So our STAR OF 2009 poll has just finished and Lady Gaga has won the flattering tittle with 50% of your votes, followed by Sam Worthington with 20% and Beyonce and James Cameron with 15% of all votes.
Lady Gaga came onto the music scene like a breath of fresh air in 2009, bringing creativity and art into the mediocre pop scene. With her mega successful hits "Just Dance", "Poker Face", "Paparazzi, "Lovegame", "Bad Romance", "Alejandro" ... she ruled 2009 and it looks like she's not going to give over her throne in 2010 either. She has managed to convince the world that being weird, unusual and unique isn't a bad but a good thing.
Since February is the month when love is in the air, when you give your hearts to your loved ones packed in a box of chocolates or wrapped in a bouquet of roses, I've thought it would be a good idea to have love as the theme of our next poll. What's the best romantic movie you've ever seen. The list of options consists of the movies which always make me believe in love, in the power of good, in the strength of kindred hearts. So here are the candidates, and if you haven't seen some of them, you should, trust me they all hide movie magic: MOULIN ROUGE (the spellbinding musical with Nicole and Ewan which makes you believe that love lifts us up where we belong), LOVE ACTUALLY (British classic teaching us that the best present to give and receive is a loving heart), SIMPLE IRRESISTIBLE (magical masterpiece with Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sean Patrick Flannery in which magic had opened their hearts and love did the rest), NEVER BEEN KISSED (the adorable love story between Drew Barrymore and Michael Vartan which says that love can never come too late), THE FOUNTAIN (deeply touching and profound love of Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz which tells us that to live forever is nothing if you cannot love forever), CORPSE BRIDE (for those of you weirdos out there, because love always rises to the occasion, sometimes even literally) , BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN (love is a force of nature), A WALK IN THE CLOUDS (Keanu Reeves and Aitana Sánchez show us how love can be found even when it seems such miracle will never fold its wings around you). You can give us your loving votes as many times as you like in next two weeks ;)
