    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.

    Harsh. Interestingly, the very things she decries, are the very things our nostalgic eyes see as the personality of the show.

    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.

    So sad. So young. The dangers of smoking.

    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)

    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.

    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.

    I always think of AMC and the Crystal Ball still this time of year.
     
    Ms. Lucci sure is getting mileage from this role in Joy. Very happy for her. And that green looks fabulous on her.
     
    I am not surprised Agnes Nixon is into that type of thing.

    IMHO, it's fairly generic. The metaphors are a little too on-the-nose. Gosh, darn, it sure is pretty though.
    My favorite parts are the epitaphs and the "spiky ice fingers." I do truly like the Idea of the song.
