UPDATE: Liam Hemsworth Wins a Total Film 2012 Hotlist Award
You may remember a couple of months back that The Hunger Games was nominated in 5 categories at the Total Film Hotlist Awards 2012 (hot as in what’s heating up Hollywood as opposed to attractiveness!). Unfortunately our fav movie of the year was beaten in a number of categories by Joss Whedon’s Avengers, Hottest Book went to The Hobbit and Hottest Actress went to Kristen Stewart. But Gale himself, Liam Hemsworth, picked up the award for Hottest Newcomer (Male) and had this to say in the UK magazine:
“A huge thank you to all the people out there who voted for me. I feel very fortunate to receive this award. I’ll keep it under my pillow!”
All the winners are listed here and you can pick up a copy of Total Film on UK news stands to see the special editorial of the winners and their comments.
Update: Liam also spoke in a short interview with Total Film about Gale and Catching Fire:
Why do you think Gale made such an impression on audiences?
“Gale is a good person trying to find a way to stop bad people. And for the most part he has other people’s wellbeing before his own which I think makes him likeable.”
What scenes/moments are you looking forward to filming in Catching Fire? What can fans expect of Gale?
“I think just watching the different relationships become more complex will be great to see. I’m really looking forward to the part of the stories where Gale gets to fight back.”
