Congratulations to Peter Jackson and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!
Kiwi film-goers have voted The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey best picture and Peter Jackson best director in the Flicks.co.nz People’s Choice awards. The film has made nearly $1 billion in box office takings worldwide.
80,000 votes were cast by some 6,000 people to decide the winners in the 16 categories, which include Looper for best sci fi/fantasy and Skyfall for best action movie. The New Zealand Herald has a full list of winners. I can’t help admiring the Kiwis for that last category!
