Here is to you Christopher Nolan

So the Oscars are coming up sooner than you think. In fact, they are only a few hours away, and one thing I would like to say before they kickoff the ceremony is “Give some slack to Christopher Nolan!” I would like to see the director of "The Dark Knight", which was one of the best films of the year, nominated for Best Director at the Oscars. The Dark Knight was a fantastic film that destroyed the box office, and it was manned by an equally fantastic director. Nolan turned The Dark Knight into one of the best Batman movies in decades! (Although, some of his fans think he is a lunatic, but that’s beyond the point.) His work should have been rewarded with an Oscar Nomination.

However, I should mention that there was some tough competition for Nolan in that category. People like Danny Boyle, Gus Van Sant, and oh yeah Ron Howard are in the ring, so it must have been a hard call. But all that aside more often than not it seems that during award season action movies get the shaft. (I laughed at that line. I’m so immature. :)
But I should note that Christopher Nolan was nominated for Directors Guild of America award for his accomplishments, so it’s not a total loss.

QATFYG: Should Nolan have been nominated? How do you rank The Dark Knight as a film? And what’s next for Christopher Nolan?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
