Game Shows

One of my favorite things about Hulu is that it allows you to go back and binge on recently released seasons of shows. I’m a HUGE fan of game shows, and there were several networks that decided to revive old shows or create new ones to put contestants and celebrities to the test. Many of these shows were released this summer and are still available on Hulu, and new episodes of some will be released coming up around the holidays. Here’s a list of all the good ones you are able to find:

To Tell The TruthTo Tell The Truth
Hosted by Anthony Anderson, this show involves a celebrity guest panel and hilarious commentary from Anthony’s mother. Each episode, a new panel of celebrities will be faced with three individuals who all claim a title or talent, but only one of them is telling the truth. The panel must correctly identify which two are imposters, and the one who is least successful must endure an embarrassing punishment.

Match GameMatch Game
Another celebrity guest panel based show, this game involves six icons who will give answers in hopes of helping two contestants who are competing for a monetary prize. Host Alec Baldwin will read a joke, but one word will be missing from the punch line. The contestant will have to give their answer for the missing word in hopes of matching with the most celebrities, who have written their answers down on slips of paper. The contestant with the most matches will then go on to play more word matching games in attempts to multiply the prize money.

Celebrity Family FuedCelebrity Family Feud
Just like regular Family Feud, but with the added hilarity of embarrassing celebs and their families. The premise of the show is the same – polls are conducted to find the most popular answers to silly questions. The contestants must then attempt to name all the popular answers to the question that are listed on the board. The winning team goes on to play ‘Fast Money’, where two contestants from the team must name what they think is the top answer to 5 questions in rapid fire for a chance to win all the money.

100000 Pyramid$100,000 Pyramid
“Paper, snow, a ghost!” If you’ve seen that episode of Friends, then you already know. If not, this is now hosted by Michael Strahan and involves two celebrity guests each teaming up with a contestant to get to the winner’s circle. The teams take turns picking a category, and they then have to get their partner to name the seven things listed for them in that category one at a time. The most points makes it to the winner’s circle, where they then name items within a theme to get their partner to guess the category. I’m sure you can guess the prize at the end.

Hollywood Game NightHollywood Game Night
There are so many games within this game show that I would never be able to describe them all. Jane Lynch invites celebrity guests over to her “Hollywood Mansion”, where they team up with “regular people” to create two teams. They go through a variety of silly games to find a winning team, who then goes on to win money by playing the Celebrity Name Game. Celebrity contestants are always changing and always highly entertaining.

Ellens Game of GameEllen’s Game of Games
Who doesn’t need more Ellen in their life?! Ellen never fails to deliver the best, goofiest, hilarious entertainment. She chooses studio audience members to compete in several silly games for a chance to play “Know or Go” – where they are asked questions for a chance to win the grand prize. The games are always changing, always fun, and always full of laughs.

Beat ShazamBeat Shazam
Pretty simple concept here – name that song as fast as you can! Contestants have to be faster not only than Shazam, but also faster than the other contestants. (For those who don’t already know, Shazam is an app that shows you the title and artist of a song based on audio that is playing.) Jamie Foxx is the host and has the help of his daughter, Corinne as the DJ.

Love ConnectionLove Connection
YAAAS ANDY COHEN! He is so perfect for the host of this show to get all the juicy details. This show attempts to find love between contestants. They set up one individual on three dates with three different people prior to the show, and then they talk about how it went with Andy. They rate each other based on first impressions, show clips and selfies taken, and find out what went wrong, of course. After getting the dish from all three, one of them is chosen to go on a second date. The only twist is that in the beginning, the audience chooses one of the three options, and if the contestant picks the same person, they win a monetary prize. Love and money!

2018 Emmy Award Winners (main event)

emmysThe 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards have arrived! I was able to tune in briefly to see the arrivals and red carpet looks before the main programming. Tiffany Haddish was seen commenting on her colorful dress after having won her Emmy award last night, mentioning that she’s always just having fun. Dynamic Duo Chrissy Teigen and John Legend walked hand-in-hand, making jokes about pronouncing their names. And Taraj P. Hensen, among many others, were seen looking beautiful and entering the venue.

The evening started out with a musical number attempting to celebrate our efforts with diversity and the social movements, which included all our favorite icons, from RuPaul, to John Legend, Kristen Bell, and many SNL cast members. michal and collinCollin Jost and Michael Che then were introduced and began delivering their comedy and hellos to the “thousands of people watching in the audience and the hundreds watching at home.” They noted that Netflix received the most nominations of the night, which they joked probably made networks nervous… probably not a joke.  Netflix currently has over 700 original shows, clearly reshaping what is considered “primetime television”.

Michael Che then highlights the issues with diversity on TV that were discussed in the opening number. Many reboots of our favorite shows will include a more diverse cast in the upcoming TV season, including a Latino Magnum PI and Latina cast of Charmed. After some quick laughs, the awards were then given for the Comedy nominations!

Henry Winkler (Barry)Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Henry Winkler (Barry)
Nominations: Louie Anderson (Baskets), Alec Baldwin (Saturday Night Live), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), Tony Shalhoub (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live)

Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
Nominations: Zazie Beetz (Atlanta), Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live), Betty Gilpin (GLOW), Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live), Laurie Metcalf (Roseanne), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace)

Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series: Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
Nominations: Pamela Adlon (Better Things),  Allison Janney (Mom), Issa Rae (Insecure), Tracee Ellis Ross (Black-ish), Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie)

Bill HaderOutstanding Leading Actor in a Comedy Series: Bill Hader (Barry)
Nominations: Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Ted Danson (The Good Place), Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Donald Glover (Atlanta), William H. Macy (Shameless)

Other awards that were given in the Comedy category:
Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series: Amy Sherman Paladino (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series: Amy Sherman Paladino (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)

An important message was quickly thrown in at the end of Rachel Brosnahan’s thank you – a reminder to VOTE this November! However, the irony became apparent at this point in the program that although the cast sang of diversity on television in the opening song and dance, all of the award winners at this point so far have been white. This was of course highlighted by Michael Che, who also called everyone out for not thanking Jesus in their speech. (Isn’t like, half of Hollywood Jewish? Just saying.) Next up, Limited Series or Movie nominations!

Merritt Wever (Godless)Outstanding Supporting Actress in Limited Series or Movie:  Merritt Wever (Godless)
Nominations: Sara Bareilles (Jesus Christ Superstar), Penelope Cruz (The Assassination of Gianni Versace), Judith Light (The Assassination of Gianni Versac), Adina Porter (American Horror Story: Cult), Letitia Wright (“Black Museum”, Black Mirror)

Jeff Daniels (Godless)Outstanding Supporting Actor in Limited Series or Movie: Jeff Daniels (Godless)
Nominations: Brandon Victor Dixon (Jesus Christ Superstar), John Leguizamo (Waco), Ricky Martin (The Assassination of Gianni Versace), Edgar Ramirez (The Assassination of Gianni Versace), Michael Stuhlbarg (The Looming Tower), Finn Wittrock (The Assassination of Gianni Versace)

Regina King (Seven Seconds)Outstanding Leading Actress in Limited Series or Movie: Regina King (Seven Seconds)
Nominations: Jessica Biel (The Sinner), Laura Dern (The Tale), Michelle Dockery (Godless), Edie Falco (Law & Order: Menendez Murders), Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story: Cult)

Nominations: Antonio Banderas (Genius), Benedict Cumberbatch (Patrick Melrose), Jeff Daniels (The Looming Tower), John Legend (Jesus Christ Superstar), Jesse Plemons (Black Mirror: USS Callister)

Other awards that were given in the Limited Series or Movie category:
Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series or Movie: William Bridges and Charlie Brooker (USS Callister)
Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series or Movie: Ryan Murphy (The Assassination of Gianni Versace)

The highlight of this stretch was of course, the wonderful and beautiful legend that is Betty White. 24 Emmy nominations, 8 of which she won the award, and at 96 years old looks amazing to tell the tales. Betty steals the hearts of viewers everywhere with her charm and her humor delivered in the sweet, high pitched shaky voice. Don’t ever leave us, Betty – we love you! Other note here that made me laugh is the lack of voice that Leslie Jones will have tomorrow after screaming for Regina King while announcing her win. Finally, some of that diversity you all were talking about. Michael Che was again quick to point this out, followed by rolling a digital short where he hands out Emmy trophies to black actors and actresses from shows such as Family Matters, The Jeffersons, and the Wayans Bros. There is a clear and present theme to tonight’s program.

Awards given in the Variety Special category:
Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special: John Mulaney (Kid Gorgeous at Radio City)
Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special: Glenn Weiss (The Oscars)

Stop everything! Glenn Weiss used his time for his acceptance speech to let his lovely lady know that the reason that he doesn’t like to call her his girlfriend, is because he wants to call her his wife! She then was ushered onto the stage and Glenn gave a very relatable speech before sliding a family heirloom on her finger as she excitedly nodded yes. Cute another hilarious reaction from Leslie Jones and all the tears in the audience and probably across America. Next was a beautiful ode to all the souls we lost this year from the entertainment industry, as the voice of Aretha Franklin played. And up next, the Drama nominations!

Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones)Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama Series: Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones)
Nominations: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones), Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale), David Harbour (Stranger Things), Mandy Patinkin (Homeland) Matt Smith (The Crown)

Thandie Newton (Westworld)Outstanding Supporting Actress in Drama Series: Thandie Newton (Westworld)
Nominations: Alexis Bledel (The Handmaid’s Tale), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Vanessa Kirby (The Crown), Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale)

Matthew Rhys (The Americans)Outstanding Leading Actor in Drama Series: Matthew Rhys (The Americans)
Nominations: Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Jason Bateman (Ozark), Ed Harris (Westworld), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld)

Claire Foy (The Crown)Outstanding Leading Actress in Drama Series: Claire Foy (The Crown)
Nominations: Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Keri Russell (The Americans), Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld)

Other awards that were given in the Drama category:
Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series: Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg (The Americans)
Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series: Stephen Daldry (The Crown)

Alright, we’re getting to the end here. Before wrapping up with the last of the awards, there is a quick look back at how far the Emmy Awards has come, presented by the Chairman of the Academy, Hayma Washington. And finally, the big winners!

RuPaul's Drag RaceOutstanding Reality-Competition Program: RuPaul’s Drag Race
Nominations: The Amazing Race, American Ninja Warrior, Project Runway, Top Chef, The Voice

Saturday Night LiveOutstanding Variety Sketch Series: Saturday Night Live
Nominations: At Home With Amy Sedaris, Drunk History, I Love You America With Sarah Silverman, Portlandia, Tracey Ullman’s Show

Last Week Tonight With John OliverOutstanding Variety Talk Series: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

The Assassination of Gianni VersaceOutstanding Limited Series: The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Nominations: The Alienist, Godless, Genius, Patrick Melrose

 The Marvelous Mrs. MaiselOutstanding Comedy Series: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Game of ThronesOutstanding Drama Series: Game of Thrones
Nominations:  The Americans, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This Is Us, Westworld

I think the overall message from tonight is to celebrate the strides that we have made in diversity and representation, but recognize that there is a long way to go. You have to look back to go forward. But hey – here’s to some truly great television!

The Bechdel Test

One of my best friends, Kelly is a graphic designer in the entertainment industry and keeps me up to date on upcoming movies, television theories, and of course celebrity news and gossip. She has lived in LA for the past two years and is currently transitioning to NYC. Her experiences working in this industry and living in LA has been awesome to follow and I’m sure she will have a lot of success in New York as well. You can find her portfolio and blog at www.kellyohara.com.

While reading through her blog posts about upcoming movies and lovable TV characters, I found a post where she explained The Bechdel Test. This feminist test consists of 3 rules in which a film must meet in order to pass:

  • The film must have at least two female characters with names.
  • The two female characters must have dialogue.
  • The dialogue must be about something other than a man.

It sounds simple enough, but within Kelly’s blog post was over a dozen movies that didn’t really pass. She often writes about how women are represented and recognized on screen, and promotes strong female characters with meaningful storylines. To view her original post, click HERE!

My boyfriend and I are frequent movie goers, so I decided to apply this test to the 5 movies released in 2018 that we have seen so far. (Don’t worry – no spoilers!)

205px-Rampage_(film)

Rampage: Kinda sorta passes.
While the movie technically passes, there isn’t a lot of female interaction in general here. There’s a couple of key scenes where the females on opposing sides come face to face, but that’s pretty much it. However, the women are intelligent and highly educated, so that’s something.

A_Quiet_Place_film_posterA Quiet Place: Definitely passes.
The four main characters consist of a mother, father, daughter and son and there is plenty of dialogue that includes the women- despite the fact that that dialogue is in sign language. The family is living in a silent world and the daughter is deaf, but she plays a detrimental part in the plot’s conclusion. Both the mother and daughter are innovative leaders, and I wouldn’t say that typical gender roles apply here. Everyone is equal, and everyone does what they have to in order to protect each other. The movies itself is amazing and I highly recommend.

portrait_incredibleAvengers Infinity War: Just barely passes. – This was disappointing. There are a ton of strong female characters in this movie – why didn’t any of them talk to each other?! The only reason that this movie passes at all is because of one all-female fight scene that – while pretty badass – was also pretty short. It was also annoying that every single female character had an on-screen love interest, which largely drove their side storylines. I won’t even talk about the role of Iron Man’s nagging wife… like I said, disappointing.

5a5c753ac8049Red Sparrow: Passes. – Truthfully, this movie didn’t portray men very well. They are weak creatures in the eyes of the Russian women, and can easily be taken down once that weakness is found. The women are powerful, manipulative, and stealthy. However, the movie had more rape scenes than I was prepared for and definitely showed a side of Russian culture that feminists may not agree with. So.. the movie passes, but there’s a lot more to be explored here.

MV5BZjA5MjZkNmQtNmI1ZS00M2RiLWFlMmUtNGU1ZjA4YTA0NjliXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNTM3MDMyMDQ@._V1_UY268_CR9,0,182,268_AL_I Feel Pretty: Passes. – Amy Shumer has done a lot for the feminist movement with her stand up comedy, but this movie is more family-friendly than her normal content. Aside from one quick sex scene in which Amy’s character is looking at herself in the mirror, this is a movie you could watch with young girls. It sends a great message – you’re as attractive as you feel! Women are always comparing ourselves to each other and highlighting our flaws, when confidence is all we really need. It shouldn’t be a surprise that this movie passes.

Women face challenges in every industry – whether it’s the pay gap, unequal recognition, or lack of opportunities. And by bringing attention to these issues, we can start to fully address them.

So challenge yourself to apply this test to the next movie you watch! Especially films that have recently been released. Lx7JYlnK_400x400(And if this idea has really caught your interest, I recommend listening to the women on The Bechdal Cast Podcast analyze all your favorite movies and why they do or don’t pass.)

The Five Love Languages

51ItBwnbJ6L._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_

by Gary Chapman

READ THIS BOOK. Take the quiz. And read this book.

This book addresses the fact that different things hold different levels of importance to different people. An act that you consider small may be monumental to your partner. There are so many different ways to communicate, and its important to understand which languages means the most to both you and the person that you love.

5 Love Languages:

Words of Affirmation

Quality Time

Acts of Service

Physical Touch

Giving Gifts

I took the quiz and made Ryan (my boyfriend) take it as well prior to reading the book. Just looking at the five love languages, I could spot mine right away: Words of Affirmation. I mean, I was a Communications major… words are important to me. Still, I took the quiz and was validated in my suspicions. Ryan’s answers were surprising in some ways.

My Responses:                          Ryan’s Responses:

9 Words of Affirmation           8 Quality Time

7 Physical Touch                       8 Words of Affirmation

7 Quality Time                           7 Acts of Service

6 Acts of Service                        4 Physical Touch

1 Receiving Gifts                       3 Receiving Gifts

The book speaks about spouses, but I don’t think this applies only to married people, or even just people in relationships. I think that the way you communicate in love says a lot about who you are and can help you to learn more about yourself and your relationships.

I’ve learned that I am extremely sensitive to words. When Ryan and I are able to communicate well and tell each other all these nice things, I feel good. And on the flip side, if words exchanged are negative, I hold onto them for a long time. Luckily, my need for Words of Affirmation is frequently met through meaningful text messages, small notes, and daily “I love you”s. I still think it’s important for Ryan to recognize that Words of Affirmation is my primary love language for whenever we get into fights or arguments. Knowing that words are important to me means that he can say things like “I’m sorry” and “Everything is fine” a few times and my demeanor will drastically change. I am definitely influenced largely by what is said to me.

Even though Ryan’s top two are tied, I think that Quality Time suits him best. It means a lot to him when we share experiences together or spend time doing things at home. Since Receiving Gifts clearly doesn’t hold a lot of significance to either of us, a lot of my birthday and Christmas presents involved tickets to something. We also enjoy doing small, cheap dates on Friday nights such as dinner and/or the movies. I know that planning and spending time together is something that means a lot to him (and myself as well). On the flip side, he gets upset when we are together but I am not present. There are nights where I will fall asleep early, and the next day he will tell me that I was a zombie. I try not to spend too much time on my phone when we are out or on a date, except for taking a couple pictures for Snapchat.

I would love to dive more into what makes Ryan happy after he reads the book. He doesn’t enjoy reading as much as I do, but has agreed to read sections of the book that I block off for him.

What’s important to remember is that what will make a difference in a relationship is effort. Ross Mathews has a theory about relationships, saying, “You need to meet me 100% at the 50 yard line.” Both parties need to be willing to say, Hey, I care about you and our relationship and doing what I can to make it a good one. I’m lucky to have this, but the author of the book is a marriage counselor and often talks about his theories saving marriages. I definitely think it’s possible to apply his theories to positively influence your relationship (or marriage, or love life or whatever), but only if both parties are willing to put in the effort.

Once the effort is there, a little goes a long way. 

More to come after I block of sections for Ryan and get his feedback. Thanks for reading.
