2014-15-galeca-dorian-awards

The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA) is like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association but just queer. The LGBT group just revealed the winners at their annual Dorian Awards, honoring the best in television and the movies. I’m proud to say that I’m one of the over 100 critics and entertainment journalists associated.

For the past two years, GALECA’s choice for Best Film (12 Years A Slave, Argo) has gone on to win the Oscar. Will this year’s winner Boyhood do that same? I have a feeling it might. Taking the honors for Best Actor and Best Actress are recent Golden Globes winners Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore respectively. Over on the television front, Amazon’s Transparent was the big winner, taking home five awards including Best Series.

In addition to the typical serious categories, the Dorians honor the campiest films and shows as well. Into The Woods and Jane The Virgin (which I love) out-camped the competition. The association also highlights quality shows that deserve more recognition. Pride and HBO’s Getting On were honored in the movie and television category respectively. Check out all the winners below.

fifth-harmony-worth-it

The saxophone has made a really big comeback in recent years. The much-maligned instrument synonymous with Kenny G during the late 80s and 90s was resurrected thanks to smash hits “Talk Dirty” and “Problem” by Jason DeRulo and Ariana Grande respectively. Fifth Harmony is the latest act to jump on the sax bandwagon.

Worth It” is another cut off their forthcoming debut album Reflection due out February 3. The ladies enlist Kid Ink for a couple of rap interludes. Like “Bo$$,” their latest exudes confidence and girl power. Plenty of swagger here. Check it out below.

PUMP underwear has outdone themselves with their latest model. Alejandro González fills out the brand’s Microshock Boxer and Spring Fling Joggers quite nicely. Don’t think there’s any special Justin Bieber-like Photoshop effects utilized here ;)

Photographer Adrian C. Martin snaps the handsome Spanish model in the very sensual shoot. Check out more eye-pleasing visuals below.

Madonna fell victim to major leakage problems weeks ago, forcing her label to move up the release date of her 13th studio album. With so many of her demos surfacing online, many wondered which, if any of them, would make the cut. The wait is over.

The official track list has been unveiled. Rebel Heart will include 19 tracks featuring some guest vocals from Nicki Minaj, NAS and Mike Tyson. Yup, you read that right. The former boxing champ pops up on the track “Iconic” with Chance The Rapper. Check out the other tracks to make the final cut below.

jennifer-aniston-ellen-oscar-snub

The 45-year-old actress used a tactic that’s worked for so many before her. Play against type and look as unglamorous as possible for an indie film. It appeared it was working. All the stars were lined up for Jennifer Aniston to nab her first Oscar nomination. She scored SAG and Golden Globe nods and earned rave reviews from major critics.

However, when the Academy Awards revealed their nominations last week, Aniston’s name was missing from the Best Actress category. Marion Cotillard came out of nowhere to snag her presumed spot. Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Moore, who made the Final 5, both sent messages to Aniston expressing their sympathy.

The former Friends star opens up more about her Oscar snub with her good friend Ellen DeGeneres. Watch her joke about it below, along with tossing several cakes at Ellen’s audience members and why she grabbed Kate Hudson’s butt on the Golden Globes red carpet.

Whitney Scores Big Ratings For Lifetime

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Whitney Houston’s family who publicly condemned the film may have not watched Whitney, but millions of others did. The Lifetime movie attracted about 4.5 million viewers on Saturday night. It handily beat recent biopics about Aaliyah, Elizabeth Taylor and Anna Nicole Smith that aired on the network.

Most people who tuned in to catch Angela Bassett’s directorial debut stuck around for most of the evening. An hour-long interview with Bobby Brown generated 4.1 million viewers and Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances hosted by Clive Davis drew 3.2 million viewers. Speaking of Clive, he wasn’t portrayed in the most flattering light in the film. I wonder how he feels about that.

Frank Ocean Pays Tribute To Aaliyah With Cover

In: Donovan, Music

Aaliyah would’ve celebrated her 36th birthday last week on January 16. “At Your Best (You Are Love)” was originally recorded by The Isley Brothers in the 1970s. Aaliyah then covered it for her debut album, releasing it as her second single. Though it’s not an Aaliyah original, it’s safe to assume Frank Ocean recorded the track as a tribute to the late R&B singer given it’s proximity to her birthday.

Ocean’s take on the soulful ballad, which he titled “You Are Luhh” on tumbler, is absolutely divine. His buttery falsetto is pure money as he emotionally belts out some of the lyrics. Hopefully, Frank is prepping his sophomore album. I’m craving more new music after hearing this beautiful rendition. Give it a listen below.

During the show’s winter hiatus, Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein ad campaign launched. Naturally, Saturday Night Live parodied the much-mocked ads on its first show in 2015. They would’ve been stupid if they let this golden opportunity slip away.

Kate McKinnon who’s brilliantly impersonated The Biebs before, once again does a stellar job. Cecily Strong joins in on the action to play blond model Lara Stone featured in the campaign. Watch the hilarious spoof below which addresses Justin’s reportedly enlarged photoshopped bulge.
