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. It's painfully slow (I've just reached 1998, having embarked on the project six years ago, and began at the first Academy Awards for 1927-28 – the main reason being that as the years roll by, more and more awards bodies appear and more and more categories of award pop up): 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 and depending on the progress (or otherwise) work on the cinema book is complete.
