My first post, forgive me if it's the wrong thread ....

Calling attention to TheEnvelope (LA Times) poll:
Who is the most deserving of a nod for lead actress in a drama?
Vote for Lauren Graham HERE if you like.

As much as I love Mariska Hargitay.....she is now over 30% and Lauren is down to 48%.

@ The petition passed 4,500 signatures about a half-hour ago.  Nearing the halfway point.  Hope the Big Project helps when it officially launches on Tuesday(-ish).

@ Lauren vs. Mariska in the poll at GoldDerby -- The way it was explained to me at GoldDerby a couple of years ago, Mariska has a huge gay following and GoldDerby, being an awards site naturally has larger contingent of gay men, thus she gets a huge amount of support at the site.  I'm straight and a huge fan of the site even though I go on long sabbaticals from it, so I want to make it clear that this is NOT a criticism, just an observation.  Of the choices in the poll, I knew that Lauren and Mariska were going to be the two main choices.  One thing that may be affectnig the poll downward is that Lauren voters voted early while Mariska voters voted late.  Another may be that, well, Lauren didn't pick a good submission tape -- she picked "Farewell, My Pet" rather than either "The Long Morrow" or "Bon Voyage," which are the two I would have suggested she pick between to submit.  That aside, a LOT of Gg fans at G-Derby *hate* the Titanic references in FMP just because they're references to Titanic -- not me, me lurves the Titanic imagery for the doomed ship of the Lor-Chris 'Ship, so to speak -- but it's very possible that Lauren's submission choice is affecting her vote.

Yea but I think people hate the "your the man I want to want" line more then the titanic reference! I didn't really like the titanic reference either but you made a good point (the sinking ship of Chris/Lor) so I feel slightly better about it but I would have much prefered she picked Lorelai?Lorelai? or even better...Bon Voyage cause despite what everyone else thinks or says, I think Bon Voyage was an amazing episode and I think I would have been ok with it ending there (cause IMO, Bon Voyage did seem like a series finale) if the rest of the season had been as good. :-\ Plus LG's acting in both episodes was better then in FMP. JMO of course. ;)

I'm sorry but SVU will be on forever-- give Lauren her last chance Emmy damnitt! Just because the submission is based on the FMP epi, don't voters know what a phenomenal actress all around she is and dominates this show??

*Can I be reminded what the deadline is for the Little Daisies??

*If I wanted to email someone the link to the petition, could I just copy and paste that one above in Frannie's post?? :D

I'm inclined to change it to "whenever we get enough of them to be a *huge* nuisance.  ;)  Right now, though, it's Tuesday, July 24th at 3pm ET.

You'll have to ask Frannie about that (OTOH, I'd do it anyway).  But Idea for the big project ahoy.

ITA.  But going back to the Titanic reference, I think what most people miss with the Titanic reference is that Lor and Chris aren't Rose and Jack, they're Rose and, well the snooty little ick-pray played by Billy Zane.  Rose's Mom (Emily) was tightening the corset at the same time that BIlly Zane (Christopher) was trying to assert a cro-magnon control over a woman with a mind of her own.  So she jumped off the boat with Jack (Luke) instead.

Like if I were to do that ^ it would work? (it's weird that I am so moronic about certain tech things still, but I just really want to make sure that this is right when I do it- I have several people I'm ready to spread the word to!)

It should work. I tried putting it in my outlook e-mail.  Just make sure you are sending the e-mail in HTML.  You will know if the picture doesn't show up.
Make sure you have a new e-mail open, then right click on the banner and copy.  Then go to your e-mail and either click edit, paste  or
just right click and paste.   Hope this works for you.   Thanks again!

Nvr2old4gg:  The flyer thing is a good idea, but unfortunately, they became a huge nuisance in the mid-90's and many cities have laws against them.  While I do subscribe to the concept that even bad publicity is good publicity, I wouldn't want to be held criminally liable for anything[1], especially after The Big Project (I suppose I should have called it the Challah ala Lost) is launched.
