From the second it was announced, we knew that the Derry Girls taking part in a Great British Bake Off special was going to be a recipe for disaster – and it turned out we were not wrong. 
The Derry Girls Disastrous Turn In The Bake Off Tent Has Viewers Calling For Second Helpings
The stars of the hit Channel 4 sitcom had a spectacularly calamitous time in the tent on New Year’s Day, as judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith put them through their culinary paces. Cast members Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn and Siobhan McSweeney were first tasked with making an alcohol-laced sharing trifle for their signature challenge, but a few of them ended up downing the booze as they made their creations. 
Paul told Siobhan – who plays headmistress Sister Michael – her trifle was “all over the place and “looked like an aquarium”, while Prue conceded it did “look like slime”.Nothing ventured, nothing gained! 🤝😂 #GBBO#DerryGirls@siobhnipic.twitter.com/hXyVPqVUY0— British Bake Off (@BritishBakeOff) January 1, 2020Jamie-Lee – aka Michelle – suffered embarrassment after mixing up the table spoon and teaspoon while measuring out the baking powder during the showstopper round.
She was told her cake, which was shaped like the plane Amelia Earhart landed in Derry in the 1930s, was “as tough as old boots”.1930s Amelia Earhart Cake by @JamieLeeOD. Just plane awesome, although Paul’s burnt tongue may disagree! #GBBO#DerryGirlspic.twitter.com/J8PTPyO17F— British Bake Off (@BritishBakeOff) January 1, 2020Having earlier had a nightmare with a Swiss roll, Nicola’s showstopper didn’t fare much better.
The Clare Devlin actor’s bowler hat cake inspired by the film Cabaret was branded “quite musty”. 
Her attempts to grill a sponge also proved to be a point of amusement for viewers. 1930’s Cabaret Cake by @NicolaCoughlan.

Siobhan made a chocolate raspberry cake in memory of her family camping trips to Cork in the 1980s, which by her own admission was “so weird”.Camping in Cork Cake by @siobhni. Definitely a 1980's aesthetic going on there! #GBBO#DerryGirlspic.twitter.com/FLybC6kY9B— British Bake Off (@BritishBakeOff) January 1, 2020And this being the Derry Girls, there was also plenty of innuendo to be had...The wee English fella knows a spot of Bake Off Innuendo when he hears it! #GBBO#DerryGirls@Djllewellynpic.twitter.com/MVC6QEOWYO— British Bake Off (@BritishBakeOff) January 1, 2020In the end, it was Saoirse-Monica Jackson who was crowned Star Baker, despite never having made a cake before. 
She had impressed Paul and Prue with her Irish cream trifle, decorated with green sugar shamrocks, and her 1960s-inspired showstopper cake, while her salmon and beetroot blinis went down well during the technical. 
After the final challenge Nicola said she was “a broken woman”, which to be fair, seemed pretty evident...Do you think I was having a meltdown or nah #GBBOpic.twitter.com/WbtI6KtYmL— Nicola Coughlan (@nicolacoughlan) January 1, 2020Siobhan joked: “I’ve basically ruined the memory of my mother and father, I might not go back in.”
But despite the gang’s unmitigated disaster in the tent, viewers were still calling for second helpings of their antics...One episode of this Derry Girls/Bake Off crossover is nowhere near enough. We need a series please. Where no one goes home. For, like, 10 weeks. #GBBO— Noor (@NooryNoor) January 1, 2020Sister Michael has broken out the champagne. Clare has grilled a sponge. Michelle’s Swiss roll has custard pissing out the sides. James has no clue what he’s doing. The Derry Girls Bake Off is everything I wanted and more. #GBBO— Lynsey James (@Lynsey1991) January 1, 2020After watching #GBBO can we please have a #derrygirls special of the following;- The Chase- Gogglebox- Coach trip- Dancing on Ice- Question Time- Crystal maze- The Apprentice- Rupaul’s Drag Race— Sarah Nicholass (@Sarah_Niks) January 1, 2020The Derry Girls episode of Bake Off is already a contender for best show of 2020, whoever thought of this is a genius #GBBO— chloe (@chloeap_) January 1, 2020After this #GBBO think we need further Derry Girls crossovers.

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
