FilmJerk.com - The Early Report for January 19, 2004 Note one error: Beyond the Sea is not Kevin Spacey's first film as a director, although he'd like to forget Albino Alligator, and the rest of us already have. It is, however, the first time he has directed himself.

Burton's "Big Fish" Nets BAFTA Boost: "The Hollywood director's fantastical Big Fish made its strongest awards-show showing yet, catching seven nominations Monday for the Orange British Academy Film Awards, aka the BAFTAs. " (Cold Mountain 13, Lord of the Rings 12) The British have always been better than the Americans at recognizing comedy and fantasy movies (Ground Hog Day won best original screenplay at the BAFTAs). The British group also properly nominated Johnny Depp as best actor in Pirates of the Caribbean, a turn which was clearly the most memorable performance of the year, but has been passed over by many "serious" award groups. Strangely, they nominated Scarlett Johansson TWICE for best actress, snubbing Charlize Theron altogether.

An international cookbook compiled by California home economics teachers includes a recipe for "Stuffed Camel." Um-umm. It only takes 60 eggs and 26 pounds of rice to stuff a camel. Oh, and an entire lamb and 110 gallons of water. (Salt to taste - I prefer to add an amount of salt equal to the size of Lot's entire wife. But that's just family tradition.)
