The Framework Blog captures all things worth mentioning that I lay my eyes on, concerning television, films and books. When possible I will use facts and spice it with humour and fiction. That was the intention.
Now beware dear readers... for it all went hilariously wrong!
** "Offbeat hilarious!" ** "RA tingles & laughs" ** "True to the characters! " ** "The fiction is great. Keep it up!" **

August Is Hot: A Tux In Flux
Torture Method: Contemporary Black Tie
This is my second posting in the series ´August Is Hot´, theme
´Up Close Torture Feast´. A tongue-in-cheek Leo-lushious series of posts for birthday hotties like me and hopefully bearable delectable for every other reader of this blog.
A Tux In Flux
If RA ever intends to speech at my birthday in a tux, I shall request him to do the autograph signing first.
"To create impact without intrusion in a supporting role,
It was through reading about all the red carpet mayhem how I became aware that the UK finds its television (and film) industry hugely important, with over 10,000 paid actors and actresses. This industry is approximately 20 times bigger than the one in Holland. Internationally, ´we´ win Oscars with films now and then, and are big with sellling television formats, like the debatable ´Big Brother´, but with tv-drama? Don´t worry, we have our own awards.
In numerous British interviews, the UK industry is compared with the American one in a demeaning tone. The Dutch also like to compare themselves with the Americans, but with things like story telling and the quality of acting and production, we admire the British. And costumes!
To go back to RA´s well written ´presenting-an-award´ speech, I was reminded of it´s short-range. Has it to do with seniority? Meaning that every extra year you´re allowed to speech at the Bafta´s, you´re granted an extra sentence? The moment of RA intuxicating the stage was gone too soon. Two sentences in 2011!?
To entice you more, I thought of other intuxicating moments that came to mind.
Colin Firth´s ´getting-an-award´speech at the Film Bafta´s 2010 is an example of a well written and adorably just right lengh speech, because he truly deserved his award.
Dude, you don´t wanna go down there with Conan O´Brien. :)
Get your man in a tux.
Your excuse: it´s to make you, the female companion, look good.
