It’s the 73rd Prime time Emmy Awards!!!

The 2021 Emmy Awards was hosted Sunday, September 19, 2021, -LIVE- …by Cedric the Entertainer… on CBS and Paramount +

I have to give it to “Ceddy” He was engaging with the audience… and had me laughing out loud… all night long! ✨😆✨Cedric was very ~entertaining~ indeed! And dressed sharp as a tack! 📌

✨✨😆😅😂✨✨

I loved the bit with all his TV wives… (((he heeee!!! 😆))) That spontaneous situation made me giggle 😆 even more… (very cute!)

You ALL win the “wifey” award of the year!!! 🏆 Tichina Arnold, Niecy Nash, and Terry J. Vaughn…

The setting for Emmys 2021…looked more intimate, and warm.

Nominees and guests were seated at small tables, instead of rows at a theater.

It seemed like the audience fully enjoyed the evening, and all the good company.

It looked like a fun time!

This year’s ceremony took place at L.A. Live’s Event Deck instead of the Microsoft Theater, which has been home to the Emmys since 2008.

It was a night of memorable tributes… including one at the top of the show..to Rapper Biz Markie… 

This “surprise” tribute showcased the rap skills of several popular celebrities… and YES! It had plenty of flavor!!!

Rita Wilson, L.L Cool J, Lil Dickie, and Cedric the Entertainer got the Emmy’s off to a great start… by rockin’ the house to a custom rendition of Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend.”

As the show continued… presenter Kerry Washington gave a heartfelt tribute to Michael K. Williams, who passed away… just a few weeks before the Emmy Awards show.

During her presentation, Kerry said: “Michael was a brilliantly talented actor and a generous human being who has left us far too soon,” she said. “Your excellence, your artistry will endure. We love you.”

John Oliver also paid tribute to comedian Norm Macdonald…who died just last week.

During the win  for Best Variety Series, Talk Show, Oliver said  “there was no one funnier in late-night comedy than Norm Macdonald.” 

Female directors hit a milestone Sunday night, as “The Crown’s” Jessica Hobbs and “Hacks'” Lucia Aniello won for outstanding directing for a drama series and a comedy series.

Yayyyy for the Ladies!!!

This is the first time that women have swept both directing categories in the same year.

The Governor’s Award went to the phenomenal Debbie Allen!

Debbie made a heartfelt speech expressing her gratitude for the honor! She finished after she said all that she wanted to say.. telling time keepers to turn that clock ⏰ off!

“The Queen’s Gambit,”

“The Crown” “Ted Lasso” and “Mare of Easttown,” took the highest Honors…

In fact… “The Crown” 👑 swept the drama acting awards…

This royal favorite brought home seven wins…the most of any show.

I must say.. this was not a huge surprise… because this Netflix show is extremely well done… It also happens to be one of my favorite shows… 🙌🏽 👑 🙌🏽
I’ve watched it consistently from the very beginning! Even when new actors take on the same characters… it never diminishes the “QUALITY” of the show… It only gets better.. and better! I can’t wait for this show to return!!!


🙋🏽‍♀️A few other personal notes..📝 from me..

Love craft Country was one of the most unique dramas on the tube. This HBO show was like nothing I’ve -ever-seen on television… truly one of the BEST new shows!!!! I was glad to see this show nominated, but it would have been nice to see this incredible production headed by Misha Green get more recognition, and get picked up for another season..
But this was the last hurrah…

After premiering to positive reviews and solid ratings last August, HBO opted not to renew Misha Green’s horror drama, which was originally intended as a limited series.

Fortunately, Courtney B. Vance did get recognized for his guest performance in the dramatic show.. during the creative Emmys..

I also want to congratulate another dramatic series.. that didn’t win..
“The Underground,” by Barry Jenkins…which was also outstanding!!! This Amazon Prime Series received 7 nominations.

And….. Bridgerton… ((sigh:))

That show was such a ✨delight!!!!✨Sooooo GOOD!!! Bridgerton got 12 nominations, and only 1 Emmy awarded….

At least the show had already won for Outstanding Period and/or Character Hairstyling

A well deserved honor… I might add… but… I still think all the shows I have mentioned deserved 👉🏻👉👉🏽👉🏿 BETTER!!!!

Needless to say I was also disappointed… I also was sorry not to see more actors of color win….

Well………….

BTW… 👉🏼 If you HAVE not seen any of these shows I’ve mentioned … I suggest you set aside a day to Binge Watch!!!! 👀

It’s totally WORTH IT!!! 👍🏽

Yeah…..I’ll just do a happy dance 💃🏻 about all these shows getting better marketing and publicity campaigns … (which has paid off..), with loyal followers…. and a LOT of buzz from influencers, and ATTENTION on social media.

stepping off soapbox… and dropping the mic! 🎤

Saturday Night Live has been one of my favorites for YEARS… (Congratulations to them for their win! 🏆), but I also want to give a shout out to “A Black Lady Sketch Show.” This sketch comedy show is “Hi-Larious!!!!” Bravo to the editing team, who did win during the creative Emmys..

And finally… Can we get a round of applause for “Blackish!!!” 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

It’s the last season for this awesome family comedy on ABC…It would have been great to see them ride off into the sunset with a few trophies… but it’s all good!! The show had a loyal following, and a great run….and lots of memorable episodes…

Now that I’ve had my say…

Kool and the Gang bring LIFE & SOUL back to Hollywood ⭐️ Bowl !!!!

The Hollywood Bowl is back!!! Popular Soul-funk legends Kool & the Gang… performed to capacity crowds on Saturday, July 3rd, and on the 4th 🇺🇸 of July!

I was thrilled to attend the show on the 4th🇺🇸… I had the BEST time… in a really long time!!!

Nestled right below the Hollywood sign, The famous Hollywood Bowl has been mostly dark.. since COVID-19.

A few mini-concerts were held to honor front line healthcare workers, and first responders… a few weeks earlier…

Before the pandemic, the Hollywood Bowl had never called off an entire season in nearly a century… but no more worries Concert Fans, the venue is back..with a full slate of performers, and musical acts.

See what’s coming up at http://www.HollywoodBowl.com

The “July 4th Fireworks Spectacular” kicked off… with Thomas Wilkins and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra performing patriotic hits.

Robert “Kool” Bell, one of the founders of the group opened by saying: “Hey, hey, hey, COVID go away,, “’cause we want to play.”

The crowd, obviously excited to be back together in the venue heartily cheered in agreement. People were also thrilled to learn that three of the original members of Kool and the Gang were performing.

What a triumph for this legendary group to keep on keeping on…since the late 60’s!

The crowd cheered, and enthusiastically applauded when ALL branches of the US Armed Forces were recognized… with their familiar theme/ fight songs.

Members of the military past, and present… stood proudly with their families to be recognized.

Front line healthcare workers, and first responders were also recognized.

The sold-out crowds got down both nights with all the popular favorites: “JungleBoogie,” “Get Down On it,,” “Fresh,” “Joanna,”and of course “Celebrate Good times come on!!!”

I can tell you first hand… sold out crowds did exactly that! People came prepared with everything from snacks, to full course dinners… desserts included!

This was the right place, and right time… to start summertime concerts on a high note… EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!

The Fireworks ended the extravaganza… with a burst of color, and excitement! It was a perfect evening!!!

It’s Oscar Time! Academy Awards, 2021 edition 💫

The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, honored the best films of 2020 and early 2021.

This star ⭐️ studded ceremony was scaled down this year, and held at Union Station 🚊 in downtown Los Angeles.

This is where key scenes for major motion pictures have been filmed… for decades.

The historic train station, built in 1939, is also known for its beautiful architecture.

A vibrant ceiling painting in Union Station’s entry vestibule was just discovered in 2017.

It was spruced up…as part of an eight-year restoration.. just in time for #Oscars2021

What a sight to see! It was amazing how the train 🚊 station was transformed into a very stylish show set… and multiple patios for interviews.

Commuters continued to travel on trains… throughout the entire broadcast on ABC.

The audience was much smaller than usual, but the show did go on!

It was absolutely wonderful to see stars dressed impeccably for Hollywood’s Big Night!

With the Pandemic still a major concern, attendees were socially distanced, and the audience prompted to put Masks 😷 on during commercial breaks.

Once again this year, there was no show host. The energy level was still high, and the show flowed smoothly.

The red carpet was sizzling hot 🔥 with sensational fashions… There were pre shows covering arrivals to the grand event, and LIVE interviews with nominated actors, and Oscar presenters.

Oscars 2020 was a GAME CHANGER…. filled with surprises to score more support… from younger viewers!

The 92nd Academy Awardsceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best  films of 2019.

The Show, was broadcast Sunday, February 9, 2020.. LIVE on ABC.

The event was held in the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. (Los Angeles, California.)

Oscars2020  was different from any Previous Academy Awards broadcast that I’ve ever seen! 
At first, I thought the highly acclaimed event was getting a little TOO CASUAL!!! I’ve always appreciated the formal, 
and dignified tone of this prestigious event.
The OSCARS is one of the very few remaining events in the world 🌎 that is fabulous and formal!
The women are glamorous in the finest gowns you’ll ever see…and make a grand entrance on the red carpet… we’re talking Traditional Hollywood GLAMOUR! #HoorayForHollywood! ⭐️ 

The men attending the Oscars always look handsome, and well groomed in designer tuxedos…
I watched…. 👀 
I listened 👂🏽 ….
They had a DJ….. to set the tone for the audience when guests were coming inside the Dolby theatre…. really???
( DJ Questlove) … from the roots was revealed to viewers by Ryan Seacrest… moments before the show started.
I said to myself is this the Grammy’s??? 🤔,
Wait a minute……. it sure seems like the Tony’s…. or… kinda MTV ish….
Rap music 🎶 and all…
 LOL! 😆
I watched a few surprised faces in the audience… 
Janelle Mona’e started things off with a BLAST!!!
In a very spirited performance….. she referenced films 🎞 that weren’t nominated, and the lack of diversity… and snubbed female directors this year…

Monae said: “We celebrate all the women who directed phenomenal films,” said the performer.

…..but with everything happening…people were wide awake… jumping up… with big applause… 
👏🏽👏🏼👏👏🏼 👏🏿👏🏻👏🏼👏🏽
Ohhh-Kay! If the lively musical acts, DJ and rap music 🎼 🎶 is enticing a younger audience… alrighty then! 
I’m all about diversity…. creativity…. and a wide variety of lively and upbeat performances… but hey…let’s keep it classy, stylish and formal…… “K”
Holla if ya hear me
🗣Ok!!!!!!!!!! 👍🏽👍🏽
Tradition in Hollywood 🎬
is still
GOLDEN! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🙌🏽✨

It’s always nice to have fresh and innovative ideas…
I just hope it doesn’t veer to far off the traditional path.. 
With everyone sitting up at full attention… It turned out to be quite the night indeed!!!! ( Even without a designated host..)
It seemed like Chris Rock and Steve Martin were kinda-like hosts this year…
They’ve both served as Oscars hosts in previous years… and for the record… they were pretty funny!
Cutting edge humor… straight…. no chaser.
All these years later… they’ve still got it! ✨zing!✨
Let’s get straight to the HIGHLIGHTS:

#ParasiteMovie won best picture; Bong Joon-ho wins best director for “Parasite”;
-PLUS- “Parasite” wins best international feature; Bong and Han Jin-won win best original screenplay for “Parasite”

This was the second Oscar win, (and fourth nomination) for Zellweger, who also won best supporting actress for “Cold Mountain.”

Laura Dern wins best supporting actress for “Marriage Story.”

Joaquin Phoenix wins best actor for “Joker”


In an emotional speech,
Phoenix urges everyone to strive for unity!
Phoenix said that he had been a “scoundrel” in his life, and expressed gratitude to people in the room who had given him a second chance. The actor also urged everyone to consider giving others second chances as well.

Brad Pitt won best supporting actor for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”

A royal 👑 return to a life of Splendor! Downton Abbey is BACK on the BIG SCREEN! 🎩🎻🎬s


It’s a major motion picture event!

Quite frankly… I’ve been counting down the days!!!

Finally…this historic drama returns with more intriguing story lines…


We’re getting back on track… in a most regal way! 👑
The Crawley family get quite a surprise! King George V and Queen Mary have invited themselves to stay at their country side estate..for one night during their royal tour of Yorkshire, a county in the north of England. 

A GRAND EVENT like this one.. is no big deal for the Crawleys!

The dutiful servants downstairs… are the ones who must get everything in order. 

And if you remember from the television show… EVERYTHING must be perfect!

The servants take great pride in everything they do! So many different personalities.. so many issues… so little time!

How this all turns out is going to be genius! The writing is superb.

I love period productions and history!

Oh! By the way…I’ve got a pretty amazing tie in… I have a feature in my blog: Sparkle E on the scene… about the historic ship 🚢 named in honor of Queen 👑 Mary. (A featured star in this film… Make sure you check it out!!!)

You know what?? I take great pride in the fact that I turned a LOT of people onto this show. I found it absolutely FASCINATING!!!

Ahem! I’ll also take credit… as one of the devoted fans who urged the creator/ producer Julian Fellowes… to please, please, please give us a movie! 🎥 

After years of watching this masterpiece classic television series…you truly care about these characters. You feel everything they experience… you go along life’s complex journey with them.

Now… I have to say.. there have been some characters that I didn’t care so much about… but slowly but surely I got to have a better understanding of their back stories, or particular issues. … I learned to like them… or in the very least tolerate them. LOL!

Some stayed dark, and others lightened up brilliantly!

Bravo to the creator, and writers… ONE MORE TIME!!

YES ‼️👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 💯 💯💯💯

There have been characters… I cherished watching develop and mature over the years…

How about all the mysteries, sorrows, scandals, joy, pain, tragedies, triumphs, and love stories????

My, My, My! There’s been a lot to unpack at this fine estate over the years.

So it’s only fitting and proper that we get to see..the continuing saga of the Crawley family and the servants working for them in the early 20th century… English countryside. 

 “Where are they now?” What has happened to all those dear characters always tugging on our emotions and heartstrings???

Well now… I understand this film 🎞 takes up EXACTLY from where the story was left off…after the last series…and its Christmas Special which aired in 2015.

It is now 1927, two years after the Christmas Special episode which marked the end of the last series.

Mary and Tom (played by Michelle Dockery and Allen Leech ) are still in charge of the running of the estate. 

Lady Mary is still married to Henry (played by Matthew Goode) but he is largely absent from the film, away on some business in the U.S. 

I was so thrilled to meet the wonderful actress, Michelle Dockery…. who plays the role of Lady Mary. It was quite a pleasure!

I tld her… she’s always been one of my favorite characters… and she’s done a splendid job portraying this very interesting woman.

Sophisticated… charming… and ALWAYS stylish!

Props to you M’Lady!

Through it all… the eldest of the Crawley sister’s always been the most beautiful, and proud, ( some may call this fair lady arrogant… but you have to follow her closely, and understand the time period, her upbringing, and high society… to “get her.” 

Anyway, Lady Mary has always been “The One” most admired by many distinguished gentlemen, and of course suitors in her hey day. 

And heyyyy!!! Lady Mary had some tight situations… over the years..

oooo-weee! 🤫🤭😬

but now.. we’ll truly see how much she has matured, and just how fortunate she’s been in her life of privilege. 🤗


The middle Crawley sister… the one we rooted for the most, the who experienced sooo many setbacks, and unfortunate situations married extremely well!

Edith Crawley was the one to get the highest standing in life… and it was awesome! I ‘ve always cared a lot for this character too… Everyone had pretty much given up on her… and she surprised them all!! The morale of her sorted story is … in the words of Winston Churchill…. never, never, never give up! 🙌🏽🙌🏽♥️🙌🏽🙌🏽

Nobody saw it coming…

but I was so excited to see things FINALLY work out for this woman!!

When the saga continues… Edith, is still married to Bertie Pelham, the Marquess of Hexham, but is bored living in her castle in Northumberland and hosting dinners. 


She returns to Downton on invitation from her mother (Elizabeth McGovern) to attend the Royal visit. 

Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham (played splendidly by Maggie Smith), also known as “Grand Ma Ma), is still bickering with Isobel (Penelope Wilton, marvelously played!)

Maggie Smith, an 84-year-old Oscar winner, joins other series regulars including Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley), Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley), Elizabeth McGovern (Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham), Allen Leech (Tom Branson), Matthew Goode (Henry Talbot), Joanne Froggatt (Anna Bates), Brendan Coyle (Mr. Bates), Robert James-Collier (Mr. Barrow), Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore), Sophie McShera (Daisy Mason), Phyllis Logan (Mrs. Hughes), Raquel Cassidy (Miss Baxter) and Michael C. Fox (Andy).

All I have to say now is…. Another holiday themed Downton film… or just a little special or something later would be GREAT !👍🏽👍🏽

It’s always cool to catch up with new developments with our favorite characters… watch their families expand…and witness them continue to grow and develop.. as respectable human beings.

Faithful fans like me have witnessed these characters come a LONG way!

I really missed them…

Hmmmm….. 🤔

Can you say spin-off ⁉️

🙋🏽‍♀️ I can! I can! (( LOL!))

Jillian Fellowes heard me the first time…. 😆 Mr Fellowes… and Focus Features… Can you hear me now??? 😁

After this movie 🎥 I’m sure a chorus of other voices will chime in with me….

🎼 🎶 Singing praisesand crooning for an Encore‼️

It’s a ROARING Success‼️ The 2019 version of LION KING is keeping it REAL… in every possible way.

As expected…

The Lion 🦁 King was been a HUGE BLOCKBUSTER HIT!

In its first few days… the fantasy drama…earned more than half a BILLION DOLLARS 💵💵💵💵 around the world!!! 🌎

And it’s just the beginning!

The longtime popular cartoon…and stage play..

has made the transformation to photorealistic computer-generated imagery… in 2019.

Chills will run through you… when you hear

Lebo M.’s Zulu chant hits and the sun ☀️ rises over the Pride Lands..

Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny on the plains of Africa. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival.

Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is soon ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile.

Now, with help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba must figure out how to grow up…take back control of his kingdomand reclaim the throne that stolen from him…and his father by his treacherous uncle Scar.

The film is written by Jeff Nathanson, and produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

This remake of Disney’s 1994 animated film is directed by Jon Favreau.

The LION 🦁 KING voice talents include:

Donald Glover ⭐️

James Earl Jones ⭐️ Beyoncé Knowles Carter⭐️ Seth Rogen⭐️

Chiwetel Ejiofor⭐️

Alfre Woodard⭐️

Billy Eichner⭐️

John Kani⭐️

John Oliver⭐️

Keegan Michael Key⭐️ Florence Kasumba⭐️

Eric Andre⭐️

JD McCrary⭐️ (young Simba)

and Shahadi Wright Joseph⭐️ (young Nala)

Not only does Beyoncé star in the film as Nala…

The Triple threat, super star ⭐️ has created songs for the LION KING soundtrack.

Beyoncé dropped the album “The Lion King, The Gift” on the same day as the opening of “The Lion King.” “Mood 4 Eva,” her collaboration with “The Lion King” co-star Glover and her husband Jay-Z, has the most streams on Spotify for “The Gift.” Next is “Brown Skin Girl,” which features Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy. Third is “Spirit,” an original song in the remake.

“Bigger” and “Spirit” also feature two gorgeous new videos as well…

It’s being called a “Love letter to Africa.”

Beyoncé said:

“It’s the beauty of color, the beauty of melanin, the beauty of tradition.”

Fans… 🙋🏽‍♀️ including myself.. 😃 have been shown great support for both videos — which are absolutely stunning!

The videos also feature the stars cute… look alike daughter… “Miss Blue Ivy.”

I’m thrilled to see The Lion King attract a new generation of loyal fans!

I’ve loved every aspect of this production from day one! Stay on the throne Lion King! 👑

We respectfully bow to your global 🌎 success… and power at the Box Office.

The Walt Disney Kingdom rules!

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! ❤️
#DontMissThis! #Fierce! 🔥 #Fabulous! 💋 and #Fun! 🙌🏽
