Gabby Awards Countdown Party
11/22/2010 - By New York, NY

Gabby Awards Countdown Party

With a shining marquis high above the Avenue of the Americas in New York City, the countdown to the 2011 Gabby Awards was officially launched in grand style on the evening of November 22.

The event opened with an introduction and welcome by Greek America Foundation founder Gregory Pappas, who spoke about the organization’s goals and projects, including the upcoming Gabby Awards in New York City that are scheduled for June 4, 2011 at Ellis Island.

What followed was a special multi-media lecture called “Hellenism and Hollywood: From Aristotle to Alexander (Payne)” that chronicled the story of how Greek Americans impacted the development of Hollywood over the years.

Gianopulos, well-known for his studio’s many successful films, including Hollywood’s two biggest box office hits Titanic and Avatar, recounted stories from yesteryear and shared clips with the audience that told an amazing legacy of Greek involvement—on many levels—in the development of the entertainment industry in America. The presentation took many emotional turns—especially when clips were shown from films like “America America” by Elia Kazan, “Never on Sunday” and “Zorba the Greek.”
