Poll Results: Favorite Cary Grant Film

North by Northwest

– North by Northwest: 10 votes
– Notorious: 8 votes
– Arsenic and Old Lace: 5 votes
– Charade: 4 votes
– Only Angels Have Wings: 3 votes
– His Girl Friday: 2 votes
– To Catch a Thief: 2 votes
– Bringing Up Baby: 1 vote
– The Philadelphia Story: 1 vote
– Suspicion: 1 vote

No surprise to see Hitchcock films go 1-2 here, but I would have pegged His Girl Friday to be ranked higher. Nice to see ten different films get votes though!

This Week’s Poll: This year’s Emmy nominations were announced last week. While there were a number of questionable nominations (see Sati’s post for the most glaring omissions), they seemed to hit most of the major players for Outstanding Drama. This week’s question is: what is your favorite show that was nominated for this year’s Outstanding Drama?

Have a great week, folks!

    I missed out on voting, but my favorite isn’t even on the list. The Awful Truth is my favorite Cary Grant movie AND my favorite movie, period.

    Hi, Eric:

    Good results for the Cary Grant poll!

    It’s nice to see the strategy FX employed with putting extra money and talent aside for its then superior “must see” product, ‘The Shield’ evolving into even smaller entities (Showtime, Netflix, etc) doing the same for their pet projects like ‘Homeland’ and ‘House of Cards’.

    AMC has done it best of the lot, with ‘Breaking Bad’. Which is a weekly exploration into the depth and abilities of superb, Jack of all trades character actor, Bryan Cranston!

      Hi Jack, yeah, AMC has really nailed that formula. Breaking Bad and Mad Men are two of the best shows on TV, and it’s great to see them succeed. I also really like what Netflix has been doing lately. House of Cards is terrific, and I am also enjoying Orange is the New Black. Hope they keep up the great, original programming.
