When A Strange Loop took home the Tony award for Best Musical at last night’s Tony Awards, Jennifer Hudson became the 17th quadruple threat to earn the highly coveted PMTAOEE, better known as the Philip Michael Thomas Award for Overall Excellence in Entertainment, even better known as the EGOT. And she didn’t even have to break a sweat or unhinge her jaw for it! Jennifer won her Tony as a producer of the Pulitzer Prize-winning show and shares the Tony with RuPaul Charles, Don Cheadle, Alan Cumming, Ilana Glazer, Mindy Kaling, and Billy Porter among others. But thanks to her 2021 Daytime Emmy for an animated short called Baba Yaga, she was able to close the loop and put a PeriodT! On her EGO status.
Open Post: Hosted By Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber Declaring That He Hated The “Cats” Movie So Much That He Got A Dog
Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber hated Cats as much as the rest of us even though he’s responsible for it too. Although, he’s differentiating between the movie version and his stage production. And in a profile for Variety, Sir ALW that he was so “emotionally damaged” from the film version of his musical (same) that he went out and got a dog. Welp, he must’ve seen the butthole version!
Andrew Lloyd Webber has more money than God, not to mention every award imaginable––he’s one of 15 EGOTs. He is one of the most successful composers in history, responsible for dozens of huge Broadway musicals, including Cats, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar. And even HE couldn’t turn Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” into anything better than the original.
I don’t have kids so I’m excused from knowing anything about whatever it is Disney has been pumping into the minds of impressionable youth. But apparently, Disney+ has some heavy hitters creating content for housebound children, including newly minted EGOT, Alan Menken. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alan won his first-ever (competitive) Emmy for “best original song in a children’s, young adult or animated program” at yesterday’s Daytime Emmy awards (most of the awards were already presented last month). The song, Waiting in the Wings, is from the animated series Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure. I’m sure Patti LuPone sent him a very nice card that read “While I don’t particularly enjoy your little Disney songs, you are by far the greatest EGOT winner since Robert Lopez,” Robert being the last person to EGOT before Andrew Lloyd Webber in 2018 (along with Tim Rice and John Legend).
The Sunday Times Rich List. A thing I just heard of today. Apparently it’s like the Forbes List, but British. Yay. Ranking ridiculously rich people. Woohoo. There’s a bunch of different categories, so even more multi-millionaires can feel special. These lists include the richest people in Film & Television, Husbands and Wives, Sports Stars, Aristocrats, and more.
Rihanna, who’s lived in London for more than a year, decided to grace the Richest Musicians list with her beauty and glamour, debuting at #3. She’s right behind Andrew Lloyd Weber and Paul McCartney, who are tied at #1. Poor ALW. Now he’s got Patti LuPone AND Rihanna on his ass. Continue reading
Patti LuPone Gave Her Thoughts On “Cats” And Barbra Streisand As Mama Rose On “Watch What Happens Live”
Here’s an easy one: What do Broadway legend Patti LuPone and professional shit-stirrer Andy Cohen have in common?
Answer: Both their Suns are in DRAMA, and their Moons are in SHADE.
This is why I never miss Patti on Watch What Happens Live!
Since recent corona-recoverer Andy knows La LuPone is afflicted by the same curse as Jim Carrey in Liar Liar, he can ask her whatever “messy” (hey, Lil’ Kim and Titus Burgess’ word, not mine) questions he wants and receive golden truth nuggets!
