The Do Something 2013 Awards

Published

Why don’t you do something? The 2013 Do Something Awards took place on July 31 in Hollywood, Ca. hosted by Sophia Bush and Jason Dundas.

The event is aimed at showcasing celebrities and young activist that have a positive impact on the world, shaping it into a positive place. It is the one of the few awards show honoring charitable work in Hollywood instead of patting celebs on the back for recording a hit album or a successful role in a movie. Even Jennifer Hudson mentioned that Osbourne was there to address important matters instead of critique who was best dressed of the night. Clothing and style had no importance for the stars that were radiating positive energy. The energy that impacts the world towards goodness.

Honoree Jennifer Hudson held back tears while being honored her Do Something award for being co-founder of the Julian D. King foundation. The foundation is named after her nephew that was brutally murdered in Chicago and provides much-needed school supplies to school children from low income families.

“I wasn’t going to cry, but I’m a cry baby so I can’t help it,”she said in her acceptance speech. “It just shows how much it warms my heart to see so many blessed and from our blessings in honor of my nephew…It’s one thing to be a celebrity, but it means nothing if you can’t help somebody. ”

Other celebs honored for their charitable work included Patrick Dempsey, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, LL Cool J, and Kelly Osbourne.

“These days celebrity is almost synonymous with spoiled rich brat. A couple more tantrums in front of paparazzi and we’ll be there 100 percent so it’s nice to be recognized as a human being trying to put some positivity out there in the world, as a guy who hasn’t forgotten where he came from and as part of a group of us not living up to the brat title.” explained LL Cool J. LL recieved an award for his work with summer camp Jump & Ball as wll as his work with Chrysalis, an organization that helps homeless people gain employment.
Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson was recognized for his “labor of love” Tie The Knot, the marriage equality advocate group he founded with his husband Justin Mikita last year. “I am obviously honored every time [our show] gets any sort of recognition, but this is definitely more special to me personally. It doesn’t feel like work. It feels like something that I have to do, something so integral to who [I am]. To get an award for something that is in your veins is really moving. We are very lucky as actors to have the platform that we have to be able to bring attention to so many worthy causes.”

The host, Sophia Bush changed four times and stayed happy and radiating all night, despite a choke up when acknowledging friend Cory Monteith’s tragic death, earlier this month.

 

“I don’t know how to phrase it because you don’t want to say you’re expecting that from anyone, but sadly I think there are some people who we watch as they sort of unravel, and if something like that were to happen, you’d be sad but not necessarily shocked,” Bush said. “You’d just be so sad that they never got help.”

Bush mentioned that the tragedy was in the fact that Monteith actually reached out and received help for the substance abuse. “It’s, I think, more emotional for the people who knew and loved him because he was working toward that,” she said. “He had just gone to get help.”

But it wasn’t until Daniel Maree, for Million Hoodies Movement for Justice, an organization he created to amend the “stand your ground” law in Florida following the Trayvon Martine case.

To lighten up the mood, Sara Bareilles and Fitz and The Tantrums performed.

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7

Chicago Med Lemons and Lemonade

Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!

Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season. 

Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.

DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX. 

DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly. 

She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.

It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.

Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.

I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”

Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.

Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew. 

The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.

All three Chicago shows were renewed for three additional seasons back in 2020 — Chicago Fire through season 11, Chicago PD through season 10, and Chicago Med through season 8.

The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school. 

We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
