I spoke with my good friend Gin-Gin this morning and he’s told me the ratings for this years TONY Awards came in with the worst numbers ever.
This could possibly be over-dramatization – he’s prone to that. I myself was to busy editing to sit and watch the entire broadcast and only caught brief snippets. Congrats again to winners Viola Davis and Scarlett!
But if those snippets were anything to go on, I might have to go on believing him. Sondheim is melodic but that song Catherine Zeta Jones’ sang, although beautiful, is a fucking downer!
Lord knows whenever I sing it I just cry up a storm. Those fucking clowns man… And who the hell wants to watch an award show to get all weepy?
I do think Matthew Morrisson’s rocking number was butch and all – his hair is always so damn perfect – but does Lea Michele really believe she can take on Streisand! Stop girl, please… You are no Streisand! And you are far from Epic!
There is no excuse for numbers lacking though. Sean Hayes is funny! That Spidey skit had me in stitches. I reckon I am easy – I still cackle over Will & Grace…
Well this post is about the men so men I am giving y’all.
Highlights on the testosterone front: The boys from Green Day, Mathew Modine, Morrison, Puss-n-Boot’s himself Antonio Banderas, hotness Ryan Reynolds, Constantine Maroulis, Ricky Martin, Will Smith, Daniel Radcliffe, David Alan Grier and Jonathan Groff!
Hows that for a round up!
The TONY’s are to NY what the OSCARS are to LA. Cept less Down low! No other show is gayer – don’t even try! If it’s gay, its found here. And to make sure the TV viewing audience were well informed of this fact, this years show was hosted by non-other than “Promisess, Promises” star Sean Hayes.
Take that Newsweek!
But it didn’t quite start off with razzle dazzle. The whole thing almost turned into one big wet mess, with damn near torrential rain right until the curtain went up – or in this case the red-carpet plastic being un-sheathed.
Good thing it stopped when it did too, cuz The TONY’s have not seen a list this luminary celebrating the great white way in many a decade. Even if Beyonce and Jay Z, Denzel Washington and Jude Law skipped the step-and-repeat.
The Ladies were everywhere! And by that we mean real ladies – not the mary’s!
in attendance: Linda Lavin, Aretha Franklin, Lucy Liu, winner Catherine Zeta Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kerry Washington, Michelle Williams, Idina Menzel, Lea Michele, winner Viola Davis, Laura Linney, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Melanie Griffith (who never lets go of Antonio – and who can blame her!), Cate Blanchett, Paula Abdul and Naomi Watts – to name a bunch.
Thank you all for the wonderful work that you do so well!
Aside from my devastation – I would still do him and let his man join or watch, his choice – I found Harris to be a stellar host and his closing number was camp of a new age!
Clad in basic black and red(dish) shoes, Princess wowed the arrivals line in her off-the shoulder ballerina cocktail number.
Ordinarily I frown on black for photo ops – they devalue the pics tenfold, but dammit if she doesn’t work black into a shine!
Hell if that alone doesn’t merit an honorable mention.
Bravo! Just keep em away from Kevin Spacey…
I would climb him like the redwoods!
Kudos to him! Best of luck come envelope time…
