It was a memorable year indeed! Join me as I recall some of 2013’s brightest moments in Celebrity, Film and Music with a Toronto twist! As a true Connoisseur of Pop Culture, I certainly was spoiled with several delights this year on all three fronts. Toronto witnessed what could well be the strongest years this City ever has seen in terms of Star Power. Also, as an experienced Digital Photographer of sorts, I am sharing some of my favourite Snaps taken around the City this year too. If you’re a #NOFILTER kinda Guy or Gal, I apologize! A few of them are Horse-related, spending many of my weekends at scenic Woodbine Racetrack, my fave Place since Childhood to escape and recharge from the City. Come Wongsters, let us walk down this luminous Memory Lane together!
TOP TEN SONGS OF 2013
2013 was solid for Pop Music and I was thrilled to hear a return to great, strong melodies. What a year it was for Miley Cyrus who not only wowed us with We Can’t Stop, but slayed us hard with Wrecking Ball! Coming in like a Wrecking Ball she managed to turn all eyes her way in a year which saw Albums released from some Marquee names like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and more. Lana Del Rey put us in a state of euphoria this Spring with her chilling Ballad for The Great Gatsby, Young & Beautiful. Flawless and timeless. Mariah Carey and Miguel provided much of the Soundtrack for my early Summer with their gorgeous Collabo #Beautiful, while Robin Thicke undisputedly had the Song of Summer 2013 with Blurred Lines. His Album of the same name easily is my favourite Disc of 2013.
1. Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball 2. Lana Del Rey – Young & Beautitul 3. Mariah Carey ft. Miguel – #Beautiful 4. Justin Timberlake – Mirrors 5. Miley Cyrus – We Can’t Stop 6. Robin Thicke ft. Pharrell & T.I. – Blurred Lines 7. Capital Cities – Safe and Sound 8. Katy Perry – Roar 9. Icona Pop – I Love It 10. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Same Love

TOP TEN FILMS OF 2013
I don’t recall a year in recent memory where the Films were quite as strong as this year. It is as if Filmmakers have studied critiques, knew precisely what to avoid and owned it. Time after time I’d make it out to the morning Media Screenings and just when I thought I’d seen my favourite Film of 2013, another would come along and usurp the throne. In all, AIDS Drama Dallas Buyers Club would leave the strongest imprint with Jared Leto touching the core of my soul with his phenomenal performance. 12 Years a Slave left me shaken and speechless and made it really tough to decide a Fave. Saving Mr. Banks truly affected and inspired me, moving me to tears and I could never forget Cate Blanchett‘s empathic portrayal of a Woman battling her own demons in Woody Allen‘s Blue Jasmine. And yes, I really loved Spring Breakers. James Franco is just on another level.
1. Dallas Buyers Club 2. 12 Years a Slave 3. American Hustle 4. Blue Jasmine 5. Saving Mr. Banks 6. Gravity 7. 42 8. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire 9. Enough Said 10. Spring Breakers

I truly am blessed and can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for us here in this sight-filled City of Tastemakers!
Timed together with the Premiere of its celebrated twelfth Season tonight, FOX‘s Family Guy came direct to Toronto today as part of the Just For Laughs Festival. Toronto Fans got not one, but full two servings of Peter, Lois, Chris and Meg Griffin as Stars Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Seth Green and Mila Kunis flew-in from Los Angeles for back-to-back Live Performances of their beloved Animated-Comedy Series. A 40-piece Orchestra accompanied the Cast even.
By surprise, Attendees witnessed seeing Kunis’ Partner Ashton Kutcher enjoying the Show together in the Audience with them. The Couple flew in this afternoon as Fans and Paparazzi stared in awe as they quietly exited the Terminal and right into their SUV. Repeated pleas of “Ashton, please can I get a Photo with you?” came and dissipated into thin air as the City received an encore serving of major Starpower. TIFF ’13-Goers will remember that Kunis was just here a couple weeks back for Paul Haggis’ Third Person.
Audiences were treated to two-plus hours of Entertainment from the Stars of Family Guy and even got a chance to interact with them afterwards, in a rapidfire Q&A at both Shows. Some Fans successfully were able to get MacFarlane to role down his Window upon exiting the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts as generously he signed Autographs from his Vehicle. Kunis and Kutcher however were quick to exit, opting for privacy. The Cast head over to Barberians Steakhouse for two hours of post-Show Celebrations.
I was one of the few who were lucky enough to get up-close and personal with MacFarlane and he was amazingly nice, stopping to take a Snap despite clearly having had a long day. “It’s only a couple of you. Why not?”, he said to me and another. I couldn’t resist bringing my own TED Doll (the famous foul-mouthed Teddy Bear whom he voiced/created in the 2012 Blockbuster) out and he was happy to pose with us! His Castmates Green and Borstein (a ’90s Icon in her own right as recurring Character Ms. Swan on FOX‘s In Living Colour) also were amazingly nice. “Oh, how nice! A real Camera instead of a Cell Phone for once!”, she said to me after our Snap.
Family Guy Season Twelve premieres on FOX at 9:00 PM EST tonight!
Hollywood didn’t sleep much last night as the 85th annual Academy Award Nominations were announced at 5:30 AM Pacific Time. This year, Emma Stone and Funnyman Seth McFarlane were called-upon for announcing duties and although there were a few surprise Omissions, few will dispute that this year’s Nominees are deserving. MacFarlane himself even received a Nomination for his Song, Everybody Needs a Friend from Ted.
This year’s Best Picture Nominees are: Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty and lastly, Lincoln which leads the way with twelve Nominations. Many are concerned that snubs in the Directing Category might be predictive of a voting result here.
Directing Nominees include: Michael Haneke (Amour), Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Ang Lee (Life of Pi), David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) and Steven Spielberg (Lincoln). Surprise Omissions are first-ever Female Winner in the Category, Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) and Ben Affleck who despite a v. heavy promotional Campaign, still got snubbed for Argo. Missing also is Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained.
Actor in a Leading Role is hotly-contended with Hugh Jackman (Les Misérables) up against current Favourite Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln), Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook), Joaquin Phoenix (The Master) and Denzel Washington (Flight). Many are surprised that John Hawkes was snubbed here while his The Sessions Co-Star Helen Hunt was recognized for her work.
Actress in a Leading Role boasts two records – youngest and oldest Actress ever to be nominated with Quvenzhané Wallis and Emmanuelle Riva holding those distinctions respectively. Otherwise, Naomi Watts (The Impossible) is up against Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) and Favourite, Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) – these three Actresses each receiving their second-ever Nominations.
Actor in a Supporting Role for the first-time ever includes all previous Academy Award Winners: Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), Robert DeNiro (Silver Linings Playbook), Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master), Tommy Lee-Jones (Lincoln) and Alan Arkin (Argo). Some are surprised that Leonardo Dicaprio got snubbed for his work in Django Unchained, in perhaps the most evenly-matched Category at this year’s Awards.
Actress in a Supporting Role recognizes some fine work this year, but through and through Anne Hathaway is likely to win it all for her bone-chilling work as Fantine in Les Misérables. Also nominated are Amy Adams (The Master), Helen Hunt (The Sessions), Sally Field (Lincoln) and Jackie Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook). Each of these Actresses have either been nominated for or have won at least one Academy Award prior.
As an added surprise, perhaps we can expect to see Adele performing Original Song Nominee Skyfall?
Surprise! The Host of the 84th Annual Academy Awards has been announced and could they have made a better choice? Brilliant Funnyman and voice of TED himself Seth MacFarlane, has just been confirmed for Cinema’s most prestigious Event on February 24, 2013.
ABC will be televising the Oscars live from the Hollywood and Highland Center, known formerly as Kodak Theatre.
