At Long Last: Act 3 of 'THE BETTY AWARDS' - Miscellaneous Array of Favorite Artists


Sorry it took so long to get back to The Betty Awards; have received many requests to “get on with it.” I’ve just been so busy writing another blog for Dames of Dialogue and trying to pull all the material together for my next book… Well, most of you know how busy we authors keep… Besides that, my computer was down for almost two weeks.

Even Cousin Oscar is getting impatient with me, telling me he’s going to tell Grammy on me… And I wouldn’t want to make her mad. I guess I’m stirring up a lot of the competition. Even Tony and Cleo e-mailed me, trying to get me to tell them who the winners in Act 3 are and who would be doing the presenting… Fat chance of that! I know they’d run right to their media sources and try to scoop me…

But the day finally arrived and this evening we honored more deserving artists. Our presenters for Act 3 are among Hollywood’s elite, Actor James Zimbardi and Procuder Woodrow Wilson Hancock III. They did a marvelous job, adding dignity, grace and humor to the show. Speaking of shows, Zimbardi’s latest role is in a hilarious comedy movie titled Man Life Crisis, which he also produced along with Hancock. Zimbardi and Hancock are in film festivals until October with their film Waking and are in post-production on a project called Watertown. Both have more projects in the works and will keep us posted.

Zimbardi and Wilson were pleased to see Armand Mastroianni--the acclaimed director of Man Life Crisis and many Hollywood blockbusters—in the audience to cheer them on. He was accompanied by renowned Producer Ed Polgardy who co-produced Dark Desire which Armand also directed. Polgardy is owner of Black Hat Magic Productions and President of Production for Fotocomics Productions in Hollywood. We can expect more films from him and Mastroianni in the near future.
Among our other surprise guests, I’d like to introduce my special new friends. They’re wonderful fans from the great state of Ohio, my birthplace. Seven of these eight ladies are members of The LOLAS (Lifetime of Laughs and Sisterhood) Book Club. They hail from Westchester, Ohio and have been friends from twenty to twenty-five years. They blew my mind when club member Annette Przygocki organized a tour of the places mentioned in my epic romantic thriller 1106 Grand Boulevard which is set around my childhood home in Hamilton, Ohio, about ten miles from Westchester. When Annette messaged me on Facebook to inform me, she told me they loved the book. That pleased me, of course, but I was overwhelmed about them visiting my childhood home and other hometown sites. Unbelievable…unless you are a Hemingway or a Faulkner! In fact, I enjoyed the taste of what it would be like to be a celebrated author with a legacy that lives on… Thanks, LOLAS. Needless to say, LOLAS is now my favorite Book Club.

And that’s exactly what James Zimbardi told the audience tonight when he presented the first award. Woodrow Wilson Hancock must have agreed with my choices because he gave his 60-watt smile each time he opened an envelope and handed it to his co-presenter.

AND 'THE BETTY' GOES TO:

Entertainment Industry Honored in Act Two of “The Betty Awards” for 2012

 

BETTY DRAVISI’m excited about bringing you Act Two of my Fantasy Betty Awards. Since I’m an author and adore reading books by my peers, my first ceremony was dedicated to them.  It went on for so long, however, I feared tiring our readers and friends, so I saved some book categories for a later production. Not to keep other fine writers on pins and needles, but I’ll feature them in Act Three and hope you all stick around tonight for the movie industry and entertainment awards.

I was encouraged by the positive response from my First Act: everyone was delighted to receive their Betty Awards with many posting theirs all around the internet. I was flabbergasted when Betty winner Emily Hill Tweeted it to twenty-six million Tweethearts… And you thought I got around…  (Cousin Oscar phoned me and he’s so jealous. He said I got more international coverage than he did. When I explained to him that you, dear friends, placed me on a golden pedestal, giving me the courage to name an award after myself, he seemed to understand. After his laughter died down, he said I was vainer than he… Oh, well, he’s family and still adores me…so I won’t worry about him.)

To prove his family fidelity, Oscar’s in our audience tonight, right next to my guest-of-honor Clint Eastwood {who, incidentally, has a heart-shaped Betty (designed in enamel on gold) pinned to his tuxedo lapel}. … sigh... In fact, Oscar seems to be in Heaven since he’s in Director’s Row, not only with Clint but with Quentin Tarantino and Robert Reed Altman, director of Antonia Tosini’s latest movie The Flight of the Shaman. (I saw Dimi Nakov of New Zealand and David Worth working their way down the aisle too.) Director Armand Mastroianni is seated at our table because… More about that below.)

ANTONIA TOSINII’m getting ahead of myself… Guess who flew in all the way from Naples, Italy to be our “presenter” tonight? None other than internationally acclaimed, award-winning screenwriter and author, Antonia Tosini… Her in-production movie is directed by the great Robert Reed Altman, mentioned above. This lovely lady not only has several movies in the making, but she’s also Italy’s Ambassador of Goodwill. For her to take time off from her busy schedule to be with us is, indeed, an honor.

And that’s not all: famous Hollywood filmmaker Armand Mastroianni picked her up at the airport in a long stretch limo and then dropped by to pick me and my entourage up at our West Hollywood hotel. Accompanying me are my best friend Linda Bulger, authors Barbara Watkins, Joanna Lee Doster, Ashley Fontainne, Emily Hill, Gladys Quintal, Linda Leander, Daniel L. Carter, Dr. Niamh Clune, Janet Beasley and Wayne Zurl. Yes, we have chosen Hollywood for Act Two because it’s all about the film and entertainment industry this time.

ARMAND MASTROIANNINow it’s time for the awards and I’d like to thank Cousin Oscar for getting us booked into one of the smaller theaters for our ceremony. It isn’t Dolby Theater but we don’t have as many guests so that would not have been appropriate. Everything about this theater is glamorous and glitzy, reminiscent of Old Hollywood with modern trappings…so this setting is perfect ambience.

Since Armand Mastroianni has the envelopes in hand, ready to assist my mentor and dear friend Antonia Tosini in presenting the awards...ON WITH THE SHOW, my friends! (You will notice that even though these awards are for movies and entertainment, one author is receiving an award because her book is in a special movie category. And remember, more authors in Act 3 of The Betty Awards.)

Don't forget to place the colorful Betty Award image on your various websites, including Facebook, to show the world you won a BETTY. :-) For those who wish to embed it, message me on Facebook and I'll send the code. It will make me very proud and happy to see my pretty little icon all over the place. I'm so grateful to author Emily Hill for Tweeting it to millions of Twitter Tweethearts. Thanks, Emily, and all Act One winners who have posted this icon on your sites. And thanks again to Joni Lynn of Blue Harvest Creatives for designing the icon and my new website top banner. Aren't they cool?

See you at the next presentations which will be for artists, book covers, comedians and more authors, of course. I never tire of favoring authors. Now I'm soing to go tell my kids all about seeing Clint again and how he came to our table and... Well, it's for family only... After all, it's MY fantasy... :-)

Move Over, Oscar! Here Comes Betty! 

“The Betty Awards” for 2012


 Betty DravisI am very pleased with the year 2012... family-wise and book-wise.  Grandson Seth got accepted into that Esko Bionics program and is walking with aid of their innovative invention.  He was supposed to participate for a few weeks, but he did so much better than others that they keep calling him back. He seems to be their poster boy. This program gave him a new lease on life. We haven’t seen him so positive and upbeat since an accident that left him with a spinal cord injury fourteen years ago. Sadly, it will be a few years before the equipment is available to the public, but now he has hope and renewed strength and determination. Praise God for miracles… Also, several granddaughters won scholastic honors and women achievement awards. With nine grandchildren, five great-grands and one great-great granddaughter, I could go into endless detail here, but will refrain; saving that for other blogs, tweets…and snippets to share on Facebook.

As for my literary works, I published two new e-books in 2012, won two new writing awards, personally, and two awards with my co-author Barbara Watkins for both books in our SIX-PACK series. Also I made some impressive new online friends and received rave reviews from three acclaimed movie directors…and the great John Locke, the idol of all independently-published authors.

I’m so happy, I want to spread the joy, so I came up with another of my spectacular ideas. :-)

I decided to initiate “The Betty Awards”… my very own “awards” ceremony.

Anyone want to win a Betty? Now before you start laughing, read on… Maybe then you will laugh with me, not at me.

Without a doubt, this is the height of vanity to present an award named after oneself, but my friends encourage my “funkiness” and have come to expect it of me. (If you read their complimentary articles and outrageous comments about me, you will see what I mean.) Things like this are now part of my branding, so I hope you accept my “Betty” with the same pleasure that movie stars accept my cousin Oscar. Let me have my fun! :-)

Katherin "Kat" Kovin Pacino on the Red CarpetThat said, let’s get on with the awards. On my whimsical red carpet, we have Hollywood Insider, Katherin Kovin Pacino opening the envelopes for us this week. Kat is a dynamo at multi-tasking: actress/producer/writer/contributing author/humanitarian and artist. And in case you don’t know, she is the stepmother of living legend Al Pacino. I’m sure you will enjoy Kat; she’s not only a “hottie,” she’s charming and has the happiest laugh in show business. But far more important is that Kat’s sincere; the dearest of friends, never failing to phone me at important times in my life. (She just seems to know when I need to hear from her…) 

I hope you like The Betty Award logo created for me by Joni Lynn of Blue Harvest Creatives. I think it’s the cutest little thing in the world, so am pleased to present the very first Betty Award to BHC for “originality of design.” Congratulations to Joni and staff. (I’m sure Kat won’t mind me announcing the first winner; it just seems to fit here.)

I love all my friends on Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, Author Central, Celebrating Authors, Deserves Cupcakes, On the Plum Tree, Go Indie and Paranormal Group, to mention a few. I have so many talented authors, entertainers and artists to acknowledge…but tonight I’m starting with authors, with the exception of a few special awards of the evening. The last is a surprise and you’ll see why when we arrive at the end of The Awards Ceremony.

Before Kat announces the talented winners, I’d like to say that I will post the special code for the Betty Icon at the bottom of this blog so that you recipients can post the icon on your website or other pages, if you wish. I think my Betty icon is aesthetic enough to enhance even the most elegantly formatted website. (Would love your feedback…later…) Now sit back and enjoy...

AND THE WINNERS ARE…
