Yes, I would love to see the press give the same banal treatment to the men on the Oscar red carpet and at all the other award shows.  Actually it would be hilarious.  Just reading some of the comments from the men at the BAFTAS it does put them on the spot.

Really I wish that actresses would just stop showcasing their gowns so much and direct the conversation to what movie they are representing.   It's the questions that get asked of everyone who  walks the red carpet that are so embarrassing.  I cringe sometimes when watching these shows.  We could easily come up with better questions that the press does.


Watching the BAFTA's red carpet was more interesting, as each one was asked 
many things about their particular film.

It was so refreshing after the GGlobes. But then, the BAFTAs has always been about honouring film, not fashion, and its remit was summed up perfectly and brilliantly in Mike Leigh's fellowship award and acceptance speech.

Well, the Oscars and GGs could  learn a thing or two from the BAFTAS which seems to be focused more on the films, not the stars and fashion as much.  Watching the run up to our award shows is liking watching Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight.  Just seems to dumb down the stature of these events.

the front of the house, making a lemon merengue pie
and watching snow falling very rapidly.
I heard a loud noise above, then I saw a Royal Airforce
Helicopter fly very low across my house and the one opposite. It landed on the sports field at the back of that house. 
Next thing I heard was a man calling "hello....hello"
from the orchard next to my house. I opened the kitchen door to see a gorgeous looking pilate the other side of the Hawthorn hedge. 
He asked if I had a phone he could use, this was in the 60's long before mobiles ! So he scrambled over the hedge and came to phone his base.
I spent a pleasant hour or so over a cup of tea chatting with him in the kitchen, while he waited for a vehicle to pick him and his co pilate up. Apparently at that time the rotors on the chopper froze up in cold weather, hence the emergency landing.
My lemon merengue pie never got made !
An armed guard was posted with the helicopter and it was the coldest night we'd had.

So PP, invite them in for a hot drink !  lol!

PigPen - Hope your pantry is well stocked and there's plenty of wood on the woodpile. Very Happy We're waiting on more snow, and though it won't be as bad as where you are, it's cold enough that any snow that falls will probably freeze over and still be on the ground in May! Stay safe and warm! I'm going to hibernate until it all goes away!

79.5 inches of snow? Holy Fuck!

It's about 2 p.m. in Los Angeles and it's 85 degrees (about 30 Celsius).  I've got the air conditioner on!

Ok you heard he got married yesterday - right?  Cumberbitches are all crying in their ale tonight.

Now here's a ditty from Enty Lawyer.  Good god that man had better get a DNA test as soon as that baby is born!

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2015/02/blind-item-1-909.html

EVERYONE is saying Cumberbatch!

So, you have a boyfriend that is going through financial problems and having to hide money in various shell companies. You just found out you are pregnant. Your income is not going to get you through. You get a call from an old friend who used to help you make connections that a foreign born A list actor is looking for some company and you would be perfect. You see your chance. You seduce him the first night so the pregnancy story will work. A month later you tell him you are pregnant. He now is not only giving you money which you funnel to your boyfriend, but the actor even marries you because he is a standup guy who won’t leave his pregnant girlfriend single.

It looks like a new interview as the DM has an article about it. It says Kimmel apologises for interrupting Cumberbatches honeymoon and tries to recreate a honeymoon atmosphere!

That's the official amt from the weather bureau. Measurement taken at Logan airport.  Snowing right now.  More later this week.  Heaven help us.  Gotta go... more shoveling.

Thanks DonnaMarie and Hebe for the information. Thumbs up!

I think Eddie will beat Benedict as at the BAFTAS,
and he seems to expect that too. But it's good for 
our Brits to be nominated and recognised at all the awards this year.


PS.....you be careful PP with all that shovelling.

On another note, am I the only who still finds it weird that George is married?  I think it's just hit me today that from now on, we're going to get so many 'George and Amal' articles.

I think it went back to exactly one year ago-when he took her to the White House screening of MM...that's when we started a serious talk about their relationship for the first time.(Hadn't registered for myself but had been observing as a visitor)

When I was out this afternoon I went into Marks and Spencers cafe for a cuppa. I asked for a pot of Earl Grey and the man serving asked how I liked my tea because 'we serve fifty shades of Earl Grey here!'

Well, I ordered it reasonably strong but all I got was I teabag in a pot of hot water. A bit of a disappointment really. I suppose I can't expect S&M at M&S!

Shout-out to Theminis and Sparkie - Just read about the storms hitting Australia. Hoping you and yours are nowhere near the devastation and are safe. If you can, log on and let us all know that you're safe. I love you

I spoke to theminis last night my time - afternoon her time.  No storms at the time. I may call her tonight to check on her.

Unless her house blew away, she's doing fine - she said she was having some computer issues so that and all the stuff going on at home with kids going back to school etc. (it's the start of Autumn there now) she's busy, busy, busy.

Will let her know you were asking how she's doing!
