Remembering Matt Palazzolo 1984 - 2017



Matt Palazzolo was a groovy and talented guy who left us much too soon this week. I first became acquainted with him in 2013 when I began featuring his wonderful web series, Bloomers, that he wrote and starred in for three seasons. I also featured him as DEEP DISH's Groovy Guy of the Month in July 2014 (click here to read the interview). His other acting credits include the independent films, You Should Meet My Son! (2010), Real Heroes (2014) and Stone Fruit (2018), and two other web series - Spin the Bottle (2013) and The Couch (2016).

In 2017, Matt directed a music video for Reid Lee’s "Save the Best". He was also an activist who served on West Hollywood's Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board and the Christopher Street West Board of Directors.

Click here to read a lovely tribute from Matt's friend Alex Paris. And below you can watch Matt and Sean Hemeon in a fundraising video for Bloomers and in an episode of The Couch.

The Golden Globes starring Frances "Badass" McDormand and President Oprah



The two highlights for me from last night's 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards were the speeches by Frances McDormand (who deservedly won for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and Oprah Winfrey (who deservedly became the first black woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award). As for Oprah running for President, it was a silly joke last night - but this morning two of her close friends told CNN that she is "actively thinking" about the idea. And I would vote for her in a heartbeat over any Republican. I think she would take the job very seriously and educate herself on foreign policy and domestic matters (instead of playing golf every weekend and tweeting insults). She would also surround herself with smart people. Oprah is an inspiration to many, and I truly believe that she could win an election against Trump - or Pence - or whomever has not been indicted by 2020. The American political climate has changed dramatically since Trump entered the playing field, and if it takes another celebrity to get our country back on track, I say "Run, Oprah, Run!" And Ms. McDormand would make a terrific Vice President, don't you think?

We shall see. It will be - as always - an interesting Presidential election. Now let's get back to the show.

It was definitely Ladies' Night at the Globes as there was a feeling of unity among all the women in the room. Almost everyone wore black in support of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements against sexual harassment, and many winners - including Oprah and Ms. McDormand - shared their own views on the subject. And hopefully things will change for women in Hollywood in the future.

As for host Seth Meyers, he was fine. His opening monologue was amusing, but then he pretty much disappeared, which wasn't a bad thing since I like that the Globes concentrate on handing out the awards with few interruptions. The ceremony moved along quickly, and everyone got to give their speeches. That's my kind of awards show. Now here are the winners (my 11 correct predictions are in pink) as well as some of my own personal awards:

Battle of the Movie Stars #133: 1952-60, Round 4


The following stars of 2001-08 (from the 132nd Battle) will be moving on to Round 5:
