Paging Daniel Henney

Paging Daniel Henney.
(God, I hope that works)

Yobo/say/oh Handsome.
Sa rang hab ni da.

Fate is so cruel…..I lived in Korea for three flippin’ years and never saw anything this Delicious….(okay, well I do love Korean food and crave Baetchu Kimchee, Chop Chae, well, you name it:—I’m writing this for Mrs. Henney’s benefit: as in ‘HIS MOM’…..). Could I babysit Danny?

Wow.

I watched Shanghai Calling last night (a few times) and the Delicious Mr. Henney plays the role of Sam Chao–a Chinese American Lawyer whose New York Firm ships him off to head their Chinese Office.

The film took a Best Actor award (for Daniel Henney) at the 2012 Shanghai International Film Festival, and Best Screenwriter (for Daniel Hsia) at the 2012 Shanghai International Film Festival as well.

Daniel Henney also won a Best Actor award at the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival.

Of course, one could say that it’s racist to opt for a Korean Actor to play a Chinese Actor…..but, this is nothing new to the silver screen.

In 2005’s ‘Memoirs of a Geisha‘ Chinese actress Ziyi Zhang plays the Japanese Lead. The Japanese and Chinese have always found “comfort” in one another…..(as is evidenced by episodes documented in Nanjing).

I am now scouring the internet for a DVD of the Korean Drama My Lovely Sam-soon :내 이름은 김삼순. It is a South Korean television drama series which was aired on MBC from June 1, 2005 to July 21, 2005 and touted as the Korean version of Bridget Jones Diary. Hopefully, I nab a copy that will play in my ‘region’—Hey, I don’t even need subtitles–just Freeze Frame. (^0^)

Mr. Henney’s most recent role is as ‘Phil Hayes’ in the recently released film ‘Last Stand.’

That said, I wonder if I like Daniel enough to sit through an hour and 47 minutes of Schwarzenegger? I mean sure—California had to manage it longer–but they voted. And, well….LONG SUFFERING MARIA……? Never mind.

Well, I guess this will be the acid test of Our “New Love.”
Pass the Chigae.

And the Winner is……

No Envelope needed:
Charlize Theron in Dior.

Frankly, I’d be okay stopping right there—but, in the interest of commentary–Onward.

It makes me want to re-think my extensions. My last ‘pixie’ cut was in 1967. I was six.
Please–Stop doing math.

Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, American Dad) took the helm as this year’s Award Show Host replacing Billy Crystal who ostensibly made some off colour racist remarks at last year’s award show—admittedly, didn’t watch.

Mr. Crystal would have had a a ‘field day’ with the material ‘presented’ at this year’s show.

As for Seth….well, he seemed a bit ‘UNANIMATED?’—-I would have preferred ‘Brian’ the dog.

and, Argo–well it’s not just a cornstarch anymore…

You know who I feel bad For?
Jennifer Lopez.
(I mean, so what if Affleck’s a jerk—this has to burn.)

Overall, a very unsurprising Evening—save for confirmation that there is absolutely no decorum left in the White House.

Surprise? Well, not really.

I mean–sure–the Kennedy’s loved to wallow with the Glitter Litter…..

However, somehow having ‘First Lady’ (You can dress her up, but you can’t take her out’) Michele Obama join Jack Nicholson via live feed to announce the Winner of the award for 2013’s Best Picture…well, let’s just say that as the line between Church and State may have blurred a bit over the past few years– it might do some good to reinforce a few other boundaries, too.

Please? Pretty Please with steak and arugula on top? (not my choice, either, Michele—but it’s hard to maintain your apparently size 14 figure on a meal of rocket salad…so I’ll meet you at Steak and Shake girlfriend). What’s next? HRH Queen Elizabeth II presenting the BAFTAS? I’m sure that The Duke of Edinburgh could supply a few quotable quips.

You know Barak, you might want to tamp this one down a little….if you aren’t too busy getting pointers on….your ‘Swing(?)’ from Tiger. (Pun Intended)

Daniel Day Lewis unsurprisingly took Oscar for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln. Joaquin visibly shrugged off his nomination only too well aware that while his performance in ‘The Master’ may have been the Most riveting of his career, he didn’t stand a chance in Hell of getting the statuette for it. Sad, but true. Tough crowd.

Of Note: Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence also wore Dior. Just not as well, but she has time on her side.

Personally, I like her more since she almost tumbled (again) on her face while ascending the stairs en route to the stage for her acceptance of her Best Actress Award. Predictions? Well, I’m seeing a stint (or is that splint) in traction in her Future. Perhaps she (and I) should consider flats as an option.

Sacha Strikes Again

Okay, well–BELIEVE IT OR NOT–The Kazakhstan National Shooting Team received THEIR Gold medals at a ceremony in Kuwait to the tune of the Kazakhstan National Anthem as parodied by BORAT.

Needless to say, the team was not amused (well, visibly) and the awards ceremony was REdone with the proper downloaded version.

As for Mr. Baron Cohen–I hope his flights do not follow paths over Kazakh airspace anytime soon.

The spoof song praises Kazakhstan for its superior potassium exports and for having the cleanest prostitutes in the region.

Sing Along!!!!

The film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, released in 2006, follows Baron Cohen’s character, the journalist Borat Sagdiyev, as he travels to the US and pursues the actress Pamela Anderson.

The film outraged people in Kazakhstan and was eventually banned in the country.
