Golden Globes 2019: A Golden Rhapsody

Sunday night was the Golden Globes, and I was a surprise of the winners.  Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, best-animated film; Roma for best foreign film, Regina King for If Streets Could Talk; Mahershala Ali for Green Book;  Christian Bale for Vice; Glenn Close The Wife (2017), while Bohemian Rhapsody won for best film and Rami Malek for best actor.

It was an incredible night for all the winners. Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh were incredibly funny, they remind me of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, hosting the Golden Globes. Bob Hope did the same thing poking fun at the celebrities in a good way. These actors and writers study the greats of how to write comedy, and they were funny.

Carol Burnett

Speaking of comedy writing, we have to praise Carol Burnett, a legendary and pioneer of sketch comedy. She had the best comedy writing team and the ensemble of actors and singers to perform on her show in the 1970s. The show won multiple awards — Golden Globes and Emmys.

So they gave Carol Burnett a Lifetime Achievement Award in Television, the Carol Burnett Award. She deserved it.

Plus, the ratings for the show was up from last year.  Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh should host the Oscars in 2019.

Taylor Swift will be in Cats on Broadway this summer of 2019

James Corden for Oscars Host

THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN

Hey, Oscars have you ever consider James Corden, as the Oscars host for 2019. He will be perfect for the job. He’s an actor, singer, and the host his late-night show on CBS. He does a lot of parodies of movies and singers on the show. And funny too.

The night when there was a screw up between La La Land and Moonlight, the next day he did a parody of it, and it was hysterical. He also does crosswalk the musicals and carpool karaoke. His show is an Emmy award winner too.  

By the way, he has hosted the Grammy’s and Tony awards ceremony. Why not the Oscars?

Do you want hot-less emcee for the Oscars in 2019? Bob Hope was the master of the hosting gig for the Oscars when he was alive. (1940 – 1979) you can’t bring up the dead to host, even Johnny Carson. In 1989, there was no host for the Oscars only the announcer announcing who’s coming up on stage.

But you do need a comedian who lightens up the crowd. And since people are so political and don’t like President Trump and what he is doing, that will bring down the ratings. You want the ratings to go up, and the Oscars should be entertaining to watch. Please tell the actors to thank their cat or whoever made them successful in becoming an actor.  Actors deserve their shot of fame and recognition of there work.

Carol Brunetti hosted the show in 1973, is there a possibility for her to do it,  even though she’s getting a special award, for the Golden Globe Awards in 2019.

Please consider James Corden to host the Oscars in 2019, if he says no, oh well. James Corden will be the best host.

A ghost Audition for the X-Factor

What could scare a Simon Cowell? A ghost. The place they were staying at was The Stoneleigh Hotel & Spa in Dallas,Texas for their audition for the X-factor, a new reality talent show coming soon on FOX.  Who ever book him to this place did not know this place was haunted. But this place is absolutely beautiful and luxury rooms and it was built in 1923, the year should have given the PR a clue.

Designed by architect F.J. Woerner in the Beaux Arts style and predominantly built by local contractors, the 11-story concrete fireproof structure adorned with stone, terra cotta, and brick marked the beginning of modern, luxury high rise living in Dallas. At the time, it was the tallest hotel west of the Mississippi offering “fine” views of the city from its prominent suburban address inOak Lawn–“out of the turmoil and dirt of the city.”

Guests socialized in the elegant lobby, women’s sun parlor, and men’s smoking lounge on the first floor. The eleventh floor was a magnificent ballroom/solarium for special functions and a dining room serving the finest continental cuisine overlooking the city. Building amenities included a children’s gymnasium, beauty shop and barbershop, a grocery store in the basement, and The Stoneleigh Court’s own refrigerating plant, radio station, and 40-car parking garage.

Highlighting The Stoneleigh’s long list of notable guests have been such luminaries as Frank Lloyd Wright, Lauren Bacall, Jack Benny, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, The Metropolitan Opera Company, Carol Burnett, Carol Channing, Tom Cruise, Robert Duvall, Darrell Royal, Paul Simon, LeAnn Rimes, and Oliver Stone. The Stoneleigh Hotel & Spa is also member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Historic Hotels of America”.

And I think the celebrities who stayed there have their share of ghost stories too. Simon Cowell was the first to notice when he entered the building, and he was about to be checked into his room. He felt someone was watching him, a presence in the room, like the owner of the place was staring at him and trying to find out who was Simon Cowell and what he was doing in the room and his hotel. Simon Cowell had a weird feeling about this, and his co-worker thought he was a diva and wanted to change hotels. So they did, they change hotels.

This old creepy hotel had renovations done to make it exquisite and beautiful with a lot of features included. It sure is a one stop place one can do anything without leaving the place.
