Helen Mirren. Last night, she won the Oscar for best dress, best makeup, and best-looking actress over the age of 25. I was surprised to learn she lives in California. I think to all of us, she will forever be Jane Tennyson, charging around the mean streets of London, and looking decidedly more haggard than she did last night.
On another awards front, yesterday the Telegraph came out with a list of the top 50 mystery writers of all time, and I'm sure they're still regretting it. Because...there were some serious omissions to this list, apart from the fact no Midnight Ink authors made the list. The most glaring omission was P.D. James (I have met Ms. James and she, like Helen Mirren, scores off the chart in the charm category), but there were others. See for yourself.
