This fall’s TV premieres promise to have us on the edge of our seats! You’ve been waiting patiently for the resolution to the Season 6 finale cliffhanger of “The Walking Dead,” and you can’t wait to see your favorite celebrities strut their stuff on “Dancing with the Stars.” Well, your wait is almost over! Here are highlights of what’s to come.
The film that may finally get Leonardo DiCaprio his Oscar is up for several Oscars itself – a dozen, in fact, including best picture. DiCaprio’s performance is just one of several aspects that make The Revenant not only a must-see, but also an award contender.
For those who haven’t seen it for themselves yet – or for all those movie-goes who wondered, “Who is that guy? What have I seen him in before?” – here’s a rundown to prep you for the Oscars.
The Oscars are almost here and on everyone’s mind is this: Will it finally be Leonardo DiCaprio’s year?
With his raw and stunning performance in The Revenant, plus a diverse resume that includes The Wolf of Wall Street, The Great Gatsby, Django Unchained, Inception, Catch Me If You Can, and, yes, Titanic, DiCaprio has secured himself a reputation as one of Hollywood’s greats.
And we can’t get enough of him. When we’re not watching his movies, we’re following him across the covers and pages of our favorite magazines, catching every glimpse into the superstar’s life.
According to IMDB, DiCaprio has been on a magazine cover 113 times, and has been interviewed and written about in Entertainment Weekly, Time, GQ, Rolling Stone, People, Us, American Cinematographer, Esquire, TV Guide, Vanity Fair and more. And he’s been in plenty of international magazines, too.
Clearly, he’s got our attention and we’ll all be waiting to hear the verdict on February 28th.
But no matter what happens at this year’s Oscars, we’ll still love Leo for all that he is and all that he’s given us. Please join me in an ode to Mr. DiCaprio, not through verse, but through gifs.
Oh, Leo. With Titanic, you splashed onto the scene. One flip of your hair was all it took to make us fall in love with you.
But like an iceberg, your performance in Titanic was just the tip of your stunning career. You are truly a man of many hats.
Performance after performance, you’ve showed us what it’s like to fly.
You’ve made us laugh
You’ve made us cry
We’ve felt ALL the feels.
You’ve got the moves.
And no one can say “white cake” quite like you.
So here’s to you, Leo.
You do you, and never quit.
The CMA Awards Nominations were just announced, and the results are pretty exciting! While the nominations are none too surprising, as country music favorites like Keith Urban did well, we are excited to see who has what it takes to secure the winning title come summer. With all of the talent this year, the next CMA Awards concert certainly will be a fantastic show! Whether you own a pair of cowboy boots and listen to country music like it’s your second job or are a casual listener who simply likes to stay in the know, check out our summary of the CMA Awards nominations results.
Miranda Lambert stole the show and matched her previous record this year with nine nominations. She takes home nominations for Album of the Year for Platinum, Entertainer for the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Music Video of the Year for Automatic, Music Video of the Year for Somethin’ Bad, Musical Event of the Year for Somethin’ Bad, Musical Event of the Year for We Were Us, Single of the Year for Automatic, and Song of the Year for Automatic.
Dierks Bentley didn’t do too shabby either by bringing home five nominations this year. He is up for winning Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for Riser, Single of the Year, Song of the Year for I Hold On, and Music Video of the Year.
Not surprisingly, Keith Urban also did pretty well. He received four nominations, which include Album of the Year for Fuse, Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year for We Were Us.
Eric Church did well, too, with four nominations. We shall see if he brings home the winning titles for Album of the Year for The Outsiders, Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year for Give Me Back My Hometown, and Song of the Year for Give Me Back My Hometown.
All four of these illustrious artists are up for Album of the Year. Who do you think deserves to win?
The recent birth and naming of Christina Aguilera’s daughter Summer Rain, presumably inspired by watching the weather forecast, has motivated us at Magazines.com to come up with a list of the most unusual celebrity baby names in Hollywood. While a name like North West has already had its fair share of attention in the news, there are plenty of other one-of-a-kind baby names coming out of Hollywood.
While it might be every little boy’s dream to become a pirate, Pirate Houseman Davis gets to live out this fantasy every day – for the rest of his life. If he ever dresses as a pirate for Halloween, he’s already a step ahead of other swashbuckling, hook-handed trick-or-treaters, and he can thank parents Jonathan and Deven Davis for this foresight.
While there is certainly nothing wrong with “Harper,” which is a great name, having a middle name that can be transcribed as a numerical figure pretty much makes up for having a cool first name. The Beckhams decided to name daughter Harper Seven Beckham after the father’s football jersey number. Go figure.
Michael Jackson apparently believed that “blanket” was the perfect name for his newborn son. Perhaps he looked at his child covered up in a comfy blanket and was hit by inspiration. Who really knows?
Actress and musician Shannyn Sossamon and Dallas Clayton thought that a unique first or middle name alone was not enough. Little Audio Science will never have to share a name with anyone else in school – or in any other situation.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin of Coldplay named their baby girl after a piece of fruit. While apples are more reminiscent of the produce section than a little girl, little Apple’s parents definitely showed their creative sides when naming their daughter.
Which name do you think is the worst? Are there any other weird celebrity baby names that deserve a spot on our list?
The success of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards favored cable TV over Netflix in surprising levels – despite the recent success of Netflix shows like House of Cards, shows on cable TV took the lion’s share of awards. While this year’s ceremony was none too surprising when all is said and done, a few memorable moments, certain shows that swept the awards table, and a humorous presentation by Seth Meyers, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Kimmel, and Weird Al Yankovic made this a successful and entertaining Emmys.
The most moving moment of the ceremony was the tribute to Robin Williams. His good friend and actor Billy Crystal presented the memorial. Crystal called Robin the “greatest friend you could ever imagine.” His insightful comment that “it’s very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives” struck a chord in the audience.
Touching moments also included tributes to Maya Angelou and Shirley Temple, who were laid to rest during the past year. Sara Bareilles sang a beautiful version of Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile” during the tributes.
As far as awards go, Breaking Bad and Modern Family stole the show. Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad took home a whopping five awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Brian Cranston (Walter White), Outstanding Supporting Drama Actor in a Drama Series for Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Anna Gunn (Skyler White), and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. Modern Family secured wins in Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy), and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.
Not surprisingly, the talented actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, most famous for her roles in Seinfeld and Arrested Development, received an award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her show Veep.
The Big Bang Theory, The Amazing Race, and Mom also took home awards.
If you had to choose the Emmy winners, who would you give the awards to for Best Drama, Best Comedy, Best Outstanding Actor, and Best Outstanding Actress? Let us know your thoughts!
