Geniusbeauty.com continues a series of articles about the results of the year 2011. This time we would like to share with you the movies and the actors, who have been memorable in 2011.
Movies of the Year 2011
Mentioning the motion picture “Black Swan” directed by Darren Aronofski wherever possible has become a real trend. You cannot go past the main competitor of the “Black Swan”, Tom Hooper’s movie “The King’s Speech“. The biopic, dedicated to the relations of King George VI and his wife, a speech therapist and the British nation took all the possible prizes and awards, unlike “Swan”.
Among the winners of this year is, no doubt, Lars von Trier with his “Melancholia”. Despite (or, perhaps, due to) the scandal around the incautious statements of the director, the picture with Kirsten Dunst received a high critical acclaim and a wide response of the audience.
Actors of the Year 2011
The general public, the U.S. cinema experts and the world of fashion were unanimous in giving the victory in the “Best Actress” nomination to Natalie Portman. She began to appear everywhere – from advertising Dior perfumes to the roles in second-rate comedies. In addition to professional success this summer, the actress became a mother for the first time. The first-born baby of Natalie and her husband, the choreographer Benjamin Millepied, was given a traditional Jewish name Aleph.
Among the men, the first place went to the singer Justin Timberlake, who seems to have forgotten about his solo career and is completely involved in cinematography. The young man appeared in two of the hottest romantic comedies this season, in the film “Friends with Benefits” and “Bad Teacher”. Interestingly, the young man and his partner in the “Teacher”, Cameron Diaz, had had a long relationship, and his colleague in “Friends with Benefits”, Mila Kunis, is widely spoken about by the public and journalists as his possible girl-friend.
Entertainer of the Year 2011
It seems that this year Lady Gaga has been engaged exclusively in shocking the public. Only this can explain the fact that her name did not appear in the lists of the leaders of music awards. Of course, the trend of “Lady Gaga” is still influential, but it gradually moves into the background. Who has pushed the eccentric singer aside?
This was successfully accomplished by the 23-year-old Briton Adele. The girl has been insistently called “the second Amy Winehouse”, but the closer she moves to the current huge success, the clearer it becomes that Adele is a representative of the classic jazz and blues school. Today, her voice is considered the best modern tone, and each song of hers becomes a hit.
Rihanna was also demanded and popular in 2011. She was more likely to fall into the epicenter of scandals and was often associated with overly aggressive and straightforward clips.
Tracks of the Year 2011
2011 will be remembered by music lovers because of the music videos of Jennifer Lopez, who has returned after a short period of oblivion. The same is attributed to Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, Selena Gomez, and Adele. It is their tracks that have become frequent leaders of various charts and ratings and have been heard in clubs and on radio.
