65th Annual Emmy Nominations... [Jul. 10th, 2014|06:53 am]
[Tags|, ]

You take the good (a " Game of Thrones" cast member besides Dinklage being recognized), you take the bad (the switch to Comedy from the Drama category killing "Shameless" actors Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White and Noel Fisher chances of a nod) and there you have the 2014 Emmy nominations.

The Upfronts: Who Lived To Tell Another Tale... [Jun. 1st, 2014|05:27 pm]

The networks had their version of the pick a few weeks ago; a time when they picked up shows but ruthlessly killed some of my favorites. It was the Red Wedding all over again!

Soon after the nets had their upfronts in New York as the barely cold bodies were leapt over in order to show everyone the new shows that the networks will be killing in 2015.

The Anti-Nerd Prom.... [May. 6th, 2014|02:36 am]
Last night was the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art's gala benefiting the Costume Institute. This year’s theme was the the work of Charles James.

I loved a lot of the looks that came out of this year’s ball. Last year’s theme “PUNK: Chaos to Couture” didn’t inspire the best fashion. I think too many people just didn’t know how to create a glamorous rock look so it didn’t even seem like a lot tried. I think this year people got into the spirit of James’ work. There were a lot of great, bold looks.

The ones who got the short end of the stick were the men. The rumors from last year that Anna Wintour was going to make men adhere more to the gala’s fashion standards turned out to be mostly true. The edict was that men had to wear white tie, black tailcoats or waistcoats, but some men ventured outside those perimeters. And hardly any wore the top hats that were also suggested.

The FashionsCollapse )

Nerd Prom 2014..What I'm Listening To... [May. 4th, 2014|07:49 am]
[Tags|, ]

The White House Correspondents Dinner aka Nerd Prom was last night. The event was hosted by Joel McHale. I didn’t watch any of the feeds or any vids from his opening or the skits but I was all about the fashion.

The Government Bugged Their Outfits I Know ItCollapse )

What I’m Listening To

I’m on a bit of a Lana Del Rey kick. Almost every Lana Del Rey song sounds as if it’s coming from the tough girlfriend of a 50’s greaser. Languid, but with a touch toughness.

American: Lana Del Rey
West Coast (Remix ft. Chanel): Lana Del Rey
West Coast: Lana Del Rey
Bennie and the Jets (Elton John cover): Miguel
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Elton John cover): Hunter Hayes

Dueling Tunes:

Barry Manilow vs. Meatloaf. “Read ‘Em and Weep” was written by Meatloaf’s longtime collaborator Jim Steinman. Meatloaf’s version brings his usual theatrical bellowing while Barry’s is more soaring…and just as theatrical.

~George Clooney realized he would need someone to remind him to take his medicine so he got (allegedly) engaged to his girlfriend of six-months international lawyer 36-year old Amal Alamuddin. This is Clooney’s second marriage…well it will be if he makes it down the aisle. I’m taking bets on if it’ll happen or not. If she’s expecting a little Clooney then all bets are off.

~The (presumed) final episode of Lindsay Lohan’s docu-series on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network aired last week. I never watched an ep…not for lack of trying, but it was so boring. I will say one thing: she is good at acting---like she cares about her career. She doesn’t, not really. I think she puts on a front because she wants people to believe she has it together and she’s floundering. I don’t think she’s still using drugs.

In the finale Lohan revealed that she had a miscarriage towards the beginning of taping. That wasn’t the most surprising thing to me that came out of her press for the series. It’s her confirmation of her list of lovers that shocked me.

Over a month ago a list was circulated that was allegedly written by Lohan, but since there wasn’t anything to connect it to her its legitimacy was questioned. On Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” she told host Andy Cohen that it was her list and she did it as part of her Twelve Steps.

Who Did She Ride Like Herbie the Love Bug?Collapse )

~It’s hard out here for DC Comics fans. Sunday evening the Wall Street Journal posted an article confirming that Zack Snyder will be directing the Justice League movie. The plan is to have it shoot back to back with the Superman vs. Batman film.

I don’t know who Snyder blew or who he saw blowing someone else but I don’t know why DC would give him JLA film. I would’ve even taken Ben Affleck who was rumored to be a candidate for directing the film—a condition of him being cast as Batman. Snyder’s films always look the same and the JLA deserves to be unique.

The actors already cast in Superman/Batman and who will be in the JLA film are Cavill, Affleck, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Ray Fischer as Cyborg. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has confirmed that he has been in talks with WB about a role in one of their comic book films.

*A few weeks ago someone who worked on the failed JLA film posted set pictures of the cast.

~There’s been a bit of cold weather in Los Angeles and now I know why: hell has frozen over. That hot guy from “Smallville”—not Ari Cohen (I understand the confusion)-- the other hot guy from “Smallville” Tom Welling is doing publicity!

Tom is flashing his fang-less smile all over promoting his supporting role in the upcoming Kevin Coster film “Draft Day”.

Press is Still His KryptoniteCollapse )

~This week has been CinemaCon in Las Vegas where theater exhibators take in the wares from Hollywood. Everything that has come out of CinemaCon has been fawning so it’s impossible to tell what is actually good especially since any film can have a cool trailer which bears no relation to the quality of the film ::thinks back to the “Watchman” trailer::

One of the trailers shown and released online at the same time (no videotaking is allowed so reporters have to just write about what they viewed. Who does that anymore?!) was the reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” starring Megan Fox and William Fichtner with Alan Ritchson portraying Leonardo.

Season Three of “Teen Wolf” ends next week with Season Four going into production in the summer. S4 will bring a return to the 12 episode structure that was deviated from this season (22 episodes split up).

Last night’s episode answered the question of who would be the “Teen Wolf” death this season. Fan speculation ran rampant in the weeks following Jeff Davis’ announcement. We now know who it is, but one cast member knew who it wouldn’t be.

Flight MH370... [Mar. 14th, 2014|11:24 pm]
Watching the livestream of the press conference http://abcnews.go.com/Live/

The official word coming out of Malaysia is that the plane was hijacked but if that was the case wouldn't some group come forward by now with demands? I'm unsure if this is the reasoning they will actually use in the presser but that's the position they were taking ahead of it.

I think they're saying likely hijacked because that's an answer/theory better than "we have no clue".

I'm optimistic enough to believe that it could be possible but it's so unlikely.

The families need closure. This is just nightmarish.

What I've Seen...TV Talk.... [Mar. 13th, 2014|03:22 am]
[Tags|, , , ]

Early renewals are rolling out. The CW has already announced some of their renewals (I’m saying some because I’m holding out hope for pickups of “Hart of Dixie” and “The Tomorrow People”) now FOX has announced the renewals of “The New Girl”, “The Mindy Project”, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and happily “The Following” will return next season with heinous acts of violence that while grisly aren’t as disgusting and nightmarish as the murders on “Hannibal”. I still watch it but with a churning stomach.

Meanwhile “Raising Hope” has been cancelled after four seasons.

I’m hoping that “Almost Human” doesn’t suffer the same fate. The show is on the bubble. If it’s canned it would be the third Michael Ealy show that didn’t make it two seasons: “Flash Forward” and “Common Law” being the others.

Better TV Boyfriend for Michael Ealy?Collapse )

*As “The Tomorrow People” and “Hart of Dixie” await their fates (join TTP on their move to Monday nights beginning next week!!), other CW shows are casting up and shooting. The “Supernatural” spinoff originally titled “Supernatural: Tribes” is now dubbed “Supernatural: Bloodlines” because that makes it better and has added the final character, a female one!

Melissa Roxburgh has been cast as Violet a member of the werewolf pack who is forced to hide her true form because of her forbidden love for family rival David (Nathaniel Buzolic)

“The Flash” is filming their pilot and set pics have popped up.

Will Its Cancellation Be Speedy?Collapse )

*Dear heart Tom Hardy is doing many things, though we just haven’t actually seen those things just yet. Tom several films coming out: the long gestating “Mad Max” reboot, “Locke” (starring Andrew Scott and Ruth Wilson’
