Tintin by Steven Spielberg
The Adventures of Tintin won the Golden Globe award for Best Animated Feature Film.
You know who didn’t get thanked in Steven Spielberg’s acceptance speech for Tintin at the award ceremony Sunday night? The guy who created Tintin: Herge.
Spielberg did say that Hollywood gave him (and Peter Jackson) a chance to turn this “80 year old series of wonderful books into a motion picture.”
It’s hard to be too critical. He had less than a minute to thank people and it probably is prudent politically, socially and financially to thank the people who actually greenlight movies first.
But it would’ve been nice of him to slip in a little Herge mention with all the bankers and executives.
