Naomi Watts was among a host of Australian entertainers who joined this year’s 16 Tropfest finalists on the red carpet at Sydney’s Domain. In its 16th year, Tropfest is promoted as the world’s largest short film festival, with finalists selected from a field of 600 entries from around the globe. “It is probably a little early to say, but this is probably one of the biggest if not the biggest (Tropfests) we’ve had,” Tropfest creative director John Polson said on the red carpet.
HOLLYWOOD star Naomi Watts last night paid a tearful tribute to her former lover Heath Ledger in her first public appearance since his death last month. Watts was emotional during a special tribute to Ledger at Tropfest in The Domain. Watts put on a brave face to play judge and presenter at the annual festival but lost her composure when the video tribute to Ledger was aired.
I’ve updated various pages in the ‘Naomi’ and ‘Interact’ sections today – in the Naomi section I’ve updated the Awards & Nominations, Name Analysis and Style Rundown pages, and added a bunch of quotes from The Painted Veil and Eastern Promises; in the Interact section I’ve added to the ABC, Caption This, Favourite Outfit and 101 Reasons pages. Look out for more Polls and Games soon…
I also updated our affiliates and the sidebar last night.
Actress Naomi Watts will be the celebrity judge at the Tropfest short film festival this year. The actress, who is turning 40 this year, will be accompanying five other judges in the panel, when the 16 finalists will be screened at The Domain next Sunday. The panel will also include last year’s winner Steve Baker and Tropfest founder John Polson.
Naomi Watts has revealed that she was furious when female paparazzi tried to take pictures of her while she was pregnant. The actress needed police protection last August when she was ambushed by photographers at a grocery store in LA. She said she is usually able to take media intrusion in her stride but could not hide her anger when she was hounded by women.
Well it seems people didn’t see my message yesterday about not re-posting my Esquire scans – I’ve seen today that one site has removed my tags and reposted the scans there, and they even have the nerve to claim them as exclusive and having them first. This really disappoints me not only because I spent time scanning these pictures exclusively for this site, but because I didn’t think the Naomi Watts web community was like this. It is wrong and unfair to repost pictures, especially in the case of exclusive scans like this. I can only hope that the offending site will remove my scans, and this will not happen again, because I don’t want to have to worry about what I post or take extra measures to safeguard my content.
Naomi is on the cover of the new issue of Esquire (UK) – inside are a new photoshoot and interview! Scans will be added asap. Thanks to Tom, Lorna and Al for the heads-up
Naomi is on the cover of the March 2008 issue of US Glamour magazine! Below is a tiny preview, and I’ve uploaded 3 pictures from the new photoshoot into the Gallery – I can’t wait to see the full set, she looks absolutely gorgeous! We’ll have scans for you as soon as possible (or if you’d like to contribute them then don’t hesitate to contact me ).
thanks to ‘kochie332′ for the heads-up
