It is not too shabby in what the Northeast (New England) part of the United States has produced in terms of past and present actors/actresses making their show business dreams come true. Film careers can be a lot like ice cubes–they start out solid and cool but if you sit around in stagnation your efforts and hard work can melt away before one’s very eyes. Certainly no one can accuse this talented crop of thespians of being one-hit wonders on the big screen. After all, one does not become a recipient of an Academy Award by just sheer luck and charitable fortune.
As a native Bostonian and life long New Englander, I felt compelled to spotlight those Massachusetts-born and bred actors from the same region that had ultimate success on the big screen in winning the Oscar for their acting achievement and contribution to the motion picture industry. »

Once upon a time, Oscar winner and feminist supreme Geena Davis was unhappy with the gender inequality in preschool programming — so unhappy that she established the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, an organization that works within the entertainment industry to improve gender balance and reduce female stereotyping. So how come she's playing a Disney princess? Because this one kicks butt! On July 11, Davis will voice the role of Peri, an adventurous princess doll, on the Disney Channel hit Doc McStuffins (9:30 a.m./8:30c).

Actresses Kerry Washington, Geena Davis, and Amy Madigan are challenging incumbent Annette Bening to be a governor for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Each branch of the film academy has three governors on staggered terms, so one of them is up for election every year. It is Bening's turn to either be re-elected or replaced by this Friday's deadline. Results will be announced next week. The other two acting branch governors are Ed Begley, Jr. and Tom Hanks. Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the current Academy president overseeing the Oscars, is on the ballot again for the public relations branch. If she does not get re-elected, she will only be a one-term president. Producers branch governor Gale Ann Hurd is being challenged by Albert Berger, Jennifer Fox, Jennifer Todd, and Gail Mutrux. Writers branch governor Phil Alden Robinson faces off against Larry Karaszewski, Callie Khouri, and John Logan. Directors »
As the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science conducts its annual board of governors election, actresses Kerry Washington, Geena Davis and Amy Madigan have thrown their hats into the ring as potential governors of the actors branch, challenging incumbent Annette Bening. Each of the Academy's 17 branches are represented by three governors, who in turn each serve three-year terms. The terms are staggered, so the members of each branch elect or re-elect one governor each year. Governors who are re-elected can serve up to three successive three-year terms, and then, after nine years on the

When mixing black and white movie characters as either friends or foes on the big screen should not produce any gray areas at all. Whether amiable or adversarial the pairing of interracial tandems makes for an interesting sociological study in cinema where tension, togetherness, stereotypical profiling and mutual or reluctant acceptance makes for some captivating film fodder.
Sure, in many ways it is an overused cliched in the movies to produce racial tandems for the sake of the entertainment to allow the creative juices to overflow. In Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems we will take a look at various “salt and pepper” teams as they come together in the name of law and justice, hostile necessity, friendly frivolity or professional attachment to bring movie audiences a sense of adventure and curiosity in the name of comedic or dramatic license.

Susan Sarandon, the costar of "Tammy" who plays the titular Melissa McCarthy character's alcoholic grandmother, says it's actually not hard to play a crazy character. In fact, it's pretty liberating. "I think the first thing that anybody has to do is make fun of themselves. Besides doing hallucinogens, that's the biggest way to let go of your ego. You have to be able to just say, 'Ok that was stupid.' Once you're stupid a few times, it's really freeing." Check out our interview to discover the movie where Sarandon first learned to let go of her ego and act like a drugged-out lunatic. Also: We ask about her pal Geena Davis and the plans for her ping pong club Spin to go national. »

Everyone seems to have "Thelma & Louise" fever these days -- even Jimmy Kimmel!Weeks after Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis reunited to relive their pioneering selfie shot from the beloved 1991 classic, the "Tammy" actress recreated the iconic photo with the late night host."It was one of the first selfies, really, ever depicted in a film," Kimmel said of the picture, which featured Sarandon and her "Thelma & Louise" costar Geena Davis. "We invented that, really, at that moment," Sarandon agreed. "I thought it would be fun if we could recreate that," he explained. "I want to do a modern version of that photograph, with an iPhone." Kimmel naturally provided the props, and though the iPhone the pair used on the show is considerably sleeker than the Polaroid used in the film, everything else about the snap is spot on.Jimmy is no Geena, though ...Check out their special selfie in the video above, »

A couple weeks ago, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis reunited to relive their pioneering selfie shot from Thelma & Louise. Because it was internet-related, Jimmy Kimmel couldn't stand idly by without getting in on the action. Last night, he donned a wig and jean jacket (or jean-a jacket) and put his face next to Sarandon's. If he decides to re-create the other iconic T&L scene next, please read mean tweets about him at his wake. »

Didn't stay up for Wednesday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:
Proving that recreating a famous selfie is too much fun to pass up, host Jimmy Kimmel got in on the act with Susan Sarandon by dressing up as Geena Davis and posing with Sarandon against a green screen to re-do the iconic "Thelma & Louise" self-portrait. "We invented [the selfie], definitely, at that moment," Sarandon said of the 1991 flick. While Kimmel and his crew did an excellent job getting the little details -- including Davis's mole -- just right, the host admitted that in his scraggly wig, "I look more like the guy from White Snake" than Davis.

Every woman I know who is even slightly skinny-disabled adores Melissa McCarthy, and why not? She comes off as warm, joyful, and totally comfortable with her poundage in all of her print and TV interviews. Off-screen she’s a role model and an inspiration. And on-screen, she has perfect comic timing, a puppy dog’s smile that emerges now and then from her gruffest characters, plus a huge dose of self-respect. Hollywood probably hasn’t had a box office star like her since Marie Dressler in the Thirties, one who has so upended what a star should be. McCarthy might just be the anti-Julia Roberts.
Now first the good news: In the trailer for the forthcoming October release St. Vincent, which stars Bill Murray, we see glimpses of McCarthy playing a genuine human being. Yes, there’s much more to Melissa than a few bravura comic performances and a »

We’re at a point now where we have an idea what we’re going to get from a Melissa McCarthy film.
We’re going to get a character who may initially come across as loud and obnoxious, though in the midst of a lot of hilarious physical comedy you may just end up learning something from her.
But is that onscreen persona wearing thin with audiences after it was perfected in Bridesmaids with Kristen Wiig, Identity Thief with Jason Bateman and The Heat with Sandra Bullock? Not at all! And McCarthy’s latest offering, Tammy, proves it.
In the film, co-written by McCarthy and real-life husband Ben Falcone (who also appears early in the film as Tammy’s boss and also makes his directorial debut), Tammy is someone who, in a single day, loses her job, her car and her man and decides to hit the road with her »

In May, The Hollywood Reporter asked 2,120 of Hollywood’s top players — including Fox chief Jim Gianopulos, Disney's Alan Horn, director Gary Ross, producer Frank Marshall, Warner Bros.' Sue Kroll, agent Robert Newman, attorney John Burke and filmmaker John Singleton — to rank their favorite movies of all time. The result was “Hollywood's 100 Favorite Films,” which ran in the July 4 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine — and can be neatly summed up in a video just four minutes long. The video also includes commentary from Thelma & Louise stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis and

The issue of how society views women and girls is front and center these days. And many folks are stepping up the consciousness-raising that so clearly needs to happen. Geena Davis is on the case. So is Women and Hollywood. And so is documentary filmmaker Lauren Greenfield ("The Queen of Versailles") who has posted a wonderful spot for Always.com. Check it out. »

Geena Davis doesn't just play strong women onscreen in films like "Thelma & Louise" and "A League of Their Own" -- she also helps them succeed in real life, through her Institute on Gender in Media, which is behind some of the most thorough research on the media's depictions of gender and sex. Writing in The Hollywood Reporter for its Women in Entertainment Power 100 issue, David shares the research of USC's Dr. Stacy Smith, who found that for every single female speaking character in family-rated films (i.e., not R-rated), there are three male characters, and that crowd scenes in such films contain only 17 percent female characters. Shockingly, the ratio of male to female characters, according to the study, has stayed the same since 1946. As Davis puts it, "We are in effect enculturating kids from the very beginning to see women and girls as not taking up half of the space. »
