Sterling K. Brown Opens Up About His Historic Emmy Win in Morning-After Interview

20 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sterling K. Brown can’t stop smiling.

It’s the morning after his momentous win at the Emmy Awards, and Brown is still grinning from ear to ear. Even on just a few hours sleep, it would be hard to extinguish that famous blinding white beam, what with back-to-back trophies to his name. After winning last year for his work as Christopher Darden in “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” on Sunday night he took home the prize for best actor in a drama for “This Is Us,” as the anxiety-ridden but oh-so-lovable Randall Pearson on the NBC-20th Century Fox production.

It’s been nearly two decades since a black actor claimed the prize — a profound fact that was not lost on Brown. Andre Braugher, who starred in NBC’s “Homicide,” was one of the first people he thanked in his acceptance speech. “It is my supreme honor to follow in your footsteps,” he »

Bun B and Scooter Braun on How a Justin Bieber Ask Morphed Into the All-Star Hurricane Harvey Telethon

11 September 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Houston rapper Bun B didn’t suffer any personal damage to his property during Hurricane Harvey, but the images of disaster zones taking place mere miles away made sitting back an impossibility.

“I’m sitting around in my dry house and seeing everything happening on television and I’m overwhelmed by compassion,” Bun B (real name: Bernard Freeman) tells Variety. “There was no way I could sit in this comfortable space when I know what people are going through.”

Of course, when a natural catastrophe of Harvey’s magnitude hits a major metropolitan city, it’s hard to know where to start. So Bun thought of the one person with reach so wide on social media (he just crossed the 100 million followers mark on Twitter) and an appeal so broad that people would have to listen: Justin Bieber.

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Tackles Pro Football Films

10 September 2017 6:44 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s the opening Sunday of the NFL, and what better time to celebrate the films that celebrate the sport that celebrate the ballers. Film history has a steroid-free stack of pro football films in all categories. Patrick McDonald, Jon Lennon Espino and Spike Walters of HollywoodChicago.com take on three prime examples.

The earliest known footage of a football game was a 1903 match-up between powerhouses Princeton and Yale, filmed by Thomas Edison. The earliest narrative films dealt with the college game, from Harold Lloyd’s “The Freshman” (1925) to the Marx Brothers in “Horse Feathers” (1932). An early example of a pro football movie is “The Cowboy Quarterback” (1939), which involves a scout for the “Chicago Packers” (gee, even in olden days screenwriters were lazy as shit).

The 20 Best Lgbtq Movies of the 21st Century

25 August 2017 11:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Moonlight.” “The Handmaiden.” “Carol.” The last few years have not only brought Lgbtq films and stories further into the mainstream, but queer films have dominated awards seasons and found commercial success. This has been a long time coming: The New Queer Cinema was a major influence on the indie film boom of the ’90s, and set the bar high for the many queer films to follow.

No longer limited by low budgets, films with gay and lesbian stories have flourished in the first two decades of the 21st century. There is something about the scrappy Diy aesthetic that will always be essentially queer — and the films below reflect a notable shift in the ambition and scope of contemporary queer films. While there may not be a new wave of queer filmmakers on par with the ’90s boom, in their place we got stories as complicated, sensual, soul-searching, and hilarious as the queer experience itself. »
