  1. Lil Nas X has his second No. 1, buoyed by the Satanic controversy:
  2. Something about Laur Allen felt very Bill Bell Y&R to me. She was beautiful and had sort of a sexy allure with her ScarJo raspy voice. Of course they had to kill her off.
  3. My initial issue with Ravi was that he seemed a bit like a South Asian stereotype. And they did lame things like GT/Phyllis giving him a makeover in one of those silly ‘80s dressing room makeover montages set to pop music. And he felt isolated from the other young characters, especially during a time when the show needed a more viable youth scene. (Like why not have him befriend Mariah or Devon or someone?) Yet Abhi Sinha did give him more depth, and he worked reasonably well with ED. I just wanted some direction, which the show overall didn’t get under Sussman’s watch until too late.
  4. I like RB as Hayden, but one issue I had with Rylee was that there wasn’t that spark. Maybe they’d have a different vibe here, and I know they have their fans who think differently than I do. Yeah, he works as sort of a B-list leading man. Not a show-dominating star.
  5. Like he might have been already dying before he was run over?
  6. Is the suggestion that he might be playing Ryan again?
  7. I mean, he’s not a bad actor. He just was never talented or charismatic enough to warrant the elevated profile he received.
  8. The dialogue on this show is often so generic, predictable, stilted, and without personality. Everyone speaks in the same slightly formal language.
  9. If this show becomes even slightly watchable, someone let me know lol. Even Y&R is more interesting.
  10. From USA (Actor Trevor LaPaglia)
  11. I don’t think they are ready to give Frances her third Best Actress. It would have to be an undeniable, generational performance like DDL in “Lincoln.” I thought Carey, Viola, and Andra Day were all ahead of her. I think Youn is now the Supporting Actress frontrunner. She has a good narrative; she’s a South Korean actress in this monumental “Stop Asian Hate” year, which is a year after they gave “Parasite” Best Picture yet nominated none of that film’s great cast. And it’s a good place to represent “Minari,” which is unlikely to win much else yet had enough support for a Best Pictu
  12. SAG Film winners were Ensemble: The Trial of the Chicago 7 Actor: Chadwick Boseman, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom Actress: Viola Davis, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom Supporting Actor: Daniel Kaluuya, Judas and the Black Messiah Supporting Actress: Yuh-Jung Youn, Minari Davis throws a loop in Best Actress. The other categories feel locked. I can imagine people being up in arms with the very white and male “Trial of the Chicago 7” winning Best Picture if indeed the acting winners are all POC.
  13. DAYS has Trask and had Haley, but Haley’s dead and Trask is only used sparingly as a heavy.
  14. I love Aldis Hodge. Those arms.
  15. It’s funny that both of those characters happened during Sussman’s reign. They weren’t particularly well-written but they had potential. Mal had no interest in either.
  16. Soaps have so many opportunities to cast nonwhite actors in different roles, and they don’t take them. For example, Ashland and Tara on Y&R could have been nonwhite, even with the twist of Kyle being Tara’s baby daddy. (I realize shows need to be careful with “negative” portrayals.)
  17. Hurkacz does move well for a bigger guy. What a run he had to the title.
  18. LOL I’m not watching, but I’m hearing the Hurkacz/Sinner final is a mess.
  19. It’s like they are trying to torture the audience.
  20. Svitolina and Monfils are engaged: https://www.instagram.com/p/CNNmJlNMMV8/?igshid=1o1rvfmy7rfr8 Oy.
