Definitely Robert Downey Jr. Which is weird since it was basically for one role. Sure, he has Sherlock Holmes, but one can often forget that those films existed. I do love Due Date, though. Did/will any actor make more money than him in the last 10 years?
These three are crazy since Hollywood standards and history would tell you that they are done, forgotten or has beens with a supporting role here and there at this point.
The Rock managed to become a huge star.

I think people need to remember that there was a time when: “no way in hell is Rami Malek getting anywhere near the Oscars”. And that was much closer to the Oscars than May.
So, “wait and see” is something I would recommend. I know it’s not Queen, but it’s still Elton John, so you know…wait and see.May 21, 2019 at 9:58 pm #1202903984
So, no reviews yet? Must be one of hell of a movie.May 18, 2019 at 7:47 am #1202898549
I think the producers are stupid and shady enough to throw a Brooklyn vs Yvie lipsync for the first round., but they were so desperate to pair Brooke and Vanjie in this episode that I just have to assume (I haven’t seen spoilers) that their next forced lip sync will be Yvie vs Silky. So that would automatically leave us with Yvie vs Brooke as the final 2 lip sync.
I now have a feeling that Yvie could win. She’s great, even if she’s missing something, like everybody this season. But Brooke really is the deserving winner. But I can imagine a Jinxx situation where Yvie does end up winning.
I can’t say it enough. Vanjie deserved to be in the finale. She will end up being in every episode, sure, but the show owes her big time for saving the season, which is something they could’ve seen even during production. So why not honor her (yes, I said “honor”) by having her in the finale instead of Akeria? It’s bullshit.May 16, 2019 at 10:51 pm #1202897215
Sad to see Vanjie go, but her performance was terrible. She never smiles while performing one of these dance challenges, she never has any emotion on her face, no other expression, just that “I’m here” face, and nothing else. No, she did not lip sync either…she couldn’t do her own rap? And that dress was just ridiculous. She should’ve done something like the Libra outfit. Vanjie, but way over the top. This was 100% not Vanjie.
So, funny as she is, amazing as she is, yes Michelle, she has gotten too many chances.
At least she made it through the entire season and practically saved it. These girls can go to the finale and win a crown, but Vanjie actually saved an entire season by herself. She was basically the main reason to watch, with tiny help from a few other girls. So in the end, she’s a huge winner. She will have a “legacy” and she might end up on All Stars anyway. She’s also the only girl I would pay to see from this season.
Can’t believe Akeria made it this far. Vanjie could’ve destroyed a bottom two with her, Brooklyn too. But Akeria was average at best, and that’s how lame Brooklyn and Vanjie were this week. They couldn’t even be better than Akeria and Silky in THIS challenge.
This is the result of this horrible casting and perfect proof of how bad the season has been: the obvious frontrunner and obvious winner of the season since a million weeks ago…can’t slay THIS challenge. What-the-fuck?
However, would anybody be mad if Ru would’ve toned down the Brooke critiques and go after Akeria for her extreme “average-ness” and send her to the bottom two with Vanjie? Where Vanjie would’ve beaten Akeria? It would’ve been believable and very much accepted. I mean they still look like they somehow rigged this shit anyway to get the Brooke/Vanjie dramatic lip sync for their dreams. Why not sacrifice Akeria instead?
The production was a huge mess. You couldn’t hear anything the queens sang or rapped. The song doesn’t seem bad, I just couldn’t hear it or hear the lyrics. And the whole “club” scene made the set look cheap as fuck.
Yvie deserved her win.
Vanjie completely stole the episode with her exit…again.

Surprised nobody is commenting on the Cannes premiere. Apparently the film is great with credible outlets saying it’s amazing, fantastic and so on. There’s even video of Egerton crying at the end of the screening.May 15, 2019 at 5:48 am #1202894745
Being the host and being nominated and winning is not a terrible thing. It happens all the time at the Emmys, and has happened at the Tonys (Hugh Jackman) and Oscars (Niven won, Caine, Matthau, Hogan were nominated). The problem is when the network who created and controls the awards also gets nominations. Specially for things as random as Nick Cannon or The Challenge.
Just like when people thought it was weird that a show known just for Kyra Sedgewick, got 4 ensemble nods at SAG, which aired on the same network, TNT, even though nobody ever cared about the cast and there were much more worthy and popular casts out there.May 14, 2019 at 1:10 pm #1202893857
So the people who voted or will vote for this award saw Blackkknsman, The Chi and RGB? Sure, sure.
And Spiderverse, amazing as it is, wasn’t that big of a hit, so who can believe it’s a best film nominee? A Star is Born, Aquaman or Bohemian Rhapsody would’ve been more believable.
Also, in an extremely logical way, the Emmys don’t qualify for the Emmys…so what the hell is The Challenge doing here? And those Nick Cannon double nods? One of which is for an MTV show? Okay.
Nobody remembers Venom, even if it had that kiss with girl Venom. Anything from any of those Netflix teen films would’ve made much more sense.
Also, Gayle King? Because of the R.Kelly thing? Please. No kid who votes for this saw that.May 12, 2019 at 4:14 pm #1202890618
So the last studio episode will feature al 5 girls doing the musical? Seems like a lot of people.
Nina should and will be Miss Congeniality. I suppose Shuga is next in line.May 11, 2019 at 8:44 am #1202888903
Well Vanjie did what she was supposed to do. She completely killed the runway challenge and got Ariel to look her best and look like a true Vanjie. I think Brooke did an insane job with Plastique, she managed to do her makeup and made her look like a real sister, a real Hytes.
But in the end, Vanjie was robbed. I think Ru robbed every single viewer of a fun and rewarding moment for us and for Vanjie. I don’t think a lot of people would’ve been disappointed to see Vanjie win, and see Brooke get one less win among so many wins she’s had already. Vanjie should’ve won. It would’ve a much nicer moment and it was deserved. Not to take anything from Brooke, but yeah…
Akaria killed that runway too, but in the end, it’s just another pageant dress. Even if both of them looked amazing. It’s the issue with Akareia. Everything is great, but basic at the same time. Again, she’s Kennedy Davenport.
Yvie didn’t explain her story about the looks for some reason, so Scarlett ended up looking bad and unfinished.
Silky was a mess, so was Nina. It was the obvious bottom two. No Scrubs is obviously one of the best song ever…but not for this. It wasn’t that exciting and they both fucked up. But Nina should’ve stayed. The runway was enough to let Silky go and it was more than time for her to go.
Sad to see Nina go, even if I never felt she was that great.
Vanjie has matched Shangela’s journey, she has a huge shot at doing better and making top 4. I cannot believe that next week if Silky ends up on the bottom, Yvie or Vanjie or Akaria will lose a lip sync to her. I was sure she would make top 4, but it’s obvious that Silky has to go home next week. If anybody else has to go home, I hope it’s Akaria.May 10, 2019 at 8:02 am #1202888021
Watched it pretty quickly, which is rare for me these days. But it was so so good. Really liked the whole season, both women were amazing. Linda Cardelini has some expressions and acting decisions that seemed weird from time to time, but she was amazing otherwise. Christina Applegate really delivered here, fantastic performance. I’ve always loved her acting, but this was better than anything she’s ever done.
I hope both of then get Emmy nominations and since I’m hardly watching any of the predicted nominees, I couldn’t care less about who’s snubbed in their favor. Valerie Mahafey would also make for a very worthy Guest Actress nomination/win.
The finale was pretty obvious, when the neighbor talked about the gun and considering how Judy screwed Steve with the money laundering. I suppose the mystery aspect is done and they’ll just focus on their relationship and grief, because they’ll of course blame everything on Steve now. Unless they pull a Desperate Housewives and come up with a new mystery or something to keep that part of the show going. But that hardly ever worked for DH.
Was there anything in the title cards? I noticed they always had a scene in them but then I always forgot to pay attention.
Anyway, great show. Very easy to binge.May 10, 2019 at 7:51 am #1202888013
It’s funny how low budget and uninteresting that video and song are. They couldn’t even get Zayn and that girl to film together. And as always, you can never really get a sense that Zayn wants to be in any video he’s ever done.May 9, 2019 at 11:34 am #1202886670
I say cast David Cross as make this Mrs Featherbottom, The Musical instead.May 5, 2019 at 5:53 am #1202880404
It’s gonna make close to 3 billion dollars, so a failed Oscar campaign isn’t gonna hurt anybody, especially if they realize midway through the campaign that it’s not gonna happen, like it happens to many other films each year. Or maybe they won’t realize shit and will keep pushing it ‘til the end, but with so much money, it’s worth a try.
Plus, Marvel might be delusional like many other people and might actually believe that Black Panther got a BP nomination because it was such a great film. So they could still be on that fake high and think this is also gonna work because a door has been opened, when it was actually not. All they have going for them is money. They would need to turn this around and look for an angle that works for them like Black Panther, ‘cause I don’t think “it made so much money” will be enough.May 4, 2019 at 5:40 am #1202879630
Well, this is it for Vanjie. Nowhere left to hide now. She’s definitely out next week unless Silky fucks up (which is possible). No way Ivye, Brooke or Nina leave before Vanjie. Akaria is a question mark, but she’s good enough to boot Vanjie, even during a lip sync.
Speaking of lip syncs, No More Drama? Really? And Shuga sort of won that one until the end when Vanjie finally stepped up and looked cooler with the drama of the “no more drama” part of the song. But they could’ve done something else.
Vanjie at least looked amazing. Shuga didn’t need those useless reveals.
Brooke continues to be on top and continues to be the obvious winner. It’ll take one hell of a gimmick from the producers during the finale to screw Brooke.
Glad that Nina got a win for this, I thought they would go with Brooke.
