Gala Tribute to Cate Blanchett at NYFF51 and Bill Nighy

This week has been a grand week at Lincoln Center with the NYFF51 in full swing.

I met Bill Nighy and that was a huge thrill. Richard Curtis, one of my favorite directors was there along with Domhnall Gleeson. Sorry I didn't take pictures. Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson, along with Rachel McAdams are in Richard Curtis' new film, 'About Time.' This was a movie that was just about the best feel good movie of all time. I loved every single moment of it. Don't miss it. Awesome!

The next night was the tribute to Cate Blanchett who was beautiful and funny. There was a showing of 'Blue Jasmine' after the interview and montage of Cate films. I've seen 'Blue Jasmine' twice already. She is tremendous in it and of course it's excellent. It's a Woody Allen movie. Woody even had some screen time where he told Cate how great it had been working with her and that he hoped to do it again. She was touched by his comments and asked the interviewer, "How'd you get him to do that?"

Enjoy the pictures.....

Also, saw a screening of 'Galaxy.'  Tremendous. Oscar stuff!
