John & Abigail Can Be Yours

Contest time. I have a copy of HBO's acclaimed John Adams miniseries to give away. It stars Paul Giamatti and The Lovely Laura Linney as John & Abigail Adams. Neither have won Oscars yet but other trophies will be coming their way.

Sing along now...
Bewigged and patriotic
Completely non-myopic
The Power Couple (embryonic)
were the Adams Family.

Giamatti & Laura Linney
are splendid in this mini
The Emmys are a gimme
for the Adams Family.
To enter the contest please send an e-mail by Saturday June 14th with "John Adams" in the subject line. You must be 14 or older to enter and your e-mail must contain the following:
  • Your full name
  • Your mailing adress (It will be kept private)
  • Your favorite line of dialogue as uttered by either Paul Giamatti or The Lovely Laura Linney from any film in their filmography. (Make sure to say which film!)
The winner will be drawn randomly and announced Monday June 16th. John Adams is just out on DVD so if you don't win you can always rent it.

do u realize that their sex scene was considered one of the top 10 unsexiest scenes of all times?


foreign readers can always participate in my contests. I love my international peeps. (NOTE: any foreign readers should know that the prizes are always US formats though so you need a region free DVD player if you want to enjoy any prizes I offer)

I am gaga for this miniseries (actually already own it). And while Paul and Laura were both fab, I gotta shout out Tom Wilkinson (always great), David Morse (spooky similar to GW) and Stephen Dillane (who stole the show).


isn't Stephen Dillane fabu? I thought he was great (and sexy) in Savage Grace too.

I'm not entering the contest, but I wanted to poach this line from American Splendor...

Joyce Brabner: You know, I don't really know what to expect. Sometimes you look like a younger Brando... but then the way Crumb draws you, you look... like a hairy ape, with all these wavy, stinky lines undulating off your body. I don't really know what to expect.

Harvey Pekar (Giamatti): No, those are motion lines. I'm an active guy!

Stephen Dillane is indeed amazing in everything I've seen him do. Where was his Oscar nom for The Hours? That train station scene was as much his as it was Kidman's.
