Jimmy Kimmel says it’s too soon to tell how he’ll address harassment issue at the Oscars

first_imgABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — On Sunday night, Seth Meyers strongly addressed Hollywood’s sexual harassment issue during his Golden Globes monologue, but can we expect more of the same at the Oscars in March? Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Press Association tour in Pasadena, California, on Monday, Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel said it’s too soon to tell.“The problem is, it’s two months from now, it’s almost like getting into a hot tub or something,” Kimmel explained. “You can’t really know what the temperature is until you get there.”But Kimmel did admit it was very important for him to observe how Meyers handled the topic.“I was like, ‘I have to see what Seth says and how it is received,’” Kimmel said. “And I do thank him for being that litmus test.”Reporters also asked Kimmel if he’s hoping for another Moonlight/La La Land-style mix-up this year.“Well, if it happens again, literally everyone that works at ABC should be fired, right?” he replied, as the reporters laughed. “Because it happens one time, that’s I think understandable.  But if it happens a second time, no one is competent enough to be running a television show or network.”For the record, it was a Price Waterhouse accountant who was behind the mix-up last year, not an ABC employee.Kimmel weighed in on the #OprahforPresident calls that followed Oprah’s roof-raising speech at the Globes.“Given the choice between Oprah and our current president, y’know, I’m on the bus with Oprah, traveling the country, encouraging people to sign up and vote,” he said.Then, Jimmy joked, “We would have to call her President Winfrey…you realize that. We would really have to start using the word ‘Winfrey’ a lot…I don’t know if we’re prepared for that as a country.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Dane: Proteas women are babies compared to Aussies

first_imgDane van Niekerk says South Africa’s ‘babies’ are ready to come of age in their ICC Women’s T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia.The Proteas reached the final four for the second time thanks to an unbeaten Group B campaign, while Thursday’s opponents have won the competition on four occasions.South Africa have eight survivors from their nine-wicket humbling at the hands of England in 2014 and Van Niekerk points to a remarkable turnaround.“Australia have been in so many semi-finals and finals. We are babies compared to them when it comes to experience,” said the captain.“I think about 2014 and we were shell-shocked that we got into the semi-finals.“You go there wanting to do well in a tournament, but it’s different to say you’re going to come and win a World Cup.“I don’t think we quite understood then what it meant mentally, physically. We’ve been on tour 54 days already, it’s not as if we’ve just come over here and are on a 20-day tour.“We’ve played the most international cricket out of everyone, it just shows the preparation and learning how to go about it. That’s helped us a lot in this World Cup.“We don’t want the heartache of 2017 again. It was very tough for a lot of the players and management, we’re definitely going to do everything we can tomorrow to make sure we don’t have that feeling again.”Van Niekerk was at the helm for South Africa’s other major disappointment, a two-wicket defeat to England at the 2017 Cricket World Cup.The Proteas’ group-stage victory over England this year was a statement about their evolution as a side and they backed it up with wins over Thailand and Pakistan.Key contributions have come from a variety of sources, with Lizelle Lee clubbing a century against Thailand and Laura Woolvardt a vital 50 against Pakistan.The raw pace of Shabnim Ismail has given their bowling attack x-factor, while the tactic of opening with Nonkululeko Mlaba’s spin has largely paid off.Also constant in their group stage campaign has been concerns over the fitness of Marizanne Kapp, laid low with a virus in recent days.Kapp will be assessed on the morning of the game with her participation still in doubt, and Van Niekerk reiterated the all-rounder’s importance to her side.“Everybody around the room knows how important Marizanne is for our side,” she said.“She’s not only one of the pace bowlers in the world, she’s one of the best all-rounders.“It is a semi-final, but a player’s health is more important than the game.“We’re lucky enough to have 15 very talented cricketers, so whatever decision is made I’m confident players will stick up their hand and make sure she’s not missed too much.“Sune (Luus) has put up her hand in Marizanne’s role with the batting. I’m not too worried but hopefully she gets up in good spirits so we can include her in the team.”For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

Ladies rule at 9th John Preddy & Memorial Golf Tournament

first_imgTechnical prizes (in two flights) were available on every hole, provided by our generous sponsors, and this kept everyone’s interest, even when falling out of contention for the main competition prizes.  The novelty technical prize for nearest to the tree (in the middle of the fairway) on the par 5, 14th hole produced a great shot from Marlene Prudden which finished just a couple of inches from the tree and left an almost unplayable second shot!It proved to be a long day with the competition organisers, playing in the final group, only just managing to complete their round as darkness set in at 6pm.The free buffet and prize giving was held at Lewinski’s bar, and the staff there put on an excellent spread to satiate the hungry golfers.Geoff Parker (right) presents the men’s individual trophy to Sugar Ray Handford.This was the first year that lady golfers had participated in the event and they certainly made their presence felt by winning the inaugural Memorial trophy for the team event, and Duang Butpanya also took the Ladies/Seniors trophy.  The John Preddy men’s individual trophy was won by Sugar Ray Handford with 41 points, two points clear of a cluster of five players on 39 who had to be separated on count backs.Special mention is due for one player who attempted to break the course record for the number of beers consumed during a round, managing to drink 10 prior to teeing off and 14 during the round (yes – the caddies were counting!), and he still came home with 36 points!The tournament was a charity event organized in conjunction with the PSC to raise money for local children’s charities, and the spirit of the day was embodied by Shane Ruddle who won the special par three jackpot prize, and generously donated half of his winnings back to charity.Grateful thanks are due to Emerald Golf Club, together with all our corporate and individual sponsors, as well as all the players who contributed to a successful tournament.John Preddy

the Navy course on another bright, sunny morning.We teed off on schedule on the East nine and it soon became clear that it was going to be a question of the survival of the fittest, as the temperature was stifling over the outward nine holes.  The course was in good condition and the greens were running at a reasonable speed and we progressed at a steady pace throughout the round.Duang Butpanya (left) receives the Ladies/Seniors trophy.Thomas Nyborg was playing his first game with the new driver that he’d won in the raffle at the Memorial Tournament on Monday, and it seemed to cure the slice that he normally struggles with, as he came home with the best score of the day on 38 points.Mike Lloyd recorded the first victory of his current visit, winning the A flight with 34 points, two points clear of Tony Berry and Alan Harris who had to be separated on a count back.Ken Davidson narrowly missed out on a podium position in the B flight, but he recorded back to back birdies on the inward nine – surely a rare feat for a player playing off a 22 handicap!A Flight1st Mike Lloyd (14) 34pts2nd Tony Berry (12) 32pts3rd Alan Harris (9) 32ptsB Flight1st Thomas Nyborg (19) 38pts2nd Mike Corner

the month’ title with three contenders, Alan Harris, Geoff Parker, and Gordon Melia all still in with a chance of taking the coveted trophy.  Contrary to tradition the three title contenders went off in the first group rather than the last, in nearly ideal weather conditions, and with a clear course ahead of them.The course was in good condition and the greens were running fast and true, so everything was in place for a fine contest.  Unfortunately it soon turned into a one horse race as Geoff Parker blew his handicap on the outward nine and Gordon Melia was also dropping careless shots, whilst Alan Harris was playing some great golf and completed the front nine three shots under his handicap and only two over par.  Gordon continued dropping unnecessary shots on the inward nine whilst Alan was as steady as rock, and eventually came home with the best score of the day on net 69 – a worthy champion.Gerry Cooney took second place in the A flight ahead of Tony Scambler who edged out Colin Greig on a count back.  Ross Schiffke won the B flight, also on a count back, ahead of Geoff Williams, with Tom Jones making a welcome return to the podium in third place.The day was spoilt when after completing the outward nine at a good pace, the leading group arrived on the 10th tee to find that an invasion of Korean golfers had taken over the back nine, with three groups waiting on the tee and other groups spread all over the remaining holes.  With all their golfers in buggies they were charging around like madmen looking for any vacant tee box, in no particular order, and it’s a sad reflection on the management of the course that they allow such anti-social behavior.A Flight1st Alan Harris (9) net 692nd Gerry Cooney (14) net 713rd Tony Scambler (9) net 72B Flight1st Ross

PSC Golf Bunker Boys @ The RanchMonday, Nov. 24, The Emerald – StablefordThe John Preddy memorial golf tournament has been held for the last 8 years, but this year the event was expanded to remember those local golfing friends who have passed away recently.  The format was an individual Stableford competition for the John Preddy trophy with a simultaneous team competition for the newly purchased Memorial trophy, which is inscribed with the names of recently departed local golfers.  The team event was an inter-society tournament including teams from six local golf societies and a total of 144 players assembled at the Emerald golf course on a bright, sunny, but humid morning. The first groups teed off on schedule at 8am, and although we had the complete course to ourselves a holdup began to develop on the par-three 5th hole after the first half dozen groups had passed through, and this slowed down the pace of play for all the following groups for the remainder of the round.Jim Preddy presents the Memorial Trophy to the winning team – Duang’s Girls.last_img read more
