Venice Beach — On June 16th, ABC hosted the first ever World Stunt Awards. When most recipients step up to the platform they usually first thank God, or their manager. When stunt performer Jill Brown stepped up to receive her award for “Best High Work” in the movie “The Cell” she first thanked her chiropractor for, “keeping her body working.”
Jill Brown was the stunt double for Jennifer Lopez and the scene was the fall from a box (Three Falls from Box) about an hour into the movie. Jill has performed stunts in many other films such as Bandits, The Wedding Planner, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, Inspector Gadget, Enemy of the State, Home Fries, Lethal Weapon 4, Small Soldiers, Armageddon, Godzilla (1998), Starship Troopers, Titanic, Conspiracy Theory, and many others. (below is a link to films and TV series Jill has performed stunts in)
The award ceremony was held on May 20th at the Barker Hanger at Santa Monica Airport and was televised on ABC on June 16th. Arnold Schwarzenegger (not to steal the spotlight from Jill) received the first Taurus Honorary Award for best-action movie star. He can put that next to his Honorary Doctor of Chiropractic diploma that he was awarded from Cleveland Chiropractic College.
The program was hosted by Alec Baldwin who according to rumors, knows his chiropractic listings quite well. (notice a pattern here?)
Thank you to Jill Brown for recognizing her chiropractor and chiropractic on National Television and for doing so many cool stunts in so many movies I have been to see. (all except Bandits) And thank you to Jill’s chiropractor (who’s name I will add as soon as I get it) for keeping Jill subluxation free. Hopefully we’ll have a photo of Jill soon.
