On the eve of what will be the most radically different Oscar presentation ever, as well as an historical one, in terms of diversity among winners, here is an interview with sure-shot victor, Korean director/writer Lee Isaac Chung (pictured above, with his exultant daughter when his Golden Globe win was announced), about his deeply human and affecting film. His moving, funny account of a Korean family transplanted to a farm in Arkansas has a quiet radiance embuing its every frame (magnificent cinematography by Australian Lachlan Milne) which evokes Jean Renoir’s The Southerner.

happy birthday Shirley Maclaine!

To see What a Way to Go! as a kid at the Kuhio Theater was a definite experience, with its over the top wardrobe for Shirley Maclaine by Edith Head and the titillating image of her “naked” with Dean Martin in a gigantic champagne glass which served as their bed. I remember thinking how dirty it was- weird adult stuff – and how glad I was to be a kid.

Sidney Guilaroff at left also had a field day with the star.

Senate overwhelmingly passes anti-Asian hate crimes bill

The woman pictured above was one of the Atlanta murder victims.

The dingleberry in the cheap ugly suit you see below, in a photo which should have ended his political career, displaying his mentally challenged support for the Capitol insurgents on that black day in American history, is Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, the one dissenting voter against this bill’s passing. No surprise, really, as he is a hateful, racist, dishonest, Trump-following pile of steaming ordure.

In the matter of the 2017 death of a black man, Tory Sanders, who had run out of gas and taken a wrong turn in Missouri and somehow ended up, arrested for no reason and then dead in his jail cell, from cardiac arrest after repeated physical and mental abuse, then Attorney General Hawley decided not to file any murder charges. His reasoning was that Sanders’ attackers had not intended his death, the cause of which was given the bogus term “excited delirium.”

The Ever-Fierce Debi Mazar

An uber-stylish, fun, down-to-earth/REAL, specifically New York and indefatigably cool presence in the world from the 1970s, on….a COVID survivor, as well.

here’s a fun interview with her about her enduringly divine sense of style:


It is 2021 and a Straight Actor will Play Halston

Ewan McGregor as Halston

Ryan Murphy, what the fuck is your problem (besides your cheap tabloid taste in picking projects for your enviably carte blanche career; all envy stopping at their execution)? I do not want to see Jesse Tyler Ferguson portraying John Wayne and I definitely do not want to see a hetero British mediocrity with an expired shelf life playing this influential, important fashion designer. Wasn’t Daniel Day Lewis as “Charles James” enough, already? Christ!

Easy prediction: this show will be rife with club scenes filled with cocaine, drag queens and male hustlers having hysterics and very, very short on Halston’s creative process or his contribution to the history of fashion.

However, if the role of Disco Sally hasn’t been cast, Linda Hunt would be ideal….

here’s the full cast from imdb

The Dominican, openly bisexual model Dilone has been cast as catwalk queen Pat Cleveland.

am surprised and delighted however to see my friend Brian Belovitch is playing Jack Haley Jr.!
