Showbiz Top 5: Woody Allen’s Cecil B. Demille Award

Something is up with Pamela Anderson… Sean Penn donates 65 of his personal guns… Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin at the Golden Globes… “American Hustle” was the big winner at the Golden Globes… and Woody Allen’s Cecil B. Demille Award

I don’t know what’s going on with Pamela Anderson, but something is definitely up. First, she chopped off all of her hair, and now she’s gone and married Rick Salomon for the second time. The only thing Rick is really known for is for that sex tape he made with Paris Hilton, but he was also married to E.G. Daily from “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” and has a couple of kids with her. He married Shannen Doherty for a hot minute. And then he and Pamela were married in 2007, but that only lasted about 10 weeks before it was annulled. The two of them stayed friends, though, and started dating again last year. No details on when or where the wedding took place, but Pamela confirmed to E! that she they did get married.

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron went on vacation together to Hawaii over Christmas and they’ve been seen together running around LA, but they went public with their relationship Saturday night at his Help Haiti Home fundraiser at the Montage Hotel. Sean donated 65 guns from his personal collection to sculptor Jeff Koons, who agreed to create a piece of art from the weapons. Anderson Cooper paid $1.4 million for the soon-to-be-made piece. Sean told the audience that “a strong woman who happens to be from South Africa” had changed his mind about owning guns. When Charlize was a teenager, she witnessed her mother shoot and kill her own father in self-defense.

Also making a rare public appearance at Sean Penn’s fundraiser Saturday night were Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. They also attended the Golden Globes the following night. This is a HUGE deal because the two of them are never seen in public together, which totally leads me to believe that their marriage is in trouble.

American Hustle” was a big winner last night, winning Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Actress for Amy Adams and Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence. Best Motion Picture – Drama went to “12 Years a Slave,” while the dramatic acting awards went to Matthew McConaughey for “Dallas Buyers Club” and Cate Blanchett for “Blue Jasmine.” And it was nice to see Bryan Cranston — aka Walter White — take home Best Actor in a Drama TV Series, while “Breaking Bad” won for Best Drama TV Series. A few mouths dropped when Andy Samburg won a Golden Globe for his acting abilities on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which also won for Best Comedy TV Series.

Not everyone was thrilled that the Hollywood Foreign Press decided to honor Woody Allen with the Cecil B. Demille Award. Since Woody never attends awards ceremonies, Diane Keaton accepted it on his behalf. His personal life has been questionable, to say the least. Woody and Mia Farrow were together for 12 years. During that time, he served as a father to Mia’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi, but ended up leaving Mia to marry her!! Not only that, Woody was also accused of sexually abusing another one of the couple’s adopted daughters when she was only seven. So when it was time for Woody’s Golden Globes tribute, Mia tweeted, “Time to grab some ice cream & switch over to #GIRLS.” But Mia and Woody’s son, Ronan Farrow, was way more direct with his tweet. He wrote, “Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?” Woody hasn’t commented, but in the past he denied the allegations through his attorney.
