Razzie Awards 2010 – Nominations

The awards which like to honour the worst films of the year! Yes its all just a bit of fun and to laugh at really. But the Razzie nominations were released last night, yes the day before the Oscar nominations are due out. Interesting as Sandra Bullock could end up as the best and worst actress of the year . . . you see what they have done there.

They even have worst movie, actor and actress of the decade awards to give out.

What do you make of the Razzies?

MTV Movie Awards 2009 – Breakthrough Performance Female – Ashley Tisdale

MTV Movie Awards are on going at this very moment.

Ashley Tisdale has picked up the award for breakthrough female performance, for her role in High School Musical 3.

Just looked through the other nominations, and I find this quite a surprise as it was a pretty tough category. With Amanda Seyfried from Mamma Mia! being nominated and Miley for Hannah Montana.

News: Angels & Demons Draws The Crowd At Global Box Office

Not a suprise that it is a big hit !!!

Tom Hanks’ new movie Angels & Demons continues to rule the international box office chart after fending off competition from Ben Stiller’s Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian.

The religious thriller, director Ron Howard’s big screen adaptation of Dan Brown’s book of the same name, scooped $60.4 million (£40.26 million) outside of the U.S. to claim the number one position for its second consecutive week.

Stiller’s sequel has proven to be the most popular choice Stateside, taking $53.5 million (£35.7 million) over the Memorial Day weekend (22-24May09), but its pull wasn’t as strong overseas and it debuted in second place with $50.1 million (£33.4 million) at the global box office.

Star Trek came in a distant third place with $11.5 million (£7.6 million), while X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Hannah Montana rounded out the top five with $7 million (£4.67 million) and $3.1 million (£2 million) respectively.

Twilight Leads MTV Movie Awards Nominations

Very interesting nominations, but good that younger stars and not normally award movies get to be nominated.

Vampire blockbuster Twilight and Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire will lead the charge at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards after scooping seven and six nominations, respectively.

The bloodsucking love story, based on the book by Stephenie Meyer, will compete for prizes including Best Movie, Best Female Performance for Kristen Stewart, and Breakthrough Performance Male for both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

Slumdog Millionaire stars Freida Pinto and Dev Patel are also up for the Breakthrough Performance accolades, while the film will go up against Twilight, The Dark Knight, Iron Man and High School Musical 3: Senior Year in the Best Movie category.

Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway (Bride Wars), Angelina Jolie (Wanted) and Kate Winslet (The Reader) join Stewart in the Best Female Performance line-up, and Zac Efron (High School Musical 3), Shia Labeouf (Eagle Eye) and Robert Downey, Jr. (Tropic Thunder) will fight it out for the Best Male Performance title.

Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana: The Movie) and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical 3) will go head-to-head for the Breakthrough Performance Female award, while Cyrus is also nominated for Best Song From a Movie for Hannah Montana.

Real-life Slumdog Millionaire lovebirds Patel and Pinto have also earned recognition in the Best Kiss category, alongside Twilight’s Pattinson and Stewart, James Franco and Sean Penn for Milk, and Paul Rudd and Thomas Lennon in I Love You, Man.

The Dark Knight’s Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger will battle it out for Best Fight alongside Seth Rogen, James Franco and Danny McBride for their scrap in Pineapple Express.

The Golden Popcorn prizes, nominated and voted for by MTV viewers, will be handed out in Los Angeles on 31 May.

Miley Cyrus – The Climb

This is slowly becoming my song of the moment. I can totally relate to the lyrics of the song and find it inspiring for that reason.  (It is from the Hannah Montana Movie, so I really want to see it even more now. Yes, I know I am sad that I really want to see the movie and love the TV show).

Lyrics

I can almost see it.
that dream I’m dreaming, but
there’s a voice inside of my head, tellin’
you’ll never reach it
every step I’m takin’
every move I make
feels lost in no direction,
my faith is shakin’
but I gotta keep tryin’
gotta keep my head held high

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
always gonna be an uphill battle
sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
ain’t about how fast I get there
ain’t about what’s waitin’ on the other side
it’s a climb

The struggles I’m facing
the changes I’m taking
sometimes they knock me down, but
no I’m not breaking
I may not know where, but
these are the moments that
I’m gonna remember most
I’ve just gotta keep goin’, and
I gotta be strong
just keep pushing on, but

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
always gonna be an uphill battle
sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
ain’t about how fast I get there
ain’t about what’s waitin’ on the other side
it’s a climb

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
always gonna be an uphill battle
sometimes I’m gonna have to lose
ain’t about how fast I get there
ain’t about what’s waitin’ on the other side
it’s a climb

Keep on movin’
keep climbin’
keep faith baby
It’s all about, it’s all about
the climb
keep the faith, keep your faith, woah

I really do think a song like this to be in Hannah Montana is very good for the young girls who watch it. It should inspire them to keep going in life (yes that may sound a bit dramatic, but I mean more when they get older and listen to the song again and actually understand what the lyrics mean rather than just listening to singing along because its a Miley song. But I will hopefully find out how it is in the movie, I’m kinda guessing when she has to choose between her two lives? I will find out if I am right at some point. 🙂

Hannah Montana Sings To Number One At U.S. Box Office

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker‘s Fast & Furious was knocked from the top spot, but pulled in at second with earnings of $28.8 million (£19.6 million).

But the action film has held on to the title for the biggest opening weekend of 2009, boasting a two-week total of $118 million (£80.4 million).

Animated film Monsters vs Aliens took third place with $22.6 million (£15.4 million) and was followed by Seth Rogen‘s new comedy, Observe and Report, which debuted at $11.1 million (£7.5 million)
