America’s Got Talent Golden Buzzers Winners for 2019

Julianne Hough

Julianne Hough pushed her Golden Buzzer for Lucas Islam, and he was ecstatic. 

Lucas Islam

Lucas sang “She Used to Be Mine” from Sara Bareillas’  Waitress. Lucas grew up putting shows in a house along with his sister. And he would go to see Broadway plays by playing Broadway lotteries and finding discounted tickets. He even saw Kinky Boots eight times. 

“I love the audience. I love the crowd. I love the stage. The props. The costume. I want to be up there. I want to do what they do. Broadway is soo good.” Lucas said. 

Luke is from New York City, and he is a member of the Wingspan Arts in Manhattan. He performed with a fellow artist  Gianna Harris, and they sang “The Last Night of the World” from the Broad musical Miss Saigon.  

So he’s going to Hollywood to perform LIVE, and we have to vote. So America we have to vote too. 

Other Golden Buzzer moments are:

Detroit Youth Choir (Terry Crew’s  Choice)

Tyler Butler-Figueroa (Simon Cowell’s choice)

Joseph Allen (Mandel’s choice)

Kodi Lee (Union’s choice)

I hope the contestants who got the Golden Buzzer are practicing before the appearance of the live show in Hollywood.

And the contestants who will be going through the Judges Cut next week I hope they are practicing and they have to perform one more time in front of a live audience and a celebrity judge.  Some will go, and some will stay – that’s Hollywood. Even though they get rejected for some reason, I hope talent agents see some potential in them and give them second in life to make their dream comes true. 

Be sure to watch America’s Got Talent on NBC Tuesday! Watch it LIVE.

Billboard Music Award 2019: Drake Wins

Wow, that was incredible opening from Taylor Swift, the marching band performing “ME.”  She was awesome.

Then the security guard caught Kelly Clarkson sitting next to Terry Crews, and the seats belong to Florida Georgia Line, the security asked her politely to move, and she gracefully sang Florida Georgia Line songs, to convince that she is the host of the program and still the Security Guard did not believe her. So he escorted her out to the stage.

She then sang “Broken and Beautiful” from the soundtrack from Ugly Dolls premiering May 3, 2019, in theaters everywhere, while  Avengers: Endgame is still grossing sales. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is still playing. No rush. It’s not the end of the world.  

Oh, by the way, put back The Voice at 8 pm instead of 9 pm on Tuesday. My dad watches the news at 9 pm.  So please put it back at 8 pm. The Voice comes Monday and Tuesday. So please vote for your favorite contestants.

Drake wins Bill Board 2019

The biggest award winner was Drake. He got twelve awards. Ranging from top artist, male artist, Billboard 200 artist, Hot 100 artists, Streaming song artist, Song sales artist, radio song artist, rap artist, male rap artist, Billboard, 200 album, and  Streaming Song Video.

Paula Abdul did a throwback Musical numbers of all her songs, that was a fantastic number, and someone makes an appearance. This summer she will be a residency of Las Vegas at the Flamingo, so if you fan of her. Get your tickets here.

Then Madonna performs her latest song “Medellin” with Maluma. She spent some of her money to add some CGI of her performance from the previous years. She could have done a throwback musical montage as Paula Abdul did, that will be excited to see. Plus she had great hit songs herself too. It was good. Check out her site here.

Overall, the show was fantastic to watch. Cardi B was there. She won a few awards. Joe Jonas got married to Sophie Turner over the weekend, that means he will know the ending of the Games of Thrones and Elvis too, It was an Elvis impersonator who is an also an ordained minister.

James Corden for Oscars Host

THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN

Hey, Oscars have you ever consider James Corden, as the Oscars host for 2019. He will be perfect for the job. He’s an actor, singer, and the host his late-night show on CBS. He does a lot of parodies of movies and singers on the show. And funny too.

The night when there was a screw up between La La Land and Moonlight, the next day he did a parody of it, and it was hysterical. He also does crosswalk the musicals and carpool karaoke. His show is an Emmy award winner too.  

By the way, he has hosted the Grammy’s and Tony awards ceremony. Why not the Oscars?

Do you want hot-less emcee for the Oscars in 2019? Bob Hope was the master of the hosting gig for the Oscars when he was alive. (1940 – 1979) you can’t bring up the dead to host, even Johnny Carson. In 1989, there was no host for the Oscars only the announcer announcing who’s coming up on stage.

But you do need a comedian who lightens up the crowd. And since people are so political and don’t like President Trump and what he is doing, that will bring down the ratings. You want the ratings to go up, and the Oscars should be entertaining to watch. Please tell the actors to thank their cat or whoever made them successful in becoming an actor.  Actors deserve their shot of fame and recognition of there work.

Carol Brunetti hosted the show in 1973, is there a possibility for her to do it,  even though she’s getting a special award, for the Golden Globe Awards in 2019.

Please consider James Corden to host the Oscars in 2019, if he says no, oh well. James Corden will be the best host.

72nd Tony Awards

host 2

It was the 72nd Tony Awards on CBS, and the top winner was The Band Visit, it is based on an Israeli film about an Egyptian band stranded in a hardscrabble Negev town.

ariel-stachel 2

Ari’el Stachel, the California-born son of an Israeli-Yemeni father and an Ashkenazi mother from New York, won the award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for his performance as a romantic Egyptian trumpeter in the musical.

“Both my parents are here tonight. I have avoided so many events with them because for so many years of my life I pretended I was not a Middle Eastern person,” he said. “And after 9/11 it was very, very difficult for me and so I concealed, and I missed so many special events with them. And they’re looking at me right now, and I can’t believe it,” said the Tony Award winner Ari’el Stachel.

Tony S

Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”) won for Best Actor in a Musical and Katrina Lenk for Best Actress in a Musical for their roles as, respectively, the leader of the band and the Israeli cafe owner who takes him in.

 

Band Vist cast and crew

“The Band’s Visit” also won awards for Best Book (by Itamar Moses), Best Direction of a Musical, Best Original Score (by David Yazbek), Best Lighting Design, Best Orchestration and Best Sound Design.

andrew-garfield

Andrew Garfield took home Leading Actor in a Play for Angels in America, and he was nominated for an Oscar for Hacksaw Ridge in 2017.

Tina Fey, introducing her new musical Mean Girls, that was interesting to see.  Mean Girls 1, Mean Girl’s Tony performance

Robert Deniro1

Robert De Niro introduces Bruce Springsteen before he did that he said “f—k Trump” and people gave him a standing ovation.

How many times do we have to say this, don’t bring politics into awards show? Most of the other contestants, grab their awards, gave inspiring speeches and thanked their family and their agents who helped them succeed. They should ban certain actors to the awards show. We want to see our favorites win. Maybe Robert DeNiro wants better film roles. Thank you, CBS for muting Robert De Niro, f-bomb message, very quickly, and we did not hear it on our TV.  Broadway is about entertainment and escapes as Groban and Bareilles sang in their opening number, “In a world that is scary and hard to endure, if you make art at all you’re a part of the cure” — and this year’s Tonys delivered both, in restorative.

Here are the other winners

Ninetieth Oscars: The Shape of Ebbing Missouri

Jimmy K

Did you watch the Ninetieth Oscar on Sunday night? The big winner was Shape of Water winning four awards which include Best Picture, Director, Production Design and best score.

Jimmy Kimmel was the perfect host. Unfortunately, the ratings were down, not because of Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the correct best picture with big fonts on the card. Will they come back again for the third time? Who knows?

208642FB

Jimmy Kimmel and his actor friends that included Armie Hammer, Mark Hamill, Lupita Nyong’o, Emily Blunt, Gal Gadot, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Margot Robbie left their seats in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday night to surprise the audience at the TCL Chinese Theatre, watching a preview of Wrinkle of Time coming out March 9, 2018, that was fun a surprise.

According to Deadline the highest ratings for the Oscars was back in 2014 when Ellen DeGeneres hosted. Will she do it again? Can she pull off surprise pranks as Jimmy Kimmel did?  Why do actors have to be hypocritical with the politics?

Sexual harassment is a big issue in the workplace and they waited for 10 to 20 years to tell?  And they ruin lives of other actors.

And women are not being recognized in the entertainment business. It’s a harsh world out there just to be recognized for what they do for a living. They sacrificed everything to tell a story just to be accepted. Even actors they worked so hard to study their craft of acting and end up with sexual harassment. It’s a tough job; nothing is easy these days. Actors have to be careful these days. It’s a new world out there.

Frances McDormand

Sam Rockwell

Big winners such as Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell for leading actress and actor for Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri, which was filmed in Sylvia, North Carolina. Frances McDormand lost her Oscar award, she put a billboard sign and got it back. Apparently, some craze fans wanted a prize too.

Visual effects and Cinematography went to Blade Runner2049.

90th Academy Awards - Show, Los Angeles, USA - 04 Mar 2018

Kobey Bryant won for Best Animated Short Film for Dear Basketball with Glen Keane.

allison-janney

Allison Janney won an Oscar for best-supporting actress for I Tonya and a Golden Globe. Won two Emmys for CBS Mom. And four Emmys for West Wing and she likes rap music.

Best Adapted Screenplay went to James Ivory for Call Me by Your Name

Jordan Peele

Jordan Peele won for Best Original Screenplay for Get Out.

gary-oldman-churchill-oscars

Gary Oldman for best actor in the Darkest Hour the story of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. And it won for make-up too.

Here’s the list of the winners

If you like awards shows like I do, It’s fun to see our favorites to win. Maybe people tune out awards show because they do not want to hear actors talk about politics. Awards show needs to be fun and entertaining. More like a three-ring circus.

Will the Emmys be fun and entertaining?
