Transformers: Rise of the Beasts Scourge and Optimus Prime Promote Paramount+

Not much on the movie front but Paramount+ commissioned some new visual effects work using Scourge, who keeps misfiring, and Optimus Prime to promote Paramount+. Not sure but I suspect Peter Cullen voices both characters rather than Peter Dinklage doing Scourge.

Merry Christmas from Garry Chalk and David Kaye

The annual tradition continues as Transformers: Beast Wars voice leads Garry Chalk (Optimus Primal) and David Kaye (Megatron) posted videos for Christmas. Chalk sings a parody of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" with "Quack! The Rubber Ducky Says" with lyrics by Candice N. Santora. Kaye riffed for a few minutes as a response to Chalk's video. Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year!

Video of Peter Cullen Receiving Lifetime Achievement Emmy

Sunday evening, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences held their 2nd Annual Children's & Family Emmy Awards. This was a spin-off of the daytime Emmy Awards. Below is a video of Peter Cullen receiving his Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in television and film with Frank Welker providing the introduction, who received his Lifetime Achievement Emmy in 2016. The video that played to highlight Cullen's career relied heavily on footage from a Collider interview with the actor which is the second video below. I thought the achievement video focused entirely on his work with Transformers and not enough on the many, many voice roles he has provided over the decades. A taste of that work can be found in the third video below.
