    • SNL just blew the opening Charlie Sheen skit. Going to bed instead of watching this unfunny show. #winning 8 years ago
    • Best idea I've heard so far this week - have Charlie Sheen host next year's Oscars. Highest ratings ever! 8 years ago
    • I still can't believe that Kathryn Bigelow directed Point Break. I am an EFF-BEE-EYE agent. #oscars 8 years ago
    • Wow, first the Globes and now the Oscars fail to recognize Corey Haim. Feldman's gonna be pissed. 8 years ago
    • After loss to #knicks, Miami Heat now 14-15 against teams with a .500 record or better #justsayin 8 years ago

Fischer’s Friday Five

Thanks for the good feedback on the first Fischer’s Friday Five (Top 5 Movies of 2000s). Can’t believe how many people were disappointed that I didn’t include The Departed on the list. I will say that if there was a second tier honorable mention list, it would have made the cut, along with; Best In Show, The Queen, The Bourne franchise, Ocean’s 11, Inglourious Basterds, Traffic, Meet The Parents, Minority Report and Lost In Translation. Sorry Gladiator fans, the movie just hasn’t held up for me over the years.

Speaking of movies, if you haven’t yet voted for the first round of the Funniest Movies of All-Time, um, I guess go vote would be the general point I am trying to make here.

Last week I gave you the best movies of the past decade, so it’s only fitting to move to the small screen and give you the best television shows the past decade had to offer. I have a strong feeling that Joey, According to Jim and the show about the Geico Cavemen are just gonna miss out on cracking the five best.

I’m Fischer, it’s Friday, and here’s my five for the week… Continue reading

Golden Globes Predictions – Television

In case you missed my dartboard-esque movies predictions.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES, DRAMA
Prediction:  Mad Men
If I Had A Vote:  Lost – I’m actually looking forward to the show ending, so I can go back and watch it all over again from the beginning and see what I missed the first time around.

BEST ACTRESS, DRAMA
Prediction:  Glenn Close, Damages
If I Had A Vote:  Kathy Sagal, Sons of Anarchy – amazing job of holding her own on a male-dominated show, completely makes you forget all about here as Peggy Bundy (did you know she was wearing a wig on Married With Children?)

BEST ACTOR, DRAMA
Prediction: Jon Hamm, Mad Men
If I Had A Vote: Hugh Laurie, House – it was great to finally see a more sensitive and vulnerable side of Gregory House this season

BEST TELEVISION SERIES, COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Prediction:  30 Rock
If I Had A Vote:  Glee and Modern Family (tie) – hard to choose between two refreshing new shows.  Glee is unlike anything the networks have aired before (and I’m not counting Cop Rock) and Modern Family has much of the same characteristics and delivery as Arrested Development had (RIP, sniff sniff).

BEST ACTRESS, COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Prediction: Tiny Fey, 30 Rock
If I Had A Vote:  same – pretty weak crop to choose from, not much competition

BEST ACTOR, COMEDY OR MUSICAL
Prediction: Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
If I Had A Vote:  Same – again, put Robert Duvall in this role, and it’s not a very funny show.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Prediction: Chloe Sevigny, Big Love
If I Had A Vote:  Jane Lynch, Glee – this “cocktail waitress on an oil rig” is what has made the show and given it depth beyond all the singing.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Prediction: John Lithgow, Dexter
If I Had A Vote:  Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn (tie), Lost – it’s going to be a sad day when Benjamin Linus and John Locke are no longer battling for control of the Island and its people.

BONUS – RANDOM PREDICTIONS
Australian Open Men’s Winner – Novak Djokovic
Australian Open Women’s Winner – Kim Clijsters
