In her new role role, the 16-year-old will align herself with a nonprofit organization of her choosing and work to raise awareness, and she will also help to hand out the trophies at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards. The ambassador role was created by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association

This Year's "Miss Golden Globe" is... Isan Elba

by Nathaniel R

Yes, yes. The title is now technically "Golden Globe Ambassador" but we like the campier original title "Miss." It's more befitting to the unholy tradition of Hollywood celebrities sacrificing their children to the HFPA in ritualistic gene-pool exhibition. 

Kim and Idris Elba's daughter Isan is the new ambassador and does plan to go into showbusiness though she's waffling between acting and directing. Isan and Idris's statements are after the jump...

Stan Lee: The Marvel Cinematic Universe Says Farewell to a Legend

Mike Cecchini Nov 13, 2018

Stan Lee has died at the age of 95, and actors and creators from across the Marvel Universe are saying goodbye.

The death of Stan Lee has essentially brought the internet to a halt. The Marvel figurehead and legendary writer/editor co-created dozens of the most recognizable, iconic, and marketable characters of the last 60 years. While Lee was an early adopter of the idea that comic book superheroes could and should thrive in other media, it seems unlikely that even he could have envisioned the kind of runaway success that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has enjoyed over the last decade, taking superheroes (and specifically Marvel superheroes) from a niche genre to one of the most dominant forces in all of pop culture.

With his passing has come a tremendous outpouring of support from the writers, directors, actors, and artists who have brought the creations of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby,

Tom Hiddleston Said To Be Odds-On Favorite To Play James Bond Next

The James Bond camp has been awfully quiet ever since Danny Boyle shocked us all by exiting the project – it seems we have creative differences to thank for that one – but things are still moving along, as the Powers That Be over at Eon recently hired Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) to take the lead on Bond 25 and replace Boyle.
