  1. Unfortunately genre-type shows and movies rarely get awards. I think academy voters tend to like more traditional content. I recall that it was considered quite an amazing feat for Lord of the Rings part 3 to win so many awards.
  2. Yeah, everybody wants a piece of them -- the FTC, congress, attorneys general, not to mention 143 million victims represented by salivating lawyers . It will be interesting to see it how it plays out.
  3. I imagine when award shows started they were more altruistic in nature, but over the decades have devolved into showy spectacles that seem to be more about self-promotion of their industry, IMO. It also doesn't help that so many of the same people are nominated year after year. They almost seems like private events for the in-crowd. The Broadway Tonys have a unique approach. A play or musical can only be nominated during its first year. After that, no matter how many years it runs, it cannot be nominated again (unless it comes back later as a revival with a new production). Imagine what the Emmys would look like if they had that same restriction. Or if nominees could only win once per category, and after winning were ineligible to be nominated again. The nominating committees would really have to break out of their comfort zones to find new candidates.
  4. Hi Deborah, Please use the Contact Us link at the bottom of this page to send me your full name and email address and I will look into the problem. Also please provide any details that might help, such as whether you can get into the general forums or not, or if it's just the writing club you can't access. Thanks!
  5. Sad, but true! On the other hand, I can't help but wonder if Equifax can survive the lawsuits. I guess it will depend on how much damage has been done. I know of several people who "may have been affected," but haven't heard about anyone whose info has been used -- yet.
  6. You've probably heard about this already but if you haven't, Equifax (1 of the 3 U.S. credit bureaus) was hacked in June and July. They got info on 143 million people -- more than half of all American adults. The info contained: Names Addresses Birthdates SSN Driver's license numbers Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself from potential financial harm as a result of this massive data breach. http://money.cnn.com/2017/09/09/pf/what-to-do-equifax-hack/index.html
  7. Here's the link to your Book Club sub-forum: http://legionm.us/forum/forums/forum/149-book-club/ Yes! Whenever you start a new topic it defaults to regular content, but there is a tab for creating a Poll. It's a little funky in that you have to fill out both tabs (Poll and Content), but other than that it's pretty straightforward.
  8. I've sent you a registration email. Let me know if you have any problems logging in.
  9. YOU are the one with the great idea! Thanks for pulling all that info together!
  10. Check here to see if there might be a Legion M meetup group in your area: https://www.facebook.com/groups/iamlegionm/permalink/491207901245361/
  11. Thanks John! Cool! I've got Prime so will def keep an eye open for it.
  12. Wow, that is a great cast. Will have to keep an eye open for it. Many British shows do make their way here eventually. Yes, I suppose that's a pretty good reason for him doing the accent so well.
