From Michelle Pfeiffer to Sonic's Breakfast Toaster, It's a Gold Medal Day – Muddy River News

Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman in “Batman Returns” (Warner Bros.) 1992

Daily Dirt of Tuesday, March 22, 2022

Michelle Pfeiffer joins Denzel Washington atop our favorites list… Welcome to Today’s Three Thoughts and Vol. 240 of daily dirt.

1. As promised on Monday, here are my 10 favorite actresses of all time today:

  • 1. Michelle Pfeiffer: I will make the same comment today about Michelle that I made Monday about Denzel Washington. I don’t think Pfeiffer ever made a bad movie. She has proven her star status in all genres of movies. Favorite movie: “The Fabulous Baker Boys” (1989).
  • 2. Meg Ryan: I don’t know what Meg was thinking when she had drastic plastic surgery about 15 years ago, but it pretty much ended her career. She won this position for her films before this decision. Favorite movie: “When Harry Met Sally” (1989).
  • 3. Emma Thompson: I’ve always thought Thompson was one of the most underrated actresses of our time. Favorite movie: “Love in fact” (2003).
  • 4. Susan Sarandon:While filming “Bull Durham,” Sarandon met and fell in love with actor Tim Robbins, who played the memorable Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh. Just another reason baseball was, is, and always will be the best game. Favorite movie: Bull Durham (1989).
  • 5.Julia Roberts: She burst onto the scene in “Mystic Pizza” in 1988 and has been a megastar ever since. Favorite movie: “Notting Hill” (1999).
  • 6. Jodie Foster: Has it really been 31 years since she originally played Clarice? Favorite movie: “The silence of the lambs” (1991).
  • 7. Julianne Moore: Far from a household name in this particular category, Moore was nominated for four Oscars during a stellar but somewhat overlooked career. Favorite movie: Boogie Nights (1997).
  • 8. Meryl Streep: Often described as the “best actress of her generation”, with whom I can’t argue… I just didn’t like all of her films. Favorite movie: “Madison County Bridges” (1995).
  • 9. Sandra Bullock: She’s one of the few “A”-list talents who can be compelling in a dramatic or comedic role. favorite movie: “The blind side” (2009)”.
  • 10. Helene Mirren: Incredibly underrated and such a versatile talent. She’s played a variety of major roles, but I think I enjoy her the most in a romantic comedy. Favorite movie: “Red” (2010).

2. Who likes a good breakfast sandwich at a fast food restaurant? This guy. And here are the three he likes the most:

Gold medal: Sonic’s Breakfast Toaster, which includes a sausage patty (or bacon), scrambled egg (hold the cheese) on toast is the gold standard.

Silver medal: Burger King’s Croissan’wich, which comes in several models, is also a quality choice.

Bronze medal: McDonald’s Egg McMuffin is still a solid choice after all these years. For the record, the Egg McMuffin became a reality in 1971.

3. Let’s wish a happy birthday to:

  • Actress Keri Russell, who turns 46 today. She is best known for her role in the television series “The Americans”.
  • Football analyst, sometimes comedian and former star quarterback Peyton Manning, who turns 46 on Thursday.
  • Actress Jennifer Grey, who turns 62 on Saturday. Remember her on “Dirty Dancing” when she traded moves with the late great Patrick Swazye?
  • country singer Kenny Chesney, who checks in at 54 on Saturdays. Thanks to him, tractors are now sexy.
  • Singer Mariah Carey, who turns 52 on Sunday. When was his last hit song?
  • Country singer Reba McIntire, which hits 67 on Monday. Have you seen on “Young Sheldon”? She has a recurring role.
  • reality TV actor Jonathan Van Nessfrom Quincy, who turns 35 on Monday.
  • Actress Lucy Lawless, who turns 54 on Tuesday. She is still best known for her days as Xena the Warrior Princess.

Steve thought about the day — Steve once dreamed of being a member of the Grass Roots and backing up on a recording of “Midnight Confessions.”
