Once upon a time, a bunch of Brits in LA decided to parody the Oscars nominees and run their own awards ceremony… Ladies and gentlemen, The Toscars were born !
The nominees of the 5th edition have been chosen on Jan 25th at Bar Lubitsch in West Hollywood, with Craig as the Master of Ceremony (more pics on the Anglo Files):

Craig is one of the team leaders for the parody of « Midnight in Paris ». God knows how Woody Allen’s work will look like in his hands !
Two team leaders – producer and director – will have random whactors to help them complete a short movie of five minutes in three weeks, with a deadline on Feb 20th. People will be able to vote for the Toscar, best whactor, best whactress, best supporting whactor and best supporting whactress.
