Jem is nominated for an Academy Award because
of her role in their movie, Starbright (hm..no comment) and when she appears
on a talk show with the other nominees she inspires dislike from one of her
main competitors because she is not a classically trained actress. When
the star of a movie produced by Howard Sands walks out, Jem takes over the
role and it transpires her costar is Kimber's old favourite Shawn Harrison
(though no Pizzazz to compete with this time!). He and she renew their acqaintance
with enthusiasm. Meanwhile Jeff Wright, another of Kimber's old flames is
doing stunts on the film and Kimber finds herself torn between two beaus (lucky
This is the first time you see Shawn without the uneasy memory of his past
with Pizzazz...and he's a nicer character for it. Before this episode he came
across to me as something of a jerk in his behaviour to both Pizzazz *and*
Kimber (he's falsely flattering and smarmy where Kimber is concerned - blatantly
patronising her and insulting her intelligence, and both unfairly dismissive
and physically confrontational with Pizzazz)...but this is a different side
to him and you cant help rooting for him.

Part Two: And The Winner Is...
After being disappointed by Shawn's intentions towards their
future, Kimber accepts Jeff's proposal of marriage, little knowing that Shawn
too wants to propose. Shawn decides to prove himself to Kimber by taking over
Jeff's stunt in the car but winds up getting hurt. Meanwhile preparations
for the wedding begin in earnest.
However, at the altar Rio brings a proposal of marriage to Kimber from the
hospitalised Shawn, and she realises that she's not ready for marriage. She
soon discovers Jeff too has cold feet, and they part on remarkably good terms.
Kimber goes (in her wedding dress!) to visit Shawn but tells him she isn't
ready to marry yet...that's a move for them to take in the future for the
right reasons <aww, she's growing up...>. She also lands Jerrica in
it by saying carelessly 'you're holding up my sister's movie career!' but
Shawn is evidently still concussed since he doesn't seem to notice...
The award ceremony comes, and...<drumroll> JEM DOESN'T WIN! I like
that bit best of all - finally some reality sets in! She does however get
I have to admit that for once Rio doesn't irritate me - he plays a good
big brother role to Kimber throughout this and it's kinda sweet.
