Oscars

Jerry Maguire is my favourite movie of all time and this behind the scenes look at the control room for 1996 Academy Awards broadcast is pretty special. I can only imagine wanting to sleep for a week after 3 hours of doing that.

Oscars draw largest audience in 10 year

Perhaps it’s the pulling power of Ellen DeGeneres but the 86th Academy Awards, hosted by the daytime talk show host, drew their largest audience in 10 years for the ABC in the US with 43 million viewers.  In recent years, only NFL playoff games have fared better in the ratings.

The broadcast is also being touted as having the best Oscars host since Billy Crystal.

The winner of the ‘Best Actress’ award at the Oscars gives a bunch of brilliant answers to some seriously idiotic questions.

Looks like Seth MacFarlane has no interest in returning as host of the Oscars.

The Family Guy creator was criticised by some for his debut performance as host of the ceremony last weekend.

When asked by a Twitter follower if he would consider hosting again, he said “no way”. Continue reading »

THE 69TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE® AWARDS

LIVE & Exclusive to VIBE, Monday 16 January from 2pm

Highlights encore Monday 16 January, 9pm & Sunday 22 January, 5.30pm

After weeks of rumours it’s finally official – the multi-talented BAFTA, Emmy® and Golden Globe Award® winner Ricky Gervais (The Invention Of Lying; The Office) promises even more cutting humour at Hollywood’s expense when he returns to host this year’s ceremony live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

“I made a decision last year that I shouldn’t be doing it for the 20 egos in the room, I should be doing it for the 200 million people watching at home and I’m going to do that this year. I’m not beholden to those people in the room so I can say exactly what I want. So, I’d say to people in the room, be afraid,” Gervais warned.

“I don’t think anyone had any right to be offended [last year] but they were” says Gervais. “This year I’m going to make sure their offence is completely justified.”

The Hollywood Foreign Press has named 74 year-old Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman as this year’s recipient of the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award.  Visit http://www.goldenglobes.org/nominations/ to view nominations for the other categories.

Lauded by critics for its style, simplicity and genuine warmth, the Screen Actors Guild Awards®, which made its debut in 1995, has become one of the industry’s most prized honours. The only televised awards show to exclusively honour performers, it presents thirteen awards for acting in film and television in a fast moving two hour show. The awards focus on both individual performances as well as on the work of the entire ensemble of a drama series and comedy series, and the cast of a motion picture. These honours are fundamental to the spirit of the Screen Actors Guild Awards® because they recognise what all actors know – that acting is a collaborative art.  Visit http://www.sagawards.org/media-pr/11213 to view nominations for the other categories.

Actress Melissa Leo has picked up the dubious honour of being the first Academy Award winner to swear during her acceptance speech.

Leo, who picked up Best Supporting Actress for her work in The Fighter, let it slip after she accepted the award from actor Kirk Douglas during the ceremony, which was broadcast live on TV.

“When I watched Kate [Winslet] do this two years ago she made it look so f**king easy!” Leo said before immediately realising her mistake.

The actress apologised backstage saying: “Those words, I apologise to anyone that they offend. There is a great deal of the English language that is in my vernacular.”
