Oscars 2014 Wrap-up | Best Awards Acceptance Speeches – The Actors

I Love awards winner speeches, especially at the Oscars because they made it so official so emotional and so deep that they can sometimes be a perfect example to any people that has to prep an official discourse. This year acceptance speeches were about ‘Dreams and dreamers’ ; ‘Women empowerment’ ‘Being an Hero’ ; Perseverance ; Freedom ; Fighting and Living. This is very Hollywood style but every discourse has to send strong messages on actual subject, such as Leto talking about his single mom or addressing the current issues in Ukraine and Venezuela. Mc Conaughey’s “I am my own hero” speech was a bit selfish but it touch me as to help me to grow my faith so it works for me ! Jared Leto Oscars 2014: Jared Leto wins Best Supporting Actor for ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ (Click here to watch) “In 1971, Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school drop-out and a single mum but somehow she managed to make a better …

Post Oscars Wraps-up | A Star Is Born

Lupita Nyong’o Career Prospectus Lupita won Best Supporting Actress. And she well deserved it. Her speech was simple yet very inspiring. She had the joy of her life. And I can certainly understand why. Lupita’s Future I read in a discussion yesterday Oscars day that Lupita Nyong’o doesn’t have any films in production at the moment. She’s in that Liam Neeson film, Non-Stop, and then… Nothing? Comparing her trajectory to Jennifer Lawrence, who had a breakout with Winters Bone, followed by mostly quality films, then got not only into one but two franchises, does this smack of racism to anyone else? We all know Hollywood had a case of racism for a long time. And even though 12 Years A Slave won big yesterday and Lupita has had big lights on her since a couple of months, she still might experience difficulties finding new roles in the future. So why does a Black supporting actress winner have to win less than a white best actress? Remember Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis? Or even Jennifer Hudson ? They won big but …

Oscar Race Edition | The Ultimate Boys Face-Off

Awards Season : The Boys Battle Oh what an awards month !! I wrote about the Girls’ Oscars battle  and the Lupita vs J-Law. But this year boys battle is more entertaining. This competition is tighter than it’s ever have been in a long time, maybe ever. Oscar voting is in its final stretch. Which means that the right work, the right communication, the right appearance and the right speeches will make the right difference. Means Brad Pitt had to put his little golden face to work and campaign for 12 Years A Slave. And he finally showed up in London to the BAFTAs with La Jolie. So wassup in the men category ? The Ultimate Face-Off : The A-List VS The B-List BEST ACTOR  Matthew McConaughey “THE GOOD OL’ BOY MADE GOOD” : 1 GG + 1 SAG  MMC Strategy : Matthew is the favourite of this year. It’s difficult to understand his star rank. From my point of view he’s not an A-List, he’s a super bankable  B+ List with no A movie in his career. Last year marked …

Time For Your Daily Dose of Lupita

Lovely Lupita Nyong’o is coming on strong. She’s the new fresh girl of 2014 “She’s the most popular girl on the award circuit. Even more popular than Jennifer Lawrence since people (unfairly, arguably) seem to be tired of the Jennifer Lawrence. Lupita is the Lawrence of 2014 and Lawrence is the Hathaway of 2014? Discuss.”_Lainey Gossip Read more about Lupita Nyong’o HERE  

The Oscars Race Edition | Leo Dicaprio x The Wolf of Wall Street

The teen heartthrob who became too much of an A++ list star Last night my cousin who now start to admit that I am kind of a celebrity expert asked me if I thought that Leonardo Dicaprio might have a chance to get an Oscar this time. And weirdly I found it super hard to answer this question. So I thought it was my responsibility to answer this crucial question because we  are all be wondering why WHY Leo doesn’t have an oscar yet ?!? Predictions and critics all agreed that Leonardo Dicaprio has strong chance to get his Oscar with the movie he stars on : The Wolf of Wall Street.

Oscar Race Edition | The Ultimate Girls Face-Off

Awards Season : Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, SAGs Wrap-up Oh what a week !! The award season is one of my favorite. First because I am addicted to Awards shows, I love red carpets like it’s cocaine, and I adore winners speeches like it’s heroine. I could watch every single of them again and again even if it’s 3 hours long. And thanks to the Internet you can sometimes find those sort of amazing treasures :

I Declare The Golden Globes Frenzy Open ! Here’s my predictions in pictures

It’s Golden Globe weekend! I love The GG show. The GG are like the Oscar’s foreplay, unless there’s more funny jokes , thanks to Tina & Amy. Yes Tina Fey and Amy Phoeler have done the impossible – they’ve secured hosting spots for the Golden Globes for the next two years in a row. They were absolutely awesome. So because this year we have strong players and hard campaigners ( Scorsese yes I am talking bout you!) the season must be really entertaining. Lainey has been covering this campaign days after days since October and it’s pretty interesting to understand the strategy for each movies. Some studio are whoring their actors really much under the light ( American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street, Her) some doesn’t, maybe because they doesn’t need to, because they are confident that the movie will secure an award by it self ( Blue Jasmine, Gravity ). Here’s my prediction !! FILM Best Motion Picture – Drama 12 Years A Slave 12 Years A Slave is considered, almost unanimously, the best film of …

FASHION MAGAZINE JANUARY 2014 ISSUE : COVER BATTLE

The Battle of Oscar Campaigners Those covers smell a lot like Oscar campaigning to me, don’t they? Of couuuuuuuuurse they do !!!!!! Can’t you see ? All the Golden Globes nominees are here : Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams in American Hustle, Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine, Idris Elba in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club. We have to notice here that there are no Golden Globe nomination for Claire Danes in Homeland (but already won every awards last year so anyway), NO ZOE SALDANA which reminds me “What happened with this  controversial Nina Simone Biopic ???”. And none for Carey Mulligan in Inside Llewyn Davis & The Great Gatsby.  The Disney Pop Princess Battle We then get our Disney princesses battle : Britney Spears vs Miley Cyrus. The first one was making her big debut for the first of her 100 performance out of her ‘Piece of Me’ Tour. Showing us all that she STILL can try to dance again ! The other lil twat one is whoring her album as hard as possible… I am pretty sure Queen Bey …
