University of California, Berkeley alumnus. Zealot to television shows, gay icons & the Entertainment World. Oh, and shirtless footballers, too.
My televisual obsessions include: Cougar Town, Archer, Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black, Mindy Project, Girls, AbFab, Miranda, Veep, The Good Wife, 30 Rock, Dexter, True Blood, The Golden Girls, Game of Thrones, AHS and of course The Real Housewives.
Portugal are my favorite football team. Ronaldo and Raul Meireles are my favorite footballers.
My dream: creating my own series.
Or publishing a book.
Currently, I'm Director/Editor for RedCarpetTips.com. And I'm a Bilingual Copy Editor for a Medical Company. I also teach English for said company. I'm fluent in French, Portuguese, Spanish.
Zooey Deschanel for New Girl. Really?
Over Mindy Kaling, star of The Mindy Project…
…and Cougar Town's Courteney Cox (who has been nominated).
Also, Jacqueline Bisset for Dancing on the Edge & Janet McTeer for The White Queen. I’ve never heard of Bisset or either show.
No Maggie Smith…
or Scandal's Bellamy Young?! Lame.
Helena Bonham Carter for Burton & Taylor in the Lead Actress for a Mini-Series/TV Movie.
& in the Lead Actress, Drama category, Tatiana Maslany for Orphan Black.
American Horror Story: Coven & Jessica Lange in the Mini-series categories.
The Good Wife picked up a nod for Best Drama Series…
…along with Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles for Lead Actress and Supporting Actor, respectively.
Kerry Washington for Scandal (she was also nominated for a SAG).
Orange is the New Black picked up a single nomination for its leading lady, Taylor Schilling. (NO Kate Mulgrew?!)
Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) dismissing Fiona Goode’s (Jessica Lange) witch hunter problem on Coven.
Marvel’s Agents of Shield — I was looking forward to this series, unfortunately I found myself bored. If only hawkeye would make an appearance…
Super Fun Night — I wanted to like this show so bad because Rebel Wilson is hilarious. In fact she’s the only reason I tuned, in fact the show feels forced when she’s not on screen.
New Girl — I still love my Schmidt, but the Jess and Nick romance has ruined it. I’ve only slightly giggled this season. And don’t get me started on Winston.
American Dad — Maybe the first few episodes of this season were just meant to be unfunny? But even Roger was mediocre. Sigh.
I kinda, sorta still watch these:
Once Upon A Time — Neverland? I’m over it. Peter Pan? Same. I’m only along for the ride because I want more Ariel less Lost Boys.
Modern Family — Since season three, I sporadically watch an episode or two but it lost its mojo. I find it stale and at times recycled.
Glee — Is it possible for a show to jump the shark twice? I think Glee did, and then some. Now, I still watch, because I enjoy all the New York scenes. I’m invested in the original characters. But I can’t say I root for the newbies or the storylines or Tina.
Supernatural — I’m always a season behind because I wait for the DVD release. Sue me.
The Vampire Diaries — Season five started out a bit slow, but I’m about seven episodes behind. I miss Damon, it’s time.
Bob’s Burgers — I watched two episodes for the first time, and I fell in love with Tina.
Vera — Brenda Blethyn plays a detective. Even if it’s only half as good as Dama Mirren’s Prime Suspect, sign me up! Plus, a cutie named David Leon co-stars.
Orphan Black — I heard/read that Tatiana is so good people thought seven actresses played the clones. Sounds like The Tatiana Maslany Show.
Breaking Bad — Now that it’s over (and on Netflix), I can see what the fuss was about.
