Some exciting news – Jensen is going to be attending the Saturn Awards tomorrow night! Supernatural creator Eric Kripke will be honoured at the event;
The Dan Curtis Legacy Award will be presented to producer / writer Eric Kripke who is the creator and producer of one of television’s most popular genre shows, Supernatural, which has been on the air since 2005. Eric’s work also includes the NBC series Revolution, Ghost Facers, and Tarzan which he created with Mike Werb and Michael Colleary. His newest project is the upcoming tv event, Time. Eric is one of the most successful and sought after showrunners in television today. Dan Curtis was one of television’s most successful producers having produced such classic series as Dark Shadows, The Night Stalker tele-movie, Trilogy of Terror, and the mini-series The Winds of War and War and Remembrance.
Yesterday Jensen shared the exciting news on his social media accounts that himself and Supernatural friend and co-star, Misha Collins, have joined forces with Random Acts and Creation Stands to bring about a new project, You Are Not Alone. This campaign will work together with To Write Love On Her Arms and I’m Alive to fund the creation of a crisis support network to help those dealing with mental illness and addiction. Below is a statement from Random Acts website;
The Supernatural Fandom was the cornerstone of Random Acts’ beginnings and we continue to be supported by the community. It is with great joy and excitement that we announce a multi-faceted partnership with IMAlive and To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) to bring this new initiative to fruition. Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Creation Stands have joined together with Random Acts to provide support for this important program.
The #SPNFamily Crisis Support Network is a community support system that helps fans cope with mental health issues such as depression, self-injury, and addiction.
Misha on stage with fans
Together, and in partnership with Jensen and Misha’s “You Are Not Alone” Creation Stands T-shirt campaign (launching February 2016), we are raising funds to develop this online community platform. The platform will provide:
Training for fan volunteers who wish to be crisis responders in their spare time,
Immediate access to support lifelines for fans in crisis, and
Local community resources for those needing additional support or information.
We are developing this platform to work in tandem and partnership with two amazing nonprofits, IMAlive and TWLOHA. – [ source ]
Part of the campaign is funding and for their first fundraising event Jensen and Misha have released a t-shirt in collaboration with Creation Stands and can be purchased by following this link. Jensen also made a post about it on his official Facebook page;
Okay y'all…here it is. I'm proud to join my buddy, Misha Collins , in raising funds for a cause from the ground up. …
Congratulations to Jensen on winning his first ever People’s Choice Award this week for Favourite Sci-Fy/Fantasy Actor, beating out David Tennant, Ian Somerhalder, Sam Heughan, and his Supernatural co-star Misha Collins.
While Jensen was sadly not able to attend the award show to accept his award, he posted a video on his official Facebook page, accepting his “award”….you can watch the hilarious video below.
My People's Choice Award acceptance video. (Some of Misha Collins best work.) Thanks y'all. 2016 is starting off on a good note!
Earlier this week both Jensen and his wife Danneel tweeted out asking people to check out an auction for The Thinkery – Supernatural fans have the chance to bid to win a signed chair from Jensen, Jared, Misha and Mark, as well as a signed script (signed by Jensen, Jared and Misha) from episode 11.03 Bad Seed which Jensen has directed this season – and hasn’t even aired yet! Bidding will close September 25 at 9.00pm.
The Thinkery is “an evolution of Austin Children’s Museum. It’s Austin’s sparkling new home for “why” and “how.” A place where science and families play side by side. Where people connect with ideas by doing, making and experiencing. It’s a foundry for a new generation of innovators and creative problem solvers. And it’s a heck of a good time.”
Jensen and Danneel are listed as Platinum Sponsers so I hope that means we may get a chance to see Jensen and Danneel attending the “Austin Black Tie” event which is held on September 25, 2015 at the JW Marriott in Austin, Texas.
Supernatural Season 10 is now available to buy (in the US)! If you haven’t went out to the shops to buy your own copy or ordered it online already you can do so on Amazon – I have added links below to purchase the DVD and BluRay versions.
Last night the 2015 Teen Choice Awards aired and winners for the various categories were announced – while Jensen did not attend the show himself and co-star Misha Collins won in their nominated category of “Choice TV Chemistry” – congrats guys! Below is a link to the tweet from the official Teen Choice Awards twitter;
While Jensen may not have attended the award show he still had a great Sunday – judging from the pictures he shared on his Instagram! From fan reports we know that Jensen and his family, Danneel and JJ, spent Sunday with Misha and his family in Washington State and enjoyed a sunset boat-ride!
Due to issues with the sites host I wasn’t able to post this news until today, but on Saturday 08 August Jensen officially joined Instagram!
While Jensen’s account is not yet verified he confirmed the news via his twitter and his facebook pages – letting fans know that he, along with the help of his toddler JJ, were helping “squash” the imposter accounts – he posted an adorable picture of the pair as the first post on his account ♥
If that wasn’t cute enough Danneel’s profile picture is an adorable picture of herself and Jensen outside Jo’s Coffee, Austin – the picture has been added to the gallery and can be viewed by following the link below.
