There’s no question Drake was the man of the night on Sunday during the 2016 American Music Awards. Let us break it down for you.
The rapper walked into the annual awards show with a record-breaking 13 nominations and walked away with four major awards. We’d call that … WINNING.
Drizzy, who hadn’t won an AMA prior to Sunday’s festivities, picked up the awards for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album, Rap/Hip-Hop Song, Soul/R&B Song and Rap/Hip-Hop Artist.
The “Jumpman” rapper, clad in a black suit minus a tie, humbly accepted all four awards and even received one trophy from his friend, Canadian and Degrassi co-star, Nina Dobrev. “Me and Nina were on Degrassi together by the way. We’ve come a long way, you know? Congratulations on all your success,” he said after she presented the award.

During another speech, the 30-year-old, who was accompanied by his father, told the crowd, “For our genre, I just like to keep things excited and keep making music. Shout out to everybody that’s trying to do the same thing.”
Aside from having to deliver four acceptance speeches, Drake was the man behind one of the funniest Apple commercials now circulating the Web.
The visual, which debuted during the airing of the AMAs, shows a sweaty Drizzy pumping iron to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” before getting overwhelmed and falling with weights in hand.
The video is a followup to Swift’s Apple commercial from earlier this year. You might recall, Swift running to Drake’s “Jumpman” on a treadmill before tripping and falling flat on her face. Basically, the best commercial of the year.
“Yes,” Swift tweeted in response to the Canadian rapper’s video.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
