Victoria-Jackson

I object to this piece's argument that Victoria Jackson was kept out of the SNL 40 audience because she is a conservative. There is nothing conservative about her radical beliefs. I mean, they let Sarah Palin in, so that tells you how far off the charts Jackson is politically (and mentally).

She would've been great in the in memoriam.

So Funny It's Not Funny Comments (0)

Betty-White-Bradley-Cooper

Bradley Cooper (looking exactly like Ryan Hansen) laid one on Betty White during an otherwise interminable skit during last night's SNL 40th anniversary special. It was amusing because they really went for it. The kiss, not the show.

The show was...depressing. Not sure why? It just felt like less a celebration than a memorial service, and I think the black-tie crowd lent to that. Paul McCartney sounded really rough, which didn't help.

I think what really killed it for me is that it had a barrage of fragments from so many amazingly funny skits that put me in the mood to actually revisit them, but instead of offering up vintage fun, it would instead focus on unfunny tributes to some of the show's legendary entertainers. I mean, yay, Chris Rock admires Eddie Murphy...but why couldn't there be something funny for Murphy to then do about that?

And the new live stuff mostly sucked. All the celebs in the world don't make unfunny stuff funny.

I did like those short clips, and I have to say that Bill Murray was hysterical singing the love theme from Jaws.

Rolling Stone has a list of the 141 cast members ranked from best to worst. It would be hard to argue that the Top 3 are undeserving (but Mike Myers at #4???), yet I think Bill Murray belongs at the top. Poor Robert Downey Jr.!

I think the special worked as nostalgia but failed as comedy.

RIP Suave, Sexy Louis Jourdan Comments (0)

Jourdan

One of France's last Golden Age stars, Louis Jourdan—so memorable in Gigi (1958)—has died at the ripe old age of 93 in Beverly Hills.

Faye-Dunaway

Jourdan's first film work was in 1939, his last in 1992. In-between, he made for a dashing Bond villain in a not-so-great film from that enduring series, Octopussy (1983). In 1986, he made his final TV appearance, in the campy Faye Dunaway vehicle Beverly Hills Madam (image above).

Madonna

Madonna's first Brit Awards performance in over 20 years will be viewable in the US on Fuse on February 25. PS: Morrissey, the xenophobic crank, isn't happy about it.

Head over to MadonnaTribe for all the final album covers for the various versions of Rebel Heart.

Coming Up Next On EMPIRE... Comments (0)

Empire-jussie-smollett-105

Empire's Jussie Smollett speaks about what's coming up on the hit show:

“What you’re going to see…God, I love Jamal and Michael so much. I love them. Jamal loves Michael and I love Rafael, who plays Michael. We’re so close but you will see Jamal’s changing and that’s the kind of sadness that you see. Michael is going to be there and Michael is going to support him but you see some disagreements and some ups and downs because they’re human and they’re growing and they’re young men in their early 20s but, yeah, Jamal is changing and Michael is a part of Jamal’s reality at this moment. We’ll have to see what ends up happening.”
