Trivia There was a controversy surrounding Pia Zadora's win of the Golden Globe for "Best New Star of the Year" - 1982 was the only year the event included such category with both men and women competing it on the same run; previously the Golden Globes had a distinction between New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture - Female and New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture - Male. This movie and her expensive advertising campaign for the award were financed by then husband Meshulam Riklis, who invited several members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to an expensive trip to Las Vegas to enjoy Riklis hotels, casino and the spectacular live shows. 1983 was the last year the New Star category was used (just like in its original format) and later on was discontinued.
