Please Submit Bette Midler’s Name To The Kennedy Honors Submission Page And Share – Example Given. Thank You!

Mister D: There’s a section where you write why Bette should receive this reward. I hate writing, so I just let whatever flow out of me. You can use this as a template and further improve on it. I left out, looking back, the cultural shifts she started, and how she was so controversial at the time and the barriers she had to break down. You can make it more emotional but you do have to include her accomplishment. Go for it. This is an award I think she really deserves, so please fill it out and share the hell out of the link to this article by clicking on the title of the piece ot just the link provided to the Kennedy Honors Submission Page. Send it to everu Bette Midler fan site or FB group you know. This is not a time to play politics. It’s about coming together as a community. Read More

Kennedy Center Honors: Our top 50 recommendations who need to be chosen include Dick Van Dyke, Liza Minnelli, Jessica Lange, Bette Midler

Mister D: Ok, I admit that I’m prejudiced, but this list could be whittled down in seconds for me. My standards are high, well in some things, and some of these people don’t really belong on this list.

The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category – Bette Midler Proves It In One Segment

Remember when Ann Reinking lip-synced — and danced to — “Against All Odds,” the No. 1 hit by Phil Collins from the movie of the same name, at the Academy Awards in 1985? No?

It was nearly five minutes of theatrical fog, odd lunges and wide-eyed emoting, and Collins had to watch the slow-motion oddity from his seat. The academy wanted a “variety” of entertainers to perform the nominees for best original song, so it didn’t enlist the English rocker, then at the peak of his career.
