As we look forward to the multitude of possibilities in 2009, it's important to keep in mind that the future, while exciting, is difficult to predict. We can approach our goals with a carefully plotted precision, but even in the most calculated circumstances, sometimes things go horribly wrong. Take late night talk shows for example. The hosts do their best to keep the shows funny while maintaining the standards and practices enacted by the FCC, but that doesn’t mean they always maintain control. Sometimes the proverbial “crap” simply hits the fan.
The Lincoln Center in New York City was definitely the place to be last night. Glamour’s Women of the Year 2007 was in the house, and some big names showed up for the festivities.
Abigail Breslin was named the first ever Girl of the Year. She’s been a huge hit ever since “Little Miss Sunshine” made its way into theaters. And with the success of “No Reservations,” Breslin is on her way to a serious career in film.
It was a good night for men. Spike TV honored the entertainment world with their first annual “Guys Choice” awards, and Tracy Morgan was there to host the night. While the show doesn’t air until June 13th, the winners were announced Saturday night (June 9) to the delight of men everywhere.
Adam Sandler was recognized as the ultimate “Guy Guy,” while his favorite band of all time, STYX performed “Renegade.” The “Best Guy Movie of All Time” went to Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau for “Swingers.”
