    Theon Greyjoy: There And Back Again, An Ironborn's Tale

    That's all the more fitting for Theon's story, really. I wish that got as much coverage as people being "shocked" Alfie is Lily Allen's brother. I didn't even know until I read your post.

    Theon Greyjoy: There And Back Again, An Ironborn's Tale

    I’ve tried so hard to avoid anything related to Game of Thrones lately that I just saw Alfie Allen got a nomination. He earned that all the way back in season 2. A phenomenal actor who was the heart of the show for me. I’d love to see him win but even this is more than I expected.

    SNL Cast Discussion

    I found Tan France annoying enough when he did the makeover video with John Mulaney (especially his mock-bewilderment at the idea of being the same age as Mulaney because...come on now) that I haven't watched any others, but this newest with Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey is entertaining. Tina Fey pretty much takes over, which can sometimes be a good thing and sometimes is not, but fortunately it's a good thing here as she's lots of fun and keeps the energy going. (I also like her jacket) Rachel, of course, is a doll. And there's a fun surprise at the end.

    SNL Cast Discussion

    Interviews with Leslie Jones, Aidy Bryant and Cecily Strong about the past season (these are Emmy consideration articles). That Leslie felt the Idris Elba episode was her best last season...surprised me. https://www.goldderby.com/article/2019/leslie-jones-saturday-night-live-snl-season-44-video-interview-transcript/ https://www.goldderby.com/article/2019/cecily-strong-saturday-night-live-snl-video-interview-transcript/ https://www.goldderby.com/article/2019/aidy-bryant-shrill-snl-saturday-night-live-video-interview-transcript/

    In Memoriam: Celebrity Deaths

    Denise's family have started a gofundme for death expenses (if we aren't allowed to post that, my apologies) So many seem to have gone this week. Another is film star Valentina Cortese, 1975 Oscar nominee. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/10/obituaries/valentina-cortese-dead.html Ingrid Bergman won the Oscar that year. Ingrid, who felt her role and performance was not particularly award-worthy, decided to instead lament how bizarre and wrong it was that Academy rules meant that Cortese was nominated for Day for Night a year after it won Best Picture. It's a beautifully delivered speech by a luminous Bergman, and her rapport with Cortese is also a joy to watch. Unsurprisingly, it led the Academy to change their rules.
  11. The Jeff Richards AMA was moved to July 12th at 1 PM.

    SNL in the Media

    Dana Carvey talks about his memories of playing Ross Perot, and his encounters with Perot. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/la-et-st-ross-perot-dana-carvey-snl-20190709-story.html
  13. The news of Ross Perot's passing reminds me of how he was one of the first political voices and personalities I really knew. Part of that was through the SNL parodies, which were very frequent, and, generally, a lot of fun. This was, and still is, my favorite. https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/joyride-with-perot/n10313
