I feel so swamped. Trapped. I used to be a fan, but after seeing “A Star is Born’ I was just boiling mad and supremely disappointed in all aspect of it, except the uber drag queen scene in the gay bar at the beginning, where the Lady Herself turns “La Vie En Rose” inside out. I was enchanted. Then Bradley Cooper, who also in incongruously in this particularly outre bar, sees her for the first time and immediately falls in love with her.
A cute meet by a heterosexual couple in a gay bar. OK. That unique. That was special, then a scene in a parking lot at night time was kind of touching and poignant but from there it went down hill. For another HOUR AND A HALF!!!
I posted this on Awardsdaily.com tonight, where some insist I do my best writing ~
I walked into a tony bar tonight and the typical Academy-aged-voter-of-yore was talking and talking and talking about Lady Gaga and that she was going to win Best Actress. I disagreed. But everywhere I turn it’s gagagagagaga -GAG ME! But if the Oscars were voted on TODAY, she’d undoubtedly win. But they aren’t. It’s a long way til January. But TODAY, she’s the Talk-of-the-Town. Can she act? Can she not act? Wasn’t she snubbed once already? Isn’t this just like Bette Middler and “The Rose”?
And Glenn will be lucky if her film is even in theaters by January. She has to sweep all the critics awards to stay in the conversation. Right now the conversation is gagagagagaga. Well, I repeat myself.
Glenn Close, that is, for “The Wife.” Poor Glenn Close. Always a bridesmaid but never a bride. Close, but no cigar.
