Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
The Oscars for me is a celebration of film, something that unites the world in looking film both obscure and commercial for a few hours every year. I still get the wide-eyed feeling I had as a kid watching the Oscars. Fuck yeah, they’re frustrating, they’re full of self-congratulation and surface-level schmoozing, but beyond all that is a real tribute to film and filmmaking that is an event for anybody who even has a passing interest in films.
So, today I picked a photo for a movie that was nominated for Best Picture, but like many deserving films didn’t win. This shot from the set of Frank Darabont’s The Green Mile features three of my favorite dudes, tops in their own categories. Director Frank Darabont, author Stephen King and actor Tom Hanks pose with Ol’ Sparky.
Now I’m going to head out and enjoy the Oscars with some friends. Thanks to reader Craig Cesmystruk for sending this shot along. Hope you guys enjoy it!
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic is Viggo!
