In 2003 the American Film Institute will continue it’s “100 Years…” television special with a look at “100 Heroes & Villains”.
The 50 heroes and 50 villains will be chosen by a group of 1500 people, all of whom work in the motion picture industry. They’ll be able to choose from 400 characters from films dating 1915 through to the present day.
The James Bond series has garnered four possible nominations. Obviously, the character of James Bond has been nominated. Also on the list are three villains; Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Auric Goldfinger and Jaws. All the characters have been nominated as a whole, that is, not for a particular appearance in any of the Bond films.
The three-hour special will premier on the CBS Television Network in June 2003.
The 400 nominations can be downloaded from the AFI’s website.
