BREAKING NEWS–Johnny Depp presents BAFTA/LA award to director Mike Newell

An opportunity to honor his DONNIE BRASCO director coaxed Johnny Depp into a tux and onto the podium at the BAFTA/LA awards ceremony on Thursday, November 10th in Hollywood. Joined by Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett, Johnny presented Mike Newell with the John Schlesinger Brittania Award for Excellence in Directing. Deppheads recall Newell’s beautifully nuanced direction of 1997’s DONNIE BRASCO, which drew haunting, powerful performances from Johnny and Al Pacino. Newell’s latest film is HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, opening on November 18th.
