If I could attend any awards show, it’s hands down the Golden Globes. Not only is it the most star-studded, but you can eat and drink while pretending to be interested in some of the acceptance speeches ;) Admit it, some of them are major snoozefests. Too bad Meryl Streep couldn’t win every category. Her speeches are always hilariously witty.
Going into tonight’s ceremony, Lincoln has the most nominations with seven. Tied in second are Argo and Django Unchained. On the television front, Game Change is on top with five nominations, with Homeland in second with four nominations. Who will be the big winner when all is said and done?
A few of us have shared our predictions in each category. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m the reigning champ amongst the Homorazzi crew. Last year, I predicted the most correctly. That being said, Adam was numero uno for our recent Emmy predictions. Who’ll win this time? Check out all our choices below.
As we head into darker, colder weather now that fall is knocking at the door, we’ll likely find ourselves indoors more than usual. Some will suffer from S.A.D., others may not be as motivated as usual with the sudden lack of sunshine.
With that, I thought I’d spend some time highlighting my Top 5 favorite comfort foods. Perhaps it’s something to munch on while watching Britney Spears on The X Factor. Maybe it’s your favorite combo from a fast food restaurant that you grab on the go, while dressed in unsuspecting clothes so no one recognizes you, of course. Whatever your “fix” is for your comfort food, I invite you to share below in the comments.

This past week, Fred Segal Santa Monica hosted the launch of a new eco-friendly apparel & accessories boutique called ‘A Lot To Say‘. Yours truly was lucky enough to attend the festive soiree, which was complete with carolers from the L.A. Gay Mens Chorus, wine, appetizers, amazing sweets and Andrew Keegan (who played Joey Donner from “10 Things I Hate About You“).
The event was quaint, but the message behind the clothing line is anything but. Through the sale of t shirts, towels, underwear, yoga mats, umbrellas, iPad cases, dog leashes and a whole slew of other products, A Lot To Say is able to raise awareness and profits for causes such as Stand Up To Cancer, Animal Rescue Foundation and Global Green in a fashionable and eco-friendly way.
This past weekend while in Vegas for cast member Dan‘s and our other friend Dan’s birthdays, I took a break from the gaggle of gays to see The Wynn‘s resident show, La Rêve. File this show under: ‘Amazing.’ Also see: ‘Holy Hell I Need to go to the Gym More.’ I’m not kidding when I say La Rêve was one of the coolest, most moving and inspirational things I’ve seen.
I’m not entirely sure what the plot of the story was, (could be due to the bottomless champagne our personal waitress provided), but from what I gather the show follows the strange and beautiful dream of a young girl in love. It’s hard to describe without writing verbatim everything that goes on, so think of it as a combination of Alice in Wonderland, The Cell and Cirque Du Soleil. Add water, fire, doves, synchronized swimming, aerial acrobatics and a disappearing floor and you have one fantastic show.
Since the majority of the cast members on Homorazzi are Canadians, we thought we’d share each of our plans to celebrate our nation’s birthday (from where ever we are in the world). As usual, we’re all over the place this weekend.
Certainly, Vancouver has gone through it’s highs and lows over the past couple years. Last year, the Olympics brought a level of togetherness and patriotism that I had never experienced before with my fellow Canadians. The Canada Day that followed also reached a whole new level in terms of the vibe and electricity in the city. Unfortunately, our city’s global reputation recently received a big black eye as a result of the idiotic rioters that decided to trash the city after the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup. It was a disgusting side of humanity I never wish to see again. With that said, something positive did come out of it. The next day, the city came together to clean up the mess and attempt to show what it means to be a true Canadian/Vancouverite to the rest of the world that had us under a spotlight. We picked up the pieces and I’d like to think we grew stronger as a result.
Now, what does each cast member have planned for the occasion? Find out below.
I’ve said it before, but one of the great things about living in LA is that there are always awesome shows that sometimes don’t make it to other cities, like the Prince concert I went to last weekend. Have you ever wondered what it feels like to stand in purple rain? Well, I know, and it’s AH-MAZ-ING.
The concert was pretty great, starting from the stage shaped like the Prince symbol to the purple confetti that shot into the crowd at the end of ‘Purple Rain.’ Not to mention the incredibly interesting concert goers – Inglewood has some good people watching if you’re ever here. I’m not the biggest Prince fan, so I don’t completely remember every single song he sung, but I recognized the greats – Little Red Corvette, I Would Die 4 U, 1999, I wanna Be Your Lover, Black Sweat (loved this!!!), My Name is Prince and When Doves Cry – and they were great.
Prince had some help on the drums from Sheila E, who came out and performed ‘Glamorous Life’ at the beginning of the concert and then stayed around and drummed on her rhinestone-encrusted drum set. Her weave was lookin’ good and I wanted to steal her heels. Nicole Scherzinger also made an appearance and sang a song. Not sure what it was because she sound like a…well, she didn’t sound good, but she was there. During her song with Prince some people from the crowd got to go on stage and dance. I think I even saw Dr. Bailey from ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ on stage.
This past weekend, my friend Dan and I headed over to Ultra Suede in WEHO to attend Paul Nicholl’s weekly Friday night party, Hype. Nicki Minaj was going to be there and after going to Hype the weekend prior to see Kelly Rowland and Luciana, I figured it would be another awesome evening. Little did I know what was in store…
We showed up to UltraSuede around 9pm and were treated to a performance by Ms. Candis Cayne. She opened her act with ‘Move’ by Dream Girls and ended with Lady Gaga’s latest… thing ‘Judas.’ I’m really wanting a break from Lady G right now, but Candis’s performance actually made me enjoy the song more than I thought I did – maybe it was her backup dancers and their amazing legs that I was into, but the song started to grow on me. But I digress. Candis was great and entertained the crowd with some hair whipping and a fan that even Beyonce’s wig would be jealous of.
Last night, Logo aired the fourth annual NewNowNext Awards in glittery fashion. James Van Der Beek hosted the irreverent awards show honoring everything fantastical in pop culture and tomorrow’s next big things. This year the awards returned back to Los Angeles but at a new venue- the Avalon. I’ve been to the venue numerous times, mostly to dance my butt off at Tigerheat. It was definitely odd to go during daylight at last Thursday’s taping to cover the red carpet and interview this years nominees and presenters. Special shout out goes to Logo for giving Alex and I such a great spot on the red carpet.
In addition to the regular award categories, this year’s ceremony honored Lady Gaga with the “Always Next, Forever Now Award“. Definitely fitting since, the Fame Monster made her television debut on the NewNowNext Awards years ago. In between awards, the raucous crowd were entertained by wicked performances by Robyn, Panic! at the Disco, Oh Land and Wynter Gordon. The show also featured presenters including by Adam Lambert, Paula Abdul, Carmen Electra, Joey McIntyre (New Kids on the Block), A.J. McLean (Backstreet Boys), Jonathan Knight (New Kids on the Block), Brittany Snow (“Harry’s Law”), Busy Phillips (“Cougar Town”), Perez Hilton, Aubrey O’Day (“All About Aubrey”), Keegan Allen and Torry DeVitto (“Pretty Little Liars”), RuPaul, George Kotsiopolous (“Fashion Police”), Kim Coles, Lisa Lampanelli, Sara Rue (“Shedding for the Wedding”), Gretchen Rossi (“The Real Housewives of Orange County”), Lisa Vanderpump (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”) and Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge (“The Fabulous Beekman Boys”). Special appearances from the evening included: Johnny Weir, RuPaul, guest DJ and recording artists Neon Hitch, the queens of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Jessica & Hunter and Drew Droege (“Chloe”).
