2012 MTV Movie Award nominees

If you had to pin Harry Potter against Twilight, I’d give Twilight the advantage. It would be a tough battle, but sadly the vampires would come out victorious thanks to Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Now put Twilight up against an original, dark, but very enthralling film called The Hunger Games… The victor would no doubt be the latter, with Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen) and the rest of her cast mates… Well if MTV is anything to go by. The film scored a whopping eight nominations – and rightfully so. Nice. Check out the full list of nominees below:

Movie of the Year

Bridesmaids
The Hunger Games
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2
The Help
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1

Best Male Performance

And the 2012 Oscars Nominees are?

Today is the day many actors, filmmakers and industry experts and employees have been waiting for- the Academy Awards nominations. The 2012 nominees will be announced at 15:30, South African time. Who will be in the running to take home the coveted award?

George Clooney, Jean DuJardin, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are bound to feature in the list of nominees for their roles in a lead role. The Artist and The Help have enjoyed early wins this awards season and they’re bound to continue on that winning tip, well at least in terms of nominations that is. The Descendants, Hugo and Moneyball are bound to feature too.

In terms of the ladies, Meryl Streep, Glenn Close will surely get nominated. Will our golden girl Charlize Theron get yet another Oscar nod for her role in Young Adult? I think so. I think Michelle Williams will get one too.

Scorsese, Clooney and Allen will go up against Alexander Payne(The Descendants) and Michael Hazanavicius (The Artist) in the Best Director category. I think this is going to be one of the most hotly contested categories and the one to watch out for.

Overall, The Artist seems like a firm favourite this year. Let’s reconvene at 15:30 to find out who will be in the running for one of Academy Awards, the 84th of its kind.

The 69th Annual Golden Globes are here

Award season rolls on and this time it’s the chance of the Golden Globe Awards take place in Los Angeles tonight. The Globes are generally seen as a good indication as to who will walk away with the coveted Academy Award next month. So will The Help and The Artist be on the list of winners tonight? We’ll have to wait and see later. Here’s a quick look at this year’s nominees:

It’s Splittsville for Ryan Reynolds & Scarlett Johansson


They’ve been referred to as one of the hottest couples in the world and it’s no surprise why. When actors Ryan Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson got married two years ago, I thought to myself, hmm, this doesn’t seem real. It was like Barbie and Ken come to life and there wasn’t really a build up to them walking down the aisle, as is the case with other celebrity weddings (like Nicole Richie and Joel Madden for instance).

Anyway the latest from Hollywood is that Ryan and Scarlett have split and will be divorcing soon. According to celebrity website TMZ, the split was amicable. “After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”
Sad news, but it would appear as if things are as good as they can be with the two. It’s really strange though because while Ryan gushed about Scarlett in the September issue of GQ, we never really saw the two together much. Or is that just me?

Been quite a week, a month for breakups hey:
Zac and Vanessa, Tony and Eva, these two and more… crazy Hollywood!

I haven’t seen the film, so I can’t pass judgement, but it looks as if Natalie Portman is on her way to Oscar glory.
