Article #1
Rob had a front-row table at the award ceremony, where he dined on kohlrabi and beet salad by his rep's side and laughed along with the rest of the crowd — who included Isla Fisher, Hawaii Five-O's Alex O'Loughlin, and several prominent Australian filmmakers — during the raucous festivities. Tonight was the second public appearance Rob has made this week; on Tuesday, he attended a screening of his friend Nicholas Jarecki's latest directorial project, Seduced and Abandoned.

Isla Fisher presented Baz Luhrman with one of two Orry Kelly International awards tonight. The Great Gatsby director couldn't be there to accept in person, so she announced that she'd take home his boomerang statuette, teasing: "My first award!" Isla also couldn't resist comparing the title of the honor to the R&B singer with a very similar name: R. Kelly. When Rob presented the second of the statuettes to Blue Tongue shortly after Isla, he said he was chagrined she'd already made the first R. Kelly-related crack. Then, he jokingly referred to the honor as "the golden shower award," earning the evening's biggest roar of laughter from the crowd. In typical self-deprecating form, Rob also wondered out loud if he should ditch his "insanely" generic written speech, but ultimately decided against it after the crowd urged him to keep reading.

Article #2
While presenting an award at the Australian's in Film Awards in LA today, Robert Pattinson dropped a bit of a bomb… it's hard for him to make friends! Aww bless him.

"It's always easier to make friends and be happier when you're unemployed and unsuccessful like I was in London when I first started," he said. "LA is extremely cut throat."

But don't worry guys, our reporter on the scene spotted the Twilight star and he looked as cheery as ever... enjoying several glasses of vino before he got up on stage.

Article #3
Robert Pattinson presented a Fox Studios Australia Orry-Kelly International Award (or “the R Kelly golden shower award,” as he called it) to Blue-Tongue Films — a production collective of eight filmmakers.

“You look at the film industry now, everyone’s so cut-throat, especially in L.A.,” Pattinson said. “Seeing how the Blue Tongue group came together, they all seem to support each other and they’re also critics that share high quality work without their egos getting involved.”

Mirrah Foulkes, the group’s newest and only female member, was “bullied” into accepting the award on behalf of the group. “It’s a loose collaboration and sometimes we don’t see each other for really long periods of time,” Foulkes said. “We’re all really different filmmakers and sometime we fight. But always there’s a lot of love and safety within this group. I feel like making films can sometimes feel like a crazy, weird ambition. It’s lonely. And just to know you’re surrounded by people that make you feel secure, people that support you. More than anything else, filmmaking is collaborative.”

Wow Rob looks damn hot and beautiful. Love the suit.

The suit is not as dynamic as his Cosmopolis Premiere Gucci suit in NYC suit, but it is nice. He looks like he is having a good time at the dinner table. Thanks RPL for supplying the pics.

Was he with any

Just that short speech of him talking, he sounds so much more confident than in previous presentations. I am absolutely giddy with excitement to hear the whole speech, Rob, you the man.

Looking as handsome as ever. Hello to everyone!

Joan said...

@Iluvthemovies That was my impression, too. I remember his past Uma Thurman presentation and this infinitely superior to that one.
