Was Louie Anderson the best dressed at the Emmys?
September 18th, 2018 under Emmys. [ Comments: none ]


Every awards show has a fashion theme and yesterday’s was all about the pants suits. Something, call me old, I was not wowed by.

What I was wowed by is Louie Anderson’s rubber chicken tie. He told KABC’s George Pennacchio that a fan made it for him over 30 years ago. It holds up just like his jokes.

Forget Mandy Moore’s low-cut Rodarte or Leslie Jones’s Christian Siriano iridescent pants suit or Tiffany Haddish’s flowing dress that paid homage to the Eritrean flag. To me, it was all about one tie!

What were Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons doing behind Alex Bornstein?
September 18th, 2018 under Emmys, Kirsten Dunst. [ Comments: none ]


While everyone was focused on Emmy winner Alex Bornstein taking off her top as she went up to accept her award, there was something else going on behind her. Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons were out of their seats, kneeled down on the floor.

What were they couple doing? Embarrassingly looking for their seats. Where is an usher when you need one? Oh, he is not EGOT material just yet, so that is why he was not there.

What if newly engaged Glenn Weiss did not win the Emmy?
September 17th, 2018 under Emmys, Marriage Proposals. [ Comments: none ]


The biggest moment at this year’s Emmys is when Director Glenn Weiss won the Emmy and won our hearts by clinching his girlfriend’s heart. He did that by telling Jan Svendsen why he hated to call her his girlfriend. He would rather call her his wife.

At that point, everyone knew exactly what he meant. He was proposing to the love of his life. With some coaching from the audience, she went up onto the stage and he got down on one knee. Thankfully, she said yes.

But what would have happened if he did not win? He told the press backstage, he would have asked her at their go-to post-awards shows spot In-n-Out. Good thing he won!

Why do they have an after awards spot? The two met in 2001 and worked together for 10 years. According to Variety both of them worked on the Tonys and as we know he also works on the Oscars.

Did she have any idea that he was going to propose to her on national television? Nope, the only person who knew was his dad. The person whom he got the ring from whether his siblings like it or not.

Congrats to the betrothed couple who better get married during an awards shows!

Happy Days at the Emmys
September 17th, 2018 under Emmys, Henry Winkler. [ Comments: none ]


Forget the whitest song and dance number since Rob Lowe opened the Oscars. Or the flattest monologue since Kevin Spacey hosted the Tonys. The Emmys did not begin until Henry Winkler won Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for HBO’s Barry.

The nicest guy in Hollywood finally won his first Primetime Emmy since he was nominated back in 1976 for playing Arthur Fonzarelli on Happy Days. Talking about that show, The Fonz and Richie Cunnigham aka Ron Howard were reunited before the show started. I am happy the Oscar winner got to see his friend bring home the statuette. Who doesn’t love that the two Arrested Development stars are still close friends after all of these years. Oh, I get it now.

EGOT got three new members!
September 10th, 2018 under Emmys, John Legend, Oscars. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday, EGOT’s membership jumped 25% with the addition of three new members. Lyricist Tim Rice, mega Broadway producer Andrew Lloyd Webber and John Legend got the final key to the door when they won the Outstanding Variety Special (Live) Emmy for producing Jesus Christ Superstar.

What is an EGOT? It is when a person wins the Emmy, the Grammy, the Oscar and the Tony award. Before last night only 12 people held that honor since 1962. Legend is the youngest person to join, did it in the second least amount of time (Robert Lopez did it in 10 years while Legend did it 12) and the first African-American man (Whoopi Goldberg was the first African-American member) to get it.

If you are like me, then you are wondering what Webber and Legend did to get the fourth honor. Webber has an Oscar for You Must Love Me from Evita and Legend won the Tony for producing the revival of Jitney.

What about Tim Rice? He said, “Thanks to all for messages re EGOT thingy. Also delighted for @OfficialALW and brilliant @johnlegend . Had to break news to John that we did not have him in mind when we wrote it in 1969-70. Also thanks to all the NBC JCS team esp. @neilmeron and late @craigzadan.”

Who do you think will be the next member of the exclusive group? My money is on Liza Minelli or Lin-Manuel Miranda.
