What’s That Blue Ribbon Stars Are Wearing on the Oscar Red Carpet?

23 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Some stars walking the red carpet at the Oscars sported a bright blue ribbon on their designer gowns and tuxedos, and it was all to call attention to a good cause. The ribbons were distributed by the American Civil Liberties Union (Aclu). Ruth Negga, a Best Actress nominee for “Loving,” showed up early on the red carpet wearing one, and was quickly followed by Best Original Song nominee and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Barry Jenkins, the director of “Moonlight,” one of the most nominated films of the night, also wore a blue ribbon. Also Read: Jodie Foster Leads Two Thousand at Hollywood's Anti-Trump. »

If The Academy Awards Really Wants to Send a Message to Donald Trump

26 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

One of the bigger stories to come out of the Academy Awards this year is something that has nothing to do with the awards show itself.  It was actually the skipping of an Oscars party by some celebrities to attend an immigration policy protest.  Jodie Foster and Michael J. Fox led the rally and spoke in front of thousands of people in support of protesting Trump’s proposed immigration ban.  That got me thinking.  While all the news you’re going to see today will be dedicated to Academy Awards stories, us included, and rehashing some Oscars memories, here’s an idea for

Jodie Foster, Wilmer Valderrama and Michael J. Fox Key Speak at Unity Rally Held in Place of Oscars Party

24 February 2017 8:49 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There were surprise musical guests, food trucks, and a star-studded roster of attendees -- but that's where the similarities with the Hollywood Oscar bashes stopped at the UTA United Voices rally, held Friday in lieu of the agency's usual swank after-party.

Actors, artists, musicians and humanitarians were joined by a crowd of around 1,500 people at the rally in Beverly Hills, to -- as comedian Keegan Michael Key put it -- "support the creative community's growing concern with anti-immigration sentiment in the United States of America and the potential chilling effect on the global exchange of ideas, not to mention freedom of expression."

Exclusive: Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton 'Cheers' to Continued Support of the Aclu and Fred Hollows Foundation

Two-time Academy Award winner Jodie Foster made a rare public appearance at the rally, admitting that she usually prefers to keep her activism out of the public eye. "As most of you know, I don't do »

11 Bigly Signs We Saw At Hollywood’s Anti-Trump Rally

24 February 2017 7:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

About 1500 people made it down to UTA headquarters today for the talent agency’s big pre-Oscars protest of Donald Trump’s controversial immigration ban. Sure, the ban targeting Muslim immigrants has deeply divided the country, but it united Hollywood — against it, naturally. So it is that while ears were fixed on Jodie Foster’s fiery speech, eyes were on attendees, who came strapped with protest signs denouncing — and mocking — the President. Well, except for the one dude who braved a swarm of liberal coastal elites to rep Team Trump. Here are some examples. Lots of immigrants make their home and their living in Hollywood, »

24 February 2017 5:57 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Now that we’ve talked out “Black Mirror” Season 3 with our therapist, it’s time to think about Season 4 of Charlie Brooker’s masterful Netflix series. The show, which looks at how technology distorts our lives, will be back for more frequently horrifying looks at our world, and how it’s reflected on our screens. Here are five things we know so far about Black Mirror Season 4. Jodie Foster will direct an episode. The “Silence of the Lambs” star knows a little something about horror. And her work on “Contact,” another bit of sci-fi social criticism, will prepare her well to work on. »

Asghar Farhadi Beams Into UTA’s #UnitedVoices Pre-Oscar Protest Rally in Beverly Hills (Video)

24 February 2017 5:39 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Heavy-hitter Hollywood talent agency UTA eschewed its typical glitzy Oscar party in favor of a Friday afternoon event — billed as the United Voices rally — in front of their offices in Beverly Hills.  Members of the UTA family and other entertainment industry players joined together, they stated: “to express the creative community’s support for freedom of speech and artistic expression, and stand against policies of exclusion and division.”

The idea for the rally was sparked by the recent news that Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi — a UTA client — would likely be forced to skip the Oscars (where he is a nominee for his foreign-language contender “The Salesman”) due to the executive order travel ban that prohibited citizens from seven Muslim countries, including Iran, to enter the United States. Though the ban has been halted, Farhadi announced that he would still not attend the event.

Jodie Foster Leads Anti-Trump UTA Rally: ‘It’s Time to Resist’

24 February 2017 4:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Jodie Foster was among the “United Voices” that spoke up against Donald Trump at UTA’s rally outside its Beverly Hills offices on Friday.

According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, more than 1,500 people people, including agents, clients, and supporters, gathered in the plaza to protest the Trump administration’s policies, including its recent travel restrictions on seven Muslim-majority countries. The agency canceled its annual Academy Awards party in protest of the ban and organized this event in its place.

“This is exactly the way to celebrate our industry and our commitment to humanity on and off screen,” Foster said. “I don’t do this very often, but this year is a different year, this is a singular time — it’s one to show up, time to engage. As the very dead Frederick Douglass once said, ‘any time is a good time for illumination.'”

Meryl Streep Is the Queen of Award Season, and She Has the Gold to Prove It

24 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Meryl Streep was honored with the coveted Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globe Awards this year. The annual award is given for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment," and past recipients include George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, and Morgan Freeman. It comes as no surprise that Streep was chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association as this year's recipient given the fact that she has been working in Hollywood for over 30 years, has an impressive award history, and has taken on a plethora of roles, including Joanna Kramer in 1979's Kramer vs. Kramer and Miranda Priestly in 2006's The Devil Wears Prada. Not to mention, Streep also holds a total of 30 Golden Globe nominations, making her the most nominated star in the show's history. In honor of her accomplishments (including her 2017 Oscar nomination!), we're taking a look at all the gold Streep has won over the years. »

Emma Stone’s makeup artist has no concept of time, but that’s probably a good thing — as it’s 10:30 p.m. when the artist picks up my call. With her longtime client at an event for La La Land, Rachel Goodwin finds a quiet spot in a Paris hotel to talk. She’s been on the road for days, and has a cold — but neither that or the hour dampen her mood. Goodwin is game to talk about makeup any time. And after an illustrious 24-year career in the industry, she still speaks about it with a level of drive, »

"Les hautes solitudes": A Film at Wit’s End

22 February 2017 7:34 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Jean Seberg in Les hautes solitudes. Courtesy of The Film Desk.It is a raw experience. No title, no credits of any sort. No soundtrack—although I defy anyone to watch it in absolute silence and not “hear” something, at some point, in their head. Just a series of “moving images” (for once the currently fashionable artworld term is correct), portraits in black-and-white, mostly trained on faces, or the upper parts of several bodies. There is no make-up, only minimal lighting and staging, and no post-production effects or clean-up whatsoever. The on-screen participants include Nico, Tina Aumont, Laurent Terzieff. And, most extensively, Jean Seberg—which may come as a shock to viewers not entirely au fait with the biography of the film’s director, Philippe Garrel. “Garrel’s camera sees Seberg honestly,” wrote David Ehrenstein in his book Film: The Front Line 1984, “as if discovering her for the first time, »

Black Mirror Season 4 Taps Triple 9’s John Hillcoat As New Details Surface

21 February 2017 1:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From The Road to Lawless to star-studded crime saga Triple 9, John Hillcoat is a director that specializes in the art of crafting dark, engrossing stories around deeply human characters, even if the latter two movies aren’t talked about in the same breath as his adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s apocalyptic masterclass – and rightfully so.

Since orchestrating a melange of crooked criminals and equally crooked cops in Triple 9, there’s been nary a mention of Hillcoat’s next project, but it seems The Tracking Board (via /Film) has today brought an end to that admittedly brief radio silence. Sources close to Ttb now claim the writer-director has climbed on board to direct an episode of Black Mirror season 4, Charlie Brooker and Netflix’s jet-black anthology series that examines far-future technology through a very particular, and often crushingly bleak, lens. The episode, rumored to be titled “Crocodile,” will purportedly focus on two female protagonists, »

The Manchurian Candidate and Jonathan Demme's filmmaking style

17 February 2017 4:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 20, 2017

Thriller remake The Manchurian Candidate is a great showcase for director Jonathan Demme's use of the camera to evoke fear and empathy...

Iraq War veteran Ben Marco wakes up on a train with a jolt. For a second, he sees an apparition from the past sitting directly opposite him. Marco blinks, and the figure vanishes.

Jonathan Demme’s remake of The Manchurian Candidate is full of small yet jarring sequences like this: moments which take place in a familiar setting, but with something strange or somehow out of place thrown in. Not long after Marco wakes up on the train, he strikes up a begrudging conversation with a young woman, Rose (Kimberly Elise), who says she's seen him around. Rose appears to have taken »
