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!

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