Any word on an airdate for the U.S.? I saw Billie Piper live in Yerma when the production moved to New York for a limited run, and she honestly gave the best female acting performance I have ever seen. And no, I do not say that lightly and without major consideration of everything I’ve seen.
AGREED! Best live performance I have ever seen. Saw that production of Yerma when it played in NY, and I became a forever fan of Billie’s as a result.May 22, 2020 at 8:12 am #1203495218
My So-Called Life is such an expertly crafted single season wonder that nothing else compares. Brilliant from beginning to end.April 3, 2020 at 10:08 am #1203408196
The most exciting and creative work she has done in YEARS.
Any “film actor” would have killed for that part on a successful and heavily marketed commodity like BLL. And I’m sure more people have seen her work on this series than her annual Oscar bait. Streep’s presence was an event, folks.March 14, 2020 at 9:22 am #1203381117
Recently revisited Lady Bird, and I will forever not be okay with Laurie Metcalf losing.March 4, 2020 at 9:55 am #1203370815
Excuse me, what have Sarandon ever done that she’s seen as a social pariah?
She spoke ill of Hillary Clinton in 2016.February 28, 2020 at 7:13 am #1203363675
The Parent Trap A Prairie Home Companion Freaky Friday And her performance in “Mean Girls” was essential to the that film’s success. Let’s not go there!
Oh, we went there. Child actors make for great reality tv. The star of Mean Girls is and always has been the script. Any young female actor could have done that role.February 27, 2020 at 12:49 pm #1203362919
Lindsay Lohan’s absence has gone unnoticed by mostly everyone except herself. Aside from Mean Girls, where the script and her supporting cast did the heavy lifting, what from her filmography is memorable? Where is the moment where a star was born, so to speak? If she wants to perform for cameras, she’ll stick to reality tv.February 19, 2020 at 4:14 pm #1203352712
Funniest episode of the revival era for these folks. Wonder if it’ll come back for a third season?February 17, 2020 at 11:02 am #1203349688
What the hell happened to Kate Hudson’s career? Talk about someone who could’ve been huge.
I’m sure she was “offer only” for ages, and when that era of her career ended, she either wasn’t very good at auditioning or felt she didn’t need to so she started co-designing athleisure wear.February 15, 2020 at 7:58 am #1203347636
She had the support or wouldn’t have successfully completed two clean sweeps. Stay pressed because that will never change.February 11, 2020 at 9:42 am #1203342948
Live television is going the way of the fax machine and dial-up internet. The Academy should wait for their ABC contract to wind down, and then approach a streaming service for a two hour ceremony. Cut the performances, hand out the trophies, no monologues, just get down to business a la SAG. The playing field has changed, and I feel like the Academy is going to watch their ratings fall into single digits over the next few years if they don’t shake it up a bit.
Having said that, Middle America seems to have hit it’s quota for listening to movie stars get political. What was once escapism is now a bitter reminder that the world is off it’s axis.February 8, 2020 at 10:46 am #1203335001
Wever continues to deliver. Hope she’s remembered at the Emmys.February 8, 2020 at 6:43 am #1203334723

She gave that speech when winning for Adaptation in 2002, not Prada. Also I wouldn’t consider Adaptation as a “comeback” when she had been nominated only 3 years earlier for Music of the Heart in 1999. The longest she’s been without nominations was 5 years between 1990 (Postcards from the Edge) and 1995 (Bridges of Madison County).
The subject is winning, not just being nominated. Until that Adaptation win at the Globes, which was courtesy of Zeta-Jones being put in lead, it was her first Globe victory since Sophie’s Choice. After that, her awards attention had a second career wave. But let’s be aware that there was a window of nearly two decades where she wasn’t winning anything.
