She was nominated for a Golden Globe, she won! She was also nominated for an Oscar, she didn't win but wow to be nominated.. Carrie is 10 times the singer of Madonna (I love her) ... The Sound of Music is going to be amazing.. Just like Evita was Madonnas role... I think Maria is Carrie's and she is going to SHINE!!!!
    I don't think Carrie being selected for this role was all that controversial.

    On a related note on Madonna, she wrote to the director asking to serve them meals on the set (she is apparently known to be an awful cook). The director wrote back saying no. She responded asking then if she could be the lead actress.

    I hope we get to hear more of it on the next cd.

    So Mr. Bezos should take away the Freedom of the press rights of his writers because you and others on here don't like what they have to say.

    Hmm, ok.

    Guys, that piece was not spewing hate. The gist of it was that the writer was so in love with the Julie Andrews version that nothing could compare in her mind. The headline was inappropriate and her assumption that Carrie wouldn't be good in it was inappropriate but it hardly constituted 'hate'. Let's not make it more than it was. If you want to write a reasoned email to the writer go right ahead but let's keep some perspective.

    It's okay to write an opinion that is not in line with my thinking, if it's based on factual evidence. To initiate negativity based on assumptions for the sake of shock value is not constructive to society.

    Some brazilian sites are talking about Carrie and TSOM.

    Carrie Underwood vira 'Noviça Rebelde' na TV americana - cultura - variedades - Estadão
    Notícias do Brasil e do Mundo - Yahoo Notícias
    Carrie Underwood: ouça a trilha sonora do remake de "A Noviça Rebelde" | PortalPOPline.com.br

    Basically the same interview is being posted on several sites. It's not like Brazil will go crazy over this, but it's at least nice to see Carrie get some coverage here

    By the way, Bern, your videos are everywhere.

    My dilemma is this: I can not for the LIFE of me decide which is my favorite song on this soundtrack. My hubby is getting tired of listening to me sing these songs to my parrots. He said if they start singing back the parts to DO RE MI he's packing his bags.

    I agree. I've always wished Carrie would show us more of the soft, vulnerable side of her voice... I'm just so glad SOM brought it out of her! And hopefully she will realize just what an asset that is and use it more often in the future!

    It was a personal story in the Style section. The writer went on to say she won't be watching (heck she took her honeymoon in Austria) and will be watching the Tape the night it is on live. She then suggested Carrie would mess the SOM up. Further the only one who she would even consider watching besides Julie would be Beyonce in the role.

    She is welcome to her "freedom of speech, " but so am I in responding.

    It's the writers opinion so how in the world can there being any "factual evidence."?

    In the writers opinion nobody can do the role of Maria like Julie Andrews did, there can't be any "factual evidence" involved in that because it's an opinion and nothing more than that and to say someone should get fired over that is just absurd.

    On Friday you could have Brian Mansfield say that Carrie is the greatest Maria ever and you can have the writer from The Washington Post say that she was terrible and neither is proven by "factual evidence" it's an opinion from both and that is it.

    I never said that anyone isn't allowed to disagree with what this writer had to say, what I am saying is that it's over the top ridiculous to say that the writer should lose their job because she doesn't think that Carrie can't or Beyoncé can do the role of Maria.
