I thought Kevin's speech was great, he's a bit of a character (in a good way).

Congratulations, Alex. I was thrilled when I found out early this morning that Bon Cop had won best picture. That's friken awesome, dude. I'm thrilled for you. I also look forward to further developments on the Medieval front.

Hey Alex -

Congrats.

Now you know you made it. I'm in Shanghai for a meeting and while going through the hottest pirated DVD's saw a copy of Bon Cop!

Wanted to buy it - but figured I'd wait to make sure the extra 38cents found its way back to you.

Congrats as well Alex. Hope the rest come off for a clean sweep for you.

cheers
Dave
