He can now vote for the Oscars!
Larry Mullen has become the first member of U2 to be invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences which means… he can now vote for who wins the Oscars! Bet Bono is only ragin’… however, he’s kind of busy right now as U2 yesterday launched their SiriusXM radio channel (only available in the US at the moment). Bono will be behind the mic for Bono Calling where he will talk philanthropy with people from all walks of life.
And in other showbizzy news:
Jason Donovan has had a long career in TV and stage and he’s also had some personal highs – remember last year we reported on him saving an elderly neighbour from a fire in his underpants?!
Well, he has said that his proudest achievement to date is the fact that his real life daughter Jemma has a part of Neighbours… playing a long-lost member of Scott’s family!
This is particularly poignant this week because – and apologies to those who fell old by this – yesterday was Scott and Charlene’s 33rd wedding anniversary. THIRTY THREE YEARS AGO. So it’s 32 years since Charlene went off to Brisbane on her mechanic apprenticeship, and 31 years since Scott joined her and they lived happily ever after.
