Model Watch: Tv persona Sarah Lian lets her outfits do the speaking

Clothing is more than just vanity. Sarah Lian believes it can also work to complement a personality. She also sees fashion as a reflection of society and time.

The 38-year-old Malaysian gives a lot of thought to the choice of her outfits – be it with simple accessories like accessories or more serious things like a sustainable fashion choice.

Born in Taiping, Perak, and raised in Canada, Lian was active in film, television and theater. She is often seen here as a celebrity in the local scene at events (or as a hostess).

As for her aesthetic, she seems to prefer anything that can help her stand out.

From bold yet chic designs to comfy two-piece ensembles to exquisite red carpet dresses, Lian certainly knows how to rock a look. Maybe it’s more about their confidence than anything else.

While Lian likes to keep up with trends, she doesn’t think they define anyone’s style. In her opinion, fashion shouldn’t be a make or break factor in judging a person.

Curating a good OOTD (Outfit of the Day) is in the details, after all, and Lian is more demanding than most when it comes to striking that fine balance between effortless and beautifully polished looks.

What do you think of fashion? How does it affect life in general?

Fashion plays a big role in my life. In addition to studying fashion at university, I believe that it is an extension of your own personality. Fashion has always been a social commentary on society and the world we live in, and to me that sounds true. Since most of us were at home (during the pandemic), clothes like loungewear or fun “home” styles were more noticeable and common. It also showed that there wasn’t much room for pretexts as everyone had nowhere to go, we could all be more authentic. Also with sustainability in the foreground, I try to be a little more conscious when buying clothes. When I buy fast fashion, I make sure that I have pieces that last a long time and, to be honest, my favorite pieces have a long lifespan.

What does a typical Sarah Lian outfit look like?

I would probably describe my personal style as effortless, chic with a touch of boldness. I like to take risks while holding on to simple silhouettes that emphasize the curves on a woman’s body. A textured dress with a neckline or design detail paired with a pair of strappy sandals would likely be a signature Sarah Lian look.

If someone asks you for moderation suggestions, how would you respond?

Convenience is the key. If you are not comfortable in your own skin, everything you wear will look like you are drowning. Also, knowing your body type and finding ways to balance your appearance would be another aspect of dressing well, and if all fails, stick to the basics. Don’t make it too complicated! 4. Do you think everyone can be fashionable?

I think anyone can be fashionable with the amount of attention and time they spend on fashion. Being up-to-date on the trends and the new collections or the spirit of each season can help you make better, more informed decisions about what you like and what you don’t like. That being said, you can still be fashionable if you stick to the basics, it’s all up to your interpretation.

What are your style essentials?

A pair of comfortable heels, rings or bracelets to add a little more detail to the outfit, and a great lipstick too.

Tv: Particular occasions made for some boring nights | Leisure

Serious academics may disagree with me vehemently, but I uphold the purpose of all television, film, theater, music, dance, and other distractions to keep myself entertained.

When enlightenment, education, and life changing revelation follow it is a bonus or more, but the main role is to provide people with a good time, if possible a smart, well-staged good time.

Twice in the past week, special programs that appeared on television were as boring as a catalog of seeds. It can be said that each was news or ceremonial and was not subject to the same criteria as a regular broadcast, but both were put together by a broadcast company, each ABC, which was supposed to know better about and record TV production Time to make sure the viewers saw something of substance and quality.

In ABC’s defense, the two programs, this year’s Academy Awards and Two NFL Drafting Nights, are being orchestrated by outside parties who have to do business and some say what’s going to happen on screen. Awards must be given and the names of the designs must be read. Some drama and tension are involved, but they come in irregular doses. It’s the job of the television producers to fill something interesting.

The Oscars achieved their lowest ratings in years. Part of that can be attributed to a year when people didn’t have the same access to movies as usual. Even I, a film buff and film historian, had to keep a keen eye out for publications and figure out where to find them and how to watch them.

Ignorance of the nominated award or performances is only part of the answer, as in most years the majority of audiences do not know about half of the films or recognize more than a handful of actors.

What has been missing lately is a heavy dose of Hollywood glamor and some showbiz razzmatazz. Added to this is the tendency of the current stars to use their time at the microphone to make political statements that may seem cool and fashionable to some but annoy others because they agree or disagree with the speaker and do not correspond to the purpose of the Oscar ceremony and Registering as a preacher in a trendy, oh-what-a-good-boy-am-me way, and not something useful or inspiring.

Regina King, who first appeared on the 2021 Oscar show, wasn’t even joking when she said people were reaching for their remotes and she started her moment of sentimental justice.

I interviewed Regina King and I like her. She’s intelligent and has a sense of humor, but she killed the Academy Awards from the start. I’m too curious who gets the Oscar to take it off, but as King invited, many have.

When I passed King, the show never started as entertainment. I enjoyed looking at the awards and fashion, but nothing in between tried to amuse or appeal to the need for a television show.

High-flying explanations of the craft of film and even personal stories about how presenters took an interest in films did not create joy and amazement. You stunned. Each Oscar show has five songs to showcase, scores to play, and key scenes from the films of the year to be shown.

At this year’s Oscars, no musical numbers were listed and only a few excerpts from nominated films were shown. The producers seemed to care about keeping things solemn, banal and loud.

Let’s be honest. Glenn Close, who plays “Da Butt” in a ridiculous game chaired by Tyler Perry, isn’t enough to win praise.

At least, when Perry got philosophical while accepting the Jean Hersholt Prize for Humanitarian Aid, he spoke about “the middle” and avoided extremes. Thanks also to the European and Asian recipients who took care of films and families.

As for the NFL draft, I couldn’t believe the clownish, idiotic, uninteresting chatter as it continued between picks. That wasn’t television. I was in a mess. The commentators talked about each other and seemed to compete over who could be the most croaky and the least astute. The show had no pace, no style. It was an all-rounder that never offered anything to see or hear unless an actual selection was made.

No one involved in the NFL should be proud of his or her performance, let alone the slow pace, clinging to the things that should be said, and the energetic antics apparently borrowed from Holy Moly.

If this is the best ABC or TV can do, maybe even I, a fan who likes to see things as they happen, will get a newspaper or Google to find out who has been belatedly rewarded.

Misplaced praise

The only thing that annoys me when listening to some jazz stations is when a DJ or presenter ascribes the composing of a song to the performer or arranger and not to the actual author.

A song “Feeling Good” is sung a lot, and on two separate occasions, both in television competitions, I’ve heard it is credited to people who sang it famously but didn’t have the slightest hand in writing.

One who was introduced to “Feeling Good” as Michael Bublé. Last week’s “The Voice” even had the subtitle “Feeling Good”, Nina Simone.

Yes, Bublé recorded a rousing version of the song and Simone provides a final rendition as usual, but the tune was written for a 1964 Broadway show, “The Roar of the Fat Color, the Smell of the Crowd” by that musical composer, Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse.

How about a little exact loan where it’s due?

Cooper does well on Jeopardy!

No other host grew as much as Anderson Cooper did during his two-week tenure as the host of “Jeopardy!”

At the end of his first week, I wrote off Cooper as someone who knows his television skills well but seemed a bit bland when it came to, “Jeopardy!” lively.

In the second week, the final episode of which was anticipated by the NFL draft (Hrrumph!), Cooper seemed to find a step and was both looser in joking with attendees and quicker in making accurate comments on answers and situations that went with it every show. While he’s not generally a fan of Cooper, I think he would be my second pick after Ken Jennings to take on the late Alex Trebek when “Jeopardy!” continues with a permanent host.

Starting tonight (7pm on Channel 6), CBS News’s Bill Whitaker will be the current host, a current feature on Big Eye’s primetime newscast “60 Minutes”.

During the “Jeopardy!” Theme last week a brouhaha evolved when a hand gesture from three-time champ Kelly Donahue was interpreted as a sign used by white supremacists. I believe Donahue when he said he had no political motive for holding three fingers diagonally against his tie the last time he appeared. He said he said he had won three games and apologized if his message was misinterpreted.

The whole controversy is another molehill, albeit a molehill, turned into a mountain by people who see wrongdoing everywhere and pounce on it for joy. I’m looking forward to a day when people stop taking every complaint seriously and jump on belt cars in indignation until it becomes clear that something significant has happened.

Youth heroes die

Early television started with the tradition of shows with families, which required the recruitment of children to play a key role.

There have been hundreds of household favorites throughout TV history, from Jerry Mathers and Ron Howard in the 1950s to the teens we saw on shows like Modern Family, The Conners, and The saw the Goldbergs grow into young adults. “

When I was a kid, halfway through an earlier century, I had two particular favorites among teenage actors of the time, Lee Aaker, who played Corporal Rusty on “Rin Tin Tin,” and Johnny Crawford, a mouseketeer I couldn’t wait until you see Mark McCain on “The Rifleman” every week.

My fan’s affection for these two child actors continues to this day. I stop at the reruns of “Rifleman” so I can see young Johnny Crawford learn right from wrong in an emerging west from his father Lucas McCain, played by Chuck Connors.

Coincidentally, both Aaker and Crawford died in April, Aaker earlier that month, Crawford on Thursday the 29th.

I haven’t met either of them, not as obvious a circumstance as you might think, considering I’ve been interviewing people from television and television history for over 50 years, and have met many of the actors I enjoyed as a kid.

Still, I felt lost in both deaths.

Anyone who remembers me in single digits for days could remember that I had a Rin Tin Tin doll that I had taken everywhere. There’s a picture of me holding the dog at a Thanksgiving dinner. Without exception, people comment and say, “What a beautiful dog! What was his name? “I say” Rinty “and add that the dog is not real, but a toy and part of my bond with” Rin Tin Tin “whom I observed religiously and not just Lee Aaker but John Y as well Brown enjoyed playing the head of the fort, Lt. Rip Masters.

My bond with Rin Tin Tin and Corporal Rusty was so great that I had a Rusty costume that I often put on after school and wore three Halloween’s in a row. Yes, I would pretend I was another child soldier at the fort that Rusty took in when his parents were killed, and I would make up dialogue with Rusty and Rip and others from their home base in Fort Apache.

I was also an imaginary friend of Mark McCain. There was something thoughtful about Johnny Crawford’s approach to the role that I still see in reruns today. Like other boys in TV series, he ran into trouble from which his father had to save him. He has also witnessed many events as the west went from wild to civilized and organized. Mr. Crawford’s Mark seemed so understanding and mature. Nor was he afraid of being a good kid who could accept situations and learn from them.

Lee Aaker stopped playing after his childhood. He reportedly died penniless and almost unrecognized. That makes me especially sad because I can still imagine scenes from “Rin Tin Tin” and of course remember Mr. Aaker as a child and imagine him.

Johnny Crawford stayed in the entertainment realm and kept playing – you can see him on shows from a few years ago. – during a career as a composer and musician.

Every generation has its nostalgic shows and nostalgic characters. While I well remember Tommy Rettig, Billy Gray, Jon Provost, Paul Peterson, Rusty Hamer, Angela Cartwright, Shelley Fabares, Tony Dow, Dwayne Hickman, Jay North, Lori Martin, Noreen Corcoran, and a number of Mouseketeers, were those two Most important, and for whom I had the greatest affection, were Lee Aaker and Johnny Crawford.

May both rest in peace. As long as the generations “Howdy Doody” and “Mickey Mouse Club” live, they will remember.

Tv: Movie star chef Liberato transferring to area; Oscar nominations coming Monday | Leisure

Nick Liberato hatte während der COVID-Pandemie eine andere Erfahrung als die meisten Leute im Restaurantgeschäft.

Anstatt sich zu verlangsamen, sagt der Küchenchef, der den Eigentümern Tipps gibt, wie sie ihr Geschäft in Shows wie „Bar Rescue“ und „Restaurants on the Edge“ wiederbeleben können, dass er wie immer beschäftigt war, drei Unternehmen gründete und seine Familie von Kalifornien nach Yardley verlegte und planen, in diesem Frühjahr ein neues Restaurant zu eröffnen, ein jüdisches Delikatessengeschäft namens The Borscht Belt in Stockton, New Jersey.

“Es ist sehr wichtig, mit Ihrer Kreativität Schritt zu halten und über neue Dinge nachzudenken, die zu tun und zu erfinden sind, Liberato, der sowohl vom Surfen als auch vom Essen begeistert ist”, sagte er während eines Telefongesprächs aus dem Büro, in dem sich der Borschtgürtel weiterhin befindet gebildet.

„Ich war genauso beschäftigt und habe in seinem letzten Jahr genauso hart gearbeitet. Ich hatte Dinge, die ich produzieren wollte. Dringlichkeit ist wichtig. Ich war mir der Pandemie und ihrer Auswirkungen auf die Gastronomie bewusst, aber ich arbeite immer daran, etwas zu erreichen. Ich habe immer eine Zeitleiste im Kopf und dränge vorwärts, um meine Ziele zu erreichen. Einige Leute saßen still. Ich war das Gegenteil. Für mich war das Jahr wie ein Samstagabend mit 150 Reservierungen. Es wird schwierig sein, damit umzugehen, aber eine härtere Mentalität wird Sie durchbringen. So bin ich auf COVID zugegangen. “

Zu den wichtigsten Schritten gehörte, dass Liberato seine Frau und drei Töchter im Alter von 2, 5 und 6 Jahren aus Venice, Kalifornien, verlegte, wo er direkt von der High School abzog, um surfen zu können. In Südkalifornien lernte er auch das Lebensmittelgeschäft, indem er zunächst alles tat, was ihn jemand fragte, und dann das, was er über Essen gelernt hatte, mit Dingen in Einklang brachte, an die er sich erinnerte, indem er mit seinem Vater kochte, um die Art von Koch zu werden, von der andere Rat suchten.

„Venedig war großartig für mich als junger Mann. Ich wurde Kalifornier und liebte. Jetzt habe ich eine Familie. Ich bin in Bucks County aufgewachsen und meine Frau und ich dachten, das wäre eine bessere Gemeinschaft für unsere Töchter. Wir haben uns als richtig herausgestellt. Es gibt keine Obdachlosen in jeder Tür und niemand injiziert Drogen auf der Straße. “

Liberato kocht, konzipiert und entwirft Restaurants, daher wurde es wichtig, eines in der Nähe seines Wohnortes zu eröffnen.

“Stockton ist vielleicht nicht der Ort, an dem man ein jüdisches Delikatessengeschäft erwarten würde, aber ich habe viele Hausaufgaben gemacht und mir viele Fragen gestellt, bevor ich mit dem Borschtgürtel fortfuhr”, sagte Liberato.

„Als ich in Bucks County aufgewachsen bin, habe ich viel Zeit in New Hope verbracht und es geliebt. Ich mache immernoch. Bei meinen Recherchen habe ich einige Dinge gesehen, die mir geholfen haben, Entscheidungen zu treffen. Ich habe viele junge Leute gesehen, die aus New York nach Bucks und Hunterdon Counties gezogen sind. Wie ich kennen diese Leute Katz’s, das 2nd Ave. Deli und Harold’s in Edison. In Stockton sah ich eine kleine Stadt mit Möglichkeiten und Plänen für sich. Obwohl ich Italienerin bin, ist meine Frau Jüdin, unsere Freunde sind Jüdin, viele Leute um mich herum, die aufwachsen, sind Jüdinnen. Ich kenne die Küche und ich weiß, dass die Leute ein gut durchdachtes, authentisches Delikatessenessen lieben.

“Es geht mehr darum”, fährt Liberato fort. “Ich bin um die Welt gereist, habe probiert und Essen gemacht. Ich liebe es zu reisen, bin neugierig auf die lokale Küche und habe in den Tagen ‘Bar Rescue’ und ‘Restaurants on the Edge’ aus den Fehlern anderer gelernt.

„Jeder macht Fehler, ich eingeschlossen. Auf das, was Sie lernen, kommt es an. Es geht auch umgekehrt. Ich habe viel Positives von Küchenchefs und Restaurantbesitzern auf der ganzen Welt gelernt.

„Ich mache alles sorgfältig. Ich glaube an Daten und treffe viele Entscheidungen. Ich vertraue auch meinen Instinkten. Ich habe einen starken Sinn für Menschen, die in Bezug auf Essen und in Bezug auf ein Paket mögen werden. Ein Restaurant muss komplett sein. Das Dekor und die Stimmung müssen stimmen. Sie müssen die richtige Ware haben. Das Leben besteht aus Erinnerungen. Das sind Essen und Reisen, Erinnerungen. Das ist es, was Sonntagsessen ist, wenn Sie das Essen Ihrer Großmutter oder in meinem Fall das Essen meines Vaters und meiner Großmutter essen. Ich weiß nicht nur kulinarisch, sondern kaufe auch in jedem Restaurant, das ich besuche, ein T-Shirt. Das richtige T-Shirt ist also Teil meines Geschäftsplans. Die richtige Matzo-Ballsuppe und gehackte Leber sowie Blinis und Bagels sind natürlich das Herzstück des Borschtgürtels. “

Liberato sagte, er eröffne nie ein Restaurant, bis es fertig ist, also habe er keinen Starttermin. Er wird auch am 6. April damit beschäftigt sein, mit dem Arts Council in Princeton über Essen zu sprechen. Reservierungen für diese Veranstaltung sind schnell ausverkauft. Liberato ist ein Unentschieden.

„Meine ersten Lektionen über Essen waren zu Hause. Mein Vater und seine Mutter waren wundervolle Köche, und sie ließen mich zuschauen, helfen und lernen. Meine andere Großmutter kochte italienische Spezialitäten, Pasta immer von Grund auf neu. Als ich zum Surfen nach Venedig ging, schien es mir selbstverständlich, mich durch die Arbeit in Restaurants zu ernähren. Es war eine Erleichterung, einen Job zu bekommen, nachdem ich drei Monate in meinem Auto geschlafen hatte.

„Mit allem, was ich mache, mit all meiner Erfahrung, vom Kochen zu Hause über das Besuchen von Restaurants auf der ganzen Welt bis hin zum Wissen um die Probleme und zur Lösung der Probleme und dem Wissen, was die Leute wollen, bewege ich mich schnell, aber auch mit Vorsicht . Ich möchte alles richtig machen, bevor ich öffne. “

Der Borschtgürtel ist Liberatos erster Ausflug in dieses Gebiet. Die Energie und positive Einstellung, die Sie in seinen Zitaten und seiner Stimme hören. Nick Liberato ist ein Mann, der das Leben liebt und es genießt, es großartig zu leben, mit Anspielungen auf die Tradition.

Ein bisschen Shakespeare

Ein Geschichtenerzähler, der noch besser als Oprah Winfrey war, hatte einen Titel, der meinen Eindrücken aus dem Interview der letzten Woche mit Oprah und dem Herzog und der Herzogin von Sussex, Prinz Harry und Meghan Markle entsprach.

Ich beziehe mich auf Shakespeare und “Viel Lärm um nichts”.

Amerikaner können Zuneigung zur britischen Monarchie und zur königlichen Familie haben, die die Institution zu Fleisch und Knochen macht. Ich mache.

Im Allgemeinen werden wir jedoch von dieser Monarchie als Macht über uns befreit und das schon seit 245 Jahren. Wir müssen auch eine Sache über die Sussexen verstehen, während wir überlegen, wie sie betrachtet werden können.

Sie sind nicht der nächste König und die nächste Königin von England. Prinz Charles ist, dann Prinz William und dann Prinz George. Harry ist Sechster nach diesen drei und Williams anderen Kindern, Charlotte und Louis.

Auch dies bedeutet uns auf dieser Seite des Teiches wenig.

Wir können also mit einer jungen Frau sympathisieren, die sich so „ungeschützt“, unerwünscht und unbeachtet fühlt, dass sie es für besser hält, wenn sie nicht lebt. Wir können auch verächtlich sein, wenn wir glauben, dass ein tiefer Rassismus zu ihrer Traurigkeit geführt hat.

Nichts in der Sendung hat mich auch nur ein wenig bewegt. Ehrlich gesagt sah ich, dass Oprah Melodram oder Drama jeglicher Art aus einem im Wesentlichen langweiligen, belanglosen Interview erzwingen musste.

Sicher, das Innenleben der königlichen Familie hat einen gewissen Reiz, selbst in einer Gesellschaft wie unserer, die keine offiziellen Ränge oder eine feste Tradition des Klassensnobismus hat. Wenn Sie die königliche Familie aus der Gleichung herausnehmen, habe ich eine ziemlich häufige Geschichte über ein Paar gehört, das mit seinen Verwandten nicht zurechtkommt und sich so missverstanden fühlt, dass sie es vorziehen, sich zu entfremden, und sich daher auf die Suche nach ihren eigenen machen Vermögen.

Harry und Meghan haben aufgrund des Erbes von Diana, der Mutter von Harry, ein Kopfgeld, auf das er in Oprahs Werk Bezug genommen hat, einen Vorsprung auf ein Vermögen.

Es gab viel Gefühl, mehr Sentimentalität und nicht viel, um die Aufmerksamkeit zu bewerten, die Oprahs Programm erhält.

Ah, der Unterschied in der Aufmerksamkeit, die Oprahs Show bekommt, könnte einer der Faktoren sein, die so viel über die Geschichte der Sussexes und so viele von Meghan Markles Beschwerden informieren. Ich spreche von der Boulevardpresse, die in England ziemlich virulent ist. Die meisten Briten haben Spaß daran, sich über die Tabs lustig zu machen, während sie ihren Klatsch genießen. Die königliche Familie ist besonders neugierig und ihre Mitglieder sind in jeder Ausgabe vertreten. Prinz Andrew und Meghan liefern heutzutage viel Munition.

Tabs interessieren sich weniger für Fakten als vielmehr für das Keuchen. Ein Leckerbissen, das jemanden schlecht aussehen lässt, ist Gold für ihn. Sie leben, um aus alltäglichen Ereignissen einen Skandal zu schaffen. Ein Artikel, der die Öffentlichkeit dazu bringt, in seine kollektiven Sprachen zu klicken, bringt Leserschaft und Einnahmen.

Die Tabs sind Teil von England, und Meghan hat sicher ein schönes Thema für sie gemacht.

Ist es wirklich neu, wenn eine Schwägerin vor einer Hochzeit eine andere zum Weinen bringt? Oder ist das in der Welt so? Wenn Sie Oprah sind und ein Gesicht des Schocks ziehen und sich über einen bestimmten Leckerbissen wundern – oder über vier – sollte sich nicht eine Frage auf den Kontext einer Bemerkung beziehen? Müßige, vielleicht unschuldige Neugier könnte dazu führen, dass jemand etwas fragt, das nicht so empörend ist, außer wenn Oprah, Meghan und Harry es so aufbauen, und die Öffentlichkeit, die von Boulevardzeitungen und Fernsehsendungen wie „TMZ“ angeheizt wird, springt direkt auf die Aufruhr ‘Zug.

Gähnen. Gähnen. Gähnen.

Im Wesentlichen dachte ich, Meghan Markle habe sich gut verhalten. Es ist mir egal, ob sie jede Geschichte treu erzählt hat oder nicht. Nichts davon war so erderschütternd, wie die Leute es sich vorstellen. Es schien mir alles ziemlich gewöhnlich zu sein, zumal sie immer wieder alle entlastete und über den Saft jammerte, anstatt ihn zu verschütten.

Abgesehen von dem Teil, in dem sie sich das Leben nehmen wollte, wurden meine Schultern müde von all dem Achselzucken. Und dann war Meghan was, 35, 36 Jahre alt und hatte ihr halbes Leben allein gelebt? Schieben Sie den Diener beiseite, fliehen Sie dem Funktionär ins Gesicht, schnappen Sie sich ein Telefon und rufen Sie einen Psychiater an. Es sieht für mich so aus, als hätten die Sussexes auf lange Sicht das Richtige für alle Beteiligten getan, indem sie gegangen sind und sich selbstständig gemacht haben.

Wenn Meghan es gut machte, sah Harry wie ein Wrack aus und war nicht so artikuliert, wie ich es erwartet hätte. Na ja, wie ich schon sagte. Das Spiel und der Thron gehören William. Es ist nicht so, dass Harry keine Rolle spielt oder dass er nicht beliebt bleibt. Es ist so, dass er nicht wichtig sein kann als der Bruder, der König sein wird. Angesichts der Filmabkommen, Angebote für Vermerke und Gebühren für Auftritte, die die Sussexes verdienen, würde ich nicht zu viel für sie weinen. Ich hörte immer wieder, wie Steve Allens alte Registrierkasse „ka-ching“ wurde, während sie über ihr zukünftiges Leben sprachen.

Oprah ist diejenige, für die ich mich am traurigsten fühle. Die “Donahue” Tage, leider und Halleluja, haben ihre Zeit gesehen. Ja, die Beschwerde einer Person, die uns alle zu einfühlsamer Raserei anregen soll, hatte angesichts aller Probleme mit der Meghan-Harry-Saga den gewünschten Effekt. Dennoch sah es für mich so aus, als hätte Oprah, fast verzweifelt, den größten Teil des Dramas erzwungen. Sie wurde ernst und sprach sich aus, wie es eine Schauspielerin tun würde. Ich mag Oprah und denke, sie ist eine der besten Interviewerinnen und Fernsehmoderatoren aller Zeiten, aber das Sussex-Interview war mehr brutzelnd als substanziell und sprudelnder als lustig.

Ehrlich gesagt würde ich lieber “The Crown” sehen. Und wird.

Imelda Staunton nach Olivia Colman, Claire Foy und Helen Mirren? Gott schütze die Königin.

Hier kommen Oscar-Nomen

Die jährliche Ankündigung, auf die ich gespannt bin, wird am 15. März erfolgen.

Es sind die Oscar-Nominierungen, die die Vorstellung der Mitglieder der Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences von dem zeigen, was im Kino des letzten Jahres am besten war.

Wikipedia, Facebook und andere Verkaufsstellen werden darauf bestehen, die heutigen Oscar-Anwärter als Nominierten für 2021 zu bezeichnen.

Das ist nicht wahr. Obwohl sie ihre Nominierungen und vielleicht die Auszeichnung im Jahr 2021 erhalten haben, stammen die Menschen, die heute geehrt werden, aus Filmen, die im Jahr 2020 herauskamen. In meinem Buch sind sie also die Nominierten im Jahr 2020.

Historisch gesehen unterbrechen die Morgenshows in jedem Netzwerk ihre normalen Interviews und Formate, um die angekündigten Entscheidungen der Akademie zu zeigen. Ich gehe davon aus, dass dies auch in diesem Jahr der Fall sein wird.

Neal Zorens Fernsehkolumne erscheint jeden Montag.

Tv Q&A: The Mankiewicz household tree | Arts & Leisure

You have questions. I have some answers.

Q: Are Turner Classic Movies’ Ben Mankiewicz and Dateline NBC’s Josh Mankiewicz removed cousins?

On a. They are brothers with Josh the Elder. They are the sons of Frank Mankiewicz, the journalist, political actor and former president of NPR; Frank died in 2014. For those of you who know other celebrities named Mankiewicz, Frank was the son of Herman Mankiewicz, who was famous for co-writing Citizen Kane with Orson Welles. Herman was played by Gary Oldman in the recent film Mank. Herman’s brother Joseph was another Hollywood legend whose credits include writing and directing the classic “All About Eve”.

Q: How could CBS cancel “Mom”? It’s such a good show.

A: “Mom” is also a show that, as I mentioned a while ago, lost a big player before this season. Anna Faris, who played Christy, left for other opportunities. The remaining cast, led by the wonderful Allison Janney, is still going strong. And according to some reports, ratings also stayed good on some Faris slip-ups. However, other factors may also have been at work.

Eight seasons is a pretty good run for a series, and costs like salaries tend to go up when shows are long. According to Deadline.comJanney’s contract was finalized after that season, so the show may face a tough negotiation – or just Janney’s decision to move on. At the same time, according to Deadline, the show’s deal with CBS expires at the end of this season, which means there is more business to be done. And who knows how that would have worked out? For now, enjoy the remaining episodes, which will end with a series finale on May 6th.

Q: I seem to remember in the first few seasons of “Black-ish” that the character of Rainbow was a cardiologist. Now they say she is an anesthetist. Am i right or not

A: I have to say “not”. In the third episode of the first season in which Rainbow brings Diane to her place of work, we see that she is an anesthetist.

Q: Why was Redd Foxx absent so late in the third season of “Sanford and Son” and so early in the fourth “In St. Louis”?

A: Foxx was in an argument with the show. GetTV, which wears “Sanford” runes, says Foxx claimed health problems walking off during season three but was actually looking for a bigger payday. “Foxx wanted a 25 percent stake in the series and Tandem Productions filed a $ 10 million lawsuit,” the website said. The dispute was settled in June 1974 when Foxx received $ 25,000 per episode plus 25% of the producers’ net income. Although Foxx was absent from the production of the first three shows of the fourth season, NBC aired its return as a season premiere. “Foxx finally left the show after six seasons when he signed a contract for a variety show with ABC.

Q: Did the credits for “Young Sheldon” ever have a fear of tumbleweed?

A: Yes. The series has varied its title sequence over the years, and the tumbleweed made its debut in the fourth episode of season one.

Q: I would like to get a DVD with the film “Road House”, a black and white film with Cornel Wilde, Richard Widmark and Ida Lupino. I thought you could help.

A: This 1948 film can be difficult to find, especially because searching for “Road House” tends to lead people to the Patrick Swayze film of the same name. Nonetheless, a DVD of the Wilde / Widmark film – an admired example of film noir – was released in 2008 and can be found on (Look for Road House Widmark to skip Swayze.) Prices start at around $ 14 for used copies, much more for new ones. And there is a Blu-ray version if you have that format.

From JILL LAWLESS Associated Press

LONDON (AP) – The British royal family and British television have a complicated relationship.

The medium helped define the modern monarchy: the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. From 1953 was Britain’s first mass television spectacle. Since then, rare interviews have peeked behind the curtains of the palace at the all-too-human family inside. The fictional setting of the Netflix hit “The Crown” has shaped the view of the monarchy for a new generation, although the powerful, image-conscious royal family cannot control it.

“The story of the royal family, like any other story, is a constructed narrative,” said Phil Harrison, author of The Age of Static: How Television Explains Modern Britain.

And it’s a story that changed as Britain moved from an era of respect to an era of modern social mores and ubiquitous social media.

“The royals, especially the younger royals, have moved from the realm of the state apparatus to the realm of celebrity culture in the past few decades,” said Harrison. “That worked fine for her up to a point – but celebrity culture takes and gives and is notoriously capricious.”

So anticipation and concern are high before Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – a year after they left official royal life, citing what they consider intruders and racist attitudes to be described the British media to the Duchess, who is biracial. A clip released by CBS ahead of the Sunday airing shows Meghan, a former television star, who appears to have hinted that the royal family is immortalizing “falsehoods” about her and Harry.

Lucy Worsley: ‘I believed my dad and mom’ TV was a waste of cash’ | Tv

M.My parents weren’t interested in me watching TV in the 70s and 80s growing up, which is ironic as I ended up working in it. My father was a lecturer at Reading University and my mother worked for the Workers’ Educational Association. They grew all their own vegetables and were terribly bourgeois. In our house, television was rationed – instead I played the piano for an hour a day. My brother wanted so much to watch TV that he was quite happy to see the test card.

As a child, my parents’ attitudes affected me. I have an old youth diary that marks the moment my parents decided to buy a color television. I was very much against it and wrote that it was a waste of money.

However, there were some things that we were allowed to see. I did Newsround with John Craven and enjoyed it Blue Peter. There is an article from Blue Peter I still remember it clearly: a replica of the life of Marie Antoinette in the Chapel of Versailles. She would open a large book containing small clippings from the fabric of all of her dresses and choose which dress to wear by sticking a pin in it. I remember it vividly because I thought I might want to work in this field. I’m a museum curator when I’m not on TV, and in our collection at Kensington Palace we have a book like Marie Antoinette’s that belonged to the daughters of George III.

If my parents felt generous after the news, we got to see the Carringtons in the dynasty too. I remember the melodrama that cast a spell over me. Krystle Carrington was something of a character in the story of Catherine of Aragon – married to the hero but always exposed to threats from other vicious, glamorous women who tried to push her from her place.

However, there was one series that was considered not only acceptable but also commendable by my parents: In Search of the Trojan War with Michael Wood. When I met him as an adult, I said to him: “You are not wearing leather pants, I am disappointed.” He explained to me that his image at the time was so unusual – so refreshing – that what I remembered as lederhosen was actually just jeans. Here was an archaeologist and television host who went to Turkey, walked through dusty ruins and desert landscapes, and was smart but also informal. That was what really impressed people in 1985: it looks like a traditional documentation format now, but it was so different at the time.

As a result of the series, I got the little children’s versions of the Odyssey and the Iliad and read novels and stories about them. Had I been an Edwardian boy I might have learned that in Eton, but as a girl in Nottingham in the 80s, I learned these stories through television and books.

As with the Trojans or Tudors, there are many evergreen stories that we keep coming back to. I think history documentaries are as much about the present as they are about the past. When I did the series about the six women In 2016 that was considered immensely radical because Henry VIII was not in the title – he was not in the foreground. The next step was the musical Sixthat doesn’t even have the word “woman” in the title.

The world is changing, so history has to keep up – I’m excited the new drama by Anne Boleynwhere she is played by a black actor, Jodie Turner-Smith. And nowadays, I take television seriously as an art form – it really matters.

Blitzgeist with Lucy Worsley is on February 23 at 8:30 p.m. on BBC One

Tv Q&A: Will there be extra of ‘Cash Heist’ and ‘The Restaurant’? | Existence

“Outlander” star Sam Heughan said in a recent interview with the New York Times about acting in the COVID-19 era: “It’s not so much the protocols that are difficult – you have to wear a mask, you have to social distance have where you can – it’s more of the psychology of it. When you first start a job everyone is very tense and very conscious. Of course the protocols are there for your own good, but everyone feels like they are or are being oppressed not being yourself or going against your own instincts as a person. When you see someone you haven’t seen in a while, you want to hug or touch them or get closer to them. You have to go against your instincts as an actor on set where to use your instincts to portray a character, so it’s a really strange situation, but you get used to it. “

Q: I fell in love with “Sanditon” in “Masterpiece”. Will there be a second season?

A: I mentioned a year ago that the series, based on an unfinished novel by Jane Austen, was pending at best. ITV, the company behind the series, had decided not to continue the drama, but the creative team hoped someone else would fund a sequel.

After months of no good news, “Sanditon” fans found hope in the success of “Bridgerton,” the costume drama that was a huge hit for Netflix. Perhaps, they thought, Netflix or some other service would like a series of their own in that style. And maybe someone will. But there is no deal announced anywhere at this writing.

Tv Q&A: Is that this the final season of ‘Choose Judy?’ | Leisure

Judy Sheindlin announced early last year that the current 2020-21 season of “Judge Judy” would be the last with new episodes.

Ken Hively, Los Angeles Times

You have questions. I have some answers.

Q: Is this the final season of “Judge Judy”? And will she be back with a different venue than I thought I read some time ago?

Reply: Judy Sheindlin announced early last year that the current 2020-21 season of “Judge Judy” would be the last with new episodes. After that, retries are available. In October 2020, Amazon Studios announced a deal with Sheindlin for a new untitled show that will air on IMDb TV, the free streaming service, later in 2021. The series will provide “a no-nonsense, fast-paced Judge Sheindlin’s signature-scoring style with a new suite of cases, litigation and verdicts,” said Amazon.

“I am overjoyed to be in business with Amazon Studios and to continue this incredible journey with them on a new platform is so exciting,” Sheindlin said in a statement. “I yelled at my husband Jerry about all of the packages he’d ordered from Amazon every day. I have enough mouthwash in the closets to keep the breath of the entire planet fresh for the next millennium. “

Q: Can you identify the song as the ending of the “Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life” episode called “Fall”? It was so memorable.

Reply: That was Sam Phillips’ “Reflecting Light”.

Q: I enjoy watching a Canadian TV show called “The Listener” on a local TV station. What is the name of the main actor whose character is called “Toby”? (The credits pass quickly.) It portrays a mind reader who advises a city police. It seems like a well written and well played show. What else can you tell us about it?
