Jennifer Lawrence Voted Top Money-Making Star of 2013 in Quigley Publishing Company's Annual Poll

GROTON, Mass., Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jennifer Lawrence has been voted the Top Money-Making Star of 2013 in Quigley Publishing Company's 82nd Annual Poll. This is Lawrence's first appearance in the Quigley Poll, and the first time an actor has gone from Star of Tomorrow one year to the Top Money-Making Star the next. After winning an Academy Award and a Golden Globe earlier this year and outstanding performances in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and "American Hustle," theatre owners and film buyers felt Lawrence was responsible for more traffic to movie theatres in 2013 than any other actor. Sandra Bullock, who was in "The Heat" and "Gravity" this year, placed second on the Top Ten Money- Making Stars list. The only other time females were voted the top two spots in history was our first poll in 1932 when Marie Dressler and Janet Gaynor were first and second respectively. Since then, nine women have been voted first in the Top Money-Making Star Poll a total of seventeen years, with Julie Andrews, Doris Day, Shirley Temple and Marie Dressler winning multiple times.

The Quigley Poll, conducted each year since 1932, is an annual survey of motion picture theatre owners and film buyers, which asks them to vote for the ten stars that they believe generated the most box-office revenue for their theatres during the year. It has been long regarded as one of the most reliable indicators of a Star's real box-office draw because the selections are made by professionals whose livelihood depends on choosing the films and actors that will bring audiences to their theatres. It draws a distinction among stars that happen to appear in hit films and those stars that Exhibitors and film buyers believe actually cause an audience to come to their theatres. The Quigley Poll appears annually in Quigley Publishing Company's International Motion Picture Almanac and on our web site: www.quigleypublishing.com. Both list the results of all the Polls since 1932.

Bradley Cooper placed third and was in "The Hangover Part III" and "American Hustle." Tom Hanks, who has been one of the Top Ten draws seventeen times with five first place finishes, was fourth this year with great performances in "Saving Mr. Banks" and "Captain Phillips." Last year's winner, Denzel Washington, was fifth place, appearing in "2 Guns" and Leonardo DiCaprio, who was in "The Great Gatsby" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," was sixth. This is the ninth year that Exhibitors have placed both Washington and DiCaprio in the Top Ten. Robert Downey, Jr. who starred in "Iron Man 3" came in seventh.

Hugh Jackman made his third showing in the Top Ten in eighth place with "The Wolverine," "Prisoners" and "Movie 43." Brad Pitt was voted into the ninth spot and was in "World War Z," "12 Years a Slave" and "The Counselor." Exhibitors recognized Melissa McCarthy's audience appeal and voted her into the Top Ten for the first time this year after a busy 2013 with "Identity Theft," "The Hangover Part III" and "The Heat."

Tom Cruise has not placed in the Poll since 2007, but has been in the Top Ten 20 times since 1983, and been voted number one - the most of any actor - seven times. Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood, Burt Reynolds and Bing Crosby have all won five times. Clint Eastwood has appeared in the poll 21 times starting in 1968. John Wayne, Doris Day and Shirley Temple each finished first four times, but John Wayne was voted one of the Top Ten Money-Making Stars an astounding 25 times from 1949 to 1974.

Exhibitors were also asked to name the Stars of Tomorrow for 2013: one male and one female who they feel will be Top Money-Makers in the years to come. The 2013 winners are Amy Adams who was in "Man of Steel," "Her," and "American Hustle" and the ubiquitous James Franco who acted in "Oz the Great and Powerful," "Spring Breakers," "Lovelace," "Homefront" and "This is the End" in 2013 in addition to writing, producing and directing numerous films.

Quigley Publishing Company was founded in 1915 and has published the International Motion Picture Almanac annually since 1930 and the International Television & Video Almanac since 1955. Historical data, analysis and all of the Top Ten Money-Making Star Polls dating back to 1932 are available in the 2013 edition of the International Motion Picture Almanac and on our web site: www.quigleypublishing.com

James Cameron (Avatar), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky), Nancy Myers (It's Complicated), Paul Haggis (screenwriter, James Bond films - Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale; Million Dollar Baby), and Matt Groening (Simpsons) all started as students at Sherwood Oaks screenwriting school.

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 40 years, it has hosted some of the most successful seminars in Los Angeles. Students who attended seminars have gone on to win 29 Oscars, 12 Emmys, 2 Studio Presidents, and over $4B in box office sales. Become your own success story. Be part of the school that was featured in People magazine, US magazine, talked about in the Tonight Show.

Seminars are open to anyone interested in learning what it takes to succeed in Hollywood. You learn in a close encounter setting where seminars are limited to 18 students.

Seminars include guest speakers by some of the greatest Hollywood producers, executives, agents, managers, writers, and directors. It is a rare opportunity to meet and gain insight from working Hollywood professionals (12 different Hollywood professionals over 3 days).

Like me and many of our friends, we designed these seminars to empower the artistic desire and craft: how Hollywood decision makers decide on how to option a script, make a movie, distribute a movie; how producers, agents and managers chose writers; discover the traits that good writers possess and how new talent is hired; avenues on how a writer transitions to a director, how producers hire writers for assignments, how to get your script to producers without an agent, what is happening in the current market from working successful producers, get ideas on how to make your script more commercial, discover what is hot in the industry, what you need to know on how to succeed before writing or sending out your script, inside secrets and strategies to help you succeed in your Hollywood career, and much more.

These seminars provide rare insight. In addition, twice a year there are celebrity events where an outsider can meet and greet Hollywood actors and directors. The seminars are a platform where people learn from experienced Hollywood professionals. These seminars lend themselves to those curious about the industry, have a screenplay written, those who have won several awards or already established in the industry, all can learn and obtain those much needed contacts and insight. The precious insight that will be shared -- can often save hundreds of hours.

One of the secrets of being successful in entertainment business is to meet working Hollywood professionals as well as celebrities. Gaining contacts while learning first hand can be fun and rejuvenating as one works on their next screenplay or film project. This is where one often finds writers and filmmakers investing to bring their dream or career to the next level.

Although not guaranteed, often times, our students will get an opportunity to have a photo taken with a top celebrity at our celebrity events. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, check out our website and facebook page.

If you are serious about investigating the possibility of getting a movie made or taking your screenwriting/filmmaking business to the next level, then this is a crucial opportunity for you. Those who have won significant screenwriting contests have had opportunities to have their screenplay optioned. It is a seminar where passion and excellence in film/media are exhibited and your potential is unlimited.

Our next seminar is January 22 to 24, 2014 with a celebrity event on January 25, 2014. Events are available throughout the year. Registration is limited due to high demand and limited availability.

Kingdom of Nnewi in Nigeria Celebrates Golden Jubilee


28 Dec 2013 10:00 Africa/Lagos

Kingdom of Nnewi in Nigeria Celebrates Golden Jubilee

NNEWI, Nigeria, December 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

One of the longest serving Monarchs in Nigeria


The ancient Kingdom of Nnewi in the Anambra State of Nigeria today announces the Golden Jubilee of His Royal Highness Igwe Dr. Kenneth Onyemaeke Nnaji Orizu III. CON. JP. The celebrations will be marked by two days of celebrations to include a youth carnival and youth night on 27 December.

(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20131228/662456 )

The celebrations which mark His Royal Highnesses' 50th year of accession to the throne are expected to be attended by thousands of local people from the ancient Kingdom alongside a number of special guests, to include the President and Vice President of Ghana and Governors from some of Nigeria's 36 states. The celebrations will conclude with a church service on 12 January 2014.

At the age of 88, His Royal Highness Igwe Dr. Kenneth Onyemaeke Nnaji Orizu III. CON. JP. The Igwe of Nnewi, who ascended to the throne on 25 May 1963, is one of the longest serving Monarchs in Nigeria. He is the 17th ruler in the Nnewi Royal family lineage which ruled the province long before Britain colonised the West African country in 1900, and amalgamated different Kingdoms into what later became the country of Nigeria. Nnewi has retained its status as an ancient Kingdom and is fully recognised by the country's federal government.

His Royal Highness has been credited with much over his 50 year reign, including:

the abolition of the Osu caste system in the 1970's. Before then, the local Osu people were treated as outcasts and subjected to servitude of various forms;
Being the first, in a long line of Nnewi Monarchs, to embrace Christianity;
modernising the legal system of Nnewi by establishing a Palace panel of Arbitrators for inter personal misunderstandings. To ensure the highest degree of equity, justice and fair play, he also set up an Appeal Panel to review appeals from the Arbitration Committee; and
The new Nnewi market which has given the province prominence as one of the largest commercial cities in Nigeria. It was set up at the instigation of the Monarch, whose vision for uplifting living standards in his domain has been highly commended by his peers


The spokesman for the Royal family, Prince Obi Orizu, said the celebrations were not only aimed at marking the Monarch's 50 years on the throne, but were also a demonstration of the love and respect the people of Nnewi feel towards their King.

Prince Obi added: "By the Grace of God, His Royal Highness Igwe Dr. Kenneth Onyemaeke Nnaji Orizu III. CON. JP. The Igwe of Nnewi, is still fit and strong at the age of 88. By organising the celebration for their King, the people of Nnewi want to wish him many more years so that he can continue his tireless campaign to improve the lives of all his people. Nnewi wants to demonstrate its gratitude for its Monarch and everyone will be welcome to share in our happiness."

NOTES FOR EDITORS:

The celebrations will continue on 29 December with a Cultural festival, followed by mascurades and traditional dances on 30 December. Post anniversary church services will be held at St Peters Catholic Church, Nnewichi, Nnewi
8 on 5 January and on 12 January 2014 at St Mary's Anglican Church, Uruagu, Nnewi.

Below is a list of some of the King's achievements:

CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION:

The King is the first of Nigerian Monarchs to abolish the Osu cast system, thus making everyone in the province of Nnewi free born.

SOCIAL ADVOCACY:

The King dealt with a political crisis in Nnewi by allowing the town in a general assembly to choose a title for him to restore peace in the town. Thereafter, the community named him the GENERAL OF PEACE. His other title is, Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON). The King is a one Star Paul Harris Fellow of Rotary International.

EDUCATION

The King was instrumental in the establishment of a Teachers Training College in Nnewi; now Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nnewi. He also advovated the siting of the College of Health Sciences of the University by encouraging Nnewi people to make significant financial contributions. He personally donated most of the land for the establishment of the school.

BUSINESS

The King facilitated the establishment of New Nnewi market and this market gave Nnewi prominence as one of the largest commercial cities in Nigeria.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Top List of Worst Neighbors in 2013


27 Dec 2013 14:00 Africa/Lagos

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Top List of Worst Neighbors in 2013; Jimmy Fallon Most Desirable Celebrity Neighbor for 2014


One-Third of Americans Do Not Want a Celebrity Neighbor, According to Seventh Annual Zillow Celebrity Neighbor Survey


SEATTLE, Dec. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. adults would most like to be neighbors with comedian and late-night-show host Jimmy Fallon in 2014, according to the seventh annual Zillow® Celebrity Neighbor Surveyi. Newly engaged couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were named the least desirable neighbors of 2013.

Meanwhile, 34 percent of surveyed adults said they would not want to live next to any celebrities listed in the poll, down from 45 percent last year. This is the largest drop in the survey's history. The annual Zillow survey asks U.S. adults which celebrities they would most like to be their neighbor, and with whom they wouldn't want to share a fence.

Most Desirable Neighbors for 2014
Fallon was the top choice for a neighbor in the coming year, earning 11 percent of surveyed adults' votes. The comedian's popularity was highest among young adults surveyed (14 percent), and slightly more popular among females (12 percent) compared with males (10 percent).

Last year's winners, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, tied for second place along with Jennifer Lawrence, each receiving 10 percent of the votes. However, young adults surveyed (ages 18-34) preferred to live next to "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" actress Lawrence (17 percent) rather than the country music couple (8 percent).

Worst Neighbors for 2013
Reality-TV personality Kardashian and her music mogul fiancee West topped the list of worst neighbors for the year. One-quarter of surveyed Americans found the couple, who had a baby and got engaged this year, to be the most undesirable neighbors of 2013. Only 2 percent of respondents said they would prefer to live next to "Kimye" in the coming year.

Eighteen percent of respondents found the cast of the reality TV show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" to be the worst neighbors, down slightly from topping last year's worst neighbor list at 21 percent of the votes. Singers Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus tied for the third worst neighbors of 2013 (16 percent), and ranked higher on the list by large margins compared to competitors Lady Gaga (4 percent), Alex Rodriguez (2 percent) and Lebron James (1 percent).

"It's been a landmark year for Jimmy Fallon. He had his first baby, headlined a successful comedy tour and was named Jay Leno's successor to 'The Tonight Show.' He carries a positive, funny and relatable vibe, which people would love to have in a neighbor," said Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky. "Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, on the other hand, have a reputation for living an over-the-top lifestyle, with drama and the paparazzi never too far behind. No one wants to live next door to a family who has cameras following them everywhere and seems to seek out as much attention as possible. However, with more than one-third of surveyed Americans preferring a non-celebrity neighbor, what remains clear is that many people don't want to live next to any celebrity, regardless of why they are famous."
