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.
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.
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.
Celebrities are really doing what they can with the platform they have to encourage people to vote…for Barack Obama. Just yesterday, I posted about a video that Cher and Kathy Griffin did educating voters on why voting for Mitt Romney is the worst idea ever.
In this new video, Will Ferrell says he’ll do anything to get people to vote… literally anything. He’ll eat garbage or underwear, punch himself in the face – you name it, he’ll do it. That’s how important it is that everyone votes. At the end of the video, he encourages people to vote for Barack Obama as well.
Watch the funny video below to learn what ridiculous things Ferrell says he’ll do in order to get you to vote.
The Campaign, starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifiankis, hits theatres today. A comedic tale about the dirty side of American politics, it sure as hell doesn’t get my vote. This is another case of tired actors playing the same characters we always see while using vulgarity and obscenity versus intelligence and wit to generate humour. It’s played out.
The film follows two rival politicians, incumbent Camden Brady (Ferrell) and newcomer Martin Huggins (Galifianakis) who are trying to win an election to represent their North Carolina district in the United States House of Representatives. Huggins is chosen as a pawn by two extremely wealthy brothers looking to sell part of the state to China to import Chinese labourers and save on shipping costs.
Last night on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Will Ferrell stopped by to promote his new movie, The Campaign. Unfortunately, he was too choked up about the “Robsten” breakup that it really affected him during the interview. He just couldn’t believe this could happen to a couple that was so in love and is so worried about what will happen to the Twilight franchise as a result. Truth be told, I’m quite curious to know how all the red carpet premieres will play out in the fall after all of this public drama.
Watch the segment below if you want a good laugh, courtesy of Will Ferrell. Enjoy!
The first trailers for ‘Anchorman: The Legend Continues‘ have just been released and they promise that the film will make you cream your pants.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) & Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) & Champ Kind (David Koechner) of San Diego’s Channel 4 News Team are back together again for this hilarious-looking sequel. “Hey America, did you miss my hot breath in your ear?”, asks Will Ferrell in one of the teaser trailers.
I’ve included the two different teasers that have been released below. In both, Steve Carell’s character struggles to fit in with the others and doesn’t quite get the idea of what he’s supposed to be doing. Love him. Enjoy the videos below, but be prepared to wait until 2013 before this hits theatres.
Last night, there were two hilarious musical segments on two different “Jimmy” late night shows that I thought were worth sharing with you for a good laugh.
The first is a parody music video featuring Carrie Underwood, who was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. In the clip, she’s has a duet in a music video with Kimmel called “Before He Freaks,” which was described as the sequel to her “Before He Cheats” song. As evident by the bat she’s holding in the picture above, Underwood goes Britney Spears on Kimmel’s car. It’s quite amusing.
In the second clip, Will Ferrell, who is hosting SNL this coming Saturday, performs a song called “Tight Pants” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. He sings “Everybody’s looking at my tight pants, I got my tight pants, I got my tight pants on. I’m the only guy in town with tight pants, I got my tight pants, I got my tight pants on.” Just when Ferrell thought tight pants was his thing, Fallon comes out and sings a verse about his own tight pants…and he is not having it. Ferrell says, “Now you listen to me, you sick son of a bitch. I don’t know who you are, or where you came from, but I’m the only one in this town that can wear tight pants. You got it? I will end you. Don’t wake the snake. Sssssssss!” LOL. Watch the hilarity below.
