The Oprah Winfrey produced film Precious that Oprah and Tyler Perry produced, which stars singing diva and actress, Mariah Carey, picked up The Peoples Choice Award in Toronto, over the weekend.

Mariah Carey plays a school guidance counsellor in a raw film about an abused teen named Precious.
Precious is based on the novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire. More proof that books being turned into movies is the way to go. The win for “Precious” follows on from the film’s Sundance Film Festival win where the touching movie won the grand jury and audience awards, respectively.
Piers Handling, co-director of the Toronto festival, said: ”I think people want to see real stories about real people

Oh dear… blogger Perez Hilton (real name, Mario Lavandeira) does not understand the meaning of the word assualt.
The blogger, who cried wolf for “mad attention” at a major music industry award in Canada, wrongly accusing music producer/ music artist, Will I Am, of The Black Eyed Peas for assaulting him… still has not offered Will I Am an apology for lying via twitter.

Recently George W.Bush joked publicly with Bill Clinton in Toronto, that looking like a “George W.Bush look-a-like” does not fare well in his favor these days in his home town of Dallas Texas.
Well imagine if you looked like Bernie Madoff?
For Paul Cohen, his uncanny likeness to Bernie Madoff has paid off for the 64 year-old, Jersey City man. Edmund Druilhert put out a casting call for a docudrama, “Madoff: Made Off With America.” Mr Cohen auditioned (ie: turned up) and landed the role. Says Druilhert, “[Cohen] had the best lips.

“Welcome to the Bill and George Show” was how George W. Bush introduced his guest appearance to 5,000 people in Toronto with fellow former President, Bill Clinton.

“A fellow walked up and said,’Hey, has anybody ever told you look like George W. Bush?’ I said, ‘It happens all the time.’ He said, ‘It sure must make you mad.’”
Nice to see Bush has got a sense of humor. It helps! (more…)
