I love following award shows. I also love movies and music. My favorite movie is The Color Purple with The Wizard of Oz coming in second. My favorite actress is Bette Davis and my favorite singer is Aretha Franklin.

I am very lucky that I got to see Tina Turner in concert three times. The first time was in 1997 with Cyndi Lauper opening for her. The second time was in 2000 with Lionel Richie opening for her and I saw the 2008 tour. A class act, hell of an entertainer, and an amazing singer. May she rest in peace.ReplyMay 26, 2023 at 11:47 am #1205442379
Low key would’ve given Jody R&B Female for “Looking for a New Love”. Love Aretha but a lot of her later wins were name checks.
Looking for a New Love by Jody Watley was hot and played all over the place, but I will admit Aretha’s album called Aretha was very strong. This is where it would have been nice to have the R&B album category because then Aretha would have likely taken that category. My guess is that Jimmy Lee would have been the song submitted and nominated in R&B Female.ReplyMay 23, 2023 at 10:15 pm #1205439406
I’m old and I don’t necessarily feel quite the same way (I’ve dipped in and out of TV) but it’s SO weird having everything finish within days of each other. I do wonder what will step in and fill the void.
Your comment made me think about 2004 when Sex & the City, Frasier, and Friends ended. I know that it was not within days of each other.ReplyMay 23, 2023 at 9:32 pm #1205439383
Anita Baker Rapture (album) – WINNER
Aretha Franklin – “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”
Janet Jackson – Control (album)
Chaka Khan – Destiny (album)
Patti LaBelle – Winner in You (album)
My guess is that Janet Jackson was second in this lineup for Control. I would have ranked the nominees as follows:
First – Anita Baker – Rapture (album) – WINNERReply
Second – Janet Jackson – Control (album)
Third – Patti LaBelle – Winner in You (album)
Fourth/Fifth – Aretha Franklin – Jumpin’ Jack Flash/Chaka Khan – Destiny (album)May 23, 2023 at 9:29 pm #1205439381
This was a terrible lineup. I would’ve swapped Janet or Pebbles for Stephanie. Neither deserves to be here. Who would you have wanted Stephanie to replace here?
1991 R&B FEMALE
Anita Baker Compositions (album) – WINNER
Regina Belle – “Make It Like It Was”
Janet Jackson – “Alright”
Patti LaBelle – “I Can’t Complain”
Pebbles – “Giving You the Benefit”
I do not remember hearing Patti LaBelle’s I Can’t Complain that much on the radio or seeing her perform this song, but it is a beautiful song with a nice vocal from Patti LaBelle. However, I would have expected Patti to get nominated in the previous year for the Prince produced Yo Mister.
I would probably remove Pebbles’ Giving You the Benefit from this lineup and replace with Comfort of a Man by Stephanie Mills. My guess is that Regina Belle was second in this lineup.ReplyMay 20, 2023 at 5:29 pm #1205435800

Niecy Nash and Aunjanue Ellis in Lead Limited Actress for When They See Us. I’ll never understand Aunjanue’s nomination (she shouldn’t have been nominated to begin with) but Niecy totally screwed herself out of what would have been an easy win for Limited Supporting Actress, especially since Netflix withdrew Felicity Huffman from contention.
I agree 100% with you. Niecy Nash was amazing in episode 4 of When They See Us and would have won in Supporting Actress.ReplyApril 30, 2023 at 1:45 pm #1205415171
Rachel would be deserving but when is the last time someone won for just their first and last seasons?
Kelsey Grammer won for the first season of Frasier in 1994 and won for the last season in 2004 in Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.March 28, 2023 at 2:35 pm #1205367395
Ah 2004 the year of utter dominance for Angels in America. What a cast!
It is shocking that Cattrall never won, how frustrating being nominated five years in a row without success.
Was it the same level of bickering/debate in 05 for the Desperate Housewives women?
Kim Cattrall’s best chance of winning based on submissions were 2002 and 2004.
There was a lottttttt of bickering about Lead Actress in a Comedy in 2005 with the following nominees:
Marcia Cross Desperate Housewives
Terri Hatcher Desperate Housewives
Patricia Heaton Everybody Loves Raymond
Felicity Huffman Desperate Housewives – WINNER
Jane Kaczmarek Malcolm in the Middle
Based on submissions, my vote would have been for Marcia Cross.March 27, 2023 at 6:00 pm #1205366329
I prefer WhitneyReplyMarch 27, 2023 at 5:55 pm #1205366326
The Halloween episode of Abbott Elementary should be submitted for Directing.ReplyMarch 27, 2023 at 5:49 pm #1205366319
Some of you should have been around in 2004 when the supporting actress comedy series nominees were:
Kim Cattrall – Sex & the City
Kristin Davis – Sex & the City
Megan Mullally – Will & Grace
Cynthia Nixon – Sex & the City
Doris Roberts – Everybody Loves Raymond
There was a lot of bickering, um I mean discussion.February 26, 2023 at 7:02 pm #1205320443
