Robert Downey Jr. accepts the People’s Choice Award

The People’s Choice Awards were live on CBS last night it look 90 minutes to get our first NC Film winner.  Robert Downey Jr. won for Favorite Action Movie Star and Iron Man 3 took the award for Favorite Action Movie.  Downey stole everyone’s attention with his lovable self.  He asked for some reverb, a spotlight, then some triumphant music.  With all three wishes granted, he proclaimed in a deep voice, “I am Iron Man.” He then raised his award and shouted, “and this is for the people!”  Awesome! Also, it wasn’t included in the live award show, but we can tell you Homeland nabbed a PCA for Favorite Premium Cable TV Show.

IM3Before the PCA’s on Wednesday, the BAFTA nominations came out.  Although ‘Gravity’ leads the British nominations with 11, NC Film is getting a little love from across the pond.  Iron Man 3 was nominated for Best Special Visual Effects.  Here is Stark’s competition:

zap2it_homeNo summer series has been more highly anticipated than Under the Dome. Based on a bestselling Stephen King novel, executive produced by A-list showrunner Neal Baer and with a cast that includes Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre and Britt Robertson, this is one summer show that isn’t debuting after the official end of the season because of a lack of network confidence. It’s intended to be a big event. So how big do you think its premiere tonight will be? MAKE YOUR PREDICTIONS NOW!
