My Top 10 Best Dressed at the Met Gala 2018!!!

Yesterday was the opening of the Costume Institute Gala’s annual fashion exhibit with the theme  Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. Celebrities from all walks of the industry flock to the Met Gala to show off their best fashion ensemble and raise funds for the…well, the Institute. With that being said let me present to you my Top 10 Favorites this year and we’ve a lot of super-awesome outfits and costumes so trimming it down to 10 was super-difficult!

10. Rihanna, a co-host of this year’s Met Gala was wearing Maison Margiela Artisanal.

Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray for Preview.PH May 2018

Here’s my favorite and the reigning Miss Universe Philippines Catriona Gray gracing the digital cover of  Preview.PH’s May 2018 edition.

It has only been a month and a half since Catriona Gray was crowned Binibining Pilipinas-Universe but the internet is already abuzz with her fighting chance at this year’s Miss Universe pageant. Perhaps a fourth crown for the country at pageantdom’s most prestigious competition is all too soon—we had just won in 2015—but we’re not about to complain. Catriona, after all, goes far deeper than the aforementioned hype that surrounds her these days. Her dedication should not come as a surprise to anyone who’s seen her work at close range way before she became a full-fledged beauty queen. (s)

TimothĂ©e Chalamet’s Hot Summer Nights First Official Trailer!

Yay! It’s finally here! After his breakthrough performances via Call Me By Your Name and Lady Bird last year, Timmy’s upcoming movies are very much anticipated by fans and critics alike (including moi). One of them is Hot Summer Nights that premiered earlier last year at the South by Southwest (SXSW) and will be the first film by TimothĂ©e to come out this year. The coming of age film was directed by Elijah Bynum and also stars Maika Munroe (The Guest), Alex Roe (The 5th Wave) and Thomas Jane.

It will have it commercial release in the US on July 27, 2018!

Paddylast Inc’s Oscars 2018 Predictions!

It’s the time of the year again to give out the film’s highest honors in Hollywood and I’ve a feeling that there’ll be a bit of a surprise in what most assumed are already “locked” categories.

Best Picture:
This is going to be an easy pick for me. As much as I’d love for The Shape of Water to win this award, I’ve to give it to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. On a technical perspective and story-wise, The Shape of Water hands down wins this one but it feels like based on the most recent winners from this category, the voters tends to go to something that has a stronger and in-your face social impact. Three Billboards doesn’t have the subtlety Del Torro’s film has so that alone hurts The Shape Water’s chances.

Most Likely to Upset: The Shape of Water

Best Director:
This should go to Guillermo Del Toro. He may not win Best Picture but The Shape of Water is arguably his best work to date and it would be an injustice not to give him this nod.

Most Likely to Upset: I want to say that this is already locked for him, but for shock value I’m going to say Greta Gerwig for her directorial debut in Lady Bird. This scenario is highly unlikely but I won’t be that mad if she’d steal this one from Del Toro.

Best Actress: (Locked)
I’ve seen all of the films of the actresses nominated in this category so it’s kind of difficult for me to regard anyone as THE BEST. With that being said, I feel like Frances McDormand is already locked to win this. Sally Hawkins is a good second choice but McDormand just happened to sweep all of the precursor awards so there’s that.

Best Actor:
I’d be in the minority right here predicting an upset by Timothee Chalamet to the season’s frontrunner Gary Oldman. I initially pegged Oldman locked to win this but I’ve this nagging feeling that this would be the biggest upset of the night. Chalamet’s performance in Call Me By Your Name does seem like a once in a blue moon performance from such a very young and promising actor. In comparison to Oldaman’s stunning portrayal of Winston Churchill in the Darkest Hour, Chalamet didn’t need the help of prosthetics to actually translate something extraordinary into the screen.

Most Likely to Upset: Timothee Chalamet to Gary Oldman’s frontrunner position.

Best Supporting Actress: (Locked)
I don’t even know what to say about Allison Janney. She’s just simply sublime in I, Tonya.

Best Supporting Actor: (Locked)
Sam Rockwell’s character as a racist police officer is entirely believable that it is so easy to get angry at both the actor and the character he’s playing. That is how effective he was. This is a solid performance and no one even comes close.

Best Original Screenplay:
The Shape of Water – Guillermo Del Toro & Vanessa Taylor

Best Adapted Screenplay:
Call Me By Your Name – James Ivory

Best Animated Feature Film:
Coco – Lee Unkrich & Darla K. Anderson

Best Original Score:
Star Wars: The Last Jedi – John Williams

Best Original Song:
Remember Me from Coco by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez

Best Cinematography:
Blade Runner 2049 – Roger Deakins

Best Makeup and Hairstyling:
Victoria & Abdul – Lou Sheppard

Best Production Design:
Blade Runner 2049 – Dennis Gassner, Alessandra Querzola

Most Likely to Upset: Victoria & Abdul

Best Costume Design:
For something about Costume, this should be locked for Phantom Thread.

Most Likely to Upset: Victoria & Abdul

Best Film Editing:
Dunkirk – Lee Smith (Locked)

Best Sound Editing: (Locked)
Dunkirk

Best Sound Mixing: (Locked)
Dunkirk

Best Foreign Language Film:
Una Mujer Fantastic a (A Fantastic Woman) from Chile by Sebastian Lelio

Most Likely To Upset: Sweden’s The Square by Ruben Ostlund.

Beat Visual Effects:
Blade Runner 2049

I do not have any basis for the documentary features so I won’t make any predictions for said categories.

Will Catriona Gray’s Rogue Magazine Cover Ruin Her Binibining Pilipinas Dreams?

After Catriona Gray’s successful filing yesterday in the hopes of becoming a Binibining Pilipinas candidate, pageant fans and pundits are waiting in bated breath whether she’d actually make it as an official candidate or all of her preparations will be for naught.

You may recall that Miss World 2013 Megan Young was allegedly denied participation during the 2013 edition of the Binibining Pilipinas pageant due to her very daring editorial for Rogue Magazine in 2012.

Catriona was featured on the cover of Rogue Magazine during its January-February 2014 Music Issue wearing a backless Roland Mouret dress. I personally don’t see anything wrong with this and the editorial that goes along with it was too high-fashion to even be considered racy. At all.

Just  let me post what Rogue Magazine exactly is based on their website. I personally don’t read the magazine so forgive me.

Rogue is an award-winning magazine that covers entertainment, culture, and current affairs for an affluent and important audience in the Philippines. Rogue is synonymous with beautiful women, powerful photography, and intelligent storytelling. Thought-provoking, relevant, and glamorous, Rogue has become a lifestyle filter whose pages reflect the unique pulse of Filipinos, in the Philippines and abroad. Combining cutting-edge style with profiles on the country’s influencers — from art and design to business and politics — Rogue is a purveyor of impeccable taste, elegant covers, and world-class journalism.  – Rogue.ph

The crux of the matter is, detractors of Ms. Gray are already clamoring for her disqualification which I thought was really mean-spirited and very unsportmanlike stating it clearly violates the Binibining Pilipinas rules of posing for men’s magazine. SERIOUSLY GUYS, GET A GRIP. Let the girl chase her dreams!

And to Catriona, Ganbatte! ^_^
