Post Emmys talk has all come down to, Christina Hendricks golden globes. I knew it would. :)
Indeed, Christina is the no.1 searched for star on the website today. Let’s take a look at headlines concerning Ms. Hendricks. When I lived in the USA, 100% USA media outlets searches would come up first. Today in New Zealand (on Google) British media’s headlines are being fed my way. Um (note to Google), NZ is not a colony of the UK, constitutionally today, so perhaps Google needs to mix up the feedline recommends. We love UK people in NZ, although of the new arrivals, when they get to our shores, they eat more than their fare share of fish, beef and lamb! More so than the average New Zeealander today. We are big Senna Kowhai and Princess Eugenie fans here too, plus their family members. :)
The UK has been given Google preferencing today on Emmys coverage in NZ, more so than Aussie media, (NZ’s closest neighbor and largest economic ally). Anyway, back to Christina’s golden globe headlines post Emmys.
Does Christina Hendricks bust needs its own zip code?–KLG asks. Or, Christina Hendricks gets the gongs out as the stars shine bright at Emmys.–The Sun. Or, the civil approach – Christina Hendricks lets her hair down at Governors Ball–The Daily Mail.
What did Christina Hendricks wear? Another Christina Siriano–on ya! –More at Huffington Post.

Much has been written about TV drama - often producing and attracting the best talent these days of the producers, directors and writers set. There are so many good drama shows being made.
Oscar winner Jane Campion is the latest to bring a TV drama series to the table. The Hollywood Reporter reports from Toronto how Campionwill attend the international television market MIPCOM next month to talk about her first small-screen foray, the new series Top of the Lake.
The New Zealand helmer will participate in MIPCOM’s Creative Talks sessions together with Gerard Lee, the co-writer and co-creator of Top of the Lake.
Definitely not a show for the kids viewing in prime time, the television drama is set in New Zealand and focuses on a police investigation into the disappearance of the pregnant 12-year-old daughter of a local drug lord.
Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss stars together with Holly Hunter, Peter Mullan, David Wenham and Cohen Holloway. Emile Sherman and Iain Canning of See-Saw Films, the team behind The King’s Speech and Shame, are executive producing the series.
Top backing is attached to the series from the BBC, UKTV, The Sundance Channel and BBC Worldwide. Screen Australia, Screen NSW and Flucrum Media Finance all provided financial backing. MIPCOM runs Oct. 8-11 in Cannes, France.
Jane, Hunter and Moss together? Wow! It has hit written all over it.

Sometimes I feel like a waterfall in West Hollywood, that just won’t stop. Where the water comes from within the spirit that feels dry, jaded, tired on grey winters days, ironically on days when it pours with rain – I don’t know.
One thing I do know, is that 2 million innocent children, die each year in our world, on our watch, regardless of what flags we wave above our heads, or what parades we have under them for whatever reasons to gratify our own sense of worth and identity. While our flags flap around in the wind, the lives of these children do too and many die because they don’t have access to clean drinking water. They get sick, their lives and their potential in this world are cut short.
Sometimes I wish, that people who are told and even say themselves that they are Kings & Queens would rise up like the legend of Moses in a dry desert, and take the wooden staff of their generation’s destiny and dare to strike the rock of greed, of apathy, or blindness, of entitlement, of nationalism, of hatred, of extreme and costly ‘paper gangsta’ capitalism, of those attitudes of detachment masked in those nonhuman words ‘that’s them and not us,’ of leader’s pride, human blind spots and prejudices; and our own too judging these leaders who are at best, mirrors of ourselves that we elected in many cases (or, the flip side too of letting go of the paralyzing and crippling fear of extreme loss and grief that inevitably follows in that degree of sudden loss too, it’s all the same constructed coin)–and these royals of the earth would say “enough, let these children go free” and cause water to flow to children they don’t know, whose parents they’ve never seen, whose dreams are more real than us at times or our bank balance or the figure we are told of our paper worth or lack of, or the excitement in our allocated and imagined carbon credit worth too. We are so green thinking these days!
[Excuse the Kerouac-esque lack of punctuating all proper, in that last paragraph].
Then I realise, sh*t, these Kings and Queens are on this blog everyday. They’re you and on a good day – I could be in your good company too. On a good day. Giving the gift of water to someone else is perhaps the most powerful thing we can do in the 2010′s. One of the true signs we have actually evolved with all of enjoyment and claims of new technology et al that have radically changed our lives. Giving water and saying to someone else, “I love you and you are much loved” are two simple yet vital things we can do each day.

Elizabeth Moss the muse of Hollywood’s top rating show, Mad Men rocks out for Venice Magazine. I love Venice Mag for its recognition of Young Hollywood rising stars. Being positioned as a Los Angeles Entertainment and Arts Magazine… They’re cool like that!
