Golden Globe Musings

By: Mary Fran Bontempo Last Sunday saw the Golden Globes, the Oscars' drunken cousin, again assaulting the airwaves with its annual public Hollywood A.A. meeting airing on NBC. As an awards season junkie, yes, I watched, and as always, I have some thoughts and opinions, which will never be taken into account by anyone but me, to share.

Which Sex and the City Character Are You?

By: Mary Fran Bontempo I really should get over it. But the truth is, I can't get enough of the adventures of Carrie Bradshaw and friends from the 1998-2004 HBO hit Sex and the City. While I never saw the originals, which I'm certain would have made me gasp and blush, the edited version of the series that seems to be on at some point every day has me hooked. Sex and the [...]

Stamos posted this pic last week on Instagram, and yes, I am [...]

The Oscars–Recap and Ruminations

By: Mary Fran Bontempo As usual, I loved watching the Oscars on Sunday night. Until, also as usual, I started to complain about pretty much everything around 90 minutes in.

This Sunday–It’s the Oscars!

By: Mary Fran Bontempo The Oscars will air this Sunday, February 22nd, starting at 7  p.m. on ABC, and I'll be on my couch, glued to our new 50-inch TV. (A gift from our kids at Christmas, and can I just say that we rarely leave the house anymore.) I'm an awards show freak, not always because of the medium being honored, but more for the fashion and star watching. Yet all of [...]
