    BAFTA's

    Nice to see Matt nominated, but I'm surprised Michael wasn't. Do you think there's any chance Matt will go to the ceremony?

    BAFTAs

    Not sure. He'll be in Berlin the previous week for the Monuments Men premiere, which then opens in the UK on 14 February, so he could stay or come back for UK press and do the ceremony. But there is no real reason for Matt to go as part of the awards circuit as the film is not an Oscar contender (although it's the first time Matt's been on par with the other actors in the category).

    Re: BAFTAs

    I am so curious what you mean, the first time he's on par? you don't think he's been on par with other nominees in the past? or do you mean just for the role of scott thorson as leading man?

    Re: BAFTAs

    It's the first time Behind the Candelabra is able to compete in the same acting category with no division for television/film (ie Matt and Michael could be potentially sitting at the back of the room for Golden Globes). Matt can therefore be judged on merit (even with allegations of category fraud re supporting/lead).

    I will be shocked if they're in the back of the room!!! But you're right, they might be.

    Can't wait to see what Lucy will be wearing to all the red carpet events this month including UNICEF! I'm thinking definitely Naeem Khan will be in the mix and I sure hope Matt leaves behind his dated tinted glasses- they really are an eye sore (no pun intended lol). Speaking of Naeem, wonder if Matt and Lucy will make it out to NYC Fashion Week and keep their 2 year tradition going.
    We shall see!

    Naeem Khan

    The Naeem Khan show is on Tuesday 11 November, which is in after the Berlin premiere and around the time of any press in London. It is unlikely they would be in NY to attend, but maybe.

    Hey, how do you search for sightings of matt on facebook?
    Open status search doesnt work anymore
    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: January 8th, 2014 08:26 pm (UTC) (Link)

    Facebook

    Open status search hasn't worked for months. They removed the searching of Facebook posts function in early December, and now the only option seems to be Icerocket, but it no longer gets all posts and you have to do a range of search tags to get more results. If anyone has any other ideas that would be great.

    A new featurette slightly different and with some comments from Matt:

    Very happy about Bafta nomination. Crossing my fingers for all these awards.

    Re: Monuments Men

    it's too bad it's not positive cos this reviewer actually sounds like he knows what he's talking about. hopefully it's all fixed in editing!!!

    Globes parties, Monuments Men

    There's no sign of Matt yet at any of the pre-Globes parties.
    http://variety.com/2014/scene/awards/golden-globes-parties-2014-the-complete-guide-1201032232/

    He didn't go to the BAFTA tea party or Sean Penn's Haiti event. There's an agent's party on Saturday evening, but the Patriots play-off game is on.

    Bob Balaban posted about the upcoming Monuments Men junket, so it might be later this week:
