What’s On TV? – Wednesday (8/7/19) – Catch-Up with a ‘Favourite’ From Last Year


The pick of the day is an easy one to choose as it’s one of the best films from last year. The sharp, sardonic and wildly funny movie about vying for the attention of Queen Anne is a must-see, if you didn’t have the opportunity to see the Oscar nominated picture in theaters last year:

Pick of the Day:
“The Favourite” (HBO) at 8:00 PM ET

“The Favourite” was nominated for 10 Oscars and it looked like it was going home empty handed until Olivia Colman won Best Actress. Her performance of the fragile and troubled Queen Anne was regarded as one of the best of last year. The movie plays like an entertaining chess game as Colman is paired with Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, who also earned Oscar nominations for their outrageous, calculated performances. The movie is brilliant, under the direction of Oscar nominee Yorgos Lanthimos, and features one of last year’s best screenplays. Travel back to 18th century England and give it a watch tonight.

Movies on TV:
“The Wedding Singer” (Freeform) at 8:30 PM ET

During the ’90s, Adam Sandler was a staple in comedies. With his background as a “Saturday Night Live” alum, he took the decade by storm with memorable comedic fare including this entry to his filmography. “The Wedding Singer” remains one of Sandler’s funniest and most entertaining movies. It’s Sandler’s first pairing with Drew Barrymore and they have a palpable, pitch-perfect chemistry. “The Wedding Singer” is a worthy re-watch on television tonight if you’re in the mood for a nostalgic jolt.
