Meryl Streep and “The Artist” Win Big at the 2012 BAFTA Awards

Edited by

While music was celebrating its biggest night in Los Angeles, over on the other side of the pond, film was having a classy evening all its own. Meryl Streep racked up her second BAFTA win for The Iron Lady, but lost her stiletto on her way to the stage. The Artist, however, truly stole the show with a total of seven wins, including Best Picture, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Director for Michel Hazanavicius. With the Academy Awards basically around the corner, it’s a safe bet that The Artist and Dujardin are the picture and actor to beat – respectively – and with this win, Meryl might be well on her way to claiming her third Oscar statuette. Full list of the 2012 BAFTA winners after the jump.

2012 BAFTA Nominations Announced

Edited by

Awards season is in full swing as we inch ever closer to the grand daddy of them all, the 2012 Academy Awards. The next step on the road to Oscar is its British equivalent, the BAFTAs. The Artist is quickly emerging as a front-runner favorite this year, scoring nominations in all the major categories including  Best Film, Leading Actor, Leading Actress, Best Director and Original Screenplay. Meanwhile, Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams, fresh off their Golden Globe wins, will go head-to-head against The Artist‘s Bérénice Bejo, Tilda Swinton for We Need to Talk About Kevin and Viola Davis for The Help in what is easily the most competitive and interesting category. And chances are the same names will be read out come Oscar night. But until then, full list of the 2012 BAFTA nominees after the jump!

An Absent Katy Perry Wins 5 People’s Choice Awards Proving People Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Have Choices or Awards

Edited by

Let’s get this over with. Well, the People’s Choice Awards – or as I like to call it, “Wait, who’s that on the stage?” –  were last night and Katy Perry cleaned house, winning five of the coveted (?) awards, including Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Song of the Year for “E.T.”, Favorite Music Video for “Last Night (T.G.I.F.)” and interestingly enough, Favorite TV Guest Star for her stint on How I Met Your Mother. Too bad she didn’t bother to show up. But as we all know, the People’s Choice Awards are on par with the Grammys in terms of relevance and on par with a moderately lavish bar mitzvah in terms of its ability to draw celebrities. Other big winners included Emma Stone, who was actually present to accept her awards for  Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic Movie Actress and Demi Lovato who beat out pop heavyweights Beyoncé, Lady GagaRihanna and Perry to win Favorite Pop Artist. Full, unnecessarily long list of winners after the jump.

Hermione, A History

Edited by

Our indie crush of the week has totes been the drop dead stunning Emma Watson. For the past decade she’s always pleasantly surprised as she morphs in and out of Hermione Granger to become a Lady. But let us not forget the bushy haired, buck toothed bookworm that took her to the stratospheric level she’s at today. Today our retrospective reflects on her dorky alter-ego, that ultimately *spoiler* saves the world. We know Harry and Ron wouldn’t last 5 minutes without her. And the movies wouldn’t have lasted five minutes without her if she had actually dropped out after Goblet of Fire to get “an education”.

With that, we take a look back at Hermione’s more awkward moments of Harry Potter:

Pottermore: The Most Fashionable (?) Harry Potter Website with NEW Original Content from J.K. Rowling

Edited by

Muggles, the time has come. The Scottish Book, or rather the Harry Potter encyclopedia J.K. Rowling teased us with for years, is becoming a reality. Only it won’t be a book at all. It’ll be a fully interactive online playground called Pottermore, where she’ll post new (NEW!) original stories about the backstories and future stories of the rest of the characters in Harry Potter World. How is this fashionable you ask? Well, you’ll get to virtually go to Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, where presumably you’ll get to virtually shop. And if Madame Malkins Robes for All Occasions isn’t fashion, Merlin’s beard, I don’t know what is. Oh, and Emma Watson aka Hermione Granger is werqing it on the cover of Vogue. Fashion. Bam! Inside, she talks about her life after Harry Potter, and isn’t that just what Pottermore is?
