#EMMYS: WILL HBO’S “GIRLS” BE THE DARK HORSE TO TAKE IT ALL?
With just four days till the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, I'm finally catching-up on HBO's Girls after having stock-piled Episodes on my PVR. The Dramedy Series is nominated for an impressive five Awards already in its first Season, already winning Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series. With my post-TIFF Cold, finally I had reason enough to sit-down lie-down and discipline myself to watch all of its first Season. One part Sex & the City, one part balls-out Judd Apatow-esque funny, ...

#TIFF12: MR. WILL & THE STARS OF TIFF 2012
TIFF 2012 was another great Festival. The fact that Toronto plays Host to such a prestigious and glamorous event is a true testament to the level of respect the Film Industry has for our City.

This year I met many Stars and my only regret ...
