The 74th edition of the awards hosted by Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globes, are taking place tonight Sunday, January 8th 2017 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. Eddie had been a nominee in the past two editions and despite not being nominated this year, he is one of the attendees as he will be one of the presenters during the ceremony.
The ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon and will be aired live on NBC from 5-8pm PT / 8-11pm ET or accordingly, 10pm to 1am UK time.
Today, January 6th, 2017 marks Eddie’s 35th Birthday.
We would like to wish him a wonderful day!
To honour Eddie on this very special day, we are part of the social media network of fans that are organising an initiative where people can donate to the Motor Neurone Disease Association instead of giving gifts and cards. Eddie has given the idea his blessing! This is a cause that is very dear to his heart, given the intensely personal research that he did in order to prepare for his role of Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything” that led him to become a Patron of the Association.
Here’s Eddie’s message:
“Preparing for the staggering responsibility of playing Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything” reminded me that our greatest gift in life is our health.
Although I inhabited a bit of their lives for only a brief time, the immense courage and unfathomable struggles of MND families who shared their experiences are something that will never leave me, and I am honored to be a Patron of the MND Association.
Another of my great gifts is my fans, and each year as my birthday approaches, their outpouring of greetings and presents touches my heart. This year, a team of those fans is working with the MND Association to funnel your generosity into the Association’s critical research and services. The best birthday gift you can offer me is to share in my involvement with the MND Association in whatever way you can, to help work toward a deeper understanding of — and ultimately a cure for — this brutal disease.
As always, your support is profoundly moving to me. May your New Year be fulfilling!
We would like to get as many of you as possible to participate in what we believe is a beautiful initiative. Head over to our Just Giving page here to learn how you can donate. On the other hand, you can play a part by following our Twitter account @Happy35Eddie, share our tweets or create your own with the hashtag #Eddie4MND to help wish Eddie Happy Birthday in this meaningful way!

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘ will be out in cinemas on November 18th, 2016.
Great news! Eddie is nominated in the category of Leading Actor for his role as Lili Elbe in ‘The Danish Girl‘ at the EE British Academy Film Awards. Fellow nominees in the same category include Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Michael Fassbender.
Here‘s the list with all the nominees. The ceremony will take place in London on Sunday, February 14th. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for Eddie!
The wait is finally over and “The Danish Girl” is finally showing in various selected cinemas in New York and LA but coming to more cinemas this month. Its release in the UK is officially scheduled for January 1st. Please do make sure to follow their official Facebook and Twitter page to find if it might be showing at a cinema near you!
The remarkable love story inspired by the lives of Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener (portrayed by Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander), directed by Academy Award winner Tom Hooper. Lili and Gerda’s marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili’s groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer.
Last month Eddie along with film stars Benedict Cumberbatch CBE and Taron Egerton were announced as official supporters of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Eddie will be taking the role of ‘Patron’ in recognition for his work in creating awareness of MND, and of the MND Association, on a global scale. You might remember that he dedicated his Academy Award for ‘Best Actor’ for ‘The Theory of Everything‘ to everyone suffering the disease. After his Oscar win, in April, he visited an MND Clinic in London to show the Oscar to one of the people who helped him understand the difficulties of living with the disease, Glenn Phillips.
Here are some words Eddie said about becoming an MND Association Patron from the press release:
“I knew that understading the disease was going to be the essential element of ‘The Theory of Everything’. We were invited to visit MND clinics, and I went every couple of weeks for a few months so I could find out what life was really like for people living with the disease. These people were incredibly receptive, and really kind. All the understading they gave me went into the film, and there’s no question that we couldn’t have done it without the help we had from everyone. Being an MND Association Patron tops off the life-changing experiences I had making this film, and learning about the devastation of motor neurone disease along the way.”
Eddie was challenged to take the Ice Bucket Challenge this year by fellow Academy Award-winner Renée Zellweger, who made a video in support of the Golden West Chapter of the ALS Association and he accepted!
The MND Association raised £7 million last year and spent £8.5million on research and projects which support people living with MND. They want to encourage people to take the Ice Bucket Challenge again this year, find out how to get involved here.
