Quote DeepnThought: My criticism of "Harmony",has NOTHING to do with DM's acting ability.(*rolls eyes*) Her performances are just OVER-the-TOP and TOO MUCH.
(And the characterization as written by the writers,namely,MAB,is just INSULTING!)
Again,it has NOTHING to do with DM's acting,per se.
She's a very good actress,who's work I,normally,enjoy.
Whether she's playing Angie Hubbard,earth mother. Or
Lynette,(on Soul Food)a wayward,irresponsible mother,who
acted like she NEVER went to school. And never grew up.
Even Lynette didn't offend me as much as Harmony DOES!
And that's saying A LOT!
That said,just because an actor is good or even GREAT,
generally speaking,doesn't mean that he or she can't help
to create a STINKER of a character,or just do a poor job
of portraying a character,period. Heck,even SIR Anthony
Hopkins,was criticized by film critics,for being miscast
as a black man,passing for white,in the movie THE HUMAN
It was felt that he lack believability in the
role. And this is SIR Anthony Hopkins we're talking about!
So,if HE can be criticized for not being right for a
part,why can't DM? Daytime Emmy Winner or not? Just
p.s. For the record,I hope and believe that DM will(and
should win)the Emmy,this year,for her role as Angie
Hubbard,on All My Children. But,as for playing Harmony?
NO WAY! JMO.
