Way to GO… Sandra Oh‼️

👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏👏👏
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…😆

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.

Director Peter Farrelly accepted the prize 

“Green Book” centers on Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class African-American pianist who embarked on a concert tour of the Deep South in 1962 along with his driver and bodyguard Tony Lip (played by Mortensen).
And then… another key moment…

Olivia Colman Calls Out Her Favourite “Bitches” 😆 Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz… during her Golden Globes Victory!

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..

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.

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!

Another special feature of this film.. is it sparks your desire to TRAVEL! The glamorous depiction of Singapore will definitely give tourism a boost! I’m certainly ready for a scenic adventure! ✈️ 👍🏽🎏🎎

“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!

—>Keep Up! 😉<—

While you’re feeling all “giddy” with light hearted laughter… These shows GO DEEP into politics… & REAL LIFE issues…

‘Roseanne’ on abc is back! The rebooted sitcom… reflects the current day Conner family….surprising changes… controversial issues…

economic struggles…

and all…

Yep, They’re on a roll folks… “Roseanne” premiered to HUGE ratings.

The show kicks off… focusing on a squabble between Roseanne and her sister Jackie.

Roseanne is down with TRUMP on the show…

( no matter what…)while her sister Jackie… (Laurie Metcalf) defends her own liberalism.

Jackie is horrified about her sisters political position.

She is visibly upset about Hilliary not leading America…

Smart… real smart… The new version of this show opens… with the very issue that split LOTS of American families in half…in REAL LIFE!

The sisters.. who used to always be together through thick & thin had not seen each other… or spoken in a really long time.

“Roseanne” deals with major issues…that clearly demonstrate hardships… and problems with working class… and low income people!

PAY ATTENTION FOLKS!!!

We’re talking…class struggles, health care, unemployment, gender identity, family separation while loved ones serve abroad with armed forces… and a whole lot of other issues…with blended families.

Roseanne & Dan have got grand kids now… a teenage girl going through all the usual mood swings, and teen drama… and a gender-fluid grandson… who loves bright colors.. and wearing a skirt or dress from time to time… he’s happy with life… and loves his clothing choices…

His mother, (Darlene, played by Sara Gilbert… says he’s just exploring right now…

His grandpa ( Dan, played by John Goodman helps him explore edgier things.. into his glitter loving life… like…a pocket knife… basketball 🏀 and other stuff like that.

Another BIG REVEAL is that Darlene, ( Sara Gilbert), has lost her job… and is back in the Connor home… with her kids…

Becky’s there too… and shocked the family with a bold plan… to earn money to pay for mounting bills.. and hopefully get a place of her own.

D.J’s back from serving in the military, and cares for his little girl 👧🏽… a bubbly African-American girl… whose face lights up… when she sees

“Grandma Rose..” (the loving nickname she calls the matriarch of the Connor family.)

Roseanne Conner… is STILL the opinionated, brash but lovable matriarch of the blue-collar family.

The chemistry with all the actors is still as great as I remember. It feels genuine with their interactions…

The show paints a very realistic portrait … of exactly how you could imagine the family turning out… in these days and times…

I watched it… nodding my head up and down… remembering the personalities of the characters I watched all those years…

Yep, yep… It’s all working together… It all makes sense… “I get it!”

Roseanne has always been a very smart comic & producer. She’s clever… calculating and pretty slick!

She knows how to push the envelope.

She knows -exactly- what to do to grab America’s attention…..

and RUN WITH IT!

She never plays it safe… she’s always been cutting edge… never afraid to take risks. Her subject matter sparks interest.. and dialogue… The perfect equation for RATINGS SUCCESS!

Roseanne has gone on record basically saying… people can always agree to disagree…

( and….there-eeee ya go!) It’s all on with the show… and you betcha people are gonna keep watching to see what hot ♨️button 🕹issues..the Connor family is going to be dealing with next.

Oh! and by the way… the show has ALREADY been renewed for a second season.

“Roseanne” airs on Tuesday’s on ABC 8/7c

Will & Grace.. is another successful re-boot. This show… (which was also one of my favorites…) has been reinvented for current political times…with anti-Trump commentary from time to time….

The Will & Grace revival reunites original stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes.

In addition to winning 16 Emmys, (including Outstanding Comedy Series in 2000), “Will and Grace” is credited with paving the way for LGBT characters on TV, featuring the first openly gay lead characters on a primetime network series.

Ultimately… the comedy is a show about TRUE friendship between the four main characters… wowza! They’ve had some hilarious adventures over the years! Sure… there’s political stuff… and other important issues in the world… as one of the stars of the show was quoted as saying. “It’s a little bit of everything!”

Everything that results in BIG ratings… and a devoted audience….(check!)

**** Update! ****

NBC has now ordered an 18-episode third season for fall 2019. This will be the multi-camera comedy’s 11th season overall…including its original eight-season run on NBC.

And we can always count on “Blackish” (also on ABC)

for a great lessons on racial tolerance… black history… and other issues… from the African American perspective…

“Blackish” is now in it’s fourth successful season. The popular comedy stars ⭐️Anthony Anderson…as the father of the family,(Dre)and ⭐️ Tracee Ellis Ross… as the mother

( Rainbow). The show also stars Marcus Scribner as Andre (“Junior”) Johnson Jr. , Miles Brown as Jack Johnson, Marsai Martin as Diane Johnson, Peter MacKenzie as Leslie Stevens, Deon Cole, as Charlie Telphy, Jennifer Lewis as Ruby Johnson, and Laurence Fishburne as Earl “Pop’s” Johnson

Can I just say how proud I am of this show! 👍🏽 I can always get a great laugh… and satisfaction in my soul… that someone… somewhere… just had an eye 👁 opening “Ah-ha” moment… and learned something TRUE… that they wouldn’t know otherwise…

🗣***Shout out*** to ALL shows that not only ENTERTAIN…but educate… and motivate different races… cultures…and socio-economic circles..to have a better understanding of each other…

This show goes deep! The Producers aren’t afraid to take on touchy subjects either…

In the end… I always take a deep breath… and go… “yeah, that was good dd

The single camera sitcom centers on an upper middle class African-American family… and life in the suburbs.

(Dre), struggles with finding his cultural identity… raising his kids in a white neighborhood.

“Blackish” airs on ABC,

Tuesday’s 9/8 c

This AWARD WINNING show… is the BRILLIANT creation of show runner Kenya Barris… An alumnus 👨🏽‍🎓 of Clark-Atlanta University!!!

“Blackish” has done so well… that the Johnson family’s eldest daughter has left to nest to star ⭐️ in her very own spin-off…

New college kid “Zoey” ( played by Yara Shahidi), is taking her first steps into the real world…🌍 in college.

“Grown-ish” explores the modern day transition into adulthood… and all the other things…that come along with the “rites of passage..into womanhood.”

“Grownish” airs on Wednesday’s 7/8 Central on Freeform

🖤🖤🖤GO BLACK PANTHER..GO!!! 🐾🐾🖤🖤

The film 🎥 developed from a screenplay by Coogler…and Joe Robert Cole…

The outstanding cinematography was handled by Rachel Morrison..

Coogler is getting BIG TIME notoriety after this project… but this guy is already a true pro!

He’s taken the helm of several other movies… including Fruitvale Station, and Creed….

Uh-huh… We know…

A young man… doing it… and doing it… and doing it RIGHT!!!

And what about that incredible cast…. They were superb!!!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Black Panther 🐾 stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther, with Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Einston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis

“Black Panther” is a 2018 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character…

Can we talk fashion now ?

The costume designs in the movie… are stunning!!!

Wakandans honor their ancestors with their clothing…as well as maintain social order.

Black Panther’s costume designer, Ruth Carter,

said she kept four words on her vision board as she designed: Beautiful! Positive! Forward! Colorful!

Her vision for Wakandan dress draws from traditional and contemporary African fashion..

Carter’s team of buyers & designers and buyers… went searching EVERYWHERE for the right fashion looks…

Costumes were created from hand-dyeing, and beading techniques of the Tuareg, Zulu, Maasai, Himba, and Dinka…

They were inspired by designers around the world… and selected the FINEST ideas for robes, headdresses….

and unique jewelry pieces…

Carter says she wanted to show the world the BEAUTY of tribal dress… in a very modern style…

By the way… Ruth Carter has had 30 years of movie experience…and two Oscar nominations! Just to name a few more of her major projects…

Carter also worked on Spike Lee’s Malcolm X…School Daze…and Amistad….

But wait…. there’s more…

She also created fashion for John Singleton’s Rosewood…Ava DuVernay’s Selma, and the 2016 TV series “Roots.”

While we’re talking fashion… Can I just say people were SHARP coming to see this movie!

Vivid African patterns… and traditional clothes were quite impressive to see…

#ItWasABeautifulThing!🙌🏽🙌🏻🙌🏽🙌🙌🏿🙌🏽

I saw faces of ALL races packing out theaters!!!

I saw buses and limousines arrive… Carpools of families & friends… all dressed to impress…

There were sign-in tables for professional organizations and groups to pick up tickets… and keepsake items to remember this event…

Quite frankly…. I’ve NEVER seen anything “this” big-of-a-deal at the movies……… EVER!!!!

I kept hearing the most glorious words: Sold out… Sold out… 😐 sorry… we’re sold out!

Now… 👉🏽Back to the movie 🎥 plot…

“T’Challa” returns home as king of WAKANDA…but finds his sovereignty challenged by a long-time adversary…

There’s a MAJOR conflict…with MAJOR consequences… and CHAOS!!! 👀

The film was produced by Marvel Studios… and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures….

If you haven’t seen the movie yet…Make sure you stay in your seat..💺 through ALL of the credits…

**** ALL of THEM!!!*** Don’t leave until the screen goes black… and the house lights come on…

I just don’t want you to miss some key things… you might want to know for later! 😉

I certainly enjoyed this film… and I know you will too… This movie… is a GAME CHANGER!!!! And for that… I say:

Yeah Baby! Yeah!!!! 👊🏽ItsAboutTime‼️🕰
