About Fanlistings

"A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are); they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans. TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not official) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting the fans." - from The Fanlistings

A Summary of Fandom

I've enjoyed Dianne's work for many years now: it always made me happy to see her pop up in things I was watching. When I saw Parenthood, Helen was instantly my favorite character, then Peg was my favorite character in Edward Scissorhands (yes, even above Edward), later Louise Keeley was my favorite in The Birdcage, and so on.

Then, in 2016, someone asked me who my favorite actress was, and I blurted out "Dianne Wiest," almost instantly. That was when I started getting more serious about seeing all of her work (those who know me will know I went on a similar journey seeing all of Adrien Brody's credits).

When I got back into joining fanlistings (also in 2016), I noted there wasn't one for Dianne. I fought the temptation of applying for a long time, because I felt there was probably a bigger expert out there who should own it. Eventually, though, it bothered me too much to wait anymore. So here we are.
