Kristen Stewart continues her own path with new Kelly Reichardt film

28 February 2015 1:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Did you know that Kristen Stewart made history a week ago? The 24-year-old actress became the first American woman to win a prestigious Cesar Award, France's own version of the Academy Award. She also won it for an English-speaking role.  Think about that for a second.  This honor hasn't been bestowed upon Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Sigourney Weaver, Natalie Portman, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon or any other globally acclaimed American actress over the past 30 years. No, it was Kristen Stewart who broke the French's reticence to reward anyone but their own.  Stewart, an actress who continues to (mostly) put studio work behind her following a string of acclaimed performance in indie films over the past year.  That career path continues with her next endeavor, the "Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project," In case the name is unfamiliar to you, Reichardt is an acclaimed director whose movies include festival favorites "Night Moves," "Meek's Cutoff" and "Wendy and Lucy. »

Jennifer Aniston Had a Ball With Isla Fisher's Baby Bump

28 February 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Aniston and her longtime friend Isla Fisher met up at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty on Sunday night, and the Cake star couldn't help but get playful with Isla's growing baby bump. She kneeled down and posed for photos while kissing Isla's belly, making for some supersweet snaps during the soiree. Isla and her husband, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, are currently expecting their third child together; the couple confirmed the news of their growing family back in October, and the new bundle of joy will join daughters Olive and Elula. While Isla and Sacha slipped into the Vanity Fair event without attending Sunday's Academy Awards, Jennifer and her fiancé, Justin Theroux, enjoyed the show in their prime seats behind Jennifer Lopez and Meryl Streep after Jen tried to pick up Emma Stone on the red carpet. Jennifer also took the stage with David Oyelowo to present the award for best documentary feature. »

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

Meryl Streep to Narrate Documentary on Women’s Health in Africa

26 February 2015 11:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Meryl Streep will narrate the feature documentary “Shout Gladi Gladi,” co-directed by Adam Friedman and Iain Kennedy and focusing on women’s health in Africa.

The film has an emphasis on fistula, a debilitating condition that turns once-healthy women into outcasts. The documentary is being made in collaboration with Ann Gloag’s Freedom From Fistula Foundation, and explores Gloag’s experiences working with women in Kenya, Malawi and Sierra Leone.

The film also features appearances by Melinda Gates and Nobel Peace laureate Wole Soyinka. Friedman will produce the documentary through his Vertical Ascent company; Gloag will exec produce.

“This powerful film attests to the igniting power of one woman, Ann Gloag, to set in motion hundreds of helping hands, doctors, nurses, caregivers, family and friends, to resuscitate the health and status of victims of fistula, and to give them back their lives,” Streep said.

Tom Rothman’s Top Priorities at Sony: Cut Costs, Make Peace

25 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Entertainment endured a corporate tsunami last winter on the scale that few Hollywood players have ever faced, after its inner workings were laid bare by hackers.

By picking Tom Rothman, 60, an exec who approaches business and life with hurricane-force intensity, to run the studio, Sony’s leadership is unleashing another round of disruption in Culver City.

The surprise appointment by Spe chief executive Michael Lynton is intended to forsake the status quo, rein in costs and create more movie franchises to compete with rival studios. Rothman’s elevation is also expected to roil Sony’s executive suite and on-lot producers, and could potentially strain relations with some top talent.

The safe bet in the days leading up to Rothman’s ascension was that Sony would tap Doug Belgrad, the well-liked motion picture group president, to succeed ousted studio chief Amy Pascal. But Rothman’s prior experience co-running Fox Filmed Entertainment, »

Source: Getty / Steve Granitz Patricia Arquette was honored once again this award season for her work in Boyhood when she picked up the Academy Award for best supporting actress at the Oscars in La on Sunday night.
