The year 2019 is coming to an end — the last of the 10 years of the XXI century. What events concerning the stars and world culture do we remember the most? Here are some of the most famous!
In 2010, at the MTV Video Music Awards, singer Lady Gaga surprised and discouraged those present by appearing in an outfit created ... from real meat! The dress by designer Frank Fernandez was negatively perceived by the public and raised a new wave of conversations about animal rights. A clear fashion failure!
On April 29, 2011, viewers around the world clung to the screens, watching live the wedding ceremony of the eldest son of Princess Diana and Kate Middleton. William is second in line to the throne after his father Charles.
In July 2011, the last part of the movie about the boy wizard was released: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2". Books and films about Potter is still popular today, and in 2016 a whole theme park was opened! In addition, the third part of the saga of fantastic creatures from the world of Harry Potter is being prepared for release.
It can be said without a doubt that the 10s were the heyday of TV series, the budgets of each series of which approach the budgets of feature films (and sometimes significantly exceed them). Of these, it is worth noting the adaptation of George Martin's monumental work "Game of Thrones", which has not yet been completed, with its own finale and features.￼ Dragons, castles, magic… Harry Potter again, but for a more adult audience!
Marvel Comics — an almost endless source of inspiration for the film industry. In 2012, after the frenzied success of the Iron Man and Spider-Man films, the adaptation of the Avengers comics began. By the last part of the saga, released in 2019, viewers were finally confused by dozens of heroes from different plots who, shoulder to shoulder, rebuffed universal evil.
At the 2014 Oscar ceremony, Ellen DeGeneres gathered a dozen stars of the first magnitude (Jared Leto, Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence) to take... selfies! This photo quickly bypassed the Internet, and since then the popularity of "selfies" has grown by orders of magnitude.
The erotic romance of a millionaire and a student captured the imagination of millions of viewers. The books began to be published in 2011, and the film adaptations successfully adjusted to Valentine's Day in 2015-2017 and brought more than a billion dollars in profit.
In December 2015, our favorite characters returned to us after a ten-year break. The seventh episode attracted both old fans of the saga and a new generation. The ninth one will be released very soon ("Star Wars: Skywalker, Sunrise"), which will finish all the restart stories at once.
"And "Oscar" gets... "La La Land"! Oh, sorry, no!" In 2017, at the 89th Statuette Ceremony, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway opened the wrong envelope, announcing the best film of the year. But when the happy actors and director went up on stage, it turned out that the film "Moonlight" actually won.
One of the main events of the decade, of course, was the #metoo flash mob, which appeared after Harvey Weinstein's accusations of violence. Actress Rose McGowan was not afraid to tell the truth and turned on the domino effect. In Russia, the hashtag #Yaneboyus was also used to tell.
Now Grace Kelly is not the only one who has changed her job as an actress to the role of a royal person. The star of the series "Force Majeure" married Diana's youngest son on May 18, 2018. She was not a British virgin of noble birth, but every year it becomes less important.
