Golden Globe winners… “FABLife” looking for a replacement… Jason Statham’s engagement… Sean Penn’s El Chapo interview… and David Bowie has passed away
If you couldn’t sit up for the Golden Globes, here are some of the big winners from last night. Best actors in a Motion Picture, Drama went to Leonardo DiCaprio for “The Revenant” and Brie Larson for “Room.” “The Revenant” also won for Best Motion Picture, Drama. Acting awards for Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy went to Matt Damon for “The Martian” and Jennifer Lawrence for “Joy.” And “The Martian” won Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.
In the world of TV, it was all about the shows you’ve never seen or heard of before! “Mr. Robot” won Best TV Series, Drama and “Mozart in the Jungle” won Best TV Series, Musical/Comedy.
“FABLife” isn’t exactly killing it in the ratings, but they’ve been holding their own since Tyra Banks left. According to TMZ, producers are thinking the show has a good chance of clicking with viewers if they can find the right replacement for Tyra. Among the names being considered are Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum, Christina Milian, Sherri Shepherd, Rocco DiSpirito, Tori Spelling and Kiki Palmer. TMZ says most of those on the list have expressed interest in the gig, and that Giuliana Rancic would be interested in serving as guest host until a decision is made on the permanent host.
Congratulations to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham, who announced their engagement at the Golden Globes when she showed up wearing a big old diamond. These two have dated for over five years. He’s 48; she’s 28.
The day after El Chapo was recaptured by Mexican authorities, Sean Penn’s interview with the drug kingpin was published by “Rolling Stone.” Mexican authorities say that Sean’s contacts with El Chapo helped them track down the fugitive, who wanted to talk to Sean because he wants a movie made about his life.
So sad to wake up this morning and find out that David Bowie has passed away after an 18-month battle with cancer that he chose to keep private. David released his 25th album, “Blackstar,” on January 8, which was his 69th birthday. He passed away two days later. David is survived by his wife of 25 years, Iman, their 15-year-old daughter, Lexi, and his son Duncan Jones — who used to go by Zowie Bowie back in the day.
