Jennifer Hudson Became The 17th EGOT When “A Strange Loop” Won The Tony For Best Musical
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.
“A Strange Loop” Sashays To The Top Of The 2022 Tony Award Nominations
The 2021 Tony Awards were as novel as the COVID-19 coronavirus which resulted in a truncated season that left Moulin Rouge star Aaron Tveit as the only actor nominated in his category. *Spoiler alert* He won. But this year, Broadway told that bitch Rona, “we’ll do it live, fuck it!” and came back swinging for the 2022 season. Today, the Tony Award nominations were announced, and sadly, Neil Patrick Harris was snubbed for his role in Inside Inside Edition: The Bill O’Reilly Story: The Musical. But that’s probably because A Strange Loop, the Pulitzer-Prize winning musical by Michael R. Jackson, that has an entire number devoted to reading Tyler Perry for filth, gobbled up 11 nominations including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Book of a Musical, Best Performance in a leading role for newcomer Jaquel Spivey and Best Performance in a Featured role for John-Andrew Morrison. So really, Madea should be on her hands and knees thanking Michael R. for getting her as close to a Tony Award, and a Pulitzer, as she’ll ever get.
Patti LuPone Gave Her Review Of Trump’s Balcony Performance
Last night He Who Must Not Be Named returned from Walter Reed Medical Center, where he was being treated for coronavirus, via helicopter, trundled up the stairs to the White House balcony, took off his mask, and stood there huffing and puffing with all the effortless grace of Vincent D’Onofrio’s cockroach alien guy from Men in Black.
Patti LuPone took one look at that shit, and immediately screamed “Did it better!” The Broadway legend, who’s made her revulsion for the Orange Buffoon well known, compared the post-hospital display to the famous scene from Evita, where First Lady of Argentina Eva Perón stands on her balcony, near death, and addresses her adoring public with the ballad, “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina”. Adoring public? LOL, he wishes.
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!
Open Post: Hosted By The Trailer For Ryan Murphy’s “Hollywood”
Move over Quentin Tarantino, it’s Ryan Murphy’s turn to monkey with Hollywood history! And because it’s Ryan, it features twinks instead of toes. The first full trailer is here for Ryan’s upcoming Netflix Original series, Hollywood. According to Indiewire, the show takes place post WWII and “presents an alternative version of history wherein actors and writers of color are more openly part of the Hollywood studio system,” but apparently, uggos still need not apply. The show stars Darren Criss, Dylan McDermott, Patti LuPone, newcomers David Corenswet and Jeremy Pope, Justin Theroux’s rumored former fling Laura Harrier, Mrs. Sarah Paulson Holland Taylor and Jim Parsons. It also features Jake Picking as Rock Hudson and Queen Latifah as Hattie McDaniel, suggesting that Ryan finally learned the hard way not to fuck with Hollywood legends who are still alive. The show is written and directed by Janet Mock (Pose) and features a gas station where, for the right price, you can get your tank filled up with premium unleaded assoline.
Open Post: Hosted By La LuPone Bringing Back Her Norma Desmond At A Time When We Really Need It
Broadway is closed for business right now, but if you want some all-caps, bolded DRAMA and THEATRICS, go on over to Patti LuPone’s Twitter page. La LuPone’s lair of luxury (aka her basement) has become the premiere theater of the country, because she’s been regularly tweeting videos of the stir crazy theatrics she gets into down there. And yesterday, she got into half Norma Desmond drag to give us scenes from the future Tony award-winning musical extravaganza Sunset Boulevard II: Norma Goes To Reno (working title: North Virginia Street).
