I’m team Lea Michele and Dove Cameron for Wicked!

I love how political Ellen Page has been lately. I wish more male gay celebrities were as vocal as she is for our people.

Idina Menzel was 32 when she first played Elphaba in Wicked. You know who's 32 now? Lea Michele. You know who else is hilarious the same age? Lady Gaga. Just putting that out there for the lolz.

Though if she can sing, my pick would be a relative "unknown" like Jurnee Smollett. The role is big enough already. It doesn't need a big name for the role.

Was talking about all the big press yesterday from 'Big Little Lies' onstage during the HBO segment of the 2019 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour... and how it will be eligible not for this year’s Emmys now but the following since it just misses the deadline
