If you read my post about the gay couple being asked to leave a shopping mall due to PDA, you know I referred to that incident as one of the most ridiculous things I’ve read recently. Correction. This insane comment by Taylor is now officially the most absurd thing I’ve read.
At this year’s Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler teased Taylor Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son. Apparently, T. Swizzle can’t take a joke. The 23-year-old singer revealed to Vanity Fair that the slam at her was an act against feminism. LOL.
“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,’” – Taylor Swift
Totally cuckoo right? I’m sure this situation isn’t one where Couric would think the quote is applicable. Out of all the jokes delivered by Fey and Poehler that night, the one directed at Swift was the least offensive.
So, let me get this straight. It’s okay for her to write songs thinly-disguised as tell-alls about her various liaisons, but it’s not right for others to call her out on it. Someone needs to take themselves less seriously. Swift also goes on to say that the fact that she’s so open in her lyrics should be celebrated, not ridiculed.
“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her,” she says, “I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.” – Taylor Swift
Last night, the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place, hosted by the hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The duo made such a great team, I only wish there had been more of them! There were several very funny moments throughout the night, as well as some touching moments such Jody Foster’s acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Another of my favorite parts of the night was when Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell were presenters together. I was laughing my head off. I’m not sure what was with Tommy Lee Jones’ stank face during that portion of the evening, but whatever. I also loved when Adele won for “Skyfall” and they cut to Taylor Swift’s “less than impressed” face.
I watched the Awards show at Donovan & Brian‘s house along with some Homorazzi cast members and some of our other friends. As you may already know, we had made some predictions as to who we thought would win. I’ve included the results of those predictions within the list of winners below. I’m just going to put it out there right away, I suck at these types of predictions and totally lost. LOL.
Coming up later this month are the 70th Annual Golden Globes hosted by the hilarious besties, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Not too long ago, the duo released their first promo which had them talking in old Hollywood accents – oh those two.
In this new interview-style promo, the two talk about why they wanted to host the Golden Globes in the first place, who they are interested in seeing, and who they are hoping wins Best Picture. At first they say Avatar (not having a clue about any actual current movies), but then Fey reveals that she’d like to be the first person to win Best Picture… just her, on her own. LOL.
Poehler & Fey say that they enjoy the Golden Globes because it’s a “sloppy, loud party” where “beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the horrible, disgusting people of television.” Enjoy the funny 2-minute promo below.
A week after the Sandy Hook shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, two videos from very opposing camps hit the internet. First you have celebrities asking in a PSA, “How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more movie theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners?” Demand A Plan is a grassroots initiative to mobilize Americans to DEMAND a plan to end gun violence from Congress and President Obama. Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, Selena Gomez, John Hamm, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and many, many more lend their voices to the PSA.
Coincidentally on the same day, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre, held a live press conference. LaPierre claims the media is to blame for the shootings and not guns. He explains that the entertainment industry makes “the filthiest form of pornography,” citing violent music videos and films Natural Born Killers and American Psycho. He further goes on to say that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” His most controversial comment that has celebrities on Twitter in a tizzy is his claim that had armed guards been at Sandy Hook, innocent lives would’ve been spared that day. Check out both vids below.
As you probably know, the hilarious dynamic duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Not only are they hosting, but they’re both nominated in the same category for “Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical.” The two ladies are up against Zooey Deschanel in New Girl, Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Veep, and Lena Dunham in Girls. Any predictions as to who you think we’ll take the win?
The nominations were just released today (stay tuned for the lists which Donovan will be posting) and also the first promo starring the two hilarious hosts. Looking glamourous as you can see from the still above, Fey & Poehler decide to channel classic Hollywood accents in the promo and vow to speak in those accents for all their banter…but then they realize…
I can’t wait to see these ladies hosting together – such a perfect choice! The 70th Annual Golden Globes takes place live on Sunday, January 13 on NBC. Watch the promo video below.
This coming January 2013 is Vanity Fair‘s first ever comedy issue and it’s guest edited by Judd Apatow. For the issue, Apatow brought together his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio. There are three different covers to this issue, with four different comedians looking fabulously funny on each. I’ve included all three of them below and you can vote for which one you like best.
This is only the third time since Graydon Carter became the editor of the magazine 20 years ago that someone has been a guest editor. The last guest editor was Bono when he guest-edited the Africa issue in July of 2007. Before that, Tom Ford guest-edited a Hollywood Portfolio in March of 2006. With the comedy genre booming these days, Carter felt like it was the perfect time for such an issue and that Judd Apatow was the perfect choice for the job.
In the first cover shown above, Jim Carrey is dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph is doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell is done up like a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Check out the other two covers below, featuring comedians like Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and more.
The 2013 Golden Globes is starting to look like a ladies only affair. First, came word that Ricky Gervais had been replaced by the dynamic duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Now, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association just announced that the 2013 recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement is going to a woman.
Last year, the honor went to Robert Deniro. In fact, it’s been several years since a lady walked away with the award. Barbra Streisand was the last woman to earn the accolade back in 2000. Have any idea who it could be? Here’s a quote from the HFPA president.
“____ is a multifaceted woman that has achieved immeasurable amounts of success and will continue to do so in her career,” says Aida Takla O’Reilly, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “Her ambition, exuberance and grace have helped pave the way for budding artists in this business. She’s truly one of a kind.”
On this week’s episode of Parks & Recreation, viewers were treated to quite the surprise towards the end of the episode that left many (including myself) teary-eyed.
As you know, Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) has been dating Ben Wyatt (played by Adam Scott) for quite some time, but Ben’s career has taken him out of Pawnee temporarily putting a bit of a strain on their relationship. In this episode, Leslie decides to sign a lease for a new home in preparation for Ben’s return. When she finds out he has another opportunity and might not be coming back right away, she realizes she can’t afford to lease alone and heads back to the house to tell the agent.
Out of nowhere, Leslie is completely surprised when Ben walks in the door. From there, the following amazing scene takes place. Watch the video below!
