Sky-high drama series Pan Am and Ricky Gervais’ new comedy Life’s Too Short are among the nominees for the upcoming international Rose d’Or TV awards in Switzerland.
Pan Am, starring Christina Ricci, received a nod in the Best Series category, while Life’s Too Short will compete for the Best Sitcom trophy at the prizegiving, which celebrates the best in global television.
Another high profile competitor is Page Eight – starring Bill Nighy, Rachel Weisz and Sir Michael Gambon – which leads the Best TV Movie category, while other nominations come from countries including Belgium, Israel, Canada, Norway and South Korea.
The Rose d’Or Festival takes place from 6-10 May in Lucerne, Switzerland.
Last week, Christina Ricci was in Germany for the Berlinale International Film Festival which premiered her new film “Bel Ami”. I have just finished adding 1,006 HQ and MQ images of Christina from the film’s photocall, press conference, premiere and after party into our photo gallery!
Christina Ricci would “enjoy” being a trophy wife.
The actress has imagined an alternative life in which she wasn’t a Hollywood star but a rich socialite instead.
The 30-year-old was perhaps inspired by her role in new movie Bel Ami, in which she portrays a well-to-do wife and mother in the Parisian Belle Époque era.
“If I met an insanely wealthy man, I would be a trophy wife right now. [I’d live in] a gorgeous apartment [in SoHo, New York]. Maybe I’d take pictures or be a socialite, throw parties. I could be a party planner. I’d enjoy that,” she told Total Film magazine.
Christina also has loved the original Bel Ami novel since she was in her early teenage years.
The former child star said that instead of seeking out the movie adaptation’s directors to ask to be considered for a role, the script just turned up without any meddling on her part.
“I’ve loved the book since I was around 13 or 14. [I was] super-excited [when I heard a film was being made],” she said. “[The script just arrived] which is kind of amazing since I loved the book so much.”
I have just added 278 high definition screen captures of Christina Ricci from last night’s season finale (and possible series finale) of “Pan Am” into our photo gallery!
Have U Heard recently had the opportunity to tour the set of Pan Am and interview Michael Mosley (“Ted”), Margot Robbie (“Laura”) and Christina Ricci (“Maggie”).
With the season finale set for Sunday, February 19th, I wanted to share a behind the scenes look at both the set and the actors.
The set is every bit as amazing as it looks on television. A majority of the filming takes place on a 707 plane that sits in a hangar with a green screen used to create the view of the sky and the location of the week. The wardrobe department along with the costumes and accessories from the 60′s was equally amazing.
After seeing the set the interviews took place. I was in awe at being able to meet and speak with Christina Ricci. Christina has always been known for her movies so one of the first questions asked of her was why television?
Christina: I have been looking to get into TV for a long time, actually. I have been doing this for a really long time and lots of traveling and different films. I have been looking for a more stable lifestyle, a regular lifestyle. A regular job. I thought TV was a great way to facilitate that and I also started seeing how the better writing was on TV. Better talent is on TV these days. So, I started looking. I always enjoyed guest starring on TV. I loved the work and how work was approached. So, I was looking for a while and I this just came up as an opportunity.
Other questions that were asked of Christina:
Question: What traits do you like about your character?
CR: I like that she is sort of like the ‘wild card.’ I like that she had to work her way to the top – that she doesn’t come from money or a traditional background. I like that she had to create herself from what she perceived to be nothing and I like the fact that she sees herself as inferior. She takes risks. A lot of people can relate to it. Those are the things that get us in trouble in life and destructive behaviors, but it makes her very human.
Question: How have you liked hanging out in NYC the past couple of months?
CR: Oh, I been having a great time. I have been living in Brooklyn and really enjoying it. It reminds of the Lower East Side – where I lived as a teenager. Then I moved away. I have been away for 10, 11 years. When I came back it’s so different…at least Manhattan is. Brooklyn reminds me of the way Manhattan was when I was a teenager. I love living in Brooklyn.
Question: Do you like the trains?
CR: I’m not very close to a train stop, but I will be moving for this play so I will be close to a train soon.
Question: What play?
CR: I’m doing Midsummer’s Night Dream in CSC in March, so, yea, I will be taking the train on a regular basis. Look for me on the L.
