The 78th Golden Globes awards took place on Sunday — although this year, the red carpet and flashing lights of photographers were replaced with a bi-coastal virtual event hosted from both New York City and the ceremony’s usual location in Beverly Hills, California. The evening's big movie winner was the film Nomadland, which took home best motion picture drama while its director, Chloe Zhao, was awarded best director, making her the first woman since 1984 and the first woman of Asian descent to ever win the prestigious award. The unique road trip story, starring Francis McDormand in the lead role, tells the tale of a woman who decides to live her life out of a van, meeting others who have chosen to do the same along the way. 'Nomadland' director Chloé Zhao is the first woman of Asian descent to win best director Although McDormand was up for best actress, the winner for best actress in a motion picture drama was Andra Day for her role in the biographical film The … [Read more...] about Diversity grabs spotlight at this year’s Golden Globes

Lasting love is something football mogul Harry Redknapp knows all about. After all, it was 56 years ago that he met and fell in love with local hairdresser Sandra, who he remains married to to this day. Harry - just 17 and stacking supermarket shelves while starting out with West Ham - first clapped eyes on his one true love at a Sunday night disco at the Two Puddings pub in Stratford and plucked up the courage to ask her to dance. "I was just like, you know... she was just lovely," Harry - who turns 74 today - once told the Daily Mail. Three years later, on June 30 1967, they tied the knot in a ceremony at Barking Abbey church followed by sandwiches and cake at a social club in Ilford. Along came their two sons, Jamie, 47, and model Mark Redknapp, and Harry also suddenly found himself related to his teammate Frank Lampard Sr when the latter married Sandra's twin sister Patricia. "The boys got their mums’ looks and their dads’ football genes," he previously told the … [Read more...] about Harry Redknapp’s hint Jamie could have saved Louise marriage amid own 56-year love story

It was 3am when Amanda Barrie was woken by her landline ringing. She knew a call at that time is hardly ever good news. Half awake she answered, relieved but bemused to hear the excitable voice on the other end. “We have worked together before,” exclaimed a delighted Johnny Briggs. “I’ve just seen us!” This was the late Eighties, and just a few years into what would be Mike and Alma Baldwin’s 20-year love story, the pair were already one of the nation’s favourite Coronation Street couples. Off-screen, Johnny relied just as much on charisma and cheeky-chappy charm to get him out of scrapes as his alter ego. Scrapes such as ringing his co-star in the middle of the night to report they had unknowingly been in the same film – Doctors in Distress – in 1963. It makes Amanda laugh even now. “I said to him, ‘What are you talking about? It’s three o’clock in the morning!’.
