Macy’s Reveals “Another Miracle On 34th Street”

Have you seen the new Macy’s commercial?  It features actor Edmund Gwenn (Kris Kringle) from the original “Miracle On 34th Street” digitally edited with Macy’s biggest celebrity names including Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Tommy Hilfiger and a very funny turn from one Martha Stewart.  I LOVE the original film and this is a fun way for Macy’s to bring about some holiday spirit!!!  Check it out below!


LIVE BLOG – Golden Globe Awards

Welcome to franklyHANK’s first live blog.  For those of you new to this, it’s simple.  Just keep refreshing the page to see my updated comments throughout the Golden Globe Awards telecast on NBC.  Newest comments are posted on top.  You can make comments to the blog, but they will not post until I approve them, so give me some time.  It’ll be a busy, but fun night.

Be sure to tune in to Windy City LIVE tomorrow on ABC7 Chicago or, both at 9AM.  Paige Wiser and David Plummer will recap the winners and losers and stylists Eric Himel and Amy Tara Koch will talk all things fashion.  Let the blogging begin.


9:56pm  Thank God this show ended on time b/c if it had run long, I would have killed myself.  It’s over.  Amen and Good night.  Hope you enjoyed the live blog.

9:54pm Harrison Ford has the big award… Best Motion Picture – Drama:  THE DESCENDANTS.   Are you kidding me?  Really?  Really? “The Help” will win the Oscar.   The Golden Globes are not really the pre-cursor to the Oscars, so I will hope for better things.

9:47pm  Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama:  GEORGE CLOONEY for “The Descendants.”  Yawn!  Although the golf joke about Michael Fasbender’s penis was pretty good.  LOL

9:39pm  Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical:  THE ARTIST

9:37pm  Meryl curses when she can’t find her glasses!!!  Brilliant.  As the music plays her off, she screams, “Oh no, no!!!”  And her best line… “And I love you, Viola.  You’re my girl.”   Gracious to a fault.  But Viola should have won!  She’ll get the Oscar.

GLEE SCOOP: Yes to more Gwyneth. No to Bieber.

It’s a GLEE-ful Sunday as I catch up on all my TV scoop.   GLEE EP Ryan Murphy confirms that Gwyneth Paltrow will be re-appearing in not just one, but two more episodes…and get this…she will be dating Will Schuester, played by Matthew Morrison.  She’ll also be teaching sex ed.  Gotta love it.

Speaking of Paltrow, she’s hosting Saturday Night Live on January 15th with musical guest Cee Lo Green.  Paltrow sang his song, “F**k You,” on GLEE…although it was “Forget You” for the TV audience.

And shooting down a popular Internet rumor, Murphy says there will NOT be a Justin Bieber episode.  He says those episodes are reserved for people with big music catalogs…(and I add, people who actually have talent).

Proof That Barbara Walters Has Lost It In Her Old Age

Barbara Walters comes out with her annual “Most Fascinating People” and on her list is none other than…brace yourself…the cast from “The Jersey Shore.”  Really, Barbara?  Are you really sinking this low?  A group of uneducated, fame-seeking, reality “stars” are really among the most fascinating people you can find?  What makes them so fascinating?  The ratings you’ll get when the show airs?  Here’s the real “Situation”, Babs.  The people who watch MTV for “The Jersey Shore” are not the same folks who care what some elderly white lady thinks are the “most fascinating” people.  Also on the list… Sarah Palin, Justin Bieber, Lebron James…   Ugh,  don’t get me started on this one.
