There was no glitz and glamour this evening for the Golden Globes as the traditional event was cancelled due to the on going writers strike, but even more upsetting Michael C. Hall did not win Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series: Drama. Instead Jon Hamm won for his performance in Mad Men. :almostcry:
To view the full list of winners visit the official Golden Globes website.
It’s upsetting to see Michael go unrewarded for his truly amazing performances in every single episode, but I guess we can take comfort in the success of Dexter and those who do appreciate such a fine character and story. Hopefully there will be many more great seasons to come for us fans too. But as always, In our eyes Michael is still the true winner!
The entire creative ensemble of Dexter was awarded an award of a year in excellency at the 2008 AFI Awards Luncheon. The event was held yesterday in Los Angeles and Michael was there to accept on behalf of the show. Huge congrats on the well deserved accolade. :) I have added the first few pictures, hopefully we will have more later on today. Here is what the American Film Institute had to say about Dexter (I for one totally agree!):
Dexter places its hands firmly on the throat of expectation and – minute by minute – tightens its grip until audiences begin to question their idea of morality. Michael C. Hall’s masterfully nuanced performance as Dexter breathes humanity into a monster – a killer who murders those he believes have gotten away with murder. The world through Dexter’s dark, droll and wickedly funny gaze, in many ways, defines today’s era of television – stories that are wildly ambitious, intricately told, and deeply, emotionally engaging.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assocation today announced that Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards press conference is now open to all media outlets.
After discussions with NBC, Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Jorge Camara today announced that the HFPA will have complete control of its 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards Announcement that is scheduled to take place Sunday, January 13 at 6:00 p.m. PST in the International Ballroom of The Beverly Hilton. Under the new arrangement, there will be no restrictions placed on media outlets covering the press conference.
Which basically means that you’ll be able to watch the announcement on presumably numerous networks and news programs. Michael C. Hall is yet again nominated for is work in Dexter.
CHUD is reporting that Liev Schreiber is playing Victor Creed (aka Sabretooth) in the Gavin Hood-directed X-Men Origins: Wolverine and not a young Stryker as was previously believed.
The site adds that Michael C. Hall is instead in talks for the role of Stryker and that they are eyeing Michelle Monaghan for Silverfox.
Leading up to the events of X-Men,” Wolverine tells the story of Wolverine’s epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.
The movie opens in theaters on May 1, 2009.
Here’s the Michael related mention from CHUD:
So who is playing Stryker? Nobody is set yet, but the producers are darkly dreaming Dexter, if you get what I mean. Meanwhile the rest of the cast is still in formation, which means that the producers are hunting folks down – one of the names that’s on the top of their list is Michelle Monaghan for Silver Fox. I’ve heard a lot of names attached to this one over the weeks – and reported some of them – and I know that there’s another high powered actress that’s on the list as well, so nothing is set in stone. But as I always say, the casting wish lists tell you a lot about what the filmmakers are striving for, and a Wolverine movie featuring Michael C Hall, Liev Schreiber and Michelle Monaghan is a damn well cast Wolverine movie.
We are always looking for Michael related fan art, be it a wallpaper or an icon, so if you’re an art savvy fan, please do not hesitate to send in your work for others to see!
Thanks to Maria of our sister site JenniferCarpenter.org, we came across some previously unseen candid pictures of Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter‘s Debra) gabbing a coffee whilst reading the Sunday papers in West Hollywood, California back. These were taken back in November 2007. According to gossip reports, the two have been romantically involved for quite some time. Watch with Kristin reports that the couple spent Christmas Eve in Louisville, Kentucky, together to hang with Jennifer’s family. I personally think Michael and Jennifer make a cute couple and wish them nothing but the best! :happy:

Welcome to the grand opening of Michael C. Hall Online, a website dedicated to Michael C. Hall, the accomplished and unique actor best known for his roles in Dexter, Six Feet Under and various stage shows.
A little bit of trivia regarding the site. I, Riikka, along with Sana and Stef, originally launched a Dexter/Michael C. Hall fansite at www.dexter-morgan.com in 2006. However, the site was closed after a short tint as we realised that running a site dedicated to a whole show was a task too time consuming. Instead, Mycah and I decided to build a site focused exclusively on Michael himself – and this is what you see here today! MCH has been our favorite actor since his amazing five year run as David in Six Feet Under and our fandom has only been strenghtened by his amazing work as Dexter Morgan on the Showtime series.
Please keep in mind that we do not consider this site to be complete. Most notably, the video section, Six Feet Under and Dexter‘s first season captures are still waiting to be added. We are striving to have the site complete within a few month’s time. At least this will keep us busy during the more quiet period before the news and filming of Dexter’s third season begins.
Without further ados, we hope you enjoy this wee web tribute that we’ve made for the brilliant Michael C. Hall. :stupidsmile: Be sure to check back with us often for the latest on MCH and his work!
Los Angeles Times published a brand new interview with Michael a few days back. In it he talks about the Dexter finale, award shows and things to come. It is a good read! Please keep in mind that the article is very spoiler-y for those who have not seen the second series of Dexter! Read the interview here in the press archives.
In case you did not know, the official Dexter site also hosts a very interesting finale event video, which contains an interview with Michael and the show’s creators regarding the season finale.
By the way, we always add Dexter coverage as it airs so that the site is up-to-date. Unfortunately this means that some areas of the site, mainly the Dexter category in the gallery, may contain spoilers to non-US fans. I just wanted to be sure to let the visitors know of our policy. Please look at the gallery with caution if you do not want to know what happens in the show. Thanks.
