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

13 hours ago | 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

20 hours ago | 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.

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, »

Into the Woods is hitting on Blu-Ray March 24th, and this one has a lot of great bonuses. Of course, it’s to be expected from Disney, but beyond that, this is one that doesn’t even need a lot of bonuses. Check our Into the Woods review here for the full report on the film itself.

Among the bonuses are a commentary track, several behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a look at the cast.

Not only was this a really great movie (and I’m no huge musical fan), but it’s one that, like most things Disney, is going to go into heavy rotation.

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. While on stage, she took the opportunity to make a powerful statement about women's equality and equal pay that had Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lopez, and others in the audience nearly jumping out of their seats with excitement. Her discussion of the topic continued in the press room, where she spoke further about women's equality. Read her quotes and her follow up statements on Twitter, and watch the full video below. "It's time for women. Equal means equal. The truth is the older women get, the less money they make. The highest percentage of children living in poverty are in female-headed households.

Oscars outrage: Patricia Arquette's speech about equality applied to Academy Awards'

24 February 2015 2:22 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

24 February 2015 1:09 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Patricia Arquette has a lot to celebrate — but first she wants to clear a few things up. The Boyhood Oscar winner inadvertently stirred controversy on Sunday, Feb. 22, when she used her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress to champion equal rights for women. While her remarks on stage earned wild applause from the crowd inside L.A.'s Dolby Theatre — and enthusiastic support from fellow nominee Meryl Streep — her comments in the pressroom weren't as well-received.

''Appalled'' Stacey Dash Thinks Patricia Arquette's Oscars Speech Was Out of Touch: ''Kennedy Passed an Equal Pay Law''

23 February 2015 6:43 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's just say, Stacey Dash didn't have the same reaction to Patricia Arquette's Oscars speech as did, say, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez. "I was appalled. I couldn't believe it," Dash said on this morning's Fox and Friends in response to what was one of the most memorable lines of the night, Arquette's much-applauded remark that "it is our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America." What, no good? "First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history," Dash said. "In 1963, Kennedy passed an equal pay law. It's still in effect. I didn't get the memo that I didn't have »

23 February 2015 6:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Social issues took center stage at last night's Oscars and Et looked into how these powerful moments turned the broadcast into a game changer.

Can an Oscar Speech Spark Social Change?

23 February 2015 4:51 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s routine for Oscar winners to use their platform before a worldwide audience to push a social problem into the spotlight.

That was true in spades at this year’s Oscarcast, as recipients called attention to voting rights, incarceration rates, teen suicide, Alzheimer’s care, veterans’ mental health, immigration, government spying, Als funding and more.

In the Dolby Theater and on social media, Patricia Arquette’s call for equal pay for women got some of the biggest reaction, bringing celebrities like Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez to their feet and generating a flood of second-day op-eds and analysis.

Will it matter?

It’s next to impossible to measure what impact a speech has on moving a social or political cause, although such calls to action do generate at least momentary bursts of awareness.

That appears to be the case with Julianne Moore, who talked of Alzheimer’s in her acceptance speech for “Still Alice, »

Welcome to a special Oscars edition of Outrage Watch, where we break down all the things folks are peeved about from last night's big show. Top story? Let the Patricia Arquette backlash begin. Did you catch the Best Supporting Actress winner's acceptance speech? Meryl Streep loved it! American was on her side, mostly. And then...she went backstage. “The truth is, even though we sort of feel like we have equal rights in America, right under the surface, there are huge issues that are applied that really do affect women," said the Best Supporting Actress winner to the assembled press corps. "And it’s time for all the women in America and all the men that love women, and all the gay people, and all the people of color that we’ve all fought for to fight for us now.” Hmm...maybe she just got caught up in the moment? »
