Kennedy Center Honors: Class of 2015

Excellent Class!!!!

1. Ms. Cicely Tyson (This ICON is 91 and STILL the Baddest Actress there ever was)

2. George Lucas

3. Carole King

4. The Eagles (I wonder who'll be given the Honor to sing "Hotel California"?)

5. Rita Moreno (This Queen has won it all!..LOL..I think the Kennedy Honor is the final Big-One)

6. Seiji Ozwa (They decided to add a 6th honoree this year)

Each year the President gets to select one Honoree to be honored...Mrs. Obama paid tribute to Cicely @ The Black Girls Rock awards, I wonder if she had some pull in getting Cicely honored this year...

...LOL..I know you just playing with that comment..Just becuz Halle can deliver a convincing "Ghetto Girl Accent" does not mean she's the Black version of Meryl Streep.....Halle couldn't comb Ms. Tyson's Wig...

..LOL...You got me on that one BUT Cicely was recently nominated for an Emmy for "Best Drama Guest Actress" (How to get away with Murder)...She was nominated for a single-episode...I watched that episode and she was Magnificent in every Freaking scene..Critics say the Emmy is already hers...

“Our house burned down to the ground and we were left with nothing. Still, your face was clean, your belly was fed and your butt was covered. I took care of you. I protected you.”
“What the hell are you talking about — ‘Respect the fact’ and ‘Honor your request’? Who the hell do you think you are, Oprah? I wiped your a** and I’ll call you anything I want.”


“Sometimes you do what you gotta do, even if all you have is a long match and a very flammable hooch.”


Loved it.

..LOL...Right...Cicely had the BEST lines the writers could give a Guest-actor....They were Funny and down-right Serious...As tough as Analise is she couldn't handle her Mama...I hope Cicely is invited back but the chances are very slim cuz she's doing a Broadway show with The Great James Earl Jones in the Fall...It will be just the two of them on stage for 2hrs-plus...Cicely says she LOVES doing 8 shows a week and working like 6 days a week...Young people can't keep up with that 91yr old Lady...LOL...Old-School is where its at...She's the Last of her kind..

All my life, I've known her to be an exceptional actress and a person of high esteem. I've got love for her and I need to watch her closer, at 91 she's working like beast, much to learn from her. Wish I could see the play.

Anybody who says Halle Berry is better than Cicely Tyson needs to watch Sounder - and then go sit in the corner forever.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

I'd pay whatever to see the 2 of them...New Yorkers get all the perks...The City that never sleeps...In my Country-town I can only pray there's a Waffle House open 24/7...Southerners believe The Devil is busy when the Sun goes down...
