    Dear Friends…So here we are again.  We’ll dish, we’ll nosh, we have a bit of bubbly–or in my case, coffee intravenously.

    The red-carpet coverage will begin around 6:30.  That’s always the best part, anyway.  I’m only bummed out that I’ll miss “Downton Abbey.” (I don’t have DVR)   Fascinated to see just  how much more miserable and whiny Edith can get.  I know most people dislike ice-cold Lady Mary, but  I prefer her to her sister, Miss Woe Is Me.

    We’ll be chatting later!

    Love,

    MR.W

    P.S.  If you have interest, before the Oscars you can still go back and comment on the “Sniper” trial post.  I know it’s not fun, but…we have no expectation of a good time watching three hours of endless self-congratulation, either.

    I am not going to watch. I will be watching Columbo on MeTVnetwork.

    3:43 pm | February 22, 2015
  • Daniel Sugar

    Rho,
    My two favorite “Columbo” moments are:
    1) When Peter Falk (while investigating) falls/rolls down a steep hill.
    2) When a young detective gives (a very bored but patient and polite) Peter Falk a long, involved (incorrect) analysis of a murder case and Falk then says, quickly, dismissively, “That’s nice, the magician did it.”
    Both those moments made me laugh so hard I almost fell off the couch. He was great!

    E! is confusing because they are discussing fashion and showing stars from the GGs and the SAG awards.  Kelly Osborne and her fat queen sidekick are most annoying.

    Ryan Seacrest–please shave. If there’s a problem with your jawline, plastic surgery is available.

    Faith Hill–lovely, but apparently believes after a woman passes a certain age, she has to chop her hair off.  Hubby Tim looks better wearing much less.

    Dakota Johnson–something so dowdy about her.

    Margo Robbie…?  Australian model. Will be the Jane in the coming “Tarzan.”  So slouchy and model-ly.

    Ethan Hawke attempting to explain “Boyhood” to Ryan Seacrest.   Too complex for RS.    Hawke looks good.

    Adam Levine.  Take off that tux and get rid of those tats. Okay–we’ll just turn out the lights. (That’ll be better for him, anyway.)

    Just caught a glimpse of Lupita,  regally carrying an umbrella.

    Miles Teller–nice.  So young and fresh.  

    OMG–just went downstairs to have a bite, B. has CNN on.  Don Lemmon,asshole of the universe, is talking to Robert Duvall. Duvall clearly wants to talk up his wife’s upcoming movie.  Lemmon is having none it, and then goes on to SPOIL  Duvall’s film,  “The Judge.”  I mean, he told the entire plot and ending.  What a brainless fool.

    Julianne Moore, a lovely woman and a great actress, usually gets it wrong on the red carpet, but I like this Chanel she is wearing tonight.  I hope she wins.

    I love Benedict Cumberbatch, but I can’t embrace the white jacket.  Not even on him.

    The news is out.  Those were pearls on Lupita’s gown. 6,000 pearls.

      I’ve never been a fan of the white dinner jacket, I can’t with the clashing with the white shirt…  Yes – saw that additional detail in a photo of Lupita’s dress – really beautiful!

    Reese Witherspoon–eh, on the dress, but she is an impressive woman.  I hope she doesn’t win, however!  (wearing a backpack for two hours does not an Oscar deserve.)

    Robin Roberts–she says it’s an “honor” to stand there with Chris Kyle’s widow.  Why?

    Robin missed the opportunity to ask about that little issue concerning promises made about profits from the film.  Darn.

  • Hi all, pop over to Forming the Thread after midnight tonight – I have a guest author who has ranked his picks for the top 20 movies of 2014! 

    He’s a serious film viewer and critic, and if you’re on the fence about seeing a particular movie, his observations might give you an idea whether you would enjoy it or not.  He already had some notes on movies that should have been nominated for Oscars, but weren’t; and some that have well-deserved nominations. Tonight he’s watching to see how his picks will do for actually winning awards.

    He’s planning to send in a Friday article on Top 20 Performances of 2014, if all goes well.  A week of the movies!

    Honestly, ladies–I’m kind of agreeing.  This is dire indeed.  But I can’t strip to my underwear. 

    And I actually did manage to catch “Downton Abbey” (two TV’s going in my room.)  It was very entertaining.  Then I had to return to Oscar.

      Well the underwear thing has been done so you won’t have to. I’m impressed you can watch two shows at once. Did you mute the Oscars? I’ll watch Downton and Grantchester at 1am.

    I tuned in after Downton Abbey. It seems I didn’t miss much if the remainder was anything like the beginning. Robert successfully guessing Edith’s secret was better than the Oscars. The soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Shrimpie is pathetic and I hope Rose and Atticus will be happy in spite of her. So, when will Carson and Mrs. Hughes accept their feelings for one another and get married? You know it has to be coming.

    Oh my god I missed the fun! I thought it was the biggest bore except for the “Glory” presentation and of course Lady Gaga who is proving herself to be more than just a pop princess. John Travolta apparently decided to leer at the ladies this year. Last year he was leering at Benedict Cumberbatch. At least he kept his hands off Benedict Cumberbatch.

    The fashion show was boring as well. Maybe because Joan Rivers wasn’t on the red carpet asking “who are you wearing?” And shame on the Academy for not including her in the memorium. But they like to snub the people we love. Like Doris Day.

    As for Jennifer Lopez all I can see is that if she is going to continue to wear gowns cut to the navel she needs to get a “boob lift.” 

    Next year I will try to remember ad log on…

    BabySnooks,
    I was wondering where you were on Oscar night!
    So great to read both your posts today.
    Best From,

    Well once again we all wonder where our Mr. Wow is. I’ll give it a week and then book a flight to New York and then wander the streets of Hoboken calling out “Mr. Wow, Mr. Wow, where are you Mr. Wow?”  Or maybe just go up to a cop and tell them “I think I fell and hit my head because I can’t remember anything other than I live with a man named ________. Can you help me get home?” 

    Of course I would. I’ve done far worse. WHERE ARE YOU? WE MISS YOU!

    You too, Rho!

    This could simply be wishful thinking on my part…but did I just get a quick glimpse of you, Mr. W., during the tease for Liz’s “Hollywood Reporter” gig?  All sweater-y and cool-looking?

    May I recommend The Liz Smith/Hollywood Reporter interview to all the Wow-ettes? 
    It’s a fab interview. (I wish it were 800 pages – like a Harry Potter novel. Seriously, it’s like “The Warhol Diaries” – you can’t stop reading it.)

    Just looked at the Liz Smith video for Hollywood Reporter New York Issue and there is our Mr. Wow – love the sweater draped around his shoulders giving directions to the photographer and lighting crew. No wonder he isn’t here ‘dishing’ with us.

      I thought that was him!  Didn’t he look terrific?  All in-charge and suave!

    Now just got the actual Hollywood Reporter – New York Edition and Liz mentions ‘our Mr. Wow’. It is an interesting incite into her and why since she was fired has become a person with little money, few friends and relies on he best friends one of which is Mr. Wow.

    Fascinating article with Liz Smith. It would be a real treat to sit down and have a good natter with her. Mr. W looked so uber-cool. He’s another one I’d love to have a good natter with sometime.

    Where should I look?  I did not see Liz Smith’s article.

    Again another long absence from Mr. Wow – Wonder if he has gotten bored with us?

    Missing Mr Wow. I hope all is well and you are just busy.

    Take care and let the Wowettes hear from you some time soon.

    Do we have to storm Hoboken? Mr Wow has been gone for a long time.

    Well another month has passed and not a peep out of Mr. Wow – has he ‘ditched’ us permanently???? FRUSTRATING

    We are beginning to feel unloved. (insert pathetic sigh). We miss you.

      I’m still here–as Yvonne De Carlo sang it best in “Follies.”  Lots of work, busyness and the usual, tiresome angst about work.  I am healthy.  B. is healthy. Our union is the law of the land now, although I never take anything for granted and become smug. (Nothing more insufferable than a smug, intolerant liberal.)  

      I will be posting again soon.  I love you all. 

      Love,

      MrW

    Yes! Mr WOW is alive and well. Can’t wait for the next post. Have a wonderful week.

    During these fallow periods here, I always hope you are keeping an eye on a certain column in The New York Social Diary–or some other far-flung spots.  What’s on my mind, amusing me, irritating me, can often be found there.  And if I didn’t have that obligation, there would be more here.   But I am notoriously NOT a multi-tasker.

    Love, Mr. W.

    Oh, Mr. W., I’m pretty sure we all know and do that.  We just like feeling so special that you find the need to address us directly!  Rock on, you crazy diamond!

    Happiness is ‘word’s from Mr. Wow!! If any of you get bored in between his awesome posts, I have a suggestion – a tad partial I must admit. My husband decided to start a blog – it is totally different than Mr. Wow’s but is interesting – take a look if you feel like it

    Jack has meet some truly interesting people, been to usual places and lived like the crazy Virgo he is – if you look be sure to check out his first post under people – just an example of what he has seen and yes he is ‘old as dirt’ – lol
