Mathieu Jaton, CEO of Montreux Jazz Festival, said: “Since its beginnings in 1967, the Montreux Jazz Festival has been immensely fortunate to have built up, thanks to the visionary spirit of Claude Nobs, a rich and unique audiovisual archive. This heritage has made the Festival famous and continues to make it shine through initiatives such as the 54th Summer of Music, made possible through our collaboration with the Claude Nobs Foundation, Eagle Rock and the NMAAM. This summer, this heritage is more essential than ever.” Continue reading Montreux Jazz Festival Presents: 54th Summer Of Music→
As promised, I have returned to the topic of this latest awards show which is the Daytime Emmy Awards. We noted during the post about the nominees that this year it would be held virtually based on all the chaos inflicted by the Coronavirus Pandemic and the show would be hosted by the ladies from The Talk. Each one reporting from the safety of their own home and if you weren’t aware of the folks involved its Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba and Marie Osmond. Now as mentioned, we don’t watch a lot of daytime television and instead use the hometime to catch up with the night before DVR stuff or just writing our next post. That being said here now are the recently revealed winners of the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Enjoy.

As you all are probably aware by now, Broadway is on hiatus for the time-being based on the effects of the still in progress Coronavirus Pandemic. Recent reports say that its likely not to return until Winter when the year turns over but some even have pushed this as far as Spring 2021. One of the hottest plays currently on the stage is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton”. The play has been a blockbuster since opening and has won “11” Tony Awards. It was set to open in theaters everywhere sometime in 2021 but with the virus causing so many shows and events to be cancelled or postponed until indeterminate dates, the decision was made to stream this on Disney+ beginning on July 3rd. The trailer was recently released so let’s check that out along with the premise, casting and the official poster.
