COMMENT DU JOUR
Emmy Aftermath - how to fix the Emmys?

"Personally, I'm opposed to capping wins or even nominations, even if seeing Modern Family win year after year drives me up the walls. I think it look punishing to the winners, instead of addressing the real issue, which are the voters and the voting system, and how even as things change and get more diverse and they try to catch up, they still don't vote that outside that box at all. It still takes that little aura of prestige for different shows to break in, and there is such a gap between what's great and what's awards-material." - Tee

Sigh.

What talent?

Every pre-natal care clinic in the world should have a picture of LL and her parents in the waiting room with the warning: THIS IS NOT HOW TO RAISE YOUR CHILD! across the bottom.

I believe in Lindsay Lohan.

April 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJohn

Does anyone remember the W Magazine with Lindsay and Meryl on the cover... hindsight. Also Winona Ryder(and Courtney Love) must want to murder Robert Downey Jr(and Natasha Lyonne).

I always pretend that I'm over her but here I am, hoping for something more.

I laughed so hard when she said she wanted to be in Avengers 2.

What this docu-series has shown me is that Lindsay only wants the glory of being a movie star, but to do the work is just too much for her. As a child, it all came easily to her and even as an adult, but of course, it can all be ripped away so fast.

She constantly blows off meetings and I'm sure her agents get an earful if they even suggest she actually audition. What a sad shell she has become and the plastic surgery to her face just ruined her.

I remember when Jane Fonda openly complained about LL's antics during that Georgia Rule movie... she must be hell on earth to deal with on-set haha

Is that thing about Sigourney in Prometheus 2 true? ANSWER ME!!!!!!!! or I am going to strangle you all in your sleep for teasing.

The docu-series is like watching a trainwreck. The girl just doesn't have the skills or maturity to work, whether it is on a movie set or at CVS.

April 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCharlieG

LOL I just realized I commented on the wrong post. As far as Lindsay is concerned, I'm not sure a reality show is the best way to make a comeback.

April 10, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAgent69

Yeah, I think it is time to give up the ghost on LiLo returning, not just years ago but perhaps period. Child actors do not necessarily translate into strong actors as adults. She had three very strong films (Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, Mean Girls), worked with some major talents (Robert Altman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda), but since Mean Girls I have seen no evidence that the spryness that came with her younger self exists. If you rest, you rust, and eventually you just forget how to act-I really don't think that she has the skills to be a strong actor as an adult. And she certainly doesn't have the commitment to her craft to focus on acting lessons and not on keeping her name in the press.

Granted, that doesn't mean she couldn't have a solid career or make a career comeback (people who cannot act get work all the time), but I don't think she's worth pining over.

After her interview with Oprah, I was actually hopeful and somewhat optimistic about a return for her. But after watching this DocuSeries, I have lost all faith of it ever happening. She's borderline sociopathic honestly. I know that's what addicts do, they constantly act and lie and manipulate, but it's SO obvious she's doing it (aka not really recovering) and on top of that she doesn't put any work in and constantly plays for the victim for everything. I'd wonder why she's so clueless about why no one wants to hire her, except for the fact that every one around her enables her.

It's all very sad. I have no idea how she even pays her bills. We'll have to stick with "Liz & Dick"s and "Canyon"s for the rest of her career.
