Who Do The People Choose? ‘The Hunger Games’!

the hunger games wins big at 2013 people's choice awards

I think it’s now clear ‘The Hunger Games’ is a HUGE franchise. The People’s Choice Awards were held last night. These are actually my favorite awards, because it shows who the public truly likes, not just who the studios are trying to hype. ‘The Hunger Games’ won five awards, including Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie, and Favorite Movie Franchise. The star, Jennifer Lawrence, picked up two prizes herself. Jennifer and her two co-stars, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, also won the award for Favorite On Screen Chemistry. Wait until we get to ‘Mockingjay’! Here’s the entire list of People’s Choice Awards winners.

Lily Allen Welcomes Baby #2!

lily allen welcomes baby #2

Lily Allen welcomed her second child. She had another baby girl! The baby reportedly was born on January 8 and is said to be named Marnie Rose. Lily’s rep never even confirmed the singer was pregnant; we had to figure it out from pictures like the one here. So it’s not a surprise that no official confirmation has been given- LOL. But Lily did tweet on December 31:

2013 is gonna be big

I’m only planning on spending a few days of it pregnant. Unlike the last 3 years.

Then she tweeted how she was sampling curries in an effort to induce labor. Looks like something worked! Her pal Charlie Condou tweeted:

I confess I had a little cry when @lilyrosecooper told me Marnie Rose was born on my 40th birthday. Welcome to the world beautiful girl xxx

Charlie’s birthday is January 8. Congratulations to Lily, her husband, Sam Cooper, and big sister Ethel Mary!

Snooki Wows The Crowd At Perfumania

snooki at perfumania

Snooki said at one point, towards the end of ‘Jersey Shore,’ that she hoped to get out of reality TV altogether. She wanted to give her son a normal life. Of course, Snooki is still under contract for her MTV spin-off, ‘Snooki & JWoww,’ so she knew she had to do that. And here she is, promoting her brand with her perfume line and nail line. Snooki’s earning that money at Perfumania!

I don’t blame Snooki, honestly. She’s probably making some serious money. Even if Snooki isn’t set for life, these earnings give her a lot of options she probably wouldn’t otherwise have. I don’t blame her for striking while the iron is hot. We all know reality TV personalities (and regular actors, too, for that matter) can watch their careers fizzle in NO time.



‘Hunger Games’ Star Jennifer Lawrence Dazzles At People’s Choice Awards

Something tells me 2013 is going to be Jennifer Lawrence’s YEAR. Here’s ‘The Hunger Games‘ star at the People’s Choice Awards. Jennifer won two individual awards for her role as Katniss: Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Face of Heroism. Not only that, but ‘The Hunger Games’ “dominated” the awards show last night, with wins for Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie, and Favorite Movie Franchise. Something tells me ‘Catching Fire’ is going to be huge next fall!

Jennifer’s also received several acting nominations for ‘The Silver Linings Playbook.’ She’s expected to get nominated for an Academy Award, too. So, as I said, it looks like 2013 will be Jennifer’s year. I’m looking forward to watching it unfold.



Halle Berry & Nahla Share A Hug Before School

halle berry & nahla share a hug

Halle Berry’s back from Paris. Seeing Olivier Martinez and Halle visit churches in Paris makes me think we shouldn’t be surprised if we hear about a romantic Parisian wedding! Halle’s pretty private; hopefully we’ll get at least one picture. Won’t Nahla make the most adorable flower girl?

Here’s Halle taking Nahla to school. They shared a hug after getting out of the car before walking inside. Nahla looks like she wanted to be carried. Perhaps the waiting paparazzi spooked her a little? That wouldn’t be surprising. I’m sure all those paps are scary for the kids, at least sometimes.



Nicki Minaj Is Colorful For ‘American Idol’ Premiere Event

Nicki Minaj wasn’t afraid of color when she chose her dress for the ‘American Idol‘ premiere event! Here she is working the blue carpet in pink and yellow. Nicki’s been flaunting these colors for a while, so it’s not a big style departure for her. And she’s a blonde again (Nicki went with dramatic dark locks for the Fox All-Star Party earlier this week).

Something tells me part of the fun of watching ‘American Idol’ will be to see how Nicki dresses each night. Meanwhile, Nicki’s fellow judge, Mariah Carey, didn’t make an appearance on the carpet. I noticed she didn’t appear on the red carpet for the Fox All-Star Party, either. Perhaps she’s told ‘American Idol’ she isn’t going doing the gauntlet (it’s what they call all the photographers gathered to snap pics on the red carpet)?
