Stream This: Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda Weather Divorce in Grace And Frankie

28 May 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[Editor’s Note: Welcome to “Stream This,” our weekly feature where we single out television programs and movies of considerable merit that are available on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Crackle, or other streaming services. Look for a new recommendation every Thursday.] Let's forget, at least for the moment, how refreshing Marta Kauffman and Howard J. MorrisGrace and Frankie's depiction of getting old is, how unfettered and optimistic the trajectory of the titular divorcees is when characters their age are often relegated to sage status or mere afterthoughts. That's a big step, mind you, and exactly the kind that Netflix has been routinely taking as of late by reaching outside of the key 18-49 male demographic (which this reviewer would be included in), but that's really only the first interesting element of this very funny show. Far more interesting, and what ultimately gives the show its mildly contemplative vibe -- at least for the sitcom format --  is its thematic fascination with forgiveness, and how age reveals the pettiness and insignificance of squabbles, grudges, and gripes.

Netflix Renews Grace and Frankie for Season 2

27 May 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Get ready for more Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin! Variety has confirmed that Netflix has renewed the Fonda/Tomlin starring vehicle Grace and Frankie for a second season. It is expected that Season 2, which also stars Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, will debut in 2016. From Marta Kauffman (Friends) and Howard J. Morris (Home Improvement), Grace and Frankie tells the story of two frenemies who find solace in each other after their husbands surprise them with the revelation that they are both gay and planning to marry. The series also features the characters’ children (Brooklyn Decker, June Diane Raphael, Ethan Embry, and Baron Vaughn) in lead roles, and Season 1 guest stars have included such names as Craig T. Nelson and Ernie Hudson, among others. Grace and Frankie got off to a bit of a slow and uneven start, but the series really begins to find itself in its third episode and truly comes into… »

Netflix’s Grace And Frankie Renewed For Season 2

27 May 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given the warm reception for the show’s charming first season, it should come as no surprise that Netflix has seen fit to renew comedy Grace and Frankie for a second season, to debut sometime next year.

The streaming service has a long-standing tradition of standing behind its originals – even less successful bids like Hemlock Grove and Marco Polo have earned second-season pickups, while it’s generally expected that the network will keep ordering more of its hit Orange is the New Black for as long as creator Jenji Kohan wants to keep making it (the unusually busy cast of House of Cards makes it a little less of a sure thing year after year).

Grace and Frankie was a deceptively audacious move for Netflix, however, lacking the four-quadrant hook that most of the streaming service’s other offerings have featured. The comedy centers on two aging women (Fonda and »

Netflix orders a second season of Grace and Frankie

26 May 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Grace and Frankie will return to Netflix for a second season.

According to Variety, new episodes of the comedy series will arrive in 2016.

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin lead the cast of Grace and Frankie as rivals who are left to comfort each other when their husbands declare their love for one another.

"Let me say, it's so awesome to do a show on Netflix," said co-creator Marta Kauffman.

"Because two and a half weeks after we launched, Miley Cyrus does a tweet about your show, and they call and say, 'We'd like to do a season two'. So yes, there is a season two. We have Ted [Sarandos] and Miley to thank."

Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston play the women's ex-husbands. Season one also featured Barry Bostwick, Joe Morton, Geoff Stults, June Diane Raphael, Baron Vaughn, Mary Kay Place and Ethan Embry.

Ken Howard Weighs Another Term as SAG-aftra President

26 May 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With nominations opening this week, Ken Howard is considering seeking a second term as national president of SAG-aftra.

Howard, 71, told Variety on Tuesday that he’s not ready to make an announcement on his candidate status but will fairly soon. He will have a month to decide, since the deadline for submitting nominating petitions is June 26.

He’s headed SAG-aftra since it was created three years ago and easily defeated Esai Morales and two other challengers in the merged union’s first election in 2013. Howard was first elected as SAG president as a moderate in 2009 and re-elected in 2011 — winning both times on a platform advocating the merger of SAG and AFTRA, which was overwhelmingly approved by members.

Nominating petitions are available Wednesday for the presidency, secretary-treasurer, national board seats, local board seats and convention delegate slots. Ballots will be mailed July 21 with results will be announced Aug. 20.

"You try to be as present as possible, but you have to be aware of the circumstances. You have to be aware of many things that the public is not aware of." The Grace and Frankie »

Just how unlucky is 'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm at award shows?

19 May 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jon Hamm has never won an Emmy. When he reaped his seventh consecutive Best Drama Actor bid last year as Don Draper in “Mad Men”, he distinguished himself from a half dozen of the most iconic leading men of the twenty-first century who had scored six nominations each: Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”, “Six Feet Under”), Hugh Laurie (“House”), Martin Sheen (“The West Wing”) and Kiefer Sutherland (“24”). Cranston won the race four times, Gandolfini three times and Sutherland once apiece. Hall, Laurie and Sheen were snubbed year after year like Hamm. -Break- "Mad Men" poll: Which episode should Jon Hamm submit to Emmy judges? But to equate Hamm with Hall, Laurie and Sheen would be to assume that Hamm’s bad awards luck is limited to the Emmys. Yes, he holds the record »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect.

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin Got The Same Paychecks as Their Onscreen Gay Husbands For 'Grace and Frankie'

14 May 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you've been watching Netflix's 'Grace and Frankie,' you know the absolute primary reason you're doing so is because of how awesome Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are in the title roles. And those roles are unquestionably co-leads, with the actresses collectively carrying a show that often stumbles when it attempts plots that don't have anything to do with either of them. But apparently Netflix thinks the two actresses are worth just as much as the actors -- Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson, respectively -- who play their ex-husbands on the show. Even though they seem to have about half the screen time (and half the audience interest). According to this article, Tomlin, Fonda, Sheen and Waterson all got the same salary for the series, and the actresses rightfully spoke up about this absurdity.  "[Tomlin] found out [Waterston and Sheen] are getting the same salary that we are," Fonda said. "That doesn't make us happy. »

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin Go Public About Their Unfair 'Grace and Frankie' Paychecks

13 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Equal work should receive equal pay, while more work should receive more pay, right? Apparently no such logic exists at Netflix HQ. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who star in the new streaming series "Grace and Frankie," made public their unhappiness with their paychecks from the sitcom, which have the two female leads earning the same amount as their male supporting actors, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston.  "[Tomlin] found out [Waterston and Sheen] are getting the same salary that we are," said Fonda at a Netflix press day. "That doesn't make us happy."  "The show is not 'Sol and Robert,'" added Tomlin, referring to Waterston and Sheen's characters. "It's 'Grace and Frankie.'"  Fonda and Tomlin join a few other actresses, such as Judy GreerCharlize Theron and Patricia Arquette, who have made equal pay for women a political issue in Hollywood.  Read Next: Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin Rise Above...

John Oliver Says Calling Him a Journalist Is ‘an Insult to the Current State of Journalism’ (Video)

John Oliver shot down the notion that he’s a journalist during an interview with Fusion host Jorge Ramos. “You have more credibility than most journalists here in the United States and, I would say, in many other countries,” Ramos said to Oliver, who recently interviewed Nsa leaker Edward Snowden for his HBO show, “Last Week Tonight.” “No, I’m a comedian,” Oliver said, and then explained if he is considered a journalist, then there’s a problem with the industry.
