Kaleidoscope 2010: Important Events in Entertainment (Part 3/4)

Lady GaGa changed the rule of Grammy Awards, the new Miss Universe was appointed and 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand' lost its leading star.
Going to the third quarter of 2010, the world of television became dominant with the end of midseason fillers and the start of Fall series. The months before winter came were also deemed perfect for weddings. Such celebrities as Anna Paquin and Hilary Duff chose to tie the knot in August. Meanwhile, big studios recovered from the summer movies fiesta and began mapping out the films they are releasing in the next two years.

Through this Kaleidoscope, AceShowbiz presents the important events happening in the entertainment world in the last 12 months. Divided into quarters, the annual Kaleidoscope is published between December 28 and 31.


Lady GaGa's achievement changes the rule of Grammys

Despite her worldwide success, Lady GaGa was not illegible for 2010 Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards because she received a nomination for Best Dance Recording in 2009. Controversies had since erupted following the exclusion, prompting the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) to change rules for the category to avoid another drama in the coming years. Now, any artists as long as they haven't released an album and haven't won a Gramophone can be nominated for the coveted nod.


Crowned Miss Universe comes from Mexico

22-year-old Jimena Navarrete from Mexico succeeded Stefania Fernandez to become the reigning queen at Miss Universe 2010 Pageant. She was consequently the second Mexican delegate to win the title, after Lupita Jones in 1991.


Andy Whitfield before his cancer was back

Andy Whitfield pulled away from the second season of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" after his non-Hodgkin lymphoma returned. Planning an aggressive treatment, he decided to step down from the titular role. Producers then had to decide between canceling the show or replacing him with a new face. They eventually came to agreement that casting a new actor would be more favorable choice.
