Golden Globes 2018

Seth Meyes

It was the 75th annual Golden Globes last weekend, and the celebrities were happy to the first awards of the new year of 2018. Seth Meyers, Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC, got great reviews of his hosting, he reminded me of Bob Hope when he hosted the Oscars and other awards shows.

Blanco

The actors and actress wore black for sexual harassment, and the actresses looked gorgeous in black gowns and dresses.

75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Press Room, Los Angeles, USA - 07 Jan 2018

People are still talking about it, Oprah Winfrey, gave an inspiring and inspirational speech when she received the Cecil B. DeMille award. Her speech was moving. The news media wanted her to be next president for 2020. Does she have her own network to run? She has several movies coming out this year.  What’s the qualification for being the president? Isn’t that peer pressure and fake news to stir up that she wants to be president. The news media is stirring up controversy again. Get your facts straight!

natalie-portman

When Ron Howard and Natalie Portman presented for Best Director, she said “And here are the all-male nominees,” before reading out the list.

Guillermo Del Toro

And then Guillermo del Toro won the category for “The Shape of Water.”

If they want women directors to be nominated for an Oscars or Golden Globes, why is the Golden Globe board members overlooking women directors? Is it the story of the film or the actors in characters in the film? It’s the subject matter and the story.

Kathryn Bigelow did win for best director for directing The Hurt Locker at the Oscars in 2010.  She was nominated for a Golden Globe that year, but she won the Oscar instead. So, if you don’t win the Golden Globe, the Oscars are much better.

barbra-streissand

In 1984, Barbra Streisand won a Golden Globe for directing Yentl, not the Oscar that year. I saw that movie; it was very good.

They have women directors; however, they are not nominated.

Three Billboards

The offbeat Martin McDonagh film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri pulled off a decisive win with four awards including Best Picture Drama, Actress in a Drama for Frances McDormand, Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell, and Screenplay.  And it was filmed in Sylva, NC near the mountains of Asheville, NC. It’s a small town.

Saoirse-Ronan

The Director, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, grabbed Best Picture in that category as well as an Actress prize for Saoirse Ronan (above), for Oscar.

Little Big Lies

HBO Big Little Lies Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern won for the series.

69 Emmy Night

Handmaid Tale

What an exciting night for TV!  It was Emmy’s 69th award show. Did your favorite win? Did you know it was on Sunday night? It celebrates the best shows and the actors who portray different memorable characters.

The top winners were “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu) was crowned best TV drama on Sunday at the Emmy Awards, it also won for writing and directing while earning Elisabeth Moss the best actress and Ann Dowd the best drama supporting actress award.

Saturday Night Live also won Emmys. Kate McKinnon played Hilary Clinton for Best supporting actress in a comedy. So, did Alec Baldwin for Best supporting actor in a comedy.

Baldwin spoke directly to Trump, who has complained in the past that he was cheated out of a trophy for hosting “Celebrity Apprentice”: “I suppose I should say, ‘At long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy.'”

Melissa McCarthy was honored at last weekend’s creative arts Emmys as the best guest actress for her “SNL” work, including portraying Sean Spicer. The former White House press secretary made a surprise Emmys appearance, wheeling in his own podium.

lena Waithe

Master of None’s Lena Waithe delivered an emphatic and empowering message to her “LGBTQIA family” after winning the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series with the show’s co-creator, Aziz Ansari.  The win notably made Waithe the first black woman to win the Emmy for Best Writing in a Comedy Series.

Donald Glover the first black person to win an Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

HBO’s Big Little Lies, which ended up winning five awards in total over the course of the evening, including Outstanding Limited Series.

Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, and Lily Tomlin reunite on stage to celebrate 37 years ago their film 9 to 5 and the TV series “Nine to five” 1982 – 1988. They compare their boss from the movie to be “a sexist, egotist, lying hypocritical bigot,” to President Trump.

Hollywood enough with the Trump Bashing, the reason why the Emmy rating was low, because celebrities keep bashing the president and it’s a turn-off, the TV audience will turn you off. Be professional actors and entertain us. This go for other awards shows too. Be professional accept your award and be grateful that you won. Let Alec Baldwin host the Emmy next time.

RuPaul makes a great Emmy while being interview by Stephen Colbert.

Oh, by the way, the creative arts award was on Saturday night, the night before the Emmys. They showcase the behind the scenes of TV shows and their creativity putting a show together, and they also won too.

They should do this to for the Oscars too, to showcase their creative side and be recognized for what they do or add more categories.

Moonlight La La Land

Did you watch the Oscars the other night? OMG what happened?

faye-and-betty

best-picture-2017

What happened was Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, better known as Bonnie and Clyde from the 1967 movie was supposed to announce the best picture for 2017. Apparently, they got the wrong envelope, he did pause for the moment, he could have paused for more asked for the right envelope and presented the right winner, but she blurted out “La La Land”, which did not win it was “Moonlight,” I prefer La La land.

La La Land won 6 out of 14 Oscars, and they were best director, actress, production design, cinematography, score and original song.

Moonlight, tells a story of a black man by following him through the episodes: as a young boy, as a teenager, and as an adult.

And La La Land tells a story Mia who is a struggling actress and wanted to be noticed while Sebastian is a struggling Jazz singer and wanted to be noticed too, And it was a musical dance drama,

jungle-book-visual-effects

The Visual Effects went to The Jungle Book, which beat out Star Wars: The Rogue One, in which they recreated dead actors and made Carrie Fisher younger again. I agree in which it went to the Jungle Book, the visual effects of the Jungle Book were incredible and very creative and complexity of creating animals to interact with humans and making them talk with CGI. Jon Favreau who directed Iron Man directed The Jungle Book.

Emma Stone

Emma Stone won for best performance by an actress in a leading role for La La Land. Ryan Gosling did not win for leading man it was Casey Affleck for Manchester By the Sea, produced by Matt Damon.

oscar-surprise-1

Jimmy Kimmel was a great host for the show, I hope he comes back.  Jimmy Kimmel surprises a group of tourist who was on the tour bus to see celebrities houses, but it took a detour to the Oscar ceremony and saw real celebrities, and took a selfie with them.

matt-jim-1a

When Matt Damon was presenting with Ben Affleck, the music was getting louder and louder and find out that Jimmy Kimmel was conducting the orchestra.

In the Memoriam section, they put the wrong picture with the deceased name, in other words, she’s alive. The lady on the left is alive.

jan-chapman

The two ladies worked together on 1993’s The Piano, alongside director Jane Campion. Pictured (from left): Jan Chapman, Janet Patterson (the Center, she died), Jane Campion.

Since the actors were getting hungry, Jimmy drop balloons of food, arranging from candies to donuts.

 

Actor Chan is congratulated by fellow actor Stallone after accepting his Honorary Award at the 8th Annual Governors Awards in Los Angeles

Jackie Chan Finally Wins Honorary Oscar After 56 Years And 200 Films.

And he got one, I hope this helps with all the medical bills, he has broken more bones and been to many rehabs to get his strength back for he can fight again. Jackie, please use a stunt guy.

Haille Steinfeld looked Marvelous!

Grammys 2017: Adele Flintstone Oswalt

adele-mainSomething in the air at the Grammys, first of all, Adele won five Grammys which includes, an album of the year, song of the year, record of the year, pop vocal album, and pop solo performance.  While Beyonce won for Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video for her song Formation, which was taken from the album Lemonade.

The 59th GRAMMY Awards - Roaming Show

Other winners of the show that weren’t broadcast, because music is a huge category and the show is only 3 hours and some minutes long. They were announced early during the broadcast. If they have broadcast the whole event it would be either 5 to 6 hours and the expectance speech will be longer and boring too. Bathroom break! Or even better a nap break!

Carol Brunette she won for Best Spoken Word Album: Carol Burnett, In Such Good Company: Eleven Years Of Laughter, Mayhem and Fun in the Sandbox. Previous winner was Obama.

If you wondering Star Wars: The Force Awakens won for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media: John Williams.

This is strange, The Flintstone won for Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals: Jacob Collier.  Watch it below.

I know what you doing now is humming to the theme song of the Flintstone in your office.

Patton Oswalt

And for Comedy Album Patton Oswalt, he visited Seth Myers a couple of weeks ago to talk about her comedy album, and he is hysterically funny to watch.

Did you know during the commercial break, they were showing highlights of previous winners of the past for the audience members? Highlights included Beyoncé and Prince covering “Purple Rain” in 2004; Elton John singing “Stan” with Eminem in 2001, and Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus duetting on “Fifteen” back in 2009, that was interesting. I hope they do the same thing for the Oscars in 2017, show old movie clips from the past or even better the complete longer version of the people who died within the year and added the lasted person who died in the recent hours.

21-pilots-winning-grammy-underwear

After winning the award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their hit song “Stressed Out,” Twenty One Pilots members Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun immediately got up and removed their pants, choosing to walk up to the podium in their underwear.

Of course, you can remove your pants when watching the Grammys in your home.  We can’t see you, but at the Grammys, everyone can see you, that would be embarrassing. Feel free to do anything at home. But don’t do it in the office or workplace, they are rules.

695236579AB00112_The_59th_G

James Corden followed it up by stripping down to his underwear to introduce Ed Sheeran.

Keep your pants on.

Before the show start, the executive producer told, if you win let your voices heard or stick what you wanted to say. They only have either one minute or a minute and forty-five second. As long they keep it short and to the point. And always thank the people who helped them to further their career.
