And the winner is

Chris RockThis is the 88th Academy Awards and Chris Rock was the host. He handle the elephant in the room good, no it was not Donald Trump, but it was the black community of actors who wasn’t nominated or won. His jokes were funny. However, they need more diversity. What they need is black screenwriters and great storytellers. They have plenty of black actors, but they need jobs to perform these characters. They could take a page of Black History month. Pick a historically figure in history who inspired America to be great again and make a movie out of it. Or make them as a Superheroes.

Star Wars was shut out because of Mad Max: Fury road won 6 awards for Best Costume, Production design, Hair and Makeup, Film Editing, Sound mixing, and Sound editing. I have to watch this.

black reaction

Did you know that black people would only watch black actors in the movies? The other movies they don’t know.

“What? That’s a movie.”

Brei larson 2

I need to get a room with Brie Larson, she won for Best Actress, for Room.

Leonardo DiCrapio

Leonardo DiCaprio finally won for the Revenant. Also pushing for climate change, so if you have to work this morning, just walk or take a bike to work. If you are late for work, just tell them there was traffic. Let’s do something with climate change.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga sang “Til It Happens to You,” her Oscar-nominated song about sexual assault, a curtain parted onstage, and dozens of grim-faced young men and women stepped forward.

A nominated song from the documentary movie “Hunting Ground” a documentary shocker about rape on American college campuses, is a must-watch work of cine-activism.

Mark Rylance from the Bridge of Spies won best supporting actor. Sylvester Stallone was eating Girl Scout cookies. Stay off the cookies. Chris Rock daughter and friends passed out the Girl Scout cookies and they raised enough money.

alicia-vikander-danish-mach

Alicia Vikander won Best supporting role for the “Danish Girl” while Ex Machina won for best visual effects.

Sopt Light

Spot Light won for best Picture. In 2001, editor Marty Baron of The Boston Globe assigns a team of journalists to investigate allegations against John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 boys. Led by editor Walter “Robby” Robinson (Michael Keaton), reporters Michael Rezendes (Mark Ruffalo), Matt Carroll and Sacha Pfeiffer interview victims and try to unseal sensitive documents.

Golden Globes Awards 2016

Sunday night was the Golden Globes who won? Your Favorites.

Here are the Highlights

Stallone narrowly avoided criticism when he initially forgot to thank director Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan in his acceptance speech for the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture award for his role in “Creed”. It’s been 40 years that he was nominated for Golden Globe, but this time he won. Best comeback movie ever made.

Sly Stalone

“I wanna thank Rocky, the best friend I ever had!” he got emotional and wanted to thank his family but forgot to mention the actor and director of the movie.

Jamie-Foxx

Jamie Foxx won in so many ways at the Golden Globes. While presenting the award for Best Original Score, Foxx made fun of Steve Harvey’s “Miss Universe” fail, announcing “Straight Out of Compton” as the winner, which obviously wasn’t nominated (shade).

“I’m sorry Folks. I made a mistake it’s right here on the card. I take full responsibility,” Foxx said in his best Harvey imitation.

Denzel Washington, this year’s recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, kept his remarks short. “I forgot my speech,” he laughed. Then he had trouble reading it. “I need my glasses,” he laughed. “I’m speechless.” He had in his pocket early that evening, but forgot his glasses. He should have memorize it, he is an actor.

Lady Gaga

Okay, I’m going to just sound a little excited on this one: Lady Gaga just won the Golden Globe for best actress in a limited television series for her work in American Horror Story: Hotel. That’s not even the full name of the category (it’s much more convoluted than that), but the fact is that Lady Gaga won for her TV series debut playing a vampiric bloodthirsty character known as The Countess. And there’s a reason she won: she’s been fantastic, fearless, and heartfelt since the very first episode aired.

Taraji P. Henson won “Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Drama” for her role as Cookie on FOX “Empire” beating out Viola Davis, Robin Wright, Caltriona Balfe, and Eva Green. She passed out Cookies to her friends.

“Who knew that playing an ex-convict would take me all around the globe?” Henson said in her acceptance speech. She went on about how she thought it would be another one of her other roles that landed her a golden globe, but “it’s cookie who spent 17 years in jail for selling crack, so the world loves real.”

Henson thanked “Empire” creator Lee Daniels and her co-stars Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollet, Trai Bayers, and Bryshere Gray. And when they sent her the signal to wrap up her speech? She hilariously snapped back, “I’ve waited 20 years for this! You gon wait” – in true Cookie fashion.

The 67 Emmy Awards

The Emmy show ended right on time. No one went overboard on their expectant speeches, only a few. The Emmys did it again, snubbing the people who died this year and they were Alton “Ben” Powers, James Horner, Yvonne Craig, Christopher Lee and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper they made their contribution to television. When would they ever include all the people who died in the Television industry?

The Creative Arts Awards, which were the night before, they celebrate the technical awards for television. They should do this for the Oscars awards for next year in 2016. Have a Creative Awards for the Oscar, the technical awards, included the stunt performers and other technical stuff on one night and then acting, production and etc. the next night, the main event. Have it two-night celebration, that means the show would not go too long and include a two part In Memoriam of the people in the Entertainment Business.

The high light of the evenings was did Jimmy Kimble ate the winner and forgotten who won? Don’t eat the card. Only him and he accountants and his gastroenterologist know for sure.

Binge watch every episode on TV in an underground bunker for about a year or so, not a good idea. Is that pizza moving? Take a bath!

Ricky Gervais did not win an Emmy this year. Who won last year?

Andy Samberg and Seth Meyers team up and gave their boss a “World’s Greatest Boss” coffee mug.

Nominated actors Tatiana Maslany and Tony Hale, both wielding metal detectors and scavenging for valuables. Maslany found a can of beans and started eating them, only to have Hale fight her for the can.

Fred Savage, honoring all the TV shows that left the air this year. These included the farewells of David Letterman, Stephen Colbert, and Jon Stewart, but also the series finales of “Mad Men,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Parenthood,” “Justified,” “Sons of Anarchy” (earning probably its first mention on an Emmys show), “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “Nurse Jackie,” and others. Unfortunately the clips chosen almost all consisted of major plot spoilers and very last scenes.

Jon Hamm became the first (and last) member of the Sterling Cooper team to win a dramatic acting Emmy. It was a weird moment, which began with the actor not striding gracefully to the stage but climbing onto the platform belly-first. (Hope that tux was a rental.) Then he proved what a great actor he is by being nothing like Don Draper, a character who was always smooth, polished, and glib. Hamm’s speech was brief, awkward, and cryptic, thanking his supporters by first name only. (Hamm fans will note that he thanked his dog, Cora, and “Jen,” presumably actress Jennifer Westfeldt, his girlfriend for 18 years until their split about two weeks ago.)

Viola Davis gave the most emotional speech of the night — itself a tough contest on an evening that included tearful gratitude from Jeffrey Tambor, Regina King, and Uzo Aduba. But then, Davis was making history — the “How to Get Away With Murder” star was the first black performer in Emmy’s 67 years to win Best Actress in a Drama — and she knew it. She began her speech by quoting Harriet Tubman and gave shout-outs to fellow nominee Taraji P. Henson and several other current black TV actresses (including Kerry Washington, Halle Berry, Nicole Beharie, Meghan Good, and Gabrielle Union) for opening doors. “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is simply opportunity,” Davis said. “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there. So here’s to all the writers, the awesome people — people who have redefined what it means to be beautiful, to be sexy, to be a leading woman, to be black.” Samberg had been making begrudging jokes earlier in the evening about how slow and incremental TV has been in embracing diversity, but Davis made her win feel like a major victory for both herself and the whole industry

Favorite Reality Shows Winners of 2015

Here are some winners from your favorite reality shows, if you haven’t watch any of these shows and then you are living under a rock or too busy and your shows are being canceled. WTF? Watch TV! You might learn something. Forget about the violence in America that would never change. Here are some results.

Sawyer FFrom The Voice, it was the night full of singers performing their best and they wish they could win, plus they had fun. Unfortunately, one could win and rest could either go home or fulfil their lifetime dream as singers, if they could get record contracts, which would be great.

For those results, here you go:

  • Fourth Place – Koryn Hawthorne from Team Pharrell
  • Third Place – Joshua Davis from Team Adam
  • Second Place – Meghan Linsey from Team Blake
  • Season 8 Winner – Sawyer Fredericks from Team Pharrell

Hey for Sawyer Fredericks who had won, he has a great voice. But does he have a good image? I am not saying he should lose the hair. But this is the music business. He needs a good image to sell music. His singer career might do well, but it is the image.

Nick on American Idol 2015For American Idol Season 14, they had a two hours show and they had a lot of familiar faces that came from this year on American Idol, it was the rejects, not the band, but rejects that people did not voted through and they were talented. Guest performers, like Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown, Fall Out Boy, Prince Royce, Andy Grammer, Michael McDonald and many more.

Don’t worry people, American Idol is coming back for one more season in 2016 and then off the air. So people, if you think you can sing, you have one more chance to make it and make American Idol a legacy to find talented singers and make you famous the easy way. Or do it the hard way, audition, audition, and audition. Door slam, door slam, and wait you are talented. Let’s give you a shot. A lot of hard work and it is not easy. Hard work helps.

The top contenders
