Blue Water Film Festival to honor actor Curtis Armstrong

Curtis Armstrong will appear at this year's Blue Water Film Festival and be receiving the one-of-a-kind "Honorary Nerd Award" presented by international computer service company, Nerds on Site.

The presentation will take place on the final day of the BWFF during the Blue Water Film Awards at McMorran Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Armstrong is from Berkley, Mich., and has been a working actor for nearly 30 years. Armstrong has guest-starred or played recurring roles on over 65 television series (The Closer, CSI, House, Grey's Anatomy, My Name is Earl) and a full spectrum of feature films including Risky Business, Better Off Dead, One Crazy Summer, the Academy Award-winning Ray as well as this summer's musical hit, Sparkle with Jordan Sparks and the late Whitney Houston.

Armstrong is probably best known as "Dudley Dawson" or "Booger" in the 80's cult-favorite, Revenge of the Nerds, "Bert Viola" on the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated Moonlighting and as the voice of "Snot" on Fox's animated hit, American Dad.

David Everitt of Nerds on Site is excited for this opportunity. "The Revenge of the Nerds movies have a bit of a cult following among the Nerds on our team worldwide. Our corporate leadership team has talked about finding a way to recognize the actors and characters of those movies but we didn't know where to begin. Now with the festival in town we are thrilled to be able to make this actually happen. We are planning to have a lot of our North American Nerds come in for this event and we couldn't be happier to be presenting this award to Mr. Armstrong."

Tickets for the event can be bought at the McMorran Box Office, TicketMaster or online at

Tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the door.

Advance tickets are $10 and $15 at the door and are available on sale now at
