Miss Georgia Betty Cantrell was elected the new Miss America 2016 to win the coveted prize and the title of the most beautiful in America. I'm still in shock, so I do not know else to say except thank you said the girl to reporters immediately after the coronation. The victory of the 21 year old model from Warner Robins, however, was to say the least obscured by a long controversy during the broadcast last night where has returned to the event Vanessa Williams, Miss America 1984, who gave up the throne because of a nude photo shoot she had taken. I want to apologize for what was said and done said the patron of the event and president of Sam Haskell.

Miss America is a competition that rewards young women from fifty states and two of the four territories of the United States of America with scholarships. The winner of the first prize is invested with the title of Miss America ​​for a whole year. The parade began as a beauty contest in 1921, but now the organizers prefer to avoid using this term, at least since the parades in swimsuit and in evening dress affect, overall, only thirty-five percent of the total points used to judge the competitors.

The first parade was held in Atlantic City, in New Jersey, and the next you are always held in this city in September of each year until 2004 except for the 2000, when it was celebrated on October 14. In January 2006 the competition was moved to its current headquarters in Las Vegas, in Nevada. The competition, in fact, looks like a "school" and the main prizes for the winner and the immediate consist of scholarships to institutions of their choice.

The project grants of Miss America, with its federal, state and local levels, is the largest program in the world of financial support to the study of young women annually allocates over 45 million dollars in cash and scholarships.

Since most of the competitors has already graduated from a college , or is about to achieve it, many of them use the prize money to attend graduate school or professional school or to pay off their debts to the studies already made.

Usually, the premium is sufficient to address fully the studies even when confined to the stage or state of local competition. Miss America 2007 was held at Aladdin Resort and Casino (now renamed Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino ) on January 29, a Monday. It is the first time that the parade takes place not in the traditional Saturday night.

On 30 March 2007, the broadcaster Country Music Television announced that it will be more full of TV coverage of the event. The organization has been for several months in search of a new television channel for the transmission of the parade until the agreement with the issuer TLC, which also marked the return of Saturday night as the final evening of the event.

The parade and the live broadcast, which marked the coronation of Kirsten Haglund , took place Saturday January 26, 2008. Miss America is connected with a variety of smaller programs across the United States.

Select individual competitions at the local city or county, their representatives such as, for example Miss Mobile that are sent to participate in parades state in the example Miss Alabama. The winners of the various parades state and parades of Miss District of Columbia and Miss Virgin Islands compete for the title of Miss America at the annual national competition. Miss Virgin Islands participated for the first time in 2004. Currently, it is expected to elect a Miss Puerto Rico or Miss Guam which is valid for the national competition.

A form of social engagement became a requirement of the competitors of Miss America, from the parade of 1989. Programs promoted by former Miss America included the research and prevention of AIDS, research on diabetes, as well as campaigns for veterans homeless , against domestic violence , to encourage teenagers to volunteer, and to help patients cancer in the terminal phase.

During the test, Evening , the contestant is asked a random question, taken from a predetermined list, to which he must respond on stage without having had a chance to prepare. The questions focus on current and generally relate to the great events going on. The test application assesses the interest with which the candidate follows the great record and its ability to form an opinion of the essential facts. The Question about the stage changes the total score for the 5 percent.

A costume section newspaper was introduced in Miss America 2003 and was later borrowed by various competitions related to state and local level and since 2006 has been abolished and is not currently in use at any level of competition. In the test Evening , the competitor is judged by the way in which wearing the dress and parade around the stage. Evidence Evening worth 20 points out of a hundred.

In the test Swimsuit candidate parading on stage in costume and high heels. The contest Miss America sets minimum standards of decorum to which the swimsuit must be complied with. The judgment, in this part of the competition, focuses on physical fitness, the gait and posture. Until recent years, the competitors were required to wear identical swimsuits classics. Recently, the organization gives the competitors the opportunity to choose the less opaque two-piece costumes, bikinis or swimsuits more fashionable. In 1996 , the contest held a tele-voting to ask the audience if they wanted that evidence Costume should continue or not. The 87 percent of spoke in favor of keeping. The influence of the test Costume score aspiring Miss is 15 percent.

In the competition reserved to Private interview each contestant converses with the judges on a variety of topics, from the frivolous to the most serious political and social issues. The competitor receives a score based on the goodness of speech, cultural staff, the range of vocabulary and self-mastery. This competition is less known to the general public of the other because, unlike the other four, does not take place on the stage of a theater and is generally transmitted by television. Private Interview accounts for 25 per cent on the total score of the candidate.

Miss Universe never ceases to amaze between participants and emotional leg deadlifts supermodel, are staged also national costumes sometimes embarrassing of the preliminary show. Feathers by majestic tropical parrots, waterfalls rhinestones, applications and a perpetually unstable equilibrium between I see and do not see.

But you know, Miss Universe 2015 could not be less than ever before, so the show prior to this year, saw the contestants dress up the usual extravagant national clothes, many of which are worthy of going up on the wagons of the Carnival in Rio.

Oh yes, because the international event, which sees aspiring to the title slide in elegant evening dresses, showing the perfection of its forms thanks to the catwalk in swimwear and answer the questions of the jury to show that in addition to the leg's more (forgive us if we quote Gio Ringing in this post), also has its own little moment trash with the preliminary ceremony, made ​​of highly original costumes and anything but sober (10+ Miss Venezuela in the tweet below that chose the fluorescent yellow color not to go unnoticed).

Then you will be pleased to know that the organizing team, I do not pay the publication of videos and photos with the Miss dressed up, also has the sly habit of pouring out to interested viewers and sailors of the official website, a contest via social network to vote clothes most beautiful.

For the fifth year rewarded by the public have been Miss Universe Argentina, a bit Xena: Warrior Princess and a little Araba Fenice, Miss Universe Canada, in version Marie Antoinette tempered with a passion for ice hockey, Miss Universe Germany who honored the fall of the Berlin Wall with a cloak theme, Miss Universe India with much laying goddess Khali and Miss Universe Indonesia, who for their own costumes took inspiration from Borobudur Temple, a UNESCO heritage site.

Miss Universe is a beauty pageant organized by the Miss Universe Organization. It is one of the most prestigious competitions in the world, followed each year by approximately 600 million viewers. Born in California in 1952, the contest is currently managed by American tycoon Donald Trump, who has acquired the rights in 1996. Miss World is one of the beauty pageants most famous and important. It was founded in the United Kingdom by Eric Morley in 1951. Since his death in 2000, the competition has passed into the hands of his wife Morley, Julia Morley.

The competition was founded in 1952 together with that of Miss USA, created by the line of swimsuits Catalina who had terminated the sponsorship deal with the competition of Miss America last year. The event is now a great response from the public and participation so as to become a real televised annual event since 1955. In 1960 the American television network CBS bought the rights to the programming of the competition and then sell them to the NBC only in the 2003. Miss Universe has now become by far the most prestigious beauty pageant in the world and famous.

The format of the competition has undergone small changes over the years. Currently, candidates spend an average of 4 weeks in the host usually in summer attending galas, events and meetings with the public. The 15 semi-finalists are chosen during a preliminary competition, which was held a few days before the final night. This preliminary competition is divided into three categories interview with the judges discuss with each candidate to test general knowledge, personal projects and aspirations, parade in swimsuits often a sponsor of the lines and parade in evening gown chosen and procured by the applicant in its sole discretion.

The two parades are held consecutively in the same evening, a day or two after the round of interviews. The Trump Organization, the current owners of the competition, 6 of the semi-finalists selected by the judges independently. In past years, the number of semi-finalists has varied, but there were never less than 10 years with more than 20 semi-finalists or the night of the final, the semi-finalists are announced during the live broadcast, and must then compete in swimsuit or dress evening the format now appears in alternate years.

The 10 contestants with the highest scores advance and after another round of competition, the 5 finalists are selected. The final result is determined by a round of questions and answers between the judges and competitors with the general impression on the performance and beauty of the individual competitor. The judges of the final is always different from the preliminary judges.

The photogenic award Miss Photogenic deserves attention separately assigned in the past by the photographers involved in the coverage of the event, is now instead voted directly by the public via the Internet. As a result, the year of change in the rules the prize went four times in succession to the representative of Puerto Rico and three times that of the Philippines , both countries known for their extreme attachment to beauty contests.

The role of Miss Universe after the election is especially linked to the charity. The organization of the competition supports causes such as the fight against AIDS and Miss Universe fails to amass millions and millions of dollars each year to spare. In addition, the winner travels the world participating in different types of events beauty contests, openings, top, visits to hospitals or troops abroad and so on that is requested or must appear in the contract. Along with the victory, Miss Universe wins a scholarship for two years at the New York Film Academy worth $ 100,000, a salary for the duration of the license, a large collection of clothes, swimsuits, evening gowns , shoes and beauty products and many other prizes including free stay in a luxury apartment in the Trump Tower in New York.

Each year the competition is regularly one of the most watched television events in the world, with an audience estimated at between 600 and 900 million viewers in 90 countries. The event is particularly popular in South America, especially in countries such as Colombia, the Brazil and especially Venezuela, where beauty contests are part of the national culture and national representatives are subjected to a preparation.

In the past, winners of the competition from these countries have become veritable national heroines finding fame and great response from the public, until you have a life even exemptions from taxes. The competition, in contrast, is a little later in Europe and European competitors have historically had less success, particularly in recent decades. To date, excluding the Russian Oxana Fedorova for his disqualification, the last European to win the title was the Norwegian Mona Grudt in 1990.

The United States is the country with the best results of all: 8 American women candidates won the crown more than any other country and only four from 1952 to date have failed to advance to the semifinals. This is due to the fact that the Miss USA crown every year beauties of the highest level in addition to the fact that the sizes of Miss USA and Miss Universe are identical and the national competition will automatically prepare the winner for the international one. In contrast, the majority of beauty pageants in Europe are structured in a less organic, without preliminary competitions, parades to score or interviews.

Along with the competitions rival Miss Universe and Miss Earth , Miss World is one of the most publicized beauty contests in the world. The beauty contest Miss World started as a contest of bikini , in honor of the recent launch of the swimsuit , but was renamed Miss World by the mass media . It was initially planned as a single event, but following the fashion of Miss Universe was decided to repeat it annually. However, in subsequent years, the bikini was replaced by swimsuits. In 1959 , the BBC began broadcasting television in the event, increasing greatly the popularity of the event.

In the eighties the competition lost appeal on the audience, and they tried with the slogan Beauty with a purpose the competitors, as well as parade had to undergo texts of intelligence and personality. Nevertheless, the competition was considered out of fashion and not Politically correct in the UK. It was during these years that for a short time the contest was owned by Transworld Communications . Before the competition will be re-broadcast on television will have to wait until 1998 when Channel 5 began to transmit Miss World.

Eric Morley died with the advent of the new millennium and the post of organizer of the competition was taken over by his wife Julia.The new millennium also saw the first win Miss World Africa, Agbani Darego, in 2001. As part of a new strategy of marketing Miss World launches television special You decide, which displays the competitors in the behind the scenes of the competition and in some moments of everyday life, and the viewer is given the opportunity to vote for their favorite through televoting.

In 2002 the final of the competition will be held in Abuja , capital of Nigeria. It is a very controversial choice, because in the days of the competition a Nigerian woman, Amina Lawal, was waiting to be executed in accordance with local, for committing adultery . The organization of Miss World took advantage of the world-shaking event to turn the attention of the media also of Amina.

The Rai's Set without suspecting that they are not married: Arun is an unemployed person who has the listing has towards Miss Mary, the daughter of an old Christian-married couple, asked his wife, to play, so that they both get the jobs. The work is both fast fun, even if the cohabitation certainly causes problems.

When the young Sita (Jamuna) of a wealthy family in Arun dance and singing lessons takes growing in Mary's jealousy. Meena Kumari is known for its powerful images of suffering Hindu women. All the better to see them in one of her few roles where it is not plagued by martyrdom and self-doubt, but must play with relish her ​​comedic talent. Miss Mary, an Indian brand of Anastasia theme, is compared to movies like Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam or Pakeezah course banal material, but not weaker. Kumaris exchange between arrogant cocky gestures schmollendem view and Freud full laughter alone is a reason to see the film, because it copes with everything easily with flying colors.

At her side fade the men, including the real star, Gemini Ganesan, but also his witty scenes has. Kishore Kumar amused as well, including a scene in which he fails at an audition. All the more funny because Kumar was one of the few Bollywood stars who could also sing and vocal career even overshadowed the team career in his case. For this trio are joined by excellent supporting cast, which take over the dashing spirit of the film impeccably and carry 141 minutes.

In the last half hour director LV Prasad would (once starred as an actor in the first sound films of languages ​​Hindi, Tamil and Telugu), the pace must increase slightly. The final itself is indeed jagged vonstatten, but before items are only repeated that have already been treated enough after two hours running time. That a variety of songs is consecutively recorded densely, the pace not just increases. The songs themselves are all well, and I'll probably never mutate to a great fan of the classic Hindi film music of the 30s-50s. But that's just my problem and should not prevent, take this delicious, dazzling played and freshly staged comedy in your collection you. It is worthwhile in any case! And if only for Meena looks.

It was the last film to which collaborated Blake Edwards and the composer Henry Mancini ; Edwards retired as a director, and Mancini died the following year.

The film was poorly at the box office and bad reviews from critics, the latter believe that the series of Pink Panther had now had its day. The film also had to represent the consecration of Roberto Benigni internationally, and instead cost the actor nominated for a Razzie Award as Worst newcomer.

On the French Riviera is kidnapped the daughter of a king Arabic: Princess Yasmine. The case is assigned to the illegitimate son of ' Inspector Clouseau : Gendarme Jacques Gambrelli (played by Roberto Benigni ), which proves identical to his father, a nature disaster.
