Twilight did well at the MTV awards

Ok, am I the only one stupidly excited about the New Moon trailer?  I mean, the film will be awful, just like Twilight was, but as I’m a bona fide loony fan of the books, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, I still can’t wait to see it.

First of all, let me point out once again why I love Kristen.


Awkward but totally gorgeous and not afraid to opt for comfort on the red carpet.  I like that she does her own thing.

The film managed to scoop loads of awards, with both Kristen and Rob getting best male and female actor and they also got one for best screen kiss which they pretended to reenact:


Sigh.  Lucky, lucky girl.

Sacha Baron Cohen sat on Eminem and he didn’t like it

Sacha Baron Cohen adapted his Bruno persona to make a grand entrance to the MTV awards, in which he was lowered into the audience and landed on Eminem, arse on face.


Eminem didn’t see the funny side and stormed off.  Genius.  Absolute genius.  So, so wrong, but I think Sacha is hilarious.

I wonder whether Eminem was just pretending to be hacked off about it- surely they must have warned him beforehand?  And isn’t he usually the first one to engage in a bit of horseplay?  

Anyway, I laughed.



Why does Hollywood have to take everything that’s good and shit all over it?

Ok, please bear with me as this may be somewhat of an self-indulgent post, but they are threatening to remake Drop Dead Fred, which was one of my most favourite childhood films ever!

They want Russell Brand to play the part of Fred, the insane imaginary friend.  NO! No no no no no no!!!!!  Words can’t express how much I hate this idea!

That role was MADE for Rik Mayall (who, by the way, I have been secretly in love with since the age of about eight.  Beat that for a weird crush).  Rik Mayall and no one else.  It would be like someone other than Tim Curry playing Frank ‘N Furter in the Rocky Horror Picture Show  (which I’m sure will be rehashed and ruined at some point as well.)

I’m sorry, but no matter how funny and quirky they are or how silly their hair is,  no one else can EVER be Drop Dead Fred in my book.   Ever.

Could Freida Pinto be the new Angelina?


Woah.  Unknown model to starring in an Oscar-winning movie and gracing the cover of Vogue in the space of a few months is pretty good going.

When I saw Slumdog Millionaire (which, by the way, I think is fantastic) I was rather taken aback by how gorgeous Freida is.  Could she be the next Angelina Jolie?  She’s already been snapped up for Woody Allen’s next film, so her career seems to be going from strength to strength. 

She also had that strange secret engagement that she recently broke off, amidst rumours that she’s dating co-star Dev Patel (utter rubbish in my opinion) … so it looks like her love-life will be under the spotlight as much as Angelina’s has. 

She seems like a sweet girl, so I hope she’s prepared for fame and the repercussions that can come with it.

Is The Dark Knight cursed?

Oh no.  Morgan Freeman has been in a car accident.  The 71-year-old was rushed to hospital and apparently is in a serious condition.  An unnamed woman was in the car with him.

I hate the sickening irony of posting this story, considering what I named my blog.

I really hope Morgan pulls through this OK.  He’s just one of those people that is very likeable.  Like everyone’s lovable but extremely cool grandad.  He was in the last two films I saw at the cinema (Wanted and The Dark Knight) and I thought he was superb in both – in fact he’s always great.  He even pulled off playing God in that rubbish film Bruce Almighty.

This is definitely going to start ‘curse’ gossip about The Dark Knight though. You know, like Poltergeist and Amityville Horror, where everyone connected to the film had nasty stuff happen to them.  First Heath Ledger died, then Christian Bale got in trouble with the law and compromised his reputation, and now this?  If I was a cast member of that film I’d be rocking back and forth in a locked room by now.

But seriously.  I was actually planning to write about the film, but in a more positive light, because Heath’s acting 100 percent blew. Me. Away.  The guy has to get an Oscar.  And no, I’m not saying that just because he’s dead.  You don’t see people saying that Anna Nicole Smith was actually quite a good actress, so why would people say it about Heath for the hell of it?  The man was seriously, seriously talented.  And so is Morgan.

Please recover quickly Morgan!  We’re all thinking of you.
