Jimmy Jean-louis - Guests attend the second day of the American Black Film Festival screening of 'Everything But A Man' at Regal Cinemas at Regal Cinemas South Beach 18 & IMAX - Miami Beach, Florida, United States - Saturday 18th June 2016
Joy Mangano always wanted to be an inventor and, after getting married, having three children and then getting divorced, she finally decides to follow her dream. It's often the male entrepreneurs that people remember in history, but Joy proves that women can be just as powerful as she rises to become president of her own company, Ingenious Designs, and invents the cutting edge cleaning system, 'Miracle Mop'; all while taking care of a family on her own and running into some difficult circumstances along the way. Betrayed, occasionally on the wrong side of the law and suffering from many losses, Joy is the living embodiment of what doesn't kill you makes you stronger - and with millions of dollars in sales, she's certainly stronger.

Jimmy Jean-louis - Hollywood Domino & Bovet 1822's 8th Annual Pre-Oscar Hollywood Domino Gala & Tournament at Sunset Tower Hotel - West Hollywood, California, United States - Friday 20th February 2015
Celebrities have flocked to the Sunset Tower Hotel in order to support the Hollywood Domino Gala for the eighth year in a row, raising money for charities.
In 2008, Daya Fernandez thought of a fun little variation on the traditional game of dominos. Said game involves players using the pieces to make 'movie reels' - an idea that has certainly found a home with Hollywood's elite. Over the past eight years, a Hollywood Domino Gala has taken place in London, New York, the Cannes Film Festival, Puerto Rico, but the most important an prestigious event on the calendar takes place in in Los Angeles, on the Thursday before each year's Oscar ceremony.

Basically, Heroes is a comic book come to life, telling us of average people who suddenly find they have special, superhuman powers.

The story that evolves over the 23 episodes of season one ultimately concern a serial killer, Sylar (Zachary Quinto), who is preying on superheroes and sucking out their powers for himself, and a nuclear bomb that is foretold by one hero to decimate New York City. Somehow the heroes are involved... but they might be able to stop it.

While you chew on that stunning display of gender politics, Phat Girlz continues to lob out broad slapstick humor - including an honest to God insult-off featuring fat jokes vs. you-so-ugly ones - and utterly one-note cliché characters. The plot, such as it is, finally gets going when Jazmin wins a trip to a posh Palm Springs resort and brings her two best friends, her skinny-bitch cousin Mia (Joyful Drake) and her fellow "sexy succulent," the reserved, schoolmarmish Stacy (Kendra C. Johnson). Jazmin catches the eye of Tunde (Jimmy Jean-Louis), a Nigerian doctor visiting for a medical conference, who likes his women "thick." Despite Jazmin's tendency to rudeness and blatant grilling of him, his intentions, and his beliefs, Tunde pursues her with a single-mindedness only found in romantic comedies.
