Rothman's Oscar Picks, Part Three of Six.

Best Actress:

Isabelle Huppert, “Elle”  This is one of the few DVDs they didn't send me.  I have a feeling it wouldn't have made a difference.  Most Academy voters don't see everything,  but vote anyway.

Ruth Negga, “Loving”  Don't know the woman, but she seemed genuinely disinterested in what she was doing.

Natalie Portman, “Jackie”  I knew Jackie Kennedy.  She was no Jackie Kennedy.

Emma Stone, “La La Land”  Yeah, she was good, but she was no Eleanor Powell, no Cyd Charisse,
no Vera-Ellen, no Debbie Reynolds, no Alice Faye, no Leslie Caron, no Jane Powell--so where are their Academy Awards?  I know, Ginger Rogers, but that wasn't for a musical.

Meryl Streep, “Florence Foster Jenkins”  The best we have, in perhaps her greatest performance.
And an even better musical performance than Emma Stone.

The Winner:  Streep.  No one else is even in the race.


My books, "Show Runner" and it's sequel, "Show Runner Two", can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store.
Along with the newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".
They are all compilations of blog entries that have since been removed from the blog.
So this is the only way you can find them.
You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.
Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperbacks, "Mark Rothman's Essays" and my new novel, "I'm Not Garbo" are not e-books.
But they are available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings lined up for those, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one.
If you'd like one of the paperbacks, personally autographed, contact me at
And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne and Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
