Blind Items Revealed #1

August 2, 2019

For the past few months, the permanent A list actress who is an Oscar winner/nominee has been willing to talk to me after a years long hiatus. This is not about her so much although she is the one who brought up the topic. We were talking about certain events that happen towards the end of the year and the public even has a term for it even though the culmination is not until late winter or early spring.

It starts now though. It starts now with an organization that has a get together and if you are invited, you better show up or get on their bad side forever. It is also the time of the year that members of this organization will start calling actresses for "dinner meetings." If you don't want to go, you better have a substitute. A former A+ list mostly movie actress all of you know went on a dozen of those dinner meetings which is why she gets nominated even in years she does't have a movie that necessarily qualifies time wise. There is a married A list dual threat actress who is also an Oscar winner/nominee who did the same thing for five or six years straight two decades ago and now has a younger actress she sends in her place. This all began because of this back in the day really bad actress. Like Tori Spelling bad. The actress took on five or six of these guys and the next thing you know she was bathed in glory. Since that time, everyone knew how to get ahead. Many many take advantage of it. Lest you think actors don't have to do anything, you would be wrong. They also have dinner meetings or have been known to have to attend children's birthday parties or be a co-host of a dinner party. This permanent A list mostly movie actor who has a movie out right now has done all of the above.

As for the Oscar winner/nominee who is talking to me again. She says she has been on a lot of dinners, but drew the line at after dinner activities.

Renée Zellweger
Organization: Hollywood Foreign Press Association
Former A+ list mostly movie actress: Angelina Jolie
Married A list dual threat actress: Nicole Kidman
Really bad actress: Pia Zadora 
Permanent A list mostly movie actor: Brad Pitt

Long Live the Roman Empire.

Of course they do. Fame it do have its price! How do these people sleep at night I wonder???

Do Tell said...

I can't believe anyone holds those sham Golden Globe awards in any sort of esteem enough to go through with any of this.

Guesser said...

DoTell,we know and Hollywood knows,but the general public think they are legit. And therefore,people will go to see the films. And,let's face it,other awards aren't much better.

MontanaMarriott said...

Funny I thought Pia's rich husband bought her the Golden Globe she received. But this goes along with the long standing rumor that PZ was a Madame Alex girl.

Bruno15 said...

And who is the younger actress that Nicole sends in her place?

sandybrook said...

I cant believe they are this Sunday night already. There must be one of these crapfests every Sunday from now until Oscar night I guess.

Do Tell said...

I don't think anyone with an interest in Hollywood respects the Golden Globes. I think most people think of them as akin to the People's Choice Awards, and the People magazine of the awards world.

cheesegrater15 said...

Aren't the Globes where the celebs get drunk?

cheesegrater15 said...

Just in time for sportsball.

sandybrook said...

Whoa I missed something here and so did everyone else: Brad Pitt took on 5 or 6 guys?? Says he did all of the above....

Moose said...

The Pia Zamora win for “Butterfly” was always said to have been bought by her then incredibly wealthy husband, Meshulam Riklis, who flew all the members of the HFPA to Vegas to see Zamora perform, comped them with rooms, food and casino chips, and gave them watches, jewelry and other goodies.

She beat Kathleen Turner (nominated for “Body Heat”) that year.

Zadora

MissDavie said...

As badly as it back fired on Pia Zadora back then, it seems that the Golden Globes would have stopped being a thing at all. They are a joke as it is. Everybody knows they are bought and sold and mean nothing.

Do Tell said...

No, in Brad's case it was likely with female execs, investors, Hollywood wives.

Troy Dyer said...

My first thought was J. Law for the younger actress, but after typing it out, I don’t think that is the case anymore...off to google!

TeeHee@U said...

Disgusting. And, agreed. How can any actor look themselves in the mirror after winning a GG knowing the people they sold out with themselves first and foremost.

It would be like if Judas melted his 30 pieces of silver into a statue to put it on display.


Good for Renee though. And, any other actress/ actor in Hollywood that refused to sell themselves for a stupid Gold Statue.

Guesser said...

@Moose,they saw her perform,not only sing. No bigwig is going to be swayed by normal comps.

momo said...

Yes I am unclear on the Pitt part in this. ANYONE?

Do Tell said...

And Pia did end up fairly successful with her cabaret/cruise ship/nightclub act. That's what Raquel Welch and Debbie Reynolds ended up doing at the end of their acting careers. There is a niche for everyone.

Derp said...

That’s why it will be so delicious to watch Ricky take them apart. Because those fame whores are still going to want to go and be front and center.

sandybrook said...

The general public believes it to be a prestigious award given by a prestigious organization. Even Pia Zadora got a couple of years of fame off winning it.

Moose said...

Thanks,@Guesser. “Perform” does have a number of meanings 😁

Moose said...

Anyone else remember a few years back when Zadora got arrested for beating up her teenage son because he wouldn’t go to bed?

Ah, good times.

Do Tell said...

I love Ricky Gervais, but I didn't like when he took a jab at RDJ regarding drug abuse that is long behind him.

ZZZedMaster said...

I've said it once and I'll say it again.The ones that make it to the top are the ones that have done the most 'activities' to get ahead.Both men and women even kids have to do 'stuff' in order to be successful in that part of the world.Which is why I shun them all.

Do Tell said...

Well, you do have child actors that make it big. I doubt that Jodie Foster, for example, ever played the game.

TeeHee@U said...

Jodie Fosters family mother and brother were in the entertainment industry. Much like Kristen Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow and countless other actors who have nepotism to thank for their Hollywood careers.

Not saying those withl the family in the business haven't slept their way to awards and higher fame, but, they always had the leg up and connections that an aspiring actress from say Iowa never did.

Do Tell said...

Jodie, Gwyneth, and Michael Douglas also are very, very talented. Celebrity connections do not guarantee success. Case in point: Rumer Willis.

Jnauis said...

so just for the stupid among us, does this mean that jolie sucked dick for awards? help me out.

Guesser said...

It does say Brad did the dinner party and show up at children's parties,remember,Pitt is a huge star and his presence is worth more to a bigwig than a less famous actress. MAYBE he put out in the early days, but having Brad next to you could just attract a higher class of women.

IndieRaga said...

What has Brad Pitt done...details plz !
Anyone.....

Dotty Settler said...

Love the bit “Like Tory Spelling bad”

longtimereader said...

So basically buy a male/female hooker and you are golden?

T. W. said...

People still think the Golden Globe Awards predict the Academy Award winners. I haven’t watched any of the shows since I was a teen.

T. W. said...

@cheesegrater15

Yes, they get drunk.

T. W. said...

I guess they have to take Golden showers on their Globes...

Sd Auntie said...

Now that is a crime. @moose. Poor Kathleen.

DarylsBigFan said...

All you do, Enty, is tell the same story.
Over and over again. With different players.
The couch and the rituals.
It is that simple.
A sick, disgusting industry.

Count Jerkula said...

Since it is for awards and not jobs, these guys cant get metooed, like Harvey, right?

Coming@uCrooked. said...

Women is the reason why women have such a hard time in the business.

Count Jerkula said...

Yep. That is why women invented slut shaming.

Veritas said...

She still hasn’t lived down that picture of her clinging to Harvey.
She already sold her soul to the devil

Bubbles said...

Guesser, and who are these "Bigwigs" of which you speak? HFPA is made up of just that, foreign journalists. An entertainment writer for a Polish paper or some journal in Argentina is far from a "Bigwig" and yes, they are very impressed by comps. I did award season marketing and if they weren't impressed, they wouldn't have it in their contracts that any screening done for HFPA members must be catered. If you're impressed by mini sliders and crab cakes I'm pretty sure being comped at a top Vegas hotel and given free money to gamble will more than sway you.

Monkeyweather said...

That and the odd Satanic ritual and a few thousand destroyed kids here and there? Welcome to Hollywood

Monkeyweather said...

Literally

They sleep naked
