Ali Sweeney blog entry 6/29

I actually liked her blog. She was fair to all. I don't hold the fact that she's a Lumi fan against her. She, like all of us, is entitled to her preference. Both BD and GG are her friends, and her family and GG's family do things together. Her friendship off screen comes across on screen with both men, which IMO is why she lacks romantic chemistry with either of them, and oozes it with JS with whom she has no connection with, other than a professional one. It's hard to manufacture chemistry with men with whom you either grew up with, or whose wives and kids you spend time with. Yup, all in all, I like this particular blog.

Good post!! ITA!! I enjoyed this blog and don't have a problem that she's a lumi. I, however, am not. I'm also not a fan of GG's acting, but I can appreciate that she's going to compliment her friend. Your probably right about the chemistry lacking with BD and GG...........they're all good friends, probably reallly comfortable with one another, therefore not so much chemistry.

ROFL I liked this: "This was the first opportunity for me to really see just how talented Galen is." How many scenes has she been in with him since he started? 600?


From her post and from some of her tweets, she is talking about watching the episodes as they air, and not in the perspective of acting out a scene in real time. She has said that she watches the show that she TIVO's or DVR's and watches it when she can. She has complimented everyone in the baby Grace storyline on several occasions and now on her blog. She means that while they were taping the scene that she is a part of, she isn't judging Galen's acting (or anyone else's). She has said recently how much she enjoyed someone's scenes or how they rocked their scene or other such compliments for Ari, James,Bryan, Joe, Dylan, Taylor, and Galen.

After all... tomorrow is another day!

Do they always have a two-week hiatus for Fourth of July or is this a cost-saving thing? I know she's mentioned hiatuses in the past but can't remember if they were for one week or two weeks usually?

So WHAT begins? :rolleyes: If you are referring to fans of one pairing not liking another pairing and posting as such how can you even say it's begun when it's never even stopped?

Anyway, as for Ali's blog, obviously I'm not a big fan of the Lucas and Sami pairing but even the Lumi fan in ME was glad that Lucas and Sami had a scene after Grace's death given how bizarre it was they didn't have him at the funeral or have Will confront Lucas immediately after finding out he knew about the Grace secret along with Sami and Rafe.

Do any BD fans know what the guarantee was on his latest contract? It seems like the show is really sticking to those guarantees these days and that's really the only way I can explain how little BD was involved in the Grace aftermath or has been involved in the Danloe/Kate saga. Well... the only way I can explain it besides bad writing...

Yeah well the majority of the boards I post do not share her view.I do not see her pimping BD's acting nor James Scott,cause she knows they can do their job and quite well.She is friends with him..that does not mean I have to like HIS acting and I with quite a few people do NOT! As for liking Lumi..so..good for her,,she grew up with BD and Lumi,that does not bother me in the least..what bothers me,is SN and Thaao and DH got the ax,and we are left with this pitiful actor..and Ali Sweeney's "approval"is not going to help him improve the talent as he lacks so if you enjoy subpar acting..have at it..once again..all I hear is Charlie Brown's teacher.....damn he sucks :x
I don't remember her pimping Bryan's acting, though she does talk about him a lot. She definitely pimps James' acting. She has done it recently even.

I don't care that she likes LUMI. I don't care which pairing she likes. I do wish she would pick one and be loud and proud about it, and stop throwing bones to all of them like the writers do. Since she hasn't/won't do that, I think it's a bit stupid of her to mention one pairing like that and not the others, because she will get slammed in the comments, and that just causes more tension between the fans, which IMO leads to more negativity towards the characters when watching the show. The more negative you feel when watching, the more likely you are to tune out.

So I don't really post here, just mainly read, but I have to say that I love reading Ali's blogs. She always seems very genuine in them. I personally loved the grace story, and thought that everyone involved did a great job. I was also glad that Ali mentioned Sami's scene with Stephanie, I could actually see them forming a bond kind of like Sami and Belle, Sami needs someone like that.

As far as GG- I was never a fan of his on Passions (although I wasn't really a huge fan of the show in general) I think he is growing as an actor and IMO he hit all of his scenes in the Grace storyline out of the park.

I think Ali, Bry, James, and Galen's acting all rocked. Ali rocked with emotion when Grace was sick and dying. Her emotional scenes were out of this world. I was tearing up the whole time. The scenes that stick out the most to me were with her father and where she lipped the words I'm sorry to Rafe and when she broke down and said her heart would break if she lost Grace. James rocked when he found out Sami was hiding the fact he had a child that died, his facial features were superb and the anger he showed in the funeral were spot on, it made me actually feel sorry for Ej, even after all his character had done. Galen rocked when he was being strong for Sami but broke down when he was talking to Grace about when she crooked her little finger and twisted him all up, OMG I started balling my eyes out! Then when he was at the funeral by himself and was pounding on the stand looking at Grace's picture, screaming in pain. I actually felt the anger in him. I mean come on guys if you say ANY of these actors aren't good actors then you are just kidding yourselves and letting your fanbase loyality blind you. Because they ALL did an outstanding job. That's why Ali has praised each one, not out of friendship but because ALL the actors are GREAT! You can't look at the examples I gave above and honestly say that wasn't good acting, I just wouldn't believe you! :shrug:

Good post and I agree with you. Everyone involved with the baby Grace storyline did outstanding work, which is why Ali took the time to praise each one. She did so in this blog and she has been tweeting about them all along.

"ROFL I liked this: "This was the first opportunity for me to really see just how talented Galen is."


LOL! Basically to see if he can really act. LOL. I bet if the writers decided to do Lumi again, Ali would be thrilled. I also think she likes Safe so she's fine with them as well obviously she adores Galen.
She is obviously enjoying working with Galen and by extension the Safe storyline but she's consistent with saying that deep down she's a Lumi :lol:

She obviously likes James too but I'm just happy that she does not praise Ejami or that storyline in these blogs as that would be :puke:

I am a Safe fan so I am happy that she loves working with GG. I think it's sweet that she takes all the opportunities she can to praise his work. It's nice. :smile:
She can praise him all she wants,he lacks talent,,she knows it,therefore she pushes his work....no matter what she says,he is a terrible actor..when he speaks,,I hear the teacher from Charlie Brown..wah wah,wahwah, wah,wah.But,then to each his own right? :eyeroll:
ROLF! thats all i hear too :lol:

Ari is a part of that storyline to but you left her out. If you think she is a bad actress maybe some think GG is a bad actor to.

Ali's blogs are always fun and refreshing to read. I'm very happy to know that she is still a LUMI because her scenes with Bryan and their lovestory are still the best Days have ever had. Ali cares alot about her character Sami that she has basically turned into the leading lady of Days. I think she has definite ideas on where her charater should be headed and I think she KNOWS Sami and Lucas do belong together. She has never seem to enjoy when they tried to pair Sami with her rapist. That would stand against pretty much anything that "MOST" women would believe in. Galen is doing a great job and his scenes with Grace were wonderful. Ali of course did great too as did Ari. Ali has a lot to proud of and Im very happy that she does a blog and lets us in to her world just a tiny bit.
