Out the Dior: Did Natalie Portman get Galliano fired?

Designer John Galliano went from suspended to fired at fashion house Dior after a 2010 video in which he said “I love Hitler” went public Monday, and Oscar winner Natalie Portman later declared herself “shocked and disgusted” by his words.

“In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish,” Portman said in a statement Tuesday, “I will not  be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way.” The “Black Swan” star is the face of the Miss Dior Cherie fragrance.

I hope she gets the Oscar curse! I know she was the fav but just did not want to give it to her. Hated that movie.

Golden Globe Red Carpet: Will it be what was she wearing or what was she thinking? Before the show there will be an hour-long red carpet special. You can add your comments here. What you like, what worked, who worked it and how the hotties keep it hot. We want to hear from you. The look this awards season is the off-the-shoulder long gown, pastel color. It works well for most figures and faces. In my comments below I’ve noted the “what was she thinking” candidates. Jesse Eisenberg just pulled up in the limo. He was also in Holy Rollers this year. He played an orthodox Jew who does some illegal and orthodox drug running using other orthodox Jews. Strategy: customs will never suspect the religious. Good film, no Network but worth a look on streaming Netflix.

Shock and awe?  The mention of The Tourist in category for best musical or comedy is shocking IMO. But it did not come out of the blue but out of the mind of director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. After a pre-screening others agreed that the film was preposterous enough for billing as a comedy. The critics were not so kind and it barely garnered one star/five. They talked me out of seeing it.

Halle Berry’s inclusion as nominee for best actress in a drama might be seen as either awe or awful idea. Her film Frankie and Alice had a limited release at the end of 2010 and will be widely released February 2011. That’s why it made the 2010 cut. However, some blacks are already razzed-up about the mere thought that another award could come for a movie that “exposes” Miss Berry. The woman she portrays is mentally unbalanced and works as a stripper, so Halle bares T&A naturally.

Any sweep predictions? That may be hard to divine. Best bet: The King’s Speech might leave the audience speechless. The Oscar buzz begins tonight. So in that sense there are no losers. Because the Golden Globe nods will put them on the Academy’s red carpet win or lose.

OTT White-Hot Anger: blacklash over god in Thor

Just found evidence of this little hornet’s nest brewing among white-whites and non-whites (you don’t know who you are LOL) or cousins:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2010/dec/17/white-supremacists-boycott-thor Source:

A US white supremacist group has called for a boycott of the Kenneth Branagh-directed superhero movie Thor on the grounds that a black actor has been cast in the role of a Norse god.

  1. Thor
  2. Production year: 2011
  3. Country: UK
  4. Directors: Kenneth Branagh
  5. Cast: Anthony Hopkins, Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Tom Hiddleston
  6. More on this film

 

The Council of Conservative Citizens is upset that London-born Idris Elba, star of The Wire and BBC detective series Luther as well as a number of Hollywood films, is to play deity Heimdall in the Marvel Studios feature. The group, which opposes inter-racial marriage and gay rights, has set up a website, boycott-thor.com to set out its opposition to what it sees as an example of leftwing social engineering.

The liberal powergrabbing left is at it again. This time with the likes of a black panther LOL. End of true whiteness in the world  for sure. If you are not blonde and blue eyed and of n. European stock then you ain’t white you are something else. What else not sure. Anthropologists don’t distinguish between what white supremists call the “nigger” variants, the swarthy ones.  Can’t wait to see how this boycott turns out. I don’t think it will kill the movie. But whites say they are opposed to Thor not because of the black god but because the film is actually anti-white. Imagine that?

Natalie Portman Pregnant w/ Millipied baby

Natalie Portman an Israeli/American/Austrian roots is pregnant with a French dancer name Millipied. That’s a strange name and in French means a thousand feet. My guess is that this is a created name to hide his own German Jewish roots. But she is Jewish and has European genes and hollywood loves to promote Jewish women who don’t look Jewish or want to be associated with their MOT rootedness.

With a name like Benjamin Millipied he’s got to be Jewish: My guess is that he has some french Jewishness in his background.  Some of her people did not escape the gas chambers as the holocaust was big in Austria as anywhere else also France. So, I am not buying at this time that her guy is not at least in part Jewish especially since he is a classical dancer. They met on the set of Black Swan which I don’t really plan to see anytime soon.

MEET THE (Port) MAN:

Natalie Portman gave Christmas-coma-induced celebrity watchers and fans a shock Monday when she announced that she’s pregnant and engaged to Black Swan co-star Benjamin Millepied.So just who is the man who stole Portman’s heart?

 He’s a 33-year-old French-born principal dancer at the New York City Ballet who choreographed the ballet scenes in the psychological thriller, for which Portman is garnering Oscar buzz.PHOTOS: Lots of Natalie Portman picsWhen doing press for the film, the mere mention of Millepied’s name to Portman triggered an automatic response: “I never talk about my private life.”
