I’m on GRITtv, talking about the Oscars

Fun! I love being on the tee-bee! Not! Man, that TV makeup feels like you’ve been slathered in plaster.

I do love talkin’ ’bout the movies, though…

This is the whole episode. I’m told there will later be a clip of only the Oscar stuff. TWO MINUTES LATER: And here it is already.

  • You’re famous on the TV!

    Very interesting discussion. Nice to hear your voice to go along with your opinions! B)

  • LaSargenta

    Interesting panel! And, aside from the makeup, I hope you enjoyed it. Were there any interesting off-camera conversations?

  • Dokeo

    I do wish the host had let anyone — but especially you, MaryAnn – finish their points. Or even their sentences.

    That being said, you did great! But I had big-time cognitive dissonance, because you don’t sound how I imagined you from your writing. It’s a bit odd, like when you see a really well-done movie version of a favorite book, but the character’s voices don’t fit. I guess I thought that you’d sound both more New York-y and more nebbish-y.
    Good lesson on the dangers of assumptions and stereotypes, I guess.

  • MaryAnn

    I had a great time, and yes, the other panelists and I had all sorts of interesting movie conversation while we were getting our makeup done! But probably nothing that anyone who reads this site regularly hasn’t already heard me say.

    I can assure you, Dokeo, that I sound very New York. I just don’t sound Noo Yawk, like Fran Dreischer or something… but then again, many New Yorkers do not sound like that.

    Famous on the TV? Er, not so much. But I did it for the practice in front of the camera — I’ve done one or two of these before, but it’s always better with practice — and for the chance to reach some people who might not have heard of me before. More traffic is always a good thing.
