Well, this came out of the blue!
A program I’ve directed has been nominated for the Image and Sound Award, under the category Entertainment. The program in question is Waar Is De Mol? and I can best descibe it as a cross between a real-life road movie and a celebrity interview show. The winners will be announced on January 26th next year. Fingers crossed…
From the press release:
Wednesday December 3rd the nominations were announced for the Image and Sound Awards 2008.
