    Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    I’m sure everyone saw that Carole Radziwill’s former mother-in-law passed.
  2. I loved @Edward Skylover‘s US soap scene thread, as it exposed me to some great stuff I hadn’t seen before. Are there any essential scenes from non-American soaps on YouTube we should see? The foreign soap I followed the longest was Hollyoaks. Eventually it got so grim and exploitative that I couldn’t stomach watching (ironic, considering my very first episode featured a bunch of body bags stacked atop each other after a pub fire that killed half the cast). But, like many British soaps, it has done stylized death scenes very well, and few better than Sarah Barnes’s demise after her parachute is sabotaged on a skydiving trip. It’s absolutely chilling and terrifying with the music as she plummets to the ground with a cruel thud.

    Best UK/Non-US Soap Scenes

    I never really watched Neighbours. The only Aussie soap I’ve ever really watched is Home and Away, and that was only a few episodes for work. It was fun to see a pre-Wolf of Wall Street Margot Robbie in the Neighbours clip.

    These wild misses from Kei... SMH.

    Empire: Discussion Thread

    One thing that I’m only seeing a little talk about: there are federal criminal ramifications if the powder in the envelope sent to Jussie on the Empire set was staged.
  6. According to Eric Braeden’s IG, Doug Davidson is returning to the show in some capacity.

    Monfils just beat Medvedev. Both guys looked a bit weary, and I thought Gael might choke it away.

    Y&R February 2019 Discussion Thread

    That’s cool. I’ll look forward to that. I suppose it’ll be Nikki reminiscing from her jail cell.

    Film Awards Thread

    Exactly. They are pissing off the only audience they’re going to have. And it’s still a pretty big audience at the moment. The Oscars are second to the Super Bowl in ratings each year. Granted, that audience will die off in the coming years if they don’t do a better job of selling it to young people. I can understand the anxiety. It’ll be sad if the Oscars become obsolete, though. They still matter a lot internationally. When I was in Singapore in 2017, I met a lot of people who’d seen Moonlight who’d never seen a black gay film. They watched it because of the Oscars’ seal of approval. It gives smaller, more artistic films a huge platform. (And I wasn’t even that crazy about Moonlight.)

    Yeah, I remember Babe being acclaimed as well. I’m not sure Babe has this great legacy as a family film in the same way the more fashionable Pixar movies have had, so it’s a bit of a retcon. Some say Malek is being rewarded for surviving the Bryan Singer stuff, and since their on-set feud was so widely publicized (and notable since Malek is so well-known as the sweetest guy), he emerges looking pretty good. Plus, they love an actor transformation, and I’m not sure they liked Vice enough to reward Bale. And many folks just like Malek, even though he can come off as eccentric (especially with his creepy Mr. Robot role influencing how he’s perceived). And it’s a way of rewarding BoRhap’s success, even if the Academy is a bit more iffy on the movie overall.

    There’s a lot of journalist pettiness and vanity here (Thompson and Bart upset about AMPAS president John Bailey personally snubbing them), but Bailey does sound incompetent in his role. Lots of poor communication.

    Y&R: Veteran Actor Returning

    EB was certainly extremely vocal on Twitter about his displeasure about Doug being pushed out, but he was also angry with Mal about the lack of Victor. From all that EB said, Mal was behind DD’s disappearance.

    We’ll see, but if you’re under investigation, it’s smart to get a lawyer, innocent or guilty.

    Unflattering Photos/Articles Of Soap Actors

    She was an exec at ABC Daytime starting in the mid-‘80s and was thought to be responsible for the ABC soaps’ resurgence in the early ‘90s. So I suppose P&G believed she could bring some heat and youth to their aging, floundering shows (GL/ATWT/AW), but all she did was decimate them ultimately.
