Intro for January 13, 2015
Thanks for joining us yesterday for the Golden Globes recap! And sorry about some of those loading glitches. It was a high traffic day with almost 50 posts and our servers were strained for a couple of hours. As previously mentioned, there was so much content that it had to be spread over 4 pages. So if you’ve not caught up, please scroll down and keep hitting VIEW MORE for all articles.
Also… the Pink Poodle of the Golden Globes?
Really appreciate your help identifying her. Her name is Yola Szajerska-Hayek, a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Google her. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Duana and I really appreciate your emails and tweets, even when you’re mad at us. So keep sending us your thoughts. Next: the Oscar nominations on Thursday and the Critics’ Choice Awards. Gossip High Season continues!
I’m so proud of my friend Dan Levy. He’s the co-creator, producer, writer, and one of the stars of the new show Schitt’s Creek, premiering on CBC tonight and in the US on POP TV (formerly the TV Guide Network) in February.
In Canada you know Dan from MTV. From The Aftershow. Or from Tina Fey’s Admission. Many of you who’ve come to our SMUT Soiree know him as the best dressed guy with, always, the best glasses. And now he and his father, Eugene Levy, are playing father and son, in a show about a rich ass family that’s lost everything and has to move to a hick town and start over. The cast was just at the TCAs last week and the reviews were solid. Even before the premiere, Schitt’s Creek has already been renewed for a second season.
One more thing: Catherine O’Hara is in it. We can’t be friends if you don’t love Catherine O’Hara. And by the way, her wardrobe on this show is sick.
I’ve known Dan a long time. And of course I would support him in whatever he does. But I’m also supporting him now because he’s delivered something wonderful, something all-Canadian but internationally appealing, something worth watching and celebrating.
You did it, Dan.
Yours in gossip,
