25 Striking Portraits Of The 2020 Golden Globe Winners

Top 30 Most Stunning Photos From The National Geographic Instagram Photography Contest

National Geographic has made a name for themselves with their earth-shattering photographs, so it was no surprise that they made Instagram history as the first brand to reach 100 million followers (those are almost Kim Kardashian numbers). To celebrate in true Nat Geo fashion, they opened up a photography contest across the photo-sharing platform – using the hashtag #natgeo100contest. In the 24-hour contest window, the magazine received more than 94,000 photograph submissions. The photo editors and photographers at Nat Geo went through the entries and narrowed them down to the top 10 most stunning images and then let their 10 million followers vote on who would be the grand prize winner. Below you can view the contest winning photo, the top finalists along with some other gorgeous entries that didn’t make the cut but are still just as mind-blowing.

Looking down from above, like a satellite orbiting around the earth, my camera’s view finder presses against my mask, this is one of the most memorable views from My World. Pushing through the strong currents, low visibility and rough waves this day was most definitely worth it. 

For the grand prize, winner Ketan Khambhatta, won Nat Geo photo safari to Tanzania. While the other top 10 finalists received National Geographic photo books signed by their photographers along with having their winning images posted to @NatGeo throughout the week.

#2 Grand Prize Winner Ketan Khambhatta

In the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, zebras search for crocodiles while wildebeest run across the river. Photographer Muhammed Muheisen: The image is so dynamic, with a powerful depth that keeps me looking. A moment well captured.

#3 Sebastien Nagy

Always prefer the focus on a single tower but yes… there is another one right next

#4 Anuroop Krishnan

#5 Chaitanya Deshpande

‘Here Comes The Sun’

#6 Finalist Adam Kiefer

National Park Ranger Matthieu Shamavu embraces Matabishi, an orphaned juvenile mountain gorilla, at the Senkwekwe Center, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Senkwekwe is the only rehabilitation center for mountain gorillas in the world. Photographer Ami Vitale: The image is sublime because we immediately understand that it’s a metaphor for unspeakable brutality but also great tenderness. This image illustrates our complex bond with the natural world.

#7 Brent Stirton

I was totally privileged to spend time with the world’s best pangolin care-givers at the Tikki Hywood Trust for an upcoming natgeo magazine story. I witnessed an extraordinary relationship unfold as these men helped rescued, traumatized pangolin to find ants and termites to eat and kept them safe from predators and poachers. Pangolins are the world’s most trafficked animal in the illegal wildlife trade and are extraordinarily endangered. The Tikki Hywood Trust undertakes public awareness campaigns, trains law enforcement and judiciary personnel, conducts research, and rehabilitates pangolins that have been confiscated from the illegal trade. They operate with partners across Africa and advise in Asia. A recently opened extension Tikki Hywood Trust Foundation cameroon is doing great work in the epicenter of the illegal pangolin world. Founder Lisa Hywood is seen as a global expert on how to care for Pangolins in captivity and along with partner Ellen Connelly, they represent an extraordinary example of how to care for animals. The trust also engages with other organizations and governments throughout Africa to highlight the plight of pangolins, raising awareness of their conservation status and educating them as to the need for conserving pangolins, as well as implementing conservation actions. Many of their activities are not covered by research grants and they rely on sponsors and donations to continue their work. It is estimated that over a million pangolin have been lost in the last ten years, this is from a population that we have never counted, we have no idea how many remain, and we know it is not possible to breed these animals in captivity. We are losing these extraordinary animals so quickly to the illegal Asian market that they may disappear before we can truly appreciate them

Sashimi anyone?

Black bears enjoy a varied diet, but these omnivores greatly depend on protein rich salmon to build up reserves as they prepare to hibernate in winter.

#9 Finalist Frank Haluska

Great Egrets appear serene and still in wetlands, but they are also vicious hunters, who eat anything they can catch—including this bullfrog, who appears to be fighting hard for survival. Photographer Cory Richards: This moment is so bizarre and confusing that I had to zoom in to make sure another animal’s foot wasn’t sticking straight out of the water to block the distressed frog from certain death.

#10 Finalist Sandra Cattaneo Adorno

On a day when the sea was unusually rough and the undertow dangerously strong, bathers on Ipanema beach, in Rio de Janeiro, appear hesitant to take the plunge. Photographer Michaela Skovranova: A surreal scene—this image highlights an eclectic mix of light, human impact, and the power of the environment. It’s as if the heat of the Earth and the humans is radiating off the sand, creating their own micro climate.

#11 Maxime Israel Collier

Look at those eyes

#12 Nicholas Parker

Following one of the worst winter storms in Hawaii’s recent history, large swells wiped out the beaches of western Maui. The next day, large pieces of coral were scattered throughout the beach.. I picked through the most colorful and beautiful pieces and found this composition of the island of Moloka’i. The wave action reminds me of fingers from the sea coming to reclaim the coral back 

#13 Finalist Matt Potenski

Whale sharks have personalities. This one was bold and curious, approaching the boat anytime we came near. Whale sharks are huge, so large they resemble living reefs. No other terrestrial animal can match their size, power, and grace. Photographer Cristina Mittermeier: I have done a lot of swimming with whale sharks, and you never get to see an absolutely beautiful moment like this that exemplifies the abundance of healthy oceans.

#14 Devon Fox

Can you see the sea horse? This photo was taken in Page, AZ during our last road trip. Strange shapes start to appear in the layers carved into these slot canyons

#15 Sebastian Scheichl

Starting my pictures from the Faroes with a sheep, probably the first thing that comes to your mind when thinking about these islands

#16 Majed Sultan Alza’abi

Drinking time

#17 Nicholas Parker

The weather here lately is snow joke. Another day in single digits with howling wind

#18 Finalist Francisco J. Perez

A summer thunderstorm rolls over the Grand Canyon. This image is a combination of three consecutive long exposure photos of the storm. Photographer Charlie Hamilton James: This is an exceptional image of lightning striking the Grand Canyon. It is muddy, dramatic and demonstrates excellent technical ability.

#19 Jacintha Verdegaal

I still have a lot of Thailand photos to share, but this – spending the day with 4 rescued elephants – was definitely one of the highlights of 2019 so far

#20 Finalist Chris O’bryan

Galahs, a species of cockatoo, scour the parched Outback for water in Western Australia. Here, waterholes are the vital source of life. Photographer Wayne Lawrence: Of all of the images of wildlife, this one seems less clichéd and stood out because of the masterly use of color and composition.

#21 Juan Quinteros

One from the “sharks in the sandstorm” series

#22 Finalist Khatia Nikabadze

A pair of lambs stare out a car window at a livestock market in Marneuli, Georgia. Photographer David Guttenfelder: This photograph wasn’t made in the wild, yet the picture, in one moment, tells the seemingly bittersweet story of the young lambs.

#23 Finalist Sara Stein

This image depicts the frantic momentum of wildebeest crossing the Mara River in Tanzania. Photographer Tasneem Alsultan: I enjoy photos that aren’t that obvious. Is it wasps of hair? Or shards of wood? The mass of horns rushing my way seem lethal, and yet the photographer made us see the image from an artistic view.

#24 Andri Laukas

Always looking for new perspectives at these famous places

#25 Ulla Lohmann

Another one of my all time favorite images: Munganau walks home. The erupting Tavurvur volcano has destroyed beautiful Rabaul town. The people showed amazing resilience against the odds of nature and stayed with the hope, that their paradise will one day return. Fingers crossed that the volcano stays quiet! .

#26 Shivam

Madness is somewhere between chaos and having a dream.

#27 Caine Delacy

This is probably my most favorite shot

#28 Ken Geiger

it’s time for breakfast! Backlit by the early morning sun a southern yellow-billed hornbill snags a grasshopper for a snack.

#29 Arvind Patwal

“NAGA “. Believes that the twinkle in her eye may be the reflection off her lost marbles.

#30 Finalist Felice Simon

Families glide on an ice rink in Brooklyn, New York’s Prospect Park on an unseasonably warm January day. Photographer Maggie Steber: This photograph of skaters large and small somehow reminds me of a memory from childhood. The way the pristine light shoots across the ice creating long shadows feels symbolic of how we have to stay the challenging course of raising our children, always being there to catch them if they fall.

Meet This Teen With Downs Syndrome Who Has Already Signed For 5 Modeling Agencies And Has 50k Followers On Instagram

What began as a simple photo on social media, uploaded by mom Rubia, has turned into the beginning of a modeling career for 14-year-old Georgia Traebert from Curitiba, Brazil. “Well that happens all the time,” you might say. True, except Georgia isn’t your typical model. She has Down’s syndrome, and she’s proving that the condition needn’t stop people from achieving their dreams.

“It all started as a joke,” Rubia explained to The Sun. “I posted a picture of her on Facebook and it was a hit straight away. The idea was to see how much it can inspire other Down’s Syndrome children.”

“Today she is listed in five modeling agencies but what really worked was Instagram and Facebook. That’s where she became known worldwide.”

Georgia’s Instagram account now has over 50k followers, and she is becoming well-known in her native country. She has always been keen on modeling and fashion, and although she struggled as a child to fit in at school, enduring periods of loneliness and insecurity about herself, she has now gone on to singing on-stage and appearing in various advertisements. “Now jobs have started to appear,” Rubia said.

“She has just made a commercial for a famous brand here in Brazil and also modeled for one of the biggest jewelry designers in Brazil.”

But while Georgia’s blossoming career has done wonders for her self-confidence, her mother does worry sometimes about the negative people who appear online to cast doubt on her achievements. “The hardest part was when I read some people post comments that she is only successful because of her blonde hair and blue eyes – Georgia is a very kind child and very talented, otherwise she would not have come so far,” she said. “Today, as she stands out in the media, she is now surrounded by girls who ask her about her career and her work, so being in the media and having a career helped a lot with her confidence in that sense.”

“Her biggest dream is to be an actress or a singer, then a model. So, we are investing in drama and singing classes. Who knows? Maybe she will act next.”

“My advice is to never ever give up. Keep fighting and persist in your dreams, for nothing is impossible. Just want, believe and fight to make them real.”

Girl took cardboard cutout of Danny DeVito to prom and he had the best response

Danny DeVito’s cardboard cutout game is strong.

After a hardcore fan, Allison Closs, took a cardboard cutout of the actor as her escort to prom, DeVito responded in the best way — by making a cardboard cutout of the teen and bringing it to set with him.

Rob McElhenney, DeVito’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-star, shared photographic evidence of the cardboard cutout on Instagram, writing, “Hey Allison- I heard you took cardboard Danny to Prom. What a coincidence. He took cardboard Allison to Paddy’s…”

Closs also shared a photograph of her and cardboard Danny having a blast in a photobooth at prom, captioning the snapshots, “A night I’ll never forget.” Precious.

A night I’ll never forget 💙

A post shared by Allison Closs (@alicloss1) on

After realizing her prom date was recognized by the It’s Always Sunny cast, Closs tweeted she was “shooketh,” and explained it’s been a lifelong dream of hers to visit Paddy’s Pub.

In a YouTube video, Closs went on to share what inspired her to take the cardboard cutout as her date to prom.

“I was having trouble finding a prom date… I couldn’t find myself a date in real life or with an actual human,” she said, “So I bought one on Amazon.” 

The DeVito cutout reportedly cost Closs $100, she borrowed a tie from her brother’s closet, and invested in a square scooter, which she duct taped the cutout to and attached a leash for easy mobility.

“I have always loved Danny. I loved him on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I loved him in Hercules and Matilda. I just love him in every form he takes,” she said. “Danny was there for me when I really needed him. He treats me the way a woman should be treated.”

So stop stressing about finding the perfect human to take to prom, as you can see it looks like cardboard cutouts are the way to go.

Jenna Fischer from ‘The Office’ revealed what Pam whispered to Michael during their airport goodbye

Image: nbc

It’s been nearly five years since The Office ended, but Jenna Fischer is still answering questions about her role as Pam Beesly.

In an Instagram live video on Tuesday, Fischer answered one of the lingering questions fans still have to this day: What did Pam say to Michael in Season 7’s touching episode, “Goodbye, Michael?”

In Steve Carell’s farewell episode, Michael says goodbye to everyone in the office except Pam, who was busy running an errand. 

Pam was MIA because she thought Michael wasn’t leaving until the next day, but once Jim found out Michael was catching a flight to Colorado to live with his fiancé later that night he brought Pam to the airport to make sure the two got to part ways properly.

Pam and Michael meet up and exchange words, but no one could hear what was said because neither of them were wearing their mics (it was supposed to be a documentary, remember?).

https://giphy.com/embed/5QMNnhQhI7XBBS1yzS?html5=true

“That was me talking to Steve. I told him all the ways I was going to miss him when he left our show. Those were real tears and a real goodbye,” Fischer told her Instagram followers. “That was a really emotional scene.”

BRB, crying all over again. If you want to re-experience the touching moment with this new knowledge you can watch the entire scene below, but you might want to have some tissues handy.

Fischer was also asked to reveal her favorite episode, a question to which she had a very thorough answer.

“I just watched ‘Branch Wars’ from Season 4 and I was kind of loving it,” she said. “But my ultimate favorite is ‘Dinner Party.'”

How great is it to know that the entire cast is just as obsessed with that episode as fans are?

Fisher went on to give the “Health Care” episode in Season 1 a shoutout, along with the episodes after Pam gave birth. The actress revealed she loves when Pam nurses the wrong baby in “The Delivery,” sharing that her IRL husband was in the episode.

Long live the Dunder Mifflin fam.

Squiggle lips are a thing now … kind of

Want your mouth to look like the Nickelodeon logo?

Amazing. Pick up your favorite tube of lipstick, fire up your FaceTune app, and let’s get to work on your squiggle lips.

Squiggle lips arrive fresh on the heels of squiggle brows, the not-really-a-trend-but-definitely-a-thing look that confused the internet earlier this week. 

And while many photos of squiggle lips are intended as, well, a big joke (the most prominent one circulating is clearly a FaceTune job), that hasn’t stopped the internet from weighing in.

Friends … would you try the wavy lip thing? Vote now.

See you next week for squiggle blush.
