Best, worst and most: 2006 in review

CELEBRITIES AND TRENDS...

Best dressed celebrity: Kate Moss
Most gorgeous dress on an ugly celebrity: Versace gown on Jessica Alba at the Oscars
Best public melt down: Britney Spears, from her “trailer park” look, down to her showing the world where her kids hula-jooped their way out and her c-section scar so lumpy it seems as if the doctor left a brail warning detailing every infection she’s ever had *shudder*
Best kept secret: Suri Cruise
Worst kept secret: Nicole Richie’s weight loss
Worst asshole stunt: Michael Richards’ racist outburst
Most pitiful skank stunt: Kevin Federline saying Brit is a bad momma trying to get more moola
Most disgusting fairy tale: TomKat’s
Most sinful couple you can’t get enough of: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Worst trend: overly oversized sunglasses
Most horrifying accessory: Axl-Rose-style headbands
Best accessory: rolled shorts
Best comeback: leggings
Most gorgeous, purty purty trend: polka dots
Best quotes: Paris Hilton saying, “Sex is sacred. People shouldn’t have sex unless they’re in an exclusive relationship anyway. I’d rather not do anything.” And another one, “It’s been my dream to have four babies by 30. I look after animals, so I’d have a lot to give my kids.”

MOVIES...

Best animated flick: Happy Feet
Best chick flick: The Devil Wears Prada
Best suspense-triller: The Departed
Most beautiful wardrobe I’d kill for: Anne Hathaway’s in TDWP
Most disappointing: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Most surprisingly awesome: Superman Returns (I don’t see what the fuck “true fans” are complaining about. Even with Kate Bosworth, hands-down, it’s my favorite movie of 2006.)
Most astoundingly fantabulous: Casino Royale
Most fuck-worthy of them all: Daniel Craig as James Bond *le sigh*
Most self-important blowhard: Lady in the Water
Most underrated: United 93
Most overrated piece of crap: X-Men 3: The Last Stand
Worst chosen actor to play a character: Tom Hanks as Dr. Robert Langdon in The Da Vinci Code
Most deserving of shiny tiara: Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls
Best chase scene: Casino Royale, 007 chasing a Jackie Chan wannabe on a construction site (I thought it’s just a fancy scene, but according to Wikipedia it’s called parkour, to “pass obstacles in the fastest and most direct manner possible.”)
Most embarrassing that I’ve actually seen it: Little Man *gag* (I burned my eyes as if someone threw acid into my face!)

TELEVISION...

Best comedy: My Name is Earl
Best performance of euthanasia: NBC axing Joey
Worst bitchy stunt: Star Jones’s quiting The View
Most anticipated: Grey’s Anatomy’s third season
Best moment: CSI, on the last minute of last season’s last episode when Grissom (William Petersen) looked up from his bed at Sara (Jorja Fox) in the bathroom door, fresh from a bath
Most intense: Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Burke’s (Isaiah Washington) fight on Grey’s Anatomy in “From a Whisper to a Scream”
Most unexpected megahit: Dancing with the Stars
Most promising but not quite there yet: Supernatural
Most improved season: The Office
Best show I want to love but hate to love: Prison Break
Worst letdown of the year: Arrested Development saying goodbye (I will miss it terribly. *sniff*)
Most missed shows: Friends, Sex and the City
Mostly going downhill to die a horrible death: Lost

BOOKS...

Best historical fiction: Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky
Best chic lit: Anybody Out There? by Marian Keyes
Best young adult: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Most disappointing: Don’t Look Down by Jennifer Cruise and Bob Mayer (I absolutely, utterly adore Jenny. However, I expected wonderful things from DLD, especially after Bob and Jenny’s public foreplay, that I felt robbed it’s such a meh I can’t even remember parts of it. *sniff*)
Most bullshit bestseller: Godless: The Church of Liberalism by Ann Coulter
Most unforgettable moment: meeting David Sedaris *sigh*
Most appalling trainwreck: James Frey busted for fucking lying and then his oh-so-stupid but totally engrossing appearance on Oprah
Most disgraceful but oh-so-fun to behold: bitchfest on Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake novels
Most beautifully delivered bitch slap: Jenny Crusie’s on a snarky editor *muy magnifico!*

I think the LKH bitchfest was actually quite fun. I mean, I rarely care for "celebrities" but the woman is completely deranged. But, I still don't understand what people see in her books. LOL.

LMAO about Britney! I've seen her going commando pics, OMG, yukkk!

Paris Hilton is just a skank. I don't know why she's so popular.

I like Pirates 2. Well it's not as good as the first movie but I laughed out loud watching it. Plus Johnny Depp! Come on, it's not that bad.

Casino Royale is so good it's definitely one of my favorite movies of 2006. I've yet to see Dreamgirls but heard a lot of good thing about it.

I think MK's Rachel's Holiday is better but that doesn't mean I didn't like Anybody Out There. LKH is just out of control. It's funny though. LOL!

BBs, fantastic synopsis of 2006. I think Jennifer Crusie is awesome especially with the way she wrote that piece as if saying "fuck off" but in a very sassy witty way. LOL! Brava!

The Da Vinci Code is the worst movie of 2006!!!

Blogger Danielle De Barbarac said...

LOL! Such funny categories. :P

I don't know if I should laugh or be scared about Paris' announcements. Who would have guessed she has maternal instincts?

Love Happy Feet! And Casino Royale. Daniel Craig... sigh. I can't wait for the next Bond movie. I hope on that one he'd have more nude scenes. LOL!

I so agree about that episode of GA! That was so intense it almost felt like you couldn't watch Christina and Burke.

LKH is overrated. And Anita Blake is a slut. Great post BBs!

I forgot about that James Frey incident! I saw him on Oprah and even though I know she will never stoop so low, I wanted her to attack James Frey! LOL. Oprah was sooooo mad at that time I would have died if I were JF.

Blogger Shoshana said...

Oh, I like this list, and even agreed on most of it.

Tom Hanks did great on TVC. Whom would you replace him?

I love Anybody Out there!

I can't say I like polka dots. They make a body look squarish. Really. It's all those circles!

1/02/2007 04:22:00 PM  

Blogger Polly King said...

Love this list. Britney, what a waste. And to think I used to envy her body.

How come you gals don't like Prison Break? Wentworth Miller?? Hello, what's not to love??!

James Frey is a slimeball, but if no one found out about his so called lies, his book would have been one of 2006's best.

Ann Coulter is a skinny foul bitch. No one should buy her books IMO.

Great list! I agree on most of it especially about Irene Nemirovsky's Suite Francaise. Quite outstanding for an unfinished novel.

1/02/2007 04:59:00 PM

Daniel Craig- definitely very fuckable. Just give me the chance!!
Totally agreed on the movies list- POCDMC- good, but disappointing. DaVinci Code- SUCKED. Hard.

To a better year in 2007!

1/02/2007 05:56:00 PM  

Blogger Vanessa said...

Most gorgeous dress on an ugly celeb? lol! Totally agree on almost everything.

I don't know what's happening with Britney but she's going downhill, and she's been hanging out with Paris Hilton. What a pair, lol. At least she finally kicked K-Fed's ass out of her house.

I was so surprised when I saw Sara standing on Grissom's bathroom door. They barely smile to each other but there's always been this sizzle between them.

Prison Break is great! And Wentworth is hot. Lost, I gave up watching it after the mid-part of season two.

Daniel Craig, definitely the most fuckable. Jennifer Crusie rocks!!!

1/02/2007 06:07:00 PM  

Blogger Ladybug said...

I think Daniel Craig is the sexiest man alive right now. Sigh.

1/02/2007 06:15:00 PM  

Blogger Vanessa said...

Oh yeah most definitely. Just his accent... *sww-oon* I can't wait for Casino Royale's release on DVD. I'm actually hoping there's an added scene of that beach scene where he walks out of the water! Oh my!!

Noooooooo! Anything but leggings!!!!! My chubby thighs can't handle them.

Blogger Ladybug said...

Oh yeah! The DVD! When is it going to be released? I looked it up on Amazon but it's not listed yet. God, Daniel Craig makes me drool. I should be ashamed... Well I am a red hot blooded woman. LOL.

1/02/2007 06:34:00 PM  

Blogger Ladybug said...

2nd Amdt, I don't like leggings too! I have chubby thighs ugh!!! If I don't lurv them I say these thin-thighed book bitches should be hated. Harlot and Trollop, leggings should be outlawed!
;P
(Is it obvious I have too much time on my hands right now?)

I don't know about leggings and rolled shorts (I think these are only flattering on thin women) but I agree about the polka dots trend.

Paris Hilton is getting delusional by the minute, taking Britney Spears with her. I love Tom Hanks but The Da Vince Code is one of last year's worst movies.

I am a big GA fan and that episode you mentioned is one of my favorites! I'm so glad new episodes will be showed soon.

Under the Book category, I only know of two people there: David Sedaris who is a genius, and Ann Coulter, who's very smart but I hate.
Great list! :)

Blogger Jordis said...

I love My Name is Earl! I'm glad Earl's ex wife (what's her name?) won best actress in a comedy series last Emmys. Or was it the Golden Globes? Anyway, LOL, Supernatural is a good show. It reminds me of one of my favorite shows ever, Buffy, but scarier and less funny.

I didn't like Don't Look Down as well. James Frey, god, what a liar. I wonder where he is now... LKH's bitchfest is fun to watch! LOL!

1/02/2007 07:22:00 PM  

Blogger Petra said...

Casino Royale's DVD would be released on March. I'm getting a copy too. That way I can watch Daniel Craig playing Bond anytime I want and see him naked anytime I want. Heheh!

1/02/2007 07:28:00 PM  

Blogger Isabella said...

Yes, what is it with the leggings? I never liked it.

I was so surprised when I saw Kramer's outburst. That was way out of line, all I could do was gasp. It was ugly and if he thought he was being funny, he should have his head examined.

Wentworth Miller.. *sigh* Daniel Craig... OMG! *faint*

I miss Sex and the City too. The girls, the clothes, the shoes, Mr. Big...

LKH and the horror she has become... and I used to love Anita! Jennifer Crusie is a goddess. *bow down* LOL. Great list BBs!

Blogger Polly King said...

They said Desperate Housewives will replace SATC. Oh what fools they were. DS sucks by the way.

2nd Amdt, I agree Ann Coulter is a smart woman. But you have to agree she is despicable. LOL.

Blogger Lollie Rose said...

Axl Rose headbands? What is that? Paris Hilton is ridiculous and she's irritating. Daniel Craig, most fuckable indeed. I like Pirates 2 enough, it has its moments. Superman, I hope they make a sequel soon.

Fox has this annoying way of axing great shows before it matures. Waterfalls and Firefly were both excellent shows and they were gone after only one season. At least Arrested Development had what, 4 seasons?

Great list ladies!

Michael Richards' racist outbust - truly appalling. And to think I used to like him in Seinfeld.

Blogger ALE said...

Bitches, you always crack me up.

After seeing Casino Royale I can't get Daniel Craig out of my mind. He's is so freaking sexy. Who knew?

I agree with DLD by JC&BM being a total let down. I even went to their book signing (before I read it) and while reading it I kept thinking "where's the chemistry I saw at the book signing?" Perhaps they just need a little more time to work together.
Or is collaborating in a book like working on tv/movies. You know how it is said if an actor and actress have chemistry on screen it means there's nothing between them off screen. If they're a dud on screen together then their sleeping together off screen. On this theory it means JC & BM or duds in writing together but hot in the sack.

Or maybe that is all shit because 1) I think I am actually quoting Joey Tribiani from Friends LMAO and 2) Brad and Angelina were hot on screen and aparently off screen too.

Sorry, ramblings.

Anway, great post!

Blogger are you asking me to dance? said...

I take it you read Twilight? :-)

I also agree with you on Superman Returns (poor Cyclops never gets the girl), X-3 and PoTC II (if only Serenity could have had half their numbers)... but aside from those I haven't really seen anything else, including most of the celeb stuff (I live under a rock).

Happy belated New Year!

I don't follow the celebrity thing at all, so all over my head. I haven't seen Casino Royale yet, but going to go soon as after all the swooning re Daniel on this blog ... have to check it out. Especially if theres naked!!!
Ever the eye candy addict.
Agree with all the rest ... good post.

Blogger Jolie said...

Why of course I'm... what is it? Sinfully hot. LOL ;P I wonder if the rumors are true that Angelina and Brad will get married. I doubt it'll be held in a castle though...

I agree with you on Superman and how I wish they're making the second movie already. But it didn't make quite well on the box office which is a shame when you think how good the movie is.

Good post!

Hey Betsy, welcome! Glad you ladies like the list. :)


Aggie,
CASINO ROYALE: OMG, hot hot hot hot hot HOT!!! There's this scene of Daniel Craig walking out of the water and oh lordy... the only thing missing is a semi hard on. :P


Mailyn,
I usually miss all the "trainwrecks", i don't give a flying fuck LOL. But there are those that are too absurd or too stupid, even i hear of it and it's just too good not to make fun. :P


Ale,
(You know "ale" in Tagalog literally means "woman". ;))
LOL. I don't agree with that theory but i'm with you on hoping that Jenny and Bob are hot together in the sack. I soooo want them to be together--they're so cute! And i think Brad and Angelina are both hot no matter what. Saw a pic of AJ in a dilapidated shack, just wearing a white t-shirt and jeans and she still looks like a Pantene commercial. Now she's a goddess.


Dance,
Yep, read TWILIGHT and LOVED it! Thanks again for the rec. :D

Love SUPERMAN RETURNS and i hope they'll make a sequel soon. Like Jolie said, too bad it did poorly on the box office. :/ Dunno how that happened really as it's an excellent movie plus the fact that who doesn't like the flying big guy? And Brandon Routh was perfect (not to mention uber yummy LOL), Mr. Reeve would be proud i reckon.

2nd Amdt, Ladybug, Izzie,
I love leggings! They're so comfy and cute! And easy to remove when they're... er, in need of fast removing. :P They're tricky though since it definitely draws attention to your ankles, calves and thighs.

Once i wore this verra cute long top that can be worn alone but i'll look like i'm wearing a very short skirt. S said, "Why are you wearing leggings under your skirt? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the skirt?" Hmmm. Well, what does he knows--i look cute anyway!


Shosh,
I like Tom Hanks really, but dunno, he's not Langdon. And that mullet! Good god..

You know i wore a purple polka dots dress on NEw Years and it's soooo cute i look and feels so purrty if i may say so myself. :P

I love this post. I agree with everything on the Movie list and LMAO on the Celebs.

If I have to add one category, it would be Best New Show: How I Met Your Mother. I think it's hilarious with the main character pondering about his love life. LOL. Good job bitches.

1/03/2007 09:19:00 AM  

Blogger Danielle De Barbarac said...

Polly, I agree. Desperate Housewives is getting ridiculous. I'm getting tired of watching it and it had such a wonderful season 1. It will never win against Grey's.

Harlot, LOL, leggings don't agree with me too. May I ask who S is? :) Come on you can share with us. He has a point. ;P

It's embarrassing how these celebrities carry on with their lives.

Agree with Superman, Brandon is hot lol, and Pirates, it's good but disappointing. I think it's the fact that there's no beginning and no end. Although it worked perfectly with The Two Towers...

Good post ladies.

Good list. I'm in love with Daniel Craig, he is so sexy.

Da Vinci Code, skip it. Pirates 2, didn't work, but I am waiting for the 3rd movie.

This list cracks me up. I am so glad that Jennifer Hudson is finally getting the fame she deserves. Speaking of American Idol, next season will be starting soon. Yay!

I agree with you on Don't Look Down. It was disppointing. I hope the next book Jen and Bob write would be tons better.

I like Ann Coulter but she is out of line sometimes and can be very annoying. I don't know why LKH is still so popular when her books suck!

Good post bitches. I liked Pirates Dead Man's Chest. It's not as good as Curse of the Black Pearl but Johnny Depp was so funny. I did not like Lady in the Water too. X-Men, besides Wolverine, was so meh I didn't even care that they many of them died. I'm with you on Superman Returns, excellent film and great cast, but I would have preferred a different Lois Lane. Cyclops, poor guy, never gets the girl.

I can't wait for Grey's Anatomy next week. Finally a new episode each week. Woohoo! Did you notice that almost kissing scene between Addison and Alex? Oh no... not them. I want Alex and Izzie to get back together!

1/03/2007 04:53:00 PM  

Blogger Polly King said...

I'm also looking forward to Aidol's new season. And of course Grey's new episodes.

Lily, I'd like Alex and Izzie to get back together as well. I still prefer Denny but yeah, he's dead. Actually I think it's too early for Izzie to be in any relationship at the moment.

As far as celeb trends… the whole 80's skinny leg jeans and leggings under skirts, EFF THAT! I did the 80's once and I am not going back! YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE 80'S HAHAHAHA! The 80's, as far as I'm concerned was the worst decade for fashion and they should let it die. At least other decades had some redeemable things.

Movies... POTC 2:DMC was a MAJOR let down for me. I know it was a filler movie to build up 3 but come on! The costumes were much better this time but the plot stunk. Speaking of sequels, Clerks II ROCKED MY WORLD! Kevin Smith never lets me down. He is great! I liked Da Vinci Code, I won't lie. Why are people hating on Tom Hanks. I love TH. His hair in this movie sucked.

Television - I only watch 2 things on TV and that is Gilmore Girls, which I think is a little disappointing this season, so far. If you don't have time for Lane's story line, leave her out! Quit taking time away from story lines that have meat. Luke's story line is sucking right now too. I love Grey's it never disappoints either... except I expected a big episode for Thanksgiving and Christmas and we got screwed with reruns, and last year they ROCKED because they we special episodes for the holiday. You can't spoil us one year and screw us the next! And 5 reruns in a row is too much! 3 then a new episode, so knock it off!

Books - Don't Look Down...Don't Bother Reading. LAME!

James Frey got roasted WAY TOO HARD. Ok, he made it seem like it was more fact than fiction, a memoir rather than based on a true story, BUT was it entertaining? Did you enjoy the story because it was a good story or because it actually happened to someone? Most people were entertained by it so fuck off with your refunds already. BFD! I hate complaing soccer mom’s who have nothing better to bitch about because their life consists of laundry and Oprah. Get a fucking life and worry about more important things.


These are my opinions, not yours, so don't freak on me. I'm in a pissy mood too...LOL, can you tell?

Much love,
GWB
