PJ, or uh . . . ‘Sir Peter’ knighted

Peter Jackson November 2009First, HAPPY NEW YEAR WORLD! 2010 is ripe with promise for fans looking forward to the filming of two Hobbit movies to begin.

And next, Peter Jackson is now ‘Sir Peter’ as he was among a group of five New Zealanders awarded the status of ‘Knight’ or ‘Dame’ on the New Year’s list. In a written statement, Sir Peter called receiving the honor an “incredible moment”. “I didn’t think anything would surpass the 2004 Academy Awards, but I was wrong.”

A big thanks to all of those who sent in links about the story while we were enjoying the holidays with our families. There are many places to read more including: www.stuff.co.nz, www.nzherald.co.nz, and www.empireonline.com. Congrats to Sir Peter and his team who have had such a big impact on New Zealand and the world.
