omething that should have happened a long time ago has finally
happened yesterday: one of the best living actresses Kate Winslet
awarded CBE from English queen Elisabeth II. She received the title of
the Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire
services to drama yesterday in Buckingham Palace! Wearing an elegant
black knee length pencil skirt and a matching blazer, Kate talked with
the queen about the joys of motherhood while receiving the ordain.
Speaking to the journalists and reporters after the event, Winslet said:
"The sense of gravity is enormous and you very much feel you are being
acknowledged by the whole country in a way." Believe it or not, Kate won only one Oscar
so far (for her outstanding and deeply moving role in THE READER) but was nominated
five other times - for leading roles in LITTLE CHILDREN, TITANIC and
ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF A SPOTLESS
MIND, and for supporting roles in SENSE
AND SENSIBILITY and IRIS. She won three Golden Globes
wo trailers for you this Thanksgiving, people. First, you can check out the trailer for Dwayne Johnson'
s new action flick SNITCH
which is supposed to hit
cinemas next February. Also starring Susan Sarandon, Barry Pepper,
THE WALKING DEAD's John Bernthal
and Benjamin Bratt
, this 35 million dollars action movie, inspired by true events chronicled in a PBS Frontline documentary, follows a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission, risking everything, including his family and his own life.
airy tale epic adventure JACK THE GIANT SLAYER
is, after a very long delay, ready to start it's cinematic life next March and today you can see the second trailer which, unlike the first one we've seen earlier
this year, gives more action, more giants and more of the stunning sets. The film was supposed to open this summer, but was moved to next year in order to get 3D treatment and additional changes. Starring Ewan McGregor, Nicholas Hoult, Bill Nighy, Ian McShane, Stanley
Tucci and Eddie Marsan the movie is directed by Bryan Singer. JACK THE GIANT SLAYER tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between
our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them.
Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend, and gets the chance to become a legend himself.
Love Kate and Susan Sarandon! Have a great weekend, Dez!ReplyDelete
thanks, Gina, you too, hope you're having a nice Holiday!Delete
I'm so happy for Kate!! She is elegance itself in that pic and look at that arched eyebrow-ooooh so sexy and saucy she is.ReplyDelete
I'm home darling and not capable of much more than this. I'm fine, just sleeping mainly with my leg up.
So, lovely to hear from you, darling! I will send you a hunky pizza delivery guy to cheer you up ;)Delete
Rest, sleep, relax, you need it now, Annzie!
Hope everything went as planned.
I'm also extremely happy for Kate, some nice news to cheer you up!
They've finally got the fourth season of Merlin on Netflix!! I've almost watched the whole thing today and it was grand. I'll pop in when I'm able over the next couple of days.Delete
yeeppee! :) I should start watching the fifth season soon, I'm currently watching the second season of ONCE UPON A TIME.Delete
Take care of yourself, darling, and rest, and don't dance boogie no matter how much you want it :P Hope you're not in any pain :(
Yay for Kate. She really is one of the bravest actresses, unafraid to do whatever it takes to make her characters shine.ReplyDelete
And, ooh, I loved that clip for Jack the Giant Slayer!! Fun and full of adventure. :))
we are ever so happy for our dear Kate :) And she certainly is brave, her READER role is example of braveness!Delete
Glad you liked the clip, it's very epic!
How is your Thanksgiving cooking going on? :)
I actually did my Thanksgiving yesterday because some people had to work today. Not everyone gets the day off. :(Delete
But I'm enjoying leftovers today. You would not approve, but I cook my turkey in wine, butter, and herbs in a crock pot, and it comes out so delish. :))
you're not the only one among our blogging friends to have had Thanksgiving dinner yesterday :)Delete
Mmmmm. ... butter... I don't eat it... but I love it :)
and I've no idea what a crock pot is, but I don't know what slow cooker is either :)Delete
I wondered if that would get lost in translation. It's just a small electric cooking pot with a lid that sits on the countertop and takes all freaking day to cook, but everything comes out tender and delicious. :))Delete
And I think I went through a pound of butter cooking yesterday. LOL. It goes in everything when it's a holiday. :D
I was afraid it was a pot in which you keep crack :) (just kidding of course)Delete
We mostly use margarine here in my country, since butter is so expensive, but I do like its taste.
Jack looks goodReplyDelete
it's a better trailer than the first oneDelete
I wanna see Jack the Giant Killer! Looks sweetReplyDelete
glad you like it, Long Ding :)Delete
Kate Winslet looks smashing! Congrats to her -- a great honour for her and well deserved.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy for her, Debs! Hope Ewan and Jude get awarded too!Delete
Is it just me, or it Nicholas Hoult in just about everything these days? Like the look of Jack the Giant Slayer though :)ReplyDelete
well, it could be you :P since I haven't seen him in a lot of things lately... :)Delete
kate went from hot to hotter, though i think you know that, went to see 'life of pi' it was not the story of making pie... i was so disappointing... hope your day is swell, yeah i am bringing the word back... just like clark kent... in superman.ReplyDelete
yep, K/Cate Winslet, Blanchett, Zeta Jones, Beckinsale... we ain't complaining, just give us Cates!Delete
You mean the tiger didn't eat him like a pie? I'm all shocked.
Hooray for Kate! She is one of my very favorite actresses. I loved all of her movies.ReplyDelete
Both of these movies look incredible. You know how I love Dwayne and my fantasy epics.
Thanks for the holiday wishes. I had a lot of fun yesterday with my family. Have a great weekend!
we take Kate's success like it was our own :)Delete
Glad you had fun during holidays, Mel!
Dezzie darling, I loved the piece on Kate...she is so deserving of acknowledgement of her acting talent. I adored her in Sense and Sensibility (have my own copy). And you're so right, it's long overdue!ReplyDelete
Ta ta, darling (who doesn't love the English)
that is probably her only film I've never seen since I've declared a personal law which states that me will try to ignore the existence of Jane Austen :)Delete
