Golden Globes Will Add A Third Category To The Film Awards Starting In 2017

imageHOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Beginning in 2017, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) will add a third category to its annual Golden Globe Awards.

HFPA announced the new category after being deluged with criticism about tonight’s Golden Globe award for ‘The Martian’ and Matt Damon for Best Picture and Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

The new category will be ‘Motion Picture That’s Neither Drama Nor Musical or Comedy.’

Film producers and actors applauded the HFPA announcement because it would increase their chances of getting nominated or awarded for the Golden Globes.


imageHOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – ‘The Martian,’ starring Matt Damon playing the role of an astronaut left behind and presumed dead on planet Mars, was so funny and the musical numbers so  outstanding that it was nominated today in three categories for the Golden Globe Awards.

The film picked up three nominations: Best Director (Ridley Scott), Best Actor in a Motion Picture in a Musical or Comedy (Matt Damon), and Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

But if you are among the many who were so confused and angered about today’s announcement nominating the film in the comedy or musical category for the annual awards handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, you can relax.  It was a hoax, as confirmed this evening by The Adobo Chronicles.

HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Is it film imitating life, or life imitating film?

Following Monday’s earth-shattering announcement by NASA that scientists have discovered flowing water — ergo, life — on Mars, the space agency unveiled its new spaceship  scheduled to head for the red planet in mid- 2016, with human crew members.

In addition to two astronauts still to be selected and named, NASA has offered a seat on the spaceship to private individuals who would cough up  five million dollars for the experience.

It didn’t take long for that seat to be filled.

Actor Matt Damon who, incidentally, stars in a new Hollywood film, “The Martian,” just sent NASA a cashier’s check for $5 Million.

The film, to be released by 20th Century Fox, opens in theaters worldwide starting in October.

Damon says that his portrayal of an astronaut left for dead after a botched mission on Mars, was so realistic that he felt it was almost like the “real thing.”  “So, to complete the experience, I would like to be part of a human mission to further explore life on the red planet,” Damon stated in his application to NASA.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump also expressed interest in the human mission, but he wanted to wait and see if he gets his party’s nomination for president in the 2016 elections. “I am prepared to pay one billion dollars for the experience,” Trump said.

(We hope that if Trump is selected, it would be a one-way ticket to Mars!)
