There’s a LOT to love ❤️ about the movie “Little”

Just thinking about this movie..🎥 makes me smile… 😊

I know you’re probably thinking 🤔……

Sooooo….What’s the BIG deal… about “Little?”

Well here’s the run down….

Jordan… also known as “the mean queen 👑

is played perfectly by (Regina Hall).

She is a hardcore business mogul… and super Diva Fashionista! 


To describe her as difficult to work with… is to say the least….

Y’all this chick is mean! A corporate BOSS/MEAN GIRL… at the highest degree. 💯‼️

She stresses her long-suffering assistant… (April), out to the max…
 😲🙄😶

Issa Rae playing the role of “April” —brings something special to this part… There’s a sweetness… and genuine kindness in her personality.

“April” is an awkward… pleasant and well meaning employee… who just wants to do good in the world. 🌍 

Seems fair enough right⁉️
((( insert loud buzzer sound)))  🚨 

Time out…🙅🏽‍♀️  you know this 
“Diva Boss”  ain’t gonna let that happen. She’s not giving her ANY peace… or room to grow.
Jordan micro manages… and harasses her… and ALL her employees on a daily basis. 
Well… -FINALLY- she is taken down several notches… 
As a result, Jordan faces an unexpected threat to her personal life and career when she is magically transformed into a “little” girl. LOL! 😆
Yep! The 13 year old version of herself. 
played to the “hilt” by ( Marsai Martin)  

The days following the magic act… are hilarious! 

Watching Marsai Martin in action is a pleasure!

This young lady takes this role… adds color.. 💜💙💚🧡❤️

fabulosity…

attitude… 💁🏽‍♀️ diva-tude

…. and a dash of black girl magic 🖤🎀🖤🎀🖤🎀🖤🎀🖤🎀🖤🎀🖤🎀

and 🏃🏿‍♀️ RUNS with it!

You hear 👂🏽 me ⁉️


This little diva did that!
🙌🏽🙌🏽💕🙌🏽🙌🏽
and did I mention that she served as EXECUTIVE PRODUCER… Yessss she did.
This whole project is based on an idea SHE pitched. She has also earned an exclusive first look deal with universal pictures! Another historic power move… for a young actor. #Bam! 👊🏽
#YouGoMarsai !!!! #TheBestIsYetToCome!✨😄✨
Marsai… is known for her role as the moody twin sister…Diane Johnson in the ABC comedy series “Black-ish.”
Based on her popularity on that show… and the feedback I KNOW she’s gonna get from this role… Marsai ‘s star ⭐️ is going to SHINE even brighter.
I can’t wait to watch her grow… and evolve as an actress! 😃
The LITTLE Film is directed by
Tina Gordon Chism…
It’s refreshing and fun! A feel good movie for sure… with great one liners… funny scenes… and modern day accents. Oh! How did y’all like her smart home feature “Home Girl ???” Cute huh⁉️
It’s voiced… by none other than the delightful Tracee Ellis Ross.
Tracee also happens to play Marsai’s MOM on Blackish! #Yay for #girlpower! #Strong #Female #SupportSystems #FemaleEmpowermentRocks!
🖤✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽🖤✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽🖤✊🏽✊🏽
High five ✋🏽 to Tina Gordon Chism for her approach to this magical modern day fairy tale!Tina is a director….. and screenwriter. Her films include Peeples, ATL and Drumline.
Tina co-wrote the scripts to “Little” and “What Men Want.”
I think this is an empowering film for all little girls to see… with lots of teachable moments.
Big girls have a lot to take away too… and everyone is going to get some great laughs!
Don’t you love when there’s a happy ending… and characters grow.. and change for the better??? Friendship and Trust are definitely subjects deserving of a more positive approach. Round up your circle ⭕️ of friends… to share in some feel good moments!
We all deserve a “Littlehappiness in our hearts! ❤️

..And that’s a Wrap!🎬 Highlights from the 2019 Oscars! ⭐️ 🎥⭐️

For the first time… in 30 years, the Gallant “Knight” fondly called “Oscar” didn’t have a host to lead his grand Night.

But….the famous Golden statue, representing the HIGHEST achievements in film stood strong. Surrounded by a galaxy of stars…

Good ole’ “Oscar” was able to #ShineOn

Everything was just “rosey” when Oscar was “re-invented” with thousands of specially designed RED Flowers for the stage.

(

The show flowed steadily along… a few amusing moments… but otherwise very dignified and straight forward. The objective was to present awards… and that mission was accomplished..

The 91st Oscars was broadcast LIVE on ABC, SUNDAY FEBRUARY 24th, at the Dolby Theater…

in Hollywood. ⭐️ 

The most anticipated award show of the season.. was shown LIVE.. in more than 225 countries.

The band Queen featuring Adam Lambert opened Oscars 2019 with a medley of Queens GREATEST hits.

Let me share a few of my favorite moments from this star studded night..

Regina King won best supporting actress for her portrayal of a loving, supportive and strong mother in the film “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

This also happened to be King’s first Oscar nomination. She gave a very heartfelt acceptance…graciously acknowledging her own mother…


Mom, I love you so much,” Regina said to her mother…sitting in the audience. “Thank you for teaching me that God…always has been leaning in my direction…God is good all the time.”

Amen Regina! 🙏🏽
The crowd cracked up… when Melissa McCarthy came out in an over the top Queen get up… with LOTS rabbits 🐰 attached up and down a long train… 🐇 🐇  🐇 and every where else! ( LOL!) she even took things up a notch… with a finger puppet rabbit! A clear tribute to the film “The Favourite” which is cra-zy!!! I mean.. it’s just over the top! If you haven’t seen it.. go.. but be ready to go on a wild royal adventure!
Now that was a hilarious costume! She was joined onstage by Brian Tyree Henry… who also wore an over the top get up!

And speaking of Costumes…

Ruth E. Carter won best costume design for her unique creations for the mighty kingdom of “WAKANDA!

Carter also designed Costumes for (“Amistad,” “Malcolm X”) She thanked Spike Lee… for giving her… the first breakthrough Job. Ruth also acknowledged the people all around the world… who helped her create the amazing looks for the hit film.

This has been a long time coming,” Carter said in her acceptance speech.

“Marvel may have created the first black superhero, but through costume design, we turned him into an African king…

“It’s been my life’s honor to create costumes.” ~Ruth E. Carter


Ruth Carter makes history… becoming the first African-American winner in the Costume category.
Congratulations Ruth! 🎉
You’re a trend setter.. cut from the finest royal cloth! Congratulations Queen 👑 Designer! 

Hannah Beachler and Jay Hart won best production design for creating the powerful world of Wakanda in “Black Panther.”
Beachler also makes history… as the first African-American to grab the big honor.. and to EVER be nominated in this category. 

Keegan Michael Key… hit the scene to do his part of the show… Mary Poppins style! Wowza! What an entrance! He came down from the ceiling of the Dolby Theater… Umbrella open… feet properly positioned.. and everything! 😄
Oh my! This dude is hilarious!

Keegan introduced the Mary Poppins Returns Best Song nominee “The Place Where Lost Things Go,” This Song was performed by the DIVINE Miss “M” Bette Midler! She’s a legend!!!

…. and so is Barbara Streisand!!!

I was thrilled to see her appear to present an Award. The super star singer, actress and director praised Spike Lee’s work, and film BlackKlansman! 🙌🏼🙌🏼 🎥🙌🏼🙌🏼


It was a tremendous night… for the strong… but quiet film gaining national attention for MEXICO. 🇲🇽

Alfonso Cuarón won best cinematography for “Roma,” -and- best Director for the film… now showing on Netflix. 
Two oscars wins during this telecast… and two others before show.
This victory makes him the first director to win for shooting his own film. 

By the way…A total of NINE films from Mexico… were nominated for Academy Awards this year.

✨✨ Booom Shak-a-lacka!!! ✨✨

Spike Lee won best adapted screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman.”

 This is his first EVER Academy Award Win! Wooo-hoooo!!!! And one of the most EXCITING moments of the night!

🙌🏽🙌🏽♥️🙌🏽🙌🏽 The famous Director, educated at Morehouse College in Atlanta… was presented his Oscar from another Big time man of Morehouse College… Top Actor Samuel Jackson.

Jackson was super excited about the victory.. shouting “The House!!!” Which is a well known “Verbal Salute” to the historic black college for men.

I must also salute 👊🏽John David Washington… for his leading role in BlackKlansman…

Washington is also a distinguished graduate 🎓 of Morehouse College!!!

I have to give a shout out.. to my own Alma Mater.. Clark Atlanta University… (formerly known as Clark College) right across the way from Morehouse College.

The same school of Communications/ Broadcasting & Journalism… where I attended College …is where Spike Lee took his early film/ broadcast/ journalism classes… that jump started his career as a director!

In my Spike Lee voice:

🗣 #ShoNuff!

Oh! Spike Lee gave a bright & bold nod to the late singer/musician “Prince” wearing a purple suit and hat… and a necklace with the special symbol… attached to the late performer… and his brand. Also… the rings worn by the late actor Bill Nunn… ( also a Morehouse man!),known as “radio Raheem” …. in the movie

“Do the right thing….

Spike also rocked some GOLD Jordan’s… with Michael Jordan’s personal symbol on one show.. and Spikes “40 acres and a mule branding on the other.

During his acceptance speech… Lee urged people to “do the right thing” in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.

“The 2020 presidential election is around the corner,” He said. “Let’s all mobilize, let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love vs hate. Let’s do the right thing. You know I had to get that in there.”

( For those of you… who may not get that reference… “Do the right thing… is the title of one of Spikes most popular films… and one of his first major films.

Rami Malek, who played Freddie Mercury, won best actor for “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Malek is the second actor of Arab descent nominated for an Oscar, following “Lawrence of Arabia” star Omar Sharif. Malek is the first to win this honor.
 I was deeply touched by his words, and extremely Happy to see him Win! The words of his acceptance speech were very moving.
And you know what? I learned something pretty cool about Rami… “He’s a TWIN !!!” Yep! Another brother from the same mother. A mother who was overcome with joy… seeing her son win.. the highest honors in the world of motion pictures/ Film. 🎥 🎞
During his moment in the spotlight… moments after winning… Rami said:

“I am the son of immigrants from Egypt, a first-generation American. And part of my story is being written right now. I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you, and everyone who believed in me for this moment. It’s something I will treasure for the rest of my life.”

Rami honored the legendary band Queen…and talked about Freddy Mercury’s amazing life story.

“The fact that I’m celebrating him and this story with you tonight is proof that we’re longing for stories like this,” Malek said.

🎼 🎶 Strike a cord! 🎹 Lady Gaga WINS!!! She was so excited!

Lady Gaga takes the top honor for Best Original Song… created for a re-make… of a popular… dramatic 
love ❤️story. 

GaGa won an Oscar for “Shallow,” the song from “A Star Is Born,” which also happened to be Gaga’s biggest acting opportunity… in her career so far..

During her acceptance speech, Lady Gaga thanked her sister, her parents and co-star Bradley Cooper, who performed the duet with her for the film.

There was quite an impressive group of singers, and musical performers showcasing 2019 Oscar nominated songs. 

They included Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, nominees Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, and special guest Bette Midler. Legendary group members of Queen… wowed the crowd… performing with Adam Lambert.

The Oscar stage was decorated in gold… and THOUSANDS of specially treated roses… flown in from Ecuador. It is a lengthy process to make them look so radiant and fresh!

Several Tall & small images of Oscars graced the stage!

Award presenters on center stage included: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Tessa Thompson, Tyler Perry, Constance Wu, Javier Bardem, Angela Bassett, Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jordan, Serena Williams, Michael Keaton, Paul Rudd, and Michelle Yeoh.

Overall… The 2019 Academy Awards…was a low key show… with major breakthroughs for performers, cast and crew members of color. 

Women captured 15 of the distinguished Honors.

👉🏽 There were a few surprises….

In the Best Actress category. Everybody figured Glenn Close would finally nab the honor.. after 7 nominations…..

But– the award went to Olivia Colman for her portrayal of Queen Anne in The Favourite.

She gave an incredible performance by the way… but like I said earlier that movie is WILD! Like Dangerous liaisons pumped up on steroids! (LOL!) 😄

The winner… Olivia Coleman was shocked and surprised, getting bombarded with lots of kisses from her husband, and co-Star Emma Stone.

I’m glad to see Greenbook take home Best Picture… and soooo happy to see Mahershala AliWIN his second Academy Award…

( Ironically… this was the only nominated film that I didn’t get to see… I heard GREAT reviews… but it was hard to catch in theaters! Geez!

but seriously though…deep in my soul… I REALLY wanted Black Panther to win BEST picture!

🐾♥️🐾

This production was so well done… ( It was Superb I’d say… )

🙌🏽🙌🏽🐾 👑🖤🙌🏽🙌🏽 It broke record numbers in box offices around the world… raking in a billion dollars..

(and still counting!!) 💵💵💵💵

Great story, phenomenal characters, costumes, songs, actions, customs, traditions & production designs…A rare film… where all the key people involved… were AFRICAN AMERICANS!

Top Quality all the way around….

You know what…I’ m going to insert a BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE for Director Ryan Coogler,

and the entire cast & crew of Black Panther.. 🐾

( thunderous clapping—> 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽—> more applause…. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Come on’ now… CLAP !!!!

I wish this production continued success! I can’t wait to see what adventures in WAKANDA are coming up next…Fans can’t wait !!!

#WakandaForever 🙅🏽‍♀️

While a lot of different film titles were announced Oscar Sunday…Diversity was the TRUE winner…

(((when all was said and done.))

I’m so proud to see members of the Academy acknowledge GREAT work… from deserving people!  

ALL TYPES of talent.… from ALL walks of life!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽♥️🙌🏽🙌🏽 A true reflection of the real world… 🌎 and all the creative souls that make it go round..

Hooray for Hollywood!!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 🎥 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

But wait… ☝🏽there’s more…

Live with Kelly and Ryan” took over the Oscars stage… immediately following the show.

And so… most folks stopped through after Oscar Parties. People stayed up ALL NIGHT… to get more behind the scenes details… from Oscars 2019.

During the Oscars telecast, the first person winners saw after leaving the stage was Kelly Ripa.

She offered winners, and other celebrities tequila and candy!

It was really nice to see the fun exchanges, and heartfelt interviews… where Academy Award Winners got to Thank… and acknowledge other important people… they couldn’t recognize during the strictly timed acceptance speech.

Ryan Seacrest also gave us a peak inside his preparation days… before the Oscars.

👉🏽 please believe he’s got to learn a LOT to stay on his toes! Practice! Practice! Practice!

It truly takes a village to create his “perfect” image.. with everything from the right bow tie… and tuxedo… to proper lighting sound.. and camera angles.

After his “Oscar School preps” one of America’s favorite hosts knows everything about everybody!

Ryan and Kelly also have great chemistry together! It’s obvious everyday on the show… but even more… when they do pre-taped spoofs!

Their latest one was mimicking Lady Gaga.. and Bradley Cooper in “A star is born.” If you haven’t seen it… look for it online! #PureGenius! ✨😆✨

2019 Golden Globes Re-cap by Sparkle “E”

Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg hosted the 76th Golden Globe Awards, Sunday night, January 6, 2019…on NBC.

image1.jpeg
I’ll start by shining the spotlight on Sandra Oh… 
a little ✨BRIGHTER✨ because she is the first actress of Asian descent to ever host the show… -and- the 1st in 39 years to win the Globe for best leading TV actress.
image5.jpeg

she won the 2019 Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama for BBC America’s Killing Eve….
((( but it’s not her first time winning…. ✨😃✨)))

Oh won her first Golden Globe in 2006 for her role as Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy
Way to GO… Sandra Oh‼️
Yay‼️‼️‼️
👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏👏👏
The Golden Globes awards show was held at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Beverly Hills, California 🌴

My ✨FAVORITE✨ Moments of the 2019 telecast: 📺 included an early bit in the audience by Jim Carey… gripping about his seat…😆
 and then…Host Sandra Oh… tossing to her proud parents in the audience… #BigSmilesAllAround 
I also really enjoyed watching 
Special Awards Presentations:
image2.jpeg
I was HAPPY 😀 to see
one of my favorite comedians EVER… win an award named in her honor! 🙌🏽🙌🏽❤️🙌🏽🙌🏽 
Funny man 
Steve Carell presented the award…on the telecast.
For most of my life… I have been a Carol Burnett “SUPER FAN!!!” 😄
I couldn’t wait for Saturday night to come… so I could watch her legendary comedy sketch show… 📺
“The Carol Burnett Show.” She played so many GREAT characters!!!! Can I get a Tarzan shout 🗣 of approval for the inaugural Carol Burnett award… presented to one of the 1st ladies of comedy… give it up again..((((Applause 😃 please: ))))

Dick Van Dyke 93, took the stage with his “Mary Poppins Returns”
 costar Emily Blunt to present an intro about the movie, which was nominated for best motion picture, comedy or musical. 
Dick Van Dyke joked that he gets a really good job every 50 years! (LOL! 😆)
In fact… when he appeared in the original “Mary Poppins”
in 1964…he had to PAY Walt Disney… to also play a smaller role…

Van Dyke is FAMOUS for playing the chimney sweeper “Bert”…but the actor recently revealed that he had to give up a bit of cash money..💵 💰 💵 to Mr. Disney… to portray the film’s banker, Mr. Dawes Sr.

“I said, ‘I’ll do it for nothing.’ But…. I had to give him $4,000 dollars to do the part.  I say that was a GREAT investment… that’s STILL paying off today! 

In the new movie… “Mary Poppins Returns..” Dick Van Dyke is playing the elderly son.. of Banker Dawes Sr. !!! 

Julie Andrews… the original “Mary Poppins” chose NOT to make a cameo in the film… reportedly saying.. she wanted ALL the attention to be focused on Emily Blunt. Blunt is getting SPLENDID reviews… and loads of praise for during a wonderful job as the magical
 Mary Poppins ‼️ 
Hip! hip HoORay‼️‼️‼️
✨✨🙌🏽🙌🏽❤️🙌🏽🙌🏽✨✨
Best supporting actress in a motion picture: Regina King, for her role… as a compassionate…and loving mother in “If Beale Street Could Talk” 

During her acceptance speech…

Regina King pledges every project she produces will involve 50 percent women‼️‼️

✨✨ 🙌🏽🙌🏽❤️🙌🏽🙌🏽 ✨✨

Best original song:
“Shallow” performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in “A Star ⭐️ is Born”  The song was written by Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and 
Andrew Wyatt 

Green Book took home TOP honors at the Golden Globes —

Best supporting actor in a  motion picture went to Mahershala Ali in Universals “Green Book” 


The movie 🎥 also won for best motion picture, musical or comedy.

#ThereSheGoesAgain! 👠

Keep Up! 😉

BOW… to NO ONE ‼️Mary Queen 👑 of Scots: A struggle for POWER & GLORY✨✨

They were cousins and neighboring queens, ruling the strongest nations in Europe.

Mary Stuart, was queen of Scotland… and queen consort in France…

while Elizabeth I … was queen of England.

As a person intrigued by history… I’ve seen TONS of films, and documentaries about King Henry VIII and his daughter..Queen Elizabeth.

In films about Queen Elizabeth.. the INTENSE rivalry between these RED HEADED cousins is addressed.. but I think most people..( like myself 🙋🏽‍♀️)….have wanted to know MORE‼️

Josie Rourke’s film gives us an amazing look into this period of history…

You can immediately feel the authenticity of it all… the sights… the sounds… you get all the “FEELS” of the atmosphere.

There are many revelations that have been rarely talked about.. from historic accounts.

The film starts off in a most dramatic way. We see the historic accounts of that fateful day…February 8, 1587… what happens???

I’ll cut it… right here… and insist see it all unfold on the big screen.

It’s dark.. and feels so cold. Overall this film gives one of the most realistic portrayals of what I’ve imagined things were REALLY LIKE… during the 15th century… in that region of the world.

The film 🎞 is based on the book “Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart...by British Historian, Dr. John Guy

Scotland is a mostly Protestant nation, and Mary is a Catholic queen.

She also has a rightful claim to the throne of England, ruled by her cousin Elizabeth, who is a Protestant.

After a tease… about Mary’s fate…

The film flashes back several years… to when the newly widowed Mary returns Scotland.. after living most of her life in France. She was Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18…

In her absence, the region was ruled by regents. The first was her mother… and then her half-brother James, Earl of Moray (James McArdle). They have a ceremonious meeting.. when she sails back onto the region.. and takes back control.. right away.

Mary was born to rule! Her father, King James of Scotland, died when she was six days old — she’s lived her entire life with the riches and power of a royal sovereign.

Elizabeth’s story is much different.

She was born in the midst of scandal.Her father, King Henry VIII, split from the Catholic Church..to marry her mother,

Anne Boleyn..

Boleyn was once a lady in waiting… for another royal wife. There are a lot of motion pictures about Anne Boleyn… and her sister that are quite intriguing too.

👉🏽 Back to King Henry and Boleyn…After they were married…and she didn’t give him the son he wanted.. he had her executed when Elizabeth was 2 years old.

Until she ascended to the throne…in her 20’s.. and for many years after..Elizabeth lived under constant threat of her life.

Mary Queen of Scots, stars Margot Robbie… as “Queen 👑 Elizabeth”

and Saoirse Ronan… as Mary, “Queen 👑 of Scots”

These Queen cousins… were constantly pitted against each other… by the men who pulled their strings like puppets.

It appears… they were forced to be enemies.

Their feud was one of history’s most intense!

The TENSION went from how much power they had a rulers… to how great their personal lives turned out.

Mary was able to marry a distant cousin and have a child.

Elizabeth was childless… and never married. She was often afraid of having her power taken away by another man… and later referred to herself as masculine and strong. A powerful force married to England!

Though powerful… accounts claim Mary was not only more youthful… but more attractive.

Saoirse Ronan is perfect in the role of Mary…

She exudes Mary’s youth and beauty…and demonstrates great confidence as a ruler..

You see a softer side in private moments.. kindness behind the scenes. Mary enjoys fun.. and folly.. sharing in personal conversation with her ladies.. and man in waiting… A man in waiting???

uh huh! Watch the movie… and see how THAT worked out!

Shocking details are revealed…

🎼 🎶 The music in the film forces you prepare yourself for what’s to come… 🎵

It sounds like a ~mysterious~ revelation of sorts…

musical chords set the tone for brilliant moments… and intense revelations..

☝🏽 …and speaking of revelations..Here’s another.. I just found out: All of Queen Mary’s ladies in waiting… are named “Mary”

How clever!!

She is able to stay hidden among them.. whenever she desires…and this is reflected in the film.

Margot Robbie does a commendable job… showing us many sides of Elizabeth.

Strong. Stubborn. Insecure. Cautious. Elizabeth was a lonely ruler… determined not to be controlled by anyone… while she is known to have had love ❤️ interests.. She kept them at a certain distance.

This movie also offers some surprising information about how Queen Elizabeth really looked…

Her face was scarred from a bout of smallpox.

I’ve often wondered why she wore the white faced makeup in paintings… Sure it was the style of the day… but maybe this helped cover up things more with the heavy rouge… and painted red 👄 lips..

Queen Elizabeth wore a lot of fabulous wigs… that were specially made for her… during her reign.

In addition to getting make up done for hours…Robbie also had to put on a bald cap to complete

To complete Elizabeth’s look..

you may also notice a few others facial changes to make the actress look more like the virgin queen.. including a prosthetic nose.

One major thing you’ll notice right away about this film is the diversity. Major roles are wonderfully brought to life.. by actors of various nationalities.

Mary, Queen of Scots leads by example… proving that films of this magnitude… deserve to give a fair shot to actors capable of doing good work.

💁🏽‍♀️ Another round of applause from ME!!!

👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 “🙌🏽” 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

The director, Josie Rourke..

says she was not going to do this project any other way..

To that… I say BRAVO!!!

Though every single instance may not have been “written down” in historic accounts.. we know these lands included people from different nationalities…

and foreign lands nearby.

Places that were just a boat ride…(or voyage), away! There was often trading.. or jobs.. that required skills of all people. So the demographics of the day… was often changing over the centuries…

( I imagine…)

As history has also shown us..both Queens were were quite stylish!

They wore the finest headpieces, gowns, jewels and headpieces of the day.

The costumes in the film… Mary Queen of Scots are most extravagant!

Costume design is expertly handles by Alexandra Byrne..

Byrne and her team also did costuming from the “Elizabeth” films… starring Kate Blanchett..

There’s another bit of amazing bit of information regarding costuming… I heard directly from film Director Josie Rourke…

Most of the costumes used in the film..were made out of denim!!!!

There were only a few created in fine silks and what not.

Back to the denim… It was used in all colors and textures.. and very cost effect with the budget. Every single costume in the film.. was especially designed…

I’m sure this design team will receive multiple award nominations… as so many others involved with this film. I predict a BIG year for “Mary Queen of Scots in EVERY category in 2019.

Hair designs..are also noteworthy!

Makeup and hair designer Jenny Shircore won an Oscar for her work on 1998’s Elizabeth, and also brought her cast knowledge to this Focus Features project.

As far as this ancient history is concerned… I still wonder..What if…they could had become allies???

Could history could have played out differently???

What if.. these queens could have resolved issues… and become allies..

what if their burning 🔥 desires to be the greatest & most powerful Queen of all.. simmered down..

Several years ago…

Historian John Guy.. said a private collection of letters revealed that the rulers hinted at the possibility of meeting… to talk about things..

I can’t help my mind from racing… but I wonder….. if they really DID meet… FOR REAL!

It seems highly possible (to me..), with the curiosity we know they had with one another… and the curiosity.

In the film… the queens do follow through with a mysterious meeting…

In the movie…one queen declared that it should NEVER be revealed they had personal contact. It would be denied if it ever leaked.

Until this very day… Historians have debated that such a meeting ever took place…

Use your imagination for a minute…

How many times have we seen dramatic scenes… on screen where scrolls, letters or historic records are burned… to omit certain details from history???

I wonder….. how many situations like this have actually occurred???

Art often imitated life….and I’ll just leave that… right here….

As Dr. John Guy stated… History always records details about those who triumphed in the end.. but he wanted to uncover more details about Mary…

And don’t forget… the most recent letters that “hinted” at meeting… were just uncovered in a private historic collection in 2010… who knows what other evidence is out there..

Mary ended up in England… seeking safety and protection… but…Elizabeth imprisoned her cousin and, eventually, had her executed after uncovering an assassination plot that Mary allegedly had knowledge about…

After nearly 20 years of captivity, Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, was beheaded on the order of Queen Elizabeth of England.

As so the film ends… as it begins… You’ll be utterly captivated by every moment in between… There’s never a dull moment for just over 2 hours..

Mary Queen of Scots Cast:

Irish Actress, Saoirse Ronan as Mary, Queen of Scots.

Australian Actress, Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth I, Mary, Queen of Scots’ cousin and Queen of England and Ireland.

Jack Lowden as Lord Darnley, Mary, Queen of Scots’ second husband, catholic cousin

Joe Alwyn as Robert Dudley, Queen Elizabeth’s counselor and lover.

David Tennant as John Knox, a Protestant

The Focus Features film is

from an adapted screenplay by

Beau Willimon

Plus… Academy Award winners costume designer Alexandra Byrne, hair and make-up designer Jenny Shircore

Mary Queen of Scots..is definitely going to stir up more interest… in this period of history… and increase the desire to see more from this era..

—>Keep Up! 😉<—

It’s a GEM in the royal crown 👑 of Anthologies! The Romanoff’s series now showing…on Amazon the Prime

Emmy-winning producer Matthew Weiner

of (“Mad Men”) fame…created the Romanoffs… which I say…is

a masterpiece of

“mini-movies.” Each episode is a rare GEM… in the royal 👑 crown.

You see… every installment of this dramatic series is different…

The stories grab your attention right away at the beginning… and leave you wanting MORE … at the end..

I immediately liked the idea of this series….. when I heard the name ((( ROMANOFFS)))

Quite frankly… As a history buff… who has been fascinated with the Romanov dynasty… I was looking forward to watching something different….

After watching 6 episodes …. I’m still anxious to see what’s NEXT…. You know… with so much going on in the world these days… It’s great to escape to a different place… and time.

I’m also one of those people who appreciates… having something great to look forward to…. Don’t you???

Before you jump into the new storylines… Let me cue you in.. on the TRUE story… that serves as the foundation for this series.

The Romanov family was the last imperial dynasty

to rule Russia.

They were high-ranking aristocrats in Russia during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

The Romanovs

(historic spelling), first came to power in 1613.

Over the next three centuries, 18 Romanovs took the Russian throne, including Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Alexander I and Nicholas II.

Czar Nicholas II married Princess Alix of Hesse, a duchy in the German Empire in 1894, shortly after his coronation.

Alix, who would later take the name Alexandra Feodorovna, was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria… of the United Kingdom.

Nicholas and Alexandra had four daughters—Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia—and one son, Alexei.

During the Russian Revolution of 1917, Bolshevik revolutionaries toppled the monarchy, ending the Romanov dynasty.

Czar Nicholas II , Czarina Alexandra, their five children, and four attendants were

held captive & executed…

They were shot by firing squad and bayoneted to death by Bolshevik troops.

The tragic event has sparked interest for years… and of course the legendary tales of how the youngest daughter named “Anastasia” allegedly escaped into the woods… and disappeared…

The legend continued for nearly a century, inspiring numerous books and films.

Over the years, numerous theories and speculations swirled around…

Dozens of women came forward, claiming to be the Romanov princess.

Rumors claim Anastasia went on to lead a normal life… living quietly under the radar..

Historic accounts claim no one survived… but many.. until this very day.. hold on to the belief… that the young girl escaped…

The remains of the family were discovered in a mass grave in the Ural Mountains in 1991. DNA testing confirmed the identities of the Nicholas, Alexandra and three of their daughters.

The remains of Alexei and one of his sisters remained a mystery until 2007… when a second grave was discovered near the larger mass grave.

This grave contained the remains of two partially burned skeletons, which DNA testing showed to belong to the families only son… Alexei… and one of his sisters, likely Anastasia or Maria..

There are additional details, and stories…connected with this dynasty… that are chilling…mysterious… and intriguing.

This entire saga caught my attention… and I just wanted to learn all I could…

I’ve studied this history for years… along with other research on the Royal 👑 families of the world… Did you know most of them are relatives?! Some… very close cousins …

I’ve read as many books and articles … as I could find..

Not to mention visiting museums… and traveling exhibitions featuring the Romanov dynasty.

I’ve seen the famous jewels… and the Fabergé eggs… Check this out! 👇🏽

There were 50 “Imperial” eggs, 43 of which still exist. They were made for the Russian Tsars Alexander lll, and Nicholas ll … as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers.

The most expensive egg was the Winter Egg of 1913. That cost just under 25,000 rubles, or about $12,500, not that expensive compared to necklaces that Fabergé had sold to the imperial family in 1894…

The Romanov jewels.. are spectacular! I’ve seen some of them… with my own eyes!

Stories claim Czarina Alexandria has her girls to hide as many jewels as possible when they were held captive. Accounts say they were sewn inside clothes.. and pillowcases.

They were reportedly discovered… after the family was executed.

I’ve looked at as many historic photographs and footage in documentaries.. as possible.. each time learning some NEW details.

Again… I didn’t know what to expect from this show…I just had a feeling… it was gonna be GOOD!

( I like to get into new productions with an open mind.)

I sit down READY to be educated, enlightened inspired and entertained.

And of course… this latest streaming series…from Amazon prime video does not disappoint!

I must admit… I was extremely curious about how they were going to tie in this history.. with modern day situations.

The anthology tells stories of people who BELIEVE… that they are descendants of the Russian royal family.

Each episode is about an hour.. or close to an hour and a half..unfolding in different locations.. all around the world! 🌎 I find these episodes to be culturally enriching… with wonderful cinematography. On some of these episodes… you’ll feel like you’re sightseeing…

So far… eight episodes have been produced…. They’re coming out every week.

Filming takes place on three continents — with a new cast every time. All of the stories are complex… and come along with emotional issues… that make you pay attention. They make you care deeply about the main characters.

If you’re like me… you’ll make a quick connection with the characters… and care about what happens with them.

The actors featured appearing in the series are: Aaron Eckhart, Amanda Peet, Diane Lane, Kathryn Hahn, Noah Wyle, and “Mad Men” alumni Christina Hendricks and John Slattery.

Matthew Weiner writes and directs each episode of the Amazon original series…

He also serves as an Executive producers… along with Semi Chellas.

Crazy Rich Asian does CRAZY 💴 🤑 💴 GOOD at the Movie 🎥 Box Office ‼️

News Flash!!! 📸 “Crazy Rich Asians” is now the biggest romantic comedy hit film…in three years!!!

This delightful movie centers around Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), an economics professor from New York…who is dating Nick Young (Henry Golding), also a professor.

When Chinese American, Rachel…goes to Nick’s family home in Singapore… She discovers that he comes from great family wealth… –and- he’s considered one of the country’s most eligible bachelors!

-Wow!- Wait… wait….wait… there’s MORE to this intriguing saga. Rachel has to deal with jealous socialites,… Nick’s quirky relatives and his hard core mother! A strong & proud woman..who… disapproves of her son’s choice in a mate..

See….. people all over the world face the same problems in life. It’s a bonus… to gain insight from the wisdom and choices of others… when you focus in on situations… through a different lense… Rightttt?????

After dating a year… Rachel & Nick step into the spotlight… and quite a bit of chaos when they attend Nicks best friends wedding.

Hold Up‼️🖐🏽

When I tell you this is “THE” most ✨spectacular✨ wedding that I have EVER seen in my ENTIRE LIFE….

✨You Better BELIEVE IT!✨

Never in my wildest DREAMS… could I have imagined anything so BEAUTIFUL!!!! It was

✨✨BREATHTAKING!!!✨✨

Most definitely a FEEL GOOD movie… it a culturally enriching masterpiece… that should not be missed! How gratifying to see that people from all races… and nationalities are connecting to a GOOD STORY… and not a presentation with people who ONLY look like them! #Yay! for #diversity & #inclusion again!

“Crazy Rich Asians” is the first Hollywood film in 25 years… that puts an Asian-American story in the spotlight… with an ALL ASIAN CAST. The last big success was “The Joy Luck Club” in 1993.

The movie is based on a best-selling novel 👇🏽

Kevin Kwan published ” Crazy Rich Asians in 2013…

Kwan was immediately approached by a producer.. who wanted to take the project to the Big Screen… “If” he turned the heroine (Rachel), into a “white girl….” Say what?????

Well… Kwan politely said “NO THANK YOU… that’s not what this is about.. you’ve missed the point completely.

It took some years… but Kwan was finally able to see his vision unfold on the big screen the way he intended. Movie goers get to see incredible scenery… delectable foods… and lavish wardrobes.. It’s a celebration of beauty and culture in every possible way. I was absolutely thrilled to feast my eyes on this wonderful production, and it’s ALL Asian cast.

I was “thrilled” to see this movie publicized well… and get a LOT of positive buzz prior to it’s release.

The movie lived up to EVERY bit of the hype! It was an incredible experience… that filled my heart ♥️ with great JOY!!!

Just when I thought I had watched the most beautiful jewels, scenery… set designs food and fashions…. There was more! Everything just keep getting better… and more lavish! There is such attention to detail with every aspect in this movie! Kudos to all the people who made this project possible!!!! A huge round of APPLAUSE!

✨✨✨ 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 ✨✨

I knew I was going to support the film… but the PR campaign…made me look forward to going.

I’m glad a lot of other people also showed up in theaters… and continue coming in BIG numbers.. after “word of mouth” recommendations…

This tremendous show of support by Movie goers has made this movie #1 !!!! Yep! The crazy big bucks… are STILL ROLLING in from around the globe! 🌎

#Chaching! $$$💰 $$$$💰$$$$💰 $$$$💰

With the HUGE SUCCESS of other culturally diverse films… starring people of color like “Black Panther” —> “Girls Trip” —>

“Hidden Figures” —-> “Get Out” —> It sets well in my soul… that ALL people are finally embracing great movies… about people who come from different cultures… and walks of life… and more importantly… Hollywood

Studios are recognizing the fact that people will buy tickets… and this diverse films are a BIG DEAL! Hey! They’ve got to keep this good fortune going for minority cast… and give fans what they want! Not to mention… great roles for actors of color… who deserve to earn a living… and be recognized for their talent! There so many other great stories out there… and people of color who have the ideas.. and story treatments. I’m keeping HOPE ALIVE… that the studios will do MORE to recruit people who have been waiting for a shot! From writers.. and producers…to more EXECUTIVES and actors of color…

Yours truly has been waiting patiently for a major breakthrough… while writing ✍🏽 BLOGS like this one.. and maintains “SPARKLE -E!!” I’m proud to support those who have finally made it!!! Hooray for this film… and all the others featuring minority performers! 👍🏽👍🏽

The HUMAN EXPERIENCE is relatable to each and every one of us. When it gets down to it… we are really more alike than different.

We face similar challenges in life…and value the same wonderful experiences. Every deserves a bit of sweetness and goodness… because life can be rough! Going to a nice movie…is sometimes the closest people can get to a Happy Ending…

I appreciate being entertained, enlightened and educated from a different point of view… It’s always refreshing to be exposed to something NEW! That’s EXACTLY why… people need to be open and willing to just do it!!!

Your Spirit will be grateful!!! 🙏🙏🏽🙏🏼🙏🏻🙏🏾🙏🏻

An amazing night… at the 2018 Daytime ☀️Emmys

Oh yes… It was quite… a night! 🌙✨

I thought the 2018

Daytime ☀️ Emmys…. was just fascinating to watch! There were so many great moments… but I’m only going to highlight a few ✨shining✨ examples…

The Daytime Emmys took place…at the Pasadena auditorium.. in Pasadena, Ca… The grand affair was hosted again this year by Mario Lopez (“Extra”) and Sheryl Underwood..from (“The Talk”)

At the beginning of the show…they expressed support for the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Lopez also said, “Let me be clear: This is not a show about politics.”

It was a show celebrating the best things to watch on television during during the day… Everything from soap operas… to talk shows… variety shows… informative programming… and game shows…

Wayne Brady was absolutely stunned when he won the award for outstanding game show host.

Brady has hosted “Let’s Make a Deal” since 2009…and has been nominated for best game show host every year — This was Host first WIN! He said he was hungry… and about to leave and go to a restaurant to eat… He also admitted that he thought Steve Harvey was going to win…

While Brady thanked his production team and staff…the teleprompter directed him to wrap it up, Brady kept talking… and said: “It took me nine years to get here. Suck it!”

The audience applauded and laughed… and Brady cherished the rest of his time onstage…with his 15-year-old daughter, Maile.

Another Fantastic father daughter moment on stage was between Host Mario Lopez… and his adorable daughter Gia.

She was sharp and spunky with her Dad presenting several awards categories… My heart melted when that cute little voice said “ This is fun Daddy… Can we do more?!”

Cute little Gia enthusiastically danced on stage to the upbeat music in between… and did a fantastic job… like a real pro! I certainly can see her following her Dad’s footsteps being ona cool kids show… If that is what she really wants to do. Gia certainly has the presence… and the personality!

Another cool thing about this show… is that the winners can bring anyone they like on stage for the acceptance…

It’s really nice to see several members of the cast or crew… and loved ones involved… Family members, and even a 🐕 Dog this year! Doggone right he was on stage… standing at attention for the big moment. Who says presenting an award has to be….. ( wait for it…..) 🐶 #ruff! 🐾🐾🐾

Harley, is the service dog and “best friend” of a soap star.

General Hospital actor Chris Van Etten, was a Marine who lost both his legs when a bomb went off in Afghanistan in 2012. He presented an award and shared his story. He was joined on stage by Actor Brandon McMillan, the host of “Lucky Dog,”

Speaking of Luck… The talk was favored with another Emmy this year!

Last year… they snagged the award for outstanding talk show Hosts…

This year…The Talk… on CBS won for best talk show… and the Audience was extremely excited. The show has an extremely loyal fan base..consistently keeping the show fueled with high powered energy… and reactions to topics, and other exciting things happening on the show….

Host Sharon Osborne was missing for the victory… because she was committed to another program…

meanwhile former host Ayisha Tyler, and new talk host Eve… were both on stage… to share in the victory! Congratulations to the ladies of the talk!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏽🙌🙌🏿🙌🏼🙌🏾🙌🏻🙌🏽

Talk about more unexpected winners… The ladies from “The real” was filled with emotion… when they gathered on stage to accept the award for Best Talk Show Hosts!

“We are in pure shock,” Loni Love said, and started crying. The other hosts — Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Houghton and Jeannie Mai —took turns at the mic… filled with joy… emphasizing the importance of a talk show that stars women of color.

Another one of my favorite moments of the night…was seeing two favorite icons from my childhood honored for their creative shows! Can you believe it’s the 50th anniversary of “Mr Roger’s Neighborhood… always a “pleasant day in the neighborhood!” It was calming to see him walk through the door🚪 and take of his sweater and shoes..👞 Then… you could hardly wait… to see what wonderful things would unfold… during the course of the show… Favorite characters… activities… arts and crafts and All!!! I just loved ❤️ every single thing!!!! 😄

I loved watching Mr. Rogers neighborhood… and the wonderful and wacky world of Sid & Marty Krofft

Sid & Marty… are a sibling team of television producers who were influential in children’s television and variety show programs in the USA 🇺🇸

–particularly throughout the 1970s and early 1980s

I remember one of their amusement theme parks being on top of a building in downtown Atlanta….

It was ..super fun… and something “different” to do..

In the soap opera category… More actors of color took home Emmys… than ever before:

Judge Greg Mathis… was also thrilled to be honored… saying his show is the longest running show featuring an African-American man.. in history!
