Working Girl

34 minutes ago | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Mike Nichols puts a glossy 80’s spin on what is essentially the plot of a Warner Bros. potboiler from the 30’s. Melanie Griffith plays the feisty career gal who stands up to a platoon of industry ogres to get what’s rightfully hers. Sigourney Weaver, Kevin Spacey and Oliver Platt are among the corporate creeps while Harrison Ford plays the executive in shining armor.

China Box Office: ‘Odyssey’ Clings to Top in Quiet Weekend

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The week following the National Day holiday was a miserable one for cinema-going in China. The box office slumped to its second lowest weekend of the year as holdovers took the top places.

Local fantasy, “A Chinese Odyssey: Part Three” narrowly held on to top spot. But its winning score for the Friday to Sunday weekend crumpled to just $5.97 million, according to figures from Chinese box office data service, Ent Group. That compares with its $37.5 million five-day opening performance a week earlier. After 10 days in theaters its cumulative score stands at $45.2 million.

Chinese romance, “Soul Mate” climbed from fifth to second spot, though its weekend score was also down. It achieved $5.34 million. After 10 days it has a $16.4 million cumulative.

Action movie “Z Storm II” (aka “S Storm”) came third with a weekend score of $4.70 million. After 10 days it has a cumulative gross of $23.6 million.

Jim Parsons Tops List of Highest Paid TV Actors With $25.5 Million

24 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Big Bang Theory” actors fill the top four slots of the 2016 “highest paid TV actors” list released by Forbes on Thursday.

Jim Parsons once again leads the pack with $25.5 million (before management fees and taxes). The four time Emmy-winning actor and his co-star Johnny Galecki, who is second on the list, both command a $1 million per episode salary. Still, “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara, who topped the list for female TV actors clobbers their earnings with $43 million.

Simon Helberg, who also scored a supporting role in “Florence Foster Jenkins,” is third on the list with $22.5 million. Kunal Nayyar is the fourth and final star of the CBS sitcom to round out the top of the list.

While Vergara’s earnings easily top her “Modern Family” co-stars, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O’Neill and Eric Stonestreet all cracked the top 15 for the men.

R.I.P. Curtis Hanson

21 September 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Last night, the cinematic world lost one of its own. Filmmaker Curtis Hanson passed away at the age of 71. The cause of death has been placed as natural causes. Hanson worked in the industry for well over 40 years, writing and directing movies that will stand the test of time. Oscar took notice in the late 90’s when Hanson made what most consider to be his masterpiece with L.A. Confidential, but he was a well known artist before then. He worked steadily on the big screen, also putting out the top notch HBO TV movie Too Big to Fail about five years ago. He will be missed in a big way. Hanson was an Academy Award winner and three time nominee, all for L.A. Confidential back in 1997. That highly regarded crime drama was a tale of corruption in the 1950’s, looking at how very different policemen dealt with enforcing the law. »

Curtis Hanson Rip: 1945-2016

Curtis Hanson--Confidentially


Alex Simon

Curtis Hanson was my first interview with a fellow film buff and film journalist. He was nice enough to sit down with me twice, first at the Rose Cafe in Venice, then at a lunch spot in the Marina, the name of which has been lost to time. He was then kind enough to invite me to the world premiere of "L.A. Confidential" at the Chinese Theater as his guest, my first time on the red carpet at a real-life Hollywood premiere, and called me after this piece ran to thank me personally. A nice man. Hanson, and co-writer Brian Helgeland, would go on to win Best Adapted Screenplay Oscars for "L.A. Confidential."

Years later, I ran into Hanson at a book signing party for Pat York that was held in Westwood. I approached him and reminded him of our interview a decade or so earlier. »

Curtis Hanson, Director of ‘L.A. Confidential,’ Dies at 71

20 September 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Curtis Hanson, director of “L.A Confidential” and winner with Brian Helgeland of an Oscar for adapting James Ellroy’s novel, was found dead in his Hollywood Hills home on Tuesday afternoon, a spokesperson with the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed. He was 71.

The official said paramedics responded to a call of an unconscious man at Hanson’s home at about 4:52 p.m. on Tuesday. He was pronounced dead at the scene. According to TMZ, which first reported the news, it appears as though Hanson died of a heart attack; while the Lapd spokesperson could not confirm that specific information, he said Hanson died of “natural causes.”

He had been retired in recent years and was reported to be suffering from Alzheimer’s.

As a producer of the stylish 1997 period film, Hanson shared the nomination for best picture and was nominated for best director. The film won an Oscar for actress Kim Basinger, »

The Stars Were Out For Netflix’s Emmy Party In L.A. At NeueHouse (Photos)

19 September 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It was a big night for Netflix, perhaps not because they won everything (like some networks), but because they managed to showcase their legitimacy as a content creator, and a diverse one at that.

The Emmy party at L.A.’s NeueHouse had people from every realm of entertainment – from Fuller House, to stand-up specials, to the winners for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series… well, I guess that’s a lot of comedy actually. Still, just about everyone connected to anything Netflix has put together was around, including Patton Oswalt, who quickly became the man of the night with his fantastic acceptance speech.

Attendees included Emmy winners Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang and Patton Oswalt, in addition to Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Neve Campbell, Joel Kinnaman, Donald Glover and cast members of Stranger Things.

Jimmy Kimmel Producers Reveal Emmy Show Secrets — And What You Didn’t Get to See

19 September 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just hours after they wrapped work on this year’s Emmys, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” head writers Molly McNearney and Danny Ricker were already back at the office, crafting tonight’s regular show.

“We’re very tired,” McNearney told IndieWire on Monday morning. “We had material due at 8:30 this morning, for tonight’s monologue. We were still at the party at 3:30 in the morning. I kept looking at my phone going, “All right, material is due in five hours… Ok, now it’s due in four hours…”

Added Ricker: “I considered wearing sweat pants to work today.”

Though groggy, McNearney and Ricker were enthusiastic about the reaction to Sunday night’s awards telecast, and the generally high marks that Jimmy Kimmel received as host.

“I’m hyper critical of these things,” said McNearney, who is also married to Kimmel. “After Jimmy does anything, it sounds terrible, but I will evaluate and re-evaluate everything — ‘Oh, »

68th Primetime Emmy Award Winners List

19 September 2016 1:44 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last night was the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the television academy takes the time to recognize some of the greatest accomplishments in the industry for the past season. Not surprisingly, the show that came out on top this year was none other than Game of Thrones, a show that seemingly only gets stronger and stronger as time goes on (despite the absence of source material at this point).

This also marked the year that Game of Thrones surpassed Frasier for the record total of Emmys won during a show run. Frasier previously held the record with 37 wins, and with two seasons left, Game of Thrones has secured the title with 38 wins, a record it's sure to barrel over over the course of the next couple seasons.

Below is the list of nominees and winners for several major categories at this year's Emmys!

Here's Why Kevin Spacey Brought Evan From Evan and Jaron to the Emmys

19 September 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kevin Spacey caused quite a bit of conversation on Twitter during the 2016 Emmy Awards, but it wasn't over his loss to Rami Malek for Best Actor or even his ensemble or anything that actually had to do with him. Rather, the talk was entirely focused on his plus-one, Evan Lowenstein. If that name rings a bell, it's probably because it sparks some nostalgia. Lowenstein, 42, is half of the brother duo Evan and Jaron, a '90s boyband who saw success from 1994-2003. You may remember one of their most famous songs, "Crazy For This Girl" from 2000. Ok, so now that we know who he is, the question remains: Why did Spacey bring him along? A source tells E! News »

Emmys Winners and Losers: ‘Game of Thrones’ Broke Records & Amazon is On Fire, But What About ‘Fargo’?

18 September 2016 11:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“FX” – Winner

Not only did “The People v. O.J. Simpson” wrack up the second most wins of any program, but the network more than doubled its total Emmys from last year — moving from eight to 18. That was almost enough to topple HBO (undoubtedly FX Networks President John Landgraf’s goal) and a number made all the sweeter by Louie Anderson’s win for Supporting Actor in “Baskets” to kick off Sunday’s ceremony. But still…

Fargo” and “The Americans” – Losers

Not everything went the way of FX. With “Fargo” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson” almost always competing against each other, the network was bound to lose with one of them (and we knew all along “Fargo” was going to draw the short straw). But Noah Hawley’s acclaimed limited series couldn’t even win when “American Crime Story” was out of the picture. That other “American Crime” show beat »

‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Veep’ Repeat Top Wins, But Fresh Faces Give Emmys A Huge Makeover

18 September 2016 8:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Peak TV finally got the Primetime Emmy Awards that it deserves.

Sure, “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” repeated their wins Sunday in the top drama and comedy series categories (giving HBO its second year of winning both). And legends like Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jeffrey Tambor continued their trophy dominance.

But underneath that, a whole new generation of fresh faces picked up their first-ever Emmys on Sunday night. Actors and actresses that seemed like long-shots just a few years ago were instead embraced by a large voting body that appears ready to embrace the new talent earning raves in this new golden era of Peak TV. Superstars and newbies alike hit the stage, and even the surprise winners were hard to argue.

Emmy Awards: 2016’s Biggest Snubs and Surprises

18 September 2016 8:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While the Emmy voters stood by favorites like “Veep,” “Game of Thrones,” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” there were quite a few surprises and snubs in store this year as well.

Surprise: Tatiana Maslany

Going all the way from the top of everyone’s “snub” lists to an Emmy winner, the Canadian dynamo picked up a lead actress trophy on her second nomination for BBC America’s “Orphan Black.” Playing more characters on a regular basis than anyone else on television, Maslany earned this one with four seasons of seamless performances. There’s gonna be a major party in Clone Club tonight.

Surprise: Ben Mendelsohn

The Aussie actor (soon to be seen in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) received his second consecutive nomination for Netflix’s thriller “Bloodline,” but few expected him to win — especially considering his significantly reduced screen time in Season 2. Mendelsohn triumphed in a field that included former »

Rami Malek Wins First Emmy of His Career for ‘Mr. Robot’

18 September 2016 8:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Yes, Rami Malek. We’re seeing this, too.

Malek won his first Emmy — for outstanding lead actor in a drama series — for his role on “Mr. Robot.” “Please tell me you’re seeing this, too,” Malek said as he took the stage, referring his small-screen counterpart Elliot Alderson, who sees things that aren’t real.

Malek capped his breakthrough year with a win for his role as moody, mentally disturbed hacker Elliot on USA Network’s “Mr. Robot.” The actor earned a Golden Globe nom earlier this year.

“I want to honor the Elliots,” he said during his acceptance speech. “Because there’s a little bit of Elliot in all of us.”

“I am honored to be recognized with such a distinguished and accomplished group of actors,” Malek added. “I’m honored to stand here and represent my family and every single person who has helped me get this far. I »
