The National Medal of Arts is the highest award a writer can get. Stephen King has won many awards but his movies have given him a large margin of awards. King has had many movie nominations.

The fact that he went to trial three times over a hung jury is an incredible and rare circumstance especially since his case was the talk of the country.

If you don’t like superheroes (The most popular film genre), ideas taken from Star Wars and Indiana Jones (some of the most memorable and most profitable film series of all time), and Marvel (one of the most profitable companies in the world) then I’m going to have to tell you otherwise.

His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time. He was nominated many times before, but for some reason failed to win. Alas, he had to win something, or at least that’s what I think the Oscar people
This is a staple act for heroes because most people would put themselves before other, but that’s not the case for Keanu. For instance, he turned down a contract to perform the same role in a sequel of the movie Speed. He chose to rather participate in a theatre version of Hamlet. The contract for Speed was $11 million dollars, but he stayed true to himself and performed for 750 people instead. Keanu continued playing serious roles to help people realize he wasn’t the goofball people thought he was by playing the role of a lawyer in the film The Devil’s Advocate In the film, Reeve’s character is supposed to defend people that have obviously done wrong.

The film is already an international success, since it has sold out in 175 countries, beating out the previous sales record of Bong Joon-ho 's English-language sci-fi feature Snowpiercer, to become the best-selling Korean film of all time. The script is based on the novel "Fingersmith" by Sarah Waters and takes place in Korea of the 1930s, with the country under Japanese rule. Con man "Count" Fujiwara has managed to managed to insert himself into the very secluded circle of Kouzuki, an eccentric hedonist who has become the man in charge in charge of a very large estate, and plans to marry his niece, Lady Hideko, the actual heiress of the family 's vast fortune.
