Intro for January 14, 2016
They’re calling it a reunion. The Friends reunion. And Twitter went apesh-t over it yesterday. But is it really a reunion if they don’t know if all of them will actually be together? James Burrows will be honoured by NBC on a primetime special during February sweeps. He directed several episodes of Friends, including the pilot. So at the Winter TCA yesterday, NBC chair Robert Greenblatt revealed that the Friends will “reunite” for the event...but then clarified that:
“I’m hoping all six will be in same room at same time; I’m not sure we can logistically pull it off.”
So, again, is it really a reunion if four of them are sitting together and two others have sent in their remarks via video message?
Anyway, Oscar nominations today. When Leo says later that his publicist/agent/manager/mom woke him up to tell him that he got called, I will believe it. That nomination has been secure for months. More nomination analysis through the day.
Yours in gossip,
PS. I am Slytherin, proudly. Our house flag is flying at half-mast today.
