Brendan Fraser took home a top award at the first ever International 3D Society’s Lumiere Awards Tuesday night at Hollywood’s Mann Chinese Theater.
Not only did Brendan star in Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3D, he also executive produced it, that’s why he was given the “3D Talent Award.”
Unlike most A-list stars who breeze in and out of awards shows just long enough to pick up a trophy, Brendan stayed for the after party until late Tuesday night.
Avatar took home the most trophies, made by the same company that manufactures the Oscar.
Avatar Co-Star Giovanni Ribisi made the packed crowd of 300 laugh when he accepted several of the awards for filmmaker James Cameron and producer Jon Landau. He candidly said, “I just got a call today and said, go and accept this award.” Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, who is a champion of 3D films, was honored with the Vision Award.
Here’s the lineup of awards:
The awards show was put on by the International 3D Society that is headed up by Jim Chabin, former Emmy Awards President.
