SAG AWARD HIGHLIGHTS



Loved the back of Marg Helgenberg's dress. Doesn't hurt for you husband to be the SAG president eh? :)
Debbie Matenopolis or however you spell her name is such an idiot, no wonder she got fired from "The View". How can you ask Ricky Gervais how he feels about Steve Carell being more famous than he is? Idiot.

Josh Brolin is just a jackass. Diane Lane should be smiling like she is in love as if she didn't just call the cops on him for assault some time ago.

Forest Whitaker is so well spoken and articulate. I love hearing him speak, so soothing. His wife is gawg.


Was I the only one who saw a bump on Eva Longoria Parker. Speaking of bumps, Angelina is so preggers.

Poor Nikki Blonsky and thats all i have to say.

Hurray for Chandra Wilson, hope she achieved her dream of being a Dreamette after the awards, just kidding her hair was an upgrade, dress still needed work.

Cate Blanchett is pretty, her dress - not so much.


Casey Affleck is a horrible person to interview, why show up if you don't want to be there..hisss.


Old age is the best way to campaign for an award. Think i am lying, ask Ruby Dee. Her role in American Gangster was not that spectacular. Ah well her glasses were snazzy.

Julie Christie is actually hot for her age, too bad her movie was a snooze.

Ryan Gosling is hot and yummy

Daniel Day Lewis is hot sha.Absolute best speech of the night.RIP Heath

When Heath was shown last in the "In Memoriam" section, i closed my eyes and took a deep breath. so sad.

Why did Jane Krakowski think her grapes on-a-chest would be a fashion statement?


feel free to share yours :)

RIP Heath Ledger


So in the past week and a half there were like 4 celeb deaths but the most high profile of them was Heath Ledger's. I'm sitting through another painful day at work, and my friend Queen Bee sends me an email : "Heath Ledger.Dead.Cnn" and I'm like no!. I go to cnn and lo and behold in the big red breaking news box it was confirmed, unlike many who thot of the fate of Batman first, my first thought was "he was so young and he has a little kid". Anyways, there were others who felt the way I did ie numb and finding it surreal and there were others who wondered what the biggie was "afterall you never knew him". Well I think Sharon Maguire, director of the upcoming Incidiery(which stars Heath's ex-love, Michelle Williams) sums it up best:


"When celebrities die in heartbreaking circumstances, people who don't care for Hollywood say things like, "Who cares, we lose people every day and nobody makes a fuss about them." 'Tis true. But we don't know everybody — or at least it’s impossible to feel like we do in the same vein that a spectacular performance makes us feel connected to an actor".



The day i heard that Heath had died, I was discussing with a co-worker of mine and another co-worker chirped in saying "Well that's what he gets for doing a sinful movie, hahaha, just kidding". Apparently for him to have that thought, he was not kidding. I know I live in TX, bible belt and all but personally I identify as Christian, I do believe homosexuality is a sin but ultimately that God's call to judge not mine or anybodys. I watched BrokeBack Mountain twice in the theaters, it was a very well done movie and need I remind people - IT WAS A MOVIE!. I heard people wanted to picket his funeral, I don't hear about people wanting to picket dead actors who portrayed pre-marital sex or murder in their movies. Anyways,condolences to his family and may his soul rest in peace.



Other RIP's :
Suzanne Pleshette
Brad Renfro
Christian Brando

Best and Worst of 2007

So IMO 2007 was a good year for movies, I watched a lot of them (shout out to ya! :), granted the best movies were indie movies but twas a good year nonetheless..so then why did someone ask me what my favorite movie of the year was and i swear i was stumped. I just blanked out and couldnt think of any movie. I won't lie even though there were good movies, I was not WOWED by any movie. Anyways the only movie that came to mind was "The Namesake", a story about an Indian immigrant raising his kids in America. It came out earlier in the year, but I enjoyed it, its based on a book which i haven't read, but my best friend claims the movie is better than the book (that's rare). So since that's what came to my head it is officially my fave movie of the year :D...The lady who asked me thinks if i had seen "No Country for Old Men" then that'd be my fav..ah well we'll see...


On to the worst, yes i don't watch a lot of bad movies because i know what i can stand or not (Chuck and Larry? tufia!). Sha Sha my worst movie was "Shoot 'em up"..yeah yeah yeah it's a parody, it still sucked! geez and it had Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti, i just assume they needed mortgage money..i watched this on dvd but Nanny Diaries was pretty bad too and i love Sca Jo :(

so those are my picks..you got any?

Stupid Writer's strike

So i came in here all ready to blog about a topic i have carried in my head for a while now, but i just remembered that tomorrow is supposed to be the Golden Globes' awards (one of my faves) and it has been cancelled due to this writers strike that looks like its not gonna get resolved anytime soon.

I mean, I am all for the writers getting paid and all but why should everyone else suffer for it? Poor crew members are probably headed to the unemployment line. Again aside from my viewing pleasure, i feel no pity for the Katherine Heigl's (uggh), i really feel for the Ellen Paiges (juno) and Nikki Blonskys (hairspray)..i mean these kids had their breakthrough year, when else are they going to enjoy their accolades?, i hate that they are being robbed of this, imagine if this happened during the time of Jennifer Hudson's wave, i firmly believe she wouldn't have the same number of acting projects that she nabbed after her award sweeping last year..ah well, my crazy self will still tune in to hear the HFPA "press conference" listing the winners.

I wonder why they just can't postpone it..aargh i wouldn't have minded much if these were the oscars sef..mmmschhewww.
