If you've ever seen an episode of Pose — and if you haven't, stop reading this and go fix your life, like, right now — then you know the show is at its most fun and exuberant in the ballroom scenes, where houses compete for trophies with their creativity and voguing skills. The ballroom is also where Pose shows what it's like when the subjective sport of reading takes on a scientific, quantitative accuracy, when judges rate performances and presentations with a number, sort of like a very shady Olympics. With 2019 whizzing by, TV Guide thought it would be criminal to let the year lapse without hearing what Pose's creative team had to say about some of the biggest moments of the year, ballroom style.
Check out Mj Rodriguez, who plays Blanca, alongside Pose creator Steven Canals and producer/writer Janet Mock, rating the standout pop culture moments of 2019, from the domination of pop queen Lizzo, Kim Kardashian becoming a lawyer, Billy Porter slaying the Met Gala, and that unforgettable episode of Red Table Talk with Jordyn Woods. Their answers are a hoot... unless you liked Season 2 of Big Little Lies.
Pose airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on FX.
