Taylor Swift Big MTV VMA Winner

NEW JERSEY—It has been quite some time since I last recall watching MTV. The network is nothing like it used to be let’s say 10 years ago. However, I tuned in Monday, August 26 to watch the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. With Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift leading the pack of all nominees with 10 nominations apiece including...

Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande Dominate VMA Nominations

NEW YORK—The nominees for the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards were announced on Tuesday, July 23 and leading the pack of all contenders were two pop divas. Both Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande each earned 10 nominations apiece including Video of the Year. Not far behind was Billie Eilish who picked up nine nominations followed by Lil Nax X...

Cardi B Wins Big At BET Awards

LOS ANGELES—I honestly did not think there was an awards show that could be longer than the Academy Awards, but the 2019 BET Awards was certainly going for a record. The ceremony almost clocked in at 4 hours long, but actually wrapped up about 20 minutes shy of hitting that mark. The annual ceremony celebrating 18 years this year...

“Avengers: Endgame” Big MTV Movie Awards Winner

SANTA MONICA—The awards show that is mostly voted on by fans was held over the weekend. No, I’m not talking about the Oscars, not the Grammys, not the Tony Awards; I’m referring to the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards. The ceremony was hosted by “Shazam!” star Zachary Levi and I must say the guy was hilarious. He had a...

“Hadestown” Big Tony Awards Winner

NEW YORK—The biggest night in theater and Broadway as some call it came to a pinnacle on Sunday, June 9, as the 73rd Tony Awards were handed out from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. “The Late Late Show” host James Corden was the master of ceremonies as the night kicked off with you guessed it: song...

Stagecoach Rocks

INDIO—The definition of country music in 2019 is hard to pinpoint-a perfect example of this evolution was last weekend's Stagecoach Festival, April 26-28, at the Polo Grounds which was the most eclectic Stagecoach ever. Rock stars, superstar DJs and Billy Ray Cyrus playing a hip-hop tune, our notion of what country music is, has changed before our eyes. The headliners were...

“Green Book” Wins Big At Oscars!

HOLLYWOOD—It has arrived, the end of awards season culminated with the 2019 Academy Awards known by many as the Oscars. Going into the night the movies “Roma” and “The Favourite” led all contenders with 10 nominations apiece including Best Picture. However, with NO clear front-runner in the mix, it was a night full of twists and surprises just like...

Kacey Musgraves Huge Grammy Award Winner

LOS ANGELES—Believe it or not, awards season is starting to wind down. On Sunday, February 10, the 61st annual Grammy Awards were handed out at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This is a ceremony that is more about musical performances than actual awards. I think last year only 10 awards were handed out during an almost 4-hour ceremony....

Courtney Love Accused Of Kidnapping Plot

WEST HOLLYWOOD—Singer Courtney Love, 54, is being sued by her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain's ex-husband, Isaiah Silva. The lawsuit involves an alleged attack on Silva in June 2016 at his home. According to the initial complaint filed in May 2018, Love, celebrity manager Osama Lufti, and actor Ross Butler conspired to kidnap and kill Silva in an attempt to take...

“Roma,” Big Winner At Critics’ Choice Awards

HOLLYWOOD—Last Sunday it was the Hollywood Foreign Press that spoke during the Golden Globes, and this week it’s the critics who had their say. The 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards were handed out on Sunday, January 13. The ceremony was hosted by actor Taye Diggs, and the more that I think about it, it has become a major realization:...
