THOR Red Carpet Premiere and Movie Opening May 6th – The Hammer Is Back!

Stan Lee

Stan Lee, creator of Thor (August 1962)

For any of you Stan Lee fans (yes, I am a big comic geek, all of us at MMTVN are) you’ll be excited to know that Marvel Entertainment and Paramount Pictures has a big surprise for you (us) this Friday  - THOR will be in theaters.

Thor debuted in Silver Age comics as a character is based on Thor from Norse mythology.

Journey Into Mystery Thor Issue #83 August 1962

Journey Into Mystery Thor Issue #83 August 1962

THOR has starred in several series from Journey into Mystery issue #83 in August 1962 to being a member of the superhero team known as the Avengers.

About the theatrical release of THOR

The epic adventure THOR spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the mystical realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. As a result, Thor is banished to Earth where he is forced to live among humans. When the most dangerous villain of his world sends its darkest forces to invade Earth, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero.

It was so great to see Stan Lee on the red carpet (and I can’t wait to see his cameo in the movie) and in the THOR Dr. Pepper commercial earlier this year.

Walking the red carpet at the El Capitan Theatre we saw one of my favorite actresses, Jennifer Grey and her husband Clark Gregg, who looked amazing! Kenneth Branagh, director of THOR was there and looked as dashing as ever. (check out our complete photo library on Flickr).

Chris Hemsworth AKA THOR

Chris Hemsworth AKA THOR

The star of THOR, actor, Chris Hemsworth, who is 6’3″ and from Melbourne, Australia was there. He really sells the character of THOR and audiences will be amazed at this movie. I loved this photo with him on the red carpet with his character behind.

For all you Star Trek (2009) fans, you may recognize him as George Kirk, who saves the day at the beginning of the movie. He’s also in the upcoming Avengers movie as of course the character of THOR (now filming).

THOR’s love interest Jane Foster (from the original comic story) is played by Natalie Portman who we did not see on the red carpet last night… but we did see her at the Oscars Red Carpet earlier this year… she was spotted in New York however and it’s not unreasonable to skip the 5 hour flight for the premiere as she is expecting her baby in the coming weeks.

You can watch a clip here (this is the 2nd Official Trailer for the movie)

We did also see Anthony Hopkins who plays Odin and the lovely Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis along with Jaime Alexander and Rene Russo who looked amazing as well.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2010 will be presented on Sunday, February 27, 2011, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network.  The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.

In Honor of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards: Oscar History

The Oscar statuette is the copyrighted property of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the statuette and the phrases "Academy Award(s)" and "Oscar(s)" are registered trademarks under the laws of the United States and other countries.

The Oscar Statuette

Officially named the Academy Award® of Merit, the statuette is better known by its nickname, Oscar, however, the origins of which aren’t clear. A popular story circulating about the nickname was that Margaret Herrick, Academy librarian, thought it resembled her Uncle Oscar and then the Academy staff began calling it Oscar. It wasn’t until the the sixth Awards presentation in 1934, that Hollywood columnist Sidney Skolsky actually used the name in his column in reference to Katharine Hepburn’s first Best Actress win. The Academy didn’t officially use the nickname until 1939.

Oscar stands 13 1/2 inches tall and weighs a robust 8 1/2 pounds. The design of the statuette has never changed from its original conception however the base did change until 1945 when that became standardized.

First Oscar Presentation

Just after the movies started being “talkies” the first Academy Awards were handed out on May 16th 1929 in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with 270 people in attendance.

The Academy President, Douglas Fairbanks, handed out the statuettes.

Douglas Fairbanks

Douglas Fairbanks

Fairbanks was one of the 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). He was also a very astute businessman, and was a founding member of United Artists. Back then the award recipients knew 3 months ahead of the ceremony. However, that changed as the next decade the newspapers were given advance notice for publication the night before at 11 PM before the awards. This changed again and in 1940 the LA Times announced the winners ahead of the approved time so the Academy adopted the sealed-envelope system and this is the method of announcing the winners that are used today.

Bob Hope

Bob Hope

The Academy Awards started out at banquet affairs but with the increased attendance and WWII made it impractical as the presentation ceremonies moved to a theatre setting. The 16th Academy Awards was held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and was covered by network radio to be broadcast overseas for American GIs. The Awards move from Grauman’s to the Shrine Auditorium to the Melrose Avenue Theatre and then moved to the Pantages Theatre.

It was on March 19, 1953 that the Academy Awards was first televised with Bob Hope as a master of ceremonies and was broadcast on NBC-TV and radio network. In 1961 the Awards moved to Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and changed to ABC-TV Network.

Color broadcasts started in 1966 and from 1971 – 1975 NBC-TV carried the broadcasts again. The Awards show moved back to ABC-TV in 1976 and will continue through 2014 under the current contract. (HOT NEWS: just in today 2/24/2011: ABC just received an extension to their contract for another six years through 2020.)

Kodak Theatre

Kodak Theatre

There were more venue changes from 1969 going from the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion to the LA County Music Center until 1987 when they returned back to the Shrine Auditorium. The venue switched back and forth between these two sites over the next twelve years and have been held at the Kodak Theatre since 2002.

Statuettes Awarded

The first year there were 15 statuettes awarded (14 to men and one to Janet Gaynor, Best Actress). The second year it was reduced to seven but thereafter the number of winners and categories grew steadily. In 1934 the Academy signed with Price Waterhouse to tabulate and ensure the secrecy of the results. This years ballots are going to be tabulated by PricewaterhouseCoopers (new name adopted in 1998).

There were only three times that the Academy Awards did not go off as scheduled:

  • 1938 Floods – Delayed the ceremony one week
  • 1968 Postponed in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr who had been assassinated
  • 1981 Postponed 24 hours due to the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan

One more fun fact – attendance at the Academy Awards ceremony is by invitation only and no tickets are available for the public.
