Photos: Bill Condon Receiving His Lion and Lamb Trophy

Yesterday we shared with you the story on how we gave Bill Condon a trophy called the Lion and Lamb Award (AKA The Lambie) for all his dedication to the Twilight fandom. Today we have photos from Twilightish, Team Twilight, and Jack Morrissey(the photo seen left) who were all able to take pictures while we did the video recording.

I realize that I left out one crucial detail yesterday when I described how it all went down. We gave him the trophy and there was a card to go with it. He opened the card first. It was a Breaking Dawn card that Elena from Twilightish (who has awesome scrapbook skills)managed to modify because it was originally a birthday card. She recovered the inside so it was blank. Then, all of us signed the card representing our sites and the fans who visit them.

So Bill goes to open the card and surprise it’s a musical card! It starts playing Christina Perri’s 1000 Years. He started laughing and so did his editors who you see in the background of the photos. Then after that, he dove in to the wrapping paper and pulled out the trophy.

Bill really really loved it. They are putting it up in the office where they are currently editing the movie. Everyone there got a kick out of it.

Via Twilightish here’s a shot of Bill posing with the award (more shots on Twilightish)

In case you missed the full story. We posted it yesterday. Below is the video we shot as it was going on.


  1. A wonderful idea for a wonderful man!

  2. This is the best fandom ever!! I’m so proud to be a part of everything Twilight! Y’all ROCK!!!

  3. Aww, love that! He’s awesome, so deserves that for what he’s done for this Saga. We should do the same for the rest as well, they’ve been awesome too! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 xxx

    I agree with Nicole. Bill has been absolutely fantastic, but we’ve had some other great directors who have embraced the fandom as well. And there’s a really special place in my heart for Chris Weitz – not only because he’s such a fantastic “tweet”-er, but also because he designed the wolves, the Volturi, Jacob’s house, the cliff, Volterra and much more, so masterfully and very faithfully. I wish we could give them all awards of some kind!!!

      I agree! Condon is not the only director that deserves a trophy. Weitz and Hardwicke do as well. Without Hardwicke, we would not have this amazing cast that she helped put together. We also would not have the amazing audition stories about Rob and Kristen!

      • I feel like though Hardwick did put them together and is a great person and all, she didn’t do Twilight as well as the other directors did their movies. It was changed so much and I can’t get over the fact that the media scene was, well, horrible. If anyone else should get a Lambie it should be Stephenie Meyer. If every director gets a Lambie it isn’t as special. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • True that! SO grateful to Catherine H. for having the foresight to choose this awesome cast of actors. Chris Weitz & David Slade were awesome with New Moon & Eclipse respectively, as well Bill Condon on Breaking Dawn. I’m so appreciative to have this extremely talented group of directors bring our beloved saga to life on the big screen.

    Wow, this is really, really awesome! Thanks to all of the fansites involved for being our voice hahaha!! We love you, Bill =)!

  6. the only other Director who deserves an award/ trophy is Catherine Hardwick !

  7. aww this is really awesome guys! ๐Ÿ™‚ Mr.Condon really deserve this trophy because all his effort to give all the best for our saga ๐Ÿ™‚

    but guys, I think all directors of the twilight saga (Catherine, Chris, and David) also really deserve this trophy! Why don’t you guys give this trophy to them as well? ๐Ÿ™‚
