    Jeff Bridges' True Grit Pix

    http://jeffbridges.com/true_grit_boo..._01.cover.html

    I'm not up on who is nominated for an Oscar, but i think Jeff Bridges is for his role in True Grit, which I thought was a great flick. As many of you know, he's an avid photographer, and I came across the above link via the Online Photographer to Bridges' Widelux pix he shot during the making of the movie. There are some gems in there, to be sure.

    And think he should win the Oscar for the pix alone!!

    I thought True Grit seemed rather lightweight; the relatively short duration of the film didn't allow one to fully immerse in the narrative, which also meant certain sections of the film seemed rather artificially curtailed.

    I saw John Wayne's True Grit years ago like everybody else, but didn't know that Jeff Bridges was a photographer. Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks, great fun. Actor/musician photographers have left some wonderful casual backstage/set collections--Yul Brynner and Milt Hinton are two that come to mind. Welcome relief from the Twitter-fueled celebrity worship circus.

    Very good images. But I guess if I have to pull for a film or actor at the Oscars it would have to be "The King's Speech" and Colin Firth or Christian Bale in "The Fighter".

    Hard choice this year... Toss up between the King's Speech and True Grit. Both fine movies.

    As for actor/musician/celebrity photographers, you should add Graham Nash and Sammy Davis Jr. to the list. I don't know if we should include Colm Feore or the other celebrity Littman owners, but I would add Russian President President Dimitri Medvedev and um... Leni Riefenstahl. (and then stand back and watch the sparks fly)

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Yeah... I think the safe money is on these guys, (though I haven't seen either of their movies) but the dude is clearly a talent behind the camera, too!! That's why he gets my (non) vote!!

    Thanks for sharing the link, Suzanne. Those are some wonderful photographs. I also noticed the great light in most of the images, any idea when the movie was shot? IMDB lists the locations in Texas and New Mexico.

    BTW, Brendan Fraser is also a good photographer.

    I recognized Camel Rock, next to the highway just north of Santa Fe. I used to live in colorado where they filmed the first True Grit. I'm not sure I want to see the remake, hard to do better than The Duke.
