Cuarón Named One of Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainers of the Year

There’s no denying Alfonso Cuarón has had a gravity-defying year…  And now he’s being honored for his remarkable year.

Entertainment Weekly has named the 52-year-old Mexican filmmaker as one of its 2013 Entertainers of the Year, which celebrates the year’s standouts in the entertainment industry.

Alfonso Cuarón

Cuarón is being feted for the remarkable worldwide success of his latest film Gravity.

The 3D science fiction thriller and space drama, starring fellow honoree Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, has earned more than $615 million dollars worldwide, making it the second biggest hit of his career behind only Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. And the film is still going strong at the global box office.

So what was Cuarón’s most memorable day of 2013?

”I wish I could tell you that it’s about Gravity — something that was great and cool, like the premiere in Venice. But actually it was one day in the summer when I was traveling with my kids and my girlfriend and her kids. We were in this tributary of the Amazon in this little boat, and it started to rain right after sunset. We were making our way back to the big boat, and all the kids suddenly started to sing ‘We Are Young’ by fun. in the middle of nowhere. At the top of their lungs. It was very sweet. If I remember one moment, it’s that one.”

Entertainment Weekly’s other honorees include twerking girl Miley Cyrus and Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence.

Gomez Receives Do Something Award & Grant

She may not be a Hollywood A-lister… But Katia Gomez is being touted for her A-list efforts to help those less fortunate.

The 24-year-old Latina philanthropist was the big winner at this year’s Do Something Awards, organized by DoSomething.org, which recognize celebrities and philanthropists for their charitable and activist efforts.

Gomez took her own passion for education and created Educate2Envision to show the opportunities that education can bring. Educate2Envision works in three remote and has brought secondary education to more than 450 students.
