Like A Supermodel’s Vagina*

Globes

I. Love. Award season. I gobble up award shows like Jordan Belfort does Quaaludes. (Have you all seen “The Wolf of Wall Street” yet? Excellent film.) I’m not sure what sparked the interest, but it’s been an addiction for the past ten years or so. When each new season rolls around, I giddily strategize my DVR for best red carpet viewing and commercial fast-forwarding. The only red carpet coverage I’ll watch is E! and their 25 cameras, even though Giuliana Rancic annoys the you-know-what out of me. As corny as he is, I still like Ryan Seacrest. Kelly Osbourne is tolerable and I think Ross Matthews is hilarious. When I watch them, I want to be them. It’s always been one of my dreams to report from a red carpet. I’m obsessed with stars, not because they’re famous but because of how they became famous. It fascinates me how some come from backgrounds like trailer parks and drug addiction and somehow wind up on the A-list. Plus, I can’t cry on command and I’m intensely intrigued by anyone who can. Character quirk. Anyway, to interview a celebrity is very high on my bucket list.

Technically, award season is ongoing, but the good stuff doesn’t roll around until after the new year. It usually kicks off with some lighter fare—the People’s Choice Awards, for example, which aired Jan. 8—but things start to heat up with the Golden Globes, quickly followed by the Grammys, then the Oscars. It’s an exciting couple months for an entertainment geek like myself. Continue reading

Hope is stronger than fear—or at least that’s what we’ve been taught by the girl on fire. In the final trailer that aired during game 4 of the World Series, there are no more attempts to be coy about the plot twist. We see our heroine, Katniss Everdeen, has been thrust, once again, into a fight to the death in the 75th annual Hunger Games. Every 25 years, the Capital is responsible for the Quarter Quell, which throws a curveball into the bloodbath. With an uprising on his hands, President Snow decides this year calls for a best-of-the-best extermination: only past victors will enter the arena. Continue reading

New “Catching Fire” Trailer Sizzles @ Comic-Con

The second theatrical trailer for the second installment of The Hunger Games saga was released at #SDCC over the weekend and it…is…awesome! There’s a lot of fire and heat-related humor to be used here (seriously, it’s endless), but I won’t. Except for the title. ^ You guys are smart. You got this. Continue reading
