Dear Miss Know It All,
I may have done something stupid. Need your advice. When my boss travels, I make his hotel reservations. I never book them under his celebrity name. We actually use his birth name. For example: Cary Grant’s real name was Archibald Leech. So if this was for Mr. Grant, I would book it for Mr. Leech. Well, recently we had a really busy week involving sick pets, broken down cars, an some kind of virus on the computers. It was just one of those crazier than normal weeks. For some reason, I booked his recent hotel under his real name. Eek!
Now he is there and people are calling him at the hotel and finding him because of this! I mean, this isn’t Tom Hanks we’re talking about, but still, if I told you his name, he is famous enough, that this shouldn’t happen. I feel like an idiot. How do I make this error up to him when he returns next week?

Academy Award noms are up. Any thoughts?
…also known as the Golden Globes will be handed out this Sunday.
Many look at who is nominated and who wins as a precursor to the Academy Award front-runners.
Here’s my take on it”
All I really care about is what Amy and Tina will be doing. Love those gals!
I just sent in my nominations for the 20th annual SAG Awards. Will be curious to see how many of the people I chose will be part of the official noms which will be announced this Wednesday.
Suffice it to say I did NOT nominate Steve Moyer or Carrie Underwood (and yes they submitted themselves for nomination).
PS I love that they have a category for best ensemble. Can you guess who I nominated?
List of the nominees HERE.
Show will air January 8, 2014.
Friendly reminder for those of you who salivate at the thought of Hollywood’s Awards Season. Here are the dates for 2014:
Jan 8: People’s Choice Awards
Jan 10-12: Golden Globe Awards Weekend
Jan 16: Critics Choice Awards
Jan 16-26: Sundance Film Festival

Never miss a diva quote or my monthly musings!
Just scroll down on this page and on the right hand side you will see a place to follow my RSS feed and/or me on twitter. You can also sign up for my FREE e-zine which I send around the first of the month. I love to muse about various diva websites and about what it’s like to work in a diva environment.
My goal is to help you cope and your daily life with whatever is bothering you, not just your work place.
If you take a look around my site here, you will see that I also try to talk about celebrity events and award shows in particular. Having worked in the industry both as a performer and behind the scenes for what seems like forever, I have a unique look into that world.

Okay Primetime EMMY nominations came in today.
Here are my thoughts:
Are these the only shows on TV?
American Horror Story
Breaking Bad Downton Abby Game of Thrones Girls Homeland House of Cards Mad Men
Modern Family … and the now cancelled 30 Rock and The Office
So these are the shows that got the most nominations. Over and over and over
again. Same old, same old.
Bright spots: The Tonys received writing nods, which they should. Anthony Bourdain’s new show got quite a few nods which was a pleasant surprise. Colbert and Daily Show of course were nominated. It would be nice to see a tie there.
Odd: I find it a sad commentary of TV these days that the “Variety Show” category is made up mostly of award shows. Really? We need to bring back the variety format folks! Special Class included the Super Bowl halftime. I guess that’s what the TV folks think is entertainment? No offense to Beyonce intended.
Confused: I know many hated The Newsroom on HBO (at least Jeff Daniels got a nod) but to not nominate Aaron Sorkin for writing (unless I missed it) is a travesty in my opinion.
The Emmys will air on September 22nd at 8:00 PM on CBS.
Douglas Lancaster, host of ON THE AIR at blogtalk radio, will be interviewing me on Friday, July 5th at 6:00 pm PT.
It’s a LIVE show and you can call in! Check us out at:
