During these challenging times, we all need a friend like interior designer extraordinaire Shaynna Blaze in our lives.

musical genius

SNEAK PEEK First there was Albert Einstein, then there was Pablo Picasso. Next up, National Geographic is turning the spotlight on another genius and one of the most iconic singers of all time: Aretha Franklin. When the third instalment in the scripted drama series Genius returns to screens later this year, the songstress’s tumultuous rise from humble beginnings – singing in her local gospel choir in Detroit as a child – to become the undisputed ‘Queen of Soul’, the most charted female artist in Billboard history and the first female performer to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is chronicled. Rather fittingly, the woman portraying Franklin has enjoyed quite the meteoric rise herself. Cynthia Erivo (pictured), who recently appeared in Stephen King thriller The Outsider, previously dazzled audiences with…

larrikins lost?

In the age of political correctness, some might argue that Australia’s beloved cultural hero – the Aussie larrikin – has been lost to this new way of life. Enter one-hour Sky News special The Death of the Aussie Larrikin?. Airing this month, it hopes to stir up some healthy debate on the subject. Hosted by Outsiders anchor and political commentator Rowan Dean, who’s joined by veteran TV presenter Kerri-Anne Kennerley, comedians Paul Fenech, Vince Sorrenti and Emma Malik, journalist James Valentine and actress Delvene Delaney, the program examines the figures that epitomised the larrikin culture during its heyday – such as Paul Hogan (pictured). Has the humour and good spirit of Hogan and Delaney’s sketches from The Paul Hogan Show of the 1970s and ’80s been tarnished by the ‘cancel culture’ facing today’s…

all hail queen cate

She already has a swag of awards decorating her mantelpiece – including two Oscars, three Golden Globes, three BAFTAs and two AACTAs. Now, Australian talent Cate Blanchett looks set to add an Emmy and more to those accolades, with her starring role in FX drama Mrs America – which she also executive produced – generating plenty of awards buzz. The nine-episode limited series, which finishes its run on FOX SHOWCASE this month and is available to stream On Demand*, is a gripping look at the rise and fall of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) during the 1970s, centred around unexpected anti-ERA leader Phyllis Schlafly (Blanchett). “In her meatiest role since 2015’s Carol, Blanchett laps up every last self-justifying drop of the contradiction that is Schlafly,” declares The Hollywood Reporter. Mrs America…

a tribute to bill collins

“After Bill Collins passed [on June 20, 2019, aged 84], I deliberated for several weeks about whether or not his hosting should still be seen. I didn’t want to be in any way disrespectful or exploitative. But when I go into Foxtel On Demand, where we have a dedicated movie carousel of Bill Collins’ Golden Years of Hollywood, and I click on any one of those great movies – the list is long, as you can imagine – and the theme music comes up and Bill’s introduction comes on, it feels right. It feels like something Bill (pictured with wife Joan) would have been happy with, that his work can live on for generations. What sets Bill apart from other film critics and presenters is that he never gave away the…

royally good viewing

With the holiday for Elizabeth II’s official birthday observed in most states and territories (Qld and WA excluded) on Monday June 8, there’s plenty to keep you entertained – from films to historical documentaries, crime dramas and everything in between.

From Carry On Loving to Carry On England, Carry On at Your Convenience, Carry On Up the Khyber and Carry On Matron, you’ll be in stitches. Just what the doctor ordered! Watch from Saturday June 6…
