Best Moments of the Golden Globes 2021
"Think of the globes as an entertainment event that are really big. Audience still watches in part because a lot of people see it as the kickoff for oscar season. Let me just say if you're queasy about these awards being granted any weight at all you will get. I think no argument from us. That is certainly not our position so to the degree that they mean much. There certainly were some good property. Some good movies and television that were honored Start with nomad land. Which one sort of the top top movie prize. Best motion picture drama and also best director for chloe jau. We just covered this Recently on pop culture happy hour so we don't necessarily need to rehash that whole thing but we were big fans. I loved seeing khloe jowl win. Yeah yeah The top prize for a motion picture. Musical or comedy went to borat subsequent film a movie that i like to say not for linda's but i know people who who love it really love it also winning for that was sasha baron cohen who won best actor for a musical or comedy. The best actor in a drama this one delivered one of the best moments of the night for sure that award went to chadwick boseman for my rainey's black bottom boy that was that was quite a moment accepting the award on his behalf was his wife. Taylor simone lead word and look the globes are trashy and meaningless and then something real happens out of nowhere and that was a really effective speech and a really effective moment in an evening. That felt shambolic in chaotic. Otherwise something beautiful something inspiring something that would amplify that little voice inside of all of us that tells you can tell you to keep going calls you back to what you were meant to be doing. At this moment in history he would think it kind of felt similar to the moment of that whole series of heath. Ledger getting his posthumous awards for his role in dark knight and it felt really earned and it didn't phillips just because he had passed away like this was the role of a lifetime for him and i'm really glad to see him being honored in that way. Yeah it was a very very moving speech. If you didn't see it. I encourage you to seek it out. It's all over the place that award. I think was wonderful to see not too surprising. One that i think was surprising was Andrew day for the united states versus billie holiday aisha. You saw this to the surprising not too much. I think that there was a lot of buzz for her. And i think that it was more likely she was going to win award for this. Then she might be to win for an oscar if she were to get an oscar nomination but she does a really great job of sounding like billie holiday without sounding too much like her like. It's feeling like mimicry. And she is by far the best thing about the movie and we'll actually be covering it in our tomorrow so everyone can check it out fantastic. I'm extremely excited. I haven't seen it yet. In addition to that the first award of the night actually in of of presentation was daniel. Columbia for judas. The black messiah. They had a little glitch with his audio. You know they were figuring it out. We've all had that glenn said the motto of the pandemic was going to remind your muted. It was a little bit of a mom. You're muted kinda moment. But i was not surprised that he that he won that he's wonderful in that movie. I think you didn't pay on. Is this on. Is this on a cool cool. He really is. And it's a solid win. I mean like he started speaking and you heard millions of voices crying out. You're on mute. Dan mute and i think that moment should make the montage in years to come if there is still a golden globe sincere to come because who knows but like that will be the most emblematic acceptance speech of two thousand twenty one easily that will crystallize this moment in time.

So let's start off with best picture drama in which the nominees are Nomad Land. This is the amazing movie with Frances McDormand. Who, you know, play. Somebody who's her life is sort of falling apart and she gets in a van and hits the road and lives in RV camps and recreational areas taking on you know little seasonal jobs along the way. It zest a very sweet and very thoughtful, touching movie. I think this is going to be the big winner for tonight. You know People love Frances McDormand. I think that this is gonna have a lot of Lot of success at the Golden Globes tonight. It will be up against the trial of the Chicago Seven, which, if Nomad land doesn't win trial of the Chicago Seven is going to win. This is the Aaron Sorkin. The written and directed production about the famous Chicago seven trial that took place in Chicago 50 years ago.

But you know the fact that he passed away the young age and nobody knew that he was fighting cancer. I think that probably is going toe play into the Planted the decision making also for best movie, musical or comedy. The nominees are Boer at subsequent movie film Hamilton. When they put together a television version of Hamilton in the put it on Disney. Plus, this got nominated. The motion picture called Music was nominated, as was the comedy with Andy Sandberg, Palm Springs. And the Ryan Murphy directed production. The prom.

And, uh, Anya Taylor, Joy dominated for the movie called Emma for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy. Sasha Baron Cohen is nominated James Corden from the prom Lin Manuel Miranda from Hamilton Dev Patel for the personal history of David Copperfield and Andy Sandberg. For Palm Springs again.

Hollywood Won’t Quit the Golden Globes, Despite No Black Members and a Corruption Scandal
"Maybe this'd year's awards ceremony is wrapped in controversy because of the composition of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is the group that gives out the Golden Globe Award. Unlike the Academy Awards, which are given out by the academy that's about 6000 people. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is about 90 people, and they're all reporters. There, guys like me, men and men and women like me reporters that cover entertainment and they're the ones that give, you know, decide and give up The Golden Globe awards, but The controversy is here that it was learned that not a single member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association astonishingly is a person of color.

You know almost right down to the to the periods ecommerce though that if you've had any vocal training is where it comes in handy knowing breaths and pauses and so on and so forth so so yeah oh august makes you use all of you all of your technical skills. You example like what's line where we're just when heard what you what you will do what i'm undo about. Everybody everybody on that whole soliloquy was a breath exercise. You know where you take the pause out. Police comes up. So it's almost like Playing a musical instrument you know you've been acting since you were twelve years old. But when you got your first part which was in the original production of a raisin in the sun. It wasn't because you were a kid who aspired to be an actor. How did you end up. Going to the audition. Well it was because of the friendship between my mother was a single parent. She and i living in the west village in the fifties and she being friends with lorraine hans berry who was enough constant another black woman living in the same neighborhood and so offensive develop between those two and it just so happened that miss ansberry had written his play in that there was a pot for a little boy my mother said and she said that the very wanted to know if you'd be interested in trying out for the pie additioning had no intention of being in a plane so my first question I'll do it if it doesn't interfere with with my baseball game on saturday. Would it interfere and if you get this. It could very well interfere with your baseball game on saturday with to baseball games on sundays. So at any rate i auditioned. I didn't know what those other kids sitting in the hallway waiting sitting there waiting for. Because i had read the play and i knew that it was overall for just one little boy in it and my understanding was that was me. So what these other guys doing sitting out here waiting for you know so it was good thing. I didn't know what audition was. Because i'm matica nervous. If i knew that we were all competing for the same role. Was your mom. Like a super hip lady. Yes she was a super hip lady. She had super hip friends. James baldwin rain hens buried jack klugman red summers all. These people were friends in the in the neighborhood of village where i grew up. Did you mom were. She was a post worker. Actually i remember helping her. Try to pass the test remembering all the zip codes of manhattan in the having to pass that test but that came afterwards you know. He was a waitress at sometimes. Some some of the restaurants made know about in the village back in the day. You know any kind of jobs that keep us humble apartment alone west ten streak so she did many different jobs but she died. Were working in the post office. Which was her. we're going to post on. You had a sense of stability. You know i was able to leave the play on broadway raisin which was bringing in a steady in a steady check which was a good check and kept us afloat until she was able to get on her feet with which she was aspiring to do and then i left the play because i wasn't interested in following that path of of a performer. You know i was interested in other things you know as a kid growing up in manhattan you know interested in like i said ballgames and i was interested in certain degrees of thuggery. But i kept getting these roles. After 'cause i did raisin you know i became the go-to of black kid. You know whenever there was a part of that needed a child of color in the so. I ended up doing a lot a lot of different things working with david. Suss guy who's lick producer of the time Lot of television was live television playhouse. Ninety and stuff like that. So i you know i ended up working with james caan. Robert redford foot piece called monday. That was About integrating schools and believe it or not redford con bad guys. You know they go.

"rainey" Discussed on Queer as Fact
"And then to potentially have the situation is fate queer identity it's been created for her specifically for the purpose to sell records. Yeah yeah there's so many ways. Yeah like if she's got this marketable butch woman queer identity which in her everyday life expression at all. Yeah yes it despite a layers of fake and real quick not having the suit ma in the modern day and especially because she is depicted in the film. When you're rating kind of people talking about the historical figure but through the context of the film is on honesty as queer and talks about as queer as such a like reverse situation of the usual historical whether as like a wealth of friends being like. oh yes when. She went out with a go friend and kissed. It was very sweet. Yes and then. Everyone's like oh what good friends they must have been. Yes while in this case it's like wait knife. A one hundred percent show will probably but like everyone else is like my rainy and specifically referred to as bisexual which also never see. Yeah i i like. It's refreshing. I'm not mad about it. Even though i feel like there's more historical analysis to be done so like viola davis who played in the film for example has spoken about mars bisexuality in interviews. And she's kind of talked about prove it on me. The song is an example of this and she talks about the way the smarts pride and her sexuality and says she was unapologetic about his sexuality feel like playing. I had to honor that. I don't care how uncomfortable paypal feel with bisexuality. Rainy was bisexual. Which is nice. Live later nice to you know this also interesting. 'cause i didn't necessarily get the feeling that she was bisexual watching film. Well i mean she definitely has the thing going on with dusty may. Yeah that's very clear. Yeah we don't say how with any men. And i think that's the interesting thing here is that it's sar common that even in the face of a wealth of evidence that someone's bisexual people will be like. I guess the lesbian. Yeah so interesting therefore Saying this person is bisexual. And i wanted to play her like that and i wonder if there will be some scenes or anything from the like play into the middle so i mean once violet davis i guess has the historical context of knowing that marini is into his men and women probably like we know she's married yet. She married twice. We know that she. Maybe i'll go from like if davis has that context it make sense for her to be like i s. I knew she was bisexual. Woman wanted to honor that. Like how else is she going to speak about that knowing about reina's even if her attraction to men never comes up we say her with doc- million the film by. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Yeah kind of like. Throw it out the window just because the audience aren't we one yeah of rainy sexuality and violence unlike all the in this film but like violent. Is they go really deep into the character. Unlike what we see is like a tiny of like what she understands about mine. How she's thinking about like. I think if via dave is talking about ma she's understanding my whole life. She's not thinking about what you saw on. Yeah okay that makes sense. Yeah talking about that. A picture of mars the film. I did read one her. Take off the depiction of Between ma and does he may so taylor hosking who is a writer for the women's magazine. The lily argues that the film is a negative. an outdated portrayal of female bisexuality. To argument is basically that wilson who is a straight and light skinned black man comprehend. How a woman could be attracted to a dark skinned not conventionally attractive black woman and therefore has created this relationship where doc- appears to be interested in math for her luxurious lifestyle. And her money. And you don't really see a like genuine relationship between the two of them. I definitely think it's one of those situations. Where because you only say one queer relationship immune if you don't perceive that relationship well then it doesn't come across a good representation of people of the feeling that i got watching. That was this vibe. That like marini was like all the maybe a little bit pasta prime and kind of clinging to doc- may like that's sort of the vibe. You get when you say like like everyone's warning levy to be afraid of what was going to do if she finds out that. Hey spain with doc- met with jesse young and meanwhile doc- may has no problem at all in the film. Like being with ma and then turning around to saints light or unlocking has often the rehearsal room Yeah so you do get the impression in the film. But ma is much more invested in dossier than dossier he may is. Yeah i don't think hoskins comments come out of nowhere. And like i i fully why she said what she said. I didn't think it will. I watched the movie. But i see why if you quite excited. Sam movie about rany who this queer icon which is kind of the way she writes about it. She's like i was excited and then i was disappointed if you had that going in. You be like all that was it. That's the queer relationship you're gonna give me. Yeah i definitely think if you're going into this movie as a fan of marini as quick icon. You would be disappointed in this movie. It's a very good exploration all like rice in the us. I say as a white person. Nothing about this to be clear. But it seemed very insightful to me in ways i don't think it was insightful about the queasiness. Yeah no. I agree with you. That get seventy Yeah i think to me like the shallowness of the relationship between ma and dossey is kind of reflective of what we were told earlier of the way in which mog got kind of line four in the film. Yeah yeah not Totally understand that interpretation that this critic has given in terms of this feeling kind of like the director doesn't understand That kind of queer desire. But yeah i can kind of see how from the lie rights perspective once. You have kind of sideline marta than you're kind of investing more into levy as a car than the contrasting the relationships and the nature of the going after him kinda like it feels more like mechanical. Yeah like the reason. Why duffy is not super close with ma is because her getting levy is part of the Yeah that's true. yeah. I do feel like dulcie feels as we talked about as address to la irene. She feels a bit like undeveloped in terms of her role in like what she is representing in terms of black culture and so therefore her relationships also failed kind of developed. A couple of deepa melt necessarily flaws but deepa issues. That if you're going into this play eldest movie expecting one hundred experience will then lead to the client experience the of describing ieng that stream. Interestingly going back to ma sexuality is talked about today..
"rainey" Discussed on Queer as Fact
"Ad for new record which depicted ma dressed in a man's suit and flooding with two women who addressed in traditionally feminine clothing. While a policeman watches them suspiciously. What the text on the ad raids. What's this scandal. Maybe so but you wouldn't have thought it of mar rainy but look at that caught watching her. What does it all mean old. Very say you want wanna go down to chicago and see some singers. Be gay. know what that means. Because i'm an old tiny announcer so the song was called privet on me blues in which takes on the role as the picture implies of a butch woman singing about a masculine presentation and her relationships with women of alerts like explicitly about a masculine woman. Yes like she sings about the lines. Like i went out last night in my caller. And i think like she. She sings about the average she wears when she goes out. But it's like the lyrics. Clearly a woman like join. Get me wrong. I guess as a queer woman singing songs that have that like plausible deniability. This is from the point of view of a man thing is absolutely a thing that quit women singing lyrics like explicitly. From the point of view of a woman. I would be quite interesting. I would like for example. And i could hear the whole song probably the best way to do it but like we went through that on this. Podcast one on the buses goes. I went out last night with a crowd of my friends. Must've been women. Because i don't like no men wear my clothes just like a fan talk to the girls just like any old man yeah. It's really singing. I'm a woman who is fulfilling the role of man. Like i'm a masculine woman is like very clear. And especially when you consider with that ad like it is her dressed in a suit. Yeah it's it's more of a stretch to interpret that as a singing in Man than it is to interpret. Atas her singing in the persona or woman who dresses like a man. Yeah it's not really about plausible deniability here. Yeah yeah that's pretty awesome. Yeah it is pretty cool. So i leave. Describes proven me blues as a path statement of lesbian defiance and self worth and she talks about how the lyrics acknowledged the disapproval of society. Says a line which is like sam crooked full-time about the women's relationships with the line i want the whole world to nine yet.

Adopting the masculine presentation that is depicted in that ad. Nobody else talks about it all in her life and that is as much of a focus of the song as the singer sexuality. So she's kinda taking on the sign all of this bush woman rather than talking herself because of the way the label was so obviously playing this que- image in the ad. Mary catholic a recent master's thesis about the queen of mall and gladys bentley suggests that mas que- image may have been something completely fabricated by paramount or than something herself decided to sort of go public with us being.

"And we'll discuss. Ooh so let's talk about bessie too. So you know he s. He was eight years younger than my and she came from chattanooga in tennessee so that was a rumor that ma had discovered busy as a performer. While my herself was touring in chattanooga and then this rumors on tell us ma had kidnapped her and taken her to teaching how to sing to too sexy. I couldn't find any source for this room. I i literally. I never found it written down like there was a room that i didn't find anyone even claiming that it was true but it existed in ma embassies lifetime and bessie sister-in-law more recalls the two of them like sitting around laughing about the fact that the story exists so in reality. Bessie had worked her first professional job as a dancer in one thousand nine hundred twelve in a traveling showing which ma had also performed. So it's likely smith Part of the same forming troop and then then candidate again at the eighty one theater. Bessie always denied. Mas influence on her career and the claim that had told her to sing the blues. That's probably because they professionally filled quite similar spaces. They are recording at the same time. And kind of feeling the same niche in the market. So you wanted to distinguish yourself and not be seen as kind of like a less a momma's prodigy or anything like that personally. However they were friends and possibly more than friends as we'll discuss in a moment so they were very different. People vesey was nine. Have a very fiery temper. She drank hard. she'd often get into fights. Ma considered to be like a very warm and nicely spike in passing. She wouldn't let people drink at shows she wouldn't swear and so on. So the ma rainey who is depicted in the movie is not particularly accurate to what we know how marini was or was she just like different interacting with her recordings to your manager paypal because it was held she is described later in life as like becoming less woman generous and wetering matty young. Emma here yet definitely comes across in the movie. I fell the ma kind of has experienced somewhat of a full from grace by the time the events of the movie are occurring and the us based on a relationship with her girlfriend hind with her relationship with the other band members aside from levy. Who's obviously a recent addition. That kind of she's a little bit kind of cursing by on good new amazed on having been a lot nicer day. And i think it's also like this is taking place in the south and in the film we say was an older person in the north like vastly different environment. Where like in the north Fighting a lot more with for respects from what people. And i think that's a lot of the character we say in the film whereas in the south she's much more among black people performing much more to slide for black audience citadels performed for white mixed ordinances but she's much more kind of in a black space. Yeah when she's not that. And i guess in the north pole so i come across in the movie because like several times when things aren't going the way she wants to she said i could go back to the south. I can go back to my touring. Yeah dark this yeah. Yeah so like consistent saying that they go across very strong yeah yom and she also specifically about the cheese being rudes for a specific reason. I come across light to sort of get into a bit of discussion about movie. A does kind of come across like she's being fighting so much in the north that it's kind of infected interactions. Yeah yeah that's true today. But at the same time like you to contrast celeste. Her nephew like very kind. Very patient with sylvester and she talks about like. Oh you know you're gonna take this money home and give it to your mom and tele how you doing in like that's a very different side through say that as well. Yeah yeah you get kind of hints that ten years you can kind of see. How yet like this still but tenderness with her family member of these all. The black musicians She clearly at some point with at least was quite good friends with client quite distant from. Yeah yeah you drive that one conversation. She has with kat low as she kind of talks about the importance of the blues on that like they have quite a nice touch in conversation where they sit around kind of talk about what they're doing and the music thing. Yeah you kind of see that connection that she has her band members. Yeah it actually. I think it would have been good to rise. Not necessarily aware with. Playwright was aware of this But the thing have buying instruments savannah's. Yeah that would have been a good thing to be run into that. I have like indicate. Y exactly the alabama Loyal to her. That would've made like sought chuck contrast to the way that the recording studio is trading oil And like the stinginess at like whole final section of that movie before commodities down is. Everyone likes struggling to get paid and being like no. I need it in cash. Not a check or you have to pay this person. Here's earn wage. You can't take it out of my way and levy getting like five dollars a pace for his song Being generous by contrast i guess. Yeah yeah yeah. I think that would have been a good thing to include on august. Wilson did not. I think august wilson honestly dealt well with a lot of. There's a look in that movie. And i think a lot of it's very well handled. Yeah i think there are some things that like. Some pieces of media like book supplies whatever the annual like. this is almost made to be studied. Yeah like rather than just made to be watched and be like. Oh yeah like. It's made to be like picked apart and studied and like written essays about. Yeah i feel like that would go down extremely well as like a high school. Yeah yeah so to move on from that. He map ma and bessie mazda. Sam chapman said in an interview. I believe ma was quoting vesey. I believe while the other of them was the man..

"Blues itself had been around for much longer so they grew out of african american work songs which in turn will based off west african traditions and it was spread throughout the american south by itinerant workers in the second half of the nineteenth century and that was gradually taken up by minstrel shows and further popularized. That way so going back to mas life at seventeen mom married fellow. Performer will rainy more often as power rainy the moment they what are you going to do about it pretty much she asked they were on this like minstrel serb for a long time so by the time they were kind of finishing up and she was moving onto her recording career which will talk about later they were older performance and they kind of were just like the mom and dad of the minstrels. So that's why cold martin. Parr they also fostered quite a few children. I couldn't find much information about most of these children. One was called danny and he performed as part of their shari's he did female impersonations and he danced aunt. Okay but there were other chosen. I believe they didn't have any biological children. They did foster children or adopt children today to around as pot of various minstrel shows for the first few decades of the twentieth century including touring from nineteen fourteen. Two nine hundred sixteen as rainy and rainy assassinated blues. That's quite bad. I'll see an excellent name. It is good tomorrow in particular grew increasingly famous as to it. She had a very strong voice. Switch was particularly important at this time before there was any electronic amplification to also nine dancing and comedy skits which unfortunately we have my record of because unlike him music than we'd never recorded as my phone fame sometimes also be contracted to perform at white parties. Although heck atara. Sam chapman calls while she was popular with white audiences. She always preferred black audiences and often these parties. She could generally be found at local cafes hanging out with other african american people. So as i mentioned ma did play a maternal role to the other performance. Hence the name mall and she was also very supportive of them including financially pianist. lionel happen. Who knew her. A little later in life but i think this is evidence of a character and probably similar to what she did at the time said of her. I used to dream of joining my rainey's banned because she tweeted musician so wonderfully and she always bought them an instrument. Oh nice yeah. So thomas dorsey. Who worked at the eighty-one theater in atlanta georgia also recalls ma coming into the theater to teach other women there to sing including bessie smith who walked to earn very successful blues career from that same theater in the mid to late. Nineteen ten or save as smith was in the movie. Yeah bessie smith wasn't the movie. So that kind of professional rivalry which is addressed in yet was the professional rivalry in real life like antagonistic. Oh we'll discuss. Was it romantic..

"Very sort of twenties fashionable metaxas. Yeah and the actress played taylor. Page has talked about how she kind of envisioned dossiers characters being someone who's growing up in the south and had grandparents would have been slaves and she would have grown up poor and like she's come to chicago and she's just trying to grab hold of this lifestyle she's been promised and obviously as a black woman in chicago style. That you've been promised is not really there for you. Yeah and so. She's trying really hard to like. Be really fashionable in this flapper and take hold of all these opportunities like having sex with levy going to band recording all that kind of thing because that's like the promise of the northern states to her. Yeah and i think that that will make a lot of sense but it wasn't in the phil. Yeah i mean it was sort of like the into that in the film like kind of put that together but it felt like it was just kind of like a bit of a sort of throw the kitchen sink at fame lab because i was never really explored. That character was never really looked at particularly the play. Yeah and i think that is a factor of like the fact that you've got levy and you've got slow. Dragon toledo industy myanma and each of them like representing different black outlook on the migration or different black experience. Different like age and therefore different. Yeah different part of that history and like you could go in analyze. Each of those characters really really deep. But you don't have time when you just sit down and watch the movie. Yeah it was interesting that what ended up being a fire because of that script with levy. Yeah it's just yeah they like interesting characters for like a definitely things in there where i was like this is a real qasim. The nephew sylvester I assume that he was a real person. None of them rant. And i was like he just seems closeable. I would believe that she had an interview with his daughter who she was trying to help into the industry. Yeah i do feel like he felt like a real person in a way that to me really. None of the characters did because he didn't really have as much of a role. Yeah i think. I think he's there to represent like mas connection to a family and even connection to the south and the way that black people move off so he's the to represent what he means to ma he's not there to represent anything in his in riots. Yeah and the acta did quite a good job of giving him still like a bit of personality. Yeah you're just kind of being a nervous younger relative. Yeah yeah whereas like yeah. We sort of get scenes with each of the band where we kind of come to understand what aspect of black culture. Yeah right is trying to get across through that character. Yeah absolutely okay. Let's move on now to ma's biography so we were talking about talking. Let's talk about mine. So i must have my information about. Mark comes from the nineteen eighty one book. Mother of the blue by sandra lee which is based of variety of primary sources including interviews with people who knew newmar its geography time. I'm not asking jason jason action american west georgia in sleight wastage selfish. Okay the is. Georgia is on the cars directly. Norfleet lord south carolina. I believe it has a coastline than it has. A key does indeed. The key factor. Nobody's that jordan is in the off. It's really about shorter so rainy was born in georgia. On april twenty sixth eighteen eighty six. She was named gertrude. Bridget at birth. I tried to call him throughout this episode. Every quite pasini read who knew her called him. I didn't come across anyone who actually cool to gertrude. She was the second of five children of allah and thomas pigeon. Dial information that lee gives has really found about allergan. Thomas that allah worked for the central railway on your job. We don't know what thomas did for a living. He died in eighteen ninety six when i was thirteen. So we also don't have any information about what musical training mom might have had if any formal training at all. I have some second resources that suggests the hour on. Thomas will mas grandmother were built on minstrel performers. and we'll talk about exactly what that entails later on. But i haven't seen any primary sources for those claims so i don't know if that's true or not muhsein fast performance that we know of was in around nineteen hundred so when she would gain about fourteen at the spring opera house in her hometown of columbus georgia where she sung and danced as part of a local talent. Show from this beginning. Mob began traveling and performing around the american south as pot of black minstrel shows so just to get background on what minstrel shows Minstrel shows were originally begun around the eighteen forty by white performers often in black face and they were horiuchi shows with generally based around stereotypes of black people and black trump by the eighteen fifties. Black people were also performing the iron minstrel shari's which started with very similar content. But gradually i have in the next. Few decades began to fight goes on more genuine depictions black culture so these are the kind of shies which moss started out her career. Performing as ma told musicologist john. Wesley worked in in the nineteen thirties. It was traveling with one of these shows in missouri in one thousand nine two that she encountered a woman sing a song about a man who had left her which modest guide as strange. Poignant it immediately caught. Everyone's attention ma. The woman to teach the song and began incorporating it into act where it was a big hit with audiences work than rights many times. She was asked what kind of song it was and one day. She replied a moment of inspiration. It's the blues so this story seems to imply that ma self both popularized named the blues. I was to ask. That doesn't seem that. Sounds very apocryphal. Eilly so she was one of the most famous early blues singers and one of the earliest blues singers whose names we know. But this definitely seems like i'll fake story. Essentially a marketing ploy especially as she went onto tell work all newspaper references to her singing. The blues early career had been destroyed in a fire destroyed defile. My dog ate it of his every single every single newspaper in the entire site. Yup between like that gone one big big fire at the newspaper holes. I wear keeps the newspapers. The one private citizens yes correct. Yes everyone it's worth the time. Blues is fest recorded in writing in reference to the music style. Nine hundred twelve so that is ten years after ma claims to have coined the word but the style of music had definitely been around for much longer. And ma definitely did not single-handedly spread it around the american south which is what she seems to imply the fact that it's in writing in one thousand nine hundred probably suggested in general. Use much elliot. Oh yeah absolutely absolutely and that was kind of a movement starting around nineteen twelve to start writing down blues music so you know it wasn't written down because no one had started writing down blues yet not because it didn't exist. Yeah although the fact that she says she clinton ten years elliott maybe she did it like a little bit of credit. It's true it. Obviously as i said sounds quite apocryphal. But at least the time timeline is not wildly often. She's not like. I invented blues in one thousand nine hundred and blazes in here for one hundred years slapped. Yeah like time line is on the right track. She could have invented in. Nineteen did it. Happen prob- yeah but yeah..

"Get me wrong yet. But she's one of any number of like african american blues singer in like similar situations navigating that like white recording company Situation and it does kind of strike me as odd to bring her in when everything else about. This is fictionalized like the recording studio real. Is that her real manager. Nyuon israel except yeah. That just seems odd to me. A teams padilla given. Yeah what we've just been talking about in terms of her not really being the main character in the movie the play is exactly the yeah and the play is exactly the same then also in play. Yeah like i'm just trying to think if it was a comparatively famous figo who i had hurdle play and you go into the movie and it's named off to them and they only real person there And then they're kind of just like you're playing second-string and not in the majority of the saints. It'd be pretty weird. Yeah i and i agree. I agree with that. And i think the back the like knowing that he had a draft. That folks a lot more on mom makes that make a bit more sense. Because i have never seen that draft. I don't know if that draft still exists. But i would assume that that draft as well as giving more time would have kind of explored more of her life. Yes how she came to me there on everything and possibly had more reason to be more than jane smith up fake blues singer. Who did the same thing. Yeah i can kind of see how light. Yeah if that was your original premise. All do play out any and we'll have this kind of split narrative And then you've invented all these characters to the osthoff that's what narrative and then you realize that the the story that you're trying to tell with those other characters in terms of as you kind of talking about the exploitation of black people in like the the specific tensions that existed between those different kinds of musicians worked better having be between different. African american characters rav between marine uses. Yeah i can kind of see how you so. Stop focusing on that. But then like maybe should've aretha having marina play the place. But i don't know like it's weird. That doesn't necessarily mean that it's bad as a creative decision. Yeah yeah i think yeah your mind. It is confusing. If you go into the film having heard of my rainy. I'm gonna movie about my. Let's see what happened to me yet. And that's not what you see. But yeah i don't think it's bad. It's just kind of odd. When it's not when i didn't like i didn't know anything else about my right knee. Except that i knew she was a blitzing. Somebody had north sort of like landmarks to be like. Oh the rest of this is made up. I was like did. Some of this happened is some of these are real incident in her life. Dramatized one. Yeah yeah and especially because there's a murderer at the end. If that had happened in her life that would make perfect thing to write a play about. So you'd be like this same thing that happened and that somebody decided to explore how and why this happened. That was definitely something. I was kind of withholding judgement on. Because i was like i can very much see how this could be a thing which happened in real life and came out like one of my rinus van members stabbed and other. He's new shoes And then then being like. I want to write a play that gives that some context. Yeah yeah and you can see how that would make sense but that never happened. Yeah that's an invention by august wilson. Yeah i did think that both the and the sex saint what kind of white points of that moving on the sex in worked as a kind of like. It's it's a funny thing is. Yeah yeah yeah. I don't feel like add anything to the real. Yeah yeah. I think it's actually better in the way because like in the play. She kisses him then have set and you know she's kind of like flotation. She's like all not until you have your own band but she maintains that like she kisses him. It's like we're not doing anything until you have known banned but he's going to be famous. Okay come back when you're famous. Then and then she just kind of pulls away and that's anthem makes her. Yeah yeah and. I also think that makes because they never could sort of explicitly show a lot between ma industy may take her relationship with levy to that sort of like socially recognized pinnacle of relationship to a deed. Ring a little bit weird to me. That one of them was sort of like sexual aspect of ma industy maze relationship was shortened to us through a suggestive shot between meals. Nays yeah yeah it does. Create some does hierarchy is a hierarchy. Because there's one that they feel like ham show one that they feel like come gone and that's true and i feel like in that context. They would have been better to pull back on the doc- levy interaction. Yeah and again. You can say that. There's this sort of missing behalf to the narrative where there was sort of something hinted at but never explored about maharani and her relationship with dossey may like what does he standing wasn't that In that whole relationship group and like yeah what she sort of wanted out of her relationship with ma and her relationship with hellenic potential thing with levy which never really got explored. It just sort of came up then was always thread Yeah you can definitely say in terms of it being a hunnam war parallel character drama rather than something. That is more focused on exploring this theme of black exploitation ant the transition from black communities in southbound communities in even definitely see a different version of this wet probably their true sex scenes. One with ma and you'll really like parallel in these charges being like one of them represents this kind of old style blues one of them represents this new style blues. And you're and you're kind. Area explicitly parallel exploring the mice that doc- may holds as like a young black woman in like chicago. Yeah and yeah that was always sort of sheen to that like evening dress and mannerisms and things like Like she had that. Very sort of twenties fashionable metaxas. Yeah and the actress played taylor.

"Hello and welcome to fact. The podcast bringing you quick history from around the world and throughout time. i'm alice. I'm irene jason and today we're talking about the blues. Perform ma rainey and the recent netflix film marines black bottom. We have some content winnings before he begins site is upside will include discussions off historical and present day racism also discussions of meta. If any of that sounds like something. You don't wanna listen to feel free to skip this episode and check out any about all the content so this episode as i mentioned is going to be about both marini as a historical individual and also the recent film which has just come out is black bottom. I haven't structured this to be a and then a discussion of the movie where it was kind of talk about it as it comes up so with that in mind. I want to start off with a brief introduction to the film and its background so we have some background when wet talking about marines black bottom me add last month so in november twenty twenty in some cinemas and on the eighteenth of december on netflix. The film stars viola davis as marini. And it's also. The last film made starring black panther star chadwick boseman before he passed away earlier this year. Marez like bottom directed by african american directed. George c wolfe. He has directed films in the past but he's primarily best nine as a theatre director does so he's won a tiny in nine hundred ninety three as the director of angel in america. Queer play about aids. If you don't know angels in america so this background fits nicely with him. As director of ma rainey's black bottom since the film is adaptation of a play of the same name written by american playwright wilson. The play was first performed in nineteen eighty-four and it opened on broadway in one thousand nine hundred eighty five to rave reviews. It was highly praised for the inside. It provided into lack experience. Frank rich reviewer for the new york times described it as a searing inside account of what white racism does to its victims. The play was saved a tiny nomination for best play and it also launched a very successful playwright in korea full augusta. That's the play and the film set in nineteen twenty seven and the play is one of what's nine as wilson century cycle. So it's a series of ten plays each depicting black experience in a different decade of the twentieth century. All that's also that's also who idea. Yeah so the plays on intended to be historically. Oh by graphically accurate. Sorry in miranda's black bottom except camman. None of the character in the play are real people and specific events of the play on real events instead. Wilson uses the various characters in the plays in this case merani to explore the experience of black people to at different times in american history. So ma rainey's black bottom focuses on the experience of black blues musicians having migrated from america's south and trying to carve out a space and an identity for themselves in america's northern states and it also explores the exploitation and their treatment by white music producers. The play on the film take place over the course of a single recording session tomorrow and her band and it focuses on the conversations and the rising tensions between the characters as they explore the themes i mentioned the black identity and sort of black migration to the north. So it's not a plot heavy playoff film. It's much more of a character and seem plo. Film i definitely didn't rate anything about this movie before i started watching and i got like half an hour in and i was like. Oh i see in this room for the whole time. They don't leave. That's yeah unlike in the film you. Do you see like opens with that saying in a tent. Show in georgia in kinda mas past and you do kinda see them outside. They go to a shopping by co at obviously in the plight because that's how it plays out the in that room and that room. Yeah so the characters. Ma black band members or the slow drag cutler and toledo and then most notably the young hotheaded trumpet. A levy who's played by chadwick. Boseman levy is determined to make on the music scene. In america's northern states by transitioning from mas older southern style of fluids to a new more danceable style which was popular in northern cities. Like chicago new york and then we also have to white characters mars manager urban and the studio in mel stood event and two additional characters brought to the studio by mar nephew sylvester anti young girlfriend. Doc- may the film focuses on the interactions between these characters and ends quite abruptly when levy stems and killed his band toledo obsolete i steps on his new shoes so told me about ma and her life now doing you a bit of background on the film and the play. Do you have any general thoughts on. It was definitely very well acted the they are all incredible actors. Look without knowing anything about malls live. The film was incredibly well acted and well shot the performance scenes. Incredible and i quite life. Some of the saints Didn't think the film spent enough time with mall. I definitely was going to say that as a kind of criticism it definitely sort of struck me as weird having been led to expect a film about mariah need that the film was essentially about a fictional. Young man yeah. Yeah and actually. August wilson right on elliott drafted this play. That was split. Really fifty fifty between the scenes with the band rehearsing levies character and then scenes much more focusing on ma and her interactions with the cases and everything and he took that draft from he was shopping that draft and he realized that he just couldn't have to focus and it wasn't working with a split focus and he said an interview. I had to decide which way to go. And he went with the focus on levy but there was a draw was much more heavily focused on mom. I wonder why he charged to make this about marini who is like a famous figure fictionalized and then a soldier fictional extra characters rather than have a fictional single like any absolutely makes like sense is sort of the historical position that she's in Like she's not out of clocks at all. Yeah exactly but like she's very famous star..

So you're basically watching version of i guess fences or august ausage county. Are you one of those movies. That's just straight adaptation of a play Limited very limited characters but also sets setting funny because august wilson wrote fences. That's also is the same guy. Yeah he he's the one who wrote the play for that and then you went on to say august county. So it's all all august and fences in marini so the you're watching go. No this going into a. You're watching a very straight very toy. Say uninspired this. You're watching a play on the screen and you're not a cinematic experience. That's being a tough on it but yes it was definitely you.

Was this a play. That was my first. I five minutes then. I'm like is this going to expand beyond this Setting or are we. We're getting so limited sets You know they had. They had a budget so it it wasn't for budgetary reasons It just because it was a play. It wasn't it wasn't a very faithful adaptation faithful out of adaptation and it wasn't Guys adapted for the screen as as well as it could have been. I guess right. Is that fair to say like. It could have done more with the camera. They could've done one more. At the sets sandwich fences. I felt like it was so dialogue heavy so driven by the dialogue. This is a verbose movie. It feels like fences it does it. Does i wish. I wish i had dealt a little deeper into the playwrights history because yes it had a very and maybe i was Maybe i i feel like i even rebelled against my own thought which is like this is like like. Oh just because he's black people but it's very similar. Well that's because it was penned by the same man. That's what i'm getting. I wish i delve deeper to find out and not give it in my own race now. I heard some things about this movie. I some glowing reviews Of this movie before it seen it. I try not to do that. You'd want to set yourself up for failure nine percent on rotten tomatoes percent almost they audience which It's about a twenty point different. Because there's there's good things this movie for sure What i heard though was chadwick completely blow away and you forget the viola davis is even in it and honestly i liked her performance a little bit more and i know the price sacrilegious to say since chadwick is no longer with us but I saw version of violence. That i never seen before I saw a version of chadwick. Boseman that i never seen before while both of those things but the chadwick was more of a sick character i he looked sick and he looked pretty amazing. I didn't know that he had passed away or died. And if i didn't know that he was sick I think i would have been impressed with how he changed his demeanor and changed his look. He didn't look anything like black pants. No he was he was very slight noodle jiong you know what i mean. He was very skinny and who knows what it is. How long given a how long before. He passed away film. This no but it was probably less than i would. I would think yeah so. He was great. And i think this is. I don't think it's trite to say. This is the best chad boseman. I've ever seen i. i can't think of one. That's better than this. He was really good he he. He had had a player by master playwright so he has his moments. He has no dialogue. Your chews up the scenery. And he's he's He's a presence. So the story is if you're if you're trying to figure out if you wanna see this story is this essentially ma ma rainey. I always wanted to braemar. Rainy is a based on a real life care per a real singer. Yeah and It's all based around essentially one studio recording of a four tracks of her song back in the nineteen twenty seven. I think it's twenty. Seven is what i remember..

Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman star in 'Ma Rainey'
"The enter chadwick. Boseman died of cancer in august at the age of forty three not long after he finished shooting the movie mall. Rainey's black bottom now streaming on netflix. The movie stars viola. Davis is the famous blue singer mall rainy and was adapted from august. Wilson's play our film critic. Justin chang says that boseman's final screen performance ranks among his very best. One reason chadwick boseman was such. An extraordinary actor was his ability to command the screen without hogging the spotlight. His presence was so quietly magnetic that even when he played real life. Heroes like jackie robinson and thurgood marshall or fictional ones like king to challa in black panther. He still seemed like the most self effacing of movie stars but boseman could also go big like when he took on james brown in the musical bio-pic get on up and gave his most electrifying performance. Until now it's devastating. That ma rainey's black bottom is the last new. Boseman movie will ever see this. Excellent adaptation of august wilson's nineteen eighty to play from the director george c wolfe and the screenwriter ruben. Santiago hudson is both a precious parting gift and a punch in the gut even more than get on up. Boseman holds nothing back. He emptied himself out onscreen. He plays levy a gifted and ambitious trumpet player struggling to forge his way in a white man's world or this case a white man's recording studio where most of the movie takes place. It's a sweltering hot day in nineteen twenty seven chicago in the pioneering southern blues singer ma rainey played by a superb viola. Davis is planning to record some of her most popular songs. Mas name may be in the place title. But she isn't the main narrative focus here much of the story unfolds while the four musicians in her band are waiting for her to show up at the studio. During the rehearsal session cutler the guitar and trombone player played by colman. Domingo wants to stick with their usual arrangement for a particular song but levy wants to use a new edgier version that he composed. It doesn't take long for the arguments to start and the egos to emerge. How's your name in. So i just played a piece whatever they want them. Criticizing the people's music like you. I got talent. Oh man is we tagged. My dad had a note. I was gonna turn out like the name mccabe. I'm going to give me a bad and make some shots. I don't give them instead of my. I wrote and he say going to let me record when i get my band together. I just got last part of song. I got stopped or everybody gets out there. And other keeping the same idea from the beginning in everybody got a game plan for all his outward swagger boseman later lays bare. The anguish beneath levies self-assured grin in a spellbinding monologue about his southern childhood. He reveals the acts of violence that were committed against his family by a gang of white men he's witnessed unspeakable horrors and fought hard for his shot at success. And he's not about to let anyone stand in his way not even marini herself when she finally shows up at the studio via davis who won an oscar for her work. In another wilson. Adaptation fences is magnificent. Here in the kind of full throated diva showcase. She's rarely taken on becoming more rainy. Required quite the transformation davis wears a padded rubber suit and sports. A mouthful of gold teeth and her vocals are supplied by the singer. Maxine lewis but the performance never feels needlessly. Flashy and davis is best moments are the ones in which she shows us. Ma rainey's anxious calculating side when she stops the recording session because no one's brought her the bottle of coke she always insists on before singing. She isn't just causing a fuss. Exactly what she's worth and how much power she commands in a predominantly white male industry and she's determined to push yourself right up to that line without crossing it marines. Black bottom is one of ten plays in august. Wilson's epic pittsburgh cycle and the only one that isn't actually set in pittsburgh wilson's insights into the complexities of twentieth century. African american experience cemented his reputation as one of this country's greatest dramatists. The filmmakers haven't opened up the material in the manner of so many stage to screen adaptations if anything they've ruthlessly tightened the play and paired it down to essentials wolf directs at a furious clip. The sets are spare even drab which has the effect of your concentration on the performances and while boseman and davis are the stars of the show. Every actor gets a chance to shine including michael potts as the bass player. Slow drag and glenn termine reprising his role as the pianist toledo from twenty sixteen revival at the heart of the play is the bond between levy a fictional creation and rainy. A real life figure. The two are antagonistic by nature levy keeps trying to put his own stamp on mas music and he makes the mistake of trying to seduce. Her young girlfriend played by taylor. Page but levy and ma are also kindred spirits. They're both trying to make authentic commercially viable art with an assistant bent on exploiting their talents but levy doesn't have martinis experience or her knack for self preservation and the weight of his past trauma ultimately proves too much to overcome the climax is hunting beyond words were seeing a man peering into an abyss played by an actor who knew his own life was slipping away chadwick.
