Golden Globe Award
The Golden Globe Awards are accolades bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association beginning in January 1944, recognizing excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign. The annual ceremony at which the awards are presented is a major part of the film industry's awards season, which culminates each year in the Academy Awards; the eligibility period for the Golden Globes corresponds to the calendar year. The 76th Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best in film and television in 2018, were held on January 6, 2019; the 77th Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 5, 2020. In 1943, a group of writers banded together to form the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and, by creating a generously distributed award called the Golden Globe Award, they now play a significant role in film marketing; the 1st Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best achievements in 1943 filmmaking, were held in January 1944, at the 20th Century-Fox studios. Subsequent ceremonies were held at various venues throughout the next decade, including the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
In 1950, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association made the decision to establish a special honorary award to recognize outstanding contributions to the entertainment industry. Recognizing its subject as an international figure within the entertainment industry, the first award was presented to director and producer, Cecil B. DeMille; the official name of the award thus became the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Beginning in 1963, the trophies commenced to be handed out by one or more persons referred to as "Miss Golden Globe", a title renamed on January 5, 2018 to "Golden Globe Ambassador"; the holders of the position were, the daughters or sometimes the sons of a celebrity, as a point of pride, these continued to be contested among celebrity parents. In 2009, the Golden Globe statuette was redesigned; the New York firm Society Awards collaborated for a year with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to produce a statuette that included a unique marble and enhanced the statuette's quality and gold content.
It was unveiled at a press conference at the Beverly Hilton prior to the show. Revenues generated from the annual ceremony have enabled the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to donate millions of dollars to entertainment-related charities, as well as funding scholarships and other programs for future film and television professionals; the most prominent beneficiary is the Young Artist Awards, presented annually by the Young Artist Foundation, established in 1978 by Hollywood Foreign Press member Maureen Dragone, to recognize and award excellence of young Hollywood performers under the age of 21 and to provide scholarships for young artists who may be physically or financially challenged.

A. L. O. Titanium rings stolen from the United States Department of Justice which can display the people listed in the witness protection program. DOJ official William Rose Bailey and a protected witness, Alan Caulfield are among those killed. At Caulfield's house in San Bernardino, the Angels track his assassin Randy Emmers to a beach where they meet with former Angel Madison Lee. During the Coal Bowl motorcycle race, Emmers targets another witness named Max Petroni, but is killed by the Thin Man. Inside Emmers' pocket, the Angels discover the photos of Caulfield and Dylan, under her birth name, Helen Zaas. Dylan reveals that she is a protected witness after sending her former boyfriend, Irish mob leader Seamus O'Grady to prison. O'Grady has since targeted those who wronged him, including Dylan and Max, whose parents O'Grady killed. Max is sent to the home of Bosley's mother for his protection. At a monastery, the Angels learn about the Thin Man's past from the Mother Superior, who reveals his name, Anthony.
Afterward, the Angels track O'Grady's mob at San Pedro and manage to get the rings, but O'Grady threatens Dylan with the murder of everyone she loves. While Natalie attends her boyfriend, Peter Kominsky's high school reunion at Hermosa Beach and Alex returns home to find her action star boyfriend-under-timeout, Jason Gibbons telling her awestruck father about her exploits, Dylan leaves the Angels and heads to Mexico; when Natalie and Alex notice her letter, they read her reasons for leaving them.

While in Mexico keeping a low profile, Dylan is convinced to return after seeing an apparition of former Angel Kelly Garrett. Natalie and Alex deduce that Carter is a part of O'Grady's scheme after seeing him return Bosley's keys without any pain, since he had earlier claimed to have broken his ribs, now proved to have been a lie. Following him, the two witness him being shot to death by Madison, the true mastermind behind all of this.
Though Dylan arrives to back the group, the Angels are shot by Madison, who takes the rings, though they survive by having worn Kevlar vests beforehand. At the base, Charlie through the speakers reprimands Madison for, he confronts her for endangering the lives of her former teammates. By the time that he had rescued them, the girls were in critical condition and Madison was kicked out of the Angels for it. Madison responds by shooting the speaker; the Angels realize that Madison, with the protection of O'Grady, is going to sell the rings to the Antonioni Crime Family, the Tanaka Yakuza, the Diablo Cartel at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where Jason's film's premiere is about to commence. The Angels set the three groups up to be arrested by the FBI instead, while they confront Madison and O'Grady. Anthony comes to the Angels' aid, where it's revealed he's in love with Dylan and is doing his part to protect her. O'Grady kills Anthony, he continues to fight Dylan, succeeds in killing her, but she manages to blind him, which causes him to lose his footing and fall to his death.
The Angels proceed to fight Madison all the way to an abandoned theater, where they kick her into a chamber filled with gas, where Madison inadvertently triggers an explosion upon firing her guns at them, killing her. The Angels attend the premiere.

MTV Movie & TV Awards
The MTV Movie & TV Awards is a film and television awards show presented annually on MTV. The nominees are decided by producers and executives at MTV. Winners are decided online by the general public. Presently voting is done through MTV's official website through a TV Awards voting website; the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards took place on May 7, 2017 and featured the first time men and women competing jointly in the acting categories. Winners are presented with the "golden popcorn" statue, made by Society Awards. Unlike its sister event MTV Video Music Awards, the MTV Movie Awards were taped and broadcast a few days later; the entire production was taped in a different order than what the MTV viewing audience saw. For example, the show's host would tape all his/her monologues and introductions at one time, all the musical acts would perform one after the other. Celebrities would only appear at the live taping for the announcement of their award category, members of the general audience fill-in their vacant seats during the other times.
Through editing, MTV was able to present to its viewing audience an awards show which appears to be taped in live sequence, with celebrities remaining for the entire show. This method of production allowed profanity to be edited from the show and is more convenient for the celebrities; the actual live taping aired same-day on pay-per-view channels in most metropolitan cities around the world. Some awards telecasts had been shown in television syndication. However, in 2007, this changed, as MTV and Survivor producer Mark Burnett announced that the 2007 edition would be broadcast live on MTV for the first time on June 3, 2007 in Los Angeles; the 2016 broadcast was the first show since 2006 not to air live as the event was taped on April 9, 2016 before airing on Viacom's MTV networks the following day on April 10. Since 2007, polls for several awards were voted by online users on MTV's official website. Best Movie Best Show Best Performance in a Movie Best Performance in a Show Best Comedic Performance Best Scared-As-Shit Performance Best Villain Best Hero Best Kiss Best Fight Best On-Screen Team Best Reality Series Best Music Documentary Best Scene Stealer The Lifetime Achievement Award was given to movie personalities, including fictional characters, who made an impact on popular culture.
Prior to announcing the winner MTV would air testimonials from major Hollywood celebrities praising the winners greatness while only offering a slight tease as to who the winner was. Following Clint Howard's win and emotional reception speech, the award was discontinued. 1992: Jason Voorhees 1993: The Three Stooges 1994: John Shaft 1995: Jackie Chan 1996: Godzilla 1997: Chewbacca 1998: Clint Howard The Silver Bucket of Excellence is an award, given to a film that has made lasting impact on moviegoers and the MTV audience. It was further defined in 2006 as honoring a "film of the past that resonates with more meaning today." 2005: The Breakfast Club – awarded to Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy 2006: Do the Right Thing – awarded to Spike Lee The MTV Generation Award is the successor to the MTV Lifetime Achievement Award, though it is more serious than its predecessor. The recipient of the award is celebrated for great achievement in movies; the distinction "is given to an artist who has shown us a variety of impressive roles, a personal and professional flair and of course, an awesome level of talent."
The MTV Trailblazer Award recipient spearheads the way for others. The award is given to an actor of young age that managed to inspire others with a diverse portfolio of work and a transcendent reputation in the public eye. 2013: Will Ferrell 2015: Kevin Hart 2016: Melissa McCarthy Since 1993, scenes are spoofed from that year's most popular films, although television shows and older movies have been chosen. This may include sound and video montages, replacing some of the original cast with other actors mocking the scenes of that film; the diversity of the spoofs can vary from one dialogue to several long scenes, including fighting and action sequences.

G. I. Jane is a 1997 American action film directed by Ridley Scott, produced by Largo Entertainment, Scott Free Productions and Caravan Pictures, distributed by Hollywood Pictures and starring Demi Moore, Viggo Mortensen and Anne Bancroft; the film tells the fictional story of the first woman to undergo training in U. S. Navy Special Warfare Group, it opened to mixed reviews with Moore's performance receiving criticism and winning her the Razzie Award for Worst Actress. Although it made moderate profits earning $97.1 million against its $50 million budget, it was considered a box office disappointment. Following the debacle of Striptease the year the failure of G. I. Jane marked the end of Moore's career as a leading actress in Hollywood. A Senate Armed Services Committee interviews a candidate for the position of Secretary of the Navy. Senator Lillian DeHaven from Texas criticizes the Navy for not being gender-neutral. Behind the curtains, a deal is struck: If women compare favorably with men in a series of test cases, the military will integrate women into all occupations of the Navy.
The first test is the training course of the U. S. Navy Combined Reconnaissance Team. Senator DeHaven hand-picks topographical analyst Lieutenant Jordan O'Neil, because she is physically more feminine than the other candidates. To make the grade, O'Neil must survive a grueling selection program in which 60 percent of all candidates wash out, most before the fourth week, with the third week being intensive; the enigmatic Command Master Chief John James Urgayle runs the brutal training program that involves 20-hour days of tasks designed to wear down recruits' physical and mental strength, including pushing giant ship fenders up beach dunes, working through obstacle courses, hauling landing rafts. Given a 30-second time allowance in an obstacle course, O'Neil demands to be held to the same standards as the male trainees; the master chief observes O'Neil helping the other candidates by allowing them to climb on her back to make it over the wall obstacle course. Eight weeks into the program, during SERE training, the Master Chief ties her to a chair with her hands behind her back, grabs hold of her and slams her through the door picking her up off the floor he dunks her head in ice cold water in front of the other crew members.
O'Neil fights back, is successful in causing him some injury despite her immobilized arms. In so doing, she acquires respect from him, as well as from the other trainees. Navy leaders, confident that a woman would drop out, become concerned. Civilian media learn of O'Neil's involvement, she becomes a sensation known as "G. I. Jane." Soon she must contend with trumped up charges that she is a lesbian, is fraternizing with women. O'Neil is told that she will be given a desk job during the investigation and, if cleared, will need to repeat her training, she decides to "ring out" rather than accept a desk job. It is revealed that the photo evidence of O'Neil's alleged fraternization came from Senator DeHaven's office. DeHaven never intended for O'Neil to succeed. O'Neil threatens to expose DeHaven, who has the charges voided and O'Neil restored to the program; the final phase of training, an operational readiness exercise, is interrupted by an emergency that requires the CRT trainees' support. The situation involves a reconnaissance satellite powered by weapons-grade plutonium that fell into the Libyan desert.
A team of U. S. Army Rangers is dispatched to retrieve the plutonium, but their evacuation plan fails, the trainees are sent to assist the Rangers; the Master Chief's shooting of a Libyan soldier to protect O'Neil leads to a confrontation with a Libyan patrol. During the mission, O'Neil, using her experience as a topographical analyst, realizes when she sees the team's map that the Master Chief is not going to use the route the others believe he will in regrouping with the others, she displays a definitive ability in leadership and strategy while rescuing the injured Master Chief, whom she and McCool pull out of an explosives-laden "kill zone." With helicopter gunships delivering the final assault to the defenders, the rescue mission on the Libyan coast is a success. Upon their return, all those who participated in the mission are accepted to the CRT. Urgayle gives O'Neil his Navy Cross and a book of poetry containing a short poem, "Self-pity", by D. H. Lawrence, as acknowledgment of her accomplishment and in gratitude for rescuing him.
G. I. Jane received mixed reviews from critics, it holds a 53% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 32 reviews, with an average rating of 5.8/10. Demi Moore won the Razzie Award for Worst Actress for her performance in the film; the film was considered a box office disappointment. G. I. Jane opened at # 1 grossing $11,094,241 its opening weekend. In its second weekend the film stayed at # 1, playing in 1,973 theaters. In the end the film played in a widest release of 2,043 theaters and grossed $48,169,156 domestically, falling short of its $50,000,000 budget; the film made a total of $97,169,156 worldwide. G. I. Jane was released on DVD on April 22, 1998; the only extra feature was a theatrical trailer. It was released on Blu-ray on April 3, 2007 with no extra features aside from trailers for other movies; the film was released on LaserDisc. The film grossed $22,122,300 in rentals.

Ghost (1990 film)
Ghost is a 1990 American romantic fantasy thriller film directed by Jerry Zucker, written by Bruce Joel Rubin, starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Tony Goldwyn, Rick Aviles. The plot centers on a young woman in jeopardy, the ghost of her murdered lover, a reluctant psychic who assists him in saving her. Ghost was theatrically released on July 1990 by Paramount Pictures, it received positive reviews and was a massive box office success, grossing over $505.7 million on a budget of $22 million, becoming the highest-grossing film of 1990. Adjusted for inflation, as of 2015 Ghost was the 93rd-highest-grossing film of all time domestically; the film received five nominations at the 63rd Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Original Score and Best Film Editing, winning Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay. Sam Wheat, a banker, his girlfriend Molly Jensen, a potter and move into an apartment in Manhattan with the help of Sam's friend and co-worker Carl Bruner. One afternoon, Sam confides in Carl his discovery of unusually high balances in obscure bank accounts.
He decides declining Carl's offer of assistance. That night and Molly are attacked by a mugger who shoots and kills Sam in a scuffle before stealing his wallet. Sam sees Molly crying over his body and discovers he is now a ghost and unable to interact with the mortal world. Molly remains distraught in the days after Sam's death. Carl comes over and suggests Molly take a walk with him and Sam cannot bring himself to follow. Moments the mugger enters the apartment in search of something; when Molly returns, Sam scares their cat into attacking the thug. Sam follows the mugger to his Brooklyn apartment and learns that the man, Willie Lopez, was sent by an unknown party. After leaving Willie's residence, Sam happens upon the parlor of psychic Oda Mae Brown, a charlatan pretending to commune with spirits of the dead, shocked to discover her true psychic gift when she can hear Sam speaking. Sam persuades her to warn Molly. To allay Molly's skepticism, Oda Mae relays information. Molly gives Willie's address to Carl.
Meanwhile, Sam follows Carl and is devastated to learn he and Willie are working together. Carl is laundering money for drug dealers and he had Willie rob Sam to get his apartment key, which Carl uses to obtain Sam's book of passwords and transfer the money into a single account under the fictitious "Rita Miller". Sam learns from a violent poltergeist haunting the subway system how to manipulate objects with his mind. Sam persuades Oda Mae to help him thwart Carl. Before Carl can transfer the money for his clients, Oda Mae impersonates Rita Miller, closes the account, reluctantly gives the $4 million cashier's check to charity; as Carl searches for the money, Sam reveals his presence by typing his name on the computer keyboard. Carl goes to Molly. Carl and Willie go to Oda Mae's place but Sam warns her and her sisters to take shelter; when Willie arrives, Sam tosses objects at him, who flees into the street in a fit of panic and is killed by an oncoming car. Shadowy creatures emerge from the darkness to drag Willie's ghost down to Hell.
Sam and Oda Mae return to the apartment where—by levitating a penny into Molly's hand—he convinces Molly that Oda Mae is telling the truth about him. Oda Mae allows Sam to possess her body. Carl breaks into the apartment but Sam is too exhausted from the possession to fight Carl; the women run onto the fire escape, to a loft under construction, but Carl catches Oda Mae and holds her at gunpoint, demanding the check. A recovered Sam pushes Carl off her. Sam attacks him again. Carl tries to escape through a window and tosses a suspended hook at Sam, but the hook swings back, shatters the window and it slides down, fatally impaling and killing Carl with a glass shard; the shadowy creatures return to claim Carl's ghost for Hell. Sam asks. Miraculously, Molly can now hear him. A heavenly light shines in the room. Realizing that it is time for him to go with his task now completed, he and Molly share a tearful goodbye and one final kiss. Sam thanks Oda Mae for her help and walks into the light and onward to Heaven.
Filming for Ghost began shooting in July 1989. Most of the interior scenes were shot at Paramount in Los Angeles while the exterior scenes were shot in New York City in Bedford–Stuyvesant and Wall Street, for about five weeks; the film features about 100 special effects shots. Demi Moore's famous'boy cut' in the movie was designed by Manhattan hair stylist John Sahag; the music for Ghost was written by veteran composer Maurice Jarre. The soundtrack featured the 1955 song "Unchained Melody", composed by Alex North with lyrics by Hy Zaret; that song appears in the 1965 recording by the Righteous Brothers. Jarre's score was nominated for the 1990 Academy Award for Best Original Score, though it lost to John Barry's work for Dances with Wolves; the soundtrack album was issued on Milan Records. The film became an unexpected huge box-office success, grossing $505,702,588 on a b
