G, I was outraged,OUTRAGED when you received no credit for playing the ET. And with no make-up.
Now that is acting! I'm sure that with time and better choices you will be my better. I know it's true darling. I just know it.
Meryl was an inspiration for Jurassic Park. The long crooked nose of seldom violent dinosaurs is an obvious homage, as is the response of awe and horror to the spectacle and mass of the creatures.
Less well known is that the ground breaking animatronics were also modeled after a compilation of Streep's performances.
Oh M, it was a BENEFIT. I see though that your people would never tell you about the concept: lots of fun, but no baubles to win! BENEFIT - for OTHER PEOPLE! Not your thing at all.
How did Martin Short weazel his way in there?
What a brave and beautiful actress. She is so over she's decided to slum with the likes of Kevin Kline and Martin Short.Look has been in the dictionary and it has their pictures under it!Eric Idle has never been relevant if you count being part of a UK comedy show that some snobs ate up with a passion.
R7 = Armistead Maupin
Is M jealous of G because the latter is from a well-heeled New England family whereas Meryl is basically white trash from New Jersey?
Jonathan Groff is fat.
What is the writing on Glenn's arm? Her lyrics??
Meryl, wouldn't that be the same community theatre where you appeared in Trelawny of the Wells, Henry V, and The Seagull? Also, nice of you to donate $1 million to the community theatre. I guess they can now afford a new spotlight.
EW SOUTH PACIFIC review:
[italic]WHOA, NELLIE! Glenn Close knew it was a bit of a stretch for her to play Nellie Forbush, the lovestruck nurse who falls for an older French plantation owner (a role typically played by an ingenue), in ABC's upcoming ''South Pacific'' adaptation. ''It was the hardest thing to get over -- I'm not an ingenue,'' says the 53 year old actress, who decided to make the issue moot by taking the emphasis off of physical features. ''I had this little revelation that my Nellie [wouldn't] really spend a lot of time on what she looks like. That freed me to be who I am.''
It seemed to work: Nobody so much as flinched over at the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization upon seeing the final cut. According to the group's spokesman Bert Fink, ''Mary Rodgers [Richard Rodgers' daughter] says this is the best acted 'South Pacific' she's ever seen.'' As for some of those youthful songs, such as ''A Cockeyed Optimist'' and ''I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair,'' Close says, ''I think you can be a cockeyed optimist no matter what your age. It doesn't mean you're stupid. Nellie makes a decision not to be skeptical about life. She's moved by nature and she keeps herself open to that kind of thing. I thought I could do that.''
Close wasn't so confident about playing another musical legend: She gave a thumbs down to an offer to tackle the starring role in ABC's upcoming production of ''Mame.'' Besides, it was tough enough getting ''South Pacific'' (which costars Harry Connick Jr. and Robert Pastorelli) produced. ABC was nervous about committing to the musical, which received a greenlight before 1997's ''Cinderella'' became a network hit. '''South Pacific' was more expensive than usual,'' says Close of the rumored $14 million budget. ''When you ask people to spend that much money they get nervous. But I must say we've gotten a thousand percent support from them.'' Now, we'll see if the ratings make for an enchanted evening.[/italic]
Glenn as Mame? Interesting.

Whatever became of that MAME TV production? That sentence makes it sound like it was proceeding, Close or no Close.
[quote]Glenn is still the definitive Nellie Forbush.
Except for everyone else who's ever played the role.
[quote]Whatever became of that MAME TV production?
They were going to do it on CBS after Bette Midler did [italic]Gypsy[/italic]. They even asked Angela Lansbury, who insisted she was too old, so she did [italic]Mrs. Santa Claus[/italic] instead. Cher was supposed to do it in the early 2000s, but they never found a script that satisfied Jerry Herman, so it died on the vine. I'd rather they had remade that instead of [italic]Annie[/italic].
