Goodbye Sybil



i have avoided writing anything about season 3 of 'downton abbey' so as not to spoil anything for anybody who did not know about the 2 deaths that occurred. my moratorium is up. the ever lovely jessica brown findlay opted to leave the show when her contract was up. that left the rest of us to deal with the death of lady sybil. good for her: lousy for us. i loved ms findlay in this series and will miss her character as well as the actress. i wish jessica all the luck in her career and hope to see here soon on the big and small screen.

Golden Globes Tonight on CBS


what's dumb is that the competing networks are showing original programing of  'the good wife', 'revenge', 'once upon a time' and 'downton abbey'. there was a time when the networks would not compete with award shows. however, we now have dvr's and 'on demand' to play catch up.

i'm not making any guesses here although i do harbor hopes. don't we all? julianna margulies, mandy patinkin, ben affleck, 'argo', 'downton abbey', sally field and 'les miserables' are on my wish list.

Two 'Downton Abbey' TV Spots from across the Pond

Emmy Nomination Talk


so let's start off by saying ''uma thurmam what the frack". she was awful in 'smash'. the worst. she sucked as she generally does. and yet she gets a guest nomination over carrie preston in 'the good wife'. shame shame shame.

now that i got that off my chest i'll move on. it was not an otherwise bad call except for the major networks who received not a single nom for best drama series. the only hopeful, 'the good wife', was shut out shamefully. cable dominated. but that is not to say the networks did not have worthy fare like 'the good wife', 'once upon a time' and 'revenge'.

'madmen' and 'american horror story' reigned supreme with the most noms followed by 'downton abbey'. i am thrilled with all the acting nods given to 'downton' especially michelle dockery. but there was not a single throw away in their acting noms so bravo to them all. but where is dan crawley?

the best actress drama category is the most competitive. michelle, julianna magulies and claire danes with kathy bates along for the ride. they are all deserving. i love julianna but she won last year. i want michelle to win. claire will get it.

drama series is a damn good list too. i want 'downton' but my second choice 'homeland' has the edge. we'll see. i am so over 'madmen'. i just don't get the fawning. enough already. 'breaking bad' may be worthy but i gave up on it. enough of the cooking meth already. and don't get me started  on the gratuitous violence. it was once brilliant. it is now formular. don't send hate mail. i don't read it.

josh charles ignored for 'the good wife'? yes he was. i am thrilled for jason ritter, jean smart, jessica lange, sarah paulson and connie britton. all worthy this year. most years actually.
but alas there was no love for 'renvenge' or 'once upon a time'.
 but uma thurman? really???


if they are pictured above i am thrilled they got a nod. they can't all win but their contributions this year are undeniable and as we see respected.
