Thank you for being patient and Olivia Colman in The Favourite
Oh, the ups and downs of the internet. Unfortunately, due to a minor technical glitch That’s Not My Age was offline over the weekend. This kind of experience is incredibly frustrating but the issue is now resolved and I’ve taken measures to ensure it won’t happen again; so thank you for being patient and for your support whilst I sorted it out. Apologies to everyone who couldn’t visit the site as usual. But thank goodness, a new week is here, a new year is here and That’s Not My Age is back online! (If you missed my post on Friday about Stylish Women Over-50, you can find it HERE.)
In other notable weekend happenings, last night Olivia Colman won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture for her role in the film The Favourite and is trending online for her bonkers but brilliant acceptance speech. I saw The Favourite last week, and she’s superb alongside Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone as the emotionally brittle Queen Anne in a tale of courtly intrigue which is based on the true story of Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough (played wonderfully by Weisz) competing with her cousin Baroness Abigail Masham (played by Stone) for the monarch’s favours. It’s a boisterous and bawdy comedy and the perfect start to the awards-season (this is the best time of year for cinema-goers like myself). Watching the acceptance speech reminded me to share these stunning Vanity Fair images of Olivia Colman – the modern gentlewoman styling is outstanding, too.
All rise for Queen Colman (also wonderful in Andrew Davies’ Les Misérables and coming soon as Queen Elizabeth in the new series of The Crown).
