Bulga boy recognised at Academy Awards for movie technology

THE red carpet has been mothballed for another year, the flashes faded and the gold statues packed away, but Bulga is still celebrating its first Academy Award winner.

Martin Tlaskal and his company FilmLight were recognised at the Academy's Scientific and Technical Awards for pioneering post-production technology used in films from Brokeback Mountain to The Hangover.

I'm posting here because this is the closest to NZ that I could find  :D


Pulitzer Prize-winning US novelist Annie Proulx will be a special guest at the biennial Hastings Festival of Writers in April.

Proulx, who will be in New Zealand to promote her new memoir, won the prize in 1994 for her novel, The Shipping News, later made into a successful film, and her short story, Brokeback Mountain, was adapted for the big screen, going on to win Academy, BAFTA and Golden Globe awards.

She will join some of New Zealand's literary heavyweights, such as New Zealand Poet Laureate Cilla McQueen, short fiction writer and novelist Owen Marshall, and Wellington poet and past laureate Jenny Bornholdt for the April 1-3 event.

About ChillOut

From humble beginnings, ChillOut has grown to become the biggest and longest-running queer pride event in regional Australia, and the largest festival in Hepburn Shire. While events in the capital cities might be a lot bigger, ChillOut retains a relaxed, down-to-earth atmosphere with plenty of opportunities to let your hair down, and has found a special place in the hearts of gay men and lesbians across Australia – and the world.

The Australian of the Year, Ita Buttrose, is a supporter of marriage equality - not that it was mentioned during the official ceremony. (She is now campaigning against the stigmatisation of the aged and people with Alzheimer's.)

26 Jan 13
AME media release

Marriage equality advocates have welcomed the announcement of Ita Buttrose as Australian of the Year.
Buttrose, a long-time supporter of gay rights and HIV prevention, endorsed marriage equality ahead of the 2011 Labor National Conference which changed Labor policy to allow same-sex marriage (copy of her tweet below), as well as on Valentines Day 2012 in response to Magda Szubanski coming out as gay.

Australian Marriage Equality national convener, Rodney Croome, said,

“Gay and lesbian Australians have an extra reason to celebrate this Australia Day thanks to the announcement of Ita Buttrose as Australian of the Year.”

“Ita’s unequivocal support for marriage equality is yet another example of how this far-sighted Australian has led where the rest of the country has followed.”

“It’s my hope the honouring of such a high-profile supporter of marriage equality will send a positive message to our national leaders about the need for reform.”

Ita Buttrose has been recognised for her contribution to Australian society as an influential magazine editor and as a champion of a range of important social issues and charities.

Tweet written by Ita Buttrose, 2.12.11:
“Gay men and women should be able to marry. So hope ALP delegates don’t wimp out on this issue. I believe in marriage equality for all”
