This reminds me... My favorite part of #TheCrown when Diana was dating the doctor and he was feeding her snacks and taking her to movies
She was like "let me in that mouth boy"

And buddy was like "oh no" twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
She was ready to make buddy the snack

1/ So where to begin this thread? Oh, I know. The #SussexSquad and all Meghan's acolytes who seem to think #TheCrown is depicting actual history. Let me elaborate. I've been a rather armchair historian, specializing in mostly on the Russian Imperial Family going back to 1613 ...
2/ I've studied the full Romanov family tree and watched pretty much every documentary out there made on the history of #TheRomanovs. I've also watched the various films and television shows made on #TsarNicholasII and the causes of WW I. This is my book collection as proof. ImageImage
3/ I have seen the 1972 Franklin J. Schaffner film, #NicholasandAlexandra. The 1974 series #FallofEagles. The 1996 Alan Rickman film #Rasputin. I've seen practically ever single documentary on the family and the events surrounding the #BolshevikRevolution and have many books ...

So I’m watching #TheCrownNetflix season 5 and I find this lovely subtle piece of #RussianPropaganda :

A short 🧵
#TheCrown #TheCrown5 #TheCrownSeason5
1) Why is Ukraine still THE Ukraine? For historical accuracy of what it was referred to as back then? You don’t care much for accuracy when you invent private dialogue between the characters …
2) Why was this moment included at all? It has no purpose in the show.

🧵Should you watch #TheCrown?

Netflix has been accused of re-traumatising both William and Harry by depicting the final moments of their mother's life and the walk behind her coffin in S5. Now they are recreating the Bashir interview that William called to never be aired again.
“It is my firm view that this Panorama programme holds no legitimacy and should never be aired again.

“It effectively established a false narrative which, for over a quarter of a century, has been commercialised by the BBC and others."

- Prince William, Dyson Report statement.
"My mother driving, being chased by three, four, five mopeds with paparazzi on. She was almost unable to drive because of the tears.”

“Being too young. Being a guy, but too young to be able to help a woman. In this case, your mother.

Prince Harry, 2021

#TheGildedAgeHBO es una serie de época con el presupuesto de una saga de superhéroes que hará las delicias de cualquier admirador medio de #DowntonAbbey, #TheCrown o #EdithWharton.

Como en otras mil series, aquí los protas son los más ricos de Nueva York... pero en una época
fascinante, finales del siglo XIX, en la que la ciudad estaba inmersa en un momento de enormes cambios políticos y sociales, y en la que económicamente crecía como la espuma para convertirse en la capital del mundo que sería desde, quizás, el final de la Primera Guerra Mundial.
La narración se centra en la lucha de poder entre los nuevos ricos (burgueses de nueva cuña que habían hecho inmensas fortunas gracias al desarrollo industrial y financiero) y a los viejos ricos, descendientes de los primeros ingleses llegados a la isla, poseedores de rango,

The actor is playing the role of Princess Diana in fifth and sixth season of the hit Netflix series.
glamourmagazine.co.uk/article/the-cr…
New images taken during filming for #TheCrown show Elizabeth dressed as Diana, in sunglasses, striped trousers and an oversized navy blazer with gold military-esque buttons – at first glance, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was an old shot of the Princess of Wales herself.
The photos were taken in Croydon and show Elizabeth jumping into a taxi as the press follow her – a scene that often played out in Diana's own life, as she was famously hounded by the tabloids.

No es justo comparar la aparición televisiva de la duquesa de Cambridge con el discurso de Felipe VI. Así que vamos a hacerlo con el de Isabel II (spoiler: la humillación todavía es peor 🤦‍♀️) #theCrown #escenografia

Ayer hice un mini hilo sobre gambito de dama y hoy voy a hacer otro sobre the crown.
¡No os creáis todo lo que cuenta the crown!
La gran mayoría de lo que cuenta no se parece mucho a la realidad
Por ejemplo. Margaret no estuvo con Rody Llewellyn unas vacaciones de verano. Estuvo 8 años, 8 y al final el la dejó por una mujer más joven. Sin embargo siguieron siendo amigos hasta la muerte de ella y el asistió a su funeral
Podría seguir dando en cada capítulo todas las inexactitudes pero es que entonces este hilo sería más largo que un día sin pan. Vamos a concentrarnos en Carlos, Camila y Diana.
Es cierto que Carlos tenía una relación con Camila antes de conocer a Diana. Pero...

I was lucky enough to serve on #AFIAwards jury again. PLOT TWIST: Everyone on 2020 jury considered both TV & film (that was eligible; FYI some shows/movies not eligible, I literally don't make the rules). Anyway I can now issue a ruling on whether film or TV is better... 1/2
...unexpected development: They are both Good.
#Minari, #Nomadland, #BetterCallSaul, #OneNightInMiami, #TheGoodLordBird, #TedLasso, #TheCrown, #SoundofMetal #TheQueensGambit = just a few of the projects on the 2020 roster of #AFIAWARDS. They are excellent! Listen to Ted! 👇afi.com/news/afi-award…
