Award season 2011 includes strong nominees, surprise snubs

Now that both the People’s Choice and Critics’ Choice Awards are behind us, award season is in full swing and some nominees have a chance of top honors at multiple ceremonies.  According to E! Online, Colin Firth and Natalie Portman won Critics’ Choice best actor and actress for their respective roles in “The King’s Speech” and “Black Swan.”  The best movie award went to “The Social Network,” hinting at what it could do throughout the rest of the award season.  The special effects-filled “Inception,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, was also nominated for best picture awards at both the Critics’ Choice and Golden Globes, according to VH1 and Golden Globes website.  DiCaprio is noted as a three-time Oscar nominee over the years on IMDB, but this doesn’t look to be his year.  E! Online lists him as one of the surprise award snubs for his work in “Shutter Island” as well as “Inception.”  As for the Oscars, an article on Moviefone provides a few predictions on this year’s nominees.

Online.  As a powerhouse pop star, Stefani has had many different looks since her time with No Doubt to the present.  So it comes as no surprise to see recognition through a major cosmetics brand offering her this opportunity to represent them.  Stars with many different and original looks can easily be seen as fashion and beauty icons by those in relevant industries.
