The 66th Golden Globe Winners are…

12 01 2009

Talk about Slam dunk… all the nomination of the Slumdog Millionaire won and garnered 4 Golden Globes including the Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay in a Drama Film. I knew this film is going to win… The story is really good guys… better watch this film… For me if the film won the best picture, best screen play, and best director… it is a sure excellent film… I don’t rely on the actors… I rely on the people behind a film… Slumdog Millionaire is a slamming film of a  in call center agent in India who is one question away in taking the grand prize in who wants to be a millionaire. When the show takes a brake, he was accused of cheating. He is not a genius so he must have cheated… right… wrong… The film explained how Jamal is able to know the answers to the questions and the journey he went through to know the answers. I have never raved about a film ever since “Life is Beautiful”. The film is a revelation if all the people trying to join is game shows are all really after the money or something else more important like finding back a lost love?

A big win also is Kate Winslet for not only winning the Best Actress… she also won Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Film for playing a role in Revolutionary Road and The Reader. After consistently not winning awards in the past, she comes back with a vengeance proving that she is a THE Best Actress this year. Beating over veteran actresses like Meryl Steep and Marissa Tomei. I watched Revolutionary Road and she is indeed a brilliant actress in that film. I haven’t watched The Reader, maybe if I have some time, I will watch it.

Ellen DeGenres the new CoverGirl

17 09 2008


Ellen DeGeneres


Yep… you heard it right… Ellen DeGeneres. The Emmy-winning daytime queen has signed on as the latest face of CoverGirl Cosmetics and will star in a new print and commercial ad campaign that’s rolling out in January.

Check out this photo where she prepares for the photo shoot. I think CoverGirl did a clever choice of selecting Ellen. And the new image of CoverGirl. CoverGirl is known to represent fun and bubbly models and Ellen will do a good justice in exuding this theme.  With a fun and playful attitude, Ellen will surely rock CoverGirl.
