It’s a prestige event, for sure, but during Alsop’s tenure — she celebrates her 20th season this summer, starting Sunday with the first rehearsals — it has become something more: a popular and welcoming event, a happening for folks who otherwise might never set foot in a concert hall. There’s the key: In the classical music world, Alsop is one of a relatively few conductors who know how to challenge listeners while shifting the paradigm — democratizing the presentation, making classical music feel cool, not elitist. So when she steps out of the wings on opening night Friday, expect a sense of tingly anticipation and those war whoops. It’s a homecoming for conductor and crowd alike.
Ryan Gosling (“Blade Runner 2049”): Think he just kind of sleepwalked through his role as an android cop hunting renegade replicants? Then how did Gosling bring such yearning ache to K’s real quest: feeling what humans do? When disappointment, inevitably, takes primacy over all other tactile and emotional sensations, we know K’s electric heart can’t take it because Gosling has ever-so-patiently, and with utmost care, lain out for us just how he’s wired, Doug Jones (“The Shape of Water”): Well, A), Sally Hawkins’ best actress of the year performance never would have worked if veteran monster portrayer Jones’ fish man wasn’t so damn sexy, And B), though encased from head-to-toes in latex and other appliances, Jones was somehow able to also project the monster’s fears, needs and underlying decency, often via body language so well-judged it became virtually an act of pure cinema, Plus, he could dance, Not to take anything away from Andy Serkis’ dour, digitally transformed ballet monogram set clipart cutting files svg jpg eps vinyl papercut paper cut heat transfer digital graphics template cuttable ape-leader agonizing, but I’d dare say Jones’ all-practical performance was a more beguiling and physically demanding job, I mean, c’mon, which creature would you rather date?..
State Attorney General Kamala Harris made no noteworthy mistakes in the U.S. Senate debate Wednesday night and subsequently announced endorsements from the state’s two sitting senators, while opponent Rep. Loretta Sanchez’s most attention-grabbing moment at the debate may have been a dance move. Both campaigns claimed victory after the Wednesday night faceoff, but Sanchez has significant ground to make up after emerging from the primary 21 percentage points behind Harris. “It’s pretty clear that she didn’t make much progress at the debate,” said Jack Pitney, a political scientist at Claremont McKenna College. “She missed an opportunity. She needed to appeal to Republicans and, to do that, she needed to make a strong national security message. Instead, she was all over the map and she spent a lot of time attacking Harris.”.
