Wonderful Town wins 5 Bangkok Critics Awards!

We won 5 awards from the Bangkok Critic’s Assembly last night.  The ceremony was held at the Siam City Hotel and was in marked contrast to the formal red carpet affair of the Suppanahongs Awards a few weeks ago.  This one was a more casual dinner thing. 

Wonderful Town was nominated for 9 Awards and won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Leading Actress, Best Editing, and Best Cinematography.  Here’s a picture of all the winners:

We were all very happy for Anchalee.  Her performance is a major part of the film and she hadn’t been honored before.  She was real surprised, or as she said, “I just came here for a free meal”.  But she was happy to reconnect with Ananda Everingham, who won for Best Actor.  It turns out that twelve years ago Anchalee worked as the script girl on the film Anda and Fah Sai, Ananda’s first movie role when he was only fourteen!  Now she’s no longer a script girl, she’s an award-winning actress! (and Ananda ain’t 14 anymore either…)

Ping won for Best Cinematography and we include a picture of him because even though he made another lousy speech, he’s definitely deserving of all these awards.  In fact, he is the only person from the team that has swept all the awards from every organization:  Starpics, Suppanahongs, and Critics’s Assembly.

The Best Editing award was a first for the film.  Lee Chatametikool, our editor, couldn’t make it to the ceremony so Tongdee accepted the award in his place.  He was very happy to take this picture for obvious reasons.  In fact, if Lee knew that he would be hot-sandwiched like this, he probably would have cancelled whatever appointment he had and come rushing to the stage as fast as possible.

Juke won for best director and told another lousy joke.  Hello! don’t tell any jokes! you always mess them up!  DAMN!  Anyway, feeling very lousy, he went out to face the reporters and said to them - “hey, show me some love!” - but they didn’t get that either.

So at the end of the night, we come to the conclusion that Juke should not tell any joke, Ping should just smile and not talk, Lee missed out big time, and the Critic’s Awards ceremony is a lot of fun.  We were all honored to win and celebrated by going to our usual happening party spot…Pratunam Chicken Rice Shop.
