BAFTA Awards 2014 Plus Red Carpet Fashion News – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 18 May 2014

Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly at 2014 BAFTAsBAFTA Awards 2014 Plus Red Carpet Fashion News – tonight saw the annual British Academy of Film and Television Awards, better known as the BAFTAs.

They were hosted by talk show host Graham Norton and held at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

The big winner of the night was Broadchurch, with the ITV series picking up a total of 3 BAFTAs for Best Drama, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. Olivia Coleman is turning into something of a BAFTA specialist as her Best Actress award followed her 2 award triumph last year. As last year  the actress seemed very emotional following the win and apologised for crying saying “Sorry, not cool!”

Another show that did well this year was The IT Crowd, which finished its 4-series run last year, picking up both the Best Male and Best Female Comedy Performance awards. Katherine Parkinson, who plays Jen in the series, has also appeared in an episode of Sherlock recently and has picked up something of a geek fanbase. Richard Ayoade, who plays Moss said that he hoped his award would inspire “other nasal men with no facial expression”.

The special award this year went to Cilla Black for her 50-year long show biz career and this year’s Fellowship was awarded to Julie Walters in recognition of her outstanding contribution to tv and movies, Read the rest of this entry »

Dynasty Actress Kate O’Mara Dies Aged 74 – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 30 March 2014

Kate O'Mara shows cleavage in plunge front dressDynasty Actress Kate O’Mara Dies Aged 74 – actress Kate O’Mara died today at the age of 74 after a short illness.

She is best-known for playing the part of Cassandra “Caress” Morrell, Alexis Colby’s sister in the hit 80’s US series Dynasty. Joan Collins who played her on-screen sister in the show said today on Twitter ‘Tragic news about Kate O Mara , we had great fun on Dynasty when she played my sister Caress who Alexis insisted on calling CASSIE ! RIP.’

As well as the part in Dynasty Kate O’Mara played a host of similar style characters on UK television through the 70’s 80’s and 90’s. She specialised in a certain hard but sexy vampy type of woman who men found themselves both attracted to and also more than a little scared by. She also appeared in Doctor Who during the 80’s playing the part of the Rani, a Queen-lime Time Lord who was the Doctor’s main enemy in 2 stories, The Mark of the Rani and Time and the Rani.

Probably her busiest decade for UK tv work was the 1970’s when she featured in The Brothers (Jane Maxwell), as well as a number of one-off roles in classic 70’s shows such as The Persuaders, Jason King, Return of the Saint and The Protectors. These were followed by what is seen as probably one of the worst soaps ever shown in the UK, the ill-fated Triangle. This was set in the less than glamorous world of a North Sea ferry and amongst many unusual moments once had O’Mara sunbathing topless on the front deck of the ferry in view of the crew.

Another 80’s series she appeared in was Howard Way, which also had a nautical theme and in that show, which was in many ways a follow-on from The Brothers, she played the hard-nosed businesswoman Laura Wilde. Although the show got poor critical reviews it was nonetheless a ratings favourite and ran from 1985 until 1990, clocking up almost 80 episodes. Read the rest of this entry »

The Most Desirable Woman In The World Is.. – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 12 February 2014

Emelia Clarke - 2014's Most Desirable Woman

Emelia Clarke – 2014’s Most Desirable Woman

The Most Desirable Woman In The World Is.. – the winner of AskMen’s Most Desirable Woman Poll for 2014 is Emelia Clarke from the tv series Game of Thrones.

The 26-year old English actress plays the part of Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, in the HBO fantasy series. Her character starts off as a meek and mild young woman whose father was the king before being overthrown in an uprising. As the series goes on Daenerys finds her strength and confidence increasing and becomes a powerful warrior princess.

Emilia has done very little other work apart from Game of Thrones so we know where her fanbase lies. Game of Thrones has become a hugely popular series worldwide and has seemed to pick up a similar demographic as series such as Star Trek and Doctor Who with the majority of hardcore fans being males over the age of 30.

Despite all of her high-profile shock twerking and nudity Miley Cyrus only just scraped into the list, coming in at a lowly 99th place. Although not having anything like the profile Countdown star and recent Strictly competitor, Rachel Riley made it to 92 on the list. Another Strictly class of 2013 girl, Susanna Reid, made it onto the list in 81st position. Susanna actually beat both Selena Gomez (89) and KIm Kardashian who we are guessing will not be thrilled to have only got to 87 in the poll.

Nigella Lawson was obviously not harmed by her recent troubles as far as the AskMen readers are concerned with the very yummy mummy celebrity chef placing at 70. Read the rest of this entry »

Rosamund Pike To Play Lady Penelope In New Thunderbirds Series – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 30 September 2013

Rosamund Pike shows her nipples through dress fabric. Lady Penelope. Bond girl. Posh totty.

Rosamund Pike To Play Lady Penelope In New Thunderbirds Series – it was announced today that the former Bond girl will be playing the part of upper-class Thunderbirds agent Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward in the new series of the classic 60’s animation.

The new series, to be called Thunderbirds Are Go!, is being made by Weta Workshop, the team behind Avatar and the Lord of the Rings so expectations are high from fans of the original series.

Lady Penelope was always a favourite in the original 60’s shows and her posh lines were voiced by Sylvia Anderson, the wife of Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson who died in December last year. as Sylvia is no longer available to take on the voicework the shows’ producers were looking for someone with the necessary ‘posh totty’ sound and unsurprisingly came up with the name of Rosamund Pike.

As well as her role as Miranda Frost in the 2002 Bond movie Die Another Day, Rosamund is well-known for other movies such as An Education, Made In Dagenham and last year’s Jack Reacher.

The only original cast member from the 32 episodes of the 1960’s animated series who is returning for the new production is David Graham who is reprising his role as Lady Penelope’s ex-con chauffeur Parker. The character is defined by the term loveable rogue and his time and experiences on the wrong side of the law are often put to good use saving lives. His catch phrase of “Yus, M’Lady’ is almost certain to feature in the new series. Read the rest of this entry »

TV Choice Awards – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 10 September 2013

Lucy Watson from Made In Chelsea with open front dress showing legs and stocking topsTV Choice Awards – this year’s TV Choice Awards took place last night at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

As ever the most hotly contested category was that of Best Soap and this year it was ITV’s Coronation Street that took away the prize beating its big BBC soap rival Eastenders.

The ITV soap did not have things all its own way however as although Michelle Keegan took home the BEst Soap Actress award for her role as Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street the other 2 soap awards of the evening went the way of BBC’s Eastenders. Shane Richie won the Best Soap Actor award for playing the part of Alfie Moon while the Best Soap Newcomer award went to David Witts who plays the part of Joey Branning.

It was a good night for sci-fi favourite Doctor Who, which took home the awards for both Best Drama Series and also the 2013 Outstanding Contribution Award.

Best Talent Show went to Britain’s Got Talent which was represented by judge Amanda Holden who looked very classy in a classic LBD. She was one of a number of stars who went for a black number for the evening although some of the styles were less classic and less successful than others.

2 of the Made In Chelsea girls went the black dress route with Binky Felstead going for a fairly traditional long dress while Lucy Watson wore a far more unusual outfit which has a completely open front to the long dress exposing the tops of her stockings.

One of the most attractive outfits of the night came from Hollyoaks actress Claire Cooper who wore a dramatic long black gown with a plunging black lace front. Read the rest of this entry »

70-year old Britt Ekland in low cut sequin top at Emmy AwardsDaytime Emmy Awards, Winners and Red Carpet Fashions – the big winner at this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards was long running NBC soap Days of Our Lives.

The soap, which started in 1965, beat off strong competition from last year’s winner General Hospital and the strongly fancied The Bold and the Beautiful to take the top prize for the first time since 1978.

Star Wars fans will be delighted that George Lucas picked up an Emmy (his first) for his animated tv series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The presentation was something of a reunion as he was handed the Emmy by none other than Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher.

The award show, which came from the Beverly Hilton Hotel, also provided another award for former Doctor Who David Tennant who took home the prize for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Show for his role voicing the   part of the droid Huyang.

The award ceremony did not run as smoothly as the organisers would have hoped as when presenter Aisha Tyler opened the envelope to find out the winner of the Best Talk Show – Informative category she was left looking at a name that wasn’t even in that category. She managed to make light of the whole thing and she was quickly handed the correct envelope to reveal the actual winner as The Dr Oz Show. Read the rest of this entry »
