Kaleidoscope 2010: Important Events in Entertainment (Part 3/4)
Going to the third quarter of 2010, the world of television became dominant with the end of midseason fillers and the start of Fall series. The months before winter came were also deemed perfect for weddings. Such celebrities as Anna Paquin and Hilary Duff chose to tie the knot in August. Meanwhile, big studios recovered from the summer movies fiesta and began mapping out the films they are releasing in the next two years.
Through this Kaleidoscope, AceShowbiz presents the important events happening in the entertainment world in the last 12 months. Divided into quarters, the annual Kaleidoscope is published between December 28 and 31.
Despite her worldwide success, Lady GaGa was not illegible for 2010 Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards because she received a nomination for Best Dance Recording in 2009. Controversies had since erupted following the exclusion, prompting the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) to change rules for the category to avoid another drama in the coming years. Now, any artists as long as they haven't released an album and haven't won a Gramophone can be nominated for the coveted nod.
