Now that GM 2017 is put to bed, I'm returning (again) to another, but non-golf related, 'major' project. Back in 1999, I produced a well-liked book called Brassey's Guide to War Films. I hope to revisit that theme in due course, but meanwhile there's something even meatier, cinematically, than that to get my teeth into. A bit like Old Tom in scope and size, and very much from the same Alun Evans stable of hobby-horses, The Movie Awards Companion will document every film and film-maker that's won or been nominated for a major award; whether it be from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, or one of the important others – as well as, space allowing, the most-respected film festivals, like the Sundance and Cannes. It's painfully slow (I've just reached 1994, having embarked on the project five years ago, beginning at the awards for 1927), but it's a joy for me to plod on exploring the Awards which evoke great memories of films and their makers; and whether they were films of their time, or films for all time. More information in due course.


On the golf front, I have a few ideas to work around the Majors theme, but I am content to produce the GM annuals for the time being, until work on the cinema book is complete.
