HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – The movers and skakers of the American television industry have just had it with indecent exposure on live TV and on the red carpet at awards shows.
In a rare move by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the National Cable Television Association (NCTA) with the full support of all major U.S. television networks, a memorandum of agreement has been signed that will ban all indecent exposure by actors, singers and entertainers on live TV and at all red carpet ceremonies in awards shows.
The move came soon after pop singer Miley Cyrus appeared on the red carpet at last night’s MTV Video Musis Awards, wearing a top that barely covers her upper torso.
“It is time that we take back the decency and family-oriented nature of television and ban entertainers from exposing themselves before viewers, among them children and teens,” the agreement stated. “We will also blacklist any entertainer who claims ‘wardrobe malfunction’ during live performances.
The initial list of those banned from future live TV appearances included Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Janet Jackson.
MPAA is an American trade association that represents the six major Hollywood studios.
NCTA is the major trade organization for the American cable television industry.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Yesterday, we announced our choice for the best and worst-dressed at the State of the Nation Address (SONA) red carpet ceremonies held last Monday . We named Senator Nancy Binay the best-dressed and Senator Loren Legarda the worst.
Based on new information we just received, we have revised our choice for best-dressed. The award now goes to Representative Leni Robredo, widow of the late Interior and Local Governments Secretary Jesse Robredo.
We arrived at our new choice after we found out that Robredo sneaked out of the red carpet and used the back stairway to get into the assembly hall. A photographer caught the great escape and the photo has now gone viral on social media.
We understand that the red carpet-shy Robredo has been doing this for three years in a row now, except that this hear, she was caught in the act.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union Address (SOTU) before the U.S. Congress and the American people at 9pm Eastern time on Tuesday, January 20. He is expected to focus on middle-class economics.
Unlike in previous SOTU’s, this year’s will have a new feature – the red carpet ceremonies – much like the Academy Awards (Oscars) red carpet.
The Republican-controlled Congress recently voted to hold the pre-speech fashion ceremonies, something that it copied from the Philippines’ State of the Nation Address (SONA).
All eyes will be focused on what Michelle Obama will be wearing. Or Michele Bachmann for that matter.
If you don’t have cable TV, you are out of luck. The SOTU red carpet ceremonies will be shown exclusively on CNN beginning at 7pm Eastern. The CNN red carpet coverage will be hosted by CNN anchor Don Lemon and the late Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa.
