Texas Film Awards Honor PTA & Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer and Paul Thomas Anderson were both honored at last night's Texas Film Awards, held by the Austin Film Society in Austin, TX. The awards are an unofficial kickoff for the annual SXSW festival, which begins today.

At the press conference for the awards, honorees PTA and Hammer talked about the role of Texas in their respective careers. PTA shot There Will Be Blood in Marfa, TX, while Hammer spent part of his childhood there and currently co-owns of a couple of bakeries in San Antonio and Dallas with his wife.

Richard Linklater interviewed Paul Thomas Anderson, who received the first ever Jonathan Demme award and has long listed Demme as one of his greatest influences.

It's nice to see PTA get an award after going home empty-handed all season. For the hungry boy!
