Best Actor went to Michael Fassbender for the upcoming SHAME, with supporting actor nods going to Michael Smiley for KILL LIST and Vanessa Redgrave for COROLIANUS.

Paul has been writing for film websites for over ten years. The Hollywood News was born out of love for film and his frustration at not being a very good filmmaker himself. Those who cannot do, write about – or so they say. Aside from the site, Paul has directed a music video (badly), has one credit to his name on the IMDb, enjoys running, driving (now that he has finally passed his test at the age of 33), and of course going to the movies.
