Indie Wire blogged about the final scene of “Captain Phillips” and how Tom Hanks should have earned an Oscar nomination for that, and I fully agree. I usually don’t get too emotional in public but when I saw this scene I couldn’t help myself. Tom’s insightful performance literally took my breath away. Watch the final scene below. Even though Tom isn’t nominated himself, “Captain Phillips” made it in 6 other categories. Don’t forget to watch the Oscars on March 2nd on ABC. Read Indie Wire’s article here.
According to n-tv.de Tom will visit Potsdam, Germany next month, to shoot his new film “A Hologram for the King“, written by Dave Egger and directed by Tom Tykwer. Sounds exciting!
Now I would like to take the chance and thank you all for welcoming this page. I am glad that tom-hanks.net is finally online! Secondly, I want to apologize for the welcome message I put up first. A fan confronted me with the way I wrote it and criticized that I called myself “the #1 source“, which she thinks is rude towards other established sites dedicated to Tom – and I fully understand. I want you to know, that I don’t think this site is better than any other site, I don’t even have proper content! I wasn’t aware that this inconsiderate remark might insult anyone and I didn’t want to disrespect or offend anyone. I am truly sorry, I should have known better, but now I do.
