The Shondaland star explained that saying “yes” to Annalise Keating was “a no brainer,” but not everyone on the panel was as loose-lipped. Even after a jaw-dropping finale on “Htgawm,” writer-creator Peter Nowalk kept any information about the ABC show’s impending second season under wraps.
“I don’t like to spoil anything. Obviously the fun of the show is you don’t know what’s coming,” he said.
Moderated by Debbie Allen, who directed an episode of the drama, the Q&A event revealed that viewers »

This Week: Oscar winners Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges in a fantasy howler, the return of Ray Donovan, and the long-delayed whodunnit The Loft. ► The fantasy dud Seventh Son was originally supposed to open two years ago. So imagine how thrilled Julianne Moore was to see it open just a couple weeks before this year.s Oscars. She still won, but the stench of this dubious bomb will cling to her for awhile.

Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence and Julianne Moore -- our five most recent winners in this category -- all have extremely baiting new films coming out this year, and it's entirely possible that they all come back and make this an epic race of almost all very recent winners. Could they be joined by a slightly less recent winner if Charlize Theron pulls a Sigourney Weaver and gets an all-too-rare (and extremely deserved) nomination for an action film with "Mad Max: Fury Road." Of those six potential nominees, two of them are in films we've already seen at either festivals or in theaters, and they join a very impressive roster of other lead performances that have already seen the light of day (or dark of the movie theater, as it were). There's actually considerably more contenders here that we've already seen than in the Best Actor category, »

The Cannes Film Festival came to a close on Sunday, with stars making one last appearance on the famed red carpet. Celebrities began pouring into the French Riviera last week, and the film festival only got more star-studded with each day that passed. Kendall Jenner turned heads on the red carpet on Wednesday, but the big names also spent plenty of time letting loose. On Monday, actresses Rachel Weisz, Mélanie Laurent, Emily Blunt, and Sienna Miller linked up at Calvin Klein's Women in Film celebration. Last week, Jake Gyllenhaal and Sienna got the party started by the sea, and actors hit the red carpet for the hotly anticipated opening ceremony. No one had a more photogenic arrival than Lupita Nyong'o, who practically glided across the carpet in a green Gucci gown that revealed her glowing skin. Paying homage to the festival's glamorous history, stars like Jane Fonda, John Legend, and »
“Do something funny for money” was the slogan of NBC’s inaugural “Red Nose Day” telecast, a live three-hour show that helped raise more than $21 million to aid children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad.
The telecast that originated Thursday from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom went off with only a few minor hitches that were probably not visible to the viewing audience at home.
Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski each hosted an hour of the program that blended pitches from stars such as Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde and Gwenyth Paltrow with taped comedy segments produced by Funny or Die and in-studio bits from “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost, Michael Che and Jay Pharaoh, as well as Billy Eichner and Josh Groban.
In between the entertainment, short films featuring celebrity appeals on behalf of specific causes struck a serious note. Jack Black traveled »

Underestimated by many including us, and kept going by firm fanbase, "The Maze Runner" is a Ya franchise survivor in a sea of also rans. And it's a feat made more remarkable given there are really no big names in the cast — certainly none on the level of Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, and Philip Seymour Hoffman (to name a few) in "The Hunger Games" series or Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and more in the "Divergent" flicks. But yet, "The Maze Runner" pulled in a healthy $340 million worldwide last fall on a budget of $34 million. It's easy math, the numbers are good, and so comes "The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials." “The first movie was the mystery of ‘Where are we and what is this place? And can we get out?’ But the second movie is about the repercussions of getting out and the discovery of »

Julianne Moore and Variety’s Steven Gaydos were on hand to honor rising stars Jack O’Connell (“Unbroken”) and Lola Kirke (“Gone Girl”) at the elegant Chopard Trophy ceremony that took place on the rooftop of the Martinez Hotel on Friday night.
“When you start out all you know is that you want to do it, it feels good to do it and you would do it for free but what you don’t know if you’re any good. But when you see a good actor, you can see it right away. And we saw Jack O’Connell and Lola Kirke immediately the minute they burst onto the screen, they’re beautifully alive on camera, it’s palpable their talent,” said Moore. “We’re so happy to have you, we’re excited to see your work and we know we’re going to see your work for many years to come, »

The first reactions to Todd Hayne’s period romance “Carol” were some of the strongest of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, where the lesbian drama starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara debuted to the press on Saturday night.
The Weinstein Co. release, which is adapted from a novel by Patricia Highsmith, also drew attention for the 1950s costumes by Oscar winner Sandy Powell, who designed the costumes for Haynes’ “Far From Heaven.” It will be released Dec. 18, a prime awards season spot.
Sasha Stone of Awards Daily said, “Weinstein is right in saying ‘Carol’ has the stuff. I think Hollywood will finally give Haynes the directing nod he so richly deserves. »

In a perfect world, Nicole Holofcener would be cranking out movies at the same rate as Woody Allen, but I'll take what I can get. Since 2013's lovely "Enough Said," the filmmaker has mostly been working on television shows like "Togetherness," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," and "Inside Amy Schumer." But now she's got a new feature brewing and as always, it's promising stuff. Newly anointed Oscar winner Julianne Moore and Chris O'Dowd will star in Holofcener's "Can You Ever Forgive Me." Based on the memoir by Lee Israel, it tells her story about turning to counterfeiting letters of dead writers and celebrities, and selling them to make ends meet. Here's the book synopsis: Before turning to the criminal life, running a onewoman forgery scam out of an Upper West Side studio shared with her tortoiseshell cat, and dodging the FBI, Lee Israel enjoyed a celebrated reputation as an author. When her »

Chris O’Dowd had a busy 2014 on the big screen what with living on a small Irish island (Calvary), playing a schmuck in corporate England (Cuban Fury) and teaching in a New York school (St. Vincent). Part of this year now looks to be taken up working with Julianne Moore in Can You Ever Forgive Me?Director Nicole Holofcener has adapted the script from Lee Israel’s 2008 memoir. The story finds Israel (Moore) as a respected biographer who runs into financial difficulties. So she starts fabricating the letters of famous dead writers and celebrities in order to drum up the money to keep a roof over her head. But when her work begins to raise suspicion, she goes one step further and starts stealing actual letters from library archives, selling them through a fence she meets at a bar (O’Dowd, we assume is playing the ex-con criminal, not the bar). All the while, »
The world premiere of “Mad Max: Fury Road” gave the Cannes Film Festival a testosterone jolt with a feminist twist Thursday, as stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy, director George Miller, and other main cast strutted down the red carpet on a balmy evening as Van Morrison’s “Gloria” played.
Earlier, as a musical selection comprising plenty of Mowtown, Elvis Presley, and the Rolling Stones blasted, a slew of stars did their red carpet dances as the flashlights popped. Among them Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, Isabella Rossellini, Jane Seymour, Fan Bingbing, Michelle Rodriguez, Ethan Coen and his wife Tricia Cooke, and fellow jurors Guillermo del Toro and Sophie Marceau, who had a slight, very French, wardrobe malfunction on her way up the steps.
