Diva Ryan Murphy

Let’s talk about “Glee.”You don’t want to? You’re sick of it? Well too bad – this obnoxious fad is going to be around for at least another year or two. The first season of “Glee” was a novelty, something to be enjoyed not only for its musical numbers, but also for its charismatic and fun (if sometimes snarky) ways of handling topical issues. Unfortunately, the show quickly headed into a downward spiral of plotless storylines that existed only to prop up Top 40 pop songs sung by celebrity guest stars and/or provide fodder for Sue Sylvester’s zingers. Not only has the show suffered creatively (though by no means financially), but Ryan Murphy and co. bought into the hype (with the exception of Jane Lynch, because let’s face it: she’s all kinds of awesome). They turned from underdogs to bullies. Lea Michele and Dianna Agron stripped for GQ. Lea Michele was mean (SHOCK!) to a young starlet. Lea Michele is a diva on the set (noticing a pattern here?).

It’s a day that I’ve consistently marked on my calendar as soon as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) announces its schedule – nomination time, also known as the moment when we all reflect over the past year in film and immediately begin bitching about what a sham it is to judge a work of art by the amount of statues it can rack up.
