The Screen Actors Guild Awards, or SAG Awards, are being held this weekend. Many nominees at the SAG Awards haven't been nominated for the previous or upcoming awards shows, which raises the question: Who votes for SAG nominees?
The Golden Globes were this past week, but Awards and Super Bowl season has only just begun. The size and scale of the parties and fetes this time of year may not be as big as the holidays (thankfully!), but it can still be every bit as fun, chic and decadent.
I have high hopes for the 2016 awards season. By collectively raising our expectations -- of celebrities and of one another as a society -- we can use this moment to drive strategic, meaningful and memorable philanthropy.
Each year thousands of awards are handed out to the rich and famous by guilds, "The Academy" and other prestigious groups. The nominees are usually deserving of the awards, but occasionally we're left scratching our heads as to "how X got left out," or "why Y should not have won."
December has dawned and with it have come the lists. Site & Sound kicked it off with their Best Films (International Division), and then the Independent Spirit nominees followed, and then the National Board of Review, and then, and then, and then.
People don't talk that way, even brilliant people. And, for the most part, they're not going to shout vitriol back and forth across a conference hall while many are watching them tear each other apart.
Great storytelling -- whether it's a new play, a television spot or a speech -- is all about creating an emotional connection with the audience. Storytelling is elevated by great writers and great storytellers.
The nominations for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards are announced July 10 and like a kid writing his Christmas list for Santa Claus, I have been thinking about who I most wish to see receive an Emmy nomination come Thursday morning.
The Golden Globes kicked off our 2014 pop culture season, so I kicked off my marketing Twitter party season as well. During the awards show, we all jump onto Twitter and comment about the brand marketing, and a whole bunch of other stuff along the way.
A few weeks ago, one of the major local TV networks asked me to contribute to post-Golden Globes red carpet commentary. I responded with some parameters. I insisted on a positive spin. I was disappointed when they declined to bring me on. But not surprised.
I used to anticipate the Toronto International Film Festival (or TIFF, as it were) with something approaching glee. But as I prepare to head north on Sunday, I feel, well, not dread or even trepidation -- I guess resignation is the word I'm looking for.
call this makeup "You Only Better Makeup," and whether you're heading to your own red carpet event or the closest you're getting to a carpet is the one in your living room, this is makeup you can wear and love and feel great in.
While much of the hoopla at the Writers Guild Awards was focused on the film nominees as a ramp up to Oscars, the category most associated with the fastest growing medium on earth went largely unnoticed. And Michael Cyril Creighton was crowned king of that world.
