Video: Thank You to Bill Condon From All Twilight Fans

Those of you who follow us on Twitter were probably aware yesterday that Laura and several other Twilight site websmasters got the chance to meet Bill Condon, and to talk to him about Breaking Dawn part 2. We can’t quite talk about what we discussed yet, but it was almost a 40 minute Q&A.

At the end of the Q & A we had a surprise thank you for Bill Condon. By the time Breaking Dawn part 2 comes out, Bill Condon will have been involved with Twilight for over two years. That’s a lot of time and dedication. What’s really generous is just how much Bill has embraced all things Twilight, not looked down on the franchise or fans, and really taken it all seriously.

So even though we know know that Bill won’t get nominated for an OSCAR for this film, we didn’t was him to go unrewarded. SO, we cooked up a bit of a scheme to give him a trophy that we dubbed the first ever Lion and Lamb Award affectionately known as The Lambie.

There was a lamb on the top of the trophy and inscription and then the sites’ names underneath.

The inscription on the award reads

Line # 1: TO
Line # 2: BILL CONDON
Line # 3: FOR UNFLINCHING SUPPORT OF ALL THINGS TWILIGHT
Line # 4: WE PRESENT YOU WITH THE FIRST EVER
Line # 5: LION AND LAMB AWARD
Line # 6: THE FANSITES OF
Line # 7: TWIHARD NATION
Line # 8: JUNE 2012

The sites participating were

Bella and Edward.com
His Golden Eyes
Letters to Twilight
Team Twilight
Twilight Examiner
Twilight Guy
Twilight Facebook
Twilight Lexicon
Twilight Moms
Twilight Series Theories
Twilight Source

  1. AWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I’m crying TwiTears. I do have to say though that I am not sure of any movie franchise or director or directors assistant (TeamJack) that has answered so many questions and just making fans feel part of the experience. Thanks Bill!

  2. Fiona Cullen says:

    Aww, this is so sweet. I am forever in Bill Condon’s debt. He is my favourite director of out of all of the films, he has done so much for Twilight. The Lion and Lamb Award is such a sweet gesture. Hoping to hear more about the Q&A session soon!

  3. That was really a sweet and clever idea. Looking forward to hearing about the Q&A as we prepare for BD2.

  4. Elizabeth (EverythingRemindsMeOfTwilight) says:

    I am so glad to hear you did this. Though there never would have been a Bill Condon on BD1 and 2 without everyone coming first, he was very much the most “with it.” His consideration of the original material that was awesome in itself while incorporating so many aspects of the prior films while talking, supporting, and listening to the actors AND the fans was remarkable and fills me with gratitude. Thank you Laura, Lori, and all the other sites who recognized him for his outstanding work and showing him the deep appreciation that we all feel for the remarkable work he has done to make our lives more enjoyable.

  5. radiowidow says:

    Very cool! Thank you for doing that on behalf of all of us who appreciate all he’s done.

  6. That is awesome. I love like, you said, even though he’s on Oscar winning director & won’t get anything like that for the BD films, he takes it seriously and is so nice to the fandom. Even his partner Jack has been wonderful w/his Team Jack answering fan questions.

    I can’t wait until you guys can share more of what happened with the Q & A!

  7. Thanks, Bill Condon. <3

  8. That was very nice WebMasters, well done. We have been blessed to have all the directors we have for the films: Catherine Hardwick, Chris Weitz, David Slade, and of course, Bill Condon. They have all given their best, and then some, and embraced the Fandom, the Fans in it, the Actors, and Crews, the Production teams, and in every film, we have all collectively come together, to bring Bella, and her Edward to life. But, I do have to agree, with Bill…something magical happened, and having our Lady there to guide everything with her own hand, well…the pages of Stephanie’s book, were painted on the screen in part 1, and I am sure pt 2 will be no less supurb.

    I can’t say it enough…we are family. All of us, the Fans, Summit, Directors, Stephanie, Melissa, Kristin, Rob, Taylor, Kellan, Peter, Jackson, Elizabeth, Nikki, Ashley, Michael, Dakota…EVERYONE. This whole thing brought us all together more than anyone can ever hope to assume. It has been a hell of a ride =D

  9. THANK YOU BILL CONDON FOR MAKING THESE BEAUTIFUL BOOKS INTO GREAT MOVIES!!
