The Golden Globe Awards 2016 Highlights

by

Drumroll, please, for last night’s “party of all reward parties,” essentially The 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards. It was exactly how hostess Liliana described it: expect the unexpected! From the spectacular fashions to draw dropping wins and speeches, this year’s ceremony brought strong competition between film and television, and Cliché has The Golden Globe Awards 2016 Highlights for you here!
Welcoming Back Host: Ricky Gervais

He was a topic of discussion during the Fashion Highlights, and with good reason. The return of Ricky Gervais was enough to keep audiences at the Golden Globes and those watching at home with tense smiles and baited breath, wondering what he was going to say next. Overall, Gervais, with his “it’s funny because it’s true” moments and all, did a good job of hosting; though, Matt Damon might feel otherwise. (Sorry, Matt.)

The epitome of elegance and grace, Kate Winslet, never ceases to amaze us with her loveliness — be it her diction, dress, or overall being. And yes, Kate, we couldn’t agree with you more: 2015 was an incredible year for women in film.

Receiving her first win, Rachel is proof that patience and determination pays off, and so does never giving up!

These two beauties were a hilarious duo. They had a harmonious chemistry, and to be honest, we’re envious of their sharp-witted, inside humor. We wished we could’ve sat with them at the after-party.

Who else had goosebumps when Sylvester Stallone received his award? It was the first standing ovation of the night, and no one seemed to be more shocked than Sylvester himself. It was a moment that left us with all the feels.

Though music came first, acting has been a close second calling for artist and singer Lady Gaga. Her guest appearance on American Horror Story: Hotel! showed us her flexibility and creativity in the entertainment and music industry. Not to mention, Lady Gaga’s speech was as beautiful as she. (On a side note: what was up with Leo’s side-eye? We spy memes.)

Cheers to our boy, Sam Smith! We couldn’t be happier for this gentleman who’s a sweetheart through and through, and of course, a genuinely talented artist, too.
The Cecil B. DeMille Award: Denzel Washington

Tom Hanks presented the most touching speech in admiration and respect for Denzel Washington. Listening to Tom Hanks’ speech and watching Denzel Washington’s reaction was enough to have us reaching for the tissues. We couldn’t think of a better person to have been honored with such an award; congrats, Denzel!
Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series, Drama: Taraji P. Henson, Empire

After much waiting and anticipation, Taraji finally received the recognition she deserves! (By the way, we would’ve loved some of those baked cookies!) Her award for her role as Cookie proves that the character’s personality is what our society longs for: to answer without hesitation or manipulate words, as described by Taraji during the Fashion Highlights.
Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture: Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant

The look of anticipation on Leonardo’s face could be felt through television screens and right into our hearts. We practically felt the anxiety riding within him, as everyone waited to hear the results, but how could we blame him? After listening to Leonardo’s interviews on the red carpet and acceptance speech regarding The Revenant, it’s no wonder the man was almost brought to tears when his name was announced. Now how about the next stop: the Oscars?!
Other winners from the night included:
Best Performance By A Supporting Actress In A Mini-Series or Television Movie: Maura Tierney, The Affair (1st win & nomination)

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Review

by


 
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 continues Katniss Everdeen’s (Jennifer Lawrence) journey towards a takeover of Panem. At first, she was unsure of her role in the Panem war, but her traumatic experiences in The Hunger Games and the great losses she’s experienced since then appear to have strengthened her resolve.  After recovering from a nearly fatal encounter with Peeta, Katniss sees red and decides that she must sneak into enemy territory to assassinate the crap out of President Snow.

HGMJ

Coming up for air after watching MJ: Part One.


Firstly, I must shout out Jennifer Lawrence and her incredible ability to breathe life into a character that inhabits a franchise I have long since given up on. I’m not even a big fan of J-Law, but she commits to Katniss, giving her a depth on screen that shows more visually than it does on script.  Her dialogue isn’t impressive, but it’s the delivery and execution that keep me watching.  It reminds me of the movie Tropic Thunder, when Kirk Lazarus (played by the masterful Robert Downey Jr.) upstages Ben Stiller’s character, Tugg Speedman, by unnecessarily crying on cue.  Speedman’s agent advises him to, “Cry Harder!,” if Lazarus tries it again. And in Mockingjay Part 2, J-Law definitely cries harder, and it’s impressive.  She sells this character and sells her hard.  I was bored for much of this movie, but I reluctantly bought it – the whole package – mainly because of J-Law’s acting.
HGMJ2

My fiance convincing me Part 2 will be better.


Also, I’d like to mention how The Hungers Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was, by far, the weakest film of the franchise. It was all yap yap-yap yap, and much less a Kidz Bop Running Man (and even more less a Battle Royale).  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is much better, in terms of action.  The action scenes were pretty good, and there were some chase scenes also that made me rub my eyes and get off my seat.  However, the on-screen violence wasn’t as bloody as Catching Fire, but they were impressive as a testament to the horrors of modern warfare.  There must’ve been a message there too, but it currently escapes me (and that’s a political discussion outside of this review).
HGMJ5

Katniss, remember, we’re here for overbearingly depressing dialogue. Not blockbustery action.


Despite the improvements, I’d have to say that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 still put me in metaphorical sleeper hold.  The action scenes were good, yes, but it’s between those set pieces that this movie suffers.  Nothing about this film is really interesting.  Like Mockingjay Part 1, this film felt stretched out and entirely unnecessary.  Many franchises are now doing this, splitting a finale into two parts at the cost of sacrificing a good story.  One could say that, in the case of The Hobbit, which was split into three movies, things seemed to have worked out.  That’s true. But The Hobbit has a world I would love to be in – like, for real.
At this point in the story, the world of the The Hunger Games isn’t a fascinating one. It’s a dystopian future where young people are sacrificed for the amusement of the rich and the suppression of the enslaved.  What part about that sounds worth visiting?  I’m here for Katniss and her story, and her story was practically over after Catching Fire.  I didn’t read the books, but I know a good story when I see it. This wasn’t it.
If I were a fan of this series, I’d probably had been let down by the third film, and more than likely, would have skipped Part 2 – which is what I’m suggesting viewers do in this case. The movie is well-made, it has Jennifer Lawrence, an incredible supporting cast and some cool action scenes, but doesn’t earn my hard earned dollars. It isn’t a must-see. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 isn’t catching fire. In my opinion, it’s smoldering without enough tinder to spark anew.

2015 Met Gala

by

The world’s most talked about celebrities stepped out for fashion’s biggest night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on Monday. The theme this year was “Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film, and Fashion,” so we saw tons of reds, interesting headpieces, and intricate embellishments. From Beyoncé’s sheer Givenchy dress not leaving much to the imagination to Zendaya’s gorgeous Fausto Puglisi mini skirt/train, the 2015 Met Gala was one serious red carpet. Check out some of our favorite — and least favorite — looks from the night below!

Mockingjay: Part 1 Review

by

the-hunger-games-mockingjay-part-1-final-posterThe majority of critics were all in agreement about one thing concerning the highly anticipated Mockingjay: Part 1; and that is that “not very much happens” (IBN Live).  Following in the footsteps of moneymaker series such as Harry Potter and Twilight, the studio stretched the final book into two separate movies. While filmmakers of the “HP” series started this trend for logical reasons (like including many important details and back story), it’s hard to imagine that the producers of the Hunger Games trilogy saw it as anything more than an opportunity to put more cash in the bank. Not cool, Lionsgate, not cool!

Though the sadistic Hunger Games arena is absent this time around, there is no shortage of violence in this third installment to the series—though perhaps not in the amount you’ve come to expect from these films. While there is very little action throughout the film, producers did a fantastic job of relaying the overall destruction caused by the civil war in Panem. Wide screen shots of ruined cities and charred remains of fallen victims definitely highlight the large-scale ramifications of war.

Fans of the bestselling novels will agree that District 13 was one of the environments we were most looking forward to seeing on the big screen. Lionsgate delivered on that aspect of the film, and the underground “honeycomb” bunker city was spot on with the book’s description, a dark location which complemented the somber mood of the entire film.hunger_games_mockingjay__part_one_ver9

As always, Jennifer Lawrence gives us a brilliant performance playing the reluctant hero, Katniss Everdeen. Once again she tries to resist playing a part in political propaganda, but knowing she must put aside her feelings in order to save her loved ones, the ever-conflicted Everdeen becomes the raw, empathetic and honest protagonist we have come to know and love. Similarly, Josh Hutcherson’s performance as Peeta Mellark is just as palpable. Fans want to save “the boy with the bread” just as badly as Katniss does, even in spite of his complete character change.

In conclusion, Lawrence and Hutcherson steal the show, as usual, with their intense performances. The elaborate dystopian sceneries are also to be admired, but what the movie lacks is the franchise’s usual fast-paced action – due largely in part to the story being split into a two-part film.

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin Split

by

Rumored couple Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin split!

Cliché Magazine reported the pair as a couple after they were spotted together at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this past September, but are the two really broken up?

It’s hard to tell. While the media has speculated Lawrence and Martin were dating since June, the two celebrities have remained silent about any possible relationship. In fact, according to E! News, they were only photographed together–truly together and not apart but in the same photograph like at the iHeartRadio Music Festival–once, while they were getting off a private jet in Van Nuys, California last month.

Since they never released a statement about their relationship, it’s unlikely either Lawrence or Martin will comment on their break-up.

According to E! News, in an interview in the November issue of Vanity Fair, Lawrence discussed love, romance, and relationships. The Hunger Games star described her ideal relationship. Lawrence stated that, rather than a “big, passionate love,” she would “rather have just a peaceful time. [Those] are deeper because you can be your true self with somebody, and somebody can be their true self with you.”

She also revealed her biggest turnoff: “I don’t like fighting, and I find argumentative people the most annoying people on the planet. Like, why do you still want to be fighting? It’s just unattractive.”

Here’s hoping that Lawrence and Martin find love again soon!

Jennifer Lawrence Addresses Her Leaked Nude Pics

by

Only about two months ago, nude photographs of popular female celebrities like Ariana Grande, Kate Upton, and Victoria Justice were leaked onto the internet from the idols’ hacked iCloud accounts. While some of these women claim that the photographs were not of them or were cleverly photoshopped to look like them, others have confirmed that the photographs were real.

In Vanity Fair’s November issue, one such star, Jennifer Lawrence, addresses her leaked nude pics.

She states, “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world.”

According to EOnline, the Hunger Games star also recalled attempting to write a statement in August after the nude photographs surfaced online: “Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship [with Nicholas Hoult] for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”

Lawrence then went on to accuse the leaked photos as a “sex crime.”  She said, “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting.”

While I certainly do not believe that posting photographs of nude women–celebrity or otherwise–against the subjects’ will is appropriate or anywhere near acceptable, I definitely would not liken the leak of naked photographs to a sex crime. Disgusting, yes. Disrespectful, absolutely. But calling it a sex crime belittles actual sex crimes like molestation or rape. However, I don’t think Lawrence meant to trivialize sex crimes–she’s understandably still outraged at the immense privacy violation.

Hopefully the hackers behind the nude photo leak will be found and disciplined accordingly. No one should go unpunished for such a massive privacy violation.

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin Spotted Together

by

Proof of the latest rumored celebrity couple?
Actress Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin spotted together! The two celebrities were seen together this past weekend at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas.
At the time the above photograph was taken, E! News reports, Lawrence “pretended not to notice her beau and walked with her friend toward the side stage to catch the rest of the concert,” while Martin left to perform with his band, Coldplay. Earlier, Lawrence was seen entering Coldplay’s dressing room before their performance.
While neither the Hunger Games star nor Martin have confirmed or even addressed the relationship rumors, there have been other signs pointing toward their hook-up. Previous spottings include Lawrence dancing at a Coldplay concert last week, a reported date at a vineyard in upstate New York, and a meet-up with friends at the Chateau Marmont hotel.
So was this a date or an accidental run-in? Let’s take a page from Martin’s ex, Gwyneth Paltrow, and call this a conscious coincidence.

Gabrielle Union Falls Victim to Celebrity Nude Photo Leaks

by

Say it isn’t so! Of the newest celebs in this hacking scandal, Gabrielle Union falls victim to celebrity nude photo leaks. In the past several weeks various celebs such as Iggy Azalea, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton have been targeted, hacked and exposed with nude photos and sex tapes being leaked online by unknown sources.
Now, why are these stars being targeted? There hasn’t been a definitive answer for that, however, this is not the first time Hollywood stars have been plagued by the stunts pulled by these online hackers– And from the looks of it, this is not going to be the last.
Former Disney Channel star Vanessa Hudgens and ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star Kim Kardashian, are allegedly under fire– yet again, with newly leaked photos of women that appear to be them, yet these allegations have yet to be confirmed. Although they were previously caught in a whirlwind of tabloid drama, they were able to bounce back and continue their flourishing careers, but will things be the same the second time around?
Surely everyone can agree that those who are hacking and leaking these personal photos are in the wrong, but American Idol runner-up and current Democratic congressional candidate, Clay Aiken, had a bit more to say in his interview with The Washington Post about the latest celebrity hacking scandal– aside from the hackers needing to be “hogtied”. “Anybody who takes inappropriate pictures of themselves deserves exactly what they get,” Aiken expressed. Aiken continues on to say, “And it’s unfortunate that we don’t have internet security right now or the laws in place to protect people from pirating that stuff.”
Hopefully celebs will be more weary of snapping that sexy photo for their significant other because privacy these days is obviously at an all time low.

Our Inner Primrose: An Interview with Willow Shields from Catching Fire

by

65_5221There are currently many, many girls who would gladly trade places with Willow Shields, at least for a day. This is because the 13-year-old, better known as Primrose Everdeen, will be seen alongside Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth this Friday in the second installment of The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire. Below, I chat with Shields about an average day on the set of Catching Fire, her favorite thing about the franchise, and what it’s like working with some of the most desired (and beautiful) actors in Hollywood.
 
Cliché: What got you interested in acting? Was it something you’ve always wanted to do?
Willow Shields: Pretty much ever since I can remember. My older brother was auditioning for movies and it just seemed fascinating to me, so I wanted to try, too. I remember telling my parents, “I want to be an actress. I want to walk the red carpet one day.” I think I was about seven.
Describe an average day on the set of Catching Fire.
Usually, I have to get up kind of early. They pick you up and take you to set… sometimes it’s still dark out. Then, I will usually go to hair and makeup. Prim doesn’t really need makeup, so mostly it’s hair. Then, I usually shoot scenes and in between do my schoolwork. I have a teacher on set and I usually work in my trailer. More shooting… Lunch… more school… more shooting. Once the day is done, I usually crash in bed pretty early.
What drew you to this role?
I got an audition to play Prim from my agent. I was reading The Hunger Games when I got the audition. When I saw what character I was auditioning for, I was excited. You hardly ever get an audition where you actually know the character like this! Anyway, I auditioned by tape first and then flew to LA to audition with Gary Ross. Once I got the part, I just kept reading and finished all three books.
Do you think you are like Primrose at all? What do you love most about her?
Prim and I both love animals. We both have sisters that are the most important person in the world to us. I have a twin and related so much to Katniss and Prim’s relationship in these stories. I am NOT like Prim in her medical abilities. Even the fake needles on set were kind of gross to me! Prim is caring and strong and I think that is what I love about her most.
What do you love most about the story in general?
I love books and movies about the future and I read tons of Science Fiction. Suzanne Collins created this amazing world and that is what I love the most.
What was it like working with Jennifer Lawrence and all those handsome boys (Josh, Liam, etc)? Any crushes?
I think most people know already that the cast is super sweet and fun to work with. Jennifer is the best and working with her is probably the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. One scene we were shooting together, a kind of serious one, she is supposed to leave the room and I’m watching her as she goes. Every time she would leave, she would turn and make a goofy face to me. It was hard to keep serious. Josh and Liam are sweet, but seriously I am thirteen and I think they are a little too old for me!
Favorite scene to shoot for Catching Fire? Hardest scene to shoot?
I think my favorite scenes to shoot in Catching Fire were just the personal conversations between Katniss and Prim. They have a lot of emotion and show how Prim is growing up. The hardest scene? We did shoot one scene, after Gale has been whipped. It was kind of hard in a funny way just because there were so many people in this room, and stuff was being flung around. I kept bumping into everyone and even smashed my fingers in the chaos.
What other kinds of roles do you want to the future? Do you have any dream roles?
No dream roles, where I’m like, I want to play so-and-so. I just want to keep growing as an actress and keep having the chance to be a part of films. It’s what I love.
Do you have any role models you aspire to be/use as inspiration in your acting?
Jennifer for one! I get to work with one of the best actresses around and that is something I would never have dreamed of happening. I wish I could be like her someday. I also admire Angelina Jolie a lot—not just for her acting, but for all the charity work she does.
 
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters worldwide this Friday, November 22.
