Once Upon A Time cast off set. Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Robert Carlyle, Josh Dallas, Eion Bailey, Jessy Schram and Lee Arenberg
Its been awhile since I did a Once Upon A Time blog...and I have a LOT of blog material to burn thru.
I will have some pics from the set for episodes 121 & 122 in the next couple weeks, but I thought I would start off with some pics of the cast out & about, away from the set.
They include some shots of Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan), Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold/ Rumplestiltskin), Josh Dallas (David Nolan/Prince Charming) & Ginnifer Goodwin (Mary Margaret Blanchard/Snow White) returning from various promotional events in L.A.
Theres some pics of Lee Arenberg (Leroy/Grumpy), Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin & Eion Bailey (August W. Booth?The Stranger) on the streets of Vancouver.
Even a couple bonus pics of Cinderella, Jessy Schram as she was coming into town to film another project she has a role on, Falling Skies.
As with all my sets, if you re-post my photos, do so with proper credits & DO NOT remove the tags, or they will be removed from your site & the site may penalize you however their rules state for such infractions. If you want photos untagged for your site, images are fr sale untagged... as are autographs of the stars.
The Best Actress in a Action/Drama of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Stana Katic - Castle.
A year & a bit ago I had never heard of Stana Katic. I had barely heard of "Castle", the show she co-stars on. But, after 2 years of seeing write in votes & nominations for the her in a variety of cateogires, my eyes are open to the show and its main stars now. I started watching the homicide centred drama this year & like many of you that voted, loved it too. Katic's performance as Det. Kate Beckett is certainly worthy of this praise.
Stana won handily, but earily on, she had resistence from a couple competitors, mainly from the eventual distant runnerup "Once Upon A Time" star Jennifer Morrison. Immediately behind her in 3rd was early on leader "Game Of Thrones" star Lena Headey. 4th & 5th were a pair of "Criminal Minds" actresses A.J. Cook & Paget Brewster. 6th was another "Once Upon A Time" actress Ginnifer Goodwin, back in 7th was the young "Game Of Thrones" star Maisie Williams, just narrowly beating out 8th place "Once Upon A Time" actress Lana Parrilla. 9th was "Burn Notice" actress Sharon Gless, and rounding out the finalists was "Revenge" star Emily VanCamp.
All three from the top 3 had at one point held the lead.
Final vote results
Stana Katic "Castle" 655

The Best New Program of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Once Upon A Time.
This fall ABC introducred families to a new spin on classic fairy tales. Once Upon A Time, the double world show based around the fairy tale world, and a small town in Maine called "Storybrooke" where all the classic fairy tale characters are trapped, with no recollection of who they are has generated lots of buzz amongst the public & TV critics. With a seemingly endless line of stories they can tell (each episode has recently centred on the story & backstory of 1 character or 1 specific fairy tale) the potential for "Once" to go strong for several years is certainly there. ABC cleverly picked a Sunday evening timeslot for the show, giving it a chance to be a ratings star as it appeals to families who are all together on a a weekend evening, and doesnt have to compete for TV viewers in mid-week when more adult aimed programming dominates the airwaves.
"Once Upon A Time" had a comfortable lead in this category from start to finish. The cable hit "Game Of Thrones" was threatening early on to pass Once, but never quite did, eventually settling on 2nd place. The CW supernatural teen drama "The Secret Circle" finished 3rd, ABC drama "Revenge" finished 4th, CBS action/drama "Person Of Interest" finished 5th, despite winning the People's Choice Award in the same category, 6th was AMC's "The Killing", right behind there was "Alphas" in 8th & FOX comedy "Breaking In" rounded out the finalists.
Final vote Results
Once Upon A Time 706
Game Of Thrones 545
The Secret Circle 314
Person Of Interest 197
The Killing 130
Breaking In 91
The Best "Supporting" Actor of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Mark Sheppard -Supernatural.
Our supporting actress & actor awards had a little different style to it than the mainstream supporting acting awards. Ours was based on appearances, not screen-time. This gave several characters who otherwise might get ignored for their roles, a chance to win for their work. The "King Of Hell" Crowley was around striking deals in 2011 & the actor portraying the sharp tongued demon, Mark Sheppard won this poll. It really is a credit to Mr. Sheppard's acting skills that he was up for 2 different acting awards, from 2 different shows.
Mark dominated the voting by the time it closed with over a 100 vote lead over another Supernatural troublemaker Sebastian Roche. Michael J. Fox from "The Good Wife" rounds out the top 3. Michael Cerveris "Fringe" finished 4th ahead of castmate Kevin Corrigan in 5th. Just 1 vote behind in 6th was "Once Upon A Time" star Lee Arenberg, Will Wheaton of "Eureka" was 7th, "Best guest star" winner Michael Rosenbaum was 8th for his work in "Breaking In", Ben Cotton "Hellcats" 9th narrowly ahead of Patrick Gilmore "The Killing" rounding out the finalists in 10th
This category might have had the most different finalists who had at 1 point had the lead. Besides the eventual winner, Michael J. Fox, Lee Arenberg, Michael Cerveris & Wil Wheaton all had temporary leads in this category early on.
Final vote results
Mark Sheppard "Supernatural" 715
Sebastian Roche "Supernatural" 576
Michael J. Fox "The Good Wife" 346
Michael Cerveris "Fringe" 275
Kevin Corrigan "Fringe" 239
Lee Arenberg "Once Upon A Time" 238
Wil Wheaton "Eureka" 214
Michael Rosenbaum "Breaking In" 157
Ben Cotton "Hellcats" 114
Patrick Gilmore "The Killing" 111
Once Upon A Time photos of Ginnifer Goodwin and Beverly Elliott doing scenes for episode 15 of season 1 in Steveston
Earlier this week I took the hour or so trip to the far end of Richmond by skytrain & bus to the small village of Steveston. Of course, as most fans of Once Upon A Time (Best New Show finalist in the Best Of TV Awards 2011 polls) know, Steveston is where much of downtown Storybrooke is set.
This week they were filming scenes for episode 15, which from what I have been told is supposed to centre around the character of Little Red Riding Hood/Ruby (played by actress Meghan Ory). So I headed out there, as Meghan was 1 of the few cast members on the show I have yet to get autographs from.
When I got out there I found Mary Margaret Blanchard (played by Best Actress In an Action/drama finalist in our Best Of TV Awards 2011 polls, Ginnifer Goodwin) & Granny (played by Beverly Elliott) doing a scene right on the corner I was heading down. No sign of Ms. Ory at that time, but I took some shots of the scene between Goodwin & Elliott. After their scene wrapped, myself & another local hound went across the street to get autographs. he went for Ginny, while I went for someone I had not gotten before... Beverly Elliott. She was quite amazed I had a photo of her, asked where I got it. I asked if she had seen it before & she said "yes, but not blown up into a photo", she signed it & thanked me for being there.
Later on I in the evening found Ginnifer back at the set. She walked over to an ice cream shop that I had earlier wondered if it was being used for a scene or just a product of clever advertising. It had in its window a riddle promoting "Red Riding Hood Ice Cream". I saw Ginny, Jared Gilmore & several of his school class mate cast members in there enjoying ice cream on what was a very cold day already. At first, I assumed they were shooting scenes in there...but later came to realize, nope, it was just an ice cream stop during a breaking in shooting.
At that point Jared was told he was wrapped for the day, while Ginny hurried back to the set where she still had a scene to do with Jennifer Morrison & Josh Dallas, where she would be inside & out of sight.
I never actually ran into Meghan Ory the day I was there. She wrapped her day scenes shortly before I got there...and was there fir night scenes shortly after I left. Had the weather not been so bitterly cold, I might have braved it for a bit longer that day. But at least I didnt go away shut out, as I got a few pics from scenes, and an autograph from a cast member I had yet to meet.
Below is a few pics from the day & a couple of different props & set locations, including the Dr. Hoppers office door & Ruby's car.... which appears to be just fine after the fender bender it was in earlier in the season.
The 2011 Toronto International Film Festival starts this week - here is MY top 30 want list for TIFF 11.
The 36th annual Toronto International Film Festival begins later this week, and we will again be there.
Last year, I gave you a list of 20 people I wanted to get. http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/1/post/2010/09/my-top-20-wants-at-tiff-2010.html I managed to see 15 of them, only managed to nab 8 of those 20 though for autographs, but I did get my #1, so that was a victory.
This year, I have pushed the list to 30. So here it is....my top 30 want list for TIFF 2011.
1 Chloe Moretz - Didnt get Hit Girl last year at film fest when she cancelled for a family birthday party. This year, shes committed to coming. Must get.
2 Hugh Laurie - Last year it was Dexter. This year its Dr. House. My must get TV person.
3 Antonio Banderas - Puss In Boots. If he wasnt PIB, I wouldnt even care he was there.
4 Madonna - Really? Are you even remotely shocked? Its Madonna. Theres few names in the entertainment universe as big as this.
5 Saoirse Ronan - She was terrific in Hanna. An Academy Award nominee at just 13 for Atonement. Must get IMO.
6 Maggie Gyllenhaal - Loved Secreatary, loved The Dark Knight.
7 Brad Pitt - Normally, a guy dumb enough to leave Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie I would assume has bad decision making skills...but he seems to make blockbuster movies despite this severe retardation.
8 Michelle Williams - Huge Dawsons Creek fan. Actually got her autograph way back when she was still on DC, but was working for someone else at the time & despite asking for 1, never got 1. Chance to rememdy that now.
9 Jeffrey Dean Morgan - Huge Supernatural fan, always looking to add new things to my collection.
10 Jason Statham - Its JasoN Statham, nuff said.
11 Neil Young - Hes ahead of U2 and Pearl Jam simply because I've somehow never got him before.
12 Elena Anaya - Never knew who she was till I found some hot pics of her from a movie she did.
13 U2 - If you havent heard of them, its ok. They might be big someday.
14 George Clooney - In 2007 I literally missed getting him by less than 3 ft. Chance for redemption.
15 Julia Maxwell - Key figure in season 6 of Supernatural was Eve. Played by this hot specimen.
16 Kyle MacLachlan - The Captain on How I Met Your Mother. Nuff said.
17 Keira Knightley - Hopefully redemption for not getting her in 2007.
18 Gerard Butler - Its Gerard Butler. Nuff said.
19 Alison Pill - She was the only character in Milk I liked.
20 Gael Garcia Bernal - In 2007 I was naive enough to think "ah I'll just walk right up and get this guy. No one cares about him". Now I am sart enough from my prior experience to know "I NEED to get him".
21 Nicholas Cage - Got his autograph before when he filmed Ghost Rider, but it was on a Colorado Avalance team card because I wasnt expecting him. Never seen him since. Chance to finally get the photos I printed back then done.
22 Jennifer Lawrence - Even though I know nothing about The Hunger Games, I also am smart enough to know from my Twilight experiences, dont poo-poo these book driven series.
23 Pearl Jam - Despite having got them more times than I can recall, I will always want more.
24 Viggo Mortensen - Funny enough, I got him in 2007 and didnt really know who he was then, since then I've seen him in Eastern Promises and A History Of Voilence, so now I WANT to get him.
25 Ewan McGregor - Star Wars. Nuff Said. Got him in 2007.
26 Jennifer Garner - should have got her 4 yrs ago at my 1st film fest, but some deaf hounds ruined it for everyone when they disregarded her demand to not push. Fingers crossed I get to her this time before they ruin it again.
27 Lily Cole - Dont know anything about her except she looks hot, and isnt opposed to being naked.
28 Sarah Silverman - She was 14th on my list last year, and I got her. Thus why shes not too high up this year, but still someone I hope to get again.
29 Liana Liberato - Had photos for her last year, but missed out. Second crack, maybe this time I'll get her.
30 Robin Wright - I am really assuming she will be much nicer than her ex, Sean Penn.
Others I would be happy to find.... Selma Blair, Willem Dafoe, Kirsten Dunst, Ryan Gosling, Leighton Meester, Chris Pratt, Scott Speedman, Rachel Weisz & Anton Yelchin.
Hoping they show up - Ralph Fiennes, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Jackman, Ashley Greene, Eric Peterson, Alicia Silverstone, Nicole Kidman, Ed Helms, Jason Segal, Bryan Cranston
Below is a few pics from various outings where I saw the cast of the ABC rookie TV show "Once Upon A Time" which will premiere October 23, 2011.

I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
