Hollywood Take 2: Less Than Perfect Behavior

27 Oct

This week in Hollywood less than perfect behavior seems to fill the web, airwaves and pages.  Some events were predictable; some may have been inevitable, yet with some consistency, many might be a kind of traditional.  Moving our way closer to the end of yearlong political campaigns should we dare make predictions? Is this foreshaowing future hostility in entertainment or are these uncharacteristic interactions purely an expression of the moment.  You decide.

HOLLYWOOD TAKE 2: Big Bird May Get A Pink Slip

6 Oct

A lot has happened in Hollywood this week. We had the first presidential debate where many tuned in to watch Big Bird get bullied by presidential candidate Mitt Romney.  Then earlier in the week Oprah and Tyler Perry announced their collaboration together.  Plus female directors get ignored and not one is hired to direct for the majority of prime time dramas, comedies, or reality series airing on ABC, CBS, CW, Fox, and NBC?  So we will revisit these events and ask you to share your thoughts.

HOLLYWOOD TAKE 2: When Rules are Broken

12 May

For the week ending May 12th, I can’t help remembering all of the week’s where the accumulated day’s outcomes were fairly ordinary, conventional, or certainly non-noteworthy. Other than The Avengers fairly unprecedented box office successes other events were equally unique and significantly hard to predict.  In many instances scenarios whose endings were inscribed, will have to be rewritten.  Conclusions that appeared to be confirmed should instead be entirely rethought.  And assurances that should have accumulated a fair amount of interest will certainly have to be recalculated. Filled with innovators, ground-breaking technology and trendsetters, this wasn’t a predictable week and little occurred historically to help say otherwise.

2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

30 Apr

by Littlebells

Saturday, April 28, 2012, the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) held its 92nd annual dinner.  The Association began in 1914 after unfounded that the Congressional Standing Committee of Correspondents would pick which reporters would be invited.  The White House reporters were greatly upset and eleven of the said reporters formed the WHCA.  It lay dormant until 1920 when it had it’s first dinner.[1]

Hollywood Take 2: What We Believe (or Not)

24 Mar

With this website, Linked in Hollywood (or LIH), moving on from a series of articles devoted to spirituality it seems the greater Hollywood community may be following our lead.  For most of the stories this Hollywood weekly review seem oddly preoccupied with beliefs, incidents or systems of faith.  Whether we’re talking about our notions of what constituted the last four years of the last U.S. presidential period.  Our expectations regarding who or what will be competitive in next year’s Oscar race. When we should count out one of our pop culture’s reigning scribes. What constitutes an intelligent return of a biblical heavy weight? Regarding the life of a boxing champion, when should a Vegas act command our attention?  Our personal beliefs help us resist or help us to sustain our attention.
