Bittersweetness

Opening night was fantastic, mostly because my homies were there to tell me how much they loved me. (Thanks, Panini, Kiki, Pea, Si Wi and Tall Paul for being there!! ) And secondly mostly because of the wonderful cast members, crew and director who made it all happen.

After the show I learnt that Sumolah didn't win in any of its nominated categories. I really don't know what to say about that. Actually I do, but it's not something I can say here or even in private!!

However, some recipients of the awards in the same categories I do applaud. Dato' Rahim Razalli for Best Supporting Actor, Mira Mustaffa for Best Screenplay (both for Cinta), the luminous Vanidah Imran for Red Kebaya and the courageous Azean Irdawaty for Best Suporting Actress in Waris Jari Hantu. Best FIlm went to Cinta (whose director Khabir Bhatia was oddly not even nominated).

Shuhaimi Baba won Best Director and Best Screenplay for Waris Jari Hantu and Rusdi Ramli for Best Actor (same film). Congrats to all the winners.

Despite being happy with some of the winners, I feel rather too exhausted to comment.

However, I am very happy that I am back onstage again. It's so nice to be "working", I love it.

Lovey, C

From The Star Two, 080807.

"Christina Orow gives a restrained and strong performance as Catherine, the doctor’s wife. She is the sensible one who makes uncomfortable statements as such “Without power, what good is truth?” Yet, when push comes to shove, she is right there beside her husband, unswerving in her loyalty."

Congrats, C! And yes, I totally get what you mean. The FFMs really need to learn how to pick 'em!

I think Khabir wasn't nomoniated because he isn't Malaysian. Well, that's Mrs. H's theory. After so many years, the event itself hasn't improved. Winners don't get to give a speech and very long performances.
