Spent a very interesting and entertaining evening at another Edinburgh premiere last evening. In Filmhouse 2, no salubrious surroundings, just steamy South American road movie Mancora, with some very frank comments and insight from producer and leading actor, worth travelling from Glasgow to attend!! That's what its all about.....

Basically she's complaining about a spoonfed event. What did this supposedly seasoned journalist expect? Why didn't she interview Sharman McDonald off her own bat before the Festival instead of waiting for an overcrowded massmedia event if she was that interested in her views on the Traverse? And while she mocks the hacks at the press conference, her own report of Rep Scot was pretty dismal on the questions and content front.And you can't help noticing that it's only the starry stuff that attracts the attention of Ms MacLean, who doesn't seem to have bothered to truffle out some of the festival's unsung heroes this year for the BBC- just the ones that appear in Grazia every week...So, why not do some spadework Pauline? As a a starter - that's NOT how you spell Bobby Carlyle's name - as any infant arts reporter would tell you!

And talk about burning bridges....I expect the film festival peeps won't be greeting her back with open arms...can't blame them either. The Edge of Love was dull by the way but thankfully it looks like the organisers have found some other good films to discover this year. Wonder if Pauline will be allowed in to see any of them!?!S.

The paparazzi looked completely disinterested both in the film, the "celebs" and of course little old me!I thought the film was one of the better opening night films but was a bit too signposted for the BAFTAs it would like to win.Hope Edinburgh is treating you well x Fri 20 Jun 2008 12:57:18 GMT+1 mtfhayes http://wwwsearch.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/paulinemclean/2008/06/red_carpet_time.html?page=0#comment0 Dear PaulineI remember when you covered the Oscars and how jealous I felt as its something I willnever get the chance to do but now you have made that pain easier to bare. I will always look at the red carpet in a whole new light. Over here in the US E! News devotes hours to the Red carpet before big award shows mainly because they havent got the rights to cover the shows themselves. If you want to see a really painful display you need to watch Ryan Seacrest try to interview Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the Emmys or Golden Globes last year .....painful! Keep up the blog.
