Chris and Zoe Host Oscar Tech SciTech Awards
On Saturday Chris Pine and
Zoe Saldana hosted the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences Technical Awards dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The annual event is to honor achievements which "demonstrate a proven record of contributing significant value to the process of making motion pictures. Honorees are those who have invented such things as "Wavelet Turbulence Software" and the "CINE VCLX Portable Power System."
While quite technical, Saldana told the crowd (according to the AP)
"We’re truly humbled…We can fly into space because of you." Saldana told honorees at the event Saturday night. Honoree Steve LaVietes of Sony Pictures Imageworks (for the Katana scene management software) noted at one point that he often had to "dispel the misconceptions of friends and family members about our glamorous lifestyle. Mostly because we sit in the dark typing and drawing diagrams on whiteboards…Just for tonight we can let that slide because what’s more glamorous than the crew of the Starship Enterprise?"
And (according to DigitalLA) crowd was also treated to a special exclusive clip from Star Trek Into Darkness, courtesy of director J.J. Abrams. Unfortunately no imagery of video of this clip has been made public.
