2014 Hollywood Film Awards Announces Host – Queen Latifah

The HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS to be Broadcast Live from the Hollywood Palladium, Friday, Nov. 14 on CBS
The “Hollywood Film Awards” today announced that multi-talented Academy and Emmy Award nominated, Golden Globe Award-winning actress, Grammy Award-winning musician and talk show host Queen Latifah, will host the inaugural broadcast of the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS, live from the Hollywood Palladium Friday, November 14, 2014 (8:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. The “Hollywood Film Awards” have recognized excellence in the art of cinema and filmmaking for 17 years, honoring some of the world’s biggest stars. They are considered the official launch of the awards season.
“I’m honored to be a part of such a legendary award show,” stated Latifah. “The HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS have been a staple in the awards season for years, and I’m excited to be the first host to bring them to television!”
“Queen Latifah is the real deal. She is a triple threat, she can act, she can sing, she can dance, she is beloved by audiences across multiple genres and she entertains millions of people every day,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events for CBS. “We look forward to having her as our host for the inaugural broadcast of the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS.”
“Queen Latifah is a world-class entertainer,” said Carlos de Abreu, Founder and Executive Producer of the Hollywood Film Awards. “From film and music to television, her humor, quick wit and ability to entertain live audiences make her the perfect choice to host the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS.”
Latifah was anointed hip-hop’s first lady of rap at the age of 19 with the release of her highly successful debut album, “All Hail The Queen.” She went on to release multiple Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling albums, and in 2006 she became the first hip-hop artist to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Latifah has enjoyed similar success in television and film. Her first TV series was “Living Single,” and she has starred in nearly 40 films, including, “Jungle Fever,” “Living Out Loud,” “The Bone Collector,” “Chicago,” “Hairspray,” “Bringing Down the House,” “The Secret Life of Bees,” “Last Holiday,” “Beauty Shop” and “Joyful Noise.” Also, she executive produced and starred in the HBO true-life drama “Life Support,” for which she won a Golden Globe award, a SAG award and an Emmy nomination. Her production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment, was […]

“Star Wars” : The Top 25 (Best Costume Design)

Continuing on with this weekly series of mine that I’m doing here at the site, we’re talking the top 25 Oscar winners in just about every single one of the Academy Award categories out there.
Aside from the shorts and something like Best Sound Editing or Best Sound Mixing like I mentioned previously, I’ll be hitting them all over the coming weeks and months, including of course the big eight categories. I’m also potentially going to do one that doesn’t exist (a fictitious Best Ensemble category), but that’s just an idea I currently am toying with. We’ll see about that one. I’m also deciding what to do with Best Animated Feature, but perhaps we’ll cross that bridge next week and deal with it then.
Today I’ll be knocking off another one of the technical categories, with this one being the fashionistas favorite…the Best Costume Design field. As you all know by now, depending on the category in question, I may wind up discussing the individual winners I’m citing pretty specifically or just giving more of a broad overview of the winners. For now though, I’m still keeping it fairly simple. Like I’ve said over the past month or so though, in all honesty, you all mostly just want to see the lists anyway, so I have no problem obliging you there in that particular regard. All you have to do is just be patient over the next few paragraphs once again…
This time around, I’m just going the overview route again, since the look of these costumes is really what matters for this category, sort of above anything else. Also it really just depends on what sort of costumes you’re partial to. There are really all sorts that have won the Academy Award here, so it’s a matter of taste. Do you respond more to overt costume dramas? Period pieces? Fantasy epics? Science fiction adventures? There’s something for everyone.
I’ll basically just discuss my top ten a bit. To me, the best winner of this category so far to date has been Star Wars, which perhaps will surprise some, but hear me out. What other Oscar winning costume design has been as engrained in our culture as in that one? We all know what every costume in that flick looks like. The other odd one in my top ten (and even my top five) is from The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the […]

Bradley Cooper allegedly shoots down Dita Von Teese

HollywoodNews.com: As it is rumored that Bradley Cooper is rekindling his romance with Zoe Saldana, it seems that he only has eyes for her.
Cooper was reportedly at Farfalla in Los Feliz where Dita Von Teese was also and allegedly tried to get a little attention from the actor, states RadarOnline. The burlesque queen reportedly tried to send Cooper a drink, but he allegedly rejected the offer (likely since he has been sober for 8 years).
Cooper reportedly ended up leaving the restaurant without even talking to Dita. However, she might not want to take it personally considering he has been spotted with Saldana again after dating for a few months.
Do you like him with Zoe or should he date someone else?
