Jenna Ortega's Saturday Night Live episode is now available unlocked (but still geoblocked) on the NBC website. The sketches are so good.
#JennaOrtega #SaturdayNightLive #SNL
All the sketches are online on their YouTube channel, the full episode has only the outro as extra bit and two or three times that she announces the music guest. These are just one line but surprisingly she has a different outfit for each. I don't know whether that's common on SNL, or whether it's a Jenna thing.

You can see that I've never watched an SNL episode. I don't know how the format works. I don't know which of the sketches are live and which are recorded. To do even some of them live seems a herculean task.

Some clips of Jenna Ortega's hosting of Saturday Night Live are now available on the NBC site. (Geoblocked)

Hard to choose a favourite, they're all funny and different. I like how Jenna goes all out with the acting. I love 'Zena Neutreno'.

US people: Jenna Ortega is hosting Saturday Night Live tonight!

In trying to find out whether I could see it in Europe (answer: no), I found that Jenna's appearance on Fallon (The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon) is repeated today and tomorrow on CNBC Europe (one of her two visits). So set your recorders! (Yes, I'm old. Yes, I have a recorder and have set it.)

I also found that old seasons of SNL eventually end up on HBO Max, so I've already set my alert on Jenna's episode.

Just back from Scream VI:


This is by far, by far, the best film of the franchise. Jenna Ortega is amazing. The whole cast play their characters amazingly. The script includes proper characters unlike some horror films. Even if you're not into horror or slashers, this is still a big recommendation from me.

I'm looking forward to seeing it, but unfortunately it's not released Chinese mainland, but I'll keep following it on the internet
@Monoavi I'm sorry you can't see it yet, hopefully you'll get to see it soon. I was surprised we in the Netherlands got it before the US, usually we are months later.

Doing the final one Wednesday per Wednesday, episode 8 of my fourth run-through. Getting ready for the pre-premiere of Scream VI later this evening. It's a Jenna Ortega day...

Scream VI is released in Dutch cinemas tomorrow, Thursday 9 March. In the US it is released Friday.

So interesting how she has this 'does not compute' reaction when she turns out to be wrong about something. And she is wrong about things surprisingly often for someone coming across as so confident.
#WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday
She also passes out / is knocked out disturbingly often.

I've been watching the Scream films to get ready for the release of Scream VI this week. Now I'm rewatching the fifth film, Scream, the one with Jenna Ortega, from my 4k disc. Last year I saw this film in the cinema and it was my first experience seeing Jenna on the big screen, which is even more impressive.

Of course I'm going to see Scream VI in the cinema too! The US release is this Friday, the Dutch release is one day earlier but our prerelease is this Wednesday already.

Jenna Ortega proves that a horror slasher can also have spot on acting, not just in the attack scenes but also in some heartfelt dialogue.

The You Netflix account posting these two Ellie and Nadia videos side by side... I love both actresses, and characters, and had already noticed their similarities in the makeup of the show (the wise young person that fascinates Joe, who he wants to protect, but who is fundamentally a reflection of the real world rather than Joe's strange business). Further parallels: both Jenna and Amy-Leigh became famous from a tv series with a lot of kids living in a house where there were two adults, but the stories were about the kids (Stuck in the Middle and Tracy Beaker Returns/The Dumping Ground).
#You #YouNetflix #JennaOrtega #AmyLeighHickman
You see that Joe is getting older because in season four he needs to take notes to remember it all.

Jenna Ortega never loses her cool while eating increasingly hot spicy wings and while being interviewed. She talks about Wednesday, Tim Burton, Scream, horror in general, writing essays, teen stereotypes in scripts, etc.

New Scream VI trailer! With cast quotes.

The film comes out 9 March in my country (10 March in the US), but in many cities here there's a prerelease showing on Wednesday 8 March. Check your listings!

Scream VI is the follow up to last year's Scream, which was actually number 5, and Jenna Ortega plays one of the main characters, Tara Carpenter.
#JennaOrtega #ScreamVI #ScreamMovie

My main question I'm looking for this film to answer when I see it next week, but which I won't be able to talk about, is whether I will need to look out for the seventh installment next year, i.e. does Tara survive?

Jenna Ortega is going to be in a new film! Its title is not announced yet, nor what it is about or even what kind of film it is. Yeah, all the news here...

New interview with Jenna Ortega for the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, with her fellow nominees for the SAG Award in her category. Focusing on Wednesday from an actress perspective. I really like seeing how much work and thought she put into it. The awards are handed out tomorrow I think.
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday #SAGAwards

Upcoming Jenna Ortega appearances: she will present (and hopefully receive) an award at this Sunday's SAG awards and on 11 March she will host SNL.

American Carnage is a film that Jenna Ortega recorded in Spain several years ago. Nothing much was heard about it for a long time, but when Jenna became more famous with The Fallout and Scream, the film was suddenly released with her prominently in all marketing. I'm not sure yet how big her role really is.

It is not available on European blu-ray or on any of my local digital services. So this is the us blu-ray.

Content warning: American Carnage (2022) spoilerish

As expected, only the JP character is a main character, others including Jenna's Camila are supporting characters. It's a fun or should I say interesting watch. Interesting concept, but if it wasn't for Jenna my interest would be somewhat less.

I don't quite know what it means yet, but Adidas says they haven't done a new label in 50 years, but they are going to and Jenna Ortega is going to be the brand ambassador of it. That's all I know. More to be revealed. This was from an official Adidas press release.

Most people will associate her with acting, red carpets, fashion and high heels, but people who have been following Jenna Ortega longer will know that sports and soccer in particular are very much part her. At some point as a kid she had to choose between the acting or continuing playing soccer and it could easily have gone the other way.

Doing one Wednesday per Wednesday for my fourth run-through of the series. Meanwhile also at episode four of The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. There's something quite Wednesday about this Lizzie.

The Scream VI trailer is out! It looks great. Nice detail is that unlike the previous one where they suggested Tara (Jenna Ortega's character) was the opening kill, here we see her in multiple outfits, so she is in the film for a while. Not so nice is that there is a clip of Tara in trouble that she maybe doesn't survive...

In cinemas in March!
#JennaOrtega #ScreamVI #Scream

Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega are so believable as sisters.

It is all great how Jenna Ortega's talent is now so much recognised, resulting in The Fallout suddenly getting nominated in the 2023 awards season even though it premiered at sxsw 2021, and her Instagram followers jumping from 8 million to 38 million, but can we let her lead her own normal life in between jobs? You can see all the (presumably professional) autograph hunters on all the paparrazi photos.

Yesterday Jenna Ortega was at the YSL fashion show in Paris. Here is an article about her outfit for those that can read French, others just look at the pictures.

The film Scream VI (with Jenna Ortega) is listed for 9 March in Dutch cinemas (one day ahead of the US release), but these things tend to change once the date comes nearer.

Jenna Ortega is nominated for best actress in a comedy series at the SAG Awards for her role in Wednesday! She deserves all the awards...
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday

Tonight will be the Golden Globe award ceremony where Jenna Ortega is nominated for best actress (subcategory comedy or musical series) for her role in Wednesday. I hope she wins! For me she has already won, and as best actress overall, or best person overall. She is also presenting an award, a different one I assume.
#JennaOrtega #GoldenGlobes

A long interview with Jenna Ortega at a screening of Wednesday, during what I think is a fashion show. She talks of course about Wednesday, but also other aspects of her career.

And I also don't know why the video is mostly on its side and why the beginning is edited to be at the end. As far as I can tell, this is the official recording.

This was rumoured for a while, but now it's officially announced: Jenna Ortega plays the lead in a film called Winter Spring Summer or Fall. What is new to me is that she's also Executive Producing the film. So great to see her play more character roles and also that she gets more control over the process.
#JennaOrtega #WinterSpringSummerOrFall

While with the success of Wednesday on Netflix a go-ahead for season two seems only natural, here are my completely uninformed thoughts about it: it has become clear that there can't be a Wednesday season two or any offshoot of the Addams Family universe in film, without Jenna Ortega. She's been so much the center of the success. And if I were Jenna, which I'm not, I'd want in this case to see scripts before committing. So chicken and egg... Maybe a series of independent Wednesday films are most likely.
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday

Scream VI, I guess that will be the name, will come out 10 March 2023. Here is the teaser trailer released today. Some glimpses of Jenna. I'm hoping for a significant opportunity for her to flesh out her character, Tara.

It has not even been three weeks. I like their Instagram caption:

Thing issued this statement: 👊👍🤘

#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday
Closeup of Jenna Ortega as Wednesday giving side-eye with the text, apart from the titles 'Wednesday' and 'Netflix', "Over 1 billion hours watched", with a really big "1"

Jenna Ortega and her series Wednesday have both been nominated for the Golden Globes!
#JennaOrtega #Wednesday #WednesdayNetflix

Nice to see how everyone is having so much fun and is so relaxed on the Wednesday set. Seems to be a good place with good people. Not so nice to see Emma getting that flashlight straight in her face, I guess that did hurt...
#WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday #JennaOrtega #bloopers
Hmm, quote-share of my post didn't work so well. I can't upload the video here either...

The Netflix show Wednesday made sure everybody now knows the talent of Jenna Ortega. Her followers on Instagram went from 8 million to over 26 million. So I'm wondering whether the director of Songbird already regrets cutting out her scenes.
#JennaOrtega #Songbird

I've found that Jenna Ortega's film The Fallout is called "The Life After" in some regions. This has not yet resulted in me finding an available blu-ray or dvd, however. In the US a dvd (not blu-ray) is available under its normal name and the film is on HBO Max wherever HBO Max is.
#JennaOrtega #TheFallout #TheLifeAfter

Such is the success of Wednesday that after years of me being the only lonely one talking about Jenna Ortega on the fediverse addressing the void, there are now multiple people 'here' posting about her show. (I tried to reshare but it doesn't work at the moment)
#JennaOrtega #WednesdayNetflix #Wednesday
(And search actually works on Friendica, just saying... Discoverability, as ever on the fediverse, not so much)
Can next time when I say an actress is really good, people just believe me?

Updated the blog post. Now Wednesday is out, these are the new projects with Jenna Ortega that I know of: Scream (6), Finestkind and Miller's Girl.

I'm three episodes in and it's so so good! Jenna is amazing, striking exactly the right tone to let a character like Wednesday Addams lead the story and draw you in.
#Wednesday #JennaOrtega
It was totally amazing. I want a season two. It's showing such great judgement by Jenna Ortega of presenting exactly the right kind and amount of internal torment to hook you on the character and the story, while also being true to the version we know who had her emotionless one-liners as a support character but which wouldn't work for leading eight episodes. This works. But we know, and many people say it, Jenna always delivers.

Long, interesting interview in The Face magazine with Jenna Ortega by Olivia Rodrigo. A very different photo shoot, with many interesting photos.
