The Tonys are tonight on CBS and it almost seems kind of wrong for them to go on after the horrendous Pulse Shooting. But the show must go on and they are dedicating it to the 50 innocent lives that were taken away from us unnecessarily.
It will have a somber feel, but we can’t let the shooters win. They can try to break us, but we won’t let them.
Today we are all LGBTQ! Put your hate aside because look at what it caused.
Idris Elba won not one but two SAG Awards yesterday for Luther and Beasts of No Nation. While he was drunk with excitement, his statuettes were just drunks. That is because he used them as drink holders and looks like they were doing more than just holding the drinks! Why not, it is not every year that someone wins 2 SAG Awards for individual achievement in acting.
Once again Neil Patrick Harris showed all the other hosts how to open an awards show with the opening number he had tonight for The Tony Awards! No one does it better than him and that fact that he kept that momentum up for 7 minutes is absolutely incredible. Way to go NPH!
Plus he had every show that is playing/ed on the Great White Way this past year be part of it.
And my favorite part was when his dissed the Les Miz movie because it’s true. Gotta love Broadway where the actors sing live 8 days a week and they don’t need a closeup to prove it.
UPDATE: The show was more than just the opening number, here is Andrew Rannells, Megan Hilty and Laura Benanti singing about their cancelled shows. Remember The New Normal, Smash, Go On and The Playboy Club? I do and I miss them too.
And here is a cute moment between NPH and Annie’s Sandy!
Finally this is how the Tonys ended with NPH and Audra McDonald wrapping up the wonderful show to the music of Alicia Keys Empire State of Mind.
At this year’s Emmy Awards everyone in the cast of Modern Family over 21 got an Emmy nomination except Ed O’Neill and he was also ignored by the Golden Razzies, I mean Golden Globes too. Well now he is finally getting nominated for an award and it is by his peers, Al Bundy received a SAG Award nomination. About freaking time!
But he is not the only awesome nomination that was announced by SAG this morning, Hot in Cleveland got two nominations. One for Best Ensemble and one for Betty White. Hats off to TV Land for getting two nominations for their first ever scripted show. What other network can say that? And the noms are well deserved!
When it comes to the rest of the nominations you can check them out on the SAG Awards’ site. I am just not feeling this Awards season, so that is why I am not listing them all.
If you are like me and find all these Awards shows extremely boring, here are the best speeches from last night’s SAG Awards!
If it weren’t for the fact they were honoring Betty White, I would not have DVRed the SAG Awards, but as they said who doesn’t love Betty White! And what an introduction Sandra Bullock gave to Betty as she received the much deserved Life Achievement Award and what an acceptance speech Ms Betty White gave when she got the naked little man statuette! I especially loved the clip reel because I never saw Betty’s early work before so it was such a joy to see she is really a brunette. Who knew she wasn’t a natural blonde? I also love that the Golden Girl is 88 years young and she still has all of her wit…her dirty little wit!!! Now when it comes to Sandra accepting her award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for a Motion Picture, how much did you adore her speech where she praises her husband! I so want a marriage like theirs because you can tell that they really love each other, afterall he is wearing a monkey suit for her. Next time she forces him to dress up is the Oscars!!!
Next up is Drew Barrymore, who is finally winning awards for her acting! I love her speeches and I admire that she tries to do them off the cuff. Next up for her is the Emmys, hopefully by then she will have this award accepting thing down!
Finally it is time for the Inglourious Basterds and we have Christoph Waltz who is just so humbled by all of his awards for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture and if anyone deserves the award for best actor this year it is him. Plus his speeches are so original and sincere, how can you not love him. Lastly we have Eli Roth accepting Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture for the cast and he is the only actor who actually named all of the cast that was up there on the stage with him when they won that honor and I respect him for that. Next up fro Christoph is the Oscars!
