    The Martian is officially in the comedy category for the Golden Globes (by one vote).

    RE: Globes

    Hilarious to see the "shocked" articles about The Martian getting into comedy, when this has been Fox's openly stated strategy all along. Just for comparison, other movies which recently competed in the comedy category: Birdman, Wolf of Wall Street, Nebraska, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, The Artist, Alice in Wonderland. The Martian is funnier than every one of these movies by MILES.

    Re: Ridley Scott

    Thanks Paula for finding and posting this!! I had the pleasure of attending this event with a friend. He didn't talk ALOT about 'The Martian' or Matt, so I didn't post review of my attendance. He described Matt as having dry humor and acerbic, and he described Andy Weir as a "real pistol" LOL

    I found Ridley to not be gruff, making himself laugh, and smiling several times out at the audience. He's 77 yrs old and said if any critics have problems with his films "tough titty" LOL

    London sightings

    Standing next to Matt Damon at the Regents Street Christmas lighting ceremony in downtown London. Life = complete.

    Today I was told Matt Damon came to the museum three weeks ago and went to the Cosmonauts curator talk. That's pretty neat.

    Jess Smith ‏@jesssss_xxx 3 hours ago Paddington, London

    Pic of Matt with maybe a crew member:''More recently I began filming the new "Jason Bourne" and Matt Damom.Semki passed on the street, and as you can see from the photo the day was very cold and wind, but it is hardly noticed when you work with such pros as Matt (love this guy). ;))) #jasonbourne #mattdamon #filming #acting #london''


    on set :

    little video on the set:

    Paul all smiling-(he seems to be a very nice guy)

    Bourne 5

    Thanks for this good set of pics. One, with Matt smiling, is ...mmh!
    It's weird to see Matt's double stunt!

    Btw, Matt's visit in the hospital certainly brought many joys to the little patients. This remembers me that Gia made a fall a few weeks ago and happily, watching the recent photos of the familly's stroll, she seems now in good shape.

    Jimmy Kimmel announced the Sexiest Man Alive as David Beckham and there was a Matt reference:

    Here's an unusual route to Beijing - Matt at Chinggis Khaan International Airport in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia:

    mattdamoncolumn From: mattdamoncolumn Date: November 18th, 2015 08:14 pm (UTC) (Link)

    Re: Mongolia!

    Another pic explains the detour - due to weather Matt was detained in Mongolia on the way to Beijing.


    Is that Lucy with him (plus Colin)?


    Confirmation that Bourne 5 is filming in Vegas, finishing in January.

    Matt is number 10 on Vulture's most valuable actors list:

    Ridley Scott, Sebastian Stan and Drew Goddard are already visiting the tourist sites in Beijing:
