Affleck’s ‘Argo’ scores another Hollywood award

LOS ANGELES: Ben Affleck’s thriller “Argo” scooped up another award late Sunday, receiving the best adapted screenplay prize from the Writers Guild of America just a week before the Oscars.
“Zero Dark Thirty” got the best original screenplay prize at the WGA ceremony, which took place seven days before the 85th Academy Awards will cap off Tinseltown’s annual awards season at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
The best WGA documentary screenplay award went to “Sugar Man,” while prizes for work in television were distributed among “Breaking Bad” (drama series), “Louie” (comedy series) and “Girls” (new series).
Aflleck’s Iran hostage drama has swept up top prizes at key award shows ahead of Hollywood’s top award night, including the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), Producers Guild of America (PGA), the Directors Guild of America (DGA), and Britain’s BAFTA.
It has won seven Oscar nominations, though not in the best director category, which was perceived as a snub to Affleck.

Once again! Ahlam latest appearance on The Voice draws attention

CAIRO: Once again, Ahlam’s latest appearance on The Voice has left the prorgam’s fans divided on social media.
All eyes were on the Emirati star whom, as usual, sparked controversy with her latest haircut and outfit during Saturday’s night show.
Surprisingly, Ahlam Al-Shamsi applied blue ombre tips to the end of her short, wavy black hair styled by Lebanese hairdresser Tony Sawaya. She also wore a black henna tattoo on her forehead and chin in what fans saw as a bold move.
Her causal outfit was by French fashion house Balmain, made of an embroidered black shirt with a long white cardigan on top.
“What do you think of my look tonight?” the singer wrote on Instagram to see her fans’ reactions.
“It’s different, I know,” she added.
Some fans accepted her appearance, commending how elegant and fashionable the icon looked.
Others wrote to her saying she looked better in simple appearance, with some writing harsh, anti-tattoo comments on her page.
