Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Surely I cannot be the only one who used to tune in religiously to the antics of the luscious Becca Grant and her ill-behaved digital co-hosts Throut and Neck. My introduction to this show came from a chance encounter while flipping aimlessly through the channels (these were my college years, and I used to watch a lot of "Wild On..." and the like--translation: I was horny). Five minutes after my brain went numb in witness of the image of Grant in pigtails and a scandalously tight neon green outfit with bared midriff and go-go boots, I regained enough cognitive capacity to realize that the show actually wasn't half bad. In fact, it was at least half good.
The premise: viewers would call in and take control of Throut or Neck using the touch pads on their telephones in video game competition. The games themselves were amusing, especially as to the running commentary by the digital competitors, but the success of the show owed itself to the often hilarious interactions between those disreputable yet lovable monsters Throut and Neck (video game head shots on television screens) and the lively Becca Grant, who, rather impressively, had a lot on the ball and easily kept up with their litany barbs. It sounds ridiculous to say, but these three had some great chemistry. I'm sad that it didn't last longer, but I hear Rebecca Grant made out fairly well in the long run. She was a co-host of 'NFL Under the Helmet' for some time, though I can't say that I ever watched it. I don't like football, but I do love sexy gameshows!
