To not understand what Claudia Winkleman is doing with her whole eye/fringe thing

I mean, I think she looks manic and weird and sometimes it works and sometimes she looks like central casting for Mrs Rochester.

How did she get Film 2010? I mean fine she's ok but really, she can hardly have been the best person for the job! Pretty and bright and dementedly enthusiastic like a Posh Puppy, but really, I'd rather have someone with more knowledge myself.

Personally I dont like her style of interviewing, and hate the kind of fake scatty type of personality she tries to pull off.
I don't like her on striclty either and the way too long fringe looks daft.

yy agree with tennisfan, fake scatty indeed. She's very irritating.

Cappster Wed 10-Nov-10 13:33:48

Good grief what they say about the Sisterhood being crap is true

She's a clever, witty, articulate woman; she doesn't dress like a bimbo, she's presenting a show that's been presented by a bloke for years and years. And you come on here and have a go at her hair?

Jonathan Ross had no bloody knowledge and his hair was insane

I despair for feminism, I really do

I think she's fabulous.

BeaSpellsaLot Wed 10-Nov-10 13:43:56

I love her too.

OnlyWantsOne Wed 10-Nov-10 13:45:37

I agree with Cappster - we are judging her professional ability, primarily because of her hair... good one

UnquietDad Wed 10-Nov-10 13:46:00

Never mind that, she said "fuck" on air!

FindingMyMojo Wed 10-Nov-10 13:48:50

it's her "style" & I think it's quite unique so I applaud her for it.

LoveRedShoes Wed 10-Nov-10 13:50:30

Like her. Not so keen on the fake scatty thing, but think she is very good. Don't think she said f$$$, wasn't it a geordie accented lady in the back room?

OnlyWantsOne Wed 10-Nov-10 13:50:32

o, btw she has a MA in The History of Art from Cambridge

you want some one with more knowledge?

I really like Winkleman. I like her hair and her style and I like that she's quirky attractive instead of unattainable attractive. I could imagine being mates with her.

Floopy21 Wed 10-Nov-10 13:58:29

It's the funny nude lipstick I find odd.

saythatagain Wed 10-Nov-10 14:00:28

L like her and I find her funny too!

saythatagain Wed 10-Nov-10 14:01:34

I also like that fact that she doesn't conform to the current 'norm'. I like quirky.

I think Jonathan Ross was QUITE keen on films and knew a bit about them.

thelunar66 Wed 10-Nov-10 14:14:02

I like her. And she does Film 2010 live, which is brave in my book.

Rollergirl1 Wed 10-Nov-10 14:25:48

I just want to blow her fringe out of her eyes whenever I see her. And it is impacting on her professional ability if she can't see the bleeding film because of her "quirky bangs".

I don't actually mind her. But thank heavans for Danny Leigh is all I can say.

well said cappster

"o, btw she has a MA in The History of Art from Cambridge"

Anyone who goes to Oxford or Cambridge can upgrade their BA to an MA by the simple expedient of waiting a couple of years after graduation and then bunging the university a tenner.

This has no bearing on Winkleman's merits as a presenter, but I do agree she could do with a haircut.

potplant Wed 10-Nov-10 14:31:04

I like her but the hair in the eyes is really annoying

Only seen a couple of Film 2010 with her. She's much better than I thought she was going to be. (still prefer JR)

The3Bears Wed 10-Nov-10 14:41:21

I think shes very pretty

bigchris Wed 10-Nov-10 14:43:17

WTF does history of art have to do with films?!!

coolascucumber Wed 10-Nov-10 14:56:08

I love her hair and I don't mind her presentation style either. Much less idiosyncratic and instrusive than Jonathan Ross and the show is all the better for it.
