Dan Hennah enjoys Oscar ceremony, One Expected Party

Ra-Simon-Dan-HobbitDan Hennah talked Oscars with the Nelson Mail (part of the Stuff.co.nz network) after the awards ceremony and the One Expected Party where he rated the official ceremony as the best of the five he has attended. He visited the Governor’s Ball and along with his wife Chris (who managed the production team on set (and was kind to TheOneRing.net embedded reporter) attended our own celebratory events afterwards. Along with the Hennahs at the party were production nominees Ra Vincent and Simon Bright (both for set decoration) and the article mentions them as well. Nelson, in New Zealand, is where the Hennahs are from, making the Academy Award winners part of the native Kiwi population, along with Peter Jackson and Richard Taylor that sprung from New Zealand soil and stand among the best in the world at their craft.

The article starts, ” Dan Hennah may not have picked up another Oscar to add to the one in the dining room in his Orinoco home but he still had a great time at yesterday’s Oscar ceremony in Los Angeles.

The Hobbit, for which Hennah was nominated for production design, lost to Lincoln in that category. Hennah said Lincoln was “a beautiful movie and it was well executed. It got what it deserved”. ”

TORn party and art show draws Oscar coverage from LAWeekly.com

ArtShow1LOS ANGELES — We are fully aware of how much we pumped up the One Expected Party and Art Show this past weekend. We poured our website’s resources and our personal resources into the event and then spent days in Los Angeles preparing and pulling off one amazing party (if we don’t say so ourselves) that featured every single “Hobbit” Oscar nominee before the night was over. We didn’t do it alone of course. We had Premiere helping us as a party enabler and we had others managing lights and food and drink for all the guests who showed up. We also relied on some incredible talents like Beecake featuring Billy Boyd, Charles Ross performing a portion of his One Man Lord of the Rings, friends Emerald Rose and Dorian Mirth and others who took the stage to make it all happen.

Opening registration for those attending the One Expected Party in Los Angeles on Oscar night.

Opening registration for those attending the One Expected Party in Los Angeles on Oscar night.

In short, the all-volunteer staff of TheOneRing poured lifeblood there. We also broadcast the event live online so many thousands (at least) more could enjoy the event from home. We will be working hard to pay the bills from the show. So that is why it is especially nice when a media outlet notices what we did and shares that with a wider audience. LA Weekly has some nice photos and words to say about our event and since we aren’t the ones saying it, it provides an excellent outside perspective. Thanks again to the many people who helped us make this event happen. Other media outlets have asked for information about the event (PR@TheOneRing.net) so there may be more to share. We have also posted galleries on Facebook and sent out Twitter phones (@TheOneRingNet) all during the event.

Weta team will party, but where?

The Weta Digital team are “tempering expectations” ahead of today’s Academy Awards – but an Oscar win would be a golden ticket to the hottest after-parties in town. Three Weta-produced films are up for visual effects Oscars: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Marvel’s The Avengers and Prometheus.

It is the first time since 1991 that a film company has received three simultaneous nominations.

Animation supervisor Dave Clayton, who worked on The Hobbit, said winning would be a bonus. “How can we not be excited – it’s pretty amazing to not only be able to attend, but to be one of the nominees. (more…)
