Tom Cruise Tuesday! – Newsworthy: Tom chosen for high honor

Happy Tom Cruise Tuesday!!

Normally at Buttered Popcorn, we don’t pay much attention to the news. So many times, the media has been unkind to Tom, and many articles include little snide remarks about Tom, even when they’re saying something that’s positive. So, normally, you won’t see news stories about Tom around here.

Today is an exception! We found out some great news, and Tom Cruise Tuesday is the perfect place to bring it up! According to Deadline, The Will Rogers Motion Piture Pioneer Foundation has chosen to honor Tom with the Pioneer of the Year Award! Tom Cruise Tuesday is all about celebrating Tom, and Buttered Popcorn couldn’t be happier about this news!

Tom accepting his Golden Globe for “Jerry Maguire”. Twenty years ago! OMG we’re old…

Not only will Tom be given a high honor, this is the first time an actor will receive the award. Before now, the award has only been given to industry executives! Tom Cruise is making history, and we couldn’t be more proud!

What does it mean to win this award? well, it means Tom Cruise is awesome, of course! We knew that already, but the award points to special parts of his awesomeness:

“The Pioneer of the Year Award is given to a respected member of the motion picture community whose professional leadership, service, and commitment to philanthropy is exemplary.”

We agree, award people! And we congratulate you, Tom Cruise!! If anyone deserves to break the mold and win an award that’s never been bestowed on an actor before, it’s you!

We can’t wait until April 25th, when we hope that someone will put out a video of the award ceremony! If they do, we will try to post it here, or at least post some quotes from the ceremony. We love it when people say nice things about Tom, and there’s sure to be plenty of that happening at the ceremony!

We’re SO excited for Tom Cruise! Here’s a few of our favorite pictures just because!

Happy smile, right in front of some famous award or other.

Melt that butter and read on!
