Another year is coming to an end which means another Worst Film list must be put together. I am pretty sure that most of my choices for this list people will agree with, although I have picked a controversial number one in the list but I really did hate the film a lot. So here we go with the worst films I have watched in 2016!
Here we go again.
I mean that in two different ways. The first being a second blog post more about life and love but using the films I love. Tonight’s post comes with a rather heartbreaking quote from The Sound of Music. Well I find it that way, considering it is the Baroness who says it to Maria about the Captain. You know the man she is actually engaged to! But the more you think about that quote the more you realise that it is true, if he knows how you feel then it seems to work against you. If he isn’t sure then he’s all for you. Seriously men you really are the complicated ones!
Meryl Streep is the most nominated actress of all time, a massive 19 nominations to which she has won 3 times. She won for her roles in The Iron Lady and Sophie’s Choice as a leading actress and Kramer vs Kramer as a supporting actress.
This year she picked up a nomination for actress in a supporting role as the Witch in ‘Into the Woods’ in recent years Streep has quickly become one of my all time favourite actresses. It might seem like an obvious choice with her critical acclaim but I really do think she actually deserves every single piece of it. She is different in each of her film roles and brings something to each character she has played on-screen.
I have grown to enjoy the Golden Globes over the past few years, possibly even more than Oscars. They seem to be more relaxed and fun. Everyone seems to have a good time. This year the big talking point fell around Ricky Gervais who was hosting, some of his jokes not going down very well with the audience. This then lead to him disappearing for more than an hour from the ceremony, leading to talk that he was stopped from coming on to deliver monologue.
So the talk surrounding the Globes is that Gervais will not be asked to host the show for the third time in a row. I personally found his jokes to be rather amusing and I am not usually a massive fan of his. But I guess for the American audience Gervais’ still was a bit extreme. Best moment had to be introducing Bruce Willis as Ashton Kutcher’s dad!
My favorite speech had to be from Robert De Niro when he picked up the Cecil B. DeMille Award (lifetime achievement). He managed to mix thanking people, talking about his career with a very heart warming feel and jokes put in to even it all out. He really is something else!
Colin Firth continued his collection of awards for his performance in “The King’s Speech” and looks almost certain to pick up the Oscar next month. His speech was also just fantastic, being very funny as well. It really is brilliant to see Colin getting the recognition that he so rightly deserves.
My favorite moment had to come from Michael Douglas appearing on stage to present the Best Film (Drama) award. He received a standing ovation from everyone in the room and responded with “there has to be an easier way to get a standing ovation”. It was brilliant to see him on a stage a few days after being given the all clear from his cancer battle. Definetly the most tear jerking moment in the whole ceremony. An icon to all!
The Winners are . . .
The first poster has been released for the third film in the “Meet the Parents” franchise. Which is now branching to Greg and Pam having a baby! I have always loved Meet the Parents so I hope this will still be funny, even if it is the same jokes over again which we found in Meet the Fockers.
The character posters for Machete have all been released. Very strong cast in my opinion!
What a fantastic line up !!!
Hollywood stars Uma Thurman, Meg Ryan, Whoopi Goldberg and Adrien Brody will head up the judging panel at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
The actors will be joined by fellow celebrities James Franco, Mary-Kate Olsen, Bradley Cooper, Melissa Leo, Parker Posey and Morgan Spurlock, who are all among the 32 jurors at Robert De Niro‘s movie event, which kicks off on Wednesday.
The line-up was announced at a press conference in the Big Apple on Tuesday, which featured Thurman, director Spike Lee and festival founders De Niro and Jane Rosenthal.
And New York resident Thurman is delighted to play such a key role in the eighth annual festival.
She says, “For me and people who enjoy films, Tribeca has been a major event for which all look forward to with major anticipation. As a New Yorker, it’s wonderful to see the impact it has on the city.
“This year is especially exciting because I get to be a part of it as a juror.”
De Niro founded the event with Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff to help revitalise the lower Manhattan area after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 – and he is proud to continue celebrating New York City as a major film-making centre.
He adds, “It’s great to see how much the festival has grown since we started it in 2002 and how it has impacted this neighbourhood.”
The Tribeca Film Festival, which will host the world premiere of Woody Allen‘s new movie Whatever Works on Wednesday, runs until 3 May.
