Hear ye, hear ye, this serves as your reminder that the Dueling Divas Blogathon is happening this Saturday! Get ready for a fun day of rivalry and revelry, when Backlots’ readers get together to contribute posts about their favorite dueling divas. In case you’re new around these parts, here are the guidelines for this blogathon, now in its 4th year:
Your topic may be related to any of the following:
- Classic film personalities who had a rivalry in real life, either over a particular film role or over a personality clash, ie Bette Davis and Joan Crawford
- Classic film characters who had a rivalry on the screen, ie Mildred and Veda from Mildred Pierce
- Any dual role played by an actor or actress in a classic film, ie Hayley Mills in The Parent Trap.
You don’t need to feel limited to a single duel between two personalities or characters. You can talk about various clashes a single actor had (ahem…Bette Davis) or duels within a group. In the past, I have written about the duels in The Women, which was a lot of fun.
Also, Backlots is a progressive and gender-eschewing blog, so your divas may be women or men, as you wish.
If you haven’t signed up yet, there’s still time! Email me or comment on this post, and I will know to expect your entry on Saturday.
I am very much looking forward to our 4th year of Dueling Divas, and know that this year is going to be a great one!
See you on Saturday!
