The Blaze reported: “Yeoh won the Oscar for her lead role in the popular film “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” making history as the first Asian woman to win the Academy Award for best actress. And in her acceptance speech, Yeoh wanted everyone to know that her age clearly did not hold her back from an exceptional performance. For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities. This is proof that dreams do come true,” Yeoh said in a speech after accepting the award.”And ladies, don’t let anybody tell you you’re ever past your prime,” she added. “Never give up.“
CNN morning co-host Don Lemon’s future at the network appears to be in question if a report published on Wednesday is accurate. According to sources who spoke to RadarOnline, Lemon’s co-hosts, Kaitlin Collins and Poppy Harlow appear to have had just about enough of him. Insiders spoke to the outlet about fallout from Lemon’s embarrassing gaffe last month when he claimed that GOP presidential contender Nikki Haley should be careful trying to make age an issue this campaign — Joe Biden is 80 and Donald Trump is 76 — because she’s “past her prime” at the ripe old age of 51.
Lemon’s remarks about Haley pertained to her endorsement of “mandatory mental competency tests” for politicians aged 75 years or more, and he suggested that she was no longer in her “prime.” He cited “Google” as evidence that Haley would have a tough time winning the presidency because women are only considered to be at their best in their “20s, 30s, and 40s.”
“I’m just saying what the facts are. Google it. Everybody at home, when is a woman in her prime, it says 20s, 30s, and 40s,” he said during a discussion on the topic last month with Harlow and Collins. “And I’m just saying Nikki Haley should be careful about saying that politicians are not in their prime, and they need to be in their prime when they serve. Because she wouldn’t be in her prime according to Google or whatever it is.”
