    Hollywood landscape,ride zeitgeist into obscurity,fave

    Would U kindly help me out with these red highlights ? thanks in advance !

    Fame sure is fickle. One day you're posing for the cover of Vanity Fair, and the next you're auditioning for an Olsen twins movie. The Hollywood landscape is littered with would-be superstars who rode the zeitgeist straight into obscurity. With that in mind, it wasn't easy choosing our list of today's biggest stars. Candidates needed a shelf-life more like a Twinkie than a carton of milk, and had to have name recognition with both grade-schoolers and grandmas. Some of our faves failed to make the cut (sorry Denzel, Cameron, and Reese-there's always next year). So, without further adieu, because Lord knows their careers aren't getting any fresher, here are our picks for the Top 10 Celebrities in America

    Welcome Zeppy
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    The landscape is littered with is a figurative expression meaning that they are all over the place. The word fave is short for favorite. As for the other one, it has something to do with what goes up must come down, I suppose. Fame is fleeting and all that.

    :wink:

    Zeitgeist means 'spirit of the time'. People who often seem enormously important and relevant at one time may be quickly forgotten by history. If you look back over the list of Oscar winners, many are still famous, but others have disappeared completely.
