THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/08/2015 LMGA recognizes NC Crew members!

Tammy might have been nominated for a Razzie, but it took in over $100 million at the worldwide box office. And we got some congratulations to give out to some NC Film peeps! The Location Managers Guild of America is recognizing our locals Mike Hewett and Lori Russell for Outstanding Locations in a Contemporary Film for the comedy. The awards ceremony will take place in Beverly Hills, March 7th! Awesome job Mike and Lori, but then again, we expect nothing less! Woo Hoo!

tAMMY_mIKE_mELISSATammy_Mike_MelissaMike was the location manager and Lori was the key assistant location manager. The LMGA only allows two people to be nominated and not the whole location department / team, but kudos goes out to the entire department!

And speaking of Tammy, last night at the People’s Choice Awards, Melissa McCarthy won for Favorite Comedic Movie Actress! Congrats lady!

Gov. Pat McCroryRemember after the election I told you about the possibility of Pat McCrory calling a special session for incentives. Well, it looks like it just might happen, HOWEVER, I was told not to get to excited because they will probably bring up everything BUT film. We shall see. It’s shame because we will lose Sleepy Hollow if they order a complete 3rd season. Canada is the latest rumor.
