Yesterday I watched the movie “Hidden Figures.”
The movie is the true story of three women who helped elevate the United States space program during the 1960’s when the US and Soviet Union were in a race to send a man to the moon.
Overcoming the obstacles of racism and sexism in the workforce, these women proved their place through hard work and ability.
The spirit of the movie soared as the US space program overcame obstacles to get our astronauts into space.
While we are all familiar with the heroes who went into space, this story gives us a look at the heroes on the ground who put them there.
Nominated for a number of Academy Awards this past year, I would rank this film with any of the other great “space” theme classics. I loved it!
Hidden Figures is a testament of what greatness can be accomplished when the talents of everyone is encouraged. When the person most qualified is given an opportunity to excel regardless of sex, orientation or color.
Check it out, Hidden Figures is a great movie!
Sunday Playlist…. Grace Alone by Christina Hamilton
Just a few thoughts on the American Music Awards…..
Justin Timberlake is a good time… he seems to REALLY appreciate his success, he doesn’t take himself too seriously and has grown into his stardom well.
How do you spell desperate…..
Pitbull as an Emcee, not so much!
Taylor Swift loves to showcase her humility when accepting an award…. but it is all lost when she talks about her 6,000,000 in sales.
What would Joan Rivers say about this dress on Fashion Police if it were not on Kelly Osbourne?
Never been a fan of One Direction, never really even listened to any of their music before, but last night they were good.
It is nice to have the old Christina Aguilera back.
Best performance of the night…. Imagine Dragons.
Runner up for best performance of the night, and I am as shocked to say this as you are to read it….. J-Lo.
Desperate volume 2…..
How sad is it that people notice Miley Cyrus has everything covered when on the red carpet and THAT is the story.
Joan Jett has still got it.
Even someone as famous as Rihanna gets upstaged when your mother comes on the scene.
Life’s Playlist…. Love Somebody by Maroon 5
The Voice has become the best talent show on American television. It has a hipper, more relevant feel than X-Factor or American Idol and it just has a better “feel” than the others. Last night, Jacquie Lee became this season’s favorite to win…. she is only 16, the youngest contestant in this year’s show and A-MA-ZING! If Christina Aguilera doesn’t mess it up she could finally get a win….

Chris Christie proves why he can win a national election if the Republican Party will do the right thing and nominate him.
