“It’s Time to Vote Tuesday” 162!

August 20, 2013

Today is Tuesday! and if you’ve been coming here for any length of time, you know that, for most people Tuesday is just the day after Monday, but for you it means that “Time to Vote Tuesday” is here!! YES!!! What is “Time to Vote Tuesday”?:

“Time to Vote Tuesday” is the session of fun weekly polls which spark thought, debate, and intrigue! Each poll closes in a week with results posted on the following ‘TVT’!

Last week’s poll: The Crichton Collection has officially closed and the results are in with 40 total votes. Asking for your choice of author Michael Crichton’s books made to movie, it was a no-brainer that Jurassic Park would win. Twister spun into 2nd place and The 13th Warrior wasn’t cut down to last place…that spot was taken by Congo. Thanks to everyone that voted and get out there and see/read more of Crichton’s works!MIchaelCrichtonCollection

This week’s edition of ‘TVT’ entitled “The A’s Have It” takes a moment to celebrate the birthdays of Amy Adams and Andrew Garfield today.

Captain Picard has a cake for you!

Captain Picard has a cake for you!

Today are indeed the birthdays of Strawberry blonde starlet Amy Adams (39) and web-slinging Spider-Man Andrew Garfield (30).

Amy Adams Special ShootAmy Adams, born in Italy and raised in Colorado, used to work at The Gap and at Hooters before her career stepped forward in dance and was in productions such as “Brigadoon” in Boulder’s Dinner Theatre and Country Dinner Playhouse.  A pulled muscle that benched her from dancing temporarily also made her free to audition for a part in Drop Dead Gorgeous. Kirstie Allie reportedly encouraged her to then move to Los Angeles for more work in television and saw limited success until Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio. This 4-time Academy Award nominee has been in numerous roles that include superhero girlfriends to singing princesses (she does her own singing, btw) and celebrates her 39th birthday today. Happy Birthday, Amy!

Today I ask you:

andrewgarfieldAndrew Garfield, born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Surrey, U.K. (born to a British mother and American father), went to private schools and studied drama, speech and theater from a young age. Dating Amazing Spider-Man co-star Emma Stone since 2011, Garfield stated that Spider-Man was always his hero growing up. He moved to Los Angeles in 2007. On the subject of the roles he gets, he’s been quoted as saying: “I hope that I have to audition for every single job I want. I hope that I’m always struggling, really. You develop when you’re struggling. When you’re struggling, you get stronger.” Today this Golden Globe Award nominee celebrates his 30th birthday. Happy Birthday, Andrew!

Today is also director David O. Russell‘s birthday (55). He directed Amy Adams in The Fighter and also directed Silver Linings Playbook and the upcoming film American Hustle. Happy Birthday to them all.

Thanks for joining me today! I can’t wait to see the results next week. Be sure to vote before the polls close on 8-27-13. The results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”great hair

Thanks for reading! Happy Watching!

    Awesome double polls! I went w/ The Fighter & Enchanted for Amy (though I’d also pick Junebug) and Never Let Me Go & Social Network for Garfield. He looks sooo handsome in that photo! And yeah he definitely has GREAT hair, even up close at Comic-con after he took off his Spidey face mask, he didn’t have helmet hair, ahahaha.

      Thanks Ruth! Glad you had fun voting. I haven’t seen Junebug but with some of the other comments about it I have added it to my list of must see films.

      Oh man, Never Let Me Go was something else wasn’t it?

      funny that both of the bday people on the polls are known for their hair. 🙂 Thanks for voting my friend. So glad you got to see Andrew G in person.

    I’ve always liked Amy Adams. My favorite roles are her ones in The Master and The Fighter.

    I had to go with The Fighter and Julie & Julia (not listed). Julie & JUlia was the first movie I took notice to Amy Adams. I loved her in this role, and I thought she was kicka$$ in The Fighter.

    I only chose The Social Network for Garfield. I like him as an actor, but he hasn’t been that memorable to me except in this role. He didn’t impress me that much in The Amazing Spiderman to give him props for that. Sorry T…I know Spiderman is ur guy…lol

      Julie & Julia is one I haven’t sat all the way through. haha. I will give it a shot someday. But Amy Adams was real good in the Fighter and it looks like most people agree with you. 🙂

      haha. I forgot you weren’t too impressed with Garfield as Spider-Man. You’re right…he’s my guy. But I still got love for ya! 🙂 Thanks for voting. Glad this week you were able to.

    Garfield does have great hair, Picard not so much. Didn’t Amy Adams get an Oscar nomination for Junebug? I remember watching that DVD just to see her performance before she became a big star.

    I really enjoyed Amy Adams in The Master and The Fighter. For Garfield, the only thing that he has impressed me with is The Social Network. But I have yet to see the latest Spider-Man.

    Amy Adams rocks! Give me half of her beauty and elegance and I’d be happy! I first loved her in the role of Gisele in Enchanted and she was awesome in Julie & Julia 🙂 I’m a huge fan of Andrew Garfield especially after The Amazing Spiderman and that pushed me to watch Never Let Me Go and he was pretty damn good in that also! 🙂
