Katniss, Haymitch & Effie Feature In A New Promo Image For ‘The Hunger Games’

Earlier this month we got to check out a new promo photo of Peeta, Haymitch and Cinna from the upcoming big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games and today we get to check out another photo, this time of Katniss, Haymitch and Effie. Altho there is no textual context that goes along with the photo, I think it’s safe to say that those of us who read the book might have a guess or two about what is going on in the photo. The commentary below contains possible spoilers from the film so … read on at your own risk. Click below to check it out. More »

‘Globes’ Trotting

Altho I received a few invites from some of my fave people on Earth, the lazy side of me won out and I ended up NOT going to any Golden Globes parties and just stayed home and watched the show from my couch. I ordered me some pizza, hot wings and cheesy bread … burrowed myself under my blankets and had a very enjoyable night of awards show watching fun. More »

Brad Pitt Covers ‘W’ Magazine

Brad Pitt may have gone home empty-handed from the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards last night but we can’t feel too bad for the ubersupermegastar. Brad is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new Movie issue of W magazine and in his coverstory interview, he recalls the early days of his acting career … back when he wasn’t a very good actor. Now that Brad is a big star, I guess it’s interesting to read about the early days when he wasn’t a big star … or something. Homie looks really good on the cover of W magazine, tho, I’ll give him that. Click below to check out Brad‘s W coverphoto and read some excerpts from his coverstory interview. More »

The 2012 Golden Globe Awards Are Handed Out

Madonna wasn’t the only Golden Globe Award winner last night … a whole host of other folks were honored with awards in both film and television. The show itself, I gotta say, wasn’t nearly as entertaining as last year’s show. By all accounts, host Ricky Gervais did not perform as successfully this year as he did last year … and I think that fact had a huge impact on the show overall. A lot of my fave actors won this year (Jessica Lange, Meryl Streep, Madonna) as did some of my fave TV shows (Homeland, FTW!) … but I think the French silent film The Artist was the biggest winner of the night. Click below to see some photos from the red carpet arrivals, read some deets about the show itself and see some happy folks holding their shiny new Globes in the press room last night. More »

Madonna Wins The Golden Globe Award For ‘Best Original Song’

Popstar Madonna, who spent all last week promoting her new film W.E. and her new album M.D.N.A. in interviews both here in the US (on ABC News) and in the UK (on The Graham Norton Show), was in attendance at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards last night. Maddy was nominated for Best Original Song for her ballad Masterpiece (from her directorial debut film W.E.). Altho Elton John bitchily commented before the show that Madonna didn’t have “a fucking chance” at winning, Madonna DID win the award … over Elton John … who lost. After Elton‘s loss, his hubby David Furnish had bitchy things of his own to say … on Facebook. LOL! In the press room, Madonna (with Golden Globe in hand) was asked a host of questions … including questions pertaining to her upcoming new album. Click below to hear what she had to say about M.D.N.A.

Watch: Martin Luther King, Jr. Delivers His ‘I Have A Dream’ Speech

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr Day here in the US and while many folks have the day off from work, many others are using their “free time” today to volunteer and give back to the community (in the spirit of MLK‘s life long work). I know that it may be difficult for some to actually get out and volunteer as much as they might like but I think it’s important that we take some time today and at least pause in reflection of Martin Luther King, Jr‘s amazing life and life’s work. If you have some time, I urge you to click below and watch Dr. King‘s famous I Have A Dream speech, which was delivered on the National Mall in Washington DC on August 28, 1963. More »

Is Marina And The Diamonds Recording A Song With Britney Spears?

Marina from Marina and the Diamonds posted a message on her official Twitter profile earlier today that claims she is working on a new song with Britney Spears. The message came so far out of left field that I had a hard time believing that it was true. I mean, don’t get me wrong … I am IN LUST with the idea of Britney collaborating on a song with Marina and the Diamonds but … unfortch, Marina‘s tweet was not serious. Click below to read Marina‘s initial tweet and the eventual clarification that there are no plans for Marina and Britney to work together. More »
