-- Toronto, Ontario, May 18, 2011 – In response to online rumours and Team Harpo’s refusal to comment on guest appearances for The Oprah Winfrey Show’s finale airing May 25th, the only Canadian featured in The New York Times article, “Who Will Be Oprah’s Last Star?” launches a grassroots campaign to win the honour. Emmanuel Lopez, a.k.a. Motivatorman, a Toronto based motivational speaker and blogger who uses movies as a personal and professional development tool, is optimistic that social media will help make his dream a reality.
Today Oprah fans reacted to speculation that Will and Jada Smith will be the last guests on her show, “Will’s kind of funny, but… big deal! I have been getting all excited to watch the last show… expecting something really meaningful… something to make me laugh… and cry… something I would always remember!” says jkgrip in their thread on the Oprah message boards.
Emmanuel Lopez believes his story is what Oprah’s fans crave. Through a mid-life crisis, career transition, unexpected family death, depression, bankruptcy and near homelessness, Lopez finds solutions and inspiration in movies like Will Smith’s “The Pursuit of Happyness”. He says writing his Movies that Motivate blog saved his life because of its interactivity. Readers from all over the world express gratitude for Motivatorman’
s empowering movie tips while simultaneously providing him with emotional and social support.
Lopez wishes to inspire people to follow their passion, and show them how movies can be an invaluable resource to help them overcome life and career challenges and accomplish their goals. Although The New York Times November 2010 article, “Who Will Be Oprah’s Last Star?” focuses more on the other interviewees, Lopez believes he still has a good chance to share the stage with Oprah via the power of social media. “Anything can happen,” says Lopez. “Some of the greatest movies are about the underdog, like “Rocky Balboa,” because people, especially Oprah, can relate.”
