69th Emmy Awards

You may have seen my “Week That Was” post earlier this week where I anguished about the Emmys, lamenting how many times they have gotten their awards wrong before. And sure, there were some shockers (6 WINS FOR JULIA LOUIS DREYFUS IN VEEP, REALLY?), but I was astonished tonight to see so many categories won by the right people/series. ASS-TON-ISHED. Without further ado, read on for an Emmys wrap-up in three parts: As-Wrong-As-RPDR-Losing-To-The-Voice; As-Right-As-RuPaul-Winning-Oustanding-Host-Of-A-Reality-Series; and The Moments…

Met Gala 2017: Highs, Lows, and those who didn’t bother

Really, was there even a theme last night? YES, THERE WAS, AND IT WAS AVANT-FUCKING-GARDE WHICH MOST OF THESE PEOPLE SEEMED TO HAVE TOTALLY SKIPPED WHEN READING THEIR INVITATIONS. Sure, there were some (obvious) standouts and some pretty gowns that would have been wonderful at literally any other red carpet event, but it’s the MET goddammit, have some respect. So, yeah, you could say I have some ~feelings~ about the Met Gala. This is by no means a recap of alllll the outfits though (you can find them on, like, literally any other site), these are…

Oscars 2017: SCALPED

There’s no other way to describe it, I was scalped by these awards yesterday. Just like Janelle Monáe. Ask anyone in my office. I lost my DAMN mind. Sure, a lot of it was not positive (click here if you missed all the Fuck Shit), but the rest of it was damn near glorious. I remembered what pure joy felt like, and it was gooood. The Good Shit Mahershala Ali, Total God I shouldn’t need to tell you how devotedly I love Mahershala Ali. But in case you’re wondering, I do. I was…

Oscars 2017: Room For Improvement

WELL. That’s putting it mildly. I actually had to take the night to process all the feels I felt about yesterday’s Oscars. There is a LOT to unpack, I was on a damn rollercoaster of emotions until the LAST second, and I’m still coping with the grand finale. In order to cover everything I want to talk about and make sense of it all, I have divided the event into Fuck Shit and Good Shit. Let’s see how the tally holds by the end of it and get the fuck shit out…

Behold, The Queen

I had a whole other post written, recapped as I watched The Grammys, but then Album Of The Year was announced and I realised, again, that it was a load of fucking bullshit and they don’t deserve any words. Instead, I want to revisit every moment of Her glory today. And for the record, others have said and will continue to say it better than I ever could, so. Finally, no hate to Adele. In fact, I called it months ago, that she would give up AOTY if she won it over Bey. Watch her do just that…

Golden Globes: The Show

Welcome back for round 2 of Golden Globes coverage! The show itself was not the most exciting of all time and Fallon certainly left a lot to be desired as host, but it did have it’s moments! And – surprise, surprise! I had a lot of thoughts as I watched. The “Tell Me When It’s Over” Moments The pre-show reel was boring as fuck. But in a bland, inoffensive way – until it became all about Justin Timberlake and his bromance with Jimmy Fallon. Then it became straight-up offensive. The teleprompter breaking…

Golden Globes: The Red Carpet

HAPPY AWARDS SHOW SEASON! We are kicking off with the Golden Globes and I cannot contain my excitement. It is my favourite time of year, seriously (even more than Christmas…!). Today I’m excited to see what Emma Stone is wearing, just how irritable Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds will make me and if the HFPA will allow Queen Viola Davis to slay to the degree she deserves. What will follow is a stream of consciousness thought process of all the red carpet glamour. You’ve been warned. Stick with me if you can, and let me…

The 68th Emmy Awards 2016 aka The One With No Lemonade

Happy Emmys day! Awards season isn’t quite upon us, and I normally disagree with most “wins” at the Emmys but I do love a red carpet event. Even if Beyoncé was conspicuously absent and Lemonade won ZERO awards. See? It’s difficult to take the Emmys seriously. I know you’ve been waiting for my thoughts of the goooowns with bated breath but that has to wait. Let’s recap this shit-show first and get the awards out of the way. And yes, this was pretty much live-recapped and it is…

The BeyMAs

At the time of starting this is post, the telecast hasn’t even started in Australia yet. But I’ve already seen Blue Ivy in a damn ballgown with kicks and braids and have had my damn LIFE. It’s not even 10am. But I am DONE. The show has started. A lot is going on. I will be recapping as I watch so bare with my *emotions*. I have some already. First up, cringing irritation. Key and Peele are embarrassing themselves and me and I want it to end. Rihanna has already done an entire song…

Emmy Nominations – A Discussion (by me)

Even though it’s not quite here yet, I look forward to Red Carpet Awards Season more than anything else all year long (other than Grand Slams – I know, I’m a diverse enigma) and can critique/obsess over the outfits for days. Am also a hardcore feminist and that’s okay, because these clothes are meant to be looked at and talked about, that is their literal point of existence. Great! Now that’s out of the way let’s talk Emmy nominations because I have thoughts. First thing’s first &#8211…
