Argh. Ladies, enjoy Exile tonight - I am going to have to watch it tomorrow on Iplayer. My friend has just been given the elbow by her boyfriend. I am kicking myself secretly for saying "well if you are feeling down, come round..." to which she replied, "I'll be over at 7, and I'll bring wine and DVDs..."
Good news Ladies, turns out I got to have Exile on in the background when I was talking to my friend - so I still don't know what was going on, but I did get something nice to look at - and when I pointed it out to her - she said "he's kinda hot for an older guy"... which I was stunned by - though I have never thought of him as older. Gonna watch on iplayer now
If anyone is interested Dean Andrews (Ray Carling of course) is running the BUPA Great Manchester Run in a couple of weeks time raising funds for the Alzheimers Society. If you would like a link then just PM me.
This is fantastic news - really cheered me up and its no more than John deserves. If he doesn't win this I will be so dissapointed. Eric & Ernie is about British Comedians Eric Morcambe and Ernie Wise.
I really really hope John wins this... a bit dissapointed Exile was nominated in any other category as well to be honest, but at least his pivotal role was recognised!
The one thing that struck me about the other two dramas in this category is that Exile alone is purely fictional - Appropriate Adult is a drama based on real life serial killer Fred West (having once walked past the very road where the murders took place I have to say just the idea of it makes me shudder, I'm afraid I didn't watch it much as I admire Dominic West) and Eric & Ernie is kind of a bio-pic, being about the two late comedic duo (I grew up watching them on TV, their shows are still funny today, if perhaps a little dated - they even 'appeared' on Life on Mars (S2 E1)... anyway, not sure of the relevance of all this, just thought it was interesting! ;D
That's fantastic news - the first of many nominations for Exile I hope. Tough competition from Dominic West - I saw Appropriate Adult and he was mesmerising in it. I think one of the Eric & Ernie guys has already won an award for their portrayal. Three very different dramas, all deserving praise...obviously not as much as John in Exile
