Other than Funny Girl and West Side Story, there are not too many musicals I can sit through. Maybe a Doris Day musical, but most of them are bad. Give me my 40's melodramas with Kate and Bette reading someone, Joan as a nobly suffering masochistic clotheshorse, and Barbara Stanwyck capping someone, and I'm happier than Harvey Fierstein at a Crisco convention.

Are you just talking movie musicals?

Do they beep her out every time Joan swears on Fashion Police? It would be OK if it was just the odd one here and there, but there were whole sentences I missed last night. And they mosaiced the gun at the end as well.

I kind of feel sorry for Lea Michele. Just her name alone and Joan smells blood. :lol:

I find George Katsodopopoudoupolous a bigger waste of space than either Kelly or Giuliana. Although the Paula Abdul stuff was :rofl:

I agree about Lea Michelle. It's her Twitter fans that went ape sh*t, not Lea herself. OK, Lea does go OTT on the red carpet, but that doesn't mean she has a gigantic ego in the way that Joan ranted about. And even if she has a slightly overblown ego, I hate to say it but she has the talent to back it up (unlike some other "A" list stars that walk the red carpet)

I loved seeing Nina Garcia on the panel! More Nina! More Nina!

They did not do that here. Strange, we (the US) are usually more censor happy than Europe. I've never heard the word mosaiced, I assume it is where they pixelate over an offending image.

I think Joan goes overboard, but Lea Michelle does too. She really comes across as a bit ego maniacal. Yes, she's talented, but she is trying too hard to prove she's just too wonderful for words.

:mad: Just. You. Wait.

Smartass, someday they'll remake Francis the Talking Mule, and after a title change to "Frances ...", Melissa will have her dream role and be on the fast track to SUPERSTARDOM!

What does Lea Michele do exactly that makes her ego maniacal?

It's the over the top posing, the hair tossing, and the glances back to make sure every eye is on her.

But if she's on the red carpet, then she's probably doing it for the cameras and the crowds in the stands. I mean it is a bit over-the-top but she is from the theatre ;).

I know not everyone enjoys musicals. To me though, musical numbers, when done well, are just one-of-a-kind. They're just like Westerns, Kung-Fu movies, action films, etc. Just replace the gun slinging, high-flying kung-fu, action sequences, etc. with musical numbers.

I enjoy musicals. I understand that some people think breaking into song is contrived and unnatural. But, as you said, there are many other genres where the plots and sub plots are contrived and don't make sense if you think about it.

Wonder if they'll ever make a movie of Les Miserables. They did a non-musical version, but I'd like to see a musical one. The PBS broadcast Dream Cast performance is wonderful, but it really is not staged. It is long, but I've seen longer movies.

There's actually a movie musical of Les Mis currently in the works.

Hugh Jackman might be playing Jean Valjean :D
