JohnLithgow  My lucky Churchill coin!  It worked!


I want to thank so many of the actors in ‘The Crown’, there’s so many great actors, I can’t possibly rattle them off in thank you speeches.So – Matt Smith, Vanessa Kirby, Alex Jennings, Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Harriet Walter – it goes on and on and on. A wonderful character man named Clive Francis, who played the Duke of Norfolk.In fact, he gave me a little Winston Churchill memorial coin to wear in my pocket tonight. So Clive - thank you!” - John Lithgow, 69TH Emmys Thank you Cam

@arealcharmingprincessI refuse to believe Peggy Carter wasn’t appointed a Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by her close friend Queen Elizabeth II because she damn well deserves it for her service to the country, for saving the world more than once, and scaring Hydra for seventy years until she retired.

So I’m watching The Crown on Netflix, real banger of a show, and Prince Phillip goes “you’ve taken my career and my home and my family name from me what kind of marriage is this” and I was like shit. he’s the woman in a traditional marriage. that’s a completely normal classic marriage, it’s just that the gender roles are reversed. I don’t know if that was intentional from the show writers but DAMN
