We aren’t the intend audience for tonight so it’s not important in the big pic but I can’t help but feel this is going from bad to worse for Cait. For a while now she’s come across as unlikable. Ppl thought it was weird she didn’t thank Sam for her IFTA, tonight she pushed Frank. Small but adds to some thinking she’s stuck up. More important is her overall vibe. She looked awful blocking fans not long ago. Perception of most is she was very brash tonight. Her likability is taking hit after hit.

I am sorry but this is a naive Ask and one intended to make Cait look bad with a broadbrush that is not deserved.

1. Yes, she acted very strange and baffling on Twitter this week.  But I think she’s not been herself for several weeks and that’s because the grapefruit mango juggle is starting to smell. 

2. I already said the night of IFTA that she thanked just her team at IFTA (and I think on purpose).  If you pay attention (which you clearly do not) then you can see those things.  But if you want to wallow in self-righteous anger like you are now, then you won’t.

3. She didn’t push Frank not in the way that you are saying.  She said she enjoyed the scenes with him because it was a great acting challenge to explore the layers of that relationship which, as Toni Graphia said, was watching something two people dealing with something unraveling.  In a way, it was probably like doing another type of show for her which had to be a nice change since she’s only had one opportunity to do that since she signed on to Outlander. 

4. While I am not happy with the fake crap surrounding her personal life so far this year and her decision to take it that far, I do not think she came across as unlikable in any way, shape or form this evening.   I don’t find her stuck up, I find her somewhat shy and somewhat tone deaf. 

But you go ahead and think that. Just don’t do it on my blog any more.  Now that I’m done helping one of my kids with their tax return, my blocking finger is getting a workout for Asks like this, etc. So bugger off.

So Sherri, was it really that painful to watc? I didn’t have a link for the panel so I didn’t watch it, but I’d like to know your opinion since you’re one of the few people who’s still trying not to overreact to everything. I know it was a more professional environment, but I read they both made some not so nice/awkward comments (especially Cait). What do you think?

Nah. Not painful at all. It was a professional event with Academy members so I think they were all a little more guarded and stiff at first. Tom (editor Gold Derby, and panel moderator) started off shaky, but I think everyone found their flow. It w…

I really can’t with this famdom sometimes. A few RC pictures of them not exactly looking happy and all of a sudden they hate each other. We go from one extreme to the next so quickly it hurts my head. Did Sam just not post a cute photo of Cait on the Starz IG saying how good she looked? Guess that gets forgotten about because we didn’t get a photo of them wrapped around each other. Truly sad.

I don’t know if I would say sad, but it is something I find personally frustrating.  There’s enough to take on face value (good and bad) and enough obvious BS that we tend to spin ourselves up un-necessarily when we try to read things that aren’t there.

People also forget that at the very least, their immediate boss (RDM) was there if not others from either Starz or LGF.  There is probably a lot of pressure on them to act friendly but with nothing that can be mis-interpreted.  Ask yourself why that is?  Co-stars who have SOs in other shows are still very friendly on red carpets.  If the grapefruit is a mango, then they are threading a very tough needle.

And I also saw several pictures where they had very nice smiles.

I’m also reading people’s comments about the panel and wondered if I watched the same hour.  I really enjoyed some of the questions from the audience (what a difference when industry people ask the questions) and some of the answers.  You can tell the answers everyone gave were to describe the amount of work and detail that goes into the show.  The 13 minute opening of the S3 summary was well done.   Remember, this was like a political pre-election town hall where they are trying to get people to vote for them.   Good actors don’t always make good off-the-cuff comments. 

I thought Sam and especially Cait, looked distracted/nervous (maybe jetlagged?) at the beginning but the moderator was horrendous. Truly awful.  He tried to be funny and wasn’t .  He kept looking through his notes.  But I disagree with anyone who says they looked angry.

I thought they relaxed or got their second wind about a third of the way through and starting joking and smiling.  Cait gave a lovely answer about Sam’s performance in 301 and even ribbed him about not giving as effusive an answer back. 

I think she tried to correct herself when talking about Frank and Claire’s marriage being real life but not hers because that marriage was far worse than an average relationship.  Anything more feels like reading too much into that.  It also tells me that she’s aware that people read into every syllable she utters.

My favorite answer was about how Claire learns to compartmentalize.  Something tells me Sam and Cait try to do that too.  The only time they can’t is when they are playing a role in their real life that isn’t truly them, IMO.  And I think we have started seeing some of that with Cait in the past couple of months.

But the one thing that has me most intrigued is the gold band that seemed to play musical fingers today…
