The Heart-less Déjà Vu Emmy Awards



Well, I guess Emmy voters were not that impressed with HBO's wonderful adaptation of The Normal Heart. Thank God it won Outstanding Television Movie, but if the Emmys hadn't separated the Miniseries and Television Movie categories this year, I bet Fargo might have received the award, leaving The Normal Heart to go home empty-handed. Writer Larry Kramer, director Ryan Murphy, and actors Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer and Julia Roberts all deserved to win in my opinion.



Now let's move on to another gripe of mine. Last night while I was watching the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, I got a disappointing case of déjà vu as so many previous winners won yet again. Here is a list of the repeat winners:

Groovy Giveaway: Judy Garland on Judy Garland: Interviews and Encounters



Courtesy of Chicago Review Press, this week I'm giving away two copies of Randy L. Schmidt's book, Judy Garland on Judy Garland: Interviews and Encounters, which explores the legend's life in her own words.

"It's going to be one hell of a great — everlastingly great — book with humor, tears, fun, emotion and love," Judy Garland said of her plans to tell her life story. But she died at the age of 47 before seeing it through. Judy Garland on Judy Garland is the closest we will likely come to experiencing and exploring the legend's planned autobiography. Collecting and presenting the most important Garland interviews and encounters that took place between 1935 and 1969, this work opens with her first radio appearance under contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and concludes with her last known interview, one taped for Radio Denmark just months before her death. What makes this collection unique is that it places Judy in the role of storyteller. She wrote a number of essays for various publications and sat for countless print, radio and television interviews. These and the other autobiographical efforts she made are proof that Judy Garland wanted her story told in her own words. Finally, 45 years after her death, here it is.

To enter to win this Groovy Giveaway, email your name and address to deepdishdrama@aol.com. Winners must have a US mailing address, and entries close at midnight on Thursday, August 28 (CST).

Web Series Worth Watching: Meet the bears of the new gay series, Barba Rija (Rough Beard)



Web Series of the Week: Barba Rija (Rough Beard)
Written and directed by André Murraças, Barba Rija (Rough Beard) is the first Portuguese gay web series about bears (with English subtitles provided). Its premise is similar to the popular American comedy, Where the Bears Are - three furry gay friends living together in Lisbon - but instead of a murder mystery, we will just be following their romantic and personal adventures. The first two episodes introduce us to Pedro (who decides to make a surprising change in his life after breaking up with his boyfriend), Ursão (who meets a young man with some unexpected news), and António (who is secretly in love with Ursão). So far I'm enjoying this new series, and I look forward to seeing what happens next to its interesting trio of men.
