  1. I get ME-TV as part of my traditional antenna system. It's one of the NBC affiliate channels.
  2. First of all, her hair was SO eighties!! It was interesting to hear the rumor about how Newhart would end, given the actual finale is in the annals as one of the more interesting series finales of all time. I was in high school at this time, so not following Friday night television. IF they didn't know it was ending, did the finale feel like a finale?
  3. Toups, I believe your predictions are right on the money. The campaign against Casey Affleck's personal behavior seems to be succeeding, so I think it is neck and neck. The only upset I can see from what you list might be Dev Patel for Best Supporting Actress. His heyday has long past, but I still do not underestimate Harvey Weinstein's ability to campaign for Oscar.
  4. From the streets?? Of Where??? ...Paramus??? I put this on the mother. You can tell by the way she acts. Showing up in her fur coat....yeesh... This was a play to get on national television so she and her daughter can get a reality show and sell "Cash me Ousside" T-shirts.
  5. With the PGA this Saturday, La La Land has basically solidified its lead. Since it is not nominated for Ensemble at SAG, I'm going with Fences for the win. I like La La Land, just wasn't thrilled with it.
  7. I'm not familiar with "Spoonful," but I agree that this was a wonderful interview. He was very well-versed and clearly a fan, but he wasn't overly pandering. As always, La Lucci was gracious and taken aback. Learning about her grandson was touching and brought out a very real side.
  8. Harsh. Interestingly, the very things she decries, are the very things our nostalgic eyes see as the personality of the show.
  9. Funny. I was "with Shonda" when she was "with Obama" 8 years ago. I had a chance to meet and speak with both Shonda and Kate Walsh when they stopped by the campaign office. Perhaps, she felt, as I did, that we needed to go with Obama's momentum, and Hillary could have 2016, giving the Democrats reign for a time to come. However, I don't think anyone could have predicted the complete implosion of the Republican party. I remember just before 2008 thinking the Democrats never could "get it together." I still think the Dems do not have as strong a position as the Republicans; it's just that the Republicans have tipped into crazy-land.
  10. So sad. So young. The dangers of smoking.
  11. Again, just so damn unpredictable. What a fun year! I think I'm going with The Revenant. Both I think it will win and my own personal vote of the nominees for BP. Of course I've yet to see Max, Room and Brooklyn. (still have a shot of seeing the first two)
  12. I would throw Kim Delaney into the "bigger star" mix. She had NYPD Blue, Army Wives and numerous guest spots. I suppose one could throw Melissa Leo in there. She actually has an Oscar to her name. I wasn't watching when either of them were on; I was younger, but I've seen old eps. Ripa has charisma in spades, though. It didn't surprise me she made it big. She knows her lane; she stays in it, and has a lot to show for it.
  13. STOP! You don't love Michael? No I dont, but thats not the point of this thread. Back in 2003 when he was on AMC, I never found anything impressive about him and didnt think he would go on to be some huge star by 2015 Co-sign (runs away)
  14. This is actually turning out to be a fun year. I have no idea where this is going now. Usually we all know by now, and have known for some time.
