007 SPECTRE

007 is back! And from the pictures I have seen online, I must say that I am looking forward to this  James Bond film.

This year’s film is titled SPECTRE and it looks very interesting, considering I have only watched the trailer.

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as the infamous James Bond, making this his fourth 007 movie. The film’s antagonist, Franz Oberhauser will be played by Christoph Waltz.

PREMISE: After the attack on MI6 by Raoul Silva (Skyfall), a cryptic message sets James Bond on a mission where he comes face to face with a criminal organization called SPECTRE. Meanwhile, Gareth Mallory, the new M continues to fight political pressure that puts the future of MI6 at risk.

The story features Bond’s first encounter with the criminal organization SPECTRE making it its first appearance since its mention in the 1971 film Diamonds are Forever.

EMMY AWARDS 2015

Emmy-Awards-key-art

So I have been waiting for the Emmy Nominations to be announced for like forever!!! But the wait is finally over!!!!

It has been an incredible year for a few TV Shows and their stars. Well, Gina Rodriguez is doing pretty well, considering she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a comedy, hopefully she is in the Emmy list for Actress in a Comedy.

Viola Davis and Taraji P Henson are also enjoying the year. The TV shows, How To Get Away with Murder and Empire have gathered a lot of viewers. They made the Emmy list for Best Actress in a Drama Series.

Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are also doing well. They won Best Actor and Supporting Actor in their hit show Better Call Saul (Breaking Bad spin-off). I personally think they are the next Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul; who as you know won back to back Emmys for Breaking Bad. They are also nominated as well.

The 67th Emmy Nominations were announce yesterday evening and there were mixed reactions to the nomination list. Game of Thrones has picked up most nominations with 24 noms. American Horror Story:Freak Show and Olive Ketteridge follow with 19 and 13 nominations respectively.
