NEW YORK — Thunder bolt and lightning rocked the 76th Golden Globes where a string of upsets culminated with the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” winning best picture, drama, over another movie about musicians: Bradley Cooper’s much more heavily favored “A Star Is Born.” “A Star Is Born” came into Sunday’s ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, as the presumed heavyweight and Oscar favorite. But Cooper’s remake went home with just one award, for the song “Shallow.” Instead, the night’s final two awards went to “Bohemian Rhapsody” — the popular but poorly reviewed drama about Queen’s frontman, a movie that wrapped after jettisoning its director, Bryan Singer — and best actor-winner Rami Malek for his full-bodied, prosthetic teeth-aided performance as Mercury. “Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime,” said … [Read more...] about Mamma Mia! ‘Rhapsody’ upsets ‘Star Is Born’ at Globes
NEW YORK (AP) — In a Golden Globes chock full of upsets, the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” took best picture, drama, over Bradley Cooper’s heavily favored “A Star is Born” and Glenn Close bested Lady Gaga for best actress. Few winners were seen as more certain than Lady Gaga as best actress in a drama at Sunday’s ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. But the veteran actress Close pulled off the shocker for her performance in “The Wife,” as the spouse of a Nobel Prize-winning author. Close said she was thinking of her mother, “who really sublimated herself to my father for her whole life.”“We have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams,” said Close, drawing a standing ovation. “We have to say I can do that and I should be allowed to do that.” Minutes later, the surprise was even greater when “Bohemian Rhapsody” won the … [Read more...] about ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Wins Big at Golden Globes, ‘Star Is Born’ Snubbed
John Carlisle Detroit Free Press Published 8:03 AM EST Dec 24, 2018 KEWEENAW PENINSULA – The view from Tom Chobanian’s house is a thick wall of trees. It wasn’t always, though. “There used to be nothing but whorehouses here,” said the wiry 29-year-old, pointing into the woods, recounting family memories. “This used to have 600 people. They had their bars right here, and, right here, there used to be nothing but wood stacked up. Lumber." Chobanian lives in Donken, an Upper Peninsula town that isn’t really a town anymore. More than a century ago, the Case Lumber Mill stood here, and a whole town was built around it, named by the mill owner for his sons — Donald and Kenneth. It had a schoolhouse, a post office, a company store, a main street and, according to local lore, a few places where lumberjacks could unwind and get wild. But decades after the mill closed, Donken slowly vanished. Now it's just a brief interruption in a … [Read more...] about For select few in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, a ghost town is home
0 Have your say RETAIL giants have this week been blaming the internet for the demise of the high street. Controversial Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley went so far as to tell a Parliamentary select committee that traditional shopping streets are “already dead” and would be extinct by 2030. While armchair shopping isn’t innocent, this correspondent disagrees…It’s easy to blame the worldwide web but if we rewind ten, 20, or even 30 years – to a time before baskets were routinely filled via computer keyboards – it was town planners and councillors who sowed the seeds of the high street’s current demise.Kate Hardcastle on why retail lessons of the past show way forward for the High Street’s futureRather than tackle city centre hot potatoes like parking, rateable values and transport, many authorities seemed to adopt an out-of-sight-out-of-mind attitude and the carbuncle of modern retail parks was born. What did … [Read more...] about Sarah Todd: How out-of-town retail parks are turning York into a ghost town – and why the rest of the high street should be worried
