Sean Hayes And James Corden Play Bieber On Big Floor Piano

Did you ever watch the movie Big and wish you could play a giant floor piano just like Tom Hanks?! I know I did!

TV-star Sean Hayes ( Will & Grace, etc) visited the Late Late Show a few days ago and did just that with host James Corden.

With a more modern twist though, by playing Justin Bieber’s latest hit Sorry.
Well, I’m not sorry to have seen that!

Miley Cyrus To Star In New Woody Allen Series

I’d never thought of Miley Cyrus and Woody Allen as collegues. But apparently they will be just that!

Under a picture of Allen, Miley Cyrus has let her Instagram followers know that she’s “stoked” to be in his upcoming TV series taking place in the 1960’s. More exactly, she wrote:

Fuck yeah ! Stoked to be in Woody Allens first series!!!!! I had claimed 2016 to be my year of “chillin the fuck out” but next to my bed for a few years now has been this portrait of W.A. & I was looking into his eyes when I got the call to be apart of the cast and work alongside the bad a$$ Elaine May & da dude himself! 1960zzzz here I cummmmm ?????

Shooting starts in a couple of months, so when exactly the show will premiere is still unknown. But it will be available via Amazon Prime.

I love me some Woody Allen, so I can’t say I’m not intersted in the result!
Miley seems like an unusual choice, but she could be great.

Celebrities Boycott Oscars

Not all invited to the 88th Academy Awards in February will be showing up.

A number of celebrities have now planned to boycott the Oscars due to its lack of diversity.

Only white movie people were nominated this year, something that is the rule rather than the exception. Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith and director Spike Lee are two of those who will not attent the event.

On her Facebook page Jada Pinkett-Smith posted a video yesterday explaining her stance on the issue: “Begging for acknowledgment or even asking diminishes dignity and diminishes power. And we are a dignified people, and we are powerful.”

Jada’s husband Will Smith was not nominated for an Oscar this year, but did get an Golden Globe nomination for his role in Concussion. People are speculating whether or not it’s the reason for her boycott, but whatever it may be, it can still be a good message to send the Academy and people watching.

Legendary Actor Alan Rickman Dead

I just read this five minutes ago and I can’t even write this properly. It seems so surreal.

One of my favourite actors, Alan Rickman, has passed away. Just a few days after David Bowie died from cancer aged 69, Alan Rickman does the same. Cancer. 69.

His voice was the most special, deep, exhilarating voice there was. A voice that led to giggly discussions with family and friends (all female). But it was far from the only thing that made him special.

Alan Rickman was an absolutely brilliant actor. One of the very best. He’s portrayals were so believable, so true. Just like Bowie, he seemed immortal.

He was Colonel Brandon quietly longing for his Marianne in Sense & Sensibility, he was the husband with the wandering eye in Love Actually, he was the creepiest of villains as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood, he was Severus Snape in Harry Potter. Which by the way, only Alan Rickman could have done as great. He was perfect at playing both frightening and emotionally fragile at the same time. He was brilliant both on the big screen and on stage.

I can’t understand that I’m not going to see Alan Rickman in anything new anymore. I’m shedding a tear. And take a look at my movie collection. There he can live on forever.

Rest In Peace Alan Rickman.

Golden Globes 2016 – Best Dresses

I’ve gone through the dresses that appeared on the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday now. It’s after all a yearly tradition.

It was tough to narrow it down, but I’ve got ten favourites. By the way, it won’t be obvious based off of my choices, but sleek nude dresses and capes seemed to be popular this year. And bright colours. Anyway, let’s go:

Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista Valli (doing an Angelina Jolie with her leg):

Zendaya in Marchesa:

Lady Gaga in Atelier Versace:

Jada Pinkett-Smith in Atelier Versace:

Amber Heard in Gucci:

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior (mostly because of its interesting design):

Gina Rodriguez in Zac Posen:

Emmy Rossum in Giorgio Armani Privé (because it’s simple yet gorgeous):

Julianne Moore in Tom Ford:

Amy Adams in Versace:

Golden Globes 2016 – Best Moments

So guys, I’ve viewed the Golden Globes now and have some videos to share with you.

Host Ricky Gervais was playing his part to a tee, being the most uninterested and bored host ever (perhaps?). While I didn’t find him as funny as previously, he still made me laugh, being his rude and provocative self. Don’t come to the Globes expecting Ricky to be kind to you!

The Internet had a field day with Leonardo DiCaprio’s reaction when Lady Gaga walked passed him to get her Globe. I have no idea what went through his mind, but it looks funny:

Here’s her speech. She forgot to mention her fiancée, which some love to highlight, but whoopdidoo.

Here’s Leo’s speech for when he won for best actor in a motion picture. One of the most important speeches of the night, raising awareness for how indigenous people are treated:

Also beatiful speech by Denzel Washington when receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award:

Taraji P Henson’s speech after having handed out cookies to some of her collegues (due to her name in the hit show Empire), showing she’s a bad ass woman:

Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence being the best friends that they are and acting silly, while making me want to join them. Followed by Matt Damon’s speech.

Sylvester Stallone’s speech when winning a Globe for the first time since the 70’s. Being one cool mumbler:

For more videos, check the Tube!

All in all it looked like a long, but pretty fun affair.

My favourite dresses will be up tomorrow!
