Bits and Pieces

by Linzy 23rd Mar 2010 | 14 comments

As the post titles suggests, these are a few snippets of news that don’t really justify a whole news post to themselves.

1. Tim has won two Green Room awards in cabaret for the best artiste and best original songs. Unfortunately he wasn’t even nominated for best male dancer. The full list of nominations and recipients can be found here.

2. Tim has also won a Chortle award for best music or variety act. Looks like he’s going to need a bigger mantelpiece for all these trophies. The rest of the winners can be seen here.

3. Speaking of awards, a portrait of Tim, done by the artist, Sam Leach, is a finalist for the Archibald Prize, which is regarded as one of the most prestigious Australian art awards. The painting, along with the other finalists can be seen here.

4. ‘So F**king Rock Live’ is being repeated on e4, in the UK, yet again, on Saturday at 11pm. Not that we’re saying you should watch it because it’s already been on three times, and you’ve probably got the DVD too, but just so you know.
