Image
A big CONGRATULATIONS to Oscar NomineeRosamund Pike (as Amazing Amy Dunne image still via Gone Girl's official FB page)for winning a BEST ACTRESS award for Gone Girl at the Jameson Empire Awards 2015 at the Grosvenor House Hotel on March 29, 2015 in London, England. Miss Pike was a no show at the award ceremony as there were neither red carpet photos of her nor award show photos of her accepting her award except for a couple screen captures (which looked like from when she was at the Oscars Luncheon last month) of her shown during the award show via Getty Images below.

Here's her Empire Award acceptance speech that was sent in which she said:
"I cannot believe that the one time I can’t attend an award ceremony is the one time I win, I’ve become so accomplished at losing I have no idea what to say now I’ve won."Ros beat out her former P&P co-star Keira Knightley (for ) for the Best Actress category:

It's official, Downton Abbey to end its series run after Season 6! A movie next?

Image
As I've previously posted 5 days ago on P&P NewsBits here, Downton Abbey(co-star asIsobel Crawley) is now officially ending its series after Season 6. According to Deadline, NBCUniversal-owned Carnival Films, the producer ofDownton Abbey, today announced that Season 6 will be the final season of the worldwide hit TV drama. The news isn’t entirely surprising, given that last January NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt told TV critics Julian Fellowes long awaited NBC period drama The Gilded Age had been put on the front burner – disturbing news for Downton fans, given that he writes every episode of the PBS hit.

Happy Birthday Keira Knightley!

Image
This Pride & Prejudice (2005) movie gets me every time whether re-watching it countless of times in nearly a decade or seeing its gorgeous movie poster, screen captures, and amazing stills, or listening to its timeless OST, and seeing a few of its beautiful filming locations in person. No matter how many times I've seen this movie, this P&P version just never gets oldin my viewing. I can't believe this movie is almost 10 years old in September of this year. Time sure flies fast. It seems just like yesterday that I was anticipating, so excited and couldn't wait to see this movie. At the time, I was thinking, finally...there's a P&P movie version that I can actually get into, which made me go back and finished reading the book, and made me a huge fan of of all things P&P.

Speaking of P&P movie, and since today's Thursday...here's a throwback to my favorite P&P version and OTP: Elizabeth & Darcy's random, memorable and unforgettabl…
