3 Vintage Star Pictures That Have Cool Written All Over Them

Looking at old photos of celebrities and stars is a lot of fun and brings back many images of days gone by.  Check these out and take a sentimental journey back in time. You will find some of your favorite stars from the 70s and 80s and others from the 50s. Come join us and just have fun!

These vintage cool photos are food for poster lovers. Each one of these pics can be easily used as a blownup poster that would rock any office or room. This Marilyn picture you see here, is one of many that belong on every person’s bucket list for room posters. It’s on mine, that’s for sure.

1955 Photoshoot With Marilyn And Cute Pup

This photograph was taken by Milton H. Green in 1955 for a Look Magazine’s editorial on Oriental Gowns.  The photograph was shot at his New York studio on March 28, 1955, along with this precious Pekinese puppy.

The staging area is also wonderful!  You can see an embroidered ottoman, a folding dressing screen, and an abundance of cushions.  He posed her dressed in an Oriental-style black robe while snuggling with the puppy.

Frank Sinatra gave Marilyn a gift because she loved animals. The gift was an adorable white fluffy dog named Mafia Honey, or Maf for short.  It was meant as a tongue-in-cheek gesture because of his alleged ties to the mafia!

Freddie Mercury And His Partner Jim Hutton, 1985

The world just was not the same after Freddie Mercury passed away from complications caused by AIDS in 1991.  Jim Hutton lived with Freddie over the last six years of his life.  He was there for Freddie through his illness up to the last day when he passed.

Jim Hutton was a hairdresser in his hometown in County Carlow, Ireland before ever meeting Mercury.  Shortly after they started dating, Hutton lived with Mercury in his Garden Lodge home where they stayed together until Mercury’s death.

Their relationship was long before anyone recognized same-sex marriage.  Although they were never officially married, they both wore wedding bands to show their devotion to each other.  Freddie Mercury died wearing his wedding band.

Stevie Nicks, A True Iconic Bohemian Beauty, 1970s

Gorgeous Stevie Nicks was the lead of Fleetwood Mac and the queen of rock in the 70s.  While Fleetwood Mac was constantly topping the charts, her personal life was a train wreck.

Between spending tons of money and partying, things got quickly out of control.  She said that during the recording of the Rumors album, she would carry a gram of cocaine in her boot.

Even though she tried to fight her cocaine addiction problem, it escalated during the 70s bringing turmoil and stress to the band.  At one point she had a hopeless affair with drummer Mick Fleetwood that was continually fueled by drugs.

In 1986, she got the scare of her life when a surgeon told her she had a very dangerous, large hole in her nose. He warned her that so much as one more hit of cocaine could be her last.

That hole in her nose could cause her brain to hemorrhage. That was enough to convince her to get into rehab.  That was her wake up call!  To the here and now, Fleetwood Mack is back up and on tour!

Golden Globes 2019: “Bohemian Rhapsody” Wins ‘Best Drama’

“Bohemian Rhapsody” won best drama, and its star, Rami Malek, won best actor at the Golden Globes on Sunday night; “Green Book” took home three awards, including best movie, musical or comedy; and Glenn Close won best actress in a drama, an award many expected to go to Lady Gaga.

TV stars Sandra Oh (from BBC America’s “Killing Eve”) and Andy Samberg (NBC’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) delivered capably, albeit unspectacularly, as co-hosts. Overall, the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on NBC lacked the boozy, loosey-goosey tension of its renowned past with a sense of artificially overcompensating a corrective course on diversity and equal rights.

It was a night of major upsets in Los Angeles, where “Green Book”, considered a divisive road movie about race relations, emerged as the biggest winner at the 76th Gold Globe Awards on Sunday, as it took home three trophies, including best comedy. “Bohemian Rhapsody” was named best drama, leaving “A Star Is Born”, the expected front-runner, with only the Globe for best song.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” the blockbuster Freddie Mercury biopic, also won two Globes, with Rami Malek beating Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”) for best actor. “Thank you for your courage in embracing your true self,” Graham King, a “Bohemian Rhapsody” producer, said of Mercury in collecting the best drama Globe.

“We’re still living in divided times,” said Peter Farrelly, who directed “Green Book”. “This story, when I heard it, gave me hope.” “Green Book” also won best screenplay and best supporting actor, which went to Ahershala Ali, who plays an erudite pianist in the film.

Among other upsets, veteran actress Glenn Close beat out favorite Lady Gaga for best actress. Gaga was expected to win for “A Star Is Born”, however, Close won the gong. A shocked Close, who won for “The Wife”, used the platform to tell women, “We have to find personal fulfillment.” Actresses in the ballroom subsequently jumped to their feet. “We have to follow our dreams.”

Olivia Colman won best actress in a comedy or musical for her work in “The Favourite,” a pitch-black comedy about royal schemers. Best actor in a comedy or musical went to Christian Bale, who portrayed the former vice president Dick Cheney in “Vice”. “Thank you, Satan, for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” Bale said in accepting the award.

The best actor in a TV drama award went to Richard Madden, star of Netflix’s action-packed counterterrorism thriller, “Bodyguard”. For TV comedies, Rachel Brosnahan won best actress for Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, and Michael Douglas won best actor for Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method”.

In the television categories, Golden Globes went to FX’s “The Americans” (best drama); Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method” (best comedy); and FX’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (best limited series).

Jeff Bridges collected the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in film, and Carol Burnett accepted a new award, named after her, for career achievement in television.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group behind the awards has with a long history of voting idiosyncrasies, perhaps due to the fact it has only 88 people who cast ballots for the awards. The full list of winners can be seen here.

Marvel and DC Characters in Real Life

Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds has had his misses, but he also had his hit in 2016.  He bombed miserably with The Green Lantern as well as his first Deadpool attempt in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Deadpool made up for all that, becoming the highest- grossing rated R movie ever.  Guardians of the Galaxy was funny, but Deadpool raised the bar.

Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

While Green Lantern was a box office flop, Ryan Reynolds can be thankful for the movie for one reason; meeting Blake Lively on set.  In 2012, the couple married and currently, have two daughters.  Blake Lively has also gone on to some box-office smashes like Café Society and The Age of Adaline.

UPDATED: The Winners At The 70th Emmy Awards

UPDATE 18/09/2018: The list of winners at the 2018 Emmy Awards has now been added to the end of this post.

Predictions abound for the 70th iteration of the Emmy’s with several of television’s most celebrated shows set for a big night at the Television Academy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, September 17, 2018.

“This year’s nominations continue to represent increased diversity and inclusion in front of the camera,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington. “And, there is a wealth of new and returning programs that reflect so many of today’s critical issues.”

Among all shows up for awards, Game Of Thrones has the most nominations (22) in all categories, followed by Saturday Night Live (21) and Westworld (21). Leading the nominations in totals by platform are Netflix (112), HBO (108) and NBC (78). With over a hundred awards on offer, we’ll take our pics among the contenders for the Drama Series category’s main awards.

Outstanding Drama Series

The award for the best drama series seems like a two horse raise between downtrodden handmaidens and the dragon-riding royalty of Westeros. With Game of Thrones famously absent from last year’s awards, the Handmaid’s Tale swooped in to collect the gong. This year, the two go head-to-head. Critics are predicting a win for the Hulu drama to repeat the feat again this year.

Lead Actor In A Drama Series

It looks to be a threepeat for actor Sterling K. Brown. The This Is Us star comes in having won consecutive awards for The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us. With his fictional father, Ron Cephas Jones, winning the Guest-Actor award in a stunning upset this past weekend, it means voters have been paying attention to the storyline. Realistically, Brown’s main threat is his co-star and fictional adopted father, Milo Ventimiglia, who perhaps had a more emphatic role this past season.

Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Likewise, except a repeat for Elisabeth Moss to win this year’s gong. The Handmaid’s Tale star’s compelling portrayal in the series seems impossible to beat, with the show’s success due in large part to the star’s series-carrying performance. Having been overlooked for her past work on Mad Men, Moss is a shoe-in for this year’s award once again.

Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

Last year’s winner, John Lithgow for The Crown, isn’t in the running this year, which leaves the field wide open. Both Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage can consider themselves contenders for their roles on Game of Thrones. Dinklage already having two previous wins and Coster-Waldau being tasked with the season’s most poignant moments. However, Matt Smith for his perfectly petty and occasionally sympathetic portrayal as Prince Philip in The Crown is apparently tipped to win.

Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

The Handmaid’s Tale has three nominees this award, making up it a favorite to win this award. Interestingly the show has yet to lose an acting category in which it has been nominated. The real question is not if but who among its nominees will win. Samira Wiley was awarded this year’s Guest Actress award, just as Alexis Bedel, who won last year’s Guest Actress prize, is now a season regular and up for a Supporting Actress award. Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski who also star in the show are nominated. Dowd might have been the early favorite, however, as the season progressed it was Strahovski who really stole the show, having previously worked on both Chuck and Dexter.

As for the Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series awards, there’s little to separate between Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This Is Us.

“It’s been another record-breaking year with more than 9,100 entries in 122 unique categories for the initial nomination round of voting,” said Washington. “The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge while allowing last season’s break-through programs to thrive.”

Behind-The-Scenes Photos Which Ruin The Magic

Movies have always played a big role during times of negative events such as silent films during the Great Depression and countless uplifting films during World War II.  Everyone at some time or another will watch movies just to relax, unwind, and forget their troubles.  Even people who might not be movie enthusiasts will lose themselves in a good movie.

Movies come in so many different genres that it’s impossible not to be able to find a movie that you will enjoy.  Some genres include comedies, dramas, fantasies, action films, and horror.  Films know how to draw in their viewers in order for the audience to become a part of the story.  When you watch a film, one of two things will happen, you will either become totally engaged or just not be able to get into it.

Whether watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory or Lord of the Rings, your mind will convince you that these people and places are real.  What most audiences do not know, how these films are actually created behind the scenes.

Female News Anchors – In Real Life

When television broadcast news first came onto the scene, it was typical for the anchors to be men. Some of the first and most notable anchors include Douglas Edwards and Walter Cronkite. Cronkite reported on news events from the late 1930s until 1981 and he was often referred to as “the most trusted man in America.” Cronkite covered some of the most notable events in his time such as the Nuremberg Trials, The Vietnam War and Watergate.

Cronkite hosted the CBS Evening News for 19 years as CBS had a retirement policy for its employees to retire at 65. While most of the anchors in the field were men in the early days of television, many prominent female anchors did appear on the scene soon after. As the medium of television grew in popularity, women became interested in pursuing careers in the field. Nowadays, a large number of women have made their way onto news programs and we are here to give you a glimpse into their real lives.

Although there are a lot of female journalists on television today, it was not always that way. Barbara Walters was one female anchor who blazed the trail for future female news broadcasters to gain respect and recognition. Walters became well-known in the 1960s when she began hosting The Today Show with Hugh Downs. She was the first woman to hold the title as host on an American news show and her career continued to grow from there. She famously went on to create and co-host The View in addition to hosting a number of special reports and conducting heavily watched interviews. At a time when there were few females in the newsroom, Walters worked her way up through the ranks and paved the way for future female anchors.

Since the success of Walters’ career, many other female news anchors have emerged on the scene. Women such as Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric have made their impact in television broadcast journalism. News organizations nowadays are hiring women to prominent positions on television. Sports caster Erin Andrews is another example, appearing on Fox NFL and from there becomong the co-host of Dancing with the Stars.

There are now so many news outlets and programs that we cannot keep track of all of the anchors on television. More and more women are becoming interested in the field of broadcast journalism, which means there are more female anchors on TV. But have no fear! We have compiled a list of some of the most outstanding and professional female anchors on television. While you may not recognize their names, you will most likely recognize their faces from seeing them on television.

“True Blood” star, Nelsan Ellis dies at the age of 39.

Nelsan Ellis, famous for playing Lafayette Reynolds in the HBO hit series “True Blood” died yesterday (08.07.2017) after complications from heart failure. He was 39 years old.

Ellis was born in 1977 and grew up between Chicago and Alabama. At the age of 17 he tried his luck joining the Marine Core but dropped out and five years later he was accepted to Juilliard and graduated in 2004. During his time there he made friends with later True Blood co-star Rutina Wesley.
True Blood brought Ellis his much sought after success. During the seven seasons he was part of the series, Ellis walked away with two Satellite Awards, an Ewwy for best supporting dramatic actor award and a NewNowNext Award for actor on the brink of fame.

Other than True Blood, Ellis was cast as Martin Luther King, Jr. in a supporting performance in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. In 2013 he joined the “Get on Up” cast, playing Bobby Byrd, Brown’s long-time friend.

“Crushed today by the loss of my friend and castmate Nelsan Ellis,” said “True Blood” costar Joe Manganiello. “He was a wonderful person, a pioneer, and a one of a kind artist. RIP.”

HBO released a statement saying the network was “extremely saddened” by Ellis’s death. “Nelsan was a long-time member of the HBO family whose groundbreaking portrayal of Lafayette will be remembered fondly within the overall legacy of True Blood,” the statement read. “Nelsan will be dearly missed by his fans and all of us at HBO.”

True Blood’s creator, Alan Ball, called Ellis “a singular talent whose creativity never ceased to amaze me. Working with him was a privilege.”
