The 83rd Oscar’s ceremony is heading towards being the White Oscars this year.
The nominees for all the acting categories are white with no minorities included. In fact almost all the major nominations are Caucasians. The last time it happened was almost a decade ago, when all the acting nominations went to whites in the 73rd Oscar Movie Awards.
The major reason attributed to it is the lack of substantial cinema related to minorities. There were no serious movies handling the ethnic background unlike last year. As Gregg Kilday, film editor observes hardly any substantial cinema is being made irrespective of color.
The previous awards had seen serious contention by nominees Mo’Nique and Gabourey Sidibe, thanks to hard hitting movies like “Precious”. This year saw no serious or Oscar worthy movies made with an African American Background.
Much is being said about the theatrics that are part of the Oscar Nominations.
The superhero movies are no longer the same. This year the movies based on comics are not as cool as one would expect. Actually the genre seems to have lost the sparkle bringing on a repetition rather than a new concept.
It seems that the movie scene is far from getting creative. The Hollywood has used these recession years with productions praising supernatural powers; and the Marvel heroes were there to entertain our need of seeing miracles happen.
The trend however faints before the extremely repetitive story. The heroes of 2011 are far from being original. They are continuing the trend that feeds the imagination but special effects are the only things spectacular about them. What if, even they leave a lot of room for improvement?
Though Forbes lists the rankings of the top earning actresses in Hollywood on an annual basis, that list is not really accurate — an actress does not even have to be in a film to be on it.
In tallying their totals, Forbes uses the income that these actresses derive from their side deals — endorsements, commercials, and other work.
So if we were to go by this data, Angelina Jolie wins Most Overpaid by a landslide. Without even releasing a movie, Mrs. Brad Pitt made over $20 in the year 2010.
Her endorsements and residuals did better for her while she slept than most actresses make for enduring 12 hours of cramped trailers lol no nice Hollywood leather sectional sofas here and sex scenes with lecherous co stars.
A new system must be formed. If an actress is to call herself an actress, then she should be judged on her acting alone when tallying totals for the Most Overpaid.
Years ago being pregnant in Hollywood wasn’t very modern, but ever since Demi Moore has made a naked picture while pregnant, it turned into a trend. The pregnant actresses are not only more popular, they are also more beautiful and feminine.
Natalie Portman has surprised everyone as she announced that she is engaged and pregnant. The Black Swan star is expecting her first baby this summer, but yet she managed to look really nice.
Jessica Alba can fit into any beauty contest or top; but when she was pregnant, she was really blooming. According to the fashion experts, she was one of the most modern future moms to be in Hollywood.
Hollywood’s new obsession is surely all about the movies with horror notes. After the Twilight mania, this year will provoke the fans of the magical fairytale movies with two brand new potential movie hits.
The second movie that promises to be a blockbuster is the Season of the Witch. It is a movie about the medieval legend of the Crusades and its biggest star is Nicolas Cage.
He and his movie partner Ron Perlman are playing crusader knights that are going to face serious troubles by escorting a witch to a mysterious abbey. The movie was released this month and it surely deserves to be seen despite the bad reviews and the exploited plot.
The first one is of course about a werewolf based on the Grimm Brothers fairytale. The Red Riding Hood is going to be released in March this year and it promises lots of action to the viewers.
One of the first things one notices about a red carpet event are the celebrities and their fashion statement. The 2011 Golden Globes were no different. While most of the celebrities came out looking stunning and beautiful in their designers ensembles some stood out more than others.
Be it their choice of bold or unusual colors with contrasting accessories or the classic looks flaunted with panache, each one of them took the breath away. Emerald Green turned out to be the hot favorite among celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Catherine Zeta Jones and Elizabeth Moss.
Unusual colors like chocolate brown as worn by Olivia Wilde looked really stunning. The Marchesa gown with its gold rhinestones was set off beautifully by the gold shoes.
Some others who caught the eye were pregnant Natalie Portman looking ravishing in a Viktor Rolf dress; the baby pink dress was adorned by a beautiful sequined rose.
The Critics’ Choice awards have always been an indicator of the next Oscar winners, when it comes to cinema. This year the critics proved that they don’t have the same taste as the public and awarded only those actors that deserve an award.
Two were the biggest winners of the night – Colin Firth and Natalie Portman. These two actors can be characterized as very intelligent performers, for this was the main reason why they are the Critics’ Choice winners. Colin Firth has won the Best Actor Award for his performance in King’s Speech.
Actually this is the first serious award that is given to the long-deserving actor. During his long and successful career the actor was never awarded with an international award.
Natalie Portman was awarded as the Best Actress of the year for her performance in The Black Swan.
Movie world likes bad girls. The trend of placing hot actresses in this type of roles created the concept of femme fatale set out into the world to seduce and corrupt the daring hero.
These heroines have no issue as politically correct actions are concerned. They are the steel knife hidden in the proverbial velvet glove. They don’t hesitate to kill, crush hearts and destroy worlds to reach their purpose. In short they are the women all men secretly crave but fear too much to love.

3. Sean McNamara and Christian Troy
Nip and Tuck’s stars are a fine example of what is called bromance. They went through a lot, but despite that their love is eternal. They have shared anything and everything – money, work, women, etc. Even though it looks like a gay love, but we can really say that Nip and Tuck encourage the bromance trend.
